1: The “weak link in the chain.” That’s what he called me.
2: Well, you are rather pathetic.


Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Hilarious! Seriously, funniest movie I’ve seen in a long time. It’s definitely got some stuff in it that’s not for everyone, but it’s not near as raunchy as 40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad, etc. And it’s way, way, way better. I can’t wait to see this one again.

One Missed Call

WHAT?

Pulp Fiction

Believe it or not, I’d never seen this movie in it’s entirety until this week. I’d always seen pieces, and never really cared that much for what I saw. Now I get it. As a whole, the movie is great. There are still parts I could do without, and Tarentino‘s dialog really gets on my nerves sometimes, but as a whole this is an excellent movie. I’m glad I finally gave it a chance.

The Hammer

We watched this movie because I’d read a lot of reviews that said it was really good, and I just couldn’t believe it. While it wasn’t a bad movie (and was much better than I originally expected), it wasn’t quite as good as the reviews made it out to be. It was mainly a good boxing story with Adam Carolla doing stand-up throughout. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the language, this would be a pretty good family movie. It was sweet, and sappy, and funny, and uplifting, but all in that sort of Family Channel way. This movie isn’t a complete waste of time, but I think it’d be pretty easy to find something better to spend your time watching.

Again, I realize I’m way behind the times. This album was released last summer, but I’m just recently getting around to giving it a good listen. And I’m really impressed. I’ve always liked Spoon’s music, but I’ve never been a super huge fan. I believe this is the first album I’ve actually owned, always having random tracks of past albums. I’m guessing that all the Spoon fans out there have already heard this album, but if you aren’t a Spoon fan, or haven’t ever listened to Spoon, I’d recommend giving them a try with this album. It just seems a lot more mature to me than the other stuff I’ve heard. Musically and lyrically. I’m not good at this album review stuff, so I’ll just say that I really like this album and think it’s worth giving a listen. I think you’ll be impressed, too.

Watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. For real.

I’ve been talking about cornhole a lot lately.

We’ve been playing it on the front lawn during our lunch breaks for the past few weeks.

It’s awesome.

BUT… some of you don’t know what it is.

This song will answer all of your questions:

1: There goes a thousand dollars.
2: Your shoes cost a thousand dollars?
1: That one did.

Again, I haven’t watched a movie this week.
I’ve been too busy watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Every night…

In case you’re interested, here are a few more trailers for some movies I’m interested in seeing:

Eagle Eye

This movie looks good to me, but even if it didn’t, Sheena would make me see it anyway because it has Shia LaBeouf in it.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I love David Fincher. He’s probably my favorite director. I’d see this whether it looked good or not. And, I’m sorry, but I like Brad Pitt.

The X-Files: I Want To Believe

I was never a super huge X-Files fan, although I always thought it was interesting. I did really liked the first movie, though, so I’m excited about this one.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Jason, who now lives in Philly, introduced me to this show.

I’m glad he did.

It is controversial, politically incorrect, crass, utterly ridiculous…
and hilarious.

It’s about three best friends who own a bar in Philly, and one of the guys’ sister is the bar tender. In the second season Danny DeVito joins the cast as the siblings’ father.

The pilot is said to have been shot for $86, which is pretty cool.

If you’re easily offended, you wouldn’t like this show.

I like to think of it as a cross between Arrested Development and South Park.

One of the main characters, Charlie, is super hilarious and easily my favorite character.
He reminds me a lot of my friend Blake.

If you tend to like tv shows that get canceled fairly quickly because they are too good for tv, then you’ll like this show.

Tomorrow I’m going to tell you guys about a show I’ve been watching lately. As in, I’ve watched the first two seasons over the past week and started season three last night. I have season three downloaded, but I watched season one and most of season two online. This is very cool to me. There are two sites that I’ve been using.


This is easily the better of the two sites. The quality is very good, the website is really nice, and they also have short clips from shows, if you just want to watch your favorite part. The only downside to this site is that there is advertising while viewing. In a 30 minute episode, there are three 30 second commercials disbursed. It’s a bit annoying, but it’s only 30 seconds at a time, so it comes and goes pretty quick. I haven’t done so yet, but you can also watch full movies.
hulu.com


This site has a really good selection of stuff. Again, I haven’t done it, but you can actually watch movies that are still in theaters, although the quality is very lacking. Although the quality of the tv shows isn’t quite as nice as on Hulu, the episodes on Surf the Channel are commercial-free, which is really nice. I watched most of the episodes of the show I’m currently into on this site.
surfthechannel.com

Most of you probably already knew about these sites, and if you didn’t, you probably don’t care or won’t use them. That’s fine. But if you missed an episode of your favorite show, or have been wanting to check out some show your coworkers have been going on and on about, this is an easy and free way to do it.

This is a cool music video showcasing lots of Mac applications.

Pretty sweet.

Thanks, Dave B.
