Random Saturday thoughts...

Category Random

The wife and I went to see Dark Knight yesterday.  In terms of plot and substance, I don't think it was one of the better ones.  In fact, 10 to 15 minutes in, I was thinking that it was rather slow and wasn't up to the hype.  But Heath Ledger as The Joker...  wow!  I know people had been talking Oscar for this one, and I thought (mistakenly) that it was due to his death.  Hey, if you want to be a legend, die at the top of your game (or on the ascent).  But an Oscar for this performance would be a no-brainer.  Ledger *became* the character, and in my opinion made the movie far more than it would have been otherwise.  It's definitely not a "feel good" movie, as it's extremely dark and disturbing (and unfortunately has some elements of truth tucked away in there).  We'll probably have to follow it up with something lighter, like Mamma Mia.  :)

Also, I joined in on the .me domain scramble.  Of course, all the good ones are taken, like bite.me, kiss.me, and so on.  Phrases that end in the word "me" are just about as difficult to find.  But I *did* come up with one that really surprised me in terms of being available...


I don't have a clue as to what I'll do with it.  Perhaps some mixed martial arts federation or a self-defense company will make me an offer on it.  Can't say that I wouldn't consider it.  :)


Gravatar Image1 - Tom-thanks for the insights on the movie. My youngest wants to see it but we decided it would be abit dark for him-not a very popular decision but hey...
Have about 5 pages left in the newest Reacher book-not sure if I think it is as good as his others but still a good read. Might have to grab the Google Hacks book sound very useful. Take luck - skip

Gravatar Image2 - I just got the last Reacher book from the library, and we're headed out for a four day vacation in Central Oregon. I think that'll take one of the days. :)
