“Evangelion Screening” Austin, 2023

This evening I went to see Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time with my friend. I have never seen any of the Evangelion movies or anime, so I had no idea what was going on. But I did hear from friends that no one actually knows what’s going on in Evangelion. 😂

The movie was pretty amazing, nonetheless. I do admit to falling asleep a few times (I only got 30 minutes of sleep last night), but luckily the movies are all available on Amazon Prime so I can rewatch the bits I missed (and also catch up on the previous movies).

A Favorite Watch

“Seiko 5” Cedar Park, 2023

I wore my Seiko 5 watch today for the first time in a long time. I still love this small automatic watch, even if it is a little fast (adding about 30 seconds a day). The design is simple and classic, and it doesn’t weigh much so I hardly feel it. I’ll probably keep this and my Seiko 007 forever. BIFL!

Mid-Life Indy

“Mid-Life Indy” Cedar Park, 2023

Today I re-watched “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” since I hadn’t seen it since it came out in theaters way back in 2008. I enjoyed it then, and was curious if I would still feel the same way. And yes, I think it’s a fun movie! I was surprised that I found Mutt Williams kind of an interesting character and Shia Labeouf did a pretty good job playing him.

What was kind of neat is that after seeing Harrison Ford in Dial of Destiny, he looked so young in Crystal Skull! I need to re-watch Temple of Doom now, and then I will be able to rate the Indy films from best to worst (for my own curiosity).
