My weekend starts today because as of this week my off days are Friday/Saturday.

Going out tonight for what promises to be a boozy send off as yet another close buddy leaves our department for greener pastures.   :'(

Tomorrow:  clean house, sell stuff on Ebay, get ready for Shabbat.

Saturday:  Day of Rest

Would love to get out to a movie somewhere in there, failing that I'd like to watch a couple of my DVDs.

Sunday:  get stuff done while it's quiet at work.

:-\ Ouch....

Myself, well, I have Happy Together, In The Mood For Love and 2046 to watch, Watchmen and Wide Open to read and I may either try to start a second draft of a script for class or perhaps start writing a novel that will peter out in all of about two weeks/2000 words max.

Oh, and I went and saw The Duchess and had dinner with one of my very best friends in the world who I don't see enough last night. Looks like potential for a very good weekend all in all.

Halloween party tonight, which will inevitably feature much alcohol and bizarre-ity.

As for the rest of the weekend... who knows? I might watch some movies, or do some schoolwork, or perhaps just end up sitting on my butt reading.

Monday night I'm going to a cabaret night and having pre- and post-drinks at mine. Then I have my second weekend, which will probably involve going into school to edit...

Of couse I could always just sit on the couch all weekend & catch up on sleep and movie watching.

Today includes a fun-filled evening of buying underwear and socks and a few other provisions for my trip to Spain.

Tomorrow includes editing a video presentation may end up being shown at the UN, which is exciting and terrifying at the same time.

Sunday includes reading Book 9 of Paradise Lost.  Kind of an anti-climactic ending to the weekend.

I'm spending all weekend at uni editing and sound editing and colour grading and finishing documentation.

I'll be doing this until about Wednesday, unless we get very lucky and work harder than I expect. Or if the sound is easier than I expect.

Of course, even after all that, there's still the DVD to compile.

Tomorrow, class in the afternoon. Possibly a screening of Watchmen. It's more likely to be a few Malick films or a few David Gordon Green films.

Saturday I'm going to the zoo with friends for a birthday. Then in the evening I'll probably head out and meet up with my newly engaged brother and the rest of the family for dinner and such.

Then, Sunday, I'll meet back up with above friends for afternoon tea for said birthday.

Monday's a public holiday, so I probably won't head to the Nova because the tickets won't be cheap, although there is a chance I might go see Beautiful (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1170391/), or maybe Frozen River.

My grandpa had a cottage on a lake up there. He died about 9 years ago, and due to a very complicated situation my dad and his siblings only just now got possession of it. It needs a lot of maintenance, so we're trying to get it ready to be usable for this summer.

Unfortunately due to illness that I thought I was done with, I didn't end up going (this is no condition to be driving that far in).

My cousin and his wife are bringing my niece and nephew over to Boston tomorrow since they have spring break next week. Some other family-members are coming over as well. So it's going to be hectic.

Yeah, 70mm film is ultra high resolution. Standard size for films is 35mm.

Help me out, one film nerd to another.
Film exists in a multitude of resolutions. The most typical are: 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm, Super 16mm, 35mm, and 70mm. Each is progressively larger, meaning that when the image is exposed onto the film, there is a greater surface area on which an image can be created, meaning it has a greater resolution. So a 70mm print has a much greater resolution than a 35mm print (which is the standard most movies are made in), and so is clearer and more beautiful to look at, and can be presented larger.

It's an expensive format to shoot on, and it's not done much nowadays. The New World was partially shot in 70mm, but the last film to be entirely shot in 70mm was Baraka in 1992.

So yeah, 70mm is bigger, and a higher quality image. It's also exceedingly rare, and not a lot of cinemas can handle it. The Astor, where 2001 is screening tonight is the only capable cinema in Melbourne, and it's a MASSIVE screen. Not quite IMAX size, but for a normal cinema, huge. (It's also where my graduation screening is taking place. The thought of seeing my work in the size they present is terrifying. I also saw The Godfather there for the first time recently. It's a pretty great cinema.)

I don't really have a full knowledge of this stuff tho, and sdedalus could probably give a better explanation, but I think that covers the most of it.

OR: What Melvil said.

Do you Americans get a four day weekend this week for Easter?

Personally, I'm flying up to Sydney for the National Brass Band competition, leaving tomorrow lunch time, getting back Monday. I'm expecting to get a lot of reading done. I'm also planning to download loads of podcasts so that I don't run out between leaving and getting back. Old Filmspottings, Ouch!, Creative Screenwriting perhaps.

I'm also about to go buy hot cross buns for tomorrow. In my family we always only ate them on Good Friday, and if I had a choice I would be, but I missed out on them the past two years, last year cause I was in Brisbane, and the year before I was in Malaysia, so I'm not going without this year, even if it's a day early.

worm, here's a tray of hot cross buns as we have them in Aus.  Also you can get hot no-cross buns at the same shop.  I don't know why "no-cross"; must have been a protest or something over the "cross" on the bun.  Anyway, that was before my time. They have cinnamon and raisins or chocolate bits, but they don't taste like the cinnamon buns in the US.

Also in Aus, the four day holiday is Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday, Easter Monday.  I have no idea what Easter Saturday and Easter Monday mean, other than it's like spring break except of course it's autumn here.  Also chocolate eggs, everywhere...not decorated hen's eggs, but chocolate eggs instead.  Everyone exchanges them.  Again I don't know why, except it's a tradition.  And of course, not much in the way of Easter bunnies as rabbits aren't favored Down Under.

Those are the exact hot cross buns I bought this morning Saltine!  :D

And yeah, I don't know why we get the Monday as well. Officially, I don't believe the Saturday is a public holiday, just Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. I suppose it's just an opportunity for people to relax and have some time off, which is never a bad thing.

Do you not do chocolate eggs in the US? Chocolate is the whole point of Easter! Maybe it's a British thing that's carried over here but been abandoned in the US.

From past experience, isn't that when things always go wrong?  Barring injuries though, I just can't see anyone else having enough pitching to win it.

Sometimes, but even in past years when the Cubs were picked to win or be significantly better you had the Astros and Cardinals with decent clubs, and despite what the experts would say the Cubs were essentially a three to four man team. This year none of the Central clubs seem like a threat and this is on paper the most complete team the Cubs have ever heard, and this is before they add at the trade deadline, I'm looking at you Jake Peavy.

Gotta say, if Harden stays healthy (pretty unlikely) I'd rather not get Peavy.  Seems like something is off with him these days, and a move from Petco certainly wouldn't help things.

I've liked what I've seen from him so far, to me he seems more uninspired than anything. Personally I would rather the Royal's fall out of it and the Cubs go after Zack Grienke, but I doubt that would happen.

Yeah, can't see them trading him after the investment they've made in him the last few years.  I was kicking myself for benching him yesterday before he shutdown the Sox (he was like 0-6 at the Cell).

He was on the trading block last year, if the Cubs couldn't get Harden he was one of the alternatives. If the Royals suck this year he could be on the block again, but they are a bit better this year so they may not suck that much.

So I'm finally home after a long weekend.

Flew up to Sydney Thursday, all fine.

Friday, the band played the Hymn and Test Piece, and did the Hymn the best we'd ever done it. Test piece was also very good. Listened to a few of the A Grade bands, including the sister band to the one I'm in, at their first A Grade comp.

Saturday was the street march at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, right next to Homebush stadium where the 2000 Olympics were held. I had to do the inspection twice, once for the D Grade and for the A Grade as well, because two people were running late. It was pretty horrendous. The D Grade band came dead last, but the band never puts much of an emphasis on marching. I also had a look around the show, and bought a Warheads showbag! I also impressed myself by managing to not buy a showbag ironically, such as a Hannah Montana or Sesame Street one.

Sunday was the Own Choice and Stage March, and we performed early. Results were announced about two and a half hours later. We won the Own Choice, and didn't place lower than third in any of the other fields. The good news is, we won the own choice by a clear enough margin to take out the competition! So less than 18 months after forming, the band has won the title of best D Grade band in the Nation. We were pretty majorly stoked.

A Grade performed again in the evening, and performed an amazing piece called Earthquake that is simply amazing. There is a guy in the band, Angus, who plays cornet with D Grade, but is studying percussion at uni, and is a FREAK. He was simply brilliant to watch, and it was one hell of a performance. It was quite amusing, because he spent quite a long time setting up, causing annoyance in the audience. After, everyone was like, fair enough. It was great. The band didn't do too well, but considering it was their first competition as an A Grade band, we feel they acquitted themselves very admirably.

So last night there was a party, and I had a bottle of Cabernet Syrah that was very nice. But then people started giving me donations, and I got very drunk. Drunk enough that I was still extremely drunk at breakfast. And then I had to fly hungover, which wasn't overably pleasant. I'm still not feeling too well, although the litre odd of water that I've had in the past hour or so has helped immeasurably.

The best of all this is, I had a good weekend. A really good weekend  actually. Last year I hated the weekend, as I didn't really know anyone and spent the whole time in my room moping. This year, I made the effort to talk to people and be social in general, and it payed off big time. I'm exhausted and glad to be home, but in a great mood, and glad to have made the effort.

It's a bag... which you buy at a show... It's kinda hard to explain I guess. The show is sort of a county fair I suppose, with animals, and rides, and entertainment, and baking sections and so forth, and there's showbags. They cost anywhere from $1 through to probably about $30, and some have lollies, novelties, toys. The Hannah Montana one had a wig, as did many others, and there were more substantial ones that I didn't really see.

Mine was a Warheads one, and came with about 15 warheads, bubblegum, a lollypop with bubblegum in the middle, some sour things, that sort of stuff. It was $5, and that was why I bought it, along with recent boards discussion of warheads, which left me craving.

It included an overnight trip to Innsbruck (Austria), two lovely Mum-cooked lunches, three really good-to-great animated films, one fantastic live theatre performance, one plumbing emergency, a bit of spring cleaning and lots of sleep. All in all, not bad!

Setting the alarm clock to 6:15 am now... Ouch.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. They're a major part of the Show here. Before the Melbourne Show, one of the newspapers prints a list of all the showbags, what's in them, how much they cost, and if they're value for money. Some people go crazy and spend quite a lot of money on them.

Bloc Party, if we can find tickets.

Watching some Ingmar Bergman (I have Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal), and perhaps The Bank Job, Eternal Sunshine (only my 2nd viewing), and Hannah and Her Sisters
According to my calculations (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=4075.msg151967#msg151967), that's 10% of the best films ever.  :)

Spent the weekend and the pre-weekend creating aaahhht. J, a friend, and I took a collage class that wasn't really a class as much as it was a 3-day work session with a stinky hippy. It was a helluvalotta fun. My first piece was a large piece of trash that I hated. My second piece was a refined version of the first piece. My third piece, my favorite, was also pretty refined. Then I went messy again with my fourth and fifth pieces. Surprisingly, I like them both, even though I know I just picked up the nearest scrap of material and glued it to the piece with only a second's worth of thought. No meaning behind those pieces. Just "Oo, pretty!"-->Glue.

Phillies game tomorrow. Allergies are still a pain in the neck, more specifically the throat as swallowing at all is painful, but hopefully it's a fun day and I have a cheese steak or some pulled pork or something because that would be kick ass. Hopefully Javier strikes out many Phillies, but the Phils also end up winning because Chase Utley hit 4 home runs or stole 8 bases.

Me and a few other people made a day trip to Michigan yesterday, but we got delayed over 2 hours because my cousin and I were in a car accident before we got out of town. It wasn't major, and nobody was seriously hurt, but it scared the hell out of me. I got the wind knocked out of me and hit my head on something which hurt for a few hours, but it was mostly the sensation of being pelted with broken glass and a 24oz coffee exploding over the inside of the pickup cab that made things interesting.

After that we got our moving done (with one less truck than we had planned since my cousin's was out of commission after that) and finished building / installing a pier.

Today, mostly Mother's day stuff.

Yikes!  Did you run into something?  Get run into?

We were the lucky middle car in a three-car sandwich. The guy in front of us was at a light, but didn't start moving when it turned green (?), we were slowing down to stop behind him when we got hit from the rear. The guy behind us was apparently paying more attention to the light than the cars at it, so he pushed us into the car in front of us.

Of course, both of the other cars barely took any damage outside of their bumpers while my cousins truck is probably totaled.

Looks like a good one, maybe. Free nachos before class today, during which we're watching Chungking Express, then two studio shoots in a row, one for my post-production title sequence, one for my music video. It might be a very late one, but it'll be the last shooting for the semester if it all goes well.

Tomorrow I'm going into school to edit, possibly for many hours. Then I'll probably watch some Almodovar in the evening.

Sunday I've got a day to myself. There'll be some Almodovar, and I'll try to catch up with At Swim, Two Boys, and I'm also planning to maybe make some soup and ses's baked apple oatmeal (http://sarahskitchenadventures.blogspot.com/2008/09/baked-apple-oatmeal.html). I'll also hopefully get to make a phonecall to my friend in the UK who I haven't spoken to in about a month or so.

It should be a good one.

Tomorrow, I'm going to write up thoughts about the two films, which will probably take me hours - for some reason I am having a really hard time writing in English at the moment. Drinks with a friend in the evening.
Lots of sleep and maybe a coffee somewhere on Sunday. In the evening I'm going to go listen to some Jazz with my Dad.

Then back to Cincy Sunday, but as soon as I get back it's time to leave for Columbus for the night, as my mom, brother and I are going to Cedar Point in Sandusky on Monday, two long days in a row. Then getting up early to drive back down to Cincy and work in the morning on Tuesday, which will also be the day I see either The Hurt Locker or (500) Days of Summer.

Any missed chance for Cedar Point is very sad. I didn't always remember to take pictures that day, but Maverick was my third favorite of the day. Raptor is great if ridden from the front, and Magnum was closed when we tried to ride it :(. 20 years old and Magnum still holds up as a great ride though. As for corkscrew, it is kind of lame, but it was the first of its kind...and makes for a good pic.

Hutch might have somewhere. But he was absolutely hilarious as always. He told like 9 different stories in the hour and a half and every bit of it was great. My jaw hurt afterwards from laughing so hard. The only disappointment was that we went to the early show, so we didn't get to talk to him afterward. Although, he was at the University of Cincinnati, where me and Hutch go, to do a show, which was organized by Hutch who got to pick him up at the airport and drive him to his hotel and the show, and we met him then obviously.

You two are supposed to stop engaging each other, but, I admit, I have wondered this same thing for a while myself.  How do you go about preparing for a review, void?  Is that part of your for music reviews, too, or more just for movies?

Well, I just write a couple of opening paragraphs and such in relating to the film or record.  If it's an album by an artist already known.  I kinda pick up where they left off and then explain what the record is about in some respects and such.  If it's a film.  Since it's in relation to the films about the war in Iraq, I would explain its lack of commercial impact as well as lack of strong stories and then mention Kathryn Bigelow.  Then I write a very brief summary of what the film is about and themes it explores through sources and such without trying to be spoiled.  Then say it stars who and who and not say anything about the film after I've finished watching it.  I do some re-editing after I see it.  It's a process I always do.

It should be a rule somewhere that vacations are NOT ALLOWED TO END ON A WEEKEND.

It will depend on which kind of Sunday it is.  If it's one where a major case happens and I'm tied up all night with it, it will suck.  If it's one of the really quiet Sunday evening shifts it will be great because I can do all the post vacation chores (clear out e- and voice mail, sort all the paperwork from the week etc) and kind of ease back into things.

Cool.  That's LBI isn't it?

Whenever I hear "Manasquan" my brain always automatically adds "to Cape Henlopen" because that was the area covered by local weather forecasts on the weather radio my dad always had on while he shaved in the morning.  My bed was up against the wall where their bathroom was on the other side so I always woke up to the quasi-robot voice reciting conditions "from Manasquan to Cape Henlopen".

I'm going to get my last birthday present. Two friends handed me a cookbook and four bookmarks, two with friend A's name on it, two with friend B's name on it. They said I should leave the bookmarks in the pages of a starter, a main course, a dessert and a cocktail, and they would make me that dinner. So after much careful thought about what I wanted to eat (and about the cooking skills of my friends), I am going to have a luscious meal consisting of

- Goat's cheese in puff pastry with salad
- Tuna in a sesame crust with sweet potatoes
- a layered apple/walnut/cream dessert that looks amazing

- a cocktail (can't remember the name) with vodka, white wine, apple and elderberry juice

(Starter and dessert prepared by friend A, main course and cocktail prepared by friend B)

Best birthday present ever? I'll report back on Sunday.

Back! The weather turned out to be great! Not too hot, but clear every day. We figured we did about 45km over the three days, 5 of which was portaging (ugh). Pretty much just like ever other canoe trip I've taken this summer, only better :) Plus there was almost nobody on the lakes this weekend.

Found a good little island to camp on the first day.

I found my favourite ever tent spot the next night. It's hard to see, but it's just under the tree there.

That's about it. No pictures of actual canoeing or portaging, because it's always too much trouble to get the camera out (I need a pocket sized cam in a bad way).

Anyways, this was an awesome weekend. And I'm home with time to watch a movie or two  ;D

Great photos, smirnoff!

There was an unexpected development during my weekend: on Friday, I met two of my equally anglophile friends, and the plan was to have tea and dinner, and then watch a BBC costume drama. Well, during dinner, one of my friends confessed to a Robert Pattinson/Twilight obsession, which resulted in us watching Twilight, because my other friend had read all the books and was curious about the film, and I couldn't help but be intrigued about the man (boy?) that had seduced my oh-so sophisticated friend. The film was rather horrible but weirdly entertaining in a train-wreck sort of way, but I couldn't for the life of me see what my two friends (or should I say the two squeeing little girls beside me on the couch) saw in that vampire. I honestly tried, but, ahem, no. It was so much fun to argue about the whole business, though, so it was not a waste of time ;)

The dinner (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=4699.msg307476#msg307476) my friends (not the same friends as above) made for me on Saturday was indeed the best thing ever. The goat cheese was seasoned with honey and rosemary, and my favourite part of the whole dinner.

What did I learn from this weekend? I have weird and wonderful friends (and the weirder they are, the more wonderful they are, too).

Re: Twilight - One of my closest friends (whose taste I trust) recently started reading the Twilight books because she teaches 7 and 8 graders, and she wanted to see what her girls were obsessing over. She found that instead of being able to give some wise words of caution to the girls, she herself has now been sucked into the world of the books. They are rather delicious in a weird juvenile way, she says.  ???
On Slate's Spoiler Specials, Dana Stevens's conversation about Twilight (the movie) a while back was really entertaining/interesting, I thought. Did you listen to it?

No, I didn't - maybe I will, even if I have no intention of letting myself get sucked into that world as well. I don't have the slightest doubt that I would have caught the virus equally badly had I read the books before accumulating all that snobbery and resistance towards it - I'm not normally one to pass up the opportunity of a good swoon  ;). But I am sure that if I started reading the books now, it would end in a DaVinci-Code-like scenario where I wouldn't be able to put the book down while being aware all the time that it's not very well-written (from what I understand) and that I really shouldn't be reading it.

Mostly, though, I guess it's me being stubborn and refusing/being unable to switch off my brain. Plus, Robert Pattinson is really, really weird-looking and creepy and unattractive to me, so I don't want or need his image in my head all the time.

Depeche Mode -

In high school and college, the Big 3 for me were Depeche Mode, Erasure, and New Order. Then later New Order got replaced with Pet Shop Boys. I never went to concerts in high school or college, so I never saw any of these acts live. In the years since college, I've seen Erasure 3 or 4 times and Pet Shop Boys twice. I've never seen Depeche Mode. I wish I enjoyed their latest album as much as others, but I'm still excited to see the concert. That's all to say, that I feel like I'm completing my own, personal Cycle of 80s. If I wanted to be a true completest, I would search out New Order, but I just don't like anything they've turned out since "Regret."

The Get Ready album I liked a lot but the last one wasn't that great.  They just split up.  Bernard Sumner & Stephen Morris formed one band while Peter Hook formed another called Freebass. 

Depeche Mode is still kicking ass live.  I like their new album.  Not as good as the last one but still better than a lot of the music from the acts that came out of the 1980s.

There will be 120 people there, of which I have met about twelve, and of those twelve, I think I would only recognize eight on the street (it's a part of the family that I am not particularly close with). Thank God my brother will be coming with me.

A bit of the weekend will also be spent being jealous of my parents, who at this very moment are on a plane to Vancouver, where they'll board a ship that is going to take them on a cruise up to Alaska and then all the way down to San Diego. They sooooo deserve it and I am happy for them, but I'm still a bit jealous.

How cool for your parents! (Boo! that you don't get to go.) Uri and I have wanted to take that trip up to Alaska. The ferry actually docks right here in Bellingham, too. We have friends who've purchased tickets that don't include cabins/staterooms - they slept on the deck. They said the whole trip was a pretty fantastic experience.

Watch Blue and do that and other overdue MDC writeups.

Numerous other half done projects that I can work on to fill up the rest of the time.

Comedy Death Ray (http://resilientrabbit.com/comedy-death-ray-at-2009-vancouver-global-comedy-fest/) - Awesome line up of BJ Porter, Scott Aukerman, Andy Kindler, Maria Bamford, Tig Nataro, Reggie Watts, Todd Barry, and Paul F. Tompkins. Andy dick was scheduled to appear but they wouldn't let him into the country, I didn't miss him. Inexplicably some arshehole starts heckling Todd Barry despite the fact that the room loves him. All in all a really fun night.

CRD Podcast Taping - About 8 of us show up for a free podcast taping in a tiny little hotel conference room. At first there's this strange nervous energy because the room is so small but it turns out to be awesome. The guests were Reggie Watts, Nick Thune, Todd Barry, Paul F. Tompkins. I don't know how well it translates when you listen to the podcast, but in person PFT was easily one of the funniest things I have ever witnessed. My girlfriend and I were falling off our chairs in laughter every time he spoke.

Pardo Double Feature - A live NNF recording and "You Fascinate Me" (http://i36.tinypic.com/5dwlmt.jpg) for $25, you can't beat that! NNF is a standard episode, not particular spectacular and it loses steam towards the end, but still a lot of fun. YFM  (http://i37.tinypic.com/25q7xvm.jpg)is completely and totally awesome. The festival has it in a hotel conference room, which is a strange venue, but whatever.

David Cross - The Cross show was kind of an odd-ball thing 'cause a lot of us were expecting stand-up but it turns out on his end it was intended to be a book tour event. Which would be fine if the festival website had been more clear about that and the ticket wasn't so much. Cross is really great about the misunderstanding and seems genuinely embarrassed that people were charged so much to hear him do a reading. To make up for being overpriced he gets everybody's address and says he'll (our of pocket) buy everybody a book. Cross reads from his book, the first one is kind of terrible, and the second one is kind of amusing. After that Aukerman comes out for a chat and that was a lot of fun. There is also a Q&A that is kinda fun but also kind of awkward. He reports that the Arrested Development movie is a go. The crowd goes wild.


Because I won a contest I was staying in a hotel where all the performers were also staying, so in elevators and in the bar I was able to meet Andy Kindler, Todd Barry, Scott Aukerman, and the whole NNF trio. Everybody was super nice and seemed really sincerely flattered when I told them I was a big fan. Also bumped into Scott Adsit from 30 Rock and Oscar from The Office.   

I regret not going to Yuk Yuks on the Friday night because apparently the crowd was so drunk and belligerent that it had to be seen to be believed. I actually skipped that show to avoid the yahoos, but now I wish I had been there because apparently PFT did like 15 minutes of no material and instead just antagonized the crowd. Word on the street is he was brilliant.

If you guys don't crush them after what I saw last week then no Pac-10 team deserves to be in the national title game this year.

There I fixed that for you.

I share that sentiment, but sadly the BCS doesn't, so as long as a Pac-10 team has one loss at the end of the year they will be given more consideration than other more deserving teams.

You are forgetting about Boise, if Oregon makes the national title game over Boise I may just say to hell with college football until the BCS is done away with.

It's true. So great. I'm actually a little surprised about how much I've come to enjoy watching the NFL. I used to think it was just okay, but now that we have a pool going at the office and I've started betting online, I can't get enough. I finally have a reason to cheer (or weep) :) It actually rivals my love of hockey now!

Had a great time in Virginia this weekend. The drive there was interesting because we drove a good chunk of the way there with two girls from Marshall who were going to Liberty to visit one of their brothers. We communicated between cars and even met up when we were going grocery shopping. They gave us brownies and were really nice. A fun experience. Once we were there, the rain held off, so the cold wasn't so bad since we were backpacking the whole time. Got there Friday evening and hiked to the summit of Mt. Pleasant and camped there for the night. It was really foggy Friday and you couldn't see anything, but Saturday morning was clear and the sunrise was beautiful. Then we hiked part of the Appalachian Trail on Saturday, camping on the summit of Cold Mountain. That night it got foggy again. When we awoke there was snow all around us and the fog was still there. We hiked out in the morning and got back to the car around 8:30am and drove back to Cincy. It was a lot of fun and I got some good photos. I'll come back later with some of them.

Great pics Corndog... I need to plan a hiking trip soon.

My weekend:
Friday: out for dinner and drinks with 5 friends and relaxed back at one of their places afterwards playing cards till 5am
Sat: got up at 845am as the post office was suppose to delivery a package between 9am and 1pm.  Of course it arrived around 4pm.  At least it arrived after twice being sent and rejected and returned to the country of origin.  Now i have a new set of speakers:)

Met up with a friend for Japanese food and then over to a Filipino rest afterward to listen to a friend sing and have a few drinks.

Today.. reading, cleaning, blasting music to break in the new speakers

Yay! I think we will get Danica this weekend. Since we moved into the new house - we haven't been allowed to see her as CPS needs to come out and check out the new place and confirm it's "safe" for her and they move at a glacial pace. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

EDIT:

In case you missed the begining of this story last yr - she is my girlfriend's niece. Her mother died last yr and she was left living with her crackhead grandmother until we found out about her. She lived with us until she developed some medical issues that required constant attention (she was in daycare 10 hrs a day) - instead of providing home care, CPS elected to move her to a foster home where she would have someone around all the time. As much as I hated to do that - she is in much better health and she has a little girl her same age to play with all the time. She usually stays with us on the weekends. Her father is currently trying to get his parental rights as he was out of the picture before she was born and was not even on the birth certificate and he lives in California (I am in Az). The interstate issues are crazy and CPS is as F-d up as you would think.

This has less to do with my weekend but with the kind of weekend it will be for football fans across the country.

Yes, it's the last weekend of November which, if you enjoy going outside without a shirt while it's about 0 degrees celsius, can only mean one thing: Grey Cup weekend.

I'm far from being the biggest CFL fan out there in fact. Still, there is something special about the final game of the year and the weekend during which it takes place. Having the privilege of living in the city that hosted the event last year, I can only imagine the electricity that must be in the air right now in Calgary. Last year there were festivities starting on Thursday in the downtown area (specifically in the Grey Cup village) which lasted until Sunday night. It was really well organized and a lot of fun. I hope football fans in Calgary are having a blast this weekend.

As much as I love the Super Bowl (and the lord knows I love it a lot) there is something a little more 'fan friendly' about the Grey Cup. Whether you're a curious observer, a neutral fan because maybe your team didn't make it this far, or your favourite club is days away from potential glory, I wish you a very merry Grey Cup game.

Go Alouettes go!

Friday Afternoon: I got my placement for student teaching next quarter; apparently I got a good one because that's what people are telling me.

Friday Evening: Drove up to Columbus where I stayed at a friends house with 7 other people who were going to the Pitt game.

Saturday Morning: Woke up at 630am and left for Pittsburgh at 700am. On the way there it began to snow and we saw three SUVs on the way there that had flipped. We also saw numerous other minor crashes that had taken place. We then hit traffic outside of Pittsburgh and didn't get to the game until 1130am. And on the way to the game 3 Pitt fans thought it would be a good idea to instigate a tussle with our group of 8 college aged guys. We tried with all our might to diffuse the situation but these guys had it out for us for some reason. It probably didn't help that one of my friends was holding a sign that said "Pitt blows and so do the Steelers," but what they did was uncalled for. One guy took two of our three signs and tore them up and threw them down and into the street. Luckily it didn't get worse, though I could have seen it going there.

Saturday Afternoon: Best. Game. I. Have. Ever. Seen. This was so intense, I don't remember what all happened it is such a blur of excitement and elation at this point.

Saturday Evening: Drive back to Columbus. Took 30 minutes just to get out of the parking garage. Got back in Columbus at 800pm where we had pizza at my parents house. Then crashed a friends company Christmas party for like 20 minutes before heading back down to Cincinnati.

Saturday Night: Arrive in Cincinnati at Midnight and hang out at a friends new house they just built for a housewarming/cookie/birthday party. Included a sleepover where we stayed up until 330am in the morning.

Sunday: Woke up at 830am, hung out at friends house, went to lunch/mall with friends.

Now time to recover, because it was action packed and a whole lot of fun.

You all are insane.  This kind of weather (freezing cold) is complete justification for staying in the couch.  Which I want to do most of the time, but feel guiltier about when it's nice outside.

I just had to go out to a house to attempt a "knock & talk" to see if anyone there would give me any info without a search warrant.  Not a good address so nothing got done.  But it took almost the whole way there for the heat to start trickling into my car, and when I got back I had to put gas in the thing.  I'm just now thawing out.  It sucks out there tonight.

Took me far too long to find this. In any case:

Saturday: Birthday lunch with the family and flatmates. Great location, great food, lots of presents.
Sunday: Down to Victoria St, which is a huge Vietnamese community, for their Lunar New Year festival. Lots of delicious cheap food including things like crispy salt and pepper squid and banana fritters.
Monday: Birthday! Meet the parents in the city for chocolate in the afternoon - delicious hot chocolate and tiramisu, then on to dinner with the flatmates in Richmond - delicious Thai - then home for cheesecake. Wonderful.
Tuesday: Australia/Invasion/Hottest 100 Day. Make cocktails of frozen strawberries and blueberries, strawberry liquer, gin and ice. Nice, but need to work on my blender skills. Out to a friend's place to listen to the countdown and drink. Meet some awesome people including two lesbian sisters who I totally hit it off with, one of whom lives practically around the corner from me.

All in all, pretty great weekend.

I should have the following movies in the mail today. It should make for an interesting weekend:

Halloween II: Director's Cut (2 DVD) (2009)
The Fog of War
The King of Comedy
Logan's Run - Special Edition

Plus, there's the Harryhausen DVD collection (Legendary Science Fiction Series) to work through. Oh, I haven't watched Hard Candy yet. That DVD is collecting dust.

Was suppose to take a trip to Thailand for some scuba diving and relaxing but a sudden decision to rent out my condo and move next week changed those plans.

Friday... took a day off work to pack...when out for drinks, steaks then to a friend's place for wine and cards

Saturday.. continue to pack my crap (I have too much crap).. take a break to watch a DVD.  More packing.. soon will go out for dinner and drinks with friends.  Maybe go to listen to a band play if not too tired.

Sunday...  will have to do Ikea to pick up curtains...  and more packing.

As every Easter, last weekend was the National Brass Band Championships, held this year in Hobart. I competed with my band (I play the tuba) in the D-Grade section. Like last year, we walked away with the title, which apparently means we're required to move up to C-Grade now. Which is probably a good thing, because we trounced the competition. The bands play a hymn, test piece, own choice and stage march. We won all four sections, which isn't exactly common.

The band also has an A-Grade band, and they also competed, for the second year in A-Grade (they were moved up in 2008). They ended up coming third last, which is a shame, because they actually played really well on the first day (when the hymn and test piece are played) and placed 7th in the test piece, which is pretty great, considering how hard it was. The band is definitely improving, which is great.

There's also a street march, but our band isn't exactly serious about marching.

The great thing about the weekend is the socializing. The band all stays in the one hotel, so there was loads of playing cards, having drinks, going out for meals together and the like. There's a few people in the band I don't entirely get along with, but there's a lot more that I get along with really really well. So it was really just a great weekend, even with the stress of flying (something I don't do great, although I'm far from a terrible flyer) and coming home totally exhausted.

ahh, weather was nice, at least no rain and calm seas, 95degrees and 95% humidity is a but hard to take but scuba diving was great. 

I didn't see them but when we were on the way around some of the islands, the tour guide on the boat was proud to point out that behind some mountain was a "cliff that Leo DiCaprio dove off of." One of the local maps had a special interest point that was Leo's house.  I guess he loved it enough to buy some property.

Now I actually want to go back and watch The Beach though I do not recall liking it the first time.

Hmmm, I must be thinking of somewhere else in TN then. I know I went to a place in TN that has indoor water parks as well as rides and such just like the Dells, but that was when I was about 7, so I could just be misremembering the whole experience.  :)

I went to Devil's Lake last week which is just outside of the Dells.  We passed through there, and it was packed with tourists and things like massive indoor water parks and mini-golf.  Reminded me of Pigeon Forge, TN.

Oh yeah, the two are very similar, except I think Dells has more of a focus on gambling. I can't remember, does Pigeon Forge have the casino/water parks or not?

I don't think TN has gambling, and I think there is an indoor water park, but the main draw of Pigeon Forge is Dollywood.

Hmmm, I must be thinking of somewhere else in TN then. I know I went to a place in TN that has indoor water parks as well as rides and such just like the Dells, but that was when I was about 7, so I could just be misremembering the whole experience.  :)

It probably was Pigeon Forge, I pass through there every time I go to the Smoky Mountains.  To me, the Dells seemed very similar.

Let's see, this Friday I'm heading to the Dells form my brothers high school graduation on that same day and the ensuing party on Saturday. Sunday I shall be going on a third date, although I think we're actually going out now, so the date counting can stop already.

You're probably right, I know my Grandpa and I took the same route every time we would visit North Carolina and that meant going through TN. I still have a picture of my Grandpa and I on one of those ski lift type carriages that was operating on the side of a mountain in TN, that may have been Pigeon Forge.

Title: Re: Weekend
Post by: ferris on June 15, 2010, 12:04:00 PM
...our server was super nice. And she kept calling us "hun" or "dear" which added to the charm of the experience...

The older I get, the more I like that...Of course, the older I get the fewer people say that to me...


Went to P.F. Changs for lunch. Man, that place is AWESOME. Between the three of us we got 4 dishes, an appetizer and 3 beers, and the bill was only like 70 bux. For the quality it seemed like a great value. Again, super nice server (and cute).

I like it too.  Hmmm....might have to hit that place for lunch today!

Picked up some Sierra Nevada beer on the way back from the game, to go with the Cinnabon's I bought earlier at the mall. (yum). Watched about 2 minutes of that movie with Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, Kate Winslet and Jude Law on tv before calling it a night.

2 minutes was about all I could stand of that movie as well.  I believe it was called "Forgettable Valentine's Day Release", but I can't be certain...


Stopped at a great diner-style Denny's just outside Minneapolis for breakfast. Beat the hell out of IHOP.[/li][/list]

For some reason going out for breakfast is always the coolest.  We only do that when on a vacation, so it always seems extra good.  IHOP is too friggin expensive. $8 omelette!??

Glad you had a great trip, smirnoff! Have you taken the bike out yet?

Alas, the bike didn't come with pedals. I knew it wouldn't (seems like most higher-end bikes don't), but I assumed I could pick some up locally. Unfortunately, before going to buy some I made the mistake of researching what is and is not a good pedal, and now I HAVE to have pedal xyz that nobody around here carries. ::)

I ordered them from amazon yesterday, but they'll take a torturously long time to get here. :(

I'll spend the next 2 weeks Flintstoning the bike around my living room. ;)

I think your trip is worth it for this... I miss Sierra Nevada, I went to their brewery in Chico, Ca once and they had about 20 beers they brewed but you can only ever find 1 or 2 in the stores.  I think the first thing I do when I travel back the US in 2 months is pick up a 6 pack...

My weekend has begun in spectacular style. Leaving work early to try to avoid the mini tornado shit storm that was due to hit and had already delayed my flight to a friends wedding in Minneapolis. of course, said monster storm chose to arrive early and drop it's giant hail and lightning exactly as I waited for the bus, soaking me through. Then the el train broke down on the way to the airport. Getting to the totally jammed airport, I found my flight was now delayed by an extra hour. I then had the opportunity to do that brilliantly pathetic thing people do in such situations: use the hand dryer in a pathetic attempt my shoes and socks, and sadly ruined in-flight reading. 

I am finally boarding now. Man am I going to get drunk at this wedding.

Yes, I've had it; but I'm from central Texas where they understand barbeque can be smoked with wood other than mesquite, so I'm more a central Texas bbq lover.  A really good bbq chain which is popping up all over the country is Rudy's BBQ.  If you see it, try that.  It's on lots of interstates near cities.  Rudy's started in Leon Springs, outside San Antonio, then it was bought out and franchised.  It's typical of central Texas bbq (though not the very, very best, but excellent for a chain).

Tomorrow: first and only rehearsal for three horrendously difficult choir pieces with a hastily thrown together little choir. Also housework.
Sunday morning: performance of said choir pieces at the christening of my brother's godson.
Sunday afternoon/evening: concert of my brother's (regular) choir, followed by this year's first trip to the Oktoberfest. That's going to be quite the contrast, but yay!

Why is Oktoberfest in September? I saw that somewhere else this week and wondered about the timing and title.

Back when the Oktoberfest was born, it only lasted for a day or a weekend in early October. Now, the rule is that it always ends on the first Sunday of October. Usually it lasts for 16 days, so it always starts on a Saturday in mid- to late September.

It can be 17 or 18 days long if the first Sunday of October is the 1st or the 2nd - in these cases it is extended until the 3rd, our national holiday.

With a strip club it all depends on which one you go to. In the entirety of Illinois there are two that are actually worthwhile, the rest are completely dark for a reason.

Chinese New Year is starting so a 5 day weekend plus taking next week off to visit Perth and surrounding areas so no work (ok, a little since I have a few things I need to work on) until mid Feb after today:)  Hopefully back in a better state upon return...

I may occasionally stop in... but am going to try to stay away from as much casual surfing as I possible can starting tomorrow...

Finished helping my buddy lay his patio. We never would've thought it'd be as much work as it ended up being, but the results are good. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Managed not to get sunburnt which is nice, it was 30c and humid most of the week/end.

A bit of clean up, laying down some new grass and adding a garden, chairs and a table and then it'll be good to go. (I'll never do that job again :)))

Time to put on a movie which I'll likely just fall asleep to.

Rode to the park, found a shady tree to sit under and watched some cricket action (understanding none of it). One of the residents of the tree, a chipmunk, came down from the canopy to investigate my presence, I think looking for food. All I had with me was a banana. He didn't seem too interested in it. That suited me fine as I didn't much feel like sharing (it was a long ride). I agreed to bring graham crackers with me next visit and that seemed to appease him. He returned to his chipmunk duties before I could procure a photograph to commemorate encounter. Chipmunks it seems do not get weekend off.

I'm back from Disney's D23 Expo. Like most conventions I saw and learned and did a lot of things. A bulk of the convention was spent learning about updates to the Disney Parks and Resorts, watching the induction of this year's Disney Legends and learning more about Disneyland's upcoming Cars Land.

I'm working on a really large report of the Disney Studios Presentation that I will post in Movie Buzz. Let me know here or through a PM if you want to know some of the other stuff.


p.s. FLY, I saw the cast of Fish Hooks, A.N.T. Farm, Shake it Up and Kickin It, but none of them made a lasting impression on me.
Title: Re: Weekend
Post by: FLYmeatwad on August 21, 2011, 11:14:39 PM
Yeah, those are (mostly) lower quality programs. I forget who exactly was there, but each show does have a few standouts that I really enjoy.

Fish Hooks is mostly the Chelsea Kane (Staub/Staub-Kane) show for me, and even then I really dislike her character. Actually I dislike that show a great deal. She was good in the JONAS shows though, and she danced with the stars.

I've only seen a couple episodes of Kickin' It because that's a Disney XD program and it's mostly new. The guy who was Leo Little (I don't think that's his real name) is the star, but I don't like him. I think Jason Earles of Hannah Montana fame - and of being incredibly old in comparison to the rest of the HM cast fame - is cool though, as is Moises Arias's brother.

A.N.T Farm is also very new, but I think that show has potential. It follows a formula very similar to Hannah Montana in the sense that the lead girl will be showcased as a musical talent. But that works because it seems like that Chyna girl can sing. Plus she was great on that WoWP Wizards vs. Angels special, even if she is a bit too perky and ought to learn to reign that in. Her brother and dad are goofs, her mother is mostly not on the show (while Miley/Hannah's was dead in HM), her BFF at school is a blonde semi-outcast, and the male friend has a crush on Chyna, while in HM Oliver ended up with Lilly. The kids who play Fletcher and Angus are pretty fun. Sierra McCormick, who plays Chyna's BFF Olive, is the clear standout for me though. I think the character is written incredibly well, especially compared to the other characters, but she brings a good deal to the character as well. I look for her to have a bright future.

Shake It Up seems to be the live action show that Disney is putting its chips behind. I wrote at length about it (I'll find the link later) when HM finished. Basically I think Bella Thorne (she has the same last name as FLY, which is super dank) and Zendaya have excellent chemistry. The two Hessenheifers are fun enough to cancel out that damn annoying little brother, and Ty is usually enough to cancel out Deuce...who also sucks. There's some Camp Rock pedigree with Ty as well, I think, but I may be mistaken. But yeah, Bella and Zendaya are talents.

Still, super super super dank that you saw them all. I actually think that of the LA's that Disney and Disney XD are currently airing I would rank them as follows:

1. Wizards of Waverly Place (though this is ending soon. Not sure when, but soon. Selena's character just graduated on the most recent episode)
2. Zeke and Luther (Ryan Newman is fantastic, Daniel Curtis Lee is fantastic, Adam Hicks is fantastic, and Hutch Dano isn't half bad either)
3. A.N.T Farm (There is promise here)
4. My Babysitter's A Vampire (this is, technically speaking, a really clean, nice looking show. I really wish I had seen the film that set it up as well. It's no So Weird, but Disney will never have a show of that caliber again, so this one could actually be pretty good.)
5. Shake It Up (There was promise here, but for now it's a show I like even though I wouldn't call it good)
6. Pair of Kings (Musso and Shaw are just so damn great to watch together, even if the show is terrible)
7. So Random! (This is an experiment gone horribly wrong. Such a talented cast, but without Demi it seems rather pointless for have it on air as it's worlds inferior to Sonny With A Chance)
8. Kickin' It (haven't seen much, but what I have seen is not good)

I think those are all of the shows. It's a bleak time for Disney, especially after their Golden Age of TV. Right now the Nickelodeon show Victorious is better than all of these shows except Wizards. They are clearly trying to manufacture stars, but while shows like Suite Life, Wizards, Sonny, and even HM to an extent, tried to expand what a Disney show could be, these are all taking steps backwards. Honestly, only two of those shows in their current state are good, and even Zeke and Luther is usually dependent on how much the supporting cast is integrated in to the stories.

Sad times all around.

BUT, that conventions seems incredible.

Got invited to some Moon Festival dinner thing with live performances and silent auctions and raffles and line dancing. The food was good but served so slowly that you could eat almost continuously and never get hungry. Moon cake is yummy. I bid on an incredibly tacky plate with a dragon and  "Marco Polo" painted on it, and won. I had no intention of winning it, I just bid to get the ball rolling ($30)... the thing's like a foot and a half wide! Oh well, good times.

Home improvement update: single-handedly removed the bathtub today. I feel like one of those fishermen who has spent an hour reeling in a marlin. It was a real wrestling match, made tougher by not having all the exact tools a person would usually use for such a job.

The first difficulty was disconnecting the tub from the drainage plumbing. Being on a concrete slab and pinched between two walls meant my only access was from above. Supposedly a tool exists to unscrew a drain from the plumbing, thus releasing the tub from its last point of attachment. I did not have this tool, and sacrificed a pair of pliers in an attempt at improvisation. After it was clear I wouldn't be able to separate the drain from the plumbing I did the nest best thing, I separated the drain from the tub. Amid surprisingly sharp flecks of flying enamel paint chipping off in all directions, I spent about 20 minutes drilling holes around the drain. And then I spent 20 more minutes breaking the metal apart between each hole (a good job for a crumby pair of tin snips which I didn't mind abusing). It made for one ugly "cut" but separation was achieved. Next I had to figure out how to get a tub out of a room that was only as wide as the tub was long. Lemme tell you, pivoting a tub up out of a bind like that is no fun at all. It's heavy, it's sharp-edged, and it snags on everything as you try and pivot into standing position so it'll go through the door. I had to do a lot of swearing to get it to cooperate.  ;D

But it's done now, which is a big step. Tomorrow is going to be dedicated to lifting up the old lino and tediously removing all the  old glue residue etc in preparation for tiling. Unlike the tub removal, this will not be a 'new' experience for me. I'm already fully aware how boring of a job it is.  ;)

My catch of the day                    -                                and the stubborn drain that refused to come along.

Haha! Well, the plan is to just put in a shower base and tile it all in. I'm not a bath guy so I'm going to make it the way I want it. :)

This is similar to the base and door unit I'll be using.
It gives you an idea of what'll fill that space.

Fishing on Lake Winnipeg, with lots of beer.

How's that beer bait working?

It didn't do much for catching fish. It did attract a park ranger though who gave us a ticket for drinking in public (we were sitting queitly, in chairs, on a dock... and the beer was light beer). He also confiscated two of our rods because apparently in the fine print of the "ice fishing" section of the fishing guide it states you're only allowed one rod per person in the water (unless you're ice fishing). We weren't ice fishing (and thus didn't read that part).

In summary, we're out 300$, two good rods (which will have to be replaced), 4 hours gas, all of our beer (opened or not), and we didn't catch shit. Oh, and another rod broke on us.

It's one of the most sour experiences I've ever had. Worst of all we weren't trying to get away with anything. We read the rules and regulations and thought we were doing everything right.

Another victory for the Canadian fun-police. Weekend successfully ruined. Next time I'll just sit at home and stare at a wall. I think that's still allowed.

Don't feel bad for asking though, I was going to gripe about it somewhere anyway. Not your fault. :(

Post by: Bondo on May 27, 2012, 04:41:24 PM
I could understand a fine for violating the rules but the confiscation of the rods and beer (as opposed to just saying you can't use them and must put them away) is just baffling to me. Is that really what the rules provide or did the ranger just want beer and rods for himself? I hear the border police can just steal your laptop for the hell of it.
Title: Re: Weekend
Post by: smirnoff on May 27, 2012, 04:49:01 PM
He poured all the beer out in front of us (to put that idea to rest I guess). He also included a very detailed description of the rods, reels and lures so if we decided to fight the ticket's in court we might have a chance of getting the equipment back.

Despite some rain from a typhoon, had a wonderful weekend in Shanghai. A couple of friends decided to take advantage of a long weekend and visit a friend that moved there with his family.  Lots of good food, 1 jazz club, 1 Mandarin Pop venue.  By far the highlight was catching this singer performing 1 set in the club...Blew me away even though I couldn't understand most of it (she sang 1 English song)

I moved into a new room in my parents house. Got a bigger bed and two Kallax shelves I had to assemble. Finally have space for all my books!

Also celebrated my dad's birthday yesterday by swimming in their newly renovated pool and playing The Metagame.

Looks good, Sam! How much do you like The Metagame?

Having access to a swimming pool is a huge perk. :)

The Metagame is a blast. It's like a family friendly Cards Against Humanity.

Went camping at Hume Lake, which is nestled between Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. Beautiful spot. Great little getaway.

We you allowed to have a campfire, or is that totally out of the question at this time of year? Or just too warm to be necessary...

Campfires were allowed. Just cool enough at night for it to feel nice.
