Still at the beach. It is very hot and humid. Continuing to read William Gibson's latest - Pattern Recognition. So far, I'm enjoying it. It's starting to remind me of the Wim Wender's film Until the End of the World. The globetrotting and video footage in the novel have a Wenderian feel. I sure wish that somehow the full 5 hour version of Until the End of the World would get released on DVD. There have been rumours but so far no concrete results.
