Our good friends came over to play games tonight. We got the board game PANDEMIC for Christmas and we spent hours trying to cure the entire planet of four deadly diseases. Hey, it's tough to heal everyone in the world! We laughed and worked together. We suffered through multiple epidemics and outbreaks until we finally found success in our scientific endeavors. Great game that was a real challenge. I highly recommend it.
Last night we went to see AVATAR on the IMAX screen in 3D. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The visuals were unreal, and the CGI characters beame so real to me that in only a few minutes I found myself thinking of them as actors with make-up on. Really really beautiful to look at. Some of the characters were cliche, but I enjoyed the plot and thought it was masterfully done.
My two sons have introduced me to the band MUSE over the break, and I must admit that I think they are extremely talented. Great vocals by the lead, and thoughtful lyrics that are carried off so well. These guys have been touted as one of the best live bands around right now. Yeah, I am 45, but good, well-executed music is fulfilling across any genre. I am thinking of getting theier newest CD off of iTunes.
Just some random discoveries over the past few days. Hope your hoidays are also going well.
