Never really realized how much manufacturers expect people to use their remotes until recently. I lost my remote to my DVD player and just tried putting in a DVD to watch Firefly and realized I couldn't navigate the menu with the buttons on the physical DVD player. All there is your standard VCR menu (at least on mine) which only lets me play the first thing selected really. Boooo. I really wanted to finish up watching the series.

Caught Grindhouse this weekend. I didn't originally plan on seeing it but a bunch of my friends were going and it's free at the school so I figured why not. I wasn't expecting much, I thought it looked rather stupid. However, when with a bunch of friends, these movies are pretty hilarious. Planet Terror is great in it's classic horrid zombie plot. It's so bad you have to love it. What's even better is how they've edited it so that the picture has color distortions and random jumps in video. The beginning of Death Proof is rather boring, I actually nearly fell asleep, but if you can get past it the last half of the film is a car chase made of pure win. Both films even have a "missing reel" at appropriate times. Planet Terror's is the best while Death Proof's is timed pretty well but nowhere near as hilarious as Planet Terror's. There's some hilarious "previews" in between the films as well.

I don't know if I'd tell people to go buy it but if you can get a bunch of friends together and rent it you'll have a grand time laughing at these classic styled movies.

Lewis Black is coming to the Wharton in November. Steve and I just found this out yesterday and instantly purchased tickets. This will be so fucking awesome.

So I just tried to see how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Except by "licks" I mean computer crashes. And by "center of a Tootsie Pop" I mean Windows corruption.

I noticed I never posted anything about the Transformers movie... which people should go see if it's still in their local theater. It's actually pretty good and I was completely surprised at how well it was done. They didn't go and rape one of my childhood fandoms.

While on the subject of movies, who has seen Stardust and/or Sunshine? Stardust looks pretty neat and fun. I don't know if Sunshine is still in theaters or not but it looked really cool and sadly it wasn't showing in my area despite the fact that they claimed it was "In all theaters." I'm hoping it's showing back in East Lansing or at the very least I could catch it sometime during the school year at Wells Hall (if they show it) before it comes out on DVD.

I don't consider it a good omen that all the computers I've been regularly in contact with have been breaking down in one fashion or another. Let's go down the list from bad to worse.

My computer has been freezing on me at random all summer and I still don't know why. I've done everything at this point except replacing my hard drive. Can't really be spending a ton of money on fixing it so been going with the cheapest fixes, hoping those would work, before buying new hardware.

My parents computer just the other day stopped booting up correctly. Been slowly trying to figure out why (mostly cause I really don't want to fix it, it's old and slow). My mom's been complaining a lot about how slow it is, I kinda wish they'd just get a new one since it's not going to be getting any faster. I'd get them some new RAM but it has a really odd type (RDRAM) that isn't very common (and quite frankly from what I've read and heard about it, it sucks).

My brother's computer screen on his laptop is busted beyond repair. He can hook up a computer screen to it but it requires a digital input cable... which only my monitor has. Also doesn't help that he got hooked into WoW shortly before his monitor blew, so he's been borrowing my comp a lot so he can play until he gets enough money for a new computer.

Bah, I love my family but I'm a little sick at the moment of playing tech support. Can't wait to get back to school (two more weeks!).

Harry Potter = finished.

Overall: Awesome! There's maybe like two things that bothered me but not enough to ruin the book or anything. Can't wait to see it in movie form.

Things that bothered and things that were awesome. SPOILERSCollapse )

Okay, I've been trying to tell enough people in person as I can about my successful plans from a few posts back. However due to a lot of people on my friends list now no longer being in the area, it's kinda hard for me to do that. So enough secretive stuff, now I'd like to just spread the good news as it has been a few weeks.

On July 3rd, a few weeks back, I had been dating my girlfriend, Colleen, for five years. I don't know any other person I could spend that much time with in that such of a relationship other then Colleen. So I finally popped the question and asked her to marry me.

And she said "Yes!" =D
