Been a long hard week, and rather exhausting, current music: 'Waiting for the World to Fall' , Jars of Clay. Indeed. However the best thing about recent situations has been a rejuvenation of my prayer life, particularly *had to go rescue Jay from baby barf* current music: 'Will I' from Rent on the bus when I have nothing else to do. Enrollment at work is slowing down a bit so lots of prayer is needed on a daily basis to keep the momentum going, and so far it's working, slowly but divinely. More needed due to people in our lives dealing with hard scary challenges like cancer and more miraculous-but-tiring challenges like twins. current music: 'Good Enough', Evanescence.
Last night we carved our Halloween punkin and watched Charlie Brown, a wonderful new annual tradition. Jack will keep her safe from the Oogie Boogie Man this year!
Planning to see Nightmare in 3D in a couple weeks. Current music: 'Shine', Martin Ansell, Better Off Dead Soundtrack. Was hoping to pick up the new Nightmare soundtrack today, but it's not officially released until Halloween Day, which is sucky. Ariel is here being all smily.
On November 29, I will have a book signing event hosted by Vancouver SIGGRAPH, including a stop-motion history lecture, presentation by Anthony Scott and I get to moderate a panel discussion with other stop-motion vets (Larry Bafia, maybe David Bowes). Current music: 'Liquid', Jars of Clay again. Really looking forward to it. Register here!
Found out this week that Ahmet Zappa is directing the music for the upcoming Fraggle Rock feature film. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. I can just imagine, the Fraggles sing 'Watch out where the Doozers go, don't you eat that yellow snow' and 'Let's make the water turn black' while the Gorgs do a polka rendition of 'Take your clothes off when you dance' and the Trash Heap does 'Cosmic Debris.' That would rock, literally, with Fraggles.
Current music: 'Barque in the Harbor', Great Big Sea while Ariel sings along. My family is wonderful.
