Yes, driving home tonight I saw a Christmas tree lit up in the window of a house in Middletown. No lie and no mistaking the fact it was a Christmas tree. Take it down people! Even if it's a fake tree I think you've celebrated enough.
I saw this toy while I was in a waiting room and had to take a picture. Why would Han Solo's head be so big? How would that even work? Is it representative of his ego? Is this toy conceptual or just ill-proportioned? You'd need one hellova hyperdrive to get off a planet with that noggin' on board.
What a cute little scamp! Who wouldn't want to welcome this wonderful little monkey into their life? "A winsome little baby monkey figure so lovable, you'll smile every time you see her". Who doesn't want to smile?! Admit it, without this Monkey Cuddles miniature life is not worth living. Just like the description says, "she's just too cute for words!"
Do yourself a favor and make your give your life meaning—buy Monkey Cuddles.
I just got finished watching Milk and it was a really incredible film. I highly recommend it. The movie was a biography of gay activist Harvey Milk. It was well paced, features terrific performances and was inspiring. So often biographies get bogged down in details instead of helping you to empathize with the character and have a vested interest in their struggle, but that's one way in which this movie succeeds. It did feel a little long at times but it's probably because I was tired.
This movie is so good it may leave you wanting to grow a mustache or if you're a female, seek out a guy with one. No sleepy sheep for this movie.
I just saw a really cute squirrel yesterday but I gotta say—they're all really tweaked out aren't they?! Squirrels are nature's drug addicts. They're always looking around all over and don't stay still. They're digging, looking for nuts (drugs), or just being otherwise sketchy. They start with acorns and before you know it they're snorting walnuts off oak tree bark.
So, next time you see a squirrel, be a friend try to get him some help.
Happy wearin' o' the green to all my Irish friends! I'm your all-American mutt so I'm some percentage of Irish, a bit of this, a dash of that, some native American...etc. I like to pretend I'm more Irish than anything on March 17th but I can't fake the funk on Columbus Day, I'm not remotely Eye-talian.
P.S. The secret is that T.J. O’Pootertoot's famous Pooter Balls are people!
Okay, so this isn't the most exciting drawing in the world, but it's one that I did in my sketchbook during lunch the other day. I'm trying to get into posting artwork here so this is my first step. Ha ha. Get it?!
So last night Keith and I went to see Fleetwood Mac at Mohegan Sun and damn did we have amazing seats! We were front row center–I've never been that close for any show and it's pretty amazing. They sounded great and played a full 2 1/2 hours of their greatest hits. I wish the band would've done a little more audience interaction however, since they mostly ignored us lowly folk standing below their feet. It was a great experience and a great show though.
I've attached some pictures and two reviews from local papers.
Speed Racer was not a very good movie, although I'm sure most people could've surmised that already. I don't know why they made this movie live-action, they should've just made a better looking cartoon if they really insisted on making a Speed Racer movie. The cast was great, but the movie was not. I feel a sleep like a half hour into it and that first half hour was not very entertaining. Therefore I give it 3 out of 4 sheep. That's the scale to determine how fast you'd fall asleep watching it. Wah, wah.
Beware faithful reader, there's a killer among you, right there lurking in every room in your house, ready to strike and you probably had no idea—doors! I ran into one of these bastards in the dark last night and just look what it did to me!
I was watching Battlestar Galactica last night and if you haven't watched it do yourself a favor and watch it. There are only a few episodes left but you can get it on DVD or download it. It's quality sci-fi that uses robots called Cylons as an allegory for bigotry and an exploration of humanity in general. It's really thoughtful and well-written and doesn't have all sorts of weird looking aliens. Who needs them, they just raise the price per episode with makeup and special effects! Anyway the Cylons are bad mo-fos not like your typical comic relief robots, effeminate C-3PO droids, Roombas or what have you. There are two types of Cylons, the scary killer robot variety (as pictured here) and the ones who look like "normal humans" (i.e. supermodels). Not only are the majority of the human looking Cylons hot, they come in multiples! Bonus.
Besides the drama, analogies, deep pondering of humanity, and killer robots, the other great thing about Battlestar Galactica? Frak. They don't say that other four letter f word, in space if you're fleeing from killer robots that you created you say frak. I guess there's just no reason why you can't be sensitive to the young 'uns ears.
All in all it's a frakkin' awesome shot and sadly there are only a few episodes left and I highly recommend it.
Okay, two posts in one day; whaddya gonna do?! I just want to get word out about The Room. It is a cinematic marvel the likes of which the world has never seen. It is truly a gem. A gem wrapped in bad acting, no plot and lots of awkward sex scenes. It's only about $10 on Amazon, splurge and buy it! It's a big cult hit in L.A. and has midnight screenings and the like.
