I've been reading client stuff a lot lately. I do so love it when a client whose work you enjoy greatly surpasses their previous efforts.

I saw Wolverine the other night. My brother and I both loved it, and judging by the fact that the whole audience was there until the credits rolled, and about eighty percent stayed until the credits stopped, I don't think we were alone in that. It was to me, a great character study. It wasn't as action filled as some of the other comic to movie translations, but I think Hugh Jackman did a great job with all areas of the part. I've heard that some people thought it was bad, terrible or worse. I wonder what provoked this? It's the origin story of a man with blood on his hands who is a good guy because he's seen the dark side and knows what he wants. I think it was pretty faithful to the integrity of the character.

Anyone else see it yet?

Apropos of nothing:
Music added to the library tonight:
Vaughan Williams Complete Collection, George Phillipp Telemann's complete Tafelmusik, Living Colour's Vivid, Royce Da 5'9" The Album, Saves the Day  Stay What You Were & Through Being Cool, Bishop Lamont The Confessional, Peabo Bryson Missing You, Handel   Fire, Water, Slick Rick Behind Bars, Jay-Z American Gangster, Wyman Tisdale Rebound
The human mind is capable of doing amazing things. When you think of if, it's rather amazing we haven't made more technological advances. The first airplane was designed without the aid of computers, and the general principles of aerodynamics are not much changed since that time. Someone decided that the funny stuff growing in a petri dish might make a real good medicine, and it has. Both of these were the results of specialized thinking. General thinking though is what has lead to the far ranging works of Leonardo da Vinci and his contributions not just to art, but to engineering, mathematics, botany and more. Ben Franklin was another generalist contributing in social and physical sciences.

Sometimes i honestly feel as if a lot of the slush, and published stuff I've seen was written in this way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zc1Js9P3urw
I'm approaching the thirty-three percent mark of a good piece of fantasy I received.


In a word: AWE!
