Whoah. Sorry, I have been gone for a bit.  Hey look at that. I know, it’s a hella big picture. Whoever said Asian men are not attractive was wrong. Dead wrong. This poster proves it. A lady-friend of mine is real keen on Andy Lau, and this influenced my first decision in choosing the Filmzilla [...]

I’m sorry, my faithful readers. I have been lax  in the blog production. The days of summer and four blogs a week are gone for the moment. It’s a lame excuse, but it’s the only one I’ve got: I have been ears deep in scholastic endeavors.  So, instead of ignoring you all, I am going [...]

“Sometimes the thing that is the most difficult is the thing that you have to do.” The direct Swedish translation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”(2009) is: “Men Who Hate Women,” or “Man Som Hatar Kvinnor.” I’m told it makes more sense if you follow the whole trilogy. I don’t speak Swedish, and I [...]

“I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees, and misty memories of days gone by. We could never see tomorrow. No one said a word about the sorrow…” Sung by Al Green (1972) and written by Barry and Robin Gibb in 1970. Solara: “I hate it here.” Eli: “Then change it.” Strictly speaking, [...]

-short story by mc m80 [I'm looking for feedback on this one. Or collaboration.] “Abilities are like disabilities.  Sometimes you are born with them, sometimes you develop them, and sometimes they are dumped on you. Joey collects found name tags.  He started at age 8.  Walking to school, he found a Target cashier’s name tag with the [...]

Nicollet Village Video has closed & moved. They actually transformed into Filmzilla. They have every Godzilla, Mothra, Baby Godzilla, King Ghidora, Rodan & Harryhausen film known to man. I just threw that last one in there. If you don’t know who Ray Harryhausen is, you best take your ass to school. Jason and the Argonauts.(1963) [...]

“Show your patriotism by buying a bracelet” This was the actual copy of text from a Facebook advertisement. I saw it yesterday and today. Is it just me, or are advertisers getting more stupid?  Do they think the American audience is that dumb/medicated/not-paying-attention? Oh wait. Mickey Knox, (therefore, I have reason to believe this originated from [...]

I gave in, to the hype. Some of my most trusted technical advisers were saying good things about “Inception.” I felt like I missed an important day of class. I had to see it if I wanted to participate in the discussion. I had to see it, sober-ish.   Not like “Avatar.” Too wasted, too quickly in the theatre.  [...]

If your name starts with “Q,” you better hang on to that shit.  If by some bizarre cosmic coincidence, you acquire the nickname “Q” (esp. if there is no letter “q” in your name [Claudia, you lucky duck,]) you should try to retain that throughout your life also. Q is a bad-ass moniker.    Which leads me [...]

If you’re wondering why I chose this weird non-sequitur layout, I didn’t.  My design-y, web friend did.  It is cool, for this reason: just downsize the window, make it really narrow, then expand it again.  The columns re-arrange themselves, like magic!  Supercool! Really doe, I am looking for specific feedback about this layout.  If you [...]

I am sitting at my desk, nerding out. I was recently informed of a new rule of punctuation. Because of “kerning” (the automatic spacing of letters using their shape/size,)  I learned that the need for two spaces following a period is obsolete.  I found some good, fast articles about it: http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/typespacing/a /onetwospaces.htm http://www.mla.org/style_faq3 Kerning sounds [...]

The sign says: “Honk if you love Jesus, text while driving if you want to meet him.”  Pretty self explanatory, right?  I thought it was funny, and I posted the picture on the web.  A friend of mine (who is a mom) responded: “…I don’t see that talking on the phone hands free is that [...]

I am thinking about starting an advocacy group teaching environmental respect and responsibility in schools.  A lot of  people do teach it to their kids, but traveling the US reveals that not many states bike and recycle the way Minnesotans do.  If eco-consciousness is not leaned in the culture around them, where are kids supposed to learn this?  At [...]

“Excuse me?  ’The customer is always right?’  That’s some entitlement bullshit.  When they say that, it’s always a sure sign that ‘this person is going to be an asshole.’ Every warehouse in America that houses the merchandise from some business that had to file bankruptcy has a box with one of those signs pokin’ out of it.  It’s [...]

I predict a huge boom in the demand for chiropractors.  Within the decade.  It will be linked to the trendy high heels that are the rage in club gear right now.  I am not talking about your average mid 2-3.5 inch heels.  I am talking about five, six or seven inch heels.   There are years [...]

“Any resemblance to any one, thing, place or time, is totally a crazy coincidence.  We are not responsible for your bad behavior.  Side effects may include but are not limited to: sensitivity to bullshit, random mental wanderings, and feelings of light head-trauma.  I am not a licenced medical doctor.” So this is the new writing spot.  I hope we [...]
