Movies: Promo shots of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows Never heard of either the original or this remake up until now, but I do like Tim Burton's eye for colour and composition. Regarding the genre, a "gothic soap opera" sounds awesome, but maybe that's why I'm an anime fan -- that kind of genre is commonplace for us.

Science: Neutrinos Breaking Light Speed at CERN...? Either there has been a miscalculation (what most scientists are assuming) or we have to rethink the whole 'nothing moves faster than light' thing.
Space: @UARS_Reentry Will UARS fall out of orbit onto your head? Find out here! (I have a theory. With all the bad luck and natural disasters and extreme weather this country has been having, UARS will land on Fukushima Dai-ichi.)

Spam From Japan: Brazilian Day in Yoyogi Park, Harajuku
I decided to take a short-cut between some rice fields the other day. I'd done it twice before, when it was raining and enjoyed watching ducks splashing in the paddies either side of me on the narrow path. This time, I heard a rustling in the grass beside me. Since I had my umbrella, I brushed the top of the grass to see what would come out, thinking it would be a lizard. Out it came... longer and longer... It was a reddish snake with black banding, about 60cms long! I walked briskly away, getting mildly concerned (though, bizarrely, never panicked) that I couldn't see where my feet were going because the path had become overgrown over the summer. I just kept walking and made it to work safely.
So that's why none of the kids ever use that short cut.
It's a national holiday today (autumnal equinox), so I went to see Taxi Driver -- the TOHO 10am Classic -- and really enjoyed it. Despite having never seen it before, I thought I knew it pretty well, but it turns out that I didn't. Although never designed to have that effect, it made me want to visit New York again. It looks just like Tokyo, just dirtier. :)
Btw, the trailer for Genji Monogatari: Sennen no Nazo was incredibly pretty.
