Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

rsd

So finally I had time to take a look at RSD, and it's a nice, clean design as far as I can tell. Daniel did a great job with this. It will certainly come in handy for the XML-RPC Weblog Post feature in spaces.

winter!

The 22nd, here it is! Past the shortest day of the year now... was going to see Lord of The Rings Pt. 2 yesterday but then realized I didn't have the schedule... and didn't really want to go. It was raining quite a lot.

In any case, I want to see it but for completeness more than anything else. Although I haven't read LOTR in about 3-4 years now, before that I read the the Trilogy many, many times (more than 10) along with a few readings of The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lost Tales series, The books of the 'History of Middle Earth' series (edited after Tolkien's death by his son Christopher), the Atlas of Middle Earth (no... not by JRRT)... even role-played "in middle earth" for a few years, and yes, I can still write my name in ancient Elvish... so the movies don't really provide anything new. For example, I had already "seen" the Balrog many, many times before last year's movie. That's a good point about it though: it matches what you expect if you know the story and you have internalized it, not a small feat for such a complex work of literature. So I'll probably go one of these days to see the Two Towers, maybe even tomorrow, and spend a good couple of hours with those fictional friends from the past.
