Bark: Röyksopp Forever

Röyksopp's new album turned up from Play this week, in a particularly well-timed move to coincide with the start of Script Frenzy.

If I had to describe it in a word: jaunty. If I had to describe it a horrible, mangled, compound, triple-hyphenated word: HAPPY-HAPPY-JAUNTY-JAUNTY!

I don't know nearly enough about music (unlike some games journalists) to delve into detailed criticism of the album or its individual tracks, but it's had me bounding happily in my chair all week, so it can't be half bad.

Speaking of Script Frenzy, I'm pretty shocked by my progress so far, given that I've written over twenty pages in the last four days. I suspect because it's mainly because I know the game forwards, backwards and sideways, after so many playthroughs, but I think the time I spent 'pre-writing' last week setting out my page and scene plans is really paying off. If I keep going at this rate, I'll be finished well ahead of schedule. As of Sunday, I'll have nine evenings of uninterrupted writing time, which is fantastic. I might even be able to finish up before Fleur gets back from France. I really wasn't expecting it to be quite this easy. But let's not count our poulets just yet... Twenty pages much be a good start, but there's still a long way to go.
