  1. What Did You Read Today?

    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. General Movie Thread

    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.

    So apparently Spring Breakers is really good. Who would've thought?

  5. What Did You Read Today?

    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.
  6. BFI Top 10 films

    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?"

    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.
  8. What Did You Read Today?

    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.
  9. General Movie Thread

    So, I watched Was Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom today and it was pretty good. I loved the first half of the movie, especially
  10. I slept in a bunk bed - one like this one - and I was always afraid of falling in the gap between the bed and the walls, because I was sure I would get trapped there forever.

    WinZip or WinRAR should work fine.

  14. Good versus Evil

    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
