exactly. plus it distracts me to have totally different people doing the voices, once i know something like that, i can't get it out of my head that the voice doesn't match the person. it's like that multi-grain cheerios commercial. once i found out it was dubbed, it was all over.

I can go without music for a while. It's not on all the time, but I guess if I lived alone it might be going at least 12 hours a day. Right now it's more like 9 or 10.

I unknowingly taped an English dub of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and was really hyped to see it, but had to delete it because of my dislike for dubs. It's hard to take it seriously, you know?
thanks

and yeah, comical dubs are totally different. they're hilarious. when done right, at least.

I like total silence occasionally. Of course, if I'm reading a book, there's total silence, too, but that does not count. I usually have music on if I'm not reading or watching a movie.....but, every now and then, it's nice to sit on my balcony and just take in nat sound.

I must admit, my lack of an attention span for movies kind of perplexes me. I'll disappear for hours with a good book. Sometimes I don't get enough sleep because three hours just vanish before I can put the bloody thing down. But movies? The whole "that's two hours, and I may not even like it, and I've got other stuff I'd like to do" argument tends to win out a lot.

So, it was actually sunny and really nice for most of the game, and only light rain towards the end.

Team played fucking shit though

Hey, man, to each their own, of course.....I cannot imagine my life without music, film, sports and books. I can do without any of the first three for a few days at a time (I can never not read), but, could not imagine a long-term absence of any of them.

No MP3 players allowed at work? Your employers are douchebags.

Or maybe just smart. I dunno.

some of us don't have balconies that is relaxing though, i should do that more with our deck, but i just don't.

i will say nothing is more relaxing to me than hearing the ocean. whenever i'm on vacation at a beach, which isn't too often, i always make it a point to stand on the balcony and listen to the waves, and sleep with the windows open if at all possible.

Ah, yeah, living with other people would certainly make a difference. When I lived in Brisbane with a flatmate, I didn't play quite so much music. Now that I live by myself, music is often the substitute for talking to somebody while doing boring chores or cooking dinner if nothing's on TV or whatever.

I wanted to like Blade Runner. I tried to like Blade Runner. I even watched Blade Runner a second time immediately after the first because I was so surprised that I didn't like Blade Runner. Until I saw Frantic, this was the first Ford film I just couldn't get into.

That being said, the ending was f*in epic.

nope. no electronics allowed whatsoever. not even cell phones. although given my job, i can see why ipods and such aren't allowed, especially since before the rule was passed, people were bringing laptops and portable dvd players into work and pulling them out at like 4 pm, when the building was still full of head honchos.
