Zubby Newsletter – March 19, 2000

Long time no type. I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I last sent out an update to all of you.

Well, St. Patrick’s Day was a wild night of spirits and fun 🙂

4 bars in 5 hours…needless to say, yesterday I was recovering. Today my body’s given in to the old season-changing cold that tends to float around. So, I’m sniffing and coughing while typing this out. What a great visual.

Except for this sniffle, things have been great. The house is kicking ass and I’ve been cooking all manner of meals for myself (I know I keep bringing this up, but compared to last year’s fast food frenzy, it’s a huge change). My roommate’s heading away next weekend to BC, so I’ll have the place to myself. It’ll be a good chance to just chill out and sleep a LOT.

Freelance work has been good and it’ll help me pay for my vacation plans this summer. I’d like to go to Ontario for a few days, but it’ll depend on several factors. I’ll keep you all posted.

I’ve been on a DVD buying blitz after talking about them for a couple hours with my friend Mike from Oshawa. I’m starting to go rabid for classic films as well as my old favorites and of course, tons of animation.

I just finished the first book of a comic called Transmetropolitan. it’s bizarre but impressive. It’s about a journalist who returns to the city after years in self-exile and the way society’s changed in some ways, but stayed the same in way too many others.

My friend Tanya lent me the old Neverhood game by Dreamworks Interactive. It’s a cool claymation puzzle-solving game. It may be several years old, but it’s still great. The sequel, Skull Monkeys is even better.

I’m sort of hitting the old rotation of Crash Test Dummies, Cranberries, Cardigans and They Might Be Giants. Nostalgia can be good 🙂

Until next time, take care.
