Neat

Someone’s out in the lake with a hydrofoil water ski thing. As the tow boat gets going faster and faster, the guy out on the rope rises higher and higher out if the water. Looks kinda cool.

A short movie review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Let’s see. I think I can say that this is my favorite Marvel movie yet, or at least tied with the first Iron Man, which means it’s a knife edge in front of The Avengers. Definitely the funniest Marvel flick–just an amazingly large amount of snarky banter, which is pretty much how you get into the fast lane to my heart. Plus, cool spaceships and lots of explosions, which are the other two ways to get in. And gunfights with maniacal laughter. And a pretty good mixtape. Another couple ways in. It does a good job at introducing all these new characters without mindless exposition.

So yeah. I’ll give it the highly coveted “This Summer’s Pacific Rim” award, which means I’ll also probably be giving it another couple views in theaters and another couple hand fulls of dollars. And the greatest thing about it is that even people who haven’t seen the other Marvel movies can watch it, because there’s not a whole lot of overlap with anything that’s happened in the others! So no excuses, bluesun says: “go see it!”

Off to the movies

Going to see Guardians of the Galaxy. Looks entertaining. Actually, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it’s been my most anticipated flick of 2014. Hope my expectations aren’t crushed and shattered! Ta!

I thought I posted this back when (July 10, so, wayyyy back when) but it suddenly showed up in my draft section. So now I’m confused. Tell me I’m not crazy, and you haven’t seen this before…

Question of the Day

“…are all the ‘droids equally malfunctioning?”

I think LSP has the best explanation for the insanity in our biggest smartest strongest fastest et cetera-est leaders I’ve heard yet.

Something else I haven’t seen in a while

Skies this blue.

It’s been so murky for so long, I’m glad the rain gave the air a good scrubbing.

That was interesting

My windshield actually fogged up on the way out to the dam today. Hasn’t happened in a while.

Usually I think Pomplamoose hits them out of the park, but I prefer the original for once.

And to the victor goes the spoils… another song!

Probably not a good sign

Giant clouds of smoke are generally not good, black smoke is worse, and smoke the day after a big rain is also not encouraging…

Hiding under the desk

I was binding a report and the binder was making loud clunking noises which were very distressing. Best to hide under the desk, just in case.

Impressive

That’s a big flag pole.

Half an inch of rain might not sound like much to those of you from back east somewhere, but here in the high desert and canyons that’s enough for flooding.
