You know, I never really got the love for Brazil. I much prefer the original 1984 treatment of the theme. Brazil turns it into kafkaesque comic absurdity rather than the Orwellian horror show. Admittedly, Brazil is the more realistic depiction of what that kind of state would actually be like, but I didn't find it as enjoyable a treatment as 1984, as a result of this decision.

REC 2, on DVD.

For those who don't know what this is, REC and its sequel are a couple of superior Spanish horror movies--rabid zombie stories with a supernatural twist.

REC is the story of a television reporter and her cameraman who are doing a news feature on night-shift firefighters. The fire crew receives an emergency call to an old apartment building. Soon after they arrive, horrific incidents begin, and everyone is trapped inside--quarantined by the authorities. It was actually remade in North America under the title Quarantine.

REC 2 begins right before the first movie ends, as a police SWAT team is sent into the building, along with a Health Ministry official. It reveals the secret behind the occurrences behind the first movie, which turn out to be much more than an outbreak of some kind of zombie virus. It's a wild mash-up of elements from 28 Days Later, The Blair Witch Project, and The Exorcist, told in a non-linear style that's reminiscent of Pulp Fiction.

I highly recommend both movies to horror fans.

Congratz, mate! Beautiful ring.

Is it only the flash on your camera or is the ring made of silver/white gold?
White gold! (she doesn't like the look of yellow gold on her skin tone)

We're already engaged, so she knows it's coming, but she's not getting it until the party to celebrate the engagement in 11 more days.
She will LOVE it! Excellent choice.

Bought some mascara yesterday. I have to get brown, which isn't easy to find, since I'm so pale; black mascara looks silly next to my uber-white skin.

Also picked up some lemon soap for the kitchen and some Dr. Pepper.

What an exciting life I lead.

Well, at least you can pick up Dr Pepper without any trouble. It's terribly hard to get your hands on some here in Germany.

See? I totally failed to prove my point that you do in fact lead an exciting life. But then again, there is something to be said for leading a safe, relaxed life. I should probably stop rambling now.

I know your problem; just the other week I bought a 2TB HDD and now there's only 412 GB available on that drive

^It is!

My list also includes the drives I use for media: my entire Star Trek collection is on those drives. (There's nothing quite like being able to watch any episode after just a couple of clicks ).
