june 5

Sorry for the lack of updates, quite busy lately. AMCAS, moving, unpacking, reading, watching, etc. The candle helps.

Mount Kimbie's new album finally pushed me to review something again, but I've certainly missed a lot of great stuff from last month (Glitch Mob, Tame Impala, DOM come to mind...). When I have access to my computer again, with all of my music, I'll try to recap things that shouldn't be missed. I feel a bit disheartened these days, as I can't shake the feeling that so much is passing me by, and I can't keep myself updated because of all the crap I have to do. You know... that feeling when Google Reader posts start piling...and piling...and piling some more. Terrible.

Some quick thoughts:

My impressions on Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses: This was the wrong movie to watch on Bluray. I am an idiot.

My impressions of UCLA's campus: There is a cafe geekily-called Cafe Synapse down the hallway from the lab I'd like to work in. This is a huge deal for me. If I take the 110 to the 2, then the 101, I might even be able to skip through the worst of rush-hour traffic. Actually, who I am kidding.

My impressions of the Panasonic DMC-GF1: I love this camera more and more every time I use it. I am constantly being amazed by the quality of the lens, and the size/look of the camera is simply unbeatable. I know a few people who I have picked one up at this point and no one seems disappointed. For a non-professional photographer, the GF1 is (almost) the perfect companion. I hate to say it but sometimes I feel like I won't be touching my 40D for a long, long time. I'll convert this into a proper post about the camera at some point.

My impressions of Umami Burger: The burger was okay. Pretty good. The thin fries though!!! Holy shit!!! With truffle-oil ketchup! (Even though all truffle oil is apparently fake!)

Looking forward to your review on the Panasonic DMC-GF1. A friend of mine back home was raving about it to me yesterday and I was thinking about picking one up before the end of the summer as side companion to my Nikon d90.

Also, Tame Impala! So good!
