What have I been up to recently? Well last week I bought “Modern Vampires of the City” by Vampire Weekend – listened to it and really enjoyed it. Today I am going to buy “Random Access Memories” by Daft Punk – and I be I’m going to listen to it and just have these insane zeitgeist pleasures. Aside from their single “Get Lucky” with Phatrell Williams I have not heard anything from the robot duo’s long awaited new album.
Last week I bought and read Brian Azzarello’s Wonder Woman Volume 1: Blood which read a lot like a modern-day Game of Thrones but with Greek Mythology. You could draw one-to-one character maps between Game of Thrones and Wonder Woman, and that’s really not a bad thing. After all I love Game of Thrones, so if Azzarello took that and infused it into Wonder Woman’s mythos then I’m fine with that. I ordered Wonder Woman Volume 2: Guts before finishing Blood, which should speak to how much I liked Wonder Woman, and how quick I am to make some purchases.
Other than that though, spending time on these summer courses at Pitt. Public Speaking and Words & Images. You can see on the Nuzlog that I’m obviously spending at least some time playing Pokémon Emerald version – but thanks to Emulation tricks what have been 20+ hours has probably been cut to all of but a quarter of that. Also, expect to see the Art Portfolio section of the site expand sometime soon. One day that’s going to have everything I care to show on display, and it will be magnificent.
