Pan's Labryinth, UR, Lone Wolf

Pan's Labryinth was spectacular. It's a movie that is surrounded by many coincidences and synchronicities that would bore anyone but me. I must say that it does go over the top more than once. This is not a movie for kids, but it could have been. Amazing to watch regardless. It's the movie that Guillermo Del Toro has been waiting to pour his heart into. (official site)

Techno fans! Emusic has a bunch of Underground Resistance and Submerge Records music all of a sudden. High quality mp3's of classic Detroit techno. Don't sleep. (UR on Emusic) (Submerge on Emusic)

Ran for nearly an hour on a snowy trail to The Police. At one point I turned a corner to see a dog up the trail facing me. Or is that a wolf? It looked like it. We both seemed to notice each other at the same time. It was off any leash and no one else was in sight. I downshifted from jog to walk immediately and looked aside when I realized I was staring this dog (wolf?) right in the eye. It was a moment later when I saw the owner, a young woman, walking her husky sans leash. The dog began to run toward me. I was relaxed, mostly, and tried to hide any fear. I put my hands out as you're supposed to, and the dog sniffed for an instant and walked around me, unwilling to stay too close. I kept walking until I had passed the woman who was talking on the phone (and I listening to The Police) and then began to jog again, with one last look over my shoulder.

You don't like my taste in movies? No on Babel. Maybe soon. I got a feeling I might not like it. I'm more interested in seeing Blood Diamond instead. Funny story about seeing Pan's. Hours before the decision was made to see it, N. and I were behind a car with a bull sticker on the back. As in the national symbol of Spain, not the basketball team. I pointed it out, and we discussed for a few moments. Later we were coicidentally at a movie directed by a guy named Del Toro. (cue spooky music)
