So, today I saw something cool on TV, and started telling Alan about it. By the time I got to the end, I realized it was an excellent blog post. I’ve noticed that in other situations as well. I’ll start to tell someone about something cool, and realize that I’ve been talking a long time. […]

Today’s my birthday, and so far it’s a great day. The weather is great, I had the world’s largest doughnut, bacon, and OJ for breakfast, and in a little bit I’m going to see Pirates Of The Caribbean again. Life is good.

So, I’ve had a whole bunch of posts rattling around in my head this last week, and rather than pull a ron, I’ll break them up (mostly because I categorize them). I’ll also most this one LAST, so it’s at the top. This makes 7 today.

We rented Shanghai Knights the other night. We didn’t see it in the theater. We saw Shanghai Noon at home too. Sound bad? It wasn’t. I like Jackie Chan. The best part about every movie he’s ever made are the credits. He’s the funniest there. In this movie, Jackie’s father (who guards the Emperor’s Seal […]

On wed the 9th, I had a bad day, so my wife administered a little cinematic therapy and took me to see Pirates Of The Caribbean. That is a GREAT movie. I should say that I like pirate movies in general. I thought Cutthroat Island was a lot of fun. I knew Johnny Depp was […]
