Rather than waste everyone’s time, I’m going to attempt to keep this one short. I was overall very bored by this movie. I don’t know if it was the time of day I started watching it, the fact that I was already a bit tired after watching a movie before it, or maybe the story was as dry as the dessert the film took place, but I had to fight to stay awake to finish it.
I’m willing to the give the movie a second chance someday, but it won’t be anytime soon. I remember reading reports of how this movie bombed in theaters when I thought it’d surely be a winner. I mean c’mon, the title was intriguing: cowboys and aliens? Starring James Bond and Indiana Jones/Han Solo? What’s cooler than that?! (more…)
Around New Years I made a pledge of sorts to make more video blogs for the Indoob! I recorded a “Best of 2011″ within the first week, but I forgot to include some things in that video and planned to do another soon after. But before I could do that, I had a bunch of videos that still hadn’t been edited yet from other projects.
Time passed and I had to keep putting off the video blogs to get my other projects done, feeling guilty for each missed opportunity. But it’s about priorities. I love my blog and making the Indoob fun for all, but I’m trying to get some business done, and running this blog is more of a hobby. Plus, it takes a lot less time to write than produce a video, hence the reason you’re reading this vs watching me tell you.
In other words, I can’t go out and play until I finish my homework.
So look for my Best of 2011 sometime in the future, along with other things I have planned. In the meantime, it’s the written word and maybe some photography which may or may not be my own.
What’s the deal with Groundhog’s day? I mean seriously, who came up with this idea that a groundhog emerges from his home (actually he’s evicted like he owes rent) and determines if winter will be longer or shorter this year based on if he sees his shadow or not?
I haven’t done any research on this holiday, so I’m writing my opinions “blind”, if you will. And I hope that you will, and will humor my questioning. I’m wondering if anyone has really stopped to think about why we do this. Must we abuse animals for our weather musings? (more…)
