  After I spent quite a bit of time ripping the new terminator last week a very close friend asked me if I was “angry” and if everything “was okay.”  One comment after the review on here was that I “love to hate things.”  Well, I love to love things too, and for an anti-terminator to balance this hate I only had to wait one week.  On Saturday night I saw Up in 3D at the Landmark.  The interesting thing…

WTF, southwest?

WTF, southwest?

My friend in Berlin gave me the not-so-good word today that he’ll have another visitor during the time we’d tentatively planned to have me visit in August.  As I’m in school right now, my schedule isn’t very flexible, so for now, going to visit him is totally off the plate, at least until next August.  So, I figured I’d turn this great tragedy of our time into a chance to visit Byron and check out his new place in Seattle (and…

killing california

killing california

California can’t make up its mind.  They scare away conservatives (i.e. big business) by ratcheting up taxes and regulations, and then scare away gays by telling them (unlike in other states) that they aren’t welcome here.  Pretty soon there won’t be anybody left… there already aren’t enough left to keep our state from going into the red (fiscally, not politically – although that may happen if enough things like this keep happening). The ruling today was an obvious short term…

just kill him already!

just kill him already!

On Saturday I dragged Sam to watch Terminator Salvation.  I always feel bad when I campaign (although weakly) to see a film and then it turns out badly.  But wait, I just gave you a spoiler (it sucks!).  There are more spoilers below.   below here       yes..down here…     okay, now that you’ve been sufficiently warned, I’ll commence with the McGeneric movie bashing.  I have no doubt that McG tried his hardest to return the Terminator…

Mega Force!

Mega Force!

When I was a kid, I caught this movie on tv.  Since the beginning of time whenever a group of friends and I were planning to rent a movie I tell them “why don’t we rent MegaForce?!”  The idea is summarily dismissed either before or after everyone asks me what the hell Mega Force is.  Well, thanks to youtube, I can now show you what y’all were missing out on… Just like other “fringe” pop culture things I’ve mentioned on…

from the mountain top

  I was digging through my phone for something else today and found this photo that I snapped before my phone went dead – and for some reason didn’t see when I was copying the photos over for my original blog post about the adventure.   That little patch of rocky white on the other side of the road a little bit left of center in the upper half is Stoney Point.  Just for comparison’s sake here is a photo of…

sandwich man patrons get sandwiched

sandwich man patrons get sandwiched

Well not exactly, the place closes at 3pm I think and this happened after that, so luckily nobody was there.  However, Sandwich Man, which I eat at 3 days a week (including the day this happened) had a car come sailing through the front window like a reenactment of SpiderMan 2. Video of the wreckage here.

Art Walk May 2009

Art Walk May 2009

After work Thursday I boarded the familiar red line to Pershing Square to meet Sam and check out the art walk for the first time in five months.  Some things changed, some things stayed the same. We checked out the Hive first as that place usually has the best work.  Here are some of the standouts: Tom Beirce by Lance Richlin. Damnation by Janae Corrado. Unknown artist at the Hive. Next we walked over to Infusion Gallery. They had some…

God WAS british all along

God WAS british all along

The lord, creator of all things big and small, has revealed himself.  His name?  John Sutherland. Your move, Creationist Museum……  and anyone who believes in God because life can’t “spontaneously occur.”  Technically shouldn’t they now worship John, since their belief is that only god can spontaneously make life (here defined as RNA)?  Only god can create life.  John creates life.  John = God. Of course all of this hasn’t been absolutely verifed yet, but then again neither was God and…
