There is seriously no pattern to this… I’m actually this random

I recall saying once that I was not much of a blogger.  I think what I actually meant to say was that while I may be a bit of a blogger, I was (and am) by no means a consistant blogger.

Tami and I went to see the new Tom Hanks movie the other night… Angels And Demons.  Now, while a lot of people are claiming this to be a sequal to The Da Vinci Code, the book (and the timeline) actually takes place beforehand.  I still haven’t quite figured out if the movie is, though.  They reference a few times his (Professor Landon) past dealings with the Church… now, whether this is hinting at the events of Da Vinci, or just some random past event, I can not say.  The movie as a whole though, I felt was very well done, if not somewhat rushed.  Not rushed in the sense of missing out on the plotline altogether, but just… rushed.  They movied quickly from one point to the next, leaving little time to actually digest what had just happened.  There were a few points in the movie that actually seemed blurred… (more…)

Journey To The Center Of My Pocket Book…

Tuesday July 29, 2008 - Author: NightStorm

Went to see “Journey To The Center Of The Earth” the other night.  Not a bad movie.  They make it out to sound like a remake of the original in the previews, but I have got to tell you, it’s not a remake.  The basic premise to the movie (without spoiling it) is that Brendan Frasers brother goes missing, his nephew (who was a baby when his dad vanished) comes to stay with him for a week, bringing along a collection of personal belongings of his MIA father.  This leads them off on a journey… obviously one to the centre of the Earth.  How is it not a remake?  Well, the MIA brother/father was a Vernian (a believer that the writings of Jules Verne were based on fact, and not science fiction), and set out to find a pathway to this hidden world, in hopes of proving that what he believed was true.  Obviously, if it wasn’t, we wouldn’t have much of a movie, but I’m not going to say much more than this.  Go see it.  See it in 3D, because that’s what the movie was made for, and that’s the best way to enjoy it.

DSL… Less than a week away.  Just a few more days, and we’ll be packing up the vehicle(s) to prepare our trip into Vancouver for DSL ’08, ready for an early morning departure.
Okay, maybe not really early… (more…)

Holy Crap!

DSL ’08 is less than a month away.  I can’t seem to wrap my head around that figure… less than one month.  Are we ready?

Are we ever?

Thanks to some incoming assistance from some friends, a lot of stress has been taken off our shoulders, allowing us to focus on other parts of the event, as well as the dozen or four other projects that all suddenly popped up. (more…)
