The Mountain Goats – Woke Up New music video

Celebrate! For the new Mountain Goats album ‘Get Lonely’ will be released next week, but in the meantime, all should check out this new totally awesome music video directed by Rian Johnson, who recently directed the film “Brick” which is one of the many films that played at this years film festival, but missed cause I’m a broke ass student… enjoy!

Aphex Twin and Windows

Being affixed to the wonders of Wikipedia, I came across a page on Aphex Twin and in particular, the Windowlicker single and discovered that the end of the second track, if played and viewed through a spectrogram, you can see the face of Aphex Twin himself. It’s a crazy image that plays for just 10 seconds, but it’s really cool. To see a sample of it, this guy’s page here has all the details.

Meanwhile, deadlines loom and pass over at school as I’ve yet to turn over a script for a short film to be made at the end of the year. It’s like the wonderful life of a real writer as people start demanding to see pages and results and you do your best to justify the delay.

Thusfar, I’ve been able to come up with a multitude of ideas and storylines and characters etc… but have yet to settle on one that I actually like and am willing to further develop. So this weekend I’m setting myself a goal to get at least one script done by Sunday, else… screw it, else nothing, I gotta write something.

Oh yeah, and a minor happy thing, Microsoft have finally released the hotfix for Windows being unable to hibernate due to “insufficient system resources exist to complete the API”. Been waiting almost a year for the bastard and you can finally download it here.
