Everything that has a beginning has an end.

Unlike previous Epic Movie Releases, when I planned well in advance to make sure to drag a sufficiently large number of people to the theater, something was different this time; for whatever reason, I didn't. Gem's youth services class, getting out at 1915, was a complicating factor. When it finished this evening, I contemplated my options and decided to head to the 2000 showing at the nearby Colony Square 12. I informed Bitscape of my decision and he decided it'd be amusing to see the movie twice in one day. (Unemployment does have some benefits.) When Gem and I reached the theater, I learned that the 2000 showing was sold out, but the 1930 showing (starting in negative ninety seconds) still had tickets. I spent a few seconds contemplating my options and decided to go for it. I acquired tickets, voicemailed Bitscape, and headed into the theater. We ended up with crink-in-neck seats on the last row of non-stadium seating, which wasn't actually quite as bad as I thought it might be.

The movie was ... I'm not sure what I thought of it yet. I'll have to get back to you on that.

In unrelated news, I decided to do my part to boost fourth quarter consumer spending; I acquired an iPod. Now that I was able to reboot Ziyal to a new kernel, I was able to get gtkpod working without too much trouble, and right now I'm listing to Eve6 on my sexy new toy. Now I have to convert all of my oggs back into mp3s so I can listen to them on my mobile device.

(I'm impressed -- even the *packaging* is sexy. It's Apple, though -- I shouldn't have expected anything else.)

Bitscape, age 26, is a highly sought white hat hacker and an agent of
social subversion. An avid fan of salsa, developer-centric web design,
and cheesy pop music, Bitscape co-creates a world of love and
acceptance by sharing his vision. He enjoys helping low-tech firms
define their offline strategy, and he's advised many anonymous
unknowns, including the homeless on Pearl Street, escaped mental
patients, and hookers on East Colfax. As an aspiring web bum, he
applies his knowledge to a community venture, the Content Collective.
Bitscape resides in Westminster, Colorado, but may soon be moving into
a van down by the river. For speaking arrangements, don't bother
calling. Your bits will be lost in the noise.
