So far this scene at least ties into something the 1st and 10th doctors have said… That’s awesome!
It’s been a rough couple of weeks, so I’m really excited for this weekend. Hanging out with Kieran (for the first time since Christmas), Mark, and Jeana will be awesome and I’ll be seeing many movies I love. I’m also hoping to get in touch with a couple more people about coming, but we’ll see.
I’ll likely be missing 4 movies they’re showing, and definitely two of them (Neverending Story and Romancing the Stone). But it will still be good.
Here’s my planned schedule
4:10- The Money Pit
7:00- Princess Bride
12:30- The Last Unicorn
2:20- The Ice Pirates
4:40- Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
7:00- The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
3:10- This is Spinal Tap
5:00- Adventures in Babysitting
7:10- Last of the Mohicans (maybe)
9:30- Die Hard (maybe)
First I want to say how much I miss my friends that are here. I don’t get to see or communicate with you guys nearly enough. For anyone in the Triangle area though, I’ll be at Escapism next week, and can send you my schedule of movies I’m seeing. I know Kieran, Mark and Jeana will be there Friday for Princess Bride, which is exciting.
I don’t think I’ve posted about this on here, but I went back to school three weeks ago. I’m at DCC and taking Graphic Imaging Technology. It’s been fun so far, though we’ve not done much. I might post a picture of work to date in a little while. I’ve made a couple of notebooks, fooled with photoshop and indesign, and that’s mostly it. the classes are mostly good, though health and safety is a lot of one page essays and summaries which I’m not a fan of.
Unfortunately, I haven’t got a lot of art done lately, but hopefully I can work on that this weekend. I’m in the process of a Nosferatu mighty mugg and a Doctor Who painting that is coming along very well.
I’m really looking forward to NCComicon, in addition to seeing my friends and watch rad comic book movies like last year, I’m hoping to meet John Barrowman and Fiona Staples. The former will probably be the more difficult,but I’ll just have to try and get their early. :P
Anyway, I hope everyone is well. I love you all and I’ll try to post more pictures, updates, and such in the future.
In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.
I will be down September 19-21. This is the schedule in which I could see all 13 films showing at Escapism. If there are any you guys want to see, or if you would like to get together for dinner one of the nights, let me know.
I’d like to see people, so I’ll skip a movie or two if it means we’d get to hang out. Also, if you want to see one, but not at the time I have, I might be able to work it out.
I’m also planning to be down for the retros on Sept 5 and 12. The 5th is The Thin Man and Sorry, Wrong Number and the 12th is Ferris Bueller’s Day off and Real Genius.
