Fantastic Four, Gas

Saw Fantastic Four with Joe. Not as bad as I’d thought. Pretty good actually, even though I saw a ton of inconsistancies that I usually overlook. Not the best of the summer that I have seen so far, but then I’ve only seen about 4 movies so far. Still gotta see War of the Worlds. I swear, Dakota Fanning has to be one of the best actresses right now. And here I am writing aimlessly.

Today was a slow day.. slowest all week. I worked with Roy again today until about 5:15ish, and then I went home. I spoke to no one online, because it appears that on this particular Friday, I’m about the only one that doesn’t have anything going on today. Ah well.

So, Gas prices are $2.49/gallon of unleaded. You think that’ll stop me from headin’ to South Bend next week? Not likely!

And in all actuallity, that last post was not even vague at all. It just requires a bit of knowledge that a few people have, but most do not. Don’t feel bad if you don’t get it, it’s alright. Just go along with it.

Jill and For Your Consideration

Post Script to yesterday’s post. I had a marvelous time talking to Jill for well over four hours during and after working on ProCPR. That truly was a great conversation. Not only was it full of substance, but it felt like we both really learned something from it, and there was growth there as we spoke and she decidedly told me that CSI is the best show ever. I’ve never seen CSI, but I have seen The X-Files. Don’t know what that means, but I’m sure it’s cool.

Oh and before I forget, as in the last post, be funny or don’t be funny, but funny is cooler.

And last but not least on my radar to inform you of something really quite cool. Christopher Guest is the man behind such mockumentaries as Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, and my favorite: A Mighty Wind. Well, I’ve just read about the next one, and I’m excited to see how it works. Pat has a big idea for one that would be hilarious to do.. maybe one day.

Here’s what they’re doing next:

Instead Ricky Gervais will… get this for coolness… be taking a role alongside ‘The Christopher Guest Players’ in Guest’s upcoming film For Your Consideration. How brilliant? The man who took the mockumentary made famous by Guest and co and ran with it to new heights of success is starring in what is said to be the master of the sub-genre’s last ‘mockumentary’ feature.

Details of the project are said to be closely guarded but rumour has it, it will involve a documentary crew following an actor and his “entourage” from the point of completing a movie right up to his campaigning to win an Academy Award for said role, despite the fact that it wasn’t a worthy performance.(FilmRot.com)

The Last Week

What’s it been… about a week? That week went so fast!

Last Wednesday: Millennium Park.. Pretty fun. Swimming and Volleyball and food.
Thursday: St. Thomas had Theology on Tap at 7:30 with Dr. Dave DenBraber speaking. We went to it. It was absolutely awesome. That guy is on fire for the Lord.
Friday:A Night of Worship at the Kreslin’s!!! Holy cow! Started late, at about 7:30 and went straight up until 10. That was one incredible evening!
Saturday: Rachel Z’s open house followed by Guy’s Night. Good food at Rachel’s, and at Guy’s Night we grilled hot dogs and played some cards and some Halo 2. I’m very bad at Halo 2.
Sunday: Antioch in Muskegon was an excellent meeting about suffering and doing something about it.
Monday: Went downtown to see the Fireworks. It was raining, but we stuck it out and the fireworks were pretty good.
Tuesday: Worked with Roy on ProCPR
Wednesday: Worked with Roy on ProCPR.. ..tonight at Connect is the next topic in the “Assault Against the Family” series of the summer. Should be good.

More later.. leave comments… be funny. Laugh a little… do you some good.

This Week

What a week it’s been!

The Holy Cross Summer Conference: Saturday to Sunday.. I don’t know if I mentioned this in my previous entry, but if not, here it is: I met someone there that I have been talking to online for a long time. Jill. She’s very cool, as I mentioned. I also met Jen, Will, Meryl, and many other faces that I’m so bad with names that I either don’t know their name, or never learned it. Props to all of you, though, as in less than 48 hours you have shown your quality. I stayed up until 3am Saturday night talking to Jill, and she stayed up til 7 because she had to monitor the halls incase anyone needed anything.

Grand Haven: Monday. After working on ProCPR, I went to Grand Haven with Julie and Scott, and met up with Tyler, Mike, Maria, Lindsey and Addison. That was cool too. Just sat and talked and then went to Applebee’s.

Rick’s house on Tuesday, working on the business. We’re getting so close to launching this thing, I can feel it. The design is really starting to come together nicely, and I’m starting to be happy with it for the first time since I initially designed it nearly a year ago. It’s far above version 1 of the site design that I made. Paula, Jeannette, Sarah, Nick and Pat showed up while we were working on it. We watched some hilarious videos on http://www.tallyhall.com

Which brings us to today’s adventures: they haven’t yet begun.
The rest of the week is as follows:

Tonight: Millennium Park: Hilarity ensues
Thursday: Antioch GR.. St. Thomas has Theology on Tap at 7:30 with Dr. Dave DenBraber speaking, and I think it’d be cool to go to that, but we’ll see.
Friday: A Night of Worship at the Kreslin’s followed by possible campout!
Saturday: Rachel Z’s open house followed by Guy’s Night
Sunday: Antioch in Muskegon
