I just now finally got around to seeing the fifth Harry Potter movie...

and I gotta say, I wasn't impressed. A lot of changes made for no good reason. The whole thing was incredibly disjointed. They had time for fancy effects shots, but no time for plot exposition? WTF? If I hadn't read the books, I wouldn't have known what the hell was going on most of the time.

The only thing they did right that I could see was Harry himself. I think he got the angry teenager bit that he exhibited in book 5 so much down pretty well.

In other news... I discovered that I have much less self-control than I thought I had.

Yesterday when I was out running errands I had a little more than an hour to waste. So I stopped by a shopping center near where I was at the time. First I went into the Big Lots there... and saw Easter candy half off. So I bought a little of it.

Then I went next door to the guitar store. Where I saw a very nice electric guitar for more than half off. So I bought a little of it.

So now I finally have an electric guitar. Which is rather handy, since I live in a situation where I can't pull out my guitar and start playing at 2 in the morning anymore. But with an electric, all I need is a pair of headphones and I'm the only one who can hear it.

I've been playing around with recording with it, and getting a feel for it. It's obviously a bit different than my acoustic. Got a short version of one of the first songs I ever wrote recorded already. I never could before because it needed electric guitar. :P
