It's been a while

It's been a while since I've posted.
Been posting mostly on facebook.
I'll try to post once in a while on books and anime that i've been getting into.

Ristorante Paradiso

It's been a while.
Just finished watching this.
Great, short anime.
An unexpected gem of a find.

Best New Anime This Year -- Cross Game

I watched this anime just on a whim. To be honest, I didn't really give a lot of attention to this anime with its old-style art. A lot more anime looked more interesting, like Shangri-la and Valkyria Chronicles. However, after episode 1, I was hooked.
I laughed, I cried. I can't recommend this anime enough to everyone, even those who don't like baseball.

Wolverine Movie; Summer Movies to Watch

It's been a while. April to May is generally a very busy time for me at work, so please excuse my absence.
Anyways, I finally got to watch a movie after a couple of months. I can't even remember the last movie I watched.
My wife and I watched the Wolverine movie last Sunday.
Overall, the movie was OK to good. A lot of plot holes and inconsistencies, but it was good to watch. In fact, the P200/head I spent on watching the movie was cheaper than the P600/head people paid to watch the Pacquiao fight earlier in the day. (I mean, two rounds, seriously? It was like P300/round).
There are a lot of good (I hope) movies coming out in the next couple of months.
Here are some of them:
Star Trek
Angels and Demons
Terminator Salvation
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra

I hope atleast some of them would be good.

What I'm Playing Right Now -- Lux Pain

Actually, this is more a visual novel than an actual game. That being said, the game is just ok.
What I don't like about this game is that they don't teach you how to play it. I had to play it via trial and error.
Still, it's a good enough game to while away the time. I'm not sure of the ending yet as I'm probably just halfway through.

Funeral for My Ipaq 1930 2001-2009

I got the iPaq 2001. It held up pretty well. It's not actually dead yet, but it's already dying. The battery doesn't last over a day with full use and now the charger just broke. So I'm just waiting for it to give up the ghost. I tried contacting the local HP service, but the replacement parts were way too expensive -- almost like buying a brand-new one.
My problem is that nobody sells cheap stand-alone PDAs anymore. Sure, HP has the iPaq 112, but I can't find it locally. What to do, oh, what to do...
