Been a while [Mar. 13th, 2010|01:42 pm]
Shit, I haven't posted here since November? I guess I haven't had anything to say, tax is a bitch, slugging through classes still.

Here are the movies I want to see this year: (going to see alice today)

Clash of the Titans trailer

Iron Man 2 trailer
The man in the iron suit is back for another round of cool-fest! Much of the plot for the sequel has been kept under wraps. So far we've heard that it will be set six months after the events of the first film. Tony Stark is out in the open, having revealed his identity as the Iron Man. The public attention has taken its toll on him.

The Expendables trailer

Shrek Forever After trailer

The A-Team trailer

Toy Story 3 trailer

The Last Airbender trailer
The Last Airbender is the real life adaptation of the Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series. The movie revolves around 10-year-old Aang, a successor to a long line of Avatars – a breed of superhuman with the power to manipulate all four elements. When the evil Fire Nation threatens to destroy the Water, Earth and Air nations, Aang must fight to stop them from enslaving the people from the nations.

The Karate/KungFu? Kid trailer
The remake of the ever-popular Karate Kid franchise, The Kung Fu Kid tells the story of a young kid named Dre who, with his mother, moves to Beijing. However, things are not well for Dre as he encounters a bully situation in his new locale. Dre then seeks the help of Mr. Han, a martial art master who teaches him the art of kung fu to fend for himself against the bullies.

So far we know that... Well, it comes as no surprise Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan was cast to play Mr. Han, the martial arts master. However, it was quite the shocker when Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith, was cast to play Dre – the equivalent to the Daniel LaRusso character in the original Karate Kid movie. But we'd be foolish to write the young Jaden off. Jackie Chan has already praised Smith's martial arts skills, insisting the 11-year-old is better at kung fu than his own son.

The Green Hornet
The legendary Green Hornet is getting a makeover! Based on the popular 1966 TV series, The Green Hornet revolves around Britt Reid. Reid is a newspaper publisher by day and a masked vigilante called the Green Hornet by night.

There are probably some others I have missed

1. Neutral Milk Hotel - In an Aeroplane over the Seas
2. Radiohead - Pablo Honey

5. Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet

the best of 2000's so far imo is

1. Arcade Fire - Funeral
2. Radiohead - Amnesiac
3. Kanye West - Late Registration
4. Modest Mouse - The Moon & Antartica
5. The Shins - Chutes to Narrow

On a side note my favorite albums from the 80's were

Chevrolet Aveo Would not Shift out of Park [Nov. 17th, 2009|11:57 am]
[Tags|, , , , , , , ]

Yesterday, my car would not shift out of park. Before I called a tow truck or took it to the dealership, I decided to check google.

I got the idea below. So I managed to get it out of park and into gear, went to class, then took it to the dealership. The guy said he never heart of the problem and he thought he would have to take the entire gear box apart. To which I said, "The GM bulletin said change the brake switch first, then look at the "brake transaxle shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid". To which he said he would go check. He did, and went in, and came out and checked the brake light and the diagnostic fit. So he said that I should leave the car and come back the next day because they didn't have the part. In total he quoted 75 dollars. I left the car, they dropped me off at home, I came back the next day after they changed the brake switch, and guess what, I was right. So instead of having to do what sounded like hundreds of dollars diagnostics and repairs it cost me, 59 dollars.

The lesson is, if something is wrong with you car or something else, it doesn't necessarily hurt to do a little bit of research.

Towel [Oct. 2nd, 2009|03:34 pm]
I always Travel with a Towel, but I never really thought about it in this context.

"A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to- hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."

Scrubs [Sep. 9th, 2009|06:08 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Heres a thing I find concerning. To my understanding the purpose of medical scrubs was to keep germs and bacteria external to a hospital outside of the hospital, and keep the same internal to the hospital inside the hospital. So when you are on the bus which goes by a hospital, and you see all of these nurses get on wearing their medical scrubs.. don't you wonder what's the purpose of them wearing them, if they are going to just wearing them on the bus?

Folk Music [Sep. 7th, 2009|12:59 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , ]
[music |Conor Oberst - Milk Thistle]

An odd change which has happened recently, is I have found myself listening to a lot more Folk Music than I used. I mean before I definitely liked some acoustic Rock, like Elliott Smith, and Jeff Buckley. But I don't think those really count as folk.

I'm not quit sure where it started. I think the point when folk music started to really creep into my mind was when I listened to Neutral Milk Hotel's "In an Aeroplane Over the Sea" and Dallas Green's Album "Sometimes". It's not like I have completely stopped listening to metal, but I have found I also like Folk.

The thought of it got pushed significantly along after I went to the "Folk Fest" in Vancouver, and I heard a number of artists which I really liked including the awesome Dan Mangan. Since then I have been listening to more of Conor Oberst and M. Ward , because they are pretty good too.

Maybe I'm just old now.

Amazon Kindle [Aug. 10th, 2009|09:11 am]
[Tags|, , , ]

The Price of the Kindle is now 299, which is actually a price I am willing to pay for the technology. I am really seriously considering buying it in the future. i have reservations, because Amazon has done some irritating things in the past with the format. However, I do like hte idea of being able to carry around like a bunch of magazines and books in a device of that size.
