ActionScript Gone Wild

I had a dream that Sebastian Bach (of Skid Row fame) moved in with my next door neighbors. In the dream, I was really excited to tell the world about it here on my web site, so out of respect for the “dream me,” I’ve decided to tell the world (or at least whoever reads this site) about it anyway. Here’s hoping that in subsequent dreams, Baz and I can belt out the classics together on his deck, whittling away at those hot summer nights with a capella renditions of “Youth Gone Wild” and “Midnight” (“I’m the only thing you need / Upon your love I feed!”) in two-part harmony. I sing a wicked guitar solo.

In non-hair metal news, I’ve been applying myself somewhat dilligently to my ActionScript self-education, the most immediate results of which will be found in a new collaborative site that will be public oh-so-soon. I’m currently plowing through the errata-filled (but otherwise enlightening) Drag Slide Fade: Flash ActionScript for Designers, to be followed by ActionScript for Flash MX: The Definitive Guide. About a year and a half ago, my attempt at the first edition of the latter book only got me about a third of the way through it, so everyone wish me well to keep me motivated this time.
