Why holywood needs to burn


The writers revere Melville’s original text, but their graphic novel-style version will change the structure. Gone is the first-person narration by the young seaman Ishmael, who observes how Ahab’s obsession with killing the great white whale overwhelms his good judgment as captain.

This change will allow them to depict the whale’s decimation of other ships prior to its encounter with Ahab’s Pequod, and Ahab will be depicted more as a charismatic leader than a brooding obsessive.

"Our vision isn’t your grandfather’s ‘Moby Dick,’ " Cooper said. "This is an opportunity to take a timeless classic and capitalize on the advances in visual effects to tell what at its core is an action-adventure revenge story."

Blew out my back

OMG am i in so much pain right now. I bent over this morning to pick up a sock, and my lower back spasmed.

Now its ALL tight and hard and i can't do any bending or stretching at all. I need to keep my back absolutely rigid.

Going to the Chiropractor in 15 minutes. Last year when this happened they were able to fix it up nicely in a few treatments. Lets hope that since i am going early in this process they can do something.

Got my grades

UGH. I leave the house at 6 AM and get home at 10:30 now.


Run Run Run

Last night, after my economics final, i went for my run. Last week it was a 2/4 *5, that is, 2 minutes of running, 4 minutes walking, and do that 5 times.

Last night however, it wasa 3/3 *5. Ooof. Its amazing how long a minute is when you stop and think about it. But dammit, I made it all the way, tho i was a sore dave at the end of it. But a good sore, ya know?

mapped it via google maps when i got home, holy crap, it was 2.33 miles i did.

The funeral was beautiful

So many people showed up to celebrate Kristin's life. Last night there must have been close to a thousand people at her wake. I kid not.

Today, the church was packed for the funeral, and the procession to the cemetery had at least 50 cars.

She was a loved woman, and will be deeply missed.


I will miss you dearly Kristin, you were a beautiful woman ,and the world is poorer for your passing.

Kiss your loved ones for me, you never know when they may be taken suddenly away from you.

Secretly replacing his legs with noodles. Lets see if he notices....

So, based on Yesterday's Events, and inspired by syringavulgaris I have decided to start running and generaly getting in shape.

Today was day 1, so it was a 2/4*5. 2 minutes run, 4 minute walk, repeat 5 times.

First cycle: Ok, not so bad
2nd Cycle: Hmmm, getting a bit warm
4th Cycle. Ok, kill me now......
5th cycle Gotta look good, running by my house and being seen by my wife and her friend...out of sight? Ok, collapse.

did a pre and post run stretch.

about 15 minutes later, after getting out of the shower, my legs were enveloped in this nice warm glow that very very nice. Kind if like having your legs wrapped in warm towels.

Death in the family.

Last night at 10:30 my brother in law, Ryan, called and asked that my wife and I come over to his house immediately. We did, to see an ambulance pulling away with Kristin, his wife, inside.

My wife stayed at the house to tend to the baby, 3 months old, and I went to the hospital to be with Ryan.

Parents arrived soon after, and the long wait ensued. It seems that Kristin started choking in her nap on the couch, and soon entered cardiac arrest. The cops were able to restart her, but she had been out for at least 10 minutes.

Around 1 Bridget came to the hospital, and Nancy, a friend of Kristin's mom started watching the baby. During this time Kristin, who was in the emergency ICU, had another heart attack, but they were able to stabilize her.

At 3 AM bridget and I went back to the house to take over baby watch. B napped, as it seems, so did I. At 6 ish the baby woke, and we fed him.

At 6:30 we got the call that Kristin, age 30, had died.

Please, Pray for Connor, Ryan and Kristin.

Funny cat story

At night, when I am eating dinner in the kitchen, the light over my head reflects off my watch, and makes a bright spot on the wall. One of our cats, Midnight, loves to chase this bright light around as it moves due to my moving of my arm.

In fact, she loves it so much, she often will sit in front of the wall whenever I am in the kitchen, waiting for the magic light to appear.

Last night, one of my wife's friends who is a mother of two young girls came over and was getting a tour of the house. When they came into the kitchen, the friend saw Midnight sitting in front of the wall, staring at it intently. She paused, looked at my wife, and asked "Has your cat been bad and is on timeout?"
