Neo evades me

Yanna sent me a picture of her using a banana as a phone (what a smile she had too :D). Surprisingly, Yanna was not referencing the well known “Banana phone” song, but instead was imitating the following Keanu Reeves picture:


My instinct told me immediately that this was an edited image from the Matrix. I went ahead and watched the “Escaping from work” scene, to find only the following shot:


I now thought that perhaps another film had Keanu actually using a banana as a phone. My search failed to return any results. I went back to a more generic search, and found a fan siteย that had the following shot:


Yanna suggested that it may have been a camera shot as a opposed to the film footage. After looking through the fan site and seeing other shots of the Matrix that were not shots from the film footage, this seemed the most sensible explanation.

First weekend in Cardiff

After a nervous travel to Cardiff by car, I have stayed for the first time in Cardiff, with Yanna, in her flat by the bay.

Some mishaps have occurred (including having to drive back to the shop to buy the main part of our meals, breaking a part of Yannas furniture when loading it into the car, spilling my rice and korma onto the floor, and walking into an ajar door! – all in one day -.-), but it has been a nice weekend.

We are about to have Yannas special spaghetti, and Yanna is asking me what I want to watch…
