One Star At A Time

I guess it's been a while since I updated. Been busy, you know how it is. I've pretty well clinched a job at a Casino, though, which is pretty exciting. I'll be gettin' my dough from the High-Rollers, bonafide hustlin'. Pfft, yeah right. Still pretty stoked about it though. Apparently the tips are mad money.

Say you're involved a sword fight. What are you fighting with? Swords, of course. How about a gunfight? Guns seem like the most reasonable answer. A fistfight? Must be fists. So what were these guys fighting with, and how did someone lose a hand?

Hexiom Connect has stolen my soul! I'm not even joking. I see it when I close my eyes at night. Play, but be warned.

I'm sure by now everyone has heard of the Reel Geezers. I found them a few weeks ago but forgot to mention them. I absolutely love their perspective on modern movies, and it's funny how sometimes their opinions echo my own. I particularly enjoyed their critique of Superbad, but all of their stuff is pretty good, so go check 'em out.

And speaking of movies...

Pineapple Express (2008)
I pretty well loved this film. Most of the stuff that Judd Apatow has been involved with is pretty funny stuff, but none of it has made me laugh like the first 40 minutes of this movie. Seth Rogan, appearing here as Dale, is as funny as always. I've never seen James Franco in anything but a serious role, so I was a little worried about his performance in this movie. Thankfully he surprised me and was totally convincing and hilarious as perma-fried dope dealer Saul. My favourite part was probably the fight between Dale, Saul, and Red (played by Danny McBride). As far as plot is concerned, it got a little stupid towards the end, and if you don't like drug humour you're gonna hate this. Also it was a little violent, a lot more than I expected. But It was funny all the way through, and I really recommend that you see this flick.
(My Rating - 4 out of 5)

I'm going to end today's post with a video. Any Canadian should know these guys, but I was shocked to discover I don't actually own anything by them. Here's "Bobcaygeon" by The Tragically Hip. I remember hating this song when I was a kid. Kind of funny how your tastes mature with you... If you like this, and you've never heard it before, check out their song "Ahead By A Century"

P.S. I've uploaded a bunch of pictures on my Flickr account that I'm rather proud of, but won't be appearing on the other blog. Please, go have a look at them. It will make me feel good.
