I've been really sick for the past week. Blogging helps, sometimes.2.
I was watching this Chris Ware
video from This American Life

Hell, what do I know
. It's David vs. David
, after all. Ehehehe.
Vote for Cook! Gaspy has to go. Seriously.4.
What is with Austria? My fantasies of it have always consisted of Mozart, Strauss, grand palaces, and The Sound of Music
. But now, it's all Arthur Schnitzler
(author of the novella Traumnovelle
, the basis for Eyes Wide Shut
), Elfriede Jelinek
(Nobel Prize winner for such harrowing work as The Piano Teacher
), Michael Haneke
, underground captivity
, and incest and more underground captivity
. And now this
. There seems to be an Austrian race to debase humanity in print, in film, and in real life. What's up with that?
What's strange: I'm actually planning to be
in Austria to work and maybe study within the next eight years.5.Charles Tan
