Hats, romance and a weak ending: The Adjustment Bureau

The question of the power of free will and personal freedom vs. fate / prediction is the main topic of "The Adjustment bureau", a science fiction love thriller, new to the cinemas this week. To celebrate my last working week (another time), my dear yet-collegue Aurelie joined me to go watch it at "my" local cinema. Promised a lot by the trailer, we unfortunately were a bit disappointed by a movie which I could bet failed to come close to its litearal original by Phillip K. Dick.

Hedges, temples and azaleas: A Sunday walk in Chiswick park

Being not a fan of lonely boring sundays, I set out once again to get to know my new home a bit better yesterday. My target this time was Chiswick in the west of London, which has been described to me as a quite nice area with one of the rare parks which are more than a bit of green with a pair of trees. And as the weather was nice, the area seemed perfect to be around.

Japancore with Bells and Whistles - Brian Viglione, Elyas Khan, and Sxip Shirey at The Underworld, Camden

Thanks to my lovely sister I got the pleasure to see an exceptional concert at Camden yesterday. As I'm not so good in writing about music (and still drunk from the aftershow-party), I'll rely on pictures and short comments.
