Last night I checked out V is for you-know-what with Kevork and Mark at the Uptown theater in Cleveland Park. I hadn’t been there since seeing Star Wars Episode 3 on the giant screen that’s only matched by Mann’s Chinese theater in Hollywood, so it was a fun time. The theater was nearly empty at 10pm on a Tuesday night for some reason, so it was especially interesting hanging out in a huge empty opera house turned movie theater. Oh yeah, we also saw a movie there. I didn’t know anything about it before seeing it, but I really appreciated the writing of the film, especially the dialogue of the masked character, played by Huge Weaving (the Wachowski siblings must be raging fans of his).
The night before that I caught up with a collection of childhood friends that I went to elementary school with. We hadn’t seen eachother in a long time and it was great to see them again. After all this time they seem more to me like the people that they were when I knew them than I expected them to be, so everything was very comfortable and natural.
I’m listening to Boards of Canada now and about to pass out in Reston. I can look over the top of my laptop and out the window to see the serene lake illuminated by gas street lamps. Beautiful surroundings!
