Christmas Carol 3D

So I went to see the Newest Version of "A Christmas Carol" today. The way I see it most people know the story allready so what it comes down to is presentation. I think the movie looked amazing. I think Jim Carey did a great job. I think Scroge looked like himself through the entire movie. Now interms of effects I thought they where truely very good. In Terms of the 3D aspect I'm not really sure. The last time I saw 3D was that Micheal Jackson movie at epcot center and there stuff looked like it was coming off the screen at you. But thinking back I don't think there was any scene where the stuff was coming out towards you the viewer. I think the horses where amazing, maybe part of that scene. But since I didn't see it in regular vision I can't say how it looked. Back in the old days of two color glasses I did have trouble seeing some 3D stuff so maybe part of it is me, not sure. Yes the 3D version is a little bit more. Before the movie the previews for Avatar, and Alice In Wonderland both looik amazing. After the movie I got some stuff at target I maybe should have bought the deluxe version of Caroline that comes with 3D Glasses but one thing that stoped was I wonder how the 3D worlks on a TV screen or if you really need an HD TV or atleast a large screen, I should have got in anyways. Back to the movie I give it 2 thumbs up.

I'll admit that I wasn't sure where to cut it off as prewedding pictures but I think this is a good spot. It was a good time and the gardens looked nice. Hope people like the pictures

Party Part 1 Halloween 2009

So Here is the thing some pictures are very dark some are good and some are a mix. Based on the small size I can't tell how they will look so I think I will just post them in order and hope I don't miss any. Hope people like them and that they are ok. I need to find the right setting to take pictures inside in dark settings, I think there is away to make the ISO level standard but I'm not sure if yet how to do that. I need to figure that out before when ever the next (e:strip) party is.

Not sure what my favorite costume was there where a bunch of good ones. I thought it was cleaer that Louis was with Peter who was dressed as I assumed Peter Pan but maybe I got that wrong. Then the Tower's as pirates was awesome.. It was a great time thanks to everyone who showed up and (e:PMT) for hosting it and changing the night so there was no wedding conflict.

One Of the tough things with having a ton of pictures is you are often not sure where to call it or cut the blog to start part 2 it is tough to tell how many you have up and how it will be viewed by others so for now this is the end of Part 1. Hope someone enjoys the pictures of someone.

Hallowedding Weekend

So I just wanted to quickly say thanks to (e:PMT) for having the Halloween Party and being great hosts and everyone who went and had a great time. Also thanks to everyone who worked on the wedding and the reception it was great. Also sorry to (e:vincent) that my tiredness caused me to not hang out I really should have. Also sorry I didn't get that all the (e:peeps) where going to be kinda in the same area at the wedding. That being said it was a great time. I will start adding pictures soon but do to lack of time I will just put up a couple that kinda cover the sentiment.

Couple of Notes the shoes are (e:leetee) and was it (e:Jason)'s or Josh's I can't remember. The Cake is Nightmare Before Christmas. Loved the movie theme of the tables. The Lady with me is Cindy and if memory serves correclty she is Keith Tower's women not sure if he has a page on her but I know his brother does. By the way great pirate costumes by the way by all 3 of them. Not sure what pictures I should post next? Hope everyone had a great Holiday weekend.

Fall Colors

First of all this has been and will be a crazy week. On Monday I went to wrestling. It was fun and crazy on the floor. It looks like my pictures came out dark so I'm not going to post them, I did a few on facebook and then gave up. Then coming up Friday is (e:strip) party, then Saturday is the wedding, wow that came fast. Then there is also the reception I'm really hopping that it will be a great time. I wonder if I will get any sleep at all? Well if you follow me on facebook you may have allready seen this pictures from around my neck of the woods. I wish I had time to like go to Hoyt lake and take pictures from other parts of the city but I don't.

Tron



Hopefully the above video plays ok. It is the trailer for Tron. If I understand it correctly there is a remake of it and it is in 3D. It looks pretty cool. I think I saw the original but back then I was young so I may have only seen parts of it. I know I didn't see it but I had the story on audio tape that is it. what I remember are clips I've seen of it.

web Cars

So I thought some of you might like and also might hate these pictures of a spider web that I took, not sure how good they are or how well you can see them but here goes.

Then here are a few pictures of cars two from near my house and one from downtown. I wish I could have gotten a picture of all the limos I saw before AC/DC I think it was about 5 in all.

AC/DC was Insanely Great

The tickets I had where will call so I had to pick them up, the line for that was long but no where near as long as the line to get in but they both got kinda mixed up. "The Pat Down" was annoying but oh well. Then I had to get some Merch and some food also.



image

image

image

image

image

image

image

I can Admit the I liked the band that opened up for AC/DC called The Answer, even though I have never heard of them. I think they said they are from Bellfast might have the wrong place in Irealand .



image

image

image

image

image

I can't think of a hit that AC/DC didn't do plus they did some new stuff. If they didn't do stuff from the new CD (I don't have it) I think that would have caused some problems. The show started with "rock n' roll train" not sure what the tittle is but that is what I know it as. The video presentation of it and the start of the show was amazing. Here are the shots that I got. It can't equal what it was like to see it in person but any one who sees this gets the general idea.

Yes the show was not cheap but it was so worth the money. One of the reasons is that the show they put on is amazing. Now if this was a TV show this would be what they call breaking the 4th wall. If my memory is correct the first show I saw that did that was moonlighting, yes Bruce Willis would talk to the viewer, what a great show that was. Ok back to my point I'm not sure how much commentary I'm going to put into the pictures but for now here are somemore and maybe I'll talk about the effects or if I can remember the song that they where playing or what ever.

To try and Pick a Favorite AC/DC song would be tough. Thunderstruck is pretty good though. They used to play it at sporting events all the time. They used to play it at Bandits games. The Funny thing is when they would play it when it was the Bandits vs. The Baltimore Thunder they wouldn't play all it saying "Thunder Sturck" Or even "Thunder" would be giving a boost to the wrong team. Maybe my memory or thoughts on that is wrong though so who knows..........





image

image

image

image

image

One thing with posting concert pictures is sometimes I feel like it is more of a light show, since often you see the lights more then the band. Hopefully with the pictures in a biger size then thumbnails you can see the band in there.

The Effects Durring "War Machine" Where pretty cool. They had tanks and planes and then they had like a close up and it was like angus flying and then the bombs they where dropping where women. If you have the chance travel and go see AC/DC close by if the tour is close enough still.


image

image

image

image

image

image

image

I had a great time. They used that train for effects also. Lets see smoke came out of, a giant Girl sat on it and tapped her foot, flames shot out of it, that was pretty cool. Well here are yet more pictures to give a general sense of things.



image

image

Well due to the time factor I will cut it here and say that yes at the end of the show they had cannons that was pretty cool. And there was a point where the train went away and the two screens became one. Well it gives you the general sense and if you made it this far hope you liked this post.
