  1. I saw Rescue Dawn, overall it was decent, the jungle scenes were classic Herzog, but the Top Gun ending kind of ruined it for me.
  2. Arizona Arkansas California Delaware Louisiana Maryland Massachusetts Missouri Nebraska New Jersey New Mexico New York North Carolina Oklahoma South Carolina Tennessee Texas Virginia (and D.C.) Yep.
  3. The anarcho-syndicalist scene in Holy Grail is probably the most underrated part of the movie (and it happens to be my favorite scene as well )... ARTHUR: I am your king! OLD WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you. ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings. OLD WOMAN: Well, how did you become king, then? ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held Excalibur aloft from the bosom of the water to signify by Divine Providence ... that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur ... That is why I am your king! DENNIS: Look, strange women lying on their backs in ponds handing out swords ... that's no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. ARTHUR: Be quiet! DENNIS: You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you! ARTHUR: Shut up! DENNIS: I mean, if I went around saying I was an Emperor because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, people would put me away!
  4. Currently reading The Crying of Lot 49 by, Thomas Pynchon
  5. Ratatouille I suppose the disappointment that was Cars, followed by my discovery of auteurs such as Godard and Fellini disillusioned me from Pixar for a while, but Ratatouille proved to be a return to form on par with Finding Nemo. Hell, I think it was better than Nemo. The story of Ratatouille sets it apart as a minority in American multiplexes this summer for it's sincerity (lookin' at you Live Free or Die Hard). Nary a pop culture reference in sight, the story and characters feel as fresh as a crisp croissant from a Parisian bakery. In addition, Peter O'Toole's character as the delightfully pretentious food critic is a pure treat. Needless to say, with Pixar, you can expect to see some amazing visuals. Paris is breath-taking and filled to the brim with many subtle sight gags. Brad Bird's signature action sequences are top notch as well, but the most important visual achievement is the food. From spotless kitchens to decaying garbage heaps, food has never been so realistically rendered in CGI before. The O'Toole character in me wants to dismiss Ratatouille as a piece of cinéma commercial manufactured by l'avarice de la bourgeoisie Hollywood, but I know better than that. Pixar may have merged with Disney, but it is still comprised of true visionaries that create consistant, even autueristic, works of entertainment for people of all ages. Viva la Pixar! 8.5/10.
  6. I believe these are all ROCK songs... 1. Hard as a Rock - AC DC 2. Worry Rock - Green Day 3. Turn to Stone - Black Sabbath 4. You Make Me Rock Hard - KISS 5. Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
  7. Catch-22 by, Joseph Heller, I tried reading it early in the school year, but I got lost trying to keep up with all of the characters.
  8. Between this and the finger, I think I now have sufficient reasoning to stay away from Wendys' chili.
  9. I found a two-year-old gift certificate worth $25 for our local bookstore. The Unbearable Lightness of Being by, Milan Kundera - $13.95 A Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man by, James Joyce - $4.99 It will take me forever to catch up to these.
  10. The middle school I attended was Dunbar, which is a registered historic location for once being the major African-American high school/college in Little Rock before the Little Rock Nine integration at Central: Therefore, the next logical step would have been to attend the uber-historical Central High: But instead I chose little Parkview Magnet: The End.
  11. Chain: Domino's (The only large pizza chains in Little Rock are Domino's, Pizza Hut and the godawful CiCi's Pizza). Local: Damgoode Pies
