It was a somewhat uneventful week up until the weekend when Brit came over and we made Chicken Parmesan, watched a couple movies and finished Lego Star Wars.
The day after, I went to a friend’s birthday at the Ranch Roadhouse. The place used to be a techno club called “The Standard” before getting a country make-over. It was fun for a while, but I don’t think I’m cut out for clubs. Once the noise levels get high enough, I tend to completely shut down and people-watch, only to be interrupted to time to time by somebody asking me why I look so serious when I’m not even sure what’s going on anymore.
Sunday, I tried my hand at composing an overture for “Incinerations” while waiting for those bloody displacement maps to render. It was my first venture into music and it didn’t turn out half-bad (closer to three-quarters bad, but still listenable.) I might post up a listening sample when I get the chance to revise it some more. I basically plagiarized the theme songs from “Halo” and “Indiana Jones,” but hopefully nobody will notice.
And hurray! “Slumdog” won Best Picture! And “Wall-E” won best Best Animated Film! Awesome. All the other winners can go suck an egg. Hellboy and Speed Racer got robbed. *insert angry emoticon here*
