Revenge of the Sith

11:21 pm PHT

Watched it yesterday. Agree that it was the best of the first three episodes. Agree with Kottke that you’d wish things would have turned out differently despite knowing what happens. Agree that the slaughtering of the Jedi was kinda sad. Agree that the movie spent too much time tying the knots to Episode IV. Agree that the movie is more engrossing than expected.

For once I am not tripping on a Paul van Dyk song, although I still have a crush on that last one. The song that I can’t get out of my head right now is Solu Music’s “Fade” featuring KimBlee on vocals. Like many dance/electronica songs I like, I encountered this song from diverse places before I finally learn enough about it for it to actually become a favorite.

Last Friday, my company trooped to Clark in Pampanga to hold the main event of our annual sportsfest. Six teams have competed in various events like basketball, volleyball, and badminton months before, so the only remaining event was the parlor games.
