The best for next year.
By the way, it looks like a christmas postcard from Lost Island.

We are in "lost island"! Santa has to wear bermudas or risk dehydration! And the only snow around are movenpick's ice cream cones! He, he... I'll post later some pictures of the beach rave I told you... it was supposed to be a christmas party.

Thanks man!

Yes, we do have some spare time... we've been watching a lot of anime movies lately (perfect blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Porco Rosso, Laputa, Nausicaa, etc) Most TV shows are also on holidays, so there's nothing, and I mean Nothing on TV. Any suggestions?

Mmm... try Battlestar Galactica
the new TV series is surprisingly good (but sadly no funky 80's hairdos G_G), you only have to bear the first season shaky on-hand camera, they get rid of it latter thank God.

Tonite I'll indulge myself with Borat, I'll post you something on it latter

I didn't like the new battlestar galactica. We enjoyed recognizing the places in Vancouver and I enjoyed to see Nicki Clyne Does she reminds you of someone? I know you like the japanese girl from the Mickey Mouse club... Was she on the same generation as Spears and Aguilera?

Anyway, I didn't like all the pro-american propaganda... like having a spaceship called airforce one... etc. the fact that they don't use "sentones" to measure time anymore, instead they now use imperial system, not even ISO!!! etc, etc. It's like the writers of this series were fired from the family guy... it's just incoherent in terms of Science Fiction philosophy. I cannot imagine an advanced civilization stuck in a "republican party idea of an ideal america for all people in this universe".

Somehow I'm glad that we don't have it anymore on TV. (just the first season).

Here the e-card I've got from Autodesk... you see, the sand snowman makes sense in this side of the globe.

And some cookie promo from Solidworks here.

Guess those are the only cards we're getting this year.

According to Bush, you are just jaleous G_G

I was one of the haters of the first season, (I still hate it)

But in the latter seasons the story gets over the self-glorifications and I have to say it gets good, not very original of course, but it's religious and moral overtones take from Asimov's steel and silicon robots and jump into XXI century's DNA engineering and neural mapping.

What happens when a copy of a human is so good it's indistiguable from the original, it's a clone?, a copy? or simply another human?

Anyway, the first season it's just an intro to the main story.

Sorry for the double post
The korean chick (not japanese) is Grace Park... and yes I'm partial to her ^_^

The girl Nicki Clyne is nice looking too, in a demure kind of way, she even have a huge pair of cheeks you'd may love to pinch (on her face! pervert G_G)

BTW, who is she supposed to remind me of?

What can I say... listen to the "serenachtung" CD.

About clones, and almost human beings... I found quite interesting the discussions (or monologues) on "ghost in a shell". The movie not so good tho.
