LJ Confession...

Forgive me... It has been 13 days since my last post....


Things have been crazy at work. There was an industry convention last week, and with most of the office out I had my hands full!


trueseven and I still managed to see a few films. RED EYE, 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, BROTHERS GRIMM, and RIZE. RIZE was interesting -- a documentary about a form of dancing call 'Clowning' and/or 'Krumping'. The dancing scenes were very beautiful, but the filmmaker stops short of really delving into the Group Unconscious phenomenon that would inspire LA urban teens to dance carbon copy moves of African Tribal dances. Although some of these kids have never seen these tribal dances, they subconsciously mimic them. Some of them express feelings like "I didn't learn this, I FEEL this way... and then dance it." Maybe that's a subject of interest to me more than others, but the Social Unconscious has always fascinated me and I would have like to see more about it.

We also saw KINSEY, which we had to watch on my laptop in bed (as our DVD player gave up the ghost this week).

I saw trailers for two good films this week: CAPOTE (starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman) and George Clooney's GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK. Looks like some good stuff coming out soon!


We leave for Dragon Con tomorrow, and I have prepared... nothing!
I have last year’s Magic decks (with dust on them), I have ten plastic ships from Pirates of the Spanish Main, I just might have to dig in the attic for a D&D player’s handbook (and then it will be 2nd edition) and I haven’t even seen the official schedule… I suck. :(

trueseven has the new Batman t-shirt I painted her and a pirate outfit and has been pouring over the schedule making mental notes about things she’s interested in -- so, I'm just a slacker.

Don't get me wrong, I’m still looking forward to going. I can’t wait to see everyone – I’ll be the pudgy red-head wearing movie promo shirts (it's all I own) and the Doctor Who scarf…’s sad really.
