It was an absolutely perfect example of the reasons I enjoy movies and why I especially love sharing them with her. How Pixar consistently manages to put out films of this quality is beyond me. To follow up Wall-E, which was arguably the best animated film I’ve ever seen, with a film that in some very important ways surpasses it illustrates the sort of phenomenal product they’re putting out.
I wasn’t always a geek. I didn’t know about Lord of the Rings, I wasn’t familiar with Star Wars, I didn’t like C.S. Friedman and way back in high school I would have never dreamed about reading Lord of the Rings. All that changed one day in a single moment inside a middle-of-no-where high school library in a single blink of an eye.
On April 15th, 2009 I began my four day journey on a GRAYHOUND BUS from Florida, US, to Alberta, Canada. Here are the memories and scars from day 2 of that journey. Please shield the eyes of children and batten down the hatches before reading!
When it comes to computers, there are pink components, and there are good components, but there are scant few good pink components.

Ever wonder what it would be like if you travelled across one entire country to another…on a bus? Wonder no more! Let me, Mel, open up your senses to the sweet smell of bus bathrooms and stinkey cheese feet as I regale you with tales of my travels on a bus from Florida, U.S.A, to Alberta, Canada.
This film got 95% on Rottentomatoes.com and gets the sort of praise normally reserved for foreign language, anti-American films at Cannes. Was it really that good? Was this film worth the insane amount of hype?
Every day on my trip to work I pass by a carwash right next to the gas station I usually hit. Out in front, it has one of those “insert the letters” marquee type of signs, allowing the message to be changed
Ok, so like every good geek, I set out this last week to see the new X-Men origins: Wolverine. Reviews in the geek community tend to vary from “utter garbage” to despicable. I’m pretty bored with the wife out of town and decided that even if it’s bad, it’s a good way to waste 2 hours. I went in with no expectations other than Hugh Jackman looking cool.
