This and That...

Listening to : "Com Lag: 2+2 = 5" by Radiohead (Import made for Japan)

Wearing: Blue

Eating: "La Turca" Doritos (Turkish variey of Doritos)

Drinking: Water. But lately I've been drinking more tea than usual (as opposed to coffee). Hmmm...

Feeling: Contemplative (as opposed to omniscient)

Latest Obsession: French Films.
Most recently I watched "Monsieur Ibrahim".
An excellent film (starring Egyptian film-legend Omar Sharif actually). It's a coming-of-age story about a young Jewish boy who befriends an elderly Muslim (Sufi) gentleman... There is some great dialogue in this movie.
There was one scene in particular which had a profound effect on me.
(I won't mention it, so I don't ruin it for anyone). You must see this film. Really...

Quote of the day: "There are trivial truths and there are great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true"--- Neils Bohr (Physicist/Mathematician)


Haiku of the day:
Still uninspired
Still wired and still tired
Still un-acquired



And I will leave you with the following thought:
"Common sense is what tells you that the world is flat"
(A quote from the "Principia Discordia").

Comments:
Where the hell you get all these movies from?

Feeling Contemplative and posting a quote on kinds of truths and a quote from the principia on common sense. What the hell is going on?

The last line of your haiku is kinda of a call to all the single boys out there, If so ... ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME. ;)
I know I could be mistaken but at least I gave it a shot.

The movies: I get them from here and there... (You'd be surprised what the little stores in Hawalli have). The last one was from a friend of mine--he has all sorts of obscure goodies.

The quotes: I'm always reading weird things. And "The Principia" is my modern-day-acid-trip-words-of-wisdom outlet. Cuz "Everybody I know who is right always agrees with me" (another one of their genius quotes)

The last line from the haiku: LOL. I didn't realize it made me sound like that to "the fellas". And your response---well, I'm extremely flattered :)
 
Um, french films, watch some oldies by Godard, and hmm neseet isma, but he has good action movies, like the one set in South America and they have to transport TNT, very powerful movie, They remade it of course (stupid americans).
 
cool movie, even with subtitles.
 
Enjoyed a lot! »
