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!)
