#1196689 Blade Runner 2049

Posted by scruffy1 on 06 October 2017 - 12:46 PM

I want to see it quite badly, but have never finished watching the original, because 9 yr old me could never stay awake.


considerably older me couldn't stay awake either, on the several occasions i tried


the first time i blame on cask wine, but subsequent attempts suggest it was the movie


vangelis soundtrack is auditory quaaludes i think

If you're wanting another TOS or TNG, then you'll probably not enjoy STD.

#1196618 What's on your mind?

if i didnt know Mac's list was about AFL, the Swans would be the sure only tip off to me.  and i know Carlton, Collingwood, and Footscray are definitely there somewhere.


i was in a cafe in melbourne once, having a fairly normal exchange with some dude.  afterwards, people were all incredulous like "do you even know who that was??".  turns out it was some kind of AFL big deal.


to be fair, the same thing could have happened to me in my home state of NSW too, if an NRL player wasnt famous before i grew up.



i get you


the number of times i would return to the nurses' station after being called to see a patient, only to have them want to know all about what they were like, and only then discover that they were apparently famous (albeit not to me) - international rugby players, league heroes, australian idol winners... all just another john (or joan) doe to me



i did recognise a few famous types - so famous that they were admitted under fake names to keep the paparazzi at bay, including a very beautiful now ex-wife  of a well know casino operator, and a (then) current prime minister - who was sick enough to have pity on even though i briefly fantasised whether i could get away with flushing his cannula with potassium and saving the country from his leadership, but realised it would be hard to get away with murder, and it's not my style really


more often i'd meet someone who i knew about, and would go back to the desk and announce, wow ! that was .... only to have the staff look at me as if i was on another planet, because apparently photographers and artists, and retired high court judges and politicians aren't famous in their circles generally

i understand that eveln, but once you extract humidity, 25c is not necessary - even simply dehumidifying air makes the "feels like" temperature several degrees lower than actual because sweat works like evaporative aircon


and for the record, our house is on a hill with good aspect and natural ventilation, and has fans in all the bedrooms, study and living room... well it did till we renovated, now there's a hole in the ceiling where we'll replace the old one that was past it (any moment perhaps... it's only been a year) - although i admit the aircon got used around 5 times last year for cooling

and miracle water ?


on second thoughts, that's not a hipster item, nor the almonds


they're both on the alternative medicine list of things you can do the get healthy that only require you to naively spend a lot of money and do nothing practical
