OK! Finished up my game contract on Friday, had a nice weekend, then missed Monday and most of this morning feelin sick once again. I really got to nail down wtf this headache/nausea thing is about cause it sucks. Ah well. Tomorrow I'll get my ass down to the unemployment office and see if I can get back on it. Also am barking up some trees looking for more work.
Justin & I finally got served with foreclosure papers, so now we gotta get minor legal advice on how to write back to say 'OK take house but ffs don't try to get 99k out of us on top of that cause we will die'. I'm really unclear on all this. :( But if bankruptcy will get me clear that'd be easy, since right now my life savings is like $2000 and I think it costs something like that to file for bankruptcy anyway. At least my credit card is clear now; I know CC debt sticks with you through bankruptcy. And we gotta figure out how much longer Scott's going to be able to stay at our place before they evict, so he has time to get his stuff out, etc.
So yeah that's a whole lot of fun.
I'm going down to Sarasota for March 17-21 or so and then to Gainesville, though, so that will be fun. Dad's sailing in Sarasota that weekend and I'll drive with him back to Gainesville to hang out with the 'rents for the week. I miss Florida. It's FUCKING SNOWING again here in Georgia.
I finally checked out the 'recobbled cut' of Thief and the Cobbler.. Hm. The Princess is a much cooler character in this incarnation, the lack of songs is nice, I don't mind the lack of Matthew Broderick, and it's WAY better without Phido having a voice. But I'm torn on the Thief. His scenes do kind of drag without any narration. However, the cut scene of the Thief being caught and taken to the square to have his hands cut off, omg wtf gold.
Peter Gabriel has a new disc out but I'm not really feelin' it. :(
Been checking out a little more Doctor Who audio stuff: finally listened to the first two in the Unbound series. These are COMPLETE AUs with randomly cool actors as AU Doctors. The second one, "Sympathy for the Devil" is pretty damn awesome, with David Warner (BTAS's Ra's Al Ghul, Freakazoid's The Lobe) as an AU Third Doctor, and David Tennant in the supporting cast.
Also tried the audiobook "Prisoner of the Daleks", a Tenth Doctor story read brilliantly by Nicholas Briggs, who is one of those guys I have wanted to squeeze since the early 90's because he is so fanboy and adorable. He does most of the Dalek voices in New Who, so the Daleks in this are great of course, and his Tenth DOctor is a damn good impression as well. Fun story. A bit anti-torture too which is fun with current events in the US, all trying to be like BUT BUT LOOK IT'S TOTES NOT A WAR CRIME THE WAY WE DID IT. BESIDES YOU'D TORTURE SOMEBODY TO SAVE UR BABY WOULDN'T YOU WOULDN'T YOU YOU WOULD SO THERE. Seriously, "24" seems to have brain damaged half the US. Whereas every actual seasoned expert on interrogation ever seems to be like 'No, no, no, you get way better intel out of bad cop/good cop. I know this, from my learnings.'
Berserk is on break again but continues to completely rock. They just landed in goddamned Innsmouth.
