Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

Did I leave the tap running or is the apartment getting more tearful?
I always thought it would cope okay.
Didn't expect it to cry so much.
When people cry they can dry their eyes with tissues.
But when an apartment cries, it takes a lot to mop it up.

-Wong Kar-Wai Chung King Express

Today I watched something I should have seen years ago: Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. This film is a fucking masterpiece and don't let anyone tell you different. I was put off by the three-hour-twenty-minute running time but I shouldn't have been. It is nothing short of genius.
