Is is 22nd Feb 2012 already?

Hello. Happy New Year. What have you been up to?

A-huh...yes...really?...Oh...Absolutely....Well, good for you!

Me? Oh, this and that.

Here are some things I have recently liked:

"A Monster Mess" animated cartoon (warning - suitable for family viewing):



Also (I am nuts for this!):

I read this powerful book....I recorded a panpipes version of a Phil Collins song for a top secret project....I discovered how to make chicken kiev (something like this)...I saw great shows at Celtic Connections especially from Julie Fowlis and also from Emir Kusturica's No Smoking Orchestra...I subscribed to Tape Op (at last)...I was given some copies of Filmish by Edward Ross and dug them...caught some excellent offerings at the Glasgow Short Film Festival...made it through about 40 minutes of the new Muppets movie before my three year-old son expressed his desire to go home citing the reason "I am too old for this...".

Well, that'll do for now.
