Today is so beautiful, though. We're in that three-week window right now when the weather in Pennsylvania has the potential to be perfect. Thinking of blowing off schoolwork and going to Longwood Gardens.
I'm trying to write a mensuration canon with a L'homme Armé cantus firmus as a reaction to Virginia Tech and assorted other events, like the Iraq War. So far, it sounds very depressing.
Writing a blog is useful because I point people to Wikipedia links which end up informing me. I didn't know that Karl Jenkins wrote an Armed Man mass for peace. That's sort of why I'm borrowing L'homme Armé too. Darn. Guess I'll have to check out his work before I go any further.
- I have a terrible desire to see this awful-looking movie from a few years ago called Equilibrium. It's all very Year Zero (humans forced by despotic regime to take drugs that suppress emotions, etc), but Christian Bale playing at kung fu with guns is fun-looking.
- Dog Police. I watched this again and again and again.
- The Revealer: Teenage Holy War. Another good impetus for the L'homme Armé piece.
