The Fall Guy

Officially, i am house and dog sitting now. So far, so good.

Things I've learned about having a dog (Part one):
- constant love.
- can't eat without them wanting some too.
- it takes twice as long to finish something.
- you have to think about what kind of trouble they can get into before they get into it.

I'm watching Hackers, which was made in 1995. It depicts a grossly inaccurate world of hacking... probably because it was made in 1995. In contrast, hacking should be relatively non-visual, where as these kind of movies show animated mainframes and bullshit computer jargon that just sounds cool. LOL pretty much everything dealing with technology is over-the-top sci-fi craziness. Cheesy as hell. The movie is full of product placement of Quicksilver, Suzuki, and Nokia. The movie is basically a bunch of sub-par actors running rollerblading around to techno and other bad 90's tunes music looking like an corporate vision of ravers and goth kids. However, it is probably one of the best movies of the 90's (when i first saw it) and somehow even today. Visually beautiful, and fun to watch. Also, it features a smokin Angelina Jolie.

Ouch, Linkin Park. Apparently, people where right when they said all the songs sound the same.
