Michael Bay

Director of: Armageddon, Bad Boys, Transformers and now: 2012. Here’s the description: “Story follows an academic researcher who opens a portal into a parallel universe and makes contact with his double in order to stop an apocalypse foreseen by the ancient Mayans.” haha. A few people who know me know how this is funny.

Today’s Thoughts

First off, I really like the show “Cavemen” – a lot. It’s like it’s the best show I’ve ever seen – but I know that just isn’t possible.

In fact I’ve never even met anyone who likes it.
Nobody likes it. Well, I do.

Jamie asks, “would it still be funny if they aren’t cavemen?” and the answer is probably not.

Next, I must say that I hate in movies when everything is going great then suddenly the happy people get hit with a car from out of nowhere. In “Adaptation” when they’re backing up he says to his wife, “We’re finally out of debt and everything is going great.” then they get hit by a car and their life just gets destroyed. She uses the accident as an excuse to leave him.

Or that Brad Pitt movie where he is walking across the street after that girl then he gets hit by a huge truck or bus – or those volkswagen commercials.

It makes me associate peaceful times and happy times with an inevitable truck smashing into the scene out of nowhere.

Sometimes when I daydream they are great and then they end with a huge truck smashing into the windshield.

Freakin’ ruined my daydreams even…

That’s all the thoughts for now.

Scanner Darkly

What does a scanner see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does it see into me, into us? Clearly or darkly? I hope it sees clearly, because I can’t any longer see into myself. I see only murk. I hope for everyone’s sake the scanners do better. Because if the scanner sees only darkly, the way I do, then I’m cursed and cursed again. I’ll only wind up dead this way, knowing very little, and getting that little fragment wrong too.

If you don’t like reading, check out the movie.

Watch

My old boss said that you can tell everything about a guy by his watch. Of course, he owned a Rolex. I think that might be something people who own a Rolex say.

I just got a watch today – I hope his theory is right.

Reporting It Does

It just doesn’t makes sense. This sign here:

On the other side it reads “Crime doesn’t pay” – but you don’t see that until you leave. So when you walk in you see this weird yoda-ish “Reporting It Does” saying that makes no sense.

I tried to talk to the guy behind the counter about it but he didn’t want to talk to me.

Plans

How do I know that this year I will NOT destroy our lawn while Jamie is gone?
Easy… by planning.
