I’m kind of big on not being cutting edge. Everything I get into, it’s behind the curve, I think. Still no PDA, I drive an old car, I watch movies after everyone else, stuff like that. Haven’t read any Harry Potter yet, maybe this week. I’m not sure why it is. Partly I’m lazy. Partly it’s a sort of inverse pride thing. And part of it is, I dunno, it’s like a built in filter. Let everyone else figure out what’s good and what’s crap. Saves me time.
Whoa, boring. Anyway, kind of in support of Jieun, I’ve been watching the first season of Alias (8 episodes in a single day… that’s what happens when Jieun’s out of town), and it’s pretty good! I dunno, it’s just interesting and entertaining the way things unfold. I actually like it a lot.
One random thing I like about it is the music. The score’s fine, but more the soundtrack. And not the Smash Mouth or the stuff they stole from the Matrix end credits, more the ethereal type stuff they use. I dunno, for some reason I like it. There was one episode also where I think it was Sting doing a cover of Someone To Watch Over Me. That was an interesting rendition.
Quentin Tarantino though… random.
Can you get any less cutting edge and unhip than me? I’m just now getting into Alias. Whatever.
