I was writing on the Holocaust in Romania, which should've been interesting but the horribly narrow topic gave no scope to do interesting work, confined it to a rigid theoretical analysis, and wasn't helped by a relative lack of sources. Ugh, frustrating.

And wow, it's only on until Wednesday there? I believe it's playing for a month or so here. Still time to make a trip to the 21st century ...

HAHA!! Yeah, as usual we're back in the dark ages here, tho i guess i should be suitably amazed that we even HAVE a 3D cinema in this little backwater LOL.

Hmmmm....sorry but i'm not up on Romanian history

Hey, at least you got to see it in 3D! My vision's fucked so it only appears as 2D for me. If you close one eye, you'll see the movie how I do. I'm jealous of all you people getting the 3D experience. Melbourne can't do EVERYTHING, apparently.

I've done bits and pieces on Romanian history before and thoroughly enjoyed it. But this time it sucked. I blame the lecturer entirely, and today I skipped my lecture because frankly it seemed more enjoyable to go grocery shopping than listen to him ramble on.

Oh I remember those days....skipping lectures (tho, admittedly you were probably more likely to find me in the bar than doing the shopping )

So, Bono didn't reach out and wipe your tears away then?

I try not to skip lectures, at least not those by lecturers I like, but this guy is irritating me. He needs to go back to Israel and lecture in Hebrew.

Ha, actually, the "wipe your tears away" part was one of the very brief moments where I got something of a 3D effect. There was also a moment late in Vertigo where Adam became a little 3D, and at a couple of points the effect worked with people in the crowd. But that was it.

That's a shame - did you see it at IMAX or just a regular cinema? I find the IMAX goggles really weird (tho I did only go once many years ago!)

Saw it at the Imax. Even swapped 3D glasses with Ali to make sure mine's defective. Turns out though that with my vision, it's pretty much impossible for my eyes to properly process the images in such a way to get a 3D effect. The brief seconds of semi-3D were luck more than anything.

I'm reading random crap on Wikipedia. It's too late to do productive work.

Alright, time for me to disappear. I need to be up in the morning for a doctor's appointment.

Have a good one, folks!

Pulling an all-nighter?

It is awfully difficult to tear myself away from the blue crack sometimes ...
