I got to see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Tuesday night with my beautiful wife. It was awesome. It was a pretty long movie, but I loved it. I am definitely going to need to watch it a few more times before I can really understand the fight scenes. They do such a good job of making the robot’s millions of pieces that it becomes difficult to see who is who during a real time fight scene. They left it wide open for a third movie too. During the previews they showed a preview for a new movie called 2012. I have heard all kinds of things regarding the year 2012 and it’ll be fun to see how far Hollywood runs with it.

Cartoons to Movies - SCORE!

For those of you unaware, I love cartoons. I grew up watching Transformers, He-man, Thundercats, and a little G.I. Joe. I never really stopped getting into new cartoons. From Fairly Odd Parents to Shirt Tails, Sponge Bob to the Snorks, Smurfs to Gummi Bears, Duck Tales and Rescue Rangers. About 9 months ago or so I started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. Thanks to my DVR I was able to watch the whole series. It’s about four nations, the earth, air, water, and fire nations. Certain people in these nations can “bend” the element of their nation. One person, called the Avatar, has the ability to bend all four. It’s good. Well, yesterday my sister was asking me what I’ve been watching on Netflix, and I told her that we have Over the Hedge and The Happening. She told me that The Happening was alright, but M. Night Shamalamalama has “a new movie coming out about a boy who can push air or something”. So back and forth we chatted till she sent me this I was freaking out a little bit.

We are in the process of cleaning out our office so that little man the sequel has a place of his very own. Now we are in a little bit of trouble because it was our "catch-all" room. You know that one place in the house that you throw everything when company shows up. Now that our new office is the first thing you see when you enter our house we are in need of a new "catch-all" space, because lets be honest, everyone needs a catch all. OK, maybe not Jeanie V. :). Well, we're about to go for a walk. Later.

Mmyum... Mmyum... Mmyum

Last week was our Vacation Bible School, and it was pretty amazing. Laura and I were a little concerned about how our son would take the long hours in the nursery while we volunteered. He did great. The last three days we would sneak down and get him a little early so he could be in the gym with us when we would all gather together and sing songs. He got a kick out of seeing all the kiddos dancing together and doing to motions. As a reward for him (and me), we had ice cream each night. Right now, anytime he sees something that looks really good he starts saying “mmyum…mmyum…mmyum…” So when he would see me walk to the fridge after the first night he would start up with the “mmyum…mmyum” Well, now he’s taking it out of the house. Yesterday at the grocery store Laura got a craving for cake (cravings are ok, she’s pregnant). While she was looking for a piece of cake, little man saw all the goodies and wanted everyone to know it, “mmyum… mmyum” A woman behind the counter said “May that baby have a C-O-O-K-I-E?” Laura of course said “yes.” I imagine this is not going to be the last time his cuteness affords him a cookie.

Searching the You Tube

I went looking for a video today on . I wanted to see if they had any fake workout videos done by the guys who make the movies like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Shaolin Soccer They always have these ridiculous abilities, and I just had this idea that watching them do a workout video that is humanly impossible would be hilarious. I was unsuccessful, so if you know of some please let me know.

On a side note I was very happy to see that they have full episodes of Voltron!

Crazy week

Ok, so this has been a pretty crazy week. We’ve lost three legends. Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson have all made an incredible impact on our culture, and they will be deeply missed. From Star Search to American Idol, Johnny Carson to Conan O’Brien, Charlie’s Angels to Alias, and Thriller by MJ to Thriller by the Filipino Prison gang , the effect they had is vast, and one of a kind. Death, whether expected, anticipated or a complete shock has a tendency of occurring to1 out of 1 people. These flesh suits do not last forever. Thankfully we are not merely flesh. We are all made of body and soul. One will die and one does not. The flesh is like the hour glass. The time you get to choose to live for the one who created you or to exist for yourself. To know that Jesus is the Son of God, died and rose again to be Savior to all and to you, -or to not believe. You get that choice. Just remember, like gravity, you can choose not to believe in it, but that doesn’t exempt you from the consequences of not believing in it.

In a follow up to yesterday’s blog about Hollywood making movies about old cartoons. What about the games? We’ve seen Super Mario Brothers, Resident Evil, and Doom make it (well, sort of). But what about Sim City, Dig Dug, and Duck Hunt? Ok it may be difficult to stretch anyone of those into even an hour long feature film, but I know they could make a spin off of “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?.” Think about it, she can steal the Sphinx, Big Ben, or maybe the new Dallas Cowboy Stadium. The hero will catch her henchmen and everything. There’s at least a trilogy somewhere in there. And don’t get me started on “Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?”. Yeah, I’m pretty sure this is going to bigger than Star Wars. I gotta invest in a red hat company. Come on Hollywood, Where is Carmen Sandiego?
