Some of Pádraig’s friends organised a movie ‘night’ for him that was really a movie afternoon. They went to great length to get it all just right: crisps, popcorn, donuts, the whole works. The place certainly smelled like a cinema. The movie they had picked was Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, according to Wikipedia, a 1998 British crime comedy film written and directed by Guy Ritchie, produced by Matthew Vaughn and starring an ensemble cast featuring Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher, Nick Moran, Jason Statham, Steven Mackintosh, Vinnie Jones, and Sting.
Pádraig said he enjoyed it and so did his friends. I got a bit lost with the London underground gangsta language and an extraordinary amount of blood baths… all part of a surreal story line!
Earlier this morning, I had found an interview with Joseph J. Fins.
It’s just four minutes long and really well worth watching.
There is a right to live! There is a human right to conduct your life. With a severe acquired brain injury.
One of the greatest challenges in today’s society is science literacy, says Prof Fins in another interview.
And here is a longer, 34 minute talk presented at the Measuring Borderline States of Consciousness conference, hosted by the NYU Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness and the NYU Center for Bioethics on October 24-25, 2014.
If you still have time, have a look at TG4’s extraordinary documentary about a group of old men rowing from Ireland all the way to A Coruña from where they will walk the Camino Inglés to Santiago de Compostela!
The way Pádraig will go in April!
