So I spent all of yesterday either at work or traveling – from 8 AM to 6:30 PM. It was a really long day, so please excuse me for not posting yesterday. I was absurdly tired. I came home from New York to the Philadelphia suburbs for the weekend to see my family, and the trip yesterday took about five hours from start to finish. That’s a subway from NYU to Penn Station, then a bus to 30th Street Station in Philly, and then the SEPTA R5 home. I wanted to sleep on the bus but I couldn’t…the ride was bumpy and I couldn’t rest my head on the window. I know, poor me. But I did get some new Gameboy music composed in my bus-induced stupor, and listening to it now in a more lucid state, it actually sounds pretty good. Definitely worth working on. Actually, I think I’m going to make a Soundcloud account or something today so I can link to tracks I’m working on from here. That would be cool, because then you could hear them…and realize how awesome they are! EDIT: There it is, check out some of my music!
Also, I watched Zombieland with my family last night. I love Jessie Eisenberg’s screen persona, I really do. And I love watching zombies get owned. I also enjoyed Bill Murray’s amazing cameo, and some of the jokes in this movie were really funny. Despite all of this, and despite me really wanting it to be good, it just wasn’t that good. I mean, I enjoyed watching it quite a bit due to the plentiful destruction of zombies and Jessie Eisenberg (and Emma Stone, of course) – but it really isn’t a good movie. It’s got issues, mainly about the plot being totally contrived and predictable I think. Also, I know this was really to be expected, but WTF is the deal with shoehorning in a romantic subplot to every single movie these days? At the beginning of Zombieland, I was almost allowing myself to look forward to the story of Jessie Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson as two lone wolves, which would have been awesome – then I quickly realized that this was wishful thinking. Here’s someone who says it better than I can. That video sums up my thoughts about horror/zombie movies pretty well, as it turns out.
Oh and my sister wanted everyone to know that she learned how to do the dance to that song Apache yesterday. She showed me. It was funny.
I’m listening to Black Star now. That’s Mos Def and Talib Kweli together. You know they’re awesome, and so is their album.
This is another render I did in Blender a little while back.
Yeah. So I’m home for the weekend, coming back to NY on Sunday night. Looking forward to another long bus ride, and hanging out with Quinn tonight!
And here’s proof of who the bed intruder actually is.
