  1. The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño. It was one of the best reading experiences I've had in a long time - it was like the book was written by Bolaño specifically for me. I'm reading some of Leopoldo Maria Panero's poems, but I can't wait to get my hand on 2666.
  2. I didn't, but I read some reviews from Venice's Biennale and pretty much everybody agrees its great. I wasn't expecting that from a movie starring Vanessa Hudgens and Demi Lovato.
  3. So apparently Spring Breakers is really good. Who would've thought?
  4. Just finished books 1 and 2 of 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. It took forever to get going and hook me and it didn't help that the perspective changed between chapters - when I got invested in a character, the chapter ended and I had to read about the other one. I can't even say that I could have skipped the first 400 pages, because they were important, but they didn't feel like that while I was reading them. Also, the dynamic in the dialogues was really weird, but I think that's more of a cultural clash.
  5. Wasn't the butler in the room when he said it, though? IIRC, when Thompson interviews him, he's all "Oh, I know what you want to know - it's about 'rosebud', right?"
  6. Or because films have been made for 100+ years all around the world. I think it's not as much going for "intellectual" films as critics having a global vision of the medium they are analysing. Of course older films or non-American films dominate, there's more material from 1898-1970 than 1970-2012 or from the rest of the world combined than just the US. That's just how critic works. Once you get to judge a piece of art as a part of the canon, you need some perspective. The Beatles, Hendrix or Led Zeppelin are regarded as the greatest because they have proved to be time-proof, which is something you can't say for any modern band or singer - just because you don't have that perspective. Also there's the fact that when you look at the past, there's already a defined list of what's "worth remembering", so most people have listened to Led Zeppelin.
  7. I've just read The Great Gatsby after I found a really cheap edition. Well deserved fame, although the finish is kinda convoluted - the fact that all the factors are introduced in advance redeems that, though. Before that, I read Yasunari Kawabata's The House of Sleeping Beauties. I have this weird thing with Japanese prose where I struggle to completely get it and I don't know if it's because of the translation or Japan's culture. I liked it nonetheless. Speaking of Japanese prose, I'm starting 1Q84 now.
  8. So, I watched Was Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom today and it was pretty good. I loved the first half of the movie, especially
  9. WinZip or WinRAR should work fine.

  12. I usually try to be a good guy. However, it isn't easy when you're playing Total War and your population start thinking it's a good idea to revolt against you. Once you kill half the people in the city, the survivors won't feel so tough
  13. Frank Gore throws better than Mark Sanchez.
  14. Who has called me HAGE!?

      God, I miss 2003 Toryumon so much.

  15. Has anyone stats for Kana around summer 2008? Thanks in advance. Edit: Nevermind, she's already in the game.
