Random Thoughts

Here's a quick look at what I've been doing lately (from my journal on :

Trying to finish some more paintings for an upcoming show, as well as a new business card design. Earlier I started working on my filing taxes (ugh); it usually takes me several aborted attempts before I actually sit down and finish them.

For some reason, watching Pump Up the Volume has reminded me of Play Misty for Me, an early film directed by (and starring) Clint Eastwood about a DJ who gets stalked by a crazy woman. Really, the only similarity between the two movies is that the protagonists are both radio personalities.

Recently, I traded in a bunch of old, unwanted video games for these exciting titles: Demon's Souls, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Assassin's Creed II. Once I started playing Uncharted 2, I couldn't stop; it's really absorbing. Nathan Drake's exploits encouraged me to finally watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (which was a fun movie--strange seeing Charles Widmore being nice and the janitor from Scrubs being serious;)).

Demon's Souls (shouldn't the title actually be Demons' Souls?) has captured my attention as well, despite its exceptional difficulty. After trying several character classes, I think that the Hunter or the Soldier are my favorites, but I'm still not having much luck getting too far into the Boletarian Palace. I'm much more used to hacking and slashing aggressively than this game allows at my current level.

The other game I may want in the near future is God of War III. I've been anticipating its release (March 16) ever since I finished GoW II. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
