I did this on TW.net once, before I had a blog and I would just change the
front page randomly. I think it was inspired by an old post at Emma
Story's blog. It's better than just saying "I'm busy."
Last week and the next, I am:
- Composing: but not for myself. Three videos will be produced
for the GDLN world forum, and they need music similar to the theme I've
already made for background. Note to budding Spielbergs: do not tell
your music director that you need "fast," "slow," and "really fast."
music. It tends to be unhelpful.
- Planning: for National Novel Writing Month. Will anything
actually get written? Hard to say. But it's nice to have plans.
- Reading: Righteous by Lauren Sandler and The God
Delusion by Richard Dawkins. I've been on a bit of a dominionist kick
lately, and I'm going to try to see Jesus Camp this weekend if work
- Watching: Night Stalker, the remake of the 70's cult
classic that starred Darrin McGavin--a.k.a. The Old Man. It's a bit of an
X-Files ripoff, and I think I'll actually have something to say about that
shortly. Of course, Galactica is back for the third season, and
it's every bit as good as you'd expect. I will definitely have things to
say about it.
- Walking: the dog. He has turned into a pretty good puppy after
all. The cat's trouble, but charming trouble.
- Playing: The Secret of Monkey Island using PocketSCUMM.
It's easier than I remember, and wittier although not as funny, if that
makes any sense. Rocket Slime is on the way from Amazon at some
point, but frankly I've had no real gaming time lately.
- Working: overtime. All this weekend, and probably much of next
week while the World Forum finishes. There's a lot of voiceovers to be
done, and B-SPAN is picking up. Just don't tell my boss: I haven't
technically asked to come in after hours, not that it's ever stopped me
Updates as events warrant.
