All The Hoochie Mamas Throw Your Hands Up! [Sep. 25th, 2004|12:43 am]
bryree came with us for DDR at the Joneses. Yay! It was good. We had fun with the new disc, and the eyeToy games on it, and the new songs.

Now my shins hate me, and I need to eat some real food, and then go to bed.

Country-Style Extra Pulp [Sep. 25th, 2004|11:45 pm]
Neal's house was taken over for Cara's wedding shower this afternoon, so while Jerry was off at work, I went to see Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow with him.

It was good! I liked it a lot. I've heard that some critics didn't like the plot much, but I thought it was great. I mean, it's nothing deep or terribly unexpected (though neither is it totally predictable), but it's a nice little adventure plot, and it's very true to its source material.

It is a very pulpy movie. We're talking country-style extra pulp with added calcium.

The visuals all worked really well; it wasn't anything earth-shattering, but I will bet that it ends up in a film textbook at some point for being the first all-bluescreen big movie. There were a lot of moments that looked a lot like a painting, except everything was in 3-D and moving. And the sepia-tone/blurry stuff fit in very well with the mood when they used it. Pretty pretty pretty.

Dex (Giovanni Ribisi's character) is my new hero.

I want a hover-truck and a ray gun.

Afterwards, we grabbed some pho and talked about web design stuff for Cognoscenti (a larp I play). In my copious free time, I'm going to see if I can help out adding some more features. He showed me how it works, and I sorta feel like I had a mini crash-cource in SQL and php, and that I could almost do website development things now (at least, if I had other people's code to crib from). SO we'll see.
