Roadmap, bla bla bla

Trust me, this blog might become the only place where this “historic” date will be recorded/remembered.

Have i missed the big Reload?

Watched Matrix: Reloaded (also here). To say the least, it is a worthy sequel. A (very) few scenes are too long, but overall — the plot is interesting, the action is intense, the humor is kept at a reasonable level and there’s a good balance between effects and philosophy. There are a few points in the plot i didn’t completely understand, or maybe wasn’t supposed to understand, but i don’t wanna spoil it to anyone.

In the Rig Veda there isn’t much philosophy. It is, however, a beautiful peace of religious poetry. I sat five hours in the university library today, trying to translate 4 verses (1.42.7-10). The only reasonable dictionary (Grassman’s) translates to German, so i learnt more German than Sanskrit and eventually translated hardly three verses, but it was still very enjoyable.

Comb all of my hair

I love Joy Division. I bought Heart and Soul after watching the wonderful “24 Hour Party People” (also here) and hearing “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, “Transmission” and “No Love Lost” (the last two i downloaded randomly on KaZaA). Now i’m listening to the great 4-CD set. Till now — every song is a winner. I have a lot more listening to do, but those 27 pounds were definitely well spent.

Funny

The Lemon: History Of The Internet

Linked from Slashdot. I usually don’t even bother to click on their humor links, but this one is funny.

It mentions zombo.com. Now — i remember this word “zombocom” from somewhere, a movie or a cartoon … i remember some monster or something saying “ZOMBOCOM!!!” with a scary voice. And i can’t even look at this site, as it is probably slashdotted.
