Oh, look. Snow again. Yippee.

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*

    People who look serious in clubs are people trying to work out why people dancing don’t realise how stupid it looks.

    I don’t have any problem with the dancing. In fact, it seems to be the only thing you can do in a place like that. Nobody can hold a conversation unless they go out to the smoker’s pit. But then that raises the question of why go to a club at all? Dancing, drinking, smoking, socializing – it can all be done in a pub or in your own home if you arrange something.

    But at a club:
    a) It’s all arranged, i.e. you don’t have to do anything but turn up.
    b) You don’t need to clean up afterwards, I used to work in a club, the place is frickin filthy when it shuts.
    c) You can meet people you don’t know at all.
    d) Nobody calls the cops for having your music so loud.
    e) Do you have a full lighting rig in your lounge?

    Really though a club can only be enjoyed if you’re willing to get into the flow of things.

    People don’t generally care how they look when they’re dancing, that’s not the point of it for most people.

    On c):

    How on earth do you meet anyone? Club owners actually try to discourage conversation by cranking up the music so that we focus more on drinking than talking. And it’s very awkward to yell in a stranger’s ear and having to repeatedly shout “WHAT?”

    Yeah that’s pretty much how you do it.

    Or some people just start dancing with somebody then find out their name and gender later.
