Lots and lots of little trivial things happening. Here are but a few…

  • I’ve been playing around with an idea for a simple web-app that will allow me to test out the Google App Engine. It also forces me to learn a little bit about Python. All I need now is an account on the App Engine. But then I haven’t finished the app yet, so no rush;

  • This past three-day weekend I went off the grid and took to the hills for a very different (and special) kind of hike. My feet have blisters on their soles, but I did walk ~90Km and did a lot of philosophizing and soul-searching and it felt really good. Walking like Donald Duck for the next few days, well, that I could do without;

  • There are two “new” albums out there that could have been great. They are the Bauhaus’ “Go Away White” and The Breeders’ “Mountain Battles”. Both of them could have been great, but then both of them are “meh…”, at best. A shame really, I don’t know what artists of this caliber can be thinking of releasing this stuff. Might as well release another “Best Of”;

  • Finally caught the “Blade Runner” on the big screen last night. There’s a reason that film is still a cult film after all these years. Watching it on a big screen with very decent quality and great sound was a great experience. Fun times!
