Jiggity jig. Sackville is very pretty in August, albeit a tad muggy. I discovered a random roll of film from last summer on one of my developing sprees this year, so I’ve included a few photos in this post to reaffirm (to myself, more than anyone else) that the place to which I have returned […]Read more "Home Again, Home Again…"
A couple of weeks ago, Mink and I decided to make a somewhat spontaneous trip to Prague. I’d wanted to go there since my sister had told me about how awesome it is, and we don’t have much time left to travel in Europe before going back to Canada.

Tomorrow Mink and I fly to Belgrade, […]Read more "In the Past Two Weeks We’ve Been to…"

The Burg Kino still plays it multiple times a week. This trailer pretty much sums up the plot: The movie itself […]Read more "For Cinephiles: The Third Man"
Happy July, everyone! Mink and I are now happily unemployed for the next month and a half or so, and we’re going to enjoy Vienna/our friends visiting/the other places we go to as much as possible before leaving (altogether too soon) at the beginning of August. Schade! It’s been a busy weekend! Bryno arrived from […]Read more "(F)unemployment!"
