It's a Star Wars movie

So for work, we had to create some video footage for this class we were doing. Some of us had huge vision, including myself. While I already knew the movie making program Pinnacle, I took the opportunity to make a movie revolving around the Bookmobile, and make it like Star Wars with a dash of Python and Red Dwarf. Hardly a masterpiece by any means, but it is some of my best film work! Green screen rules!

We have settled into our new house wonderfully, Fungalow living is the BEST!!!

Reading: I just finished a wonderful, haunting novella called The Lord God Bird by Russell Hill, and now am beginning to sludge through the pre-buzzed thicky The Passage by Justin Cronin; not as literate as Hill's book and taking some getting into, but getting there. Also, still waiting for my LibraryThing early reviewer copy of Ryu Murakami's novel Audition.

Listening: Various stuff to make my first ever iPod mix, but recently been digging a lot of the late 80s bands I used to like or was curious about. Is THIS my mid-life crisis? Instead of a red convertible, I buy all the tunes of my youth? The Godfathers, The Sugercubes, The Smiths, Pete Townsend. More recently, The Magnificents and the new Gogol Bordello.
