Some fun things I’ve been experiencing lately in no particular order:
* Pyrophone Juggernaut @ the Valley Fiesta – We were just walking through Chinatown when this giant metal ship came to life with music. It was mesmerizing.
* PocketlMusiclatlthelManalBar – Saturday was a whole day of 8-bit computer game music. (Video montage here. That’s me in the white tights against the left wall at about :26.)
* Tomorrow When the War Began: The Movie – My North American people probably won’t know about this one, but hopefully it will be released there sometime. This movie was based on a book that is apparently part of the curriculum at many schools here in Australia. I knew nothing about it, but I have a total soft spot for stories where teens band together to kick some butt. (Band of the Hand, anyone?)
I haven’t enjoyed a movie so much in a long time. We’ve seen a lot of good films lately, but in terms of mindless enjoyment, this one takes the cake. I hate spoilers and don’t want to give much away, but this teaser trailer below does a good job of setting the mood without giving away all the major plot points like the official trailer does.
