The CGI in Avatar is pretty great, the one sequence that doesn't work is the first completely day time sequence on Pandora, though even that picks up about halfway through. The problem, visually, with the film, is that is does not use enough wideshots.

Anyhow, my Pet Peeves are friends who make you stand in line for them while they look at a magazine. There was a Seventeen Prom Magazine that I'm pretty sure had Selena on the cover. Now how will I know what my perfect dress will look like?

Littering. I hate people that throw even the smallest sweet wrapper on the floor. I think it says a lot about your character, all of it bad.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

You would enjoy the book Sick Puppy by Carl Hiaasen. The main character goes off on more than a few litterbugs.

HA! I havnt read it yet, but a mate lent it to me a couple of weeks ago. "You'll love it", he said. Judging from the blurb on amazon it looks like something i could empathise with.

Oh, me too.  I am amazed when I see people casually tossing a bag of fast food trash or a drink cup out of the car.  Or when they are walking down the street--somehow that seems even more amazing to me.  I see it a lot around here but it still shocks me.  I guess they need to bring back that crying Indian guy ad.

When people I intensely dislike in real life, and try to talk to as little as possible when I do have to have anything to do with them, friend me on Facebook.

i actually kinda like litter strewn about here and there - reminder of all the unnecessary consumption we participate in.

but i don't like it when people don't pick up their dog's shit
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
