I've got Elvis Costello's Brutal Youth (1994) on loop today. It's kind of like his When I Was Cruel (2002) with extra quirk. Sulky Girl, You Tripped at Every Step, This is Hell, Kinder Murder and 20% Amnesia are magic, and nothing is crap. Amazing stuff. I really have no idea what he was thinking when he made North.
I had some hope it would be good as I quite enjoyed The Thin Red Line, but it isn't, and even Martin Sheen couldn't redeem it. Pass with a push.
With Grégoire and Kyle in the CS lunchroom. There's a video projector up there now (recently installed, I believe), but the controls are in a locked cupboard and so we couldn't use it. We ended up borrowing another projector from Sibylle's office, and streaming it from gungnir (defunct) over the wireless network. Quite schmick, in the end. I found it vaguely amusing that Kyle couldn't convince his Apple PowerBook to play it, and quite strange that my laptop gave me so little grief — it's been a while since I've tried using the wireless card, and it never worked well at CSE.
