I’ve spend much of today listening to 70’s stadium rock … man, it’s the greatest. Right up there with 80’s power ballads and heavy metal, and that’s saying something.
Been reading some new comics, firstly J. Michael Stracztnski’s “Rising Stars” which is (as expected) utterly engrossing, from a story perspective. However, I find the artwork to be a bit of a mindscramble – I have difficulty telling some of the characters apart at first glance, and they all appear to have exactly one facial expression. Which is a bit such, cos otherwise it’s awesome.
Secondly, the also very good “Powers” comic, by Brian Bendis and Michael Oeming – I’ve had this one recommended to me about 10,000 times in the last couple of years, and it does in fact turn out to be pretty damn good.
Oh, yeah. Annette made me watch “From Justin to Kelly”. Which is a “romantic comedy” about text messaging. Imagine my delight. It was much much worse that I was expecting, however. If you’re pondering seeing it for sheer crap value, don’t. Go rent “The Rollerblade Seven” instead. You’ll be glad you did.
What else .. um… work is being busy, but a bunch of fun otherwise. I got to buy a FRICKIN’ LASER the other day, to connect a couple of buildings in town. New Layer-1 devices are always welcome in my lab! Short-range IR lasers are amazingly cheap these days!
The apartment appears laughably not-even-close to finished, and we were supposed to be in there in around a week. There’s NO WAY this will be happening in that time frame. Ah well. Hopefully we’re not pissing Annette’s parents off too much by lurking in the back backroom like toads in a well.
