who-we-are-in-RL whipped up a small site for The Book (and we snuck in and did “likes” on every page before she noticed)
and then the Final docs came back from Toronto so we got to read through the TheGreenInferno_ProductionNotes that who-we-are-in-RL worked on for that very bloody movie (we read the document with a Great Deal of trepidation – be careful if you’re squeamish, promise?)
so will you excuse us with a few pictures from the past – how long has it been – 24 hours – and only the Tiniest bit of commentary?
*lookstocamera* – we do seem to be reading a lot of books recently.
and getting a nice long look at the Pacific Ocean.
Mr. Gibson talks about his book here, if you’re curious. And we most definitely are.
this is the Casa Del Mar – we dropped in for brunch on Sunday and it was delicious.
can’t tell you where this is – but you’ll notice there’s another most lovely view of the Pacific Ocean…..
and this is a glorious spot which you can only get to if you’re willing to climb through a chain mail fence above the freeway (which, clearly, we Are – for the sake of Art, darlings).
and a beautifully (lemon!) scented rose which our friend Richard thinks is most probably a David Austin rose – perhaps Charles Darwin, he suggested?
and that’s that.
now we must sleep.
who-we-are-in-RL is Studying.
she’s reading all sorts of strange Texts.
like the Financial Times.
and a lot of Mr. Gibson.
who quotes many deeply curious Articles like this one written by Mr. V. Bush (no relation to the former presidents, apparently) in The Atlantic (a magazine, not the wide expanse of water when he was floating after a rescue from a large liner) in 1945 when he (V. Bush) “predicted” (we prefer to think “imagined in a glorious yet slightly troubling Vision of the Future”) the internet (he called it Memex which is sort of catchy when you say it out loud – try it – nice, right?) and hand-held computational devices that talked to a cloud (not a real one, a massive configuration of networked machines).
it sounds a little bit rude (or Cricket Terminology if you don’t quite catch what someone just said) but it’s actually a very clever speech that he gave.
and now she sits and Makes Sense of it All. or takes to the boudoir to call interview subjects (do you think they guess that we’re not at a desk? – that’s the beauty of the Princess Phone – it has no camera – and we know this because we took apart the last one to find out and couldn’t put it back together again).
of course with all this work (which is a Very good thing), we haven’t been to a (moving) Picture House or a Museum-with-Pictures for Ages.
the last one we saw was This:
and it was jolly exciting (but we have a Sneaking suspicious it was also Research – especially as there was no review forthcoming for our friend Arianna).
so while who-we-are-in-RL is Sequestered in the Study, we’ve started doing some light reading of our own in preparation for our business trip to South Africa
how’s Tuesday where you are in the world?
and have You managed to see any movies or great works of Art recently?
do. send. reviews and links.
we love to hear what’s going on out there.
