I just watched the pilot of the UK version of The Office. Being a huge fan of the US show, I'm not sure how I'll like this one.

You do know the UK one is the original and the US a port, right??

I've seen both but being a Brit I much prefer the subtelty of the original.
To me the US one is great for its own reasons, but I think a lot of British humour doesn't translate well over to the states because it's often poltical humour or very dry.

Yeah I know our version is a remake of sorts. I've seen a few of the episodes of series one and I like it so far, Ricky Gervais is pretty damn hilarious. That said I prefer the US version's fluid narrative and laugh out loud humor. I also have to struggle sometimes to understand their accents haha. British humor doesn't translate all that well in the US in most cases, but I do love Monty Python.

Some episodes of Psych from the most recent season.

Some boxing. Kind of boring. First round stoppages suck.

On Friday, I bought the first Death Note box set, so I've been watching that.  Anime is so expensive!
I like to glitch old VHS tapes and turn them into visuals for live music events. Check out what I'm working on - www.instagram.com/tylerisneat

Watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with subtitles on Saturday.  I'm terrible at following movies like this, but I absolutely loved the way they used computers.  Instead of making up fake programs, they just used actual Macs the whole time.  Hacking was the girl running a shell script that connected to the other computer with VNC.  Instead of "zoom! enhance!" it was "open with Photoshop, adjust contrast, and use the histogram tool to remove the brightest whites."

Watched Moon today, which felt like a great Twilight Zone episode.  Good stuff.
