It's been way too long, but there were valid reasons.

1.  The 6 Characters videos got finished very late last Wednesday, at around 2:00am or so.  They sent me back working final edits (edits locked in place, with music, but still needing color correction and a final sound mix), and overall I must admit that I'm pretty proud of myself.  They're being shown to the commissioning agent tomorrow, and then they'll start appearing on YouTube (and here) shortly thereafter.  And so now that I'm done with that, I can start getting re-focused on my own stuff... except I've been having way too much fun with Reason to want to go back to ProTools.  

2.  I couldn't help myself; I went out and bought Guitar Hero after I finished the 6 Characters videos, and it's totally freakin' awesome.  If only I could get points for playing my real guitar.

3.  Kath and I went up to Springfield, MA for her grandfather's memorial service.  The ceremony was very nice, even if it was a bit freezing.  Her cousins are very cool people and we had a nice time together.  

4.  The train rides up and down were spent listening to the Andrew Bird album, which really is quite phenomenal.  On my first listen it was nice but I knew that it was much deeper than what I was hearing, and so finally it sunk in on the train.  It's great train music, by the way.

5.  I guess it's sort of a good thing that I'm not taking this year's baseball season so seriously as in years past; I'm sure I'd have thrown several tantrums already.  

Kath and I finally saw the new Sopranos last night; without getting spoiler-y, I just gotta say:  did we really wait a year (or however long it's been) to see that?  Is Tony Soprano even limber enough to jump the shark?  Ugh.  I hate Janice.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
