My tweets of last night;
Thursday seems to be the new Friday here.
Saw college kids mob the liquor aisle.
To-day English music I had to hear.
Switched between The Clash and Cream a while.
I went to The Living Room for coffee and I stopped at Ralph's to get pasta sauce--I've never seen so many college kids out at 1am. The truth is, the bad economy isn't affecting massive portions of the San Diego population--the cost of living in San Diego is one of the highest in the county and all these kids are quite matter-of-factly treating Thursday like Friday. The whole city's a Cadbury Egg.
I kind of wanted to watch a movie last night, but I ended up at The Internet Archive downloading a bunch of public domain music from the 1920s and 1930s, mostly Josephine Baker. Then I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer with dinner, "School Hard", the first episode with Spike and Drusilla. Boy, the whole show changes right there. Spike comes on as a villain a million times more interesting than anything that came before (or after, for that matter), by simply having more going on in his life, character-wise, than being evil and wringing his hands and wanting to kill Buffy. Drusilla's neat, too. Suddenly the villains are people and you want to know more about them. I love how Spike calls Angel an "Uncle Tom".
But Spike's stunt double sure wasn't working yet. The show's fight scenes were already pretty sloppy looking when compared to Dollhouse--Buffy was noticeably feistier and broader in the upper torso when she wasn't facing the camera--but, gods,
Remember, new Venia's Travels to-day.
