Weekend Sights, Sounds and Games!

Here's what I'm listening to and watching this weekend!

  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me - It's been awhile since I saw this last. HBO Z showed it after Carnivale last night (making it a double-shot of Michael J. Anderson!!). Very creepy flick detailing the final days of Laura Palmer before her murder and the perfect lead-in the the Twin Peaks TV series. Directed by the man himself, David Lynch, and perfectly typical of him, with his flourishes displayed heavy. If you like Lynch, then this is pure nirvana. It even had moments that reminded me of my favorite film of Lynch's, Eraserhead. But that's another story...
  • Bee Gees - Their Greatest Hits: The Record - To look back on the Bee Gess is to examine major popular music trends of the 1960's through the new millenium. No other group was able to ride three separate eras of success in pop music like the Bee Gees did. When you experience this superb two-CD best of set, you get to look at that whole expanse...and realize just how important they were to popular culture as well as music.
  • The Office (NBC): Last Thursday, NBC reran 4 episodes of this awesome comedy series. this has to be one of the best TV series...I love it. Based upon a popular, if short run, British TV series of the same name, it is totally Americanized, but is now just starting to take different paths from it's namesake from across the ocean. Exciting stuff!
  • World of Warcraft - Of course. When am I not playing this game? This weekend, I will be continuing to level Neq the Druid (level 47). I hope to level her to 300 in fishing in preparation for Sunday's Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Tournament. Last Sunday, she came within 5 fish of winning the grand prize! woot!
