Here's a preview:
In other news, here are a couple of indie science fiction film recs:
* Lunopolis (2009)
Two documentary filmmakers accidentally uncover the greatest moon secret the world has never known and the powerful organization determined to keep it that way. A very clever premise, well realized!
* Zenith (2010)
More ambitious and less successful than Lunopolis, this is a retro-futuristic steampunk thriller about two men in two time periods whose search for the same grand conspiracy leads them to question their own humanity. It's not as sophisticated as I suspect its creators thought it was, but this is still very much worth a watch for its convincing take on a dystopian future.
Happy birthday to tuesday_darling, and happy early birthday to juliakarr, janellemadigan, mguibord, and gypsyjr. May you each enjoy a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come!
You darkness, that I come from,
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world,
for the fire makes
a circle of light for everyone,
and then no one outside learns of you.
But the darkness pulls in everything;
shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them!—
powers and people—
and it is possible a great energy
is moving near me.
I have faith in nights.
- Rainer Maria Rilke, "On Darkness"
