I’m A Little Behind

mindofbirdman

I have all of these things to write about, but no time to write them. I guess I need to first tell you that Float Your Fanny is next weekend and we just realized that we need to redesign and rebuild the raft. No big deal, except that Gadget and I only have Friday to do it. I guess we should have looked at the depth of the river before committing to a 600+ pound raft. Oh well, we are going to have one sweet floating island for this summer, and a sleek, shallow water vessel for being river pirates. Those Somalis ain’t got nothing on us.

So far we have received $50 from Gadget and my mom to put towards the raft, but that won’t even cover the cost of building it, let alone the $70 it will cost to enter us all in it. Actually, Mom’s was to sponsor the girl’s Great Strides walk, but we have priorities you know.

This looks pretty good, huh? Too bad we can't use it. :(

I know that you don’t have any money, but I know that you still want to help, so I’ve put in a little button here for you to click on. It will take you to the magical land of Paypalia, where you can send monetary units via your email address or credit cards or something. I actually don’t know where it comes from, but I know that when my wallet is empty I can still buy stuff on ebay. I hope the girls like powdered eggs and milk. Continue reading

Fox Friday – Parental Guidance

Capture

You know what? Fuck you, Fox. Why’d you have to make me get all weepy with this feel-good comedy about grandparents struggling to be a relevant part of their grandkid’s lives? I’m just kidding. I like getting all nostalgic and emotional. It’s cleanses my essence, and we all know how dirty that is.

Put a comment in here and win this movie. Maybe. If you're the only comment you will.

Now I’m going to do something I’ve never done. I’m going to tell you that this was a very heartwarming flick, and that I really did enjoy watching it. I’m also going to leave it at that and copy some of the press release in here to tell you about the movie, and urge you to watch it. Especially if you are one of my generation. You know, with parents who got pregnant in their early 20’s or late teens, and just raised you as best they could with what they had. No baby monitors, Google, or car seats for that matter. Just instinct, homemade wine, and guts. By guts I mean threatening and sometimes having to follow through when you call their bluff. Continue reading

Fox Friday On A Wednesday – Lego Star Wars – The Empire Strikes Out (and giveaway)

 

I was surprised and a little relieved to find two movies from Fox on the doorstep this week. I figured after my review of 30 Nights Of Paranormal Activity With The Devil Inside The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, that they would never let me watch, let alone review another film of theirs. I was wrong. When Crystal said that they wanted honest reviews, I guess she wasn’t lying.

This will go to a random commenter. If nobody comments, then I guess it stays with meeeeee!

This will go to a random commenter. If nobody comments, then I guess it stays with me! Oh, there’s a DVD in there too.

Luckily for me, I don’t need to find out how many pans I’m allowed before I get cut off. Well not yet, anyhow. This little short was gratifying to say the least. I really got a kick out of it and watched it twice, because I wanted to make sure I caught the whole thing. All 22 minutes of it. Continue reading

Fox Friday – 30 Nights Of Paranormal Activity With The Devil Inside The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Yep. I watched and reviewed this movie. First, if you haven’t watched the movie, check out the trailer.

It doesn’t look horrible, right? Maybe a bit dumb, but all of those parody movies look foolish to the average person.

I loved all of the Scary Movies that I have seen, which were 1,2, and 3, but I understand that to a lot of people they are asinine and idiotic. Sometimes I just want to veg out and watch some mindless, over the top humour.

Well, mindless and over the top, this might have been. Humourous, not at all. If it wasn’t so filthy, kids might have liked it, because they aren’t evolved enough to see past the failed attempts at potty talk, and brief appearances of celebrity lookalikes. Continue reading

Fox Friday – Ice Age: Continental Drift

(This review contains adult themes)

T and I watched this the other day and I loved it. It was just the two of us here, and I felt bad that she didn’t have anyone to play with, so I said “Hey, do you want to watch a movie with me?”

T: “What movie?”

Me: “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” I had received it weeks ago and hadn’t had a chance to watch it, so I thought this would be a good chance to get some one on one time with her, and be able to review the movie.

T: “I’ve already seen it.”

I started to feel sad, because it seemed she would rather sit by herself than watch something with me.

T: “It was really good. I would watch it again.”
