A Book and Two Movies.

I recently finished reading the two-book series Star Trek: Deep Space NineAvatar. Overall, I think the books were good. Towards the end of the second book it started to drag. The main conflict was solved with like twenty or thirty pages to spare yet the book went on, I think needlessly. This is the beginning of a relaunch, continuing where the TV series left off. I had previously read the third book of the series and was a bit confused so I went back. I can't say I'm pleased with how Star Trek books are written now. They are no longer as independent of one another. Not too mention how they hype originally created characters much the same way Corran Horn and Mara Jade are in Star Wars books now.

Because of the power outage the other night, my father and I went to see a late showing of the Bad News Bears remake. The movie wasn't bad but not as good as the original. It did, however, have some really good lines: "Baseball is like dating a German woman. It doesn't alway…

Well, well well...

Isn't interesting that I mention something on my blog and a related thing turns up? First the Maine thing and now this. Hmmm

Good Old Fashioned Movie Review Post

This weekend I saw three movies. Two I'd seen before, Million Dollar Baby and Whale Rider and a new one: Miss Congeniality 2. You can find reviews of the other two movies in the archives but I do want to add that, because my father's hearing is getting worse, the close captions of Whale Rider were covering up the subtitles so when they were speaking Maori, all I could see was the Maori words were and not the translation. My father didn't mention this so I'm thinking he didn't notice...

Anyway, Miss Congeniality is one of my favorite movies so I figured the sequel wouldn't totally suck. I was wrong. It just wasn't as funny at all. Dietrich Bader played the pompous stylist role. I know they asked Michael Caine to return but I guess he said no. Frankly, I'm not surprised. Shatner did return but he and Cheryl were not given good lines at all. My father pointed out that the villain of the piece whoever he was paled in comparison to Candace Bergen but is that …

Harry Potter and the Half-Ass Post

I just finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last night. Surprised is not really the word I'd use to describe the death at the end. This person was at the top of my list, at least as I got further and further into it. No, the feeling here is denial. That death scene was extremely fishy and there is definitely more going on. Two options: the killer was ordered by the victim to kill him or the death was staged by the two of them. The two had an argument earlier about something so I'm thinking the killer didn't want to do it.

Lady Vader commented on Harry's choice of women. Could be much worse I think.

No, what I really had a problem with, and maybe I need to re-read this but, I'm confused about the identity of the Half-Blood Prince. In one part of the book it says that this person's mother is a half-blood then later it says she was a full-blooded witch who married a Muggle. Which is it? Another thing, Harry is there when "The Prince" yells out &…

You Know You're From Maine When...


You've had arguments over the comparative quality of Fried Dough.

You call four inches of snow "a dusting."

You don't understand why there aren't fried clam shacks elsewhere in the county.

You know what an Irving is and the location of 15 of them.

You knew all the flavors at Perry's Nut House.

Your car is covered in yellow-green dust in May.

You can drive the Augusta traffic circle without slowing down.

You've hung out at a gravel pit.

You think a mosquito could be a species of bird.

You once skipped school and went to Bar Harbor, Old Orchard Beach or Reid State Park.

Even your school cafeteria made good chowder.

You've almost fallen asleep driving between Houlton and Presque Isle.

You know how to pronounce Calais.

You've made a meal out of a Jordan's red dye hot-dog, a bag of Humpty Dumpty potato chips and a can of soda.

You've gone to a Grange bean supper.

In high school, you (or a friend) packed Deering Ice Cream …

Baseball, Penguins, Shirley Jones and a Rant or Two

You know what's worse than listening to the horrible Fox commentators during a baseball game? When my Sox lose it, that's what. The most idiotic comment they made, besides once again dissing Bellhorn (Yes, we know he pretty much always walks or strikes out. Move on!), was when they suggested that Mueller and Mirabelli should use a hit and run play. Any broadcaster who does any kind of homework would know, no matter how little they watch the team, that Mirabelli can't run! What I hate most about Fox is their incessant need to analyze and kiss up to the Yankees. At least this week they were actually playing the game; which does not usually matter.

Surprisingly, the ESPN morons didn't piss me off this week. Sure they went on and on about the Yankees as well but with Leiter giving a surprisingly good show, I found that acceptable. ESPN also hardly ever discusses the Yankees unless they are actually playing that particular game.

Unfortunately, not even having the great Jerry …

A Test.

I figured I'd try and post a pic of myself for those readers who were curious about what I looked like.

Holding Pattern

I'll discuss Fantastic Four in a minute but I first want to comment on my job search because...Well, it's my blog. Recently, I contacted a few of the applications I have out. Two had the same message, I wasn't called for an interview but I have not been ruled out yet. I guess I'm good enough to be an alternate. Hmmm. I guess that's something, right? Oh and since I did mention Minnesota specifically in the past, I will also mention I heard back from them as well: they still haven't made any decisions yet.

And now True Believers, I bring you the review of the Fantastic Four! As we all suspected, not as good as Batman Begins mainly since it didn't follow the comic as well but it was very entertaining and certainly better than Daredevil and Elektra which is a good thing. The characterizations were great and most were spot on. Jessica Alba did great as the older sister of the Human Torch but as a astrophysicist or whatever she was supposed to be, terribl…

Many Thoughts

I was going to call this post "Burnt Cupcakes" but that really just seems mean. Yes, Cupcake and I are no more. ::Shrugs:: Truthfully, I had noticed the major problem, that being we were in different places in our lives, almost from the beginning but since it didn't seem to be a problem for her, I let it go. Then I go on vacation for two weeks which gave her time to reflect. This probably a mistake on my part. You shouldn't give a woman time to realize they're with me... :)

Yes, I was on vacation for two weeks. Well, technically the first week was employed to take care of my aunt's four cats but it was on a lake in the middle of nowhere (cellphone deadzone!) so I guess it still counts. We then went back to that cabin on Sebago in Maine. I swam a lot, shopped a lot played mini-golf and saw a lot of family.

As it happens every vacation, I watched many a movie. I finally saw Finding Nemo (Loved it!) and a strange movie with Demi Moore called Passion of Mind. I als…
