Burned an episode of Hyperdrive onto DVD for celtmanx who had me Tivo it. It was fantastic. "Ed" from Shaun of the Dead was the commander (Nick Frost). I loved it. If I find a box set, I think I'll pick it up.

Listened to a lot of Christopher Young & Marco Beltrami this weekend, but did not get my two new scores yet from BSX. After watching Clerks II (which was really pretty good) I popped in a CD I haven't listened to in years, Smashing Pumpkin's two-disc Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Drank some most fantastic Warsteiner. That made me happy, then again, it almost always does.

I found that under the circumstances of a self-imposed disengagement from real-life, funny things sometimes happen. I went through phases of self-doubt (a damn rare thing for me), exhilaration (another oddity), boredom, restlessness, despair, and joy. Perhaps it was the lack of proper sleep, or the skewed sleep-scheduled. It could also be attributed to the scotch. Either way, a very interesting and rewarding weekend.

I'm so looking forward to seeing him in "Hot Fuzz"!

Sorry you went through such swings of feelings. It is unusual for you. What do you think caused such feelings for you this weekend?

Possibly the disengagement from real-life, lack of proper sleep and/or the scotch. Its a mystery! All weekend I've been living in my own little fantasy world...my fantasy world is very odd.

Have you noticed that Nick Frost looks kinda like a bathed Tony!!!

I'm glad you liked Hyperdrive. See, you should always listen to me when I recommend a show I don't like to watch crap. You should give the League of Gentlemen another chance.

You should ask Michaela about my weekend and get her to compare notes with your weekend.

To what end?

Hmm, I'm trying to decide whose weekend was more awesome - yours because you got to experience the pleasure of listening to sex-ay South African accents, or his because he got the sublime and delectable joy of listening to Teh Marco. *chortle*

Well I know the answer to this one. Sex-ay South African accents notwithstanding, I was able to immerse myself deep into my own thoughts this weekend, and take advantage of examining my own psychosis by playing out my primal desires in a rare opportunity of a convergence of events.

That wasn't was I was referring to. I was making the point that we (Eric and I) were both drained, did nothing, and then went through phases of self-doubt, exhilaration, boredom, restlessness, despair, and joy.

Um, if I listen to Teh Marco today, does it still count as the weekend? And if it does, would that make my weekend better then his?

I have heard such good things about Hyperdrive that now I want to watch it.¹ I think I'll go track down an episode now: I love you, Bittorrent.

And I used my sexiest Teh Marco icon for this comment, seeing that you mentioned him. :)

¹ Am I the only person on the entire planet who didn't find Shaun of the Dead totally hilarious and LOL-worthy? Yes, I think I am. :)

While Shaun of the Dead likely meant many different things to many different people, what made the movie for me was Nick Frost. What an outstanding actor, what an outstanding character! And like galinda822 mentioned above, Hot Fuzz should be the shiznit.
