Movies, Sunday Blues

So it's been a weekend of me disappeared into the other bedroom working on music between errands and movies. Just finished The Hunt for Red October, and boy does that movie still hold up after all these years. Sean Connery chewing Russian through his Scottish brogue notwithstanding, there's a fabulous feel of realism infused throughout.

It was DVD's for the weekend--although I was very tempted to go see The Dark Knight again. Ultimately, I opted out, since Abby's brother is coming into town next weekend and we'll almost certainly see it with him. I've already seen it twice, and I'm not above seeing it a fourth time, but you gotta spread it out a little. I'm reminded of my obsession that developed around the second installment of the Lord of the Rings films. I saw The Two Towers six times in the theaters, thrice during opening weekend. For me, it was worth the price of admission just to watch Legolas mount his horse (it is, seriously, the best moment in the movie).

The equivalent in TDK is the emergence of the Bat-pod. Because, yes, it's that bad-ass.


Today was spent "in the studio", stumbling out occasionally for food or conversation. The fruits of my labors can be found at my Abstract All-Stars page on AAS is the musical alter-ego I use for the weird, atmospheric, ambient, dance-y stuff I write. (read "weird" as "lyrically nonsensical", "dance-y" as "with looped drums", and "ambient" a "God, I use too much reverb"). Today's addition was Sunday Blues, and you are free to download and share it, along with anything else you find there.
