v for very freakin awesome

Amanda and I had a good weekend. We spent Saturday helping her brothers move into a new apartment. Some moving related math:

two separate aparments worth of stuff + moving them into 1 third-floor apartment with no elevator = stiff and sore Sunday

But Sunday was nice (despite the rain). I got my next article for Game Developer done and out of the way. Turned out well, I'm happy. And later in the day we went to see "V for Vendetta" for free. For a limited time, buying frozen items at Safeway seems to result in free movie tickets. It's all a ploy to get people to see "Ice Age 2" but that movie looks like a turd, so we saw "V" instead.

And man oh man was it good. I loved it. Highly recommend it to any and all interested in a good action/alternative-future flick that'll get your policital blood pumping. I know this will resonate with everyone except for Ry, but it has a very "1984" vibe to it which I really dug. Good, good stuff.

Anyway, it was a good weekend and it now looks like it's going to be a busy week. I have music to implement, cutscenes to score, emails to mail, archives to coordinate, meetings to decline, etc. They sure are keeping me busy these days.

In conclusion, go see "V for Vendetta."

::shrug:: Amanda and I hated the first movie. We rented it and turned it off after we had decided 1/4 of the way through that we knew the entire story. Now, that's not to say that we turned it off after 1/4 of the way through. We actually watched most of the rest of it. But when we realized that we'd be right about every single prediction we'd made after only about 15 minutes of watching, we didn't feel any need at all to finish watching the film. We were just completely bored.
