I saw Spotlight last night, and it was so incredibly good. It does a really good job walking through how supportive the Catholic church was, even at the highest levels, of childhood sexual abuse. Definitely worth watching and expect to see a lot of Oscar nominations

Some other movies out now that I would also highly recommend:
  • Brooklyn - Great date night movie
  • Room - Probably the best movie of the year, but very very weighty subject matter so not for everyone.
  • The Martian - The book is also fantastic for hard sci-fi

I also brought along my DSLR and played tourist yesterday, taking some photos along the hike and bike trail and a temporary art installation along Waller Creek. And I finally got around to trying out those famous Casino el Camino burgers, and yeah, they're huge and tasty. Would recommend.

Also 3am false fire alarms suck. But they are better than 3am real fire alarms. Reminds me of a saying I read a long long time ago where the only thing worse than a wrong number at 3 in the morning is a right one.

Had 6 fire trucks come though, so at least we know it works, and it was ridiculously loud so I know it'll definitely wake me up. I've had a healthy respect for getting out of the building ASAP after spending a late night once going over Wikipedia entries on fire disasters after the Kiss Nightclub fire.

On a much happier note I had my divorce celebration party on Friday. Went to the The Highball and sang karaoke. Good times!
