Current Media Consumption Status Report

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.

Other media

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…

    Pscyho and Good, Bad, & Ugly -> my favorite scary movie and favorite western. You’ve obviously got good taste :-P .

  2. Jonas says

    Have you ever seen Once Upon a Time in the West?

  3. EER says

    I need to see Once Upon a Time in the West this year, and a lot more. I’m about halfway towards my personal goal to see the top 25 movies on IMDB in 2007:

  4. Jonas says

    Hm, of the top 25, I have not seen the following:

    Schindler’s List (yes, I know…)
    Rear Window
    12 Angry Men
    Cidade de Deus

    And of the next 25, I have yet to see:
    Sunset Blvd.
    It’s a Wonderful Life
    Paths of Glory
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
    A Clockwork Orange (that one will be remedied within a week though :P )

    Apart from that, I’ve seen them all. I think that’s a pretty decent statistic.

  5. EER says

    On my todo list for 2007, 11 movies:
    Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, Il (1966)
    Shichinin no samurai (1954)
    Rear Window (1954)
    12 Angry Men (1957)
    Cidade de Deus (2002)
    Goodfellas (1990)
    C’era una volta il West (1968)
    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
    Psycho (1960)
    Citizen Kane (1941)
    North by Northwest (1959)

    I’m fairly confident I’ll be able to find most movies somewhere this year.

    From 26 to 50 I need another whopping 16, so I may have spent my time too much on bad movies ;)

    Quite a nice score you have though :o

  6. Morten S. Clausen says

    Hey! I’m mentioned in this blog! Damn.. I almost miss that exam… Good times + Kristin. Boat drinks, my friend.

  7. Jonas says

    I don’t miss the exam but I do miss meeting up with you and Kristin in the park.

    I also miss the great weather :(
