So I Saw The Artist...

Time for another series of observations in a post that barely qualifies as a review.

While my movie of last year may have been Drive, it seems like the academy's will be The Artist. After seeing it that's understandable, and luckily it's not bad.

Movie O' 2011: Drive

I don't buy many physical copies of movies these days because why would I. However, after seeing Drive for the second time a few weeks I ago realized that I wanted to own it and at that moment I realized it was my top movie of last year.

Stuff I Did This Week 1/20/2012

I teased that I was up to some stuff and now it's time to reveal one of them. After the rousing success of my Octodad 2 article, I'll be co-writing a video game column with Mr. DJ DeWitt on the premiere Northwestern Univeristy news and entertainment website North by Northwestern. It's called NBN-tendo. Amazing. My posts will be showing up every other week. Check out the first one now.

Uh Oh Politics: The Cycle

Not to spoil too much of the very new and very awesome The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword but towards the end a character makes this curse, "This is not the end. My hate... never perishes. It is born anew in a cycle with no end!" It's fitting that this has come out right in the middle of another presidential election spectacle. One of the most fascinating aspects of growing up fairly aware of politics is year after year slowly understanding just how cyclical the whole thing is. It's one thing to read history books making connections between different eras but it's a whole other experience entirely to watch the darn thing happen again in real-time.

New Year

Kwanzaa unfortunately ends today which must mean that the new year is upon us. Not much to say now but know that as I prepare to fly back to Chicago tomorrow, I'm preparing to go back to the place where I have opportunities to do some pretty cool things. Even now plans are in the works for awesome projects that'll undoubtedly find their way to this blog which, amazingly, is almost a year old and quickly approaching 20,000 page views.

Stay tuned and have happy new year!
