Well I've had an interesting couple of days. This past weekend has been a lot fun. As I mentioned earlier in the week, I planned on hanging out with my old college buddies Paul and Katie. Well Leah went out the night before, and it made me sad. So, rather than do the same thing to her--I included her in our reindeer games.
Much fun was had. Rather than write about it though, I'd just recommend you read Katie's most recent blog post--where you can get a synopsis of all the relevant stuff that went down.
Speaking of other people's blogs (I try to mention other people as much as possible, because I get a kick whenever I'm mentioned on another blog), Leah has a really thought-provoking blog about changing her name. You should go check it out.
Can you believe that I'm going to be married in like two weeks? Yikes. Me neither. Anyway, I'd never really thought too much about her changing her name, but her post really made me think.
What else is going on? Oh. Last night me and Leah went and saw THE DARK CRYSTAL down at the Tivoli. I'd never seen it before (Leah had, she was real excited). It's this strange 80's Jim Henson/Frank Oz fantasy movie. Lots of crazy puppets. To be honest, I didn't think the story was all that great (a bit derivative, like most fantasy--I'm sorry to say) but the production values were amazing. Henson and company did a fantastic job creating a living-breathing world with their puppets. Critters great and small scurry, crawl, and ooze all over the place. It was truly amazing considering it blew away 99.99% of similar fantasy/sci-fi flicks made in the past few years WITH CGI.
That's about it. I'm working on my writing, I'd say more but I only dissapoint everyone when I say too much about that (how is that book going???). This, my last full week before the wedding (and more importantly ROCK BAND 2 drop) is jam-packed with awesomeness. Tuesday I'm going to see heavy-metal icons Motorhead. Wednesday I'm going with Leah to see Vampire Weekend (great new band, those lads). Friday night I want to see GRINDHOUSE at the midnight Tivoli movie. And Saturday I'm attending yet another concert: Journey, Heart, and Cheap Trick.
Exciting stuff. Hopefully my head won't explode. Anyone wishing to see GRINDHOUSE should contact me, as I think it would be fun to go with a bunch of people to see that.
That is all.
