Utena: Children of the Revolution

For your regular dose of mindfuck...

The guy who served me at the supermarket today really needed to pay more attention to the part of his training where they explain how to stack bags. WHY YOU PUT CANS OF THINGS ON TOP OF MY SQUISHABLE VEGETABLES?


Anyhoo, Mum was down in Melbourne last night for a (late) birthday dinner with The Sister and I, plus getting to see us prior to her grand round-the-world jaunt which is due to begin... later this upcoming week, I believe. We had Nepalese food for dinner, which was a bit different, and then went to Brunetti's for coffee and cake. Ah, the wonders of Lygon Street.

And then today I... didn't do a lot. Watched the first two episodes of Mawaru Penguindrum which was certainly something - well, a certain about of mindfuck is expected, it is by the guy who directed Utena. Hence why I am watching I suppose.

Otherwise, I am yet to see Harry Potter and so will have to live vicariously through everyone else's reviews - though I will be going to see it with notalwaysweak and others on Tuesday. I'll just have to hold out until then, I suppose.

Though there is some entertaining Potter stuff floating around online. Such as these lulzy macro-y things, or these rather awesome posters.
