It’s been a very hectic week between work, finishing preparations for a teaching gig in D.C. last week, and trying to complete rough mixes for the band’s preproduction demo that wouldn’t embarrass me in front of our producer. Thankfully, I got to see a lot of the kids this weekend since I was home catching up on some Fedora work. The Marketing Project is kicking up an effort to revamp the web site to appeal to a larger audience (finally!), so I’m trying to get involved in that to the extent I can. For an example of good marketing through a web page, check out the Firefox home page.
Eleya brought home Kung Fu Hustle on DVD, and we watched it last night — what a hoot! This movie was hilarious from start to finish, and a real treat if you like any kind of martial arts movie, from The Matrix to Jackie Chan. It was a feast for the eyes as well as the funny bone. Over the last week we also saw Shaun of the Dead (also hilarious, but in a completely different way) and Gods and Generals (not hilarious, and not bad either). About the latter I have more to write, which I will hopefully do later today or tomorrow as time allows.
