Okay, I lied. I've done an f-list cut of about 20 journals. Given that I fell tremendously behind with my f-list when I went away for three days, it made more sense to do this now than to be away for a week or more and then do it. I'll probably be testing the patience of some of you for a while longer still, because if your journal is public, I've set up tracking notifications on certain tags so I may still pop in to comment occasionally. Among the journals I've cut are a few I only added in recent weeks/months; sorry about the thing where I'm cutting your journal about five minutes after I've added it. If anyone needs an outlet to emo at me, please use email. It got embarrassing once in comments, and I'd just rather not do that whole thing. At any rate, I should still see more than a few of you around, since we have communities in common.
Over the past few months, I was increasingly putting baseball-centric posts under a filter. (No, really.) I won't be doing that anymore. As ever, keep me friended, or don't, it's up to you. I plan to get back to that place where 99% of my posts, whenever I feel like making them, are public.
...Still around? okay. While I'm here... >.>
-- I saw finally The Constant Gardener
a few weeks ago. It was pretty ...wow. A much hyped movie that really delivered, I thought. It was hard to watch but worth it. And I went and got the score, because the music was just beautiful. With the African influence, it's a change of pace from my usual scores. My favorite track: Kothbiro
- a lovely piece with African vocals that is something like the saddest lullaby you've ever heard.
-- I also recently saw The Departed
, which I thought was a great film. I'm not a Scorsese fan, so I hadn't paid the movie much mind, despite the positive press. But [Bad username or site: sensefille / @ livejournal.com]
expressed an interest in seeing it, and being an offday, I figured why not. A couple of times I had to look away from the screen, which was hard, because it was all pretty compelling and the performances were great - everyone really demanded your attention. I think the performances are really what makes the film because you've seen variations of this story so many times before. Nicholson, Damon and DiCaprio are all choice. I'd definitely recommend it. I was telling [Bad username or site: sensefille / @ livejournal.com]
that I feel bad that I never really think of DiCaprio as being A Good Actor, but I've seen him in more than a few things now and I'm usually pretty impressed with his work.

, GET CAUGHT UP ON GALACTICA. Last night's ep was for you. The ep made me a little sad, and not at all for the reasons I thought I would be.
-- It's amusing to me when my fandoms quite randomly collide.
A very short, unnecessary piece involving the A's and The Office
. But it made me smile.
-- If you're someone who's actually been looking forward to The Prestige
, you might want to poke around [Bad username or site: trailer_spot / @ livejournal.com]
's most recent posts. He linked to a sitdown between Bale and Jackman, as well as a couple of individual interviews, I think.
-- World Series starts tonight!
