galaxy

flickering lights

Ok, so I'm going for repairing the car. In the longer run my future does seem to be car-less, but again, as Keynes famously said... in the long run we're all dead.

Have finally joined Netflix and although I haven't made up my mind whether I'm keeping it or not, I'm enjoying the free month. Not that many movies; saw 'Ender's Game' which was ok but knowing how awful Orson Card is kind of tints my perception of the book and the movie. The Hobbit movies, which I never got around to watching in the cinema.. Again, ok but, again, as John Lennon said (or not), "I just had to look...having read the book.." but having read the book makes me jump with 'that's not right' and 'it's not like that' every so often -and, of course, how do you make a three full length feature movie series out of a three hundred page children's book if not by a lot of padding. The other thing I've done a lot is watch nature and space documentaries while I practise my scales or do other stuff. And so see the Keynes quote writ very very large -in the very long run, not only are we all dead, but our world and indeed our universe is... oh, ok, so we start the week-end with cheerful thoughts again....
