After Mom went to work, Dad and I, bored with what appeared to be a Judy Garland marathon on PBS decided to see a movie. Dad chose Timeline. It's not the cinematic acheivement of the year, but it was worth the price of admission. Actually, Dad paid for it so it was free to me, but it would have been a worthy expediture of $34.50 (or however much movies cost these days). My dad has read the book, and he said it wasn't a great adaptation, but it stands alone well. I haven't read the book, but I enjoyed it because (among other reasons) Anna Friel as a redhead more than does it for me. Brian Tyler's soundtrack bugged me because it's full of queues which sound just like the "turn around quick -- something dead and Nordic is about to break through a wall" parts of Bill Brown's score for Return To Castle Wolfenstein. I'm probably the only one who cares about such things. Have I complained about zombies in my livejournal yet? No? I'll spare you. I'll also spare you the links to my well-documented hatred toward the undead on BigBlackGlasses.com.
On the way back, I played for him some of the music I've been writing recently, and reaction was favorable (on the other hand, he is my father). Melancholy December will definitely be next month's MP3, and Robopublicans (inspired by recent events in California) will probably make it up there soon. Filthy Little Rodents might.
And now, some nice, embarrassing quizes:
|The haxor handle of SacredSpud is "Mister Bullet".|
Mister Bullet? Mister Friggin' Bullet?! That's just lame. I was totally Uncle Meat.
You are Juliet! The prettiest girl. And normally
a very obedient girl, then you go wild and
spontaneously (and secretly--- shhh!) marry
that Montague. You do die in the end, but for
Juliet: O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I'll no longer be a Capulet.
Which Romeo and Juliet character could you be?

This would be friggin' hilarious if any of y'all had known me better circa 1997.
