dream of electric sheep
hey that's supposed to be a very good book... i read minority report by him, it was a compilation of his short stories...but i forgot whether i've read "do androids dream of electric sheep". hee hee.

Re: dream of electric sheep
haha my sister's the one who's trying to force me to read it. but since you say it's nice, might as well give it a try. :) i rather watch a movie anyday! just replied your mail by the way, and rushing out again. have a nice day. really hope to see you soon... but looks like our timetables can only fit after we come back from our hols. at least that gives me time to get you something for your long-belated birthday! so long. miss you..

Re: dream of electric sheep
hmmm i think i haven't read it yet, come to think of it. can you lend it to me after you've read? i'm planning to do lots of reading. but i've read "we can remember it for you wholesale" from his minority report compilation. it was the basis for the movie "total recall", starring arnold schwarz-i-dunno-how-to-spell-negger. have you seen or heard of it? "electric sheep" was also made into "bladerunner". it's quite amazing how these people can make such short stories into such long movies as those 2 and minority report....

Re: dream of electric sheep
yep just drop me a reminder now and then haha. never watched total recall or bladerunner... tho' bladerunner sounds interesting, read a few pages off "electric sheep". speaking of which, i should go get these 2 vcds huh? i thought minority report was good... until the end... sigh. as i told my sister, never saw a better movie ruined as badly as that. heehee

Re: dream of electric sheep
argh sorry big bad horrible terrible mistake *hits head with table lamp haha* the bad ending to a good movie i was rambling about just now's actually AI... artificial intelligence. somehow i got them both mixed up... minority report's good... cool... i loved it. all the cars flying on their weird highways, all the futuristic stuff. suppose that's all the philip k. dick guy ever writes? my sis has another book of his, "man in the high castle" or something which i suspect is also some futuristic thing like that. *still blushing from that gross mistake above*

Re: dream of electric sheep
hahhaa...yup i was actually sittin there wondering what the bad ending to minority report was. i didn't watch A.I. but yes i agree with ya, minority report was a great movie, cool cinematography, engaging plot. but believe it or not, the original story wasn't like that at all you know, that's why i'm so amazed by the makers of the movie. the story for one was really short and didn't offer so much on the futuristic stuff, and didn't even have the same ending as the movie, but i think the movie captured the idea and theme rather accurately. it was really just BASED on it(the story), not entirely copying it.

Re: dream of electric sheep
no same ending?! hmm... well, think about it, the minority report ending wasn't exactly great... but ok lah. looks like i should really go read the book... when the inspiration strikes. been feeling totally lazy. *snore*
