I am feeling exceptionally elated after today’s incredibly fun and productive study group meeting which lasted from 3:30 pm to 8 pm and during which we managed to go over French cinema since the New Wave, Danish cinema from 1960 until now, and finally American cinema from 1920 until now (Morten spoke about this for… it must’ve been over 2 hours, it was incredible). Now I’m just kicking back, enjoying some good music, and making ready to test a level editor NVShacker coded up for our Breakout minigame in TNM (yes, we have a level editor for one of our minigames, how cool is that?). I have a sudden onset of exhibitionism, I feel a need to share with the world what sort of entertainment I am currently ingesting:
My current playlist
- Green Day – Working Class Hero
- Atreyu – Shameful
- Feeder – Piece by Piece
- Finntroll – Trollhammaren
- Ministry – Scarecrow
- Van Halen – Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love
- Linkin Park – What I’ve Done
- Story Of The Year – We Don’t Care Anymore
- Silversun Pickups – Well Thought Out Twinkles
Each of these is my favourite song today. Except Scarecrow, it’s just been a while since I heard it last.
Films I have borrowed from Frederik and need to watch ASAP
- Psycho (Hitchcock 1960)
- The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (Leone 1966)
- Once Upon a Time in the West (Leone 1968)
- A Clockwork Orange (Kubrick 1971)
- Edward Scissorhands (Burton 1990)
- Dead Man (Jarmusch 1995)
- The Proposition (Hillcoat (but most Nick Cave) 2005)
Lots of westerns on there for some reason. I also borrowed Ghost Dog, but I just realized I’ve already seen it. I’ve also already seen The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, but it’s about time I watch it again.
Games I am wasting too much of my time on
- Call of Juarez
- Guitar Hero 2
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Huh, that’s certainly a short list. Guess it’s because of the whole studying thing. I should be playing STALKER, but it freaks me out too much. Yes I know, I’m easy to scare. I’ll get back to it after the exam, I’m sure.
New Junction Point company blog! All I wanted for my birthday was for Warren Spector to start a blog. Now Von Stalhein got it for his birthday instead (Congrats Stally!) but I’m not jealous at all because I will benefit from this! The JPS website got a makeover too, and it has concept art on it now! Well, I’m hyped.
So Warren, about that job opening…
