It's Friday and I have nothing bookish to write about.  Well, not entirely true - I'm currently reading Jane Eyre, but I'm not sure when you last looked at your copy (surely we all have a copy, right?), but that book is loooong.  Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying it quite a lot, but I don't think I'll be finishing it any time soon, especially as things are ramping up work-wise.  As the book is naturally divided into 3 parts, I might try something new and post my mid-read impressions on the conclusion of each part, but we'll see how it goes.  Tony believes he will finish Yukio Mishima's The Temple of the Golden Pavilion this weekend, and if that indeed winds up being the case, then we should have a joint review of that in the near future. But as I have none of the groundbreaking insights into literature for which I know you all come here (*eyeroll*), I thought I'd placate you with something a little bit different... Something in the form of a music video.  One written, directed, and produced by my good friend Simona and her boyfriend, Spencer. (After all, if you can't use your blog to shamelessly promote cool stuff your friends are doing, why have a blog? 😉 ).  They came up with the concept for this video for the Canadian alt-rock (is alt-rock still a genre?) band Grace Over Diamonds and shot it a few months back, but the video has only recently gone live.  Irrespective of the fact that producing music videos is not what either Simona or Spence do to make a living, I think this one is pretty darn good.  Take a look and see for yourself! Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

    I read The Temple of the Golden Pavilion over a year ago but it didn’t stay with me very much. The pace of the book is a bit too slow although the writing is beautiful and contemplative. A morbidly distorted mentality takes hold of the character and foreshadows a deadly vision that would crush all human beings and all objects irrespective of their ugliness and beauty. I would like to read The Confession of a Mask.
