Perfect for that lull...

Just saw this tonight and it may be the best trailer I've seen in a long time, other than this and of course this (which I didn't get to see in the theatre)...

Never noticed it before...

 
Something caught my ear the other day whilst watching a movie. I'd seen it several times over the years, having it on both VHS from somewhen, as well as on DVD. A lot of military portrayed in the movie, but, it being science-fiction, I hadn't really paid much attention. From just watching it the first time, way back, I knew that Steve is a pilot and had applied to NASA, but was turned down. This time, I caught in dialogue, that he introduces himself as ... US Marine Corps. Later on, I see the wings on his chest. He also introduces himself a second time as US Marine Corps. I just found it odd.

(I think it makes a big difference watching a movie on a laptop that is right in front of your face, as opposed to on a tv screen, or in a movie theatre. Sure, you might catch things, but then you also miss out on the all around movie experience.)

Funny I was thinking that god's been calling back his choir as of late ...
(YouTube views 683 and then 753 by the time I posted this.)

David Bowie, Lemmy, Natalie Cole, Scott Weiland...

The mountain...

 
You see before you a mountain. Do you (a) say to yourself, "I'm going to climb that mountain one day.", (b) simply acknowledge the fact that it is a mountain, and marvel at its beauty, or (c) climb the mountain.

No go...


My passport expires in 2017. The whole point of wasting money on the damn thing was so that I would actually go somewhere so that I wouldn't have wasted money on the damn thing. So far, no go. (See what I did there?) I guess when I was younger, I just figured that I would go places. I got my first passport to go on a high school trip to France. Two weeks. You had to get a new one issued every five years, so I did that. I went on two vacations in the 90s. After that.. nothing. And then on a whim, I decided to splurge on the new one in 2012, because ... I figured I was going places. And then more twists and turns in life (ie having to borrow more money to pay for things that weren't expected nor planned on) laid a heavy hand on any thoughts of travel. Last year it was the hot water tank that died, and then in December the washer and dryer needed to be replaced. Still haven't had the dental work done that the dentist recommended three years ago. Things don't look very promising. Oh... the other point of getting a new passport was the off-chance that I would get out to meet a fellow blogger.

Wrinkles...

 
Someone said to me today that I should use moisturizer on my face because ... look at the wrinkles, especially under your eyes. My response? The body is just a shell we die in.
