I am. I’m just trying to improve my academic standing. Pardon me for the writing drought, I’ll be back soon!



Excited for the upcoming 2014 Golden Globes this Sunday, Jan. 12 at 5PM (L.A. time). Haven’t seen most of the nominated films yet (Gravity is one exception), but I will definitely catch either Her or Twelve Years a Slave today. Good luck to all the nominees!

2013 In Review by WordPress

Just something to ponder on. Indeed, my favorite day was when a famous director tweeted a link to my blog. Good times, good times..

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,300 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
