Buffy shrugged

I am still undecided about whether I agree with this highly politicised reading of "The Cabin in the Woods" (Contains spoilers, but then you really can't talk about the film without giving away the central idea) just as I will probably have to rewatch "Firefly" looking for hints of Ayn Rand's philosophy in it.
On the other hand I do agree that "Cabin in the woods" seriously fell down once it tried to go deep. On the surface it is a fairly entertaining ride but when you start to think about "what the film might want to say", you start to notice the logical flaws and half-baked ideas. I see the ending not so much as political but rather as insufficiently developed.

Pretentious coffee

In other news: I have now been at the stroller-haters-café and.... it's okay. Certainly, the coffee isn't cheap at 3,50 EUR a cup but then you get the absolutely lovely staff tellng you how to get the most enjoyment out of your brew, not unlike the way they would at a wine tasting night. Which is undoubtedly the way they see themselves and the way the other patrons looked. It's not cheap and it may be utterly pretentious but I would be lying if I said that the coffee wasn't very, very good.
