Contractor

Not much going on lately, unfortunately. I’ve been sick with the flu.

Bought Mark of the Ninja on Steam. It’s a pretty cool game, which you can play in different ways, like the Hitman series. I’ve been playing it the stealthy way, trying not to raise any alarms and avoiding any kills, but I realized you get some sort of bonuses for kills too, so I might just change my playing style.

I’ve been practicing some Lamb of God songs! Reclamation, Blacken the Cursed Sun, Dead Seeds, Contractor… It’s been fun, especially when playing with an amp and somewhat cranking the volume, but I can’t really play once the kids are asleep, so I’ve been thinking about starting to drag Axe-FX back and forth between home and the rehearsal room…

Netflixing

So, I got Netflix. At least the one-month free trial. It’s been okay thus far, especially for watching stand-up and cartoons for the kids, but I’m a bit disappointed with the lack of selection. I’d like more TV shows, so I might be better off getting HBO Nordic, once it’s available.

Joggings

I gotta start jogging more regularly. Just reviewed my activity on RunKeeper and noticed I’ve been out running for only about four times a month, which is obviously less than my goal of running twice or even three times a week. On Sunday I ran about 5km, which was awesome, but I ran too fast tiring myself, so I wasn’t able to do 10km, which was my original intention.

Last year I was running about 50-60km a month, and now it’s down to 10-20km. Argh.

Star Wars

We’ve been watching Star Wars movies with the wife the last couple of nights. We’re going by episode order and I can’t say I’m exactly thrilled with the first two. There are a few redeeming moments, but CGI doesn’t age well. As a minor Star Wars nerd I am loving the lore, though. My nerddom is mostly confined to the comics and the video games. I’ve also seen a few independent movies, which have been impressive, but I cant rememeber their names.

I still don’t like red wine.

Gangnam Style

Rough one and a half weeks behind me, and the same is up ahead. Feels like there ain’t much spare time, although it’s not true.

Weekend was fun. Me and the kids danced to Gangnam Style, but when I put the music video on TV they seemed to be mesmerized by the dance moves. They sat and stared as I replayed the music video four times.. Weird.

Faster Than Light

I’ve been playing FTL. I like it, but I get really mad playing when after playing for two hours, my ship just gets pummeled by the Rebel Flagship. Yesterday, I managed to destroy it twice, but I think you have to destroy it thrice to beat the game..? Anyway, I wish there was a game like it, but longer and more RPG elements for the crew members, maybe? I dunno. I think I’m through with it for a while, because I hate having my progress just wiped out. I love games where you can progress, I guess.
