I saw two snakes this week. Tuesday, I think. One was brown, the other was black. One was small; the other was big. One was shy, the other was angry. One slithered about and seemed to wonder "where is he?", while the other just coiled up and hissed at me... before they both slowly slithered their way away into the grass. If you wonder why this choice of headline: snakes aren't that common a sight here, cute slithery critters as they are! Not even on a plain.
Otherwise? It's all work and no play. No time for games. At least no time for medal games. I gave Bombshell a try yesterday and was disappointed - probably won't be finishing that one. I gave Mini Doom a try before that and was all but disappointed, but I'll play and post more of that later on. I skimmed through the games I had installed before summer and realized I'm not really that interested in them anymore, so I uninstalled a bunch. Before summer I would have had to force myself to take such drastic initiative, even though some of them are outplayed since many years, but now it came easy. Their time is passed; I'm moving on. There's other plays on my platter now. Except for Oni. Oni's an exception. Of some games you can just never get too much...
I went to a Dada Life concert this Friday with my buddy bear. He claimed a spot in the front of the crowd and went haywire; I crept backwards when push came to shove a bit too much. House music. Crazy. The crowd really went bananas, and I did get sucked into the energy eventually, even if it isn't my style of music. Not really. The hooks are good - the rest is monotone, but I can see the appeal of it once you get into that crazy energetic trance.
Very little musical talent required though, and very little actual performance. Out of the concerts I've been to thus far I have to say these guys were definitely my least favorite, and probably a lot because of their attitude. Or their tone. The message was: peace and love and party. The tone: fuck shit up. Maybe a few years ago that would been just my style, though. Strange how times change...
Otherwise hmm... I've worked. Picked apples and stuff. Kept up my 2x/week jogging routine - the one I started last week. Watched a few movies. Did some stuff. You know.
In site news: apparently I'm getting moved to a new server. Faster, stronger and better everything! Though it's happening tomorrow, so any changes I make today might not be backed up for the move. So I'll just post this, and if it disappears during the transition I have it backed up myself. If you post a comment though, be wary that it might disappear and be like it was never there. Everything should be back to normal on Tuesday.
On the blog I've posted 6 movie reviews, 11 double-edition musicalish posts (pretty much all the good stuff I missed this summer! And some Bo Kaspers), and here's last two weeks.. The one big task that still remains is porting all the poetry I wrote up North, but I'm getting there. Two months down; one to go! Ciao for now.
