Whenever I ride the bus, I listen to my music at a volume which drowns out any outside noise. This is not only due to the fact that the buses here are obnoxiously loud, but the fact that I can’t stand listening to the insipid conversations going on around me as well. I’d rather not listen to you hitting on that girl or how funny you think you are. I don’t want to hear about your opinions on The Latest Movie or how rude that customer was at work or how many times you decide to add “like” in a sentence. I suppose that it’s no one is really at fault, since the roaring engines in each bus prevent conversations at a normal volume. I can only hope that I don’t annoy other people as much as they annoy me if I’m traveling with a friend.

I watched Infernal Affairs and enjoyed it. I particularly liked the cool colours of the film, which contrasts with how Hong Kong is normally portrayed in the movies. Anthony Wong is great as the superintendent, but all the other guys look too good to be cops.
