A Very Primer Halloween
I decided to be one of the guys from the movie Primer this year. That other guy, I met that night and he was wearing what could almost pass for a Primer outfit, only he had a blonde, Dutch-style wig, so I asked him to take it off and claim to be the other guy from Primer for the purpose of the photo.
Here's a still from the movie, for comparison:
Before you go thinking that it's a lazy outfit because it's just a shirt and tie, I got my haircut specifically to look like the guy, bringing in a photo to show the lady that cut it. And I also have an earpiece.
Haven't seen Primer? Neither has anyone else, it turns out.

That's actually a fine haircut on you.
Primer is definitely a cult film but word of mouth on the geek scene is positive. All my co-workers are talking about it, although half of them are just complaining about how the tech in the film is so fake. Hell, for $7,000 I figure they can go make their own version if they don't like how the computer screens look.

I saw "Primer". With you. Remember? And I bet you took at least one other person to see it at another time. I recently saw an ad in Variety for a new Japanese time-travel film, but now I can't remember what it's called.

Primer was very... confusing. It may have just been that I was really tired or something, but I just lost track somewhere around when the third guy killed the fourth guy and the second guy decided to take up artistic re-enactment, and the sixth guy was like, a copy of a copy and just kept doing this great slapstick routine.
And is the weird japanese movie 2046? I was pretty much ready to see it and then I read the summary "He thought he wrote about the future but it was really the past", and decided that maybe it was a DVD-watch after all.
