empty after all souls day

rain and rain and rain some more. which is what california so desperately needs so i say let it come down, hard. but when we drove in the pour yesterday as it was going thick we drove past 2 car wrecks within the space of 20 minutes. the 2nd wreck was the worst as it was sitting on its side. couldn't see the driver but there already was an ambulance and a fire engine beside the vehicle.

it is dry as i type but more of the wet stuff is expected by tomorrow. but so okay, took nicholas to see the pixar film wall-e today at the sunrise cinema. located in a shopping mall the theater is the last of its kind playing 2nd run features for a cut-rate admission. the theater is popular with families with young children. crying, laughing, running and talking are all expected and a perfect place to take a 3 yr old. the movie is rather sweet with some spectacular animation. pixar studios, headquarters located in the east-bay town emeryville, makes some damn fine product. i've become a fan of their work, even when stories are slight, such as the movie cars, they are still a wonder to watch with good editing, solid direction and out-of-the-world computer animation.

and and and then, it is the day after the day after halloween after all so after the film and after me trying to do a bit of bookshopping at a barnes and noble which was damn near impossible because nicholas was running up and down the aisles like a monkey slipped of its medication, we find a halloween superstore still open. i had to go in and the staff were in the midst of stripping down the displays and everything is half-off anyway. a few nick-nacks, such as a rubber frog and black widow spider for nicholas, and for me 2 cds by midnight syndicate, a duo specializing in horror music and soundscapes.

well, that was a day indeed. we have faith in the poison, we know how to give of ourselves everyday. or something along those lines. and speaking of rimbaud i have been wondering what absinthe tastes like. i understand it is now legal in the u.s. and there are coteries of connoisseurs here and there. but hell even if i was offered a quaff or 2 i'd probably decline since my experimenting days are long over.

a new obsession, the internet radio cult radio a-go-go. listening to it right now as i type.

I made an argument in my comp class for a comparative essay on Wall-E and Idiocracy. I have a strong case.
