seeing your friends bcome adults is fucking terrifying
seeing your friends’ children become adults is fucking terrifying
Note to self. Whenever a promise of work is strung out for too long, it is best to go with the assumption that it is not happening. It’s just a bit of a bummer when this happens with two jobs within days of each other! Ah well.
Oh Dear Lordy. More by the Portsmouth Sinfonia. Priceless!
and a bit more about them:
These are the same folk who did the Also sprach Zarathustra piece that recently passed by on my dashboard…
Wow I sound like a hateful tumblr witch tonight. To counteract that, here are some of my favorite words. Devoid of association or meaning, I just like the way that they look or sound:
- choroid plexusOkay now you add some.

The intense ending is that everybody dies at the end of Desolation of Smaug. “There and Back Again” is just a three hour film reel of Peter Jackson laughing and rolling around on a pile of money.
Warner Brothers, the studio FUNDING the films, I think you mean.
Peter has the reputation of being a very decent guy, in the world of film making. He works extremely hard, so if he’s going to roll around on this ‘pile of money’, then he’s damn well earned the right.
With luck, this studio won’t try to stiff him on the royalties. (Looking at YOU, former “Newline Cinemas”!) And it’s not like the rest of the folk are working on the film for peanuts. Big film costs big money to make. Studio is what gets the big cut. If Peter is wise and has some percentage of that cut, he can ROLL and ROLL and ROLL, and I’ll cheer him all the way.
Yes, I just totally went nerd there, for a moment. But I like what has been done so far, and I’m kinda interested in the bridging part. ;) With luck, that at least won’t be re-spoiled for me. (I’ve tried to avoid remembering the specifics of the Hobbit on purpose.)
