A Cultured Week
This past week I have been dipping into a variety of cultural experiences that I have found quite rewarding. The week started with playing Twister. Later I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, which I found to be rather boring until I learned a little secret. If you watch the movie in VLC you can watch it a 2x speed (double time) and except for the few moments of dialog (which I slowed down to 1.25x or 1.5x depending on who was talking) it was quite understandable and in fact enjoyable. Then, in honor of the schools masquerade ball, I listened to the Phantom of the Opera. I found that listening to it was much more enjoyable than watching the movie. I still not sure if AJ finds my random singing outburst to be funny or annoying (except when I lip sync into a 'microphone' which always makes him laugh).
