Unfortunately the only way I can help is by offering my congratulations and wishing you all the best for the future (hey, it's better than nothing, right?)

chungking express You may not believe this but I put this movie on my "to watch" list almost 5 long years ago, and I FINALLY just finished it, and one of the first things I remembered to do was come back here and reply to this post. The movie was amazing and evocative. I think I have to watch it ag...

I love reading Ebert. I constantly follow his blog, even despite his long-standing feud with video games. The guy puts in 110%.

I loved Juno. The excessively biting dialogue from Juno herself is a little excessive, but the whole movie has sort of a feel to it that incorporates that, and the vulnerable soundtrack (which I agree could have been a little less invasive), pretty well. It's sort of a young, hipster (dare I say tha...

Call me behind the times, but I was doing some Wikipedia reading just now, and after reading about a Tom Waits album, I was linked to a page describing Scarlett's musical career, which I didn't know existed until just now . I was aware that she had performed with the Jesus and Mary Chain, but I thou...

The Island. It was so-so overall. Of course Scarlett looked great. I just saw this for the first time the other day. Not to be a wet blanket, but I thought the movie was embarrassingly bad (I stopped watching at 1 45 and went back to finish the next day) and Scarlett looked terrible. She looks like...

I think that photo is pretty much overboard on all counts.. I actually don't find it attractive for that reason. But as was mentioned, we seem to have different tastes here.

I had heard similar things about the teaching over there.. that excessive supply had driven pay rates down which just won't fly in a city that expensive. Plus I'm reasonably intimidated by the implied class system in Japan and how easy it is to come off as rude. I thought about it before, but if I e...

Very beautiful. I can never get over how crowded the streets are with signage and such. I must admit I barely noticed while watching the film.

I wish I lived in Glasgow. I love Camera Obscura, Belle & Sebastian, Lloyd Cole & the Commotions.. I would be run out of town there, though, because I have no interest in football.

I learned most of the Hiragana letters right away before I started learning even common phrases. I found it would force me to practice them instead of just defaulting to romaji. Anyway, when some words are written in romaji, they take on a more direct and less implied pronunciation than the Hiragana...

Learning Asian Languages

I was looking for a thread about learning Japanese/Korean/any other eastern language here today and couldn't find one. I did manage to find that wonderful thread posted by Ben-B with the learning Japanese videos. Have you ever tried to learn an eastern language, or any second language? I learned Fre...
