Ramblings II

  • Got a text message from my cousin Adam at around 7pm PT on Wednesday that said “Are you in time travel heaven right now?” He was referring to the season premiere of LOST, but forgot that I was 3 hours behind and thus hadn’t watched it yet.  Note to self: Ignore text messages after 6pm on Wednesdays.  (And yes, I was in time travel heaven.)
  • Are The Beatles referencing James Brown with the “When I hold you in my arms” spoken bit at the end of “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” from the White Album?  And did I really just notice this yesterday?

“I Feel Good” — James Brown, 1966

When I hold you in my arms
I know that I can’t do no wrong
and when I hold you in my arms
My love can’t do me no harm

“Happiness Is A Warm Gun” — The Beatles, 1968

When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on your trigger
I know nobody can do me no harm

  • Really enjoyed Timecrimes (aka Los Cronocrímenes), the Spanish language time travel movie.  Well constructed and a lot of fun.  I was inspired enough to try my hand at some artwork on the table of the restaurant we ate at afterwards.  (I’m no José Roberto, but I think this is pretty decent all things considered.)  I may write a more detailed review once the DVD comes out and I watch it again.  In the meantime, Ebert’s review is amusing without giving too much away.
