I don’t know how much time I’ll get to blog this week, with working all week and preparing for the trip. So I thought I’d tackle some now. Let’s talk about people I don’t really like.
John Kerry. He’s kicking off some campaign at his birthplace, which happens to be RIGHT BESIDE GEOFF’S WORK! What disappoints Geoff and I is it’ll be while we’re in Scotland. I would have LOVED to go and show my support for Bush. Carry a sign or something. This would have been my only chance. I doubt seriously he’d return so close to me before the election.
Michael Moore. Some guy named Michael Wilson is putting out a documentary called Michael Moore Hates America. I don’t think I’d watch this movie, despite how I feel about Mr. Moore. And frankly I have serious doubts it would be a project done well. I’m all for a movie that would be the antithesis to Michael Moore’s movies, but I’d want it to be a well thought out project, and not the propaganda that Moore puts out.
So I’d have to say the previews we saw yesterday ranked high in crap. Each trailer was worse than the one before. First up was an Icon Production (which I will support because Icon is Mel Gibson’s company, and I had a friend who worked for Icon) called Paparazzi. I’m guessing you’ll be able to piece together what it’s about. A little cheesy, but this was the most promising. Second was Resident Evil: Apocalypse. This looked so wretched, but then maybe I just don’t get it. I’m not a big fan of video games becoming movies, and this plot was so laughable. But again there was the worst to come. Lastly, Alien Vs. Predator. The two villains do battle with innocent humans caught in between. I was just so thankful for I, Robot to start. Ah, Hollywood. What would we do without you?
Everyone I know is busy traveling. Colin, Dawn and Dylan took a trip to Banff a weeks ago. The Armstrongs have plans for Victoria, Lisa, Chad & the girls are heading to Vancouver next week, and my mom is going to visit her best friend Heather next week. Crazy! I guess there’s something about July. I’m looking forward to taking a break from travel after Glasgow. I was hoping to do Edmonton next spring, but we’ll see what time & money affords. Geoff has a conference in Providence, Rhode Island in April, and I’d like to go there.
That’s all for now. I’ll close with a quote from one of my favorite shows Titus. (Hey Fox- Put Titus On DVD!)
Christopher Titus: The only way to tell my Dad something is to write it on a note, and tie it to a brick, and throw it through a window. Of course, now Dad’s armed with a brick.
