Still Kickin'

C'mon Kubas, surely you have some thrilling debate stories to relay. Your harrowing journey of cases, novi, rebuttals, love, betrayal, and steamy trysts must have given you at least, oh, 300 words of solid posting material.

Anywho, I saw The Departed yesterday with Sam Walker. We were among about 6 other people at the 9:50 show, but we were still almost late because Sam refused to stop playing "The Battle for Middle Earth" demo at Best Buy until his army of cave trolls and goblin archers had crushed those impudent elves of Lothlorien. Man, you should have seen how distraught Sam was when he realized he wasn't authorized to build a "spider pit." In case you're wondering, the REAL reason we were at Best Buy was because I wanted to ask them about the availability of the Wii at their store. They told me no preorders, first come first serve. Let's see, the 19th is a...Sunday.

Oh man, that is pretty perfect timing for a campout. Set up tents out front on Saturday after dinner ($350 clutched firmly in hand [$250 for Wii, $50 for a game, hopfully $50 for another controller {although actually the game won't be as much of a neccesity as usual because the Wii comes packaged with Wii sports, which includes tennis, boxing, baseball, and bowling, all of which promise to be really badass on the Wii, but especially Tennis}]), party all night, walk in Sunday at 8 a.m. and claim my material object of choice. Or buy all of them so Logan can't have one, then only return them 29 days later.

But back to the serious movie and stuff: It was pretty good. 9:50 was probably too late a time, because I was kind of losing it near the end at around 12:20. Here's my advice for anyone who wants to go to this film:

If near the end of the movie you start thinking "You know what, I haven't seen nearly enough people get shot in the head today. I think I'll walk out," just be patient.

Actors to watch:
Alec Baldwin=Big badass
Jack Nicholson=Bigger badass
Mark Wahlberg=Biggest badass of them all

And Dr. Manhattan still loves the ladies. He's just sort of sick of the human race in general.

The elves will have their revenge.

Gonna be hard to get their revenge when my goblins have carved maggot holes in all their bellies and my mountain giants have stomped down their shiny tree houses.

Man, goblins are pretty sweet.

Controllers are gonna be $60 (for the controller + Nunchuk).

And it's going to be damn cold for parking-lot camping.

Ah, but haven't you seen the movies? The elves always win, and manage to come out with perfect hair.

there was a crazy amount of shooting in the face from like two feet away. i definately didn't wake up and think "man, i should watch a movie where everyone dies from close-range gunshot today" but it was still a cool movie. alec baldwin should not have been casted, tho. he's not BA enough for the irish gangsters.
