Somehow, I’d forgotten over the last several weeks just how important music is. I sprained my finger roughhousing with my brothers in September which made playing the cello impossible (well… very difficult) and anything else painful. Of course, school started in September. Marc moved in. There was the production of The Importance of Being Earnest and now National Novel Writing Month. I’ve been busy enough (and with creative things) not to notice what was missing.

It’s been long enough! Today I played piano with some friends and I can’t figure out how I’ve gone two months without really playing.

Ever sincLet the Right One Ine reading this review at Twitch last month, I’ve been eager to see Let the Right One In. Tonight I had the chance to see it, and let me tell you, it’s amazing. I’m not going to write a full review right now. I don’t know how I could really review it without spoiling it and that just wouldn’t do. I will say that I think it should have ended… how do I say this without spoiling? It should have ended right before the phone call near the end.

It seems that coraline.com launched this week. It requires a password — actually, different passwords let you see different videos. They (And by ‘they’ I mean LAIKA, the production company) broadcast the passwords through the ingenious channel of sending them through the actual mail to bloggers. You really should check these out:

And now, I would like to take a moment to invoke John Scalzi. Just to be perverse.

Actually, I really do want to talk about this post about technology and generational gaps, but I let it get too late and I’ll have to save that for another day.

Good night, world. 

Good night, Mr. Scalzi.
