Back in New York again. Stupidly long flight (8.5 hours) due to head winds. Managed to get one of the few empty seats next to me through a bit of effort convincing the large hassidic lad next to me to swap with his much smaller mate, only then to find that his screen didn’t work. Nice one. I suspect all Atlantic flights are going to be pretty rammed from now on, with the decreased volume of flights. It’s nice to be back though.
Started watching Armageddon Now: Redux last night. Excellent stuff. It’s been a long time since I last watched Armageddon Now so I can’t really recognise the new bits. Great sound.. Bugger all special features though – it’s all movie. Speaking of extra features, the people in the apartment opposite mine have moved out so I got to wander in there last night while Adelpho was cleaning it out. It’s huge! They have a small photo studio and lots of old photo equipment they’ve ‘abandoned’ – well, Adelpho was throwing it out anyway. I grabbed a tripod thing in classic hoarder stylee. The apartment’s about 30-40% bigger than mine but only $300 per month more! Suspect my landlord might find it hard to argue with me for a rent increase. Although that’s pretty much a moot point at the moment as I make me decisions whether to stay in New York or head elsewhere. Global travel is sounding increasingly interesting after chatting to lots of people in the UK. Watch this space!
