Misty Mountain

Another foggy and damp day. It wasn't too bad this morning, but when I glanced up from my work this afternoon I saw that the world outside had vanished into the swirling mists and I could barely see across the street. It certainly made for another eerie walk in the woods this evening.

Last night's movie was 'Kick Ass' - a hyper violent comedy that effectively answered the question 'why doesn't anybody get dressed up as a superhero and go and fight crime in real life'. It shamelessly name checks and pays homage to everything from John Woo to Batman, with a touch of Kill Bill for good measure. Enormous fun all round, I think.

In games news, as mentioned yesterday I have mostly been playing 'Disc Drivin' which it seems is based on a board game called 'Pitch Car which involves flicking pucks around a track. I've finally got the hang of the controls thanks to some pointers tracked down by Jochta over on Twitter. Quite why the developers couldn't have included a page of instructions in the game is a mystery to me, but there you go. There's a free ad supported version, so it's worth a try to see if it appeals.
