Yesterday: I managed to bang out more of the next chapter in "This Shouldn't Be Happening...", and a little more of the piece I promised to he_dreams_awake
. Plus, I ran a few errands with my mom. And I *KNOW* I said I had to cut back on my spending, but I nipped into Blockbuster Video and rented three DVDS. The "Ref Award" noms are coming up and I need to watch a few things that were on my list, to balance out the noms:
-- "Corpse Bride", which got a good review over on DecentFilms.com, and it's an interesting twist on an Eastern European folk-tale as well as a departure from the usual sweetness and light romance. Heck, it's Tim Burton. It's Tim Burton being gleefully morbid in his classic Edward Gorey style. Goths rejoice!
-- "March of the Penguins", okay, I like penguins. They're like funny little people when they strut around on the ice.
-- "Sin City", I started reading the graphic novel at Larry's Comics (Gad, when was the last time I was there...) and I've heard the movie is an extremely direct translation of the GN, which reads like a film noir on methamphetamines.
Today: Quiet day at work today. And now the poll result on the Houseparty entries...
As of this moment, I've got nine "Please don't move the entries to another LJ" and three "Yes, please, the paradigm shift is jarring" (Heh, try being me... :: grinning crookedly:: ). I've decided to hit a comprimise: I am going to start putting the Houseparty notes behind a clearly marked LJ cut such as "Paradigm shift: ::Insert catchy intro::"
EDITED TO ADD: Ancient Faith Radio
