Ahhh! Lemon Harangue Pie!

Can you feel it? Sunday's almost here... Reminds me of that Carman song "Sunday's On the Way". I used to like Carman, back when I was a baby Christian. I went to a concert of his once, and I wished it would never end. I wanted to make a T-Shirt that said "Why can't life be one big Carman concert?" Of course, I have since come to grips with the fact that he's a mediocre singer with predominantly suspect theology, but still, I keep a spot in my heart for him. His song "Hunger For Holiness" is one of my all-time favorites, so on that song alone, I can't fully dismiss him...

Got a smattering of random things done today:

- Finally got my hair cut, though you won't be able to tell in the video I post... since I filmed the clip before said haircut took place. In the clip, I still have that unruly mop on my head.

- Signed up for a "Facebook" thingy today also, though I'm not exactly sure why. If you're on there and want to be my "friend", why, send me a link and I'll "accept" it! Still not too sure what the Facebook thing is all about, but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually. They probably have a section for old dudes like me.

- Bought a new hard drive for Crown Stealer at Fry's today too. Spent half the money I planned on spending, and got twice the size hard drive I wanted to get. So I guess I shouldn't complain. Vye assures me I made the right purchase, and I trust him completely.

- Finished the newsletter for Piranha. Still waiting to hear back from Miki about a title for the Interview Transcript. I think I'll make one up and send it, just to be done with it.

- Tweaked the blog appearance somewhat, as you might have noticed. New header art, a couple new "gadgets," etc.

- Hope to get some invoices out tonight, so I can get some $$ soon. First of the month, and all that.

Here's today's episode of These Are A Few of My Favorite Scenes. Went for a light-hearted clip today, picking the cop car chase scene from the Bill Murray comedy The Man Who Knew Too Little.



Probably doesn't make as much sense if you don't quite know the premise for the movie...

Sorry about the shaky, shoddy video editing. The lighting looks fine in the editor, but the final product always seems so dark. Plus, I need a new "Pirate" clip at the very beginning... you can barely see Captain Jack there. It just takes soooo loooong to import clips into the editor. But I'm willing to make that sacrifice for you! Provided I remember...

Made the mistake of sitting down with the family to watch Wanted a little while ago. Guess I should have thought to check what it was rated first, eh?! Needless to say, we made it about 10 minutes in before it was shut off. If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about...

The other Netflix I got was disc one of a series on wrestler Kurt Angle, who is (IMHO) the best professional wrestler of all time. It's a shame he wrestles for TNA now... I can't stand TNA. I've always wondered why WWE never put out a DVD for Kurt. They've done several for all the other big names, and even some for some of the "lesser" names... there must be a story behind that...

Yeah, I know, I know... "wrestling is fake/stupid," I get it, and I agree. Still, there's something about it that still mildly intrigues me, and keeps me at least checking online every week or so to see the latest industry news. I don't really watch it anymore, but I track it from a distance.

Well, I think I'll hit the road and prep for tomorrow. I've blogged for a solid month, and I haven't lost interest or motivation yet! Let's see what February holds. The trick is to pretend that I have regular readers that actually like to read this every day! It's easy for me to imagine... I've had an imaginary audience in my life for as long as I can remember...

Until tomorrow, all rise for the Honorable Judge Knott!

Busy day there, Dave :)

I loved the clip. It seems no matter how many extraordinarily great movies I watch, my favourite ones remain ones like this that I can watch time and again, and always leave with a smile.

PS What on earth did you have that camera on? Enquiring minds want to know...

I love Bill Murray. Matt and I would watch that movie over and over again. He hasn't been in a lot lately. Did you see Get Smart? Good movie. He makes a cameo in it.

Never saw Get Smart... guess I should rent it, eh? Post a clip on your blog for me!!!

Havah, I'm just holding my Flip Video out in front of me at arms' length, and hoping I stay in the frame, lol.
