V-day

Happy Valentine’s, all! May each house bloom with a hundred red roses.

A little busy with work. I play Here Comes the Sun: Acoustically The Beatles when I work, an album of Beatles songs played by acoustic guitars. I think it makes me think faster for that kind of work.

I have to start packing soon for my return to Sydney.

Finished Life of Pi and Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta. Heavy stuff. I’m gonna lay off reading novels for a few days.

Also writing a new short story, “Son of the Sky.” For this kind of work, I play all the Egyptian-sounding tunes I have to generate an atmosphere. So far the most effective one I have is Maksim Mrvica’s Exodus. I’ve got bits of The Mummy sountrack and Prince of Egypt too. And some Rai music.

(Hehe. It’s pretty banal so far.)

  1. Couldn’t stand LIfe of Pi for some reason. I think it was because I had astronomically high expectations; it had been hyped around here as the second-best work after Shakespeare.
