Rochester Travellogue, Day 5: House of Flying Crysknives

Rochester, NY
A Semi-Tronkie Travellogue - Day 5 of 6

Deuteronomy 34:1-4
1 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the LORD showed him the whole land-from Gilead to Dan,
2 all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the western sea,
3 the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar.
4 Then the LORD said to him, "This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, 'I will give it to your descendants.' I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it."

I snapped the following before I was asked to cease und desist by a store manager:

20:00 - 22:00: Saw House of Flying Daggers (aka Shi Mian Mai Fu, or Ambushed from Ten Directions - and Trasked with Bamboo Spears). This movie was on VCD (it has not opened theatrically in the USA yet). It's the 2005 Chinese entry for a foreign language Oscar. Certainly, it's pretty as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, as beautifully choreographed yet vapid of dialogue and deeper message as Hero reputedly is. I have only seen this and CTHD, and I liked the plot of CTHD better, though this one was very thought-provoking. When you get around to seeing it, take note of the ending. I told my family that it resembles nothing so much as Othello and Romeo and Juliet without the uplifting bits at the end. Constable Leo's fate is, as I see it, the real dagger that he cannot pull out.

22:00 - 00:15: more LJ; send and activate GMail invites for family

01:00 - 03:45: NaNoWriMo - Archniniei totems; skirmishes on Mt. Kolunos
