fringe moon house [Feb. 9th, 2010|11:21 pm]
We finished S1 of Fringe this evening. The final imagery was really quite audacious. Well-done, Abrams & co!

And then we watched Moon, and I think it deserves all the praise it's gotten. I really liked what they did with GERTY, especially highlighted against the portrayal of AI in other classic SF movies.

I signed a bunch of paperwork and am paying to have a house inspected on Thursday. I believe I am now "under contract". I think.

So, assuming all goes well, I guess we're buying a house. Well, townhouse/condo. Dwelling-place. Thing. Trying to neither freak out nor get excited about it until the situation is more certain. But yeah.

(Definitely not ready to think about the whole "moving" part yet.)

I was crying by the end of Moon. So too, I think, was my BF.

Moon is out on DVD!?! I'd been waiting, but almost forgot about it.

Now, do I send Watchmen back unwatched (!) so I can get it as soon as humanly possible??

Jeez, I didn't even read the whole post after the Moon part. Congrats on the house! Wanna tell us where it's at?

Oddly, Moon was one of the few movies I saw in the theatre last year. (?) I'm a huge Sam Rockwell fan. I thought it was a very nicely constructed film and fairly good s/f with only a few fallacies (like how expensive the replacements would be... that one took a pretty huge leap of faith). But, yes, oddly redemptive of AI (these are the benevolent robots YOU want running our world. I doubt such a thing could exist.)

I do adore space angst every now and then, and this was exactly my cup of tea.

Did I mention Sam Rockwell rocks?

Yes, you're under contract. BUT you can break that contract if the inspection turns up nasty stuff, like a roof that needs replacement or bad plumbing. Yes, it's freaky. But quality-of-life issues are important, and I think with you guys apartments just aren't going to cut it any longer. (I mean, for us the fact that we got Gareth sleeping through the night with his own room was HUGE.)

I desperately need to see Moon.

If only you knew some burly guys who could help lift stuff!

Your post title made me think of Annie Lennox. ("Fingernail Moon" is a song on her 2007 album.)

Yay, Moon!

Yay, house!

Really, you're liking Fringe? The terrible science on it bugs me a lot, but I would have assumed it would put Dr. T into seizures. Maybe it just gets worse as it goes along. Did you see the one with the magnets and birds yet? (Yeah, but I keep watching. Olivia kicks ass and I enjoy Walter, anyway.)
