This weekend is over. Good one. Was three days long, and felt like it, y’know? Like, can’t really remember what we ended up doing on Friday, ’cause I don’t think it was much, which meant some relaxing time.
Fired up the turntables today and Riplay/Tate got a chance to beatmatch and play with plugins on virtual turntables using the soundtrack of Jet Grind Radio as their source. Pretty good stuff, frankly.
Played some D&D tonight, too, which was relaxing. Indian food for dinner, but we were giving “white people” hot, so I have to figure out how to say “no, seriously, hot, please” in Hindi.
Also, Granville Island Brewery’s Winter Ale smells like vanilla. Dunno why, but it does. I remember a similar experience with Rickard’s Red after toothpaste, and it tasted almost exactly like those banana candies. Taste buds are weird things, I tell you what.
We finished watching the TV series Jericho a night or two ago, so now there’s just the 6-issue mini-season in print to read through, but I’m not sure I really need to read it. Seems like the show was less about the world falling apart, and more about how government is bad. I prefer something like the UK’s Survivors, where it’s not so much about suddenly getting everything back online and having new governments grasping at whatever power they can manage, and more about the simplicity of interpersonal relationships/civility.
See that series if you ever get a chance, it’s on Netflix in Canada, at least.
