full life

(no subject)

I'm having one of those days where I want to make a substantial post, and I've had pretty much nothing to do, but I'm having trouble coming up with anything interesting.  Bear with me.

1.  Oh, well, this is news.  Cornelius released a new EP today, and I must warn any and all Cornelius fans - don't get it.  It's hard to consider anything that costs $7.99 a "waste", especially from Cornelius, but goddamn, this is a major disappointment.  Of the 10 tracks, there's maybe 3 worthwhile things on it, and one of them is directly lifted from "Sensuous".  Most aggravating is the very last track, which is 33 minutes long.  It consists entirely of three things:  one chord, slowly decreasing in volume over 4 minutes or so... 25 minutes of silence... and another chord, slowly increasing in volume over the last 4 minutes. 

2.  In completely unrelated - and awesome - news, it looks like Duke Nukem 3D will come to XboxLive Arcade sometime in the next few months. 

3.  HD-DVD might have lost the format war, but I'm still glad I have what I have; we watched the first 2/3s of Zodiac last night, and it was jaw-dropping.  The movie was filmed with some state-of-the-art digital camera, and so the data is taken directly from the source.  If anything, I was a little distracted from the movie itself because the picture was so incredible. 

Kath is out tonight; not sure what I'm doing.

My work neighbor always has a little bowl of candy on her desk.  Today, it's little Dum-Dum lollipops, and I just discovered a Root Beer one.  Of all the Dum-Dum flavors, root beer was my all-time favorite when I was a little kid, and so now I've totally regressed to being 9 years old, as I while away the remaining hours here at the office.
