1:38PM - New Blog

My blog here is, I guess, mostly for the sake of updating where my new, abortive attempt at blogging resides. I've moved to a new blog, which has an introduction here: http://jundai.kurutta.net/articles/2005/11/30/welcome-to-my-new-blog.

12:44AM - I am not Jun-Dai

Jun-Dai claims that he's abandoning his livejournal, but Fear not, citizens of the interweb! I bring updates for cyberstalkers. To see what movies Jun-Dai has been watching, look here. To see what Jun-Dai has been learning, look here. To see which websites Jun-Dai uses frequently, look here. To follow Jun-Dai and Ben's progress in the struggle of good against awesome, go here

In other news, feeling a deficiency of love and affection from his friends in the United States, Jun-Dai has adopted a new companion from Japan (to replace the soon-to-depart Andrew). Wish them luck as they embark on this new stage of life together.

That's all for now!

12:11AM - blegh

I have nothing to say. But I'm going to test to see how html character encodings show up in livejournal.


Anyways. . . I saw the Hulk tonight. My life is about nothing but watching movies, and I'm fine with that (I'd like to have a piano, though). I enjoyed the movie--probably more than any of the other marvel comics-turned films--but not enough that I'd want to see it again. I suspect that the film will have trouble hitting 50 million this weekend, and that Universal will never see that $125 million again (or rather, not through the domestic box office figures). Too bad Ang Lee will never have that kind of money to play with in the future. It will be interesting to see where he goes from here. Will he make that musical he wanted to make?

2:52PM - on throwing up

My brother just gave me a pointer, which he in turn got from his friend Josh. It goes like this: If you drink too much and think that you're going to throw up, you should eat some starburst. "But Starburst doesn't seem like something that would keep me from throwing up", my brother replies. "Oh, you don't eat them to prevent yourself from throwing up. You eat them so that when you do throw up, it will taste better". This is sound advice indeed, and I think that the manufacturers of Starburst should use it in their advertising.

2:06AM - Searching the City for Cuticle Stix

I haven't really got anything to say, but I'm fishing for more pirate jokes (look at the comments for my first post).

I ate Dim Sum for brunch. I was a little off-kilter from too much drinking the night before, but I felt by no means bad. I saw Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary, which was quite enjoyable (despite much butchering of Mahler's symphonies--I could have done better with a couple hours and a couple of beers).

I abstained from going to Aman/Erik's birthday party (me<-bad friend), but after Dim Sum I crashed and didn't wake up until 9 (just in time to cook dinner, play a little poker, update this journal, and crash again). Hopefully tomorrow or so I will get a chance to see Together. Anyhow I'm off to bed again.

1:11AM - What's the geekiest thing I've ever done?

If it isn't this, then I don't want to know what it is. It is made geekier by the fact that I did it for these people.

I tried to teach Andrew Go tonight. This is after drinking beer and watching Ringu. I don't know how much he picked up, but at least I think his curiosity is piqued. He can already beat me at chess fairly consistently; I don't know how long it will be before he can beat me at go (not long).

Current mood: drunk

12:18AM - Saw X-Men 2 to-day.

X-Men 2 was an improvement over the first one, but I just say that because I can't really remember the first one. Probably I won't remember this one either. That's X-Men 2.
