ramble

sometimes i feel like i'd like a break from the internet (although work stuff would make that difficult). but i'm not talking about going camping or getting away from urban life. just the internet.

maybe i'm just longing for the past. it's hard to believe that when i lived in winnipeg, in 1989 or thereabouts, i didn't even own a computer. i'd never seen a cell phone. the world wide web didn't exist. i didn't own a tv either. even so, i still struggled with distraction back then. i remember calling myself a "browseaholic". i spent a lot of time at libraries and newsstands, flipping through books and magazines.

whee blah

i've been meaning to post something for the past week, at least, but i keep staring at the blank text entry box, watching the cursor blink...

as script frenzy approaches, i am preparing for it by reading the book the way to write radio drama by william ash (thanks to the public library). i'm enjoying it. i need to listen to more radio plays.

i'm still doing the iphone freelance programming thing. i may be doing some android work, too...

i need to draw more.

brief movie recap

i finally watched ginger snaps. LOVED it. and i just found out that the screenwriter was born in halifax! martimes represent, y0.

in other horror movie news, saw daybreakers last night with a rather large crowd. excellent movie. smart vampire science fiction. the only thing i didn't understand was why the vampires didn't sparkle... *ducks*.

misc, python, script frenzy, title of post matches tags

nothing much new here.

i ended my "break" on monday, and am back doing the contract iPhone app programming thing. during my time off i worked on my own projects, just a little. everything seems to take so long, though....

i've been dabbling with python a bit (finally!). i like it. i should blog about it more over on my development blog (i should blog more there, period). i'm still not quite used to the lack of a token (be it a brace or a keyword) to signal the end of a block, though. it kind of makes me feel uneasy, relying on whitespace only!

in other news, i have been roped into volunteering to be toronto co-ML for script frenzy this year. i've never done script frenzy—i've always been too burned out after nanowrimo to do it, even though it's months later (i need a year to recuperate, apparently!). thus, i skipped nano last november for the express purpose of doing script frenzy this year. i've never written a script of any sort before. i hope to do a 30/40s-style adventure radio serial of some sort. perhaps werewolf-related.... anyone else planning on script frenzying this year?
