Storm Movie, based on beat poem by Tim Minchin

Yeah, I'm basically just advertising this. But I'm really looking forward to see how it turns out. Damn it, I wish I could attend the premier at London Hilton Metropole, but alas there's no way I could afford going to London twice the same year. Oh well. Anyway, back to advertising it.

I accidently discovered Tim not very long ago. It was love at first song as some might say (yeah, okay so I'm the only one who's said it). His timing and fourth-wall-y expressions mid song are just pure brilliance.
Favorite song, "You grew on me". The growth of that song from medically clever and funny word-puns to a love song that just struck a chord (several, haha) and always gives me goose bumps at 3.44+. It probably means more to me because of my wife to be's conditions, which gives this song extra depth, intentional or not, I don't know. But it's the only song I've ever experienced that makes laugh and teary-eyed, in the same song. This is quite astonishing.

Tim Minchin is just hilarious.. but also like.. really deep.

Now for the trailer for an animated short based on Tim's 9 minute beat poem. Never actually having heard of DC Turner (that rings any bells atleast) I must say I like his style. Clean and simple artwork, with nice textures, kinda reminds me of some certain posters a certain someone made some time ago.. (Me). The movie looks very promising. I think the animation will fit the vocal style of Tim very good. Let's just hope the get the facial expressions spot on as well. Here's hoping for the best, and also that they'll sell some posters, because..
drag out "I" in the key of F♯ and sing the entire line..
..I want a poster...

That was probably only funny to some people.

Clicky clicky for trailer-y goodness.

Also link to the site.. just incase you get really into it. Storm Movie

OMG, I'm Rich!

Thanks to my son I will never have to worry about money again! Apparently the little bastard can shit (pee) money, imagine my surprise when I go to the bathroom to found 20 cents... OMG, Twenty Cents! in his potty.

Just imagine all the things I could buy now like; food, toilet paper... cigarettes, coke.. world peace.. no wait. Never mind the world peace, that's not really my problem. Or well, I suppose one could, if one reeeee'ally wanted to, one could argue that it's as much my problem as anyone else's. But you know what, fuck those people. Oh just imagine all the things I could buy.

Oh, if only it was true. Sadly, it fell in for some reason whilst we were training to use the bathroom and my lovely wife-to-be thought it was too gross to pick it up.

Feeling the desire

..hmm.. that title is probably a bit misleading, intentionally of course.. :) Anyways, the actual story is not as arousing. Ordered a HTC Desire earlier this week... So now I am eagerly waiting for my new phone, which still might take 3-4 weeks to arrive but that's okay, I can wait. I'm also taking the step into adulthood and will be switching to a "real" phone service vendor called Saunalahti, which means I will be getting bills once a months. This might not really seem like a big deal but for years now I relied solely on a so-called prepaid vendor, which is really way more expensive but with the benefits of only paying when I feel like it and having a number that is totally off the grid. Practically I was entirely off the grid, but that's because I chose it not because I couldn't. But as soon as I get my new SIM card I will officially be more of an adult. But not really.

Don't worry dear readers though as I will be making sure you get my new number once I have it, well... not all of you obviously but the ones whom I consider as friends. All three of you definitely though.

"I desire my desire", and yes you can quote me on that. Just like I will be quoting Stein on "Some people have crabs, I have piranhas" when playing Island of Eternity.

Also here's a picture of the HTC Desire, because you're too lazy to google it anyway.

"Some people have crabs, I have piranhas". There, now I quoted you. Muahahaha.

Stay tuned for updates on previous posts.


And we're back...

I ♥ Herbs
Of all the things I planted, some started growing. As you saw. Then most of the fuckers got moldy and died. I tried re-planting some in better growing conditions, then I went an got wasted in Tampere and forgot to water all of them. They died too. So as of right now the only things still alive are Basil the I, Thyme the II and random gross-looking Garlic that I planted a week ago that's growing nicely.

A Trip Down Nostalgia Avenue
I still haven't finished the the Command & Conquer game I started, the ass-molestation I got last time left a sore feeling in my behind (nice metaphor isn't it) so I really have no desire (haha) to play it anytime soon. But that's okay I might still and then I'll be sure to post an update or something.

I want you to check out my I ♥ Herbs post at peppar blog, because I fails to display the right symbol and I suspect it could be resolved with UTF-8 encoding which I suspect you don't have, but I could also be wrong, which is why two rows up I used html shorthand syntax instead. Also, wasn't the link pretty funny in a sort of dry "ha-h..." -way.

May the spooning be with you!
