Wall-E

Tonight, being home alone, I took myself out to dinner and to a movie. Tonight’s feature is a Pixar Studio’s animated film called “Wall-E.” It was a cute movie – to sit back and enjoy the fun animation that went into this film. The short that preceeded the film was cute. If you can enjoy story telling without much dialogue then you will enjoy this film. Pixar has another HIT on its hands. They have shown that they can produce such wonderful material.

I have to say that going to the movies at the AMC theatre here is a very quiet experience. We do not get the crowds that most theatres get at the old Forum space. The theatre tonight was not full but there were more people seeing this movie than usual.

This was a cute tale of how the earth has become a wasteland of garbage and humans are traveling the galaxy on star-cruise ships – ours was called the AXIOM. A probe ship was sent out to collect living specimens that would direct the ship to return to earth and recolonize. There was a really interesting nod to 2001 A Space Odyssey with the auto pilot character on the ship, in a “Hal” like role. Eve collects a plant specimen that was given to her by Wall-E. And the whole rest of the movie was the aquisition of the plant that has to be set into the Holo-system so that the ship would be autopiloted back to earth some 700 plus years later.

This little adventure was funny and sad and happy all at the same time. You can take away many messages from the film and I will leave that to you to divine. A good time was had by all tonight.

Author 'devastated' at Potter end

JK Rowling

The final Harry Potter book is released later this month

Author JK Rowling has said she felt euphoric but “devastated” as she penned the last words of the final Harry Potter book, The Deathly Hallows. Speaking on Jonathan Ross’ chat show, she said: “When I finished one chapter near the end I absolutely howled.”

She also revealed the character of Harry was “totally imaginary” and not based on anyone else, while Ron Weasley was a lot like her oldest friend Sean.

The interview was broadcast on BBC One on Friday night.

‘Sobbing’

She was in a hotel room alone as she finished writing the book.

“I was sobbing my heart out, I downed half a bottle of champagne from the mini bar in one and went home with mascara all over my face, that was really tough,” she said.

When asked about whether “scar” was the last word in the book as had been reported, she said: “Scar? It was so for ages, and now it’s not. Scar is quite near the end, but it’s not the last word.”

She also said it had been a “a hell of an achievement” to keep the cast of all the Potter films British.

Nearly 1.6 million copies of the final Harry Potter book have been pre-ordered online ahead of its release on 21 July.

The latest film in the series, The Order of the Phoenix, had its European premiere in London on Tuesday.

The film opens worldwide from 11 July.

Don't force your man to go shopping with you

Wal*Mart: Roswell, NM.

Seen over at: The Mouse House

This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.

DON’T TAKE ME IF I DON’T WANT TO GO………..

After Mr. and Mrs. Fenton retired, Mrs. Fenton insisted her
husband accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart.

Unfortunately, Mr. Fenton was like most men–he found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out.

Equally unfortunately, Mrs. Fenton was like most women–she loved to browse. One day Mrs. Fenton received the following letter from her local Wal-Mart.

Dear Mrs. Fenton,
Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may be forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, “Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away.”

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M’s on layaway.

6. September 14: Moved a “CAUTION – WET FLOOR” sign to a carpeted area.

7. September 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he’d invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.

8. September 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, “Why can’t you people just leave me alone?”

9. October 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10. November 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. December 3: Darted around the store suspiciously whileloudly humming the ” Mission Impossible” theme.

12. December 6: In the auto department, he practiced his“Madonna look” by using different sizes of funnels.

13. December 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled “PICK ME! PICK ME!”

14. December 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed “OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!”

And last, but not least …

15. December 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, “Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here!”

Regards,
Walmart

What a Mess!!! Oscars 2007

oscarnight.jpg

3 hours – 48 minutes on Canadian Feed Television. What a mess of a broadcast. We lost the feed internationally at 48 minutes into the broadcast for 5 minutes. Ellen was a good host, but I have to say this telecast was a bit disjointed. It was, for me, all over the place, it was messy and sloppy. Those up the aisle “try to be funny” moment with Scorcese and Eastwood were unnecessary.

Not to mention all those God Damned “montages” and “preformance art!” Waste of time… Ben Mulroney said on CTV news that she was a great host, that she brought her tv show persona to the telecast, which I can agree with, but some of the humor was stupid. The whole pijama, that’s our show, and the vacuum bit before Resse Witherspoon took the stage was insulting and not funny. I found that to be unnecessary – yes, the show was running LOOONG, but the vacuum was unnecessary!

There were many upsets tonight and my ballot had more X’s than Checks! Eddie Murphy did not win, Alan Arkin snuk in there, what an upset after that entire Barbara Walter’s build up to the show!! What an upset. He should have won.

Kiss my Ass Simon Cowell, Look Jennifer won the OSCAR, HAHAHAHAH Who’s yer daddy!!! Fantabulous. And the performance of the Dream Girls was incredible. And wouldn’t you know it, Forest Whitaker really had words to share, his speech was amazing. Mrs. Mirren, what a joy, as the Queen.

Three incredible movies. Three incredible winners.

I really did not get into Little Miss Sunshine, yet she won a few awards. Los Tres Amigos won a slew of awards across the board for Pan’s Labrynth, The Lives of Others, and The Blood of Yingzhou District.

And finally Melissa Etheridge won for “I need to wake up” and Mr. Vice President Al Gore for An Inconvenient Truth. It was great to see her perform. I love Melissa, and her music so much, she is a true survivor. I think Leonardo was hoping that Mr. Vice President would have announced his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States, alas, he did not. But Will he later, is the question???

I enjoyed seeing the stars and watching the Oscars, but I think that maybe they need to resurrect Billy Crystal to host from now on. Virgins in the driver seat seem to have a handicap, and the fact that here they only gave a 3 hour block for the telecast and it ran 3 hours 48 minutes. Ellen did ok, but I was expecting a more polished presentation. It was a disappointment.

But we must mention that a GAY WOMAN hosted the Oscars and the Lesbians were well represented tonight !!!! A proud moment for the LGBT Community at large. We have arrived and we hosted the 79th Annual Academy Awards.

Now for the Results … The Bold winners were my choices on my ballot, the regular print winners – were “winners.”

Tonight is Oscar’s Night

I got out of bed this afternoon, singing Billy Crystal…

“Oh, it’s a Wonderful night for the Oscars, Oscar Oscar… Who will win?”

I’m so silly. I have the next portion of the journey ready to post, from last night’s reading. And I had a serious prayer jam session around 5 a.m. this morning, just me and the Almighty, it was divine.

See you after the Oscars…

Gotta get my tux out of the closet for the festivities…

NOOOT!!!

Laugh your Ass off Funny !!!

I saw a video over on “Bill In Exile” earlier and I posted that video over on My Other Blog, you can find that link HERE. But secondly, at the top of my page is a video of Lewis Black talking about Homeland Security. If you want to laugh your ass off – and fall out of your chair, you MUST go listen to this 8 minute clip. The Evolutions of Jeremiah check it out.

Courtesy of Mr. Lewis Black…

“They have the color coding like we are in fucking elementary school, there’s no need for that. Because every time they tell us the color code, they have to explain it to us. They should just eliminate them. There should be THREE levels of Security”

  1. JESUS CHRIST
  2. GOD DAMMIT
  3. FUCK ME !!!

 

I laughed my ass off and almost fell out of my chair listening to Mr. Black.
