Well, today’s the big day. I’m off to get the keys to the new place and drop off the paint so as Tam can let her creative muse run wild while I’m at work and then tomorrow I get to join in and paint to my little hearts content. Hoooray!
Once the paint dries, then the fun stuff begins and all our time will be spent shuffling boxes from points a, b and c to point d. Then it will be the ever so fun task of going through all our collective accoutrements and deciding what all we have, what all we’re going to keep, who gets to throw out what, and who gets to share their toys. It’ll be grand fun.
I’ll take some pics of the new place when I get there today so as we have some before and after pics.
In the meantime and in between time. I leave you with a couple of different versions of a song that I’ve become readdicted to lately.
I’m moderately enthused to see this. I’ll be honest and say that I’m a little nervous about the look of the movie. I fear that it will be yet another butchering of Moore’s work but from what I can see there, it looks very faithful to the original and that querrelous auld git named Alan Moore will like it despite himself.
At first glance however it seems a little too glossy and shiny. In my mind’s eye, the Watchmen world was far darker and grittier but we’ll just have to wait and see. Casting, well I’m going to leave that one alone. Many people far, far nerdier than me have already spent hours in their batcaves and “command centers” designing the perfect dream cast of this movie and while I’ve dabbled here and there and have my opinions (*cough* Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Manhattan *cough*), I’m going to go in with an open mind and see how it works.
Speaking of comic adaptations. No, I still haven’t seen Dark Knight yet but I did see Hellboy II. It was a fun romp through cheesetastic cinema and funky creature designs from del Toro’s head. Personally I enjoyed it. It’s nothing immensely serious and overall I think I preferred the first one but this one is fun too.
Alright. Off to the land of showers and breakfasts I go.
I highly Recommend you go to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and see acts 1 and 2 of Joss Whedon’s Internet Musical starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day. It’s Great. I can’t wait for Act 3 on Saturday!
And now… I go see Hellboy 2 with my sweetheart. Yay me.
Due to the help of my ever-faithful henchman Igor and through the super science of blog necromancy I bring to you, from the very edge of death, my somewhat regular postings about music and such.
Yes, it has been awhile. I have to say that I have a decent excuse this time. I managed to land myself in a very healthy and happy relationship with a girl who puts up with all my eccentricities and foibles with good grace. She also managed to watch me type that with a straight face so I guess that’s saying something.
As you can imagine, it’s eaten up a lot of my time. Not only do have I a new girlfriend but I also lucked out and landed myself a promotion at work and am now the Store Manager. Not the acting or fill in or temporary, the bona fide, hardcore, my will be done, what is thy bidding my master, Boss of it all. So yay for me. When I’m not working or dealing with work I’m with the GF and her lovable two year old daughter so blogging has fallen by the wayside. Perhaps once we’re settled in the new apt, I’ll have more time… Yeah yeah. wishful thinking. I know.
Anyways. I’ve had this song stuck in my head for awhile now. It’s simple. It’s sweet and I like it. It’s Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T’s.
