so I've been on vacation for the last ten days....didn't really do anything exciting though. I went and saw a couple of movies-'Adaption,' 'Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers'. They were good. I bought myself 3 DVDs-'AI', 'The Royal Tenenbaums', and 'State and Main'. I liked them all-I ended up watching 'The Royal Tenenbaums' like 5 times. I also rented 'The Slums of Beverly Hills,' which was really good. It kind of had the stink of a coming-of-age story, which I ususally dislike, but this was ok.

Tonight I'm having a party and I will be swapping gifts. I got most of my friends neon signs. They should be pleased.

whoever reads this and wants to come let me know. you're welcome to get drunk at my place. just don't puke on my nice white carpet.

I got a new music disk last week-a Sonic Youth record-it's titled "SYR-1." It's from their Sonic Youth Recordings company which is where they release their more experimental stuff. Anyways, I highly recommend this disk. I spent much of Saturday and Sunday sitting around, trying to play in the style. Came up with some cool stuff, I think. I felt like a real musician :-).

buy what inspires me here .

I went to go see Star Trek last night with my father. I understand a lot of the gripes people have with it-it is somewhat of a retelling of past Star Trek episodes/movies. I can see Rick Berman (the current head of the Star Trek legacy) going to the script fast food restaurant and telling the kid at the register, pointing to the sign behind him, that he wants one of those Khan burgers, but hold the mayo. But you know what? I think the story is a good one and worth retelling. The only thing I'm kind of disappointed about is that they were so ham fisted in foreshadowing what was going to happen next. It kind of felt like they were treating the audience as complete idiots who were totally unfamiliar with the conventions of Star Trek.

But to be honest I'm going to go see it again. Maybe next weekend.

oh, saw the two harry potter films. kinda embarassed to say I liked them. also saw 'Eyes Wide Shut'. That's weird, but in a pretty good way.
it's been *way* too long since I made an entry here. I've been busy-I went on vacation (just sat around my house, read books, slept) and launched a site for malt-o-meal that helps them spam more effectively. Important shit for the operation of the world.

About that meeting at St Thomas, the people I met with there say I should just apply to law school right now, that I shouldn't waste my time getting another undergraduate. I think I'm going to ignore that. The peace studies program they have sounds interesting so I'm going to at least dabble in that for a while.
