Spent about three hours washing Evey and blacking out the bowties on Saturday.
Other than that, I’ve not been doing a whole lot. I saw Ninja Assassin last week and it was pretty good relative to what I was expecting. Lot of blood and ownage. :D
I also saw both of the Twilight movies, and…unfortunately…I liked them. :(
And now for the obligatory “what I’ve been listening to” part of the post. I have been into electronic stuff pretty hardcore lately, and my latest kick is electro-hop, which is – as it sounds – electronic hip-hop. I’ve never taken hip-hop lyrics seriously, but I’m really digging this genre (it helps that I love keytars :D).
The band I’m enjoying the most is Hyper Crush. This video is for their song “The Arcade.” It’s pretty much about how awesome old school video games were, I guess. hahahaha.
I love the Mercedes emblem around Donny’s neck, the shirt Preston (the keytarist) is wearing, and the Super Mario Bros. video in the background with Megaman instead of Mario. :P
Okay, yeah, it was a pretty weak snow, but…it was cool nonetheless. It’s a lot easier to see in this video that I took under a lamppost.
Also, I’ve been meaning to share this for a while, but I kept forgetting. It’s a very short video of the key to my Camaro. Just so I don’t get any smartass comments, I know Volkswagon did this first, but it’s genius and every new car should have this kind of key.
On a final note about cars, I have six Camaro Hot Wheels cars. I’m collecting them. :D
I’ve been listening to one of Fall Out Boy’s new songs, “From Now On We Are Enemies,” a heck of a lot. It’s about the composer Antonio Salieri being jealous of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart because he thought Mozart was very undeserving of his fame because of his lifestyle (as far as I can tell). It’s a great song and another of Pete Wentz’s fits of lyrical genius.
I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything of linguistic substance, but lately I haven’t had much to post about besides Evey.
First of all, Katy Perry’s MTV Unplugged live CD is absolutely amazing. I love her voice so much. She did a brilliant cover of a Fountains of Wayne song, and the entire album has a “lounge” feel to it. It’s really worth checking out if you appreciate beautiful singing.
Yesterday I hit the 400 mile mark on Evey. When I got the car, it had 20 miles on it from the factory and the PDI at the dealership, and I took a picture at 22. The odometer reading grows so quickly. :P Come tomorrow, I’ll have owned her for a week, and I couldn’t be happier. Every time I walk up to it, I smile. There’s liking your car, and then there’s this – finally having a car that I once called a dream car. I just flat out love this car. It’s so much fun to drive. :D Everything about it is fantastic, right down to my switchblade key. I think between the Camaro and the Chevy Volt, GM is really looking up (Chevy Volt > all hybrids).
Last week was pretty awesome. I took off on Wednesday to pick up my car, and then I had the rest of the week off for Thanksgiving to enjoy it.
And speaking of Thanksgiving, I hope everyone had a good one. I usually make a post about being thankful, but I guess I’ve just been neglectful of my poor blog lately. :( We had delicious food (duck and deer, mmmm), and I have plenty of leftovers in my freezer right now. The rest of the holiday was spent with family and friends.
Now, it’s Christmas time and I guess I should be happier about that, but I really enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday. :P The tree is up at my parents’ and I put up a little one at the apartment, though I only turned on the lights once.
Other than that, I’ve been watching way too much anime and playing Starfox 64 a good bit. :)
I need to get back in the habit of updating this thing regularly, because I hate making this catch-up posts where I have to condense a bunch of crap into something readable (or slightly readable :P).
