Last time I tried to complain about missing functionality at Bloglines I got everything wrong. I acknoledged the fact, but my ego wanted a revenge. It wanted me to find something that is really missing so that I could write a proper post on the subject. After lots of thinking and playing around with other tools, I finally found a good issue to complain about – synchronization automation.
Here is what I mean.

For today I had a totally random choice of movie – no IMDB, no comments, no wishlist. I’ve got myself a DVD with “Black Moon Rising”

IMDB raintg: 5.1
My rating: 3.0 [rate 3.0]
I guess all my research paid off. I’ve got as much as I spent looking for it. Really slow and boring film with Tommy Lee Jones non-the-less. Not only the movie was slow and boring, but it was dated 1986. I bet it was slow and boring even by 1986 standards.
The costumes and the haircuts were bad. So were the fights. So was all the acting. And the special effects. But the worst ever was the soundtrack.
It was a pain to listen even for me – a guy who doesn’t pay any attention to background sound. During the whole film there were these noises produced by different instruments. They weren’t notes or music. They were noises. Random and painful. I thought that maybe the musicians didn’t know how to play music. But when it got to some romantic erotic scene, they all finally started to assemble something. I’ve heard music, even if bad one, but it was music. It continued for approximately 20 seconds and than… back to noises.
Skip this movie if you haven’t already. We’ve got enough newer crap.
My absolutely most favorite sound in the whole wide world is the sound of Maxim laughing (WAV, 60 KBytes, recorded with my mobile). Every time I hear this it feels like a Japanese cherry tree is blossoming inside me on a fast forward playback, like they show on Discovery channel.
Gladly, Maxim is laughing more and more with every day. Today both Olga and I were surprised to catch Maxim laughing while watching TV. There weren’t anything funny though – just a bunch of people and camera that was switching fast between them. I guess it reminded Maxim of a hide-and-seek game that we play with him.
I did a little photo session with Maxim as he was in the bath today. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any ways of controlling the setup of our bathroom yet, but I am working on it. In the mean time – both the light and space are very limited.
