Yeesh. Good things have been happening but still for the past little while I’ve been waking up, or going to bed, with this overwhelming sense of dread that frankly has no reason being there. But there it is, creeping at the back of my mind, causing a pain in my stomach and a chill through my body that I can’t seem to get rid of despite the nearly 30 degree heat.
No real clue as to why, I’m just…expecting something bad to happen. Either someone hating me for something I did, someone playing along with me as if things are dandy before dropping a bombshell….I just…I don’t know. That kind of thing has happened so often that I’m a little gun shy and don’t respond well to moments of peace.
Just put out by the wonderful Bram “Texture” Geiben.
Music from and influenced by the film BLADERUNNER: an attempt to recreate the psychogeographic landscape of the city, using some familiar elements from the film, and later works with a complementary feel.
No playlist, but the mix features tracks by Vangelis, Fhloston Paradigm, Kuedo, Micoland, Nine Inch Nails, DROKK, Portishead, El-P, and Burial, plus samples from the film.
Oof. These past few weeks. A combination of health-related fun and not as much sleep as I should be getting has left me a bit out of it. The meds I had to take to deal with the health fun hasn’t been helping either. Have felt like I’ve been having a hangover for the past week. Or a concussion. Regardless, words don’t come to me to great lately. Especially when talking or e-mailing someone.
But hey, things are happening. And they’re happening soon, which is pretty amazing. I got an internship at a music publishing company and, after informing them of pre-made plans, start next week. Will it lead to something a bit more solid than what I currently have going? I’m hoping so.
TRAVEL! In about ten days the boy and I are off to Chicago to have some C2E2 fun and explore the fine city for a few days. Ever since we first started discussing this trip I’ve been looking forward to it. Can’t wait to admire some of the nice spots, drink some amazing craft beer, try a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza (yum!) and walk around a city that I have been told is amazing.
And later on this month I’ll be off to LA for MusExpo, where I’ll be pitching some music to industry bigwigs and shmoozing in some pretty wonderful nightspots. Even teaching a round table…thing. Really looking forward to exploring the area and meeting new people.
I have kinda-sorta-maybe decided that if job prospects among other things aren’t really going the way they’d like…I’m going to look in to taking out a student loan and enroll in Niagara College’s Brewmaster & Brewery Operations Management course. I honestly think I’ll be happy there and it can lead to a career in the brewing industry and eventually lead towards the dream of running my own brewpub. So…yeah, we’ll see there.
So yeah, that seems to be what’s going on with me in the immediate future…
So my family just got a new television. A 40″ 1080p HDTV to be exact. I’ve been excited, because I can finally play games on my Xbox (the previous TV was too dark). I celebrated by buying LA Noire and Gears of War 2. The latter is…I’ll admit, completely blowing me away.
But it’s a game that I’ve always been interested in. Primarily because of their wonderful trailers. To show you, here are the trailers to all three games in the series.
These trailers just blow me away.
So, yeah. I made a heatpack last night.
This was my second time ever on a sewing machine and the first time ever that I made something crafty without a teacher looking over my shoulder. All in all it was simple. Cut rectangles, put together, leave hole to put stuff in, close up hole. And it’s far from perfect (I might need to do some patching up later), but I’m proud of it anyways. I used brown rice for the filling (which smells just wonderful) and putting this thing in the microwave is just…wow. Such wonderful warmth for these cold months!
And even better I still have a buttload of this nifty batman fabric! Thinking of making some small lavender pouches and a few other things. We’ll see!
