armed with carlo gesualdo, the three-colours trilogy and the decalogue, a couple bottles of good white and a small stash of cigarettes (hell if it's the end of the world i might as well enjoy a final puff!), we are all set to spend the next 48 plus hours holed up at home.
a hurricane is just what i needed to inflict much needed rest. now, onto the first of a stack of novels.

when i can devote a good 50% of my weekend to watching films. am squeezing plenty in this weekend but the highlight so far is, unsurprisingly, a couple of classics in black and white. always had a huge soft spot for nicholas ray (ahem "Johnny Guitar") and though he is better known as the director of "rebel without a cause," his contributions to the film noir genres are what make him a stand-out in my eyes.

after an envigorating meal in K town, what better option to refresh the palate than red bean/green tea popsicles nextdoor. buoyed by the general merriment of the occasion -- our mic turning 28 -- we displayed some skills at licking, sucking and you get the jest. some of us were better at this than others. judge for yourself. ahem.
