I got new lenses fitted into my glasses yesterday, and whilst I was in the opticians I spotted the most gorgeous pair of sunglasses I have ever seen. I mean, they are just fantastic – all black and broody and with a slight air of Matrixness about them. And jeeze, I look damn fine in them. Only trouble is, they’re Dolce & Gabbana, and they cost more than my prescription lenses did. And I have no money.

I am coveting those sunnies so bad, you would not believe it. More than I covet the new Mac Powerbook.


So, I looked them up on the internet to see if I could find them cheaper anywhere else. I can’t. But I did discover that you can buy actual official Matrix sunglasses, and I’m not sure how I feel about this. I mean, on the one hand, yes, the sunnies are very, very cool. I particularly like Neo’s, but even I would feel a teensy bit too much like a fan if I went out and bought Matrix sunnies (official or fake) just because they were in the Matrix.

I would feel even more too much like a fan if I bought one of Neo’s Vatican-esque frock coats, but you can get those online too, it would seem.


That said, there aren’t enough frock coats in this world.

Btw, I did see Reloaded last night. It was very, very good. I had been expecting it to be a little weak, and perhaps a bit cringeful, but it was none of these things.

I’m not going to say much more about it than that though, because I want to see it a couple more times, just to let it sink in. Kate and I stayed up til late last night talking about the implications of what we’d seen, and I have a couple of theories as to what is going on, but I want to consolidate my thoughts before I share them with you.

Plus I’d like to at least make a vague attempt to stop this from turning into the blog of a Matrix-obsessive, even though that is what I’m fast becoming, in my own isolationist way (as much of a fan as I am, I want to reach my own conclusions, so I’m still steering clear of all the Matrix press and opinion for now).

Hm, right, so something else to write about?


Nope, I’m gonna have to get back to you on that one.
