Thanksgiving 2009

Thanksgiving 2009, made tons of food, took pictures of the cats, laid around a bit, watched Star Trek 11, then went to see The Boondock Saints II (which was as awesome as the first one). A good day, overall.

Saints Preserve Us

Sony Pictures must really be tightening it's belts, because they are only slow releasing "The Boondock Saints II" movie every couple weeks. I keep watching the web for news on this, and apparently it will finally be in the Central Florida area on Wednesday, November 25th, in the following cities:
  • Aventura

  • Miami Beach

  • North Ft. Myers

  • Orange Park

  • Orlando

  • Sarasota

  • Sunrise

  • Tallahassee

  • Tampa

  • Vero Beach

  • West Melbourne

  • Winter Park

I'm anxious to see what the good Irish boys have been up to. ;-)


I Am A Murderer

I killed my son's fish. And snail. I feel horrible. :-(

Updated Sunday night: Okay, I made good and he now has a new fish, which is bigger and stronger and hopefully lasts. May need a new tank though. :-P

MOVIE: 2012

I have to admit that this was a very fun movie to watch. The waaaaaaay over-the-top disaster scenarios (which is all there really is in the movie, as the story is pretty bland) were funny and enjoyable. The outcome was completely predictable, the side-plots likewise nothing to shock you with. Woody Harrelson plays another nutjob (seems to be his forte) but isn't searching for Twinkies this time. So all in all, go for the visual effects, and put aside any expectation for a memorable story.

MOVIE: The Box

Wow. What a horrific waste of my time this movie was. Badly directly, horribly acted, and a potentially cool story was massacred by whomever adapted it for the screenplay. Avoid this movie like the plague. It's a complete waste of money!


DARPA Wants To Give You $40k

Check it out, fellow geeks and those who think they're social networking experts... here. Just find 10 red weather balloons on December 5, 2009.

The winner will "almost certainly" be a group of people, unless someone is slick enough to get people to reveal locations of these balloons without those people wanting part of the prize (the balloons will be at random, static locations in the continental United States).
