Day 8 - Busy Busy

I had a few things that I was going to write on today, but none of them were coming together as I had originally thought. And then I saw the following video over on io9 and I knew that it was all I needed for a blogpost. Videos like this are the reason that popular culture is just awesome...



Like I said: awesome!

Have had a reply to one of my tutoring ads today, which is good; have half finished the transfer of files from my uni desktop, going to load up a suitcase on wheels with stuff that I have to take home (even after putting over 5000 sheets of paper in the recycling there is still a ton of stuff to take) and then if I get a chance this evening I'm going to think about a piece of flash fiction that has been running through my mind for a few days.

A question to the writers out there: do you have any strategies for getting stuff written? How do you beat the procrastination demons? I have a few things that I've tried before, but they only seem to work during NaNoWriMo...

Right, back to work - listening to "The Best of Bond... James Bond" - which leaves me with another question: what is your favourite Bond song? Song, bear in mind, not film: I really like "A View To A Kill" by Duran Duran but think the film is pretty dire.

I really like Live and Let Die, but my favorite is either Tomorrow Never Dies (Sheryl Crow) or The World Is Not Enough (Garbage)

Come on now, "Goldfinger" is THE classic Bond song. Can't be beat - period.

Although it is telling that the only Bond songs I currently have in my iPod are from Casino Royale: "The Name's Bond...James Bond" by David Arnold & Nicholas Dodd and "You Know My Name" by Chris Cornell.

@mattiecore:
Tomorrow Never Dies is really cool.

@caffeinated librarian:
Goldfinger is the classic Bond song, I'm just not convinced it's the best! :) (the film on the other hand is pure brilliance from start to finish, every single frame is great)
