gggnnngghhhhhh.... The "I'm Not Feeling Like A Real Post" Itemized Round-Up
This is sort of how I'm feeling at the moment. I'm doing all right, but, man... hordes of pinheads, why are you so many, and why do you keep coming? Even when I keep swinging my axe into your squishy selves?
Its just been a sort of irritating two days, and I'm hoping tomorrow goes better. Even when I know Friday is going to be a mess of scheduling conflicts.
Item - I finally finished DC's Brightest Day with Volume 3.
What a mess that thing was... It had some good elements but... by and large, I see no reason why I'd tell anyone else to read that thing. I find it sad that the only DC event book that felt driven more by character than "putting a hat on a hat" plot contrivances was the controversial Identity Crisis. And the only plot-driven one I felt worked as a story was Final Crisis, but only if you read the Superman tie-in. Go figure.
Item - if you're in Austin on Friday night, go see Jason's band "The Mono Ensemble" at the Carousel Lounge. Its from 9:00 - 10:30. There might be a cover, but the rockin' comes free with the seat.
If you're wondering what sort of music Jason plays - its sort of like this. Only with a lot more dinking around between songs.
Item - I'm in Dallas for the evening and very tired. I slept pretty badly last night. Probably why I'm cranky with humanity today, and why its okay if I'm holed up in a rather nice hotel room by myself for the evening.
Item - After enjoying both first seasons, I haven't made time for either Boardwalk Empire or The Walking Dead this year. I just can't seem to be motivated by TV at the moment.
Well, I am still making time for almost ten shows I can think of, and that seems like plenty, really. And considering I can't find time to read or catch up on my Noir viewing - where the heck is my time going?
Item - Be kind to your fellow humans. And animals. Your daily reminder.
Item - Jamie and I will be attending the UT/ Texas Tech game on Saturday. If you see it televised, I'll be the one in the orange shirt.
Item - Grapes of Wrath is a really, really long book.
Item - Be cool and buy my friends' album. I can't guarantee you'll like it, but you'll make some very nice boys in Seattle just happy as clams.
