I just had to have an emergency viewing of Female Trouble to purge my delicate cinematic sensibilities.
If anyone tries to trick you into watching "Poison Ivy 2: Lily" with promises of a naughty, naked Alyssa Milano, don't believe them. Better yet, run. Even better, make sure that they can never make you such a vile offer ever again. Use fire.
Every once in a while, the old Netflix queue kicks out something like that, something that seemed like a good idea a year or two ago, and that eventually percolated up through the 400-odd items on the list, and when it finally showed up, didn't really seem like such a good idea any more. Fortunately, good ones pop up as well - "The General", with Brendan Gleeson and John Voight, was a great one that showed up this week.
In other news, work is going fine - I'm putting along on a couple little projects for my latest client, and they seem to be taking to the working at home thing pretty well. I had to go in today for a meeting, but I really could have done 90% of the work that I did today remotely. It's good to have face-to-face time in a room with the other developers when you're sort of making up requirements as you go along, but new I've got a couple of pages of features and fixes on this thing, and I reckon I can plug away at it for two extra hours a day if I don't have to drive down there. Plus, no pants.
Driving isn't all that bad, though, when it doesn't suck. I stopped and had myself a Taxi Burger on the way home today, which I haven't had in a while, and some of the ideas for this new game I'm working on came together while I was driving and eating. Most of my game-related stuff seem to get stuck in the "treatment" phase these days, but at least it's good writing practice, and I'll have a library of stuff to work on once I get some spare time to work them out.
Oh, yeah, did I mention that we're moving to Austin, Texas in October? Less rent = less work = more time to work on cool stuff. Yay.(July 31, 2002 11:12 PM)
