Tenzin evidently couldn’t deal with it.
Growing up the humor of Robin Williams was one of the very first I connected with. When it first came out Mrs. Doubtfire instantly became my favorite comedy and remains so to this day. Now that he’s gone I feel like a piece of my childhood has gone along with him. I’m thankful I still have those memories of rolling around on the living room rug in side-splitting laughter because of him.
Rest in peace, Captain
Jumanji sparked my imagination, Good Will Hunting inspired my interest in maths, and Dead Poets Society taught me to love life and enjoy school.
Thank you, O Captain.
I’ve been incredibly fortunate so far this summer with memorable holiday after holiday. Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for Kolkata in what will be the final trip before returning for the oh-so-wonderful results day that will inevitably decide the next 4 years of my life. How fun.
In other news, Book 3 of Korra is great and far better than Book 2 was in terms of character development and story progression. Hopefully it continues that way. Anyone with any interest in anime should be watching Aldnoah.Zero, Zankyou no Terror and Barakamon this summer. I’ve already talked about Barakamon, and the other two are by two incredibly famous directors (Watanabe and Urobuchi) and definitely worth watching. I’ve also got a lot of photography from my recent adventures to share, so there’s that to look forward to as well.
Once I return I plan to get back into the groove of blogging about science and maths (oh yeah, that’s what this blog’s meant to be about!). My ‘grand plan’ (aside from world domination) is to blog about my maths course as I go through the next four years. It’ll be a fairly ambitious venture and I have no doubt that I’ll hit both metaphorical and literal bumps along the way. Nevertheless, I’m excited to give it a go!
Q:Your new haircut looks terrible.
Anon (who is this by the way?) please don’t play with my feelings ;_;
It’s been ages since I last had a haircut. I feel like I’m staring at a stranger right now when I look into a mirror, but it’s going to be a fun couple of days.
alt-J - Hunger Of The Pine
There is a moment about a minute and a half into alt-J’s lush and intricate new single, when the Miley Cyrus sample plays for the first time, and you can’t help but step back and appreciate the absurdity of it. It shouldn’t work, but of course it does, adding yet another layer to this strange bird of a song. Orchestral, eclectic, tense, and soft, ‘Hunger Of The Pine’ doesn’t come in like a wrecking ball, so much as a breath of fresh air.
That Miley sample is really something else. So unexpected, but it works.
