I just realized it's nearly 1pm and I haven't blogged yet today. I was up unusually late last night, chatting with my friend Jim in Melbourne. He and I are both getting very excited for my trip there. As a result, I slept too late, and then went to meet a friend for brunch. And now here I am, well past noon, just getting started with the things I need to do.

I finally watched Casino Royale last night. Excellent, excellent film! Daniel Craig was awesome as the new Bond. In fact, I think I'm completely in lust with him. I enjoyed seeing the original story of 007 and the earlier Bond who was much more reckless and even a little out of control. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the film, and couldn't believe over two hours had passed by the time it was over. If you're one of the few people who haven't yet seen this film, I highly recommend it.

The song of the day is "What's On Your Mind? (Pure Energy)" by Information Society off their self-titled 1988 album. This is a catchy little dance song which is overwhelmed by synthesizers and sampling, but how can you not like a song that has sampled Mr. Spock from Star Trek? I was surprised to see they had so many albums out, because I only remember a couple of songs by them. I think they were more popular overseas. Also surprisingly, they have a new album coming out later this year.

I seriously was in lust too with Daniel Craig after I saw Casino Royale. I really, really liked him as Bond, and I've been going to Bond films since I was about 5 - the mid-60s.

I've never been a big fan of Bond, the character, or the Bond movies as a whole. But after reading so many positive reviews I decided to go see Casino Royale when it hit the theatres a few months back.

LOVED IT! Daniel Craig is just perfect for the role.

Sorry I wasn't able to come by and experience Daniel Craig in all his glory with you. Never seen a Bond movie, but would have watched it with you.

As for Information Society, I do have several of their CDs and was also surprised that they are still putting out music.

That run and jump sequence off the top was one of the best openings I've ever seen...
