Just finished watching the first half of Seven Samurai. It was a little past 3AM when we stopped.

It's a very long film and is the most deserving film of an intermission. Actually we are watching the film in part owing to a recommendation by my statistics professor and I've been pushing us all to watch the film for a week now.

I love my users, I really do! Someday we'll grow so big and I'll smile and scold myself for being so committed to something so other-worldly and breathless as a community on the internet.

Has my ripe youth-fruit been tasted?

It is bitter, sleepless.

If it were a sound, it would be hollow,

sounding and then quickly choked, distracted,

to a head all at once. Reverberating strongly against

hard walls and escaping outside into the golden sun, my


What's caused it?

Who cares: Here it is!
