Meeting done, home, finally watched AVATAR all the way through and it’s sort of like someone nailed two Westerns to the centre of Tsui Hark’s brain after it’d been sprayed with paraquat which means it’s very beautiful and reinvents some things central to fantastika cinema that people have largely forgotten to do but uncomfortably illustrates how very carefully dumb something has to become to be the most successful film in the world, and now I’m writing a foreword for a collection of Antony Johnston & Christopher Mitten’s WASTELAND, and, hey, if you’re running Audioboo? I shouldn’t have to attempt the upload through an iPhone app four times before it takes, okay?
Sometimes I think about buying a Mac laptop, on the basis that it would be such a counterintuitive alien piece of Fischer Price fuckware that I would only be able to write manuscripts on it and would be damned lucky to get on to the internet at all (I don’t think I even have Mac software for my cranky router). I’m sure I would be very productive.
