The Expendables

i am fully prepared to love this movie.  why?  simply because i have a Y chromosome and that is all you need.


movie review

ok so i just watched a southern korea film called "the good the bad the weird" and i absolutely loved it.  but i just realized its 2:30am and i am way to tired to write this blog.  finish it tomorrow i suppose ya?



a very good cereal

so.. i have perhaps accidentally discovered the best cereal ever made.  its starts with the new weaties cereal called FUEL
now.. i usually eat my cereals with half n half so pour that on there... but oh no!  you ran out of half and half mid way through!  what to do now!?  well there is some heavy whipping cream in the fridge.. lets use that for the last half.  now give that a good stir... and...

WAH BAM!  Best Cereal Ever!

just thought id share my discovery with ya'll.


more random thoughts

this is gonna be a post of random word vomit...

-i feel myself slowly gravitating towards wanting to make cool videos as well as pictures.  i know im a long way off still but i can feel it happening.

-i watched alice in wonderland in 3D today.  which was my first time watching a full length movie in 3D.  herein are my thoughts: i decided that i like 3D.  however, i think its not good enough yet.  its too blurry and distracting a lot of the time.  obviously i dont know why it is the way it is.  perhaps they dont know how to make it any better?  or they do it on purpose for some other reason?  i like the idea.. but its not better than a normal film yet.  and i think anyone whose buying 3D tv's right now are crazy.

-watching that movie made me think about memorizing poems in 5th grade.  weird i know but its relevant i swear.  in 5th grade mr.jacobsen made us memorize a handful of poems as well as other things.  "the jabberwocky" was one such poem.  it was fun to remember lines from the poem as they were said in the movie.  also it was somewhat startling to see this image after watching the film.  i must have stared at this pictured for hours and hours in 5th grade.

-science is cool.  and sometimes lasers make it even more cool.

-id like to live in a house where all the rooms and hallways do this at random intervals.

-how would you like this to land in your back yard?  it happens more often than you would think.  chicken little may not have been as crazy as you thought.

-some cultures are different than ours.  here is proof.

-this is why i love the show "time warp".  a tv show i would have made myself given enough time.  i have so many ideas for this show.  i think about crap like this all the time.  am i weird?  probably.  ive watched this a hundred times.. and i keep watching it.  it will never stop being interesting.

-i think this is great, for reasons not so much having to do with the philosophy said in here but more so to do with the fact they he made a freaking knife on a freaking anvil.  the more i think about it the more awesome it is.

-and this blog would just not be complete unless i made fun of NASA for wasting time and money looking for fictional objects.  what is it this time?  black holes?  no.. but this is almost just as ridiculous.  the oort cloud.  its just not gonna happen guys.  sorry.

there ya go.  thats a good little wrap up of recent events.  

***EDIT***  oops one more thing.  i just want to let you know that i want a "vorpal blade" and i also forgot to mention the coolest part about the movie alice in wonderland.  the jabberwocky has LIGHTNING BREATH!!!  i wish i had lightning breath.... 

the first real trailer for "Predators"



i cant remember if ive ever posted anything from the failblog.org but this video was eye grabbing!

you never know when it will happen

just minding your own business.  doing some online research.  studying this and that.  learning how to use gimp.  (its like a free linux version of photoshop)  Here is my first attempt at a new header for my photo blog dont laugh at me!!

anyway before you know it youve stumbled onto some new music and youve stayed up till 4am bouncing from song to song and artist to artist.  feeling happy and content to be alive.

im so glad people out there share their music with everyone.  like this gal Lauren O'Connell for example.  listen to this song even though its a noisy low quality recording, the song itself it fantastic!  here is one where she plays a banjo with a violin bow!  cool eh?

and here is an original idea called "videosongs" so fun to watch!

heres a fun one

did i say 4am?  i guess its more like 5:00am  =)


a few random things

lets start out with an LHC update. stop youre moaning.. i dont care if youre sick of hearing me talk about it =) so it turns out that the copper stabilizers all need to be upgraded. why?  cuz they think the whole thing will blow up if the turn it on to full power.  how much will this cost? probably a retarded amount. when will they do it? 2 years from now. what will they do till then? NOTHING!!!!!!!!! they will run at half power for the next 2 years then take it off line to do the upgrades. who knows how long it will take to do that. im guessing at least a year.. maybe a couple. so we are a LONG ways away before we find out it was all a big waste of time and money.  oops!  so are we seeing how retarded this all is yet?   good.

posted a new dream in the dream blog.

posted a bunch of new quotes in the quote blog.  (but i really dont think it would be interesting to most of you =)

if any of you are interested in the following: astronomy, anthropology, human history, world history, sociology, physics and especially mythology, then i have a dvd you need to see.  let me know and ill get you a copy.  its amazingly interesting and i doubt any of you have seen anything like it.

whats that?  you want some more science?  well alright then.  did you know that aurora's have been detected on mars' south pole?  yeah interesting, thats what i thought too.  oh and by the way, mars does not have a global magnetic field like earth does.  as in none.  so yes.. thats very interesting...

i know at least most of these are real but i cant be sure they all are.  beautiful though eh?



... is looking good... catch the first look at the new remake here.

speaker heaven

after a rough assembly i realized there was a slight problem.  the sides were somehow too tall!  crap!

but all was well after a short trip to the table saw and some more sanding.  then the gluing and nailing began.

after the cabinets were put together the speaker guts could start to go in.

and here are the final results
welcome to speaker heaven

2 very important things

first.  i found a gray hair in my beard.  and i think its arrival is appropriate.  now to the more important of the two.  i need to bring everyone's attention to the most amazing thing in the universe!  two brothers have created the funniest thing ive ever seen.  a 5 year old mastermind and a 29 year old artist with their powers combined bring you...

read all the episodes first.  then read all the "ask axe cop" and have a wonderful life.
