MOOOONNNN RIIIIVVVVEEERRRRRR

Sang well off key however it's one of many classic scenes in the chevy chase classic comedy Fletch.  It's when he is undercover in the hospital getting a paps-mere exam conducted and is caught by surprise as the doctor injects - to which chevy replies by singing MOOOOOOOOOONNNNN RIIIIIVVVVVEEEERRRRR....

I've been on the film kick for a minute because my mind's basically been swamped with so much work lately that I enjoy the down time.  It's not clearing my head though so I have working out to solve that issue.  I went through my deck of cards (430 reps in case yall were wonderin') in just under an hour...

I used to do it within a half hour but that was when I was in much better shape than I am; granted I have only gotten back into working out 6 weeks ago.  As promised though I'm going to continue working out for the 60 day period but as I mentioned before - any activity is considered working out (long walk, jump rope, kung fu, etc).  I'm being honest but just not a nut like I used to be with the excessive circuit training...

The rookie

If you haven't seen it and care to watch it at least once in your life - it's worth the humor.  This kid breaks his arm and when it heals the tendons heal too tight causing him to have a stellar pitching arm.  There are hurdles, love, friendship, and other twists but the film has more...

It's got Daniel Stern!  He steals the film with his wardrobe.  The off color shirts, the crazy side burns, his eccentric behavior, the sees, the way he chews, his plaid jackets, the way he waves.  I mean the man steals the movie.  From home alone to Celtic Pride to the Rookie - the man has provided comedic relief in every film he's acted in...

In fact I haven't seen him act in anything but comedic roles.  I just did a quick IMDB search and found he's acted in 60 films or so and when you see him in Little Monsters - you can't not appreciate what this actor's brought to the silver screen in his years of dedicated work...the man's as greasy as they get...

What is it with Cabbies?

They arguably have the worst job in the history of the world.  They get paid to sit in traffic and get told by people where to take them and so they hate the world and everyone in it trying to speed all over the place cutting people off without caution to any consequences of accidents and such...

I was driving my mother to work and two geese were crossing the road on a 4 lane (2 going 2 coming) road that ends in a culdesac.  I'm by the solid yellow and this cabby behind me gets bent out of shape - and decides to go around me from the right - only having to stop to the geese himself and then tried to cut me off almost hitting my car...I semi-lose my cool and punch it speeding around the geese and this donkey cab driver...i look in my rearview and he's pulled over 10 feet from where we were letting his passenger out...

I'm sure some cab drivers are cautious and care about their passengers, or themselves for that matter, but for the most party I just want The Office Linebacker - Terry Tate to just blast through the front side passenger door and drill the cabby out from the driver's door...then look at him and says something to the degree of a feet, pliers, a monkey wrench, shoestrings and anal beads...



Moral:  Do your job...and enjoy what you do...

Who's world is this?

The world is yours, the world is yours...until you get put in an institution for being out there and deranged.  I watched the film Shutter Island last night and I must say that the world seems a little darker.  It's a very strange and interesting story about love, loss, and everything in between.  The film directed by Scorsese is no raging bull - but in it's own right is a film to be enjoyed....

As you all know I don't do spoilers - except for movies I dub as shite and that's very rare - so please keep reading because nothing will be spoiled.  Leo is a WWII vet who becomes a deputy trying to solve a mystery on this Shutter Island where a patient has escaped.  The film takes place in nineteen fifty something and throughout the film we're reminded of the era...

The reason I saw the film is my cousin Dzl as he rarely suggests a good film for me to watch in the theater because so much junk has been on the silver screen.  However, he called me immediately after he watched this one and urged me to attend a showing because he wanted to discuss the film once we'd both seen it.  Just like the time we watched Revolver and stopped the film 15 minutes before the conclusion hit so we can start from the beginning and watch the story again to take it all in - Shutter Island (had I watched it on DVD) would have received the same treatment.

welcome back

It's been a minute since we've seen each other. A lot has been happening in the past two weeks. I wasn't really on vacation but I just had a significant amount of work that needed attention, however, we're back on track now. There was also quite a bit of fun in the middle there as well...

A lot to discuss - but the most significant advancement is the addition at my hip. I am now the proud new owner of a blackberry world edition. In fact I'm writing this one from my world. I was also bright enough to go about updating the firmware prior to performing a back up of my numbers...

So for the past week or so I've been going around retrieving numbers from friends and family. The best part is when family members who's numbers I still haven't gotten message me and I respond to them with the "Who's this?" reply - it's just funny to see the verbal silence that proceeds...



Moral: BACK IT UP!
