Among the Leaves and Vines

Today, at work, we painted pumpkins. There aren't a whole lot of places you can work that allows you to come in late, play around all day, then leave early, and have it be part of your salary. Good times. They will be donated to the Sun Flower House, and auctioned off. Mine's the one with face in the hoodie (if you can tell which that is).

GAH! Ok. My boring life doesn't need to be displayed on the internet. So i deleted the last post. I know i have said this before but i am going to try and stop posting personal things on this blog. Or rather thing that should be left for real life. I feel like i turned the corner here, so this time it might be for real. It's just sometimes it's my only way of getting through ya know? maybe i'm just a screwed up wuss.

Red Warrior

I gave blood today. First time. Before I got my blood taken, a girl that was trying to tell me how easy it was, passed out before my eyes. The nurses swarmed quickly around her to assist. They laid her out on an empty bed and let her come to. Needless to say, it kind of made me hessitate. Obviously, i survived to write another blog. Sorry. I felt really good about myself after i was finished. I will be going back in December.

movie reviews (quick ones, promise):
The Godfather - The iconic logo, the horse head in the bed, car bombs. The classic mobster movie that started it all. I finally understand all of the Family Guy references. It was a little long, but that is my only complaint. I hear the second one is even longer, but in general even better than the first. Pacino and Duvall are frightfully young in this film but, spectacular acting from him all of the players. You really grow to know, and like all of the characters, even if they are morally corrupt.


Pathfinder - Generic action blood-fest. Premise is, a boy who refuses to kill as a child, gets left behind in the Americas (before they were what we know today) where an Native American tribe raised him to be a "pathfinder". But when the Vikings come back in 15 years, he somehow becomes a stone-cold killer? There were some cool scenes especially in the beginning. But as the movie moved on, the "pathfinder" started using his "pathfinding skills?" to kill the Vikings. The costumes, sets and action scenes saved the movie for me... but not by much.

Heat - Great, gritty "cops and robbers" type movie with a star-studded cast. There were some sides stories i could have done without, and the 30 minutes to an hour too long. I figure if you get rid of the side stories, you fix both problems. Even though that gets rid of Natalie Portman's story. Basically, Al Pacino plays a detective who is good at his job, but is being foiled by a truly professional group of thieves led by Robert De Niro (with Val Kilmer).

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters For DVD - I wish it was as good as the earlier seasons, but somehow creators Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis have lost there touch. The movie is basically the show, normally 15 minutes, stretched into 80 minutes. Weird, random, off-beat humor with a little racism, metal music, rapping flies, a robot/ghost from the past/future, Plutonians, 2D aliens (Mooninites), roller-coasters, mad scientists, muscles, monsters, an exercise machine robot, fat old men wearing swear pants, rental properties, a watermelon alien, and of course a talking milkshake cup, box of fries and ball of raw meat. Oddly enough, you sort of learn more about the ATHF, but not really, and truly, does it matter? I still loved it of course.

I think the entire internet is broken. I can't sign into myspace, or post pictures on here. Thats my cue to stop.
