1. Went to see The Simpsons movie on Saturday. Bonus points: we saw it in Manhattan, with friends. IMHO, the first 20 minutes are hilarious, and then it becomes a by-the-numbers Simpsons episode, albeit longer and bigger. Which is to say, it's funny, but not the funniest movie (or Simpsons episode) I'd ever seen.

An argument can be made that it's somewhat repetitive (pretty much every song is in 5/4), and a lot of the songs sound the same (similar keys, similar grooves), but, nonetheless, it's been hitting a sweet spot in my brain and it just won't stop. And so I started working on a new song of my own, which is in 6/4 (I couldn't get it to work in 5/4), but my initial recordings sound kinda crappy. It sounds great in my head, though, so I'm gonna keep plugging away.
