I've almost bought a house

I've been searching for a house for a while and it hasn't been easy. I'm a picky bastard. But finally after searching for 2,5 years, I found a little place I like to call my home.

While living downtown for 18 years I wanted to keep it that way. It's pretty difficult finding a place especially if you have to pay for it by yourself. I did have to make some concessions but will end up living in monument =).

Still there are some hurdle to be taken. One is, which shouldn't be a big problem, getting the mortgage. Two is having to spend 6 more months in this house where I live now.

Now on to some pictures of my new house.

Okay, so I don't have a life!

Hmmm, this weekend has been a weekend filled with working, well not real work like work work, but more hobby work. Isn't that a terrible word, hobby, when I say or type that to many times I'm afraid that I'll end up at a tree hugging convention somewhere. Okay but that's not what I wanted to write about.

Between my last post and this post I wasn't able to control myself, sit still or watch a movie, I had to make another Black Crowes DVD. Yeah I know it's becoming some sort of compulsion, anyway here are some sample images and sample movies of what the menu does.

The Black Crowes again!

The fun thing about trading bootlegs with others is that once in a while you'll stumble upon some great quality footage that was just laying there. I just so happened that while trading with this really friendly German guy Axel I stumbled on a Master VHS tapes of the Black Crowes he had lying around and was trading. He has send me the VHS tape to capture and make a nice DVD of it. And now I'm about to show you the concept-art.

Besides that I still have to do some work on the audio, it sounds to hollow, and I have to make a nice but short intro movie. Ohh, I also have to pick the music for the menu's.

Rory Gallagher - A Million Miles Away

The normally on high octane running blues rocket called Rory Gallagher shows that he, like no other, can play some mean, sweaty gut-wrenching blues.
