Everything New

New Place, New Room (Boarding House), New Work, New laboratory, New environment, New people, New companion, Everything is New! As I start my new work, it seems everything is unfamiliar, the laboratory is small, with only 45 working PCs, the area is closed, no transparent glass walls. I remembered and missed ITRZ. But I love this work! It is so challenging for me, teaching 3rd year and 4th year high school students is the first time in life. I have pay 500 /month for my boarding house, I have to cook for my own food. As I wait for the opening of the class, I am excited at the time, nervous.

Quid Pro Quo (2008)

Public Radio investigative reporter Isaac Knott just happens to be confined to a wheel chair. In the course of doing a story about disability wanna-be's, Isaac traverses a surreal world of fetishism and transgressive eroticism that recalls the unique perspectives of Luis Bunuel and Alfred Hitchcock. In the course of Isaac's investigation, he finds Fiona--or she finds him--and she offers him a window into a dark place that exists somewhere between reality and dreams. Her life's aspiration is to be crippled, or at least perceived as such. She's beautiful and successful, yet she longs to be physically destroyed to regain some spiritual transcendence in her life. Her complexity, along with her erotic compulsions, prove irresistible to Isaac. Isaac is drawn to Fiona's dark side because somewhere in the strata of her perversion lies an underlying truth about himself. He is confined to a wheelchair because of an accident. What can he possibly learn about himself from Fiona's desire to be like him? The answer of course is everything.
