these guys, on either side of me, they’re asleep…

It’s been a busy weekend of productivity! I got rid of the black monoliths of records and replaced them with a lower profile shelving, which made the dining room seem a much better space. We cleared out part of the attic, put books on shelves, brought up rugs, chairs, pillows and all that to create a nice little library! These little things, coupled with the summer bedroom we made with our grand new tent in the backyard, make it seem like a whole new place here!

In other important news, we finally started the Chronicles of Narnia. We didn’t get too far, but it was good to get it started, it’s such a nice version, a pleasing contrast to the overblown spectacles they make these days. Yesterday and today we worked our way through Godfather I and II. Always a pleasure but you know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen them except on these old VHS copies. And though I have some atrocious DVD’s here, Dr. tarrs Torture Dungeon (one day, I will be seen buring it by the roadside… Once I’ve got my hands on the good version, Mansion of Madness) and From Beyond (when on earth is a good DVD coming for that? I mean, VHS master with burned in Korean subtitles… sigh). Anyway, yeah, maybe dvd ain’t perfect but, after 7 years of watching them, video tapes just get harder and harder to accept, especially once they get some years under their belts. Anyway, watching them just made we want to watch them again, but in a situation where I could actually make out some coloration and maybe some details during the dark scenes.

And the we got a little surprise today! The first season of Northern Exposure in the mailbox! Of course, we started it as soon as we finished the Godfather part 2.
