Editing the day away

It's been a long time since I...well, rocked and rolled.  Band hasn't practiced for about a month due to the bass player (it's always the bass player, isn't it?  Well, he's educating himself, so that's good)  I'm on Christmas (there I said it) vacation for two weeks.  I've gotten right into the video editing for my video game console documentary.  It's shot with a home video camera using the built-in microphone, so is far from professional, but I'm having a lot of fun editing it.


On that note, I watched The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, finally, which is a documentary about a guy trying to get recognized for being the best Donkey Kong player in the world.  I hadn't expected to like it, and certainly not to find it disturbing, yet full of pathos and suspense.

Plans have been somewhat inconvenienced by a snow storm.  It's more the sense of not knowing how bad the snow's going to get that has kept my plans to leave the apartment in such pieces, rather than it actually being terribly bad.  I've seen worse.  Food stores are getting low.  I'll need to venture out tomorrow.
