i'm good!

Oh, you know, stuff...

Gave in to temptation at Newbury Comics yesterday on our excursion to the Providence Place mall. I picked up a used copy of the new Black Tie White Noise box (used only in name...looks like I bought it new). I don't know why everyone hates it, I think it's just great stuff. Good times. I also surrendered to the urge to get the Criterion DVD of Naked Lunch. It's been something like 4 years since I've seen this movie, and Brandon's never seen it, so we should have a good time with that as well.

After getting home we watched The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Yeah, it's as bad as everyone said it was, but I think from watching the extra stuff on the DVD that the producer is more to blame than the poor director, who has apparently fled the country in shame, or something to that effect. And Sean Connery did it because he thought he might be missing the next big thing if he didn't (apparently, he turned down both The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings because he didn't understand them). So there you have that.

Seems like nearly everyone's done with school this semester but me. Oh well. A little less than two weeks and it'll all be over and I'll be on my way to see David Bowie in D.C., so there.
