✺ The Quest Begins

7:40am: Sipping on a cup of coffee and staring out the window at the uncharacteristically blue sky; I'm thinking about how hectic the last few weeks have been while at the same time how little I've been able to achieve. But, everything in due time, I suppose.

7:49am: Eventually I will try to incorporate more fun things in this blog. Maybe some day it'll get to a point where I'm comfortable sharing it to the world! (no it's not live... haven't shared the link yet!)

Speaking of... here are today's links!:

  • Naked Lunch (IMDB): I've had that movie saved for years (!) and finally watched it a couple of days ago. That's the Cronenberg I know and love! I can't believe it took me this long to see this one... wait, let me drop another link right now...
  • Scanners (IMDB): also watched this one not too long ago! The quintessential eighties movie. For a guy who grew up watching The Hidden, Robocop, The Fly, The Terminator, etc. this one felt like “the one who got away”! I mean, it's perfect.

9:17am: We usually consider devices that try to do more than one thing as being mediocre at all the things they do. But nowadays our cellphones do so many things they ended up replacing our cameras, calendars, newspapers, voice recorders, maps (and GPS), televisions, calculators, etc.

9:56am: Dear Future Reader,

If you haven't noticed already, most of the entries in this blog are the stream-of-consciousness ramblings of a confused nerd. When you see a timestamp next to a paragraph, it means that the content of this new paragraph doesn't nicely follow the previous one: it's a new idea, a non-sequitur.

Thank you for your understanding.

3:57pm: Made it back home, I took the bus for the first time in this city. Since it was the middle of the afternoon, it was almost empty but I assume it gets crowded during the classic commuting hours. We'll see how it goes! What a beautiful day it was, too! I feel great.
