Another post!

Wow, two posts in two weeks. Looks like I'm getting back on track. I was watching the Globes last night, and one of my favourite movies this year won pretty big. Slumdog Millionaire directed by Danny Boyle - who, as a director amazes me with his genre jumping. I'm glad someone actually made a modern "Bollywood" movie that didn't suck. Even the soundtrack was pretty catchy...Anyway, I saw Boyle accepting last night, and felt I needed to caricature him, for obvious reasons.
Also, re-reading everything of Calvin and Hobbes I own and brought with me to L.A., Bill Watterson is genius, as is his strip. For those of you who haven't read it since you were kids and have learned a lot since then, I suggest you read it again. It holds a whole new meaning besides nostalgia. Amazing.

Happy New Year!

So, how awful of a blogger am I? It's been a whole 3 months since I posted. Not for lack of work, just lack of time. I'm currently a story trainee at the House of Mouse - so they've been keeping us super busy, I'm learning an inordinate amount though. Kicks the pants off of school for sure. I just got back from visiting home in good ol' Toronto. Friends, family and the whole nine made it a great break. All to quick, but great nonetheless. Good to be back at work and in the swing of things, even though I've caught a little cold. Hopefully this vile thing won't last long. 2008 was a whirlwind/rollercoaster of a year - graduated, got a job, got another job, moved to a different country where I knew no one etc. Friends got awesome jobs and are all over the place now and met some amazing people. Here's hoping 2009 brings even more awesomeness to the front.

Not really any links to post to, though, if you haven't already you should watch "Slumdog Millionaire", Danny Boyle's latest. Always astounded by his non-genre conforming ways. Also, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" was quite good as well, and finally got around to watching "Real Time" with Jay Baruchel and Randy Quaid (also interesting and good) and About a Boy with Hugh Grant, which was really good.
If you get a chance, check out my friend and co-worker Lissa's blog she has some hilarious and awesome stuff. I've also started reading a couple of hilarious web comics, some of which I've been reading for a while now. Most notably, Kate Beaton and Xkcd.

Happy 2009! Hopefully I won't be waiting another 3 months to post!
