working from home today, listening to the rain tap on the skylights while I take care of a bunch of system admin tasks before the holiday weekend. Should be a nice and quiet today, if all goes well.
A few things on for the weekend – tonight I’m supposed to help the kid finish up principal photography on her short film project for theater/drama class (I get to fill in as one of the villain’s hired muscle since one of them dropped out), and tomorrow I’m hiking a section of the AT in Shenandoah with some friends.
Otherwise, I’ve got some reading to catch up on, and since Amazon’s so good at delivering quick (the closest distribution center is only about five miles from the house), I’m going to make time to watch the low-budget Menahem Golan-produced 1990 Captain America film that never really got a theatrical release (like a lot of license-maintaining Marvel productions at that point in time), but got released to Blu-Ray recently, I’ve never seen it, though I remember when I went to that Star Trek convention in 1989, there was promo all over the place for it. I’m sure it’s pretty cheesy, but it fills a nice hole in my collection of Marvel Comics memorabilia, right next to the Hasselhoff Nick Fury and direct-to-video Man-Thing films.
Anyway, here’s the soundtrack of my morning from Pandora, though #8 eventually inspired me to just let the 80s Hair Metal channel spin, which is what’s been backing my keyboard tapping all morning since:
