Why hello there!

My home internet is down and is staying down due to a Jobian series of technical mishaps, so I'll have to resign myself to updating this at work and the library. Jeez Louise!

So what's up with me? Just played a part in a video shoot-It's visual accompaniment to a live musical performance; a cellist will play an original composition while this silent film plays behind him. I play a member of a peaceful cult gone bad.

Coming soon! Some thoughts on some books (God Knows by Joseph Heller and War For The Oaks by Emma Bull) and movies (Alphaville, Avalon, Tromeo and Juliet). Edit: some of these promises were broken. Not for the first time, not for the last.

Please Stand By

I want to post about many things, but my home internet is down... got a bad wire in the wall according to Bellsouth's tech, so I'll be switching to dial-up for a while, which strikes me as a positive step back... I waste too much time on the net because it's so darn easy with DSL. Dial-up is too annoying to suck me in, and it costs less, and since this is supposed to be the year of saving money... (not doing well at all on that front.)

My phone line went down Saturday, the same day I paid my bill (well before the due date, BTW.) I've been cut off for nonpayment before, but this is the first time I ever got cut off for payment. So until this jive is fixed my updates will be a bit lacking. Anyway, saw a bodaceous cabaret performance this weekend; hope to post more about that soon. And last night as I was preparing for a shower I noticed that I can see my torso bone structure better than I have since college. The no-chocolate diet is finally paying off! It's wierd how weeks go by with no hint of a change and then suddenly there's a noticable difference. Still a good ways to go though.
