Davinci Code and Soap Opera

So last night we went to see The Davinci Code and it was ok. Like it was good but TOm Hanks wasn't perfect for the part and it wasn't super good. But it was good. I didn't read the book though I plan on it but I think like some parts may seem better in the book. Like the whole ending thing, like to actually see the ending seems kinda funny/stupid but reading it would seem better I would think. I don't want to give anything away so that is all I will say.

Ok so lots of people want to be in my soap opera which is super awesome. I am currently turning it into offical script format for taping. I think I am gonna keep each episode short, like 15 minutes. This way like I can actually get some whole episodes done but also so that maybe we can post the episodes on (e:strip)? (e:paul), would that be possible? I will talk to you about it in person.

Need to be Judged?

So last night I get a call from (e:mk) that she needs another judge for a highschool battle of the bands at Lancaster Highschool. Let me tell you, I dropped everything for the chance. It was like a dream come true. I felt like a celebrity all set up at my table with the score sheets and being served drinks and knowing these bands fate (well five hours of recording time in a proffessional studio) rested in my hands. Years from now if they become famous I could be on a VH1 special, being like yeah I judged them in their first battle of the bands which was really the beggining of their bright future. Without me they probably would have never made it.

So we went and except the fact that it was so freakin cold in the auditorium/cafeteria it was fun. We got to judge the bands on things such as tightness (at first, I thought, um what? do we personally test that out?, i guess it is a musical thing). overall sound, entertainment and other things. And then we could make comments, such as "I like your shirt but your music is stinky". or "wow your songs seemed to drag on but the crowd seemed to like them". Its hard for me to sometimes judge something as good if it isn't my style (aka just screming at the top of your lungs like a dying cat). Like if I don't like the music, it is hard for me to say it is good, but I did, I was very impartial.

I think the best part was all the free food. We got pizza, wegmans subs, chips, chococlate chip cookies and so much other good stuff.

Needless to say my favorite band won, so like whoa I know what I am doing. So now I kinda want to make a career out of judging talent/battle of the band concerts, anyone in need of a judge?

It's Been A While

Oh my work has been kinda crazy. So busy. WE got more workers at a time and it is still crazy. I am so sick of people yelling at me at their top of their lungs but then apologizing like an hour later. How about you just don't yell in the first place.

Anyway, this post is actually about how I want to tape my soap opera this summer. I know I have said this before but I really want to do it this time. Anyone interested? I just need to update the script and make it a little more exciting I think. Well if anyone is interested, message me or e-mail me. I need all kinds of roles, both big and small so let me know what you're interested in. (e:southernyankee) and (e:twisted), how about you come in to B-lo to be in an (e:strip) soap opera?

JJ's and Page7

So I have went to JJ's for only a few hockey games in the playoffs and always I go during the end of the third quarter. And THE SABRES ALWAYS WIN!!!! Tonight I am not going to JJ's, and tonight with only a few minutes left, they are losing, uh oh? Am I to blame?

Sidenote: (e:hodown)'s post made me nostalgic for the days of Page7 and all the gossip mongering.

No Cruising For Me Please

So my mom got free passes to see Poseidon at work the other day and so we went last night. First of all we had to sit in the second row at Regal which is way too close to the screen, especially for a movie like this where stuff is happening all over the screen. Secondly, a box of skittles that cost me $2 ( and is normally $3.75) had the amount of skittles of like a 50 cent bag. It was really insane.


Anywho the movie was very enjoyalbe. I never saw the original but this one was very entertaining I thought. Like cheesy and stuff but still really good and entertaining for the time it was on. OMG one scene with Richard Dryfuss and some other actor was crazy intense. I hope I am never in that situation. Well I kinda hope I am not in any of those situations.

Water that is on fire is scary. Fire is scary, drowning is scary, drowning in water that is on fire and burning you...too scary to imagine.

So anyway, that leads me to, I always had wanted to go on a cruise and evyerone I know who has went on one has loved them, and Diana was planning a "we have all been friends for 10 years cruise next year" but this movie terrifies me of it. Seriuosly you are out in the middle of nowhere if something happens. Yet all the food and drinks you can consume...that sounds mighty tasty....maybe it is worth the fire/drowning/sharks etc. ....

So this weekend was fun except Friday night Confetti was supposed to come out. It looks like an amazing movie, like comedy about these couples who enter a magazine contest to pay for their wedding. I don't know, it looks hilaroius and (e:jill) thought she saw that it comes out May 5. So I get so excited, May 5 comes along, it isn't listed in artvoice, it isn't listed in the Gusto, but it must be up.... we start to panic. I go online and serach within 65 miles of my zip code deciding that is how far I am willing to travel to see it. But noooo it isn't....i begin to isn't up yet i we saw American Haunting instead which was funny....too bad that it was supposed to be scary. IT was pretty bad but it will give us years worth of jokes I can't meniton here...

From Essex St. Pub to Medicare

So I haven't posted in a little while. Frankly, life has been pretty good lately and I guess when things are really good I don't think of writing as much. So here are some observations from the last few days.

- a 13 hour workday with no break is no fun. Seriously I didn't get a chance to sit down for the entire THIRTEEN hours because it was so busy, including spending a half hour with this dumb stupid lady who didn't know how much was left on her flex card and got rid of one item at a time until her credit card would go through (it turned out she had about 23 dollars on it when her first total was $300. It takes a while to go from 300 to 23 dollars one item at a time while trying the card after gettig rid of each item)

-last night me and (e:libertad) went to Essex St. Pub and they were having their first ever karaoke night. It just doesn't seem like a place that would have karaoke night to me. Needless to say noone but the bartender did karaoke but we left very early so maybe it picked up after that.

-for those of you over 65 you only have 12 more days to sign up for Medicare Part D and avoid any penalty. You won't be able to sign up again til november if you miss the deadline. I'm a little excited because that means at least 5 months of not needing to deal with Medicare.

-This weekend is the weekend of a million things, Confetti( the movie me and (e:jill) have been dying to see) opens, Jen and her b/f who is on leave from Iraq are in town, it is Michelle at works going away party, cinco de mayo, and now I see it is (e:jenks) bday too. I believe some other stuff is this weekend too. Why does eveyrthing always happne this way, all at once!

-note to self: post next journal about former school mates attitude of "the city" and how scary buffalo is
