Busy times, as always

Not much from me of late, except podcasts, for which some apologies. It’s been hot here, there’s been school holidays, and I’ve been working intermittently on new projects (on which some updates soon).

For the most part we’ve spent the last couple days either working or hiding from the heat, occasionally catching up on Oscar nominees like True Grit, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, and so on, most of which were terrific. We have five of the Best Picture nominees to see, and don’t really want to see several of those, but may anyway.

The kids are back to school this week which may increase overall productivity and balance, but not before we see Sufjan Stevens on Thursday and Amanda Palmer on Friday. There are also, believe it or not, holidays and house repairs to plan. Busy times, as always.

One thought on “Busy times, as always”

  1. Hmmm … we’ve seen TRUE GRIT, THE KING’S SPEECH, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, INCEPTION, and TOY STORY 3 among the nominees. We also mean to see WINTER’S BONE, in part because it’s set fairly close to where we live.

    Of all those, my vote goes to TRUE GRIT, and I won’t be disappointed if THE SOCIAL NETWORK wins. THE KING’S SPEECH was enjoyable, but to me not as good as those first two.

    I did enjoy, I should add, both TOY STORY 3 and INCEPTION, but I don’t think they should get the Oscar (nor do I think they will).
