What have I been doing recently? Overtime. Lots and lots of overtime. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of overtime. Oh, and being sick. I have a cold. The symptoms aren't bad, but it's making me sluggish and ruining my ability to interact socially.
That last point was kind of a problem earlier today. I got together with evil_jim and henrietta1 for lunch at Gino's and Duck Soup Cinema at the Overture Center. An hour of live entertainment followed by three films by Buster Keaton, accompanied by the Concert Organ. It's pretty fantastic if you happen to like that kind of thing (which I do), but I was sleepy and felt like collapsing through the whole thing.
Other than that, I don't have a lot of news. The one nice thing (the only nice thing) about spending most of my waking hours behind a desk is that it has allowed me to listen to a lot of good audiobooks. Most recently I listened to Stephen Colbert's I Am America (And So Can You!), which I recommend as highly to you as everybody has been. Incidentally, if anybody's looking for free audiobook downloads, LibriVox has public domain works read by volunteers. The quality is a little spotty, but it's a good way to absorb the classics, and they have an unbelievably good version of The King in Yellow.
Anyway, that's pretty much it for this post. I'll be at the Zombie Lurch next Saturday, and I urge all of my friends in Madison to come and support the rights of the living impaired. Details here.
Also, I promised fuzzyinthehead that I'd post some videos of The Hazzards, so here they are, under the cut.
