Friday in Hell, Saturday Comes Heaven.

Oh, Friday.
The Fridays have been coming faster lately. The weeks fly by. I'm not exactly sure what i have to look forward to when the weekends get here, but at least it's not work.

Today may as well be part of the weekend based upon the fact that I did pretty much nothing up to this point.

I researched 1-18-08 or whatever they are calling it now. I looks like It's going to called Overnight and it is a brand new monster. Everyone is creating fantistic storys and trying to ruin the plot. It looks like keeping the movie a big secret has actually back fired and made everyone super curious about the story. To the point where people probably wouldn't have gave a shit about a movie entitled "Cheese" filming in Central Park, no matter how awesome it looked.

Sadly enough i am a victim of this odd phenomenon that makes us want to know more. I get less tied up in trying to "make something out of nothing", but i will read everyone elses. Here are a few good examples of sites i have been looking at:
Cloverfield: What We Know So Far - My favorite. Based off of mostly speculation. Run by a cute girl.
Cloverfield Clues - This guy knows what J.J. Abrams ass smells like he does so much research.
http://1-18-08.livejournal.com/ - The most reasonable blogger. Thats why it's not as fun.

It's been a week since i traded in my Pa Licence and became officially pinned to Missouri. I looked a lot different back then. =) I have been concidering drivng home again for Christmas. Heather said she would be interested in "road tripping it" and if her, and possibly more people joyed in on the "fun". It would certainly save on cost. But would it be worth another 17 hours in the car, with possible nasty weather, and would we have enough room for luggage and hopefully lots of gifts on the way back? It's hard to think of winter and Christmas, when it feels like hell on earth outdoors. I look forward to going home again though.

In other news, Riley is getting spay today. Poor girl. I love that dog. I would pretty much do anything for her. I assume everything is going according to plan. Tomorrow, i will be at the airport taking Bob and Lauren, which starts my one week stint with Donte their rottweiler. He and I are good buddies so it should be a good time. Living a week with him will give me a good idea what it will be like to actually have a dog myself... and what it would be like to live on the Kansas side... neat.

Textures. For work, our team (mostly just Tony and I), when they have time, we are compiling textures to add to our work in Photoshop. So i have been dragging a piece of paper on the ground all morning, sanding down images, basically looking like a crazy person. But it's something to do.

I'm not sure what the rest of my agenda is looking like today. Only time will tell.

Cloaked

Ok, a hodge-podge of stuff today:

The WWF (the World Wildlife Foundation, not Wrestling) often seems to come up with ingenius advertising. This one I think is definately along those lines:


As i promised, i am going to post briefly on the movie trailer that is making more waves then half of the summer blockbusters. 1-18-08 (or Cloverfield or The Parasite). Click the link for the trailer page. Notice a lack of title anywhere. The trailer leaves you feeling the same way. What the public does KNOW is the movie is by J.J. Abrams. He is the dude who brought us such masterpieces such as LOST!, Alias, MI:III and the new Star Trek film. Drew Goddard who was worked with Abrams before is writing. The director, Matt Reeves, did... Felicity. OK. It pretty much has to be a "monster movie." The trailer makes that pretty obvious. A website emerged soon after the trailer was premiered with the Transformers movie. It has been updated with pictures that are along the same lines as the trailer. I have to mention the nice action scripting on the site. Also the site, Ethan Haas Was Right, which hasn't been officially linked to the movie but has something to do with a city being destroyed and these futuristic looking puzzles that unlock movies of a man talking about a "resistance." If these are linked in any way i am going to say it is an alien invasion movie. I'm 3 puzzles in. Already people are nerding out and making ridiculous theories without really knowing anything solid. Flipping the pictures on the official site, reading unto the hidden videos on the puzzle site. Speculations that the movie will be film completely on a "handheld", from a first person point-of-view makes sense, based on the fact that this is how the trailer was filmed. Also people are saying it's based on the H.P. Lovecraft Cthulhu. I think the nerds just get a hard-on over this character. I sorta get a semi. But i'm not going to count on that. Thats all i will post on this for now. All this mystery gives me something to do while Lost is off the air.


I wish this were a joke. Well, it is a joke, it's just not fake. To add insult to injury, thats Jason Lee in the corner as David Seville, and Dave Cross is in it too. If the poster holds true, i hear the movie starts out in Compton with a drive-by shooting, where the Chipmunks are caught up in the crazy world of cocaine and gang wars.

365 Portraits. I know i have posted this already. But added to the list of portraits, is my friend Kristen. And she looks fantastic.

Wii Fitness and wii Balance board it tells you your BMI and changes your Mii to fit the discription. I might just have to get this. The board is pretty like the Wii. See ya gym, video games are taking your spot.

I actually have something to look forward to when i get home today. I have some Vegetarian chili cooking on my new crockpot. I'll let you know how it turns out.

love, Josh
