on the edge of the abyss

Well now, it’s been almost a month since I posted here, which is unusual, even for me.

Here is what I’ve been listening to:

The soundtrack from the top-down shooter game, Hotline Miami. Haven’t played the game but I like the sounds. All the artists were found on bandcamp.org and most of them also have EPs of stuff going for very cheap monies. Some of it reminds me a bit of the sounds Jan Hammer put to the TV show, Miami Vice, and some sounds a little like 80s era Vangellis. Probably the same synths used.

Mostly it’s been a pretty damn cold december here. Colder than one would prefer it. I have a cold: a sore throat. I had to actually go out and do work stuff yesterday so, because of the cold, ended up crashing out early last night. And then waking up early this morning. I was lying restlessly in bed thinking I’ve been here for a mini-generation now. The girls (because at that school it was only girls) I taught back in 2005 would now be finishing the 2nd year of university. I don’t feel like I’ve changed much at all.

Today is election day in s.korea. I hope the scary lady doesn’t get in.
