I actually went to the movies this weekend to see Haywire. The movie was OK, but going into it I knew that the director did not like the lead actresses voice and it was dubbed over and it proved distracting to me.
I watched that movie at the movie theater in Valley Ranch. Remember my theory that Valley Ranch and Las Colinas will one day be referred to as “Little India”? Well, that movie theater shows mainly Bollywood movies and on any weeknight, any white, black, or Hispanic is definitely the minority. But it’s actually smart to watch an “American” movie over there because with the empty seats, you have some elbow room.
Ten bucks for a movie ticket? Kids running rampant? People talking during the movies? Seeing lights of cell phones during the movies? No wonder I prefer watching movies at home.
I also watched The Ides of March this weekend. I really didn’t think it was much more than a more dramatized version of Primary Colors (one of my all time favs). I also don’t understand what’s so great about Ryan Gosling, acting or looks. I mean, he wasn’t bad and he’s not ugly, I just don’t get the hype.
When our first born was delivered, I had a playlist of U2 songs randomly played, and I plan on doing the same this time around for when our son is delivered. This time the playlist is full of 195 U2 songs.
Our daughter was born to U2’s version of “Jesus Christ”, and I recently found a YouTube clip of Bono talking about the song from days gone by.
I know it’s no longer the Advent season, but I can’t help but think of it as my son’s due date gets closer and closer.
Our church is about to go from two services, one of which is contemporary and the other traditional, to one contemporary service since the traditional has been dwindling in numbers. I’m looking forward to worshiping with church family I normally wouldn’t be able to see.
60 Minutes was strong to very strong last night. It started with a piece over our current Sec of Defense, then the Commissioner of the NFL, and a a fascinating and well balanced piece over exotic and endangered wildlife native to Africa but are being bred in Texas for hunting reserves, which actually has increased their numbers.
Obama’s 2005 Chrysler 300 is on eBay. I bet the inside smells like cigarettes.
For you fans of Pawn Stars, this would have been an interesting find.
If you are at work and a new employee arrives with a ‘documentary crew’ you can bet the farm you are about to be on a new episode of Undercover Boss. I still think that’s a silly show. You have a boss that will change a few things and make a big difference in a few lives, but overall, thing will just stay the same without any genuine change. I will admit it’s a great PR stunt for the companies involved.
One just does not merely keep up with the Kardashians.
Chuck Norris does not keep up with the Kardashians, they keep up with him.
