Man, I haven't had update time all week, it's weird. I am sure you are all starving for news URLs! (Or, not.)

Last night, Agent Dieter and Toltec invited RQ, tze bebe and myself over for dinner, which was damn tasty, and a movie, which was less so. We watched Happiness. Written and directed by Todd "Welcome to the Dollhouse" Solondz, so you kind of know what you're in for. Randomly a great cast, though; I don't want to say they were wasted in this directionless piece, but I'm glad I saw it so I won't be wondering later. (Much like The Doom Generation, one of the few movies I can compare this to.) There were some funny parts, but, yeah. I can declare Phillip Seymour Hoffman the hardest working Joe Don Baker in show business, that's for sure.

[On an unrelated and enigmatic note, some interesting developments this week, over things from before. Some people just understand each other really well, but that doesn't eliminate the fear of miscommunication. And stuff.]
