Why is it that every other day my coffee kind of sucks? I pretty much get the same thing every day. I’ve switched from a Venti sugar-free vanilla coffee to a grande sugar-free vanilla americano. But it seems like sometimes they forget the syrup or something. They never forget to charge me, they always remember that. But after I take a few sips I realize that it’s just plain, but by that time I’m already on the elevator.
Sneaky bastards they are.
I’ve seen Spiderman… it kind of sucked. I’ve seen Pirates 3… twas ‘aight. But the movie that I told myself not to get that excited for finally came out and it’s easily the best movie I’ve seen all summer and that includes the ones I’ve rented too. It definitely lives up to the bar set by the director’s first movie ‘the 40 year old virgin’. Obviously if you’re a fan of his TV series’ ‘Undeclared’ or ‘Freaks and Geeks’ you will love this movie. But I’m recommending it to anyone else… everyone else!
Geeks of Doom review
Laurel and I were just watching “One Crazy Summer” the other day (which she may or may not have seen, which is a tragedy) and I was thinking about what happened to all the people that were in those movies, besides Cusack and Moore. I mean Booger eeked out a pretty good career. one of them was a Murray brother, and the hot chick was on Dallas for a while. Then today I read a story about the director coming back to make another movie. He’s calling the movie “something that will compliment “Dead” and “Summer,” “. This is great news… I hope he can get Cusack to be in it!
Holland back for another “One”
So I was looking through the Wikipedia entry for “Fraggle Rock” (which is suprisingly thorough) and I read this quote…
In September 2005, it was announced that The Jim Henson Company had begun work on Fraggle Rock: The Movie, with the aim of a release in 2009. The story is said to involve the original Fraggle characters. As of October 2006 this is still current and the BBC reports that the film will be set in the human world with Frank Zappa’s son at the helm.  As of October 20, 2006; according to Darkhorizons.com: “Henson’s company has hired executive producer Ahmet Zappa (“The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless”) to write a treatment for the film which will be a full-length live-action musical fantasy starring the underground dwellers who venture out into the human world. Henson Co. co-topper Lisa Henson is producing, whilst Brian Henson will exec produce.”
Ok so the Ahmet Zappa part scares me a little, but if the Hensons are executive producers I’m sure it will be fine. 80’s revival worked for the comic industry, lets take it to the theaters.
“Suddenly I See” by KT Tunstall
Its such a good song, not sure where I heard it. I think it was from an episode of “The Loop” but it’s been used in a couple of other places. I think it might have been on “Greys Anatomy” the other day (which I was watching because of Laurel). Anyhow, its a really fun light song. I think it’ll be my summer anthem… or at least until I get tired of it.
The rest of the album is pretty good too!
Every once in a while I try to argue with people. These people are usually much more adept at arguing than me and I usually just give up. They think they’ve won, but in reality they just care more about their stupid problem than I do.
Vegans seem to love to talk about being vegan. (I’m a 5th level vegan, I dont eat anything that casts a shadow) I have no problem with a person being against the inhumane treatment of animals. Dog and Cats especially. I do think that some of the meat industry disgusting and there should be tighter regulations (thank you Fast Food Nation). But here’s the problem, we eat meat. Say… 90% of Americans are omnivores, off the top of my head thats about 270ish million people. How can you provide meat for that amount of people and not have some kind of large scale meat industry that keeps the meat movin? We’re really in a no win situation here, either eat, or be nice to the cows/chickens/etc.
What got me started on this is that I just read an article about a little girl (6weeks) who died because her parents were vegan and they starved her to death. Hopefully they will get some deserved punishment. Here’s a link to an Op-Ed piece in the New Your Times that says the rest of what I want to say… because I’m tired of arguing about it.
My favorite line of the article:
There are no vegan societies for a simple reason: a vegan diet is not adequate in the long run.
