'tis the season to be jolly...
It's been a bit quiet here lately, in part because I haven't had anything to say, and partly because my monitor died. But my very kind father came by with their old monitor, so now order has been restored.
It's only 10.30 AM, but so far it's been a very nice day for me, safe in the knowledge that I don't have to think about school for a while. So today has been all about listening to some nice music (Sugarbabes' Overload and Machine Head's excellent version of Negative Creep). All this will change in a few minutes when I go down to buy Christmas gifts. I don't wan't to get all Scrooge-y about it, but I absolutely hate being downtown when it's crowded. Humbug!
Later it's the big Christmas Party in my dorm, so hopefully I'll get my shopping done today, so I don't have to go again tomorrow, when my head is trying to kill me with the cunning use of snaps. *Gah*

movie is about done, and will premiere tomorrow.
It turns out that Zach Braff, the star of Scrubs, has his own blog,(via Charlotte) which just made blogs a wee bit nerdier, and that his new movie Garden State is getting great reviews. Knowing the Danish movietheatres, I'll probably have to wait for it to go straight for DVD.
Apart from that, I've got nothing... except, what the hell are Everton doing at number two?

untimely death of of Dimebag Darrell Abbott is a huge tragedy, and that he was one of my favorite guitarplayers of all time. Vulgar Display of Power pretty much changed the way I listened to music, and, maybe just as important, how cool exactly one band could be. How anyone could ever do this will forever be a riddle to me.

False Modesty is the Worst Kind of Vanity.
Local football team, AGF, are not allowed to buy Swedish prettyboy Tobias Grahn, because their economy is, well, non-existant. You could of course argue that they're economy won't get any better if they sell the one player that keeps them from being in the bottom of the league, but I doubt the Danish FA care much for that kind of reasoning.
AGF generally have a bit of trouble finding investors, and honestly I'm not surprised. I imagine investing in AGF is a lot like giving money to a homeless person; you know that they'll just blow it all on something stupid, and in 5 minutes they're broke again and back on the street begging. So, in yet another way, AGF is the big ugly bum of Danish football.
I have decided to create a 'vanity-blog' dedicated to our movie projects, called La Mancha Films. It seems that all our movieprojects have a tendency to go down the drain, much like Terry Gilliams' version of Don Quixote. So I figured that at least I could have a bit of fun with it.
