Oh my, I haven’t posted here for over two weeks! I have been busy updating JapaneseBallPlayers.com, (that is, when I am not shoveling) and am finally happy with how it is working now. I did a major backend upgrade and most everything is database-driven. Pretty cool. I am just learning so much about php/mysql stuff.
Test driving drupal and liking it, so far. I’ve installed it on Boston Japanese Red Sox fan club website. Taking a little time tring to figure out how the “theme” works. I want to create a theme for Boston Japanese Linux/Unix Users Group‘s website (bjlug.org) and move it to a Drupal-based site, so that everyone can edit the contents. BJLUG is having its (late-)New Year Dim Sum meeting this Saturday if anyone is interested. Come one, came all!
Recently-Watched-Movies List (with one line review): Eternal Sunshaine of Spotless Mind (Awesome! Loved it. I didn’t like Adaptation but it was more like John Malkovich), Saddest Music in the World (Strange, interesting, screenwriter is Japanese, Kazuo Ishiguro, really wanted to like it much more but was missing something… style is so original though), Enter The Dragon (I forgot why Bruce Lee is so friggin’ kick a**. I think he is THE coolest Asian American. Jacky Chen is in it as an extra too. He is the one who grabs Lee’s sister and get punched in the face…), Hero (was OK, needed bit more beefy story. Great fight scenes.), City Of God (Pretty good, sort of went on for a long time. Interesting story that is based on a true story.) Happiness (Not happy at all but very interesting) Around the world in 90 days (Actually it has pretty good traditional style fight scene by Jacky Chen in it, was not bad), Garden State (Liked it, good) Before Sunrise (pretty good), Harold and Maude (Wacky, interesting), The Pianist (Great) Napoleon Dynamite (Geez! Awesome! What’d you think!), The Blind Swordman: Zatoichi (You know, I actually really liked it. Yes it had the Motal-Combat-like-computer-animated-Blood, and “Stomp” at the end, but so what, it was refreshing in the very traditional samurai Chan-bara movie . I need to own kimono like Asano‘s… There aren’t enough men wearing kimono in this world.), De-Lovely (Great movie, I love music of Cole Porter anyway. Time when he lived are the best era… people dressed really nice back then.) The Fog of War (Holy cow. It was shockingly great)
Did I forget any? BTW, did I mention I miss baseball?? (The Title of blog is a song of lyrics from my band, like ten years ago, called Shu, written by Matt Sakakini)
