let this be an unsaid goodbye, o' comic guy [Dec. 6th, 2007|08:10 pm]

i knew it would happen one day. and now that it has, i am inconsolably crest-fallen.

my comic book guy has quit his job at kinokuniya.

the good news is that he only moved downstairs to JB-Hifi. the bad news is that i don't shop at JB-Hifi.

kinokuniya has over the past few months garnered lesser and lesser sales from me. as much as it is my favorite bookstore, my loyalty still lies with my bank balance. and they can't beat the 40% discount vouchers Borders have been putting out. it doesn't help that kino hasn't brought out much interesting graphic novels either. (i missed out on that osamu tezuka one a few weeks ago. UGH)

oh well.

playing hooky from the daily doldrums of life has its rewards [Nov. 25th, 2007|10:37 pm]

it's weird how after being in a prolonged melancholic phase, that even the slightest experience of contentment makes you feel guilty about not maintaining the doom and gloom front.

it is with a very peculiar feeling in my bones tonight as i write about how my last two weekends have just been fucking great. really.

i went to melbourne for the fourth time, but fell in love with a whole different aspect of that city. over three days, i had breakfast at degraves espresso, shopped along all the lane ways, arcades and little streets, slept on a deck chair guzzling beer above curtin house on a breezy friday afternoon, and spied on scruffily debonair middle-aged men and some hipster asian boys at st. jeromes. and i fucking love that cafe along flinders lane - Journal.

AAAAAND! i met some people who knew the kino comic book guy. they have informed me that he is a complete nerd, even owning that light saber toy thingy. my guess is that he probably bought that goddamn thing from kino himself so people would stop pressing the fucking button and making the sound go off every 15 minutes.

so that was melbourne.

this election weekend is an entirely different story. i went on a day-long date with someone. a late yum-cha lunch, napping on the couch while watching "The Island of Dr. Moreau", dinner at his special italian place (where we bumped into his ex-girlfriend and her entire family which hates the shit outta him), and stood on a 'private' beach at brighton le sands on a full moon night (while getting eaten alive by mosquitoes) and a... um, post-event resulting from a 'malfunctioned shower head'. on sunday, he made me some eggs/sundried tomatoes/zucchinis on toasted rye bread with avocado spread for brunch, smoked cigars and drank port on the deck, and really just spent the rest of the day talking and laughing.

i must say, i'm the happiest i've ever been in a while. and the best part is that he only lives 10 kilometers from me. maybe the spell has finally broken. :)

work has been bad. i've been working across six different accounts and just over a dozen jobs, not including some additional shitty crap i was asked to do. as Chunky(lover) said - "at jessica's workplace, there are the incompetent people, and the veryyyyyy incompetent people".

today my eyes nearly bled from updating a fucking HTML file with Homesite. so in order to soothe my very tired eyes, we went to watch the very docile 'eastern promises' at bondi junction. i must say that it is a relief, for once, to have seat numbers specified on your tickets. i think i am beginning to get over the first-in-best-seats policy.

'eastern promises' is... mmm... intense. i didn't read the reviews but i trust that most would definitely mention a particular 'bath house scene', which i will not elaborate any further on, but if you are familiar with david cronenberg's work, it wouldn't be hard to guess why. let's just say it did not help soothe my bleedy eyes.

going away from the shock value, the film has a very significant theme about tattoos.

not that i've been thinking about getting one, but i've become quite fascinated of late with criminal tattoos, like the full body yakuza irezumis. in 'eastern promises', it is said that your life story is written on your skin. i looked up some of the tattoos viggo mortensen sported for this role and there is this one line written in russian - Пусть будет сном что пережито мною - which means "Let all I have lived be as if it were a dream".

isn't that just so poetic? :)
