The Walking Dead, walking in Sunshine

No matter how good a piece of music is, and how good a show is, forcing one into the other is not always a good thing.

This week's The Walking Dead ep used the amazingly beautiful music from Sunshine:



It knocked me out of the story faster than anything. Since I was out of it, I headed over to Bear McCreary's music blog to see if he had anything to say about it. I thought maybe he recreated the music himself, though it sounded exactly the same as in Sunshine.

Oddly, he didn't mention it at all. He mentions the scene before and the scene after, but the scene with the song is ignored. I wonder if it's because he disagreed with using someone else's music but he couldn't post negative stuff about the show?

Usually he's good at replying to comments, but none of the comments about that song got a reply.

DIY Litterbox, part one: "That's not a knife!"

At lunchtime I headed off to Target to get the first part: The box.


Why'd you stick me in this box?

Plenty big for her to turn around (she's stiff, needs lots of room). Luckily the plastic is pretty thin, so I figured it'd be easy to cut the opening...

The hot knife I had bought was only for foam. I had hoped it would work anyway, but nope. I could head out to crafting and hobby stores tomorrow and hope to find a heavier one, but I hate shopping and I might get there and they wouldn't even have a better one, so I went to Amazon and ordered a heavy duty one listed as being able to cut plastic. It will arrive Saturday, so I will continue this process then!

Total cost so far:
$18 for the box
$20 for the first cutting tool
$30 for the second ($25 $5 for "overnight" (Saturday) shipping)
Brain cells lost to the smell of burnt plastic? Priceless.
