The Fountain

still from the movie

I watched The Fountain earlier tonight. I liked it. At least I think I did. It was all very zen and confusing. Well, I’m not alone, most of the posts on the IMDb forum are questions on the plot.

Spanning over one thousand years, and three parallel stories, The Fountain is a story of love, death, spirituality, and the fragility of our existence in this world.

And the critics are divided between brilliant and pretentious. Think I’ll watch it again soon.

Music

JVC UX-G45

My stereo died a while ago. Well not entirely, but it no longer wanted to play CDs beyond the first two minutes. Also, the volume button turned into some sort of Russian roulette, picking a random level on every change. So after long consideration and reading an enormous amount of reviews online, I settled on the JVC UX-G45, which arrived today. Now I only need to hook it up to 6 speakers and the PC. 🙂
