Future Plans

I’ve never been able to picture myself as an old man – 70, 80, on from there. I just figure with my poor eating, lack of sun, and lack of exercise, I’ll be lucky to make it to 50.

If, by some chance, I do make it to that point, I know what I want to do: sing pop songs in a choir with other people my own age.

I’m watching the movie Young at Heart, and I’m not even done with it and it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a documentary about a group of people in their 80’s and beyond singing songs by The Clash, The Ramones, James Brown, Sinead O’Connor, and Coldplay, and it’s absolutely a fantastic thing to watch. These folks are having a ton of fun, and the movie is funny, encouraging, challenging, and touching. I know it doesn’t sound like it would be, but it really is.

Here’s the trailer, which gives you a pretty good idea of the movie:

So, hey, if we still know each other when we’re that age, care to join me?

Iron Man Review

It’s actually been a very long time since I wrote a game review. Too long.

After seeing the Iron Man movie on opening day, I was pumped enough to go rent the videogame. While everyone else in the known universe was playing Grand Theft Auto IV, I was flying around and catching missiles. To each his own. I had to actually rent the game a second time to get all the way through it, but did finally have success.

My review of the game is here.

And if you haven’t seen the movie yet and don’t want to go by yourself, I’d go see it again. Totally.

Indiana Jones

It’s really not my intent to turn this blog into an “all movies, all the time” format, but I feel it is my duty to tell you that the official trailer is out for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and that you can view it here.

Consider this my Valentine’s Day gift to you.
