If I hear Iio’s “Rapture” in any sort of form, remixed or otherwise, on the radio I’m going to flip out. Damnit people! That song is two years old, get over it. It’s not even that good. Fuck it, I’m going to bed. Lots of stuff to do tomorrow (today).
Besides the movie, I’ve been just doing some laundry and some homework. I’ve got two comic book pages to finish by Monday. I’ve also got to order my photo supplies and pay my rent. Tomorrow we’re planning on going to church, it being Easter and all. Afterwards Lauren’s planned a little picnic in the park which should be fun.
Thats about it. Later.
Well, it’s Saturday. I would have updated sooner, but there wasn’t really much going on. Last night however, we check out “Death to Smoochy” a hilarious and dark comedy starting Robin Williams and Edward Norton, Directed by Danny DeVito. I had been looking forward to this one for about a month and I wasn’t let down. The basic story line is that a kids TV show host, Rainbow Randolph (Williams), is fired for taking bribes and is replaced by a more ethically centered character (Norton) named Smoochy the Rhino. Randolph takes it rather personally and tries to get back at Smoochy. There’s a decent supporting cast that includes Danny DaVito, Jon Stewart and Harvey Fierstein. The supporting cast was probably the one minor drawbacks that I could see. Their roll was rather uninspired and lack-luster. It’s sad that no one writes decent rolls for Jon Stewart, I don’t think he’s been funny in a movie yet. He’s very funny on the Daily Show, but unfortunatly no here. All in all, this is a dark little comedy that had me laughing outright. The “Step-Dad Song” was definatly a highlight. The upsides of this one definatly outweigh any downsides. It was a little thick on the profanities and the supporting cast was a little weak, but it was definatly worth the trip. Go see it.

My brain hurts. 9am History classes tend to do that to you. But now I’m home and I think it’s about time for some food and Counter-Strike.
I was also frightened to learn that B&H, my most trusted photo supplier, is closed until the end of passover. I guess they’re Jewish. That kinda of sucks for me since I needed supplies by Monday. However, I’ve talked to my professor (who was also waiting on supplies for B&H) and he said just to buy the absolute bare nessesities in town and that we’d be able to get by until B&H reopened and shipped our orders. This semester will be a biggie too. Atleast $500-$600 dollars worth, and that’s just to get started. There’s no size requirement for our prints in this class but if they’re larger than 16×20 we don’t have to window matte them later on. So, of course I want to avoid matting things, so I’ll be ordering very large paper. Which, while being expensive, wouldn’t be as expensive as matting 30 prints durring finals. So, it’s a trade off.
Oh well. Back to the grind.
Smegs. This semester will suck. A lot. But I’ve got my girl and my friends to help me through it. At the very least, I’ve got a lot of studying to do. My “History of 20th Century Photography” is really going to kick my ass. Advanced Color should be fun, and Intro to Sequential Art will be interesting to say the least. I’ve never given “real comics” a try. I guess we’ll see how it comes out. Ok, sleepy time. I didn’t get any sleep last night, so now I’m having to make up for it.
