Light Blogging Ahead

I’m doing sound design for the upcoming New Plays Festival at Brown University and we are heading into the last week before tech. Between my day job and working on the shows, I will be pretty busy for the next couple of weeks. Sadly, I missed posting a “Music You May Have Missed” entry on the first. Odds are, I won’t get to it until after the shows are up and running.

On a side note, can you believe we are almost through a full 1/4 of 2009? Someone needs to slow this shit down, yo!

Sorry, a bit punchy from spending most of my day in front of the computer.

Other brief bits and baubles:

“The Road” (Cormac McCarthy): compelling, dark, and really depressing . . . but I totally recommend it. Though you may want to find time when you can devote some quality hours, because it’s an intensely difficult book to put down.

Kings is a rather good new series. I was a bit skeptical, but the pilot was absorbing, well acted, and quite fascinating. You can watch it for free on Hulu, or well, there are all manner of ways to watch it. I haven’t seen past the pilot episode, but when I get time I look forward to seeing where they take the show.

Last night, I watched “Walker – Criterion Collection” (Alex Cox) and recommend it if you enjoy Alex Cox movies like Repo Man, Sid and Nancy, or The Revengers Tragedy. His website offers an interesting look at filmmaking on the fringes of fame and was what got me interested in getting this particular film.

Enough of that – time to do dishes and read The Road and try to get to bed at a decent hour.

Oh, one last thing:

On this day..
