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

My Refection Has No Face

Lost... i don't know what to say. It doesn't get much better. I am floored and at a loss for words.
to see what i mean. go to Sledgeweb..

Lately, Heather and I have been spending a lot less time together. And this weekend she is going home to be with her family over Memorial Day. The ONE advantage that comes from it is i have a bunch of extra time to get back to designing. Of course, I sit here and waste my time watching TV and updating my iTunes (8276 songs!) I am working on the look of my blog now. Don't expect an update anytime soon though. I plan on bringing back my comic, and redesigning my website and MySpace soon too. I have also put off my tattoo for almost a month. Maybe I will get myself together and really be productive this weekend...

Who am I kidding, this weekend is going to be awful.

Costumed Mennis

The sun is shining on a mild 71 degree day.

It's hard to catch everyone up, when I haven't made a real post in a while. As i said before, my birthday was good. Birthday "gifts" where still streaming in this week, with the few other relatives that forgot what day my birthday actually was. But loot is loot, and I'm still very glad they didn't forget totally. I have already used a partical amount of the money to by some much needed clothing. I have been struggling with the clothing i have, because nothing fits right.
This week has been a good one in entertainment. And as entertaining as my friends are, i mean media wise. Transformers premeired a new "exculsive" trailer on yahoo.com, that made my underpants brown (if you get me). July 4th can't come soon enough. I saw some trailers for Bee-Movie, Jerry Seinfelds latest.
Spider-man 3, not suprisingly, maybe only 60% of what it had made in it's first week this week. Thats probably because everyone who went out to see it last week (everyone and there mom), told everyone yet to see it (people living under rocks) how much it sucked, so they didn't see it. Yes, Spider-man 3 was a like a ball-sack sandwich. If you don't know whats in it, it looks pretty tasty. But once you taste it, it tastes like a ball-sack. That's bad. Then you can't seem to get that taste of balls out of your mouth. And once they were in your mouth, you can't take that back. I have never tasted ball-sack, but i have tasted spider-man 3.
In other entertainment, Lost was another good episode. I wouldn't say thay have saved themselves from inpending TV doom, but the true fans will stick with them. There is only one more episode left this season, even though it's 2 hours long. After that, 3 season, 16 episodes each. With only 48 episodes left, i think i can make it to the end. Heroes also will be signing off for this season this upcoming week. Being that it's the best drama series that nbc has put out, of course i will be back next year.
With all of these finales, and the midseason line-up strugging to entertain us. Heather and I decided to do the Blockbuster through the mail service. So far, we rented Pan's Laberynth last weekend, and we have yet to see it's postal presence.

Really, thats all thats happening. Riley is getting big. She is a brat, chewing everything she can sick her teeth into. Including her favorite; Flesh. However, she is adorable and an impossiblity to stay angry with her. I am typing this at work, which should normally mean that work is slow, but this time it means that I am waiting on just about every employee to get back to me on the cards i have.

I am thinking i am going to start the comic back up again.

Time for beer and nachos. Come back soon.

Paradox

That was the best Lost episode yet. Crazy.
Other than Lost, things aren't going so well. I never know what to do to fix things.

Confusing Fantasy For Reality

My body is tired but my mind won't let it rest.

Life is tough. Don't ever let anyone else tell you otherwise. Things like work, love, friendship, health... they are all plagues of the soul. Ok, I admit, I am being cynical, but thats how I feel all of the time. Lately, I have felt really beside myself. There are just so many things racing around inside my head, mostly one thing, but I know I shouldn't think about it as much as I do. I am the typed of person that likes to get stuff finished, and be the best, I don't like to leave an open end, or an incomplete task laying before me. Unfortunately, I am also the type of person that can never seem to do things right. I know, I know I am bitching. It sounds like a classic case of "sandy vagina" syndrome. But the problem is, it's all I can think about. How I can't be good enough at work, how I am a shitty boyfriend. And the worst part of it is, maybe by other standards I might be pretty good... Designing cards is tough. You really want to stand out. Be "that guy". But it doesn't just fall into your lap like that does it. I can't think of good ideas, but they will come I'm sure. As for love, or whatever it is I'm feeling. I feel the same way; that no matter what I do, I'm not going to be exactly what "they" are looking for. I want to say I have everything I have always wanted; a good job, a girlfriend, close friends, my own place and a loving family that I don't have to see everyday. The problem is, it's all in shambles, constant disarray. It's like having a puzzle, in a box, sitting right in front of you. All the pieces are the same color, shape and size. All you have to do is put it together. Now you're fucked.

SHIT! I mean I need an outlet, but I know I need to watch what I say here. It's so easy to get a jaded opinion or an eavesdropper. I just want to be happy.

So Lost... Someone once told me "it's like a swift kick to the face." Almost every episode I think I can agree with that. As for this one, I feel like they gave you a huge run around about Jacks tattoos, only to truly answer you in the last 15 minutes about what they mean. I hate filler. I haven't checked up on my "nerd site," but I'm sure the "Losties" all felt the same.

I believe I am rambling now. I am getting a little run down, so maybe I can finally sleep. I am sorry about the bitching... I am going to try and make this blog slightly more "professional" from here on out.
