And I Feel Fine

This past weekend, I went out and saw the disaster-porn flick 2012. I know, I know… but I have some gift cards to use up, and it looked like pretty eye candy. Well, if you consider the end of the planet to be eye candy… which in the hands of Roland Emmerich [...]

Doubting Faith In Dog

Since N got back, we’re trying to catch up on DVDs that we both want to watch. While she was gone, I watched a lot of noisy, violent movies, but now it’s back to the dramatic quieter flicks.
