We need fire.

Holy crap where did the time go?

I've been supremely busy. Working two jobs was a killer experience, and classes for the Fall semester start tomorrow. I basically had no real energy to work with, despite wanting to talk about a bunch of things, so I'm going to just send sparks flying here...

-I have seen the Scott Pilgrim film twice now, and I am in love with it. It is perfect. If they were real, Sex Bob-Omb would be one of my favorite bands. It makes me want to get back into making music, too.

-I will be downloading the Scott Pilgrim game this week. I got the soundtrack, which is amazing. Sadly, my iPod is dead...

-Found Roadside Picnic, the novel which my second favorite film, Stalker, is based off of. THEY ARE NOTHING ALIKE. Well, just a little alike. But still. I wanted to write a big huge thing about it, but I dunno. It was just a mediocre novel, and the film is so much better. Here, have a gander at it:

-With my iPod dead, I am stuck with the radio in my car. I have learned that grunge is possibly making a comeback, what with Soundgarden back together and Alice in Chains putting new stuff out with their new singer. Pearl Jam is still inexplicably popular, and the rest is just a gray smear of mediocrity and angst. Except for Avenged Sevenfold and the occasional classic like Possum Kingdom by the Toadies.

-The power supply to my Wii is dead, too, due to a lightning strike. Which blows.

-One day I thumbnailed 22 pages of Endseekers. Progress!

-Reading a novel by Rick Moody called the Four Fingers of Death. It's the novelization of a fictional remake of the Crawling Hand in the year 2025 and it is just...wild. Zero gravity gay sex scene, anyone?

-Went to Gatlinburg yesterday to see the penguins at the Ripley's Aquarium. Didn't get any clear shots of them, but I DID get this lovely shot of a cuttlefish. You know, the real-life spawn of Cthulhu! Also got Dr Pepper flavored barbecue sauce, which will either be totally awesome or terrible. And I made my annual trip to the beef jerky outlet for my favorite barbecue-flavored alligator jerky. And rock candy. Don't look at me like that!

Hurm. That's it. I'll try to keep updating more regularly, but don't count on it...
