Yes, the Crystal Skull is better. It has Marion. That alone makes it superior to Temple Of Doom.

... Whut.

Whut, indeed! Crystal Skull is the only Indiana Jones movie I've never seen more than once. And likely the only one I'd never willingly include in my own collection.

At least Temple Of Doom had practical effects. Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull had Shia LaBeouf swinging on CGI vines and Harrison Ford surviving a CGI nuclear explosion in a CGI fridge.

To me, Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull is right on the edge of being bad and being so-bad-it's-good. I guess it depends on the people you see it with. I saw it once in the theater by myself and afterward, I just felt kind of sick (and not just because of all the weird motion blur), but I saw it again on DVD with a couple of friends and we laughed our asses off. I've got a store release poster in my bad movie poster collection.

Who knew that computer generated imagery could protect you from computer generated radiation and powerful computer generated explosions? It's little known facts like this that make life fun! ;)

I was literally just about to make a reference to Rogue One and CGI before you posted about seeing the film tonight.

Aw, I think I have missed my chance to see Dr Strange in the theater on the big screen. :(

Leftover beef and broccoli for lunch. I love udon noodles. And the sauce it's cooked with: honey, soy, sriracha,garlic, lime juice .. *muah*

It's weird being here when it is sunny. and there are people. The good thing is that they are marine biologists, and as such more introverted than I. No tiring chat about sportsball or the weather.


Especially....

Skirting close to my rules (so spoilered)

Spoiler:
I live in New England, and that particularly pernicious sportsball subtype known as 'football' has reared its ugly jingoistic faux-patriotic (LOL) playoff head. Now instead of 'boy its cold' the new preferred conversational gambit is 'did you see the Pats game?' GAH. Wake me up, when Feb 5th ends....

Evening, all. What did I miss?

Silver Crusade

It's becoming increasingly clear that my missing iPad is not going to turn up. I left it on a plane, and it has not been found. (Or at least not found by anyone with the character to turn it in.)

I was in a complete fog that day. I actually lost my boarding pass twice in the airport before that flight. I lost it, reprinted it, and then accidentally threw the reprint into the trash. So yeah, I was not in a high state of mental clarity that day.

Silver Crusade

There would be no hope for me if it were not for this three-day weekend that I largely spent sleeping. All that sleep also helped me get over that nasty cold.

John was bummed that he never got ham over the holidays this year, so I surprised him by having a ham ready when he got home today. That is worth some brownie points.

Brownies with ham in them? That might just work. Or is it ham with brownies in it?


I am glad that you are feeling better, CH. I am also sorry that you lost your iPad.


~thinks~ Now I wonder, what did you put in those brownies? Was there a "special" ingredient?

But was it a proper christmas ham breaded with mustard?

Sympathies for the missing iPad CH.

Funny ham story:

Job #3 allows me to direct deposit my check, yet still insists on printing out a paper payslip. Since I am only in the office for scant minutes every week I usually blow off picking them up until they forcibly hand me a stack of them.

A week ago they did just that, and attached to one payslip was their idea of a Christmas bonus: a $15 off coupon for a holiday ham. I found this kind of hilarious, but as I never look a gift horse in the mouth I decided to get a ham while I went shopping.

As it turned out there was a massive post-holiday ham sale going on. The upshot of which is that I got a huge spiral-cut ham, originally $76 retail for $1.39. As God is my witness I am flummoxed as to how to dismember and store the massive beast.


A big knife, gallon-sized ziplocs, and a lot of freezer space?

Or a very hungry big dog.

Since I worked in a restaurant for six years, I'll share a little technique I've learned. Get yourself some large Zip-loc bags and fill a stock pot 3/4 full of water. Put a reasonable amount of Ham slices in the bags. Submerge each bag in the water until the water in the pot is just below the zipper. This forces as much air out of the bag as possible. Seal the bag and dry the outside. This will prevent freezer burn of the Ham, and will allow you to keep them in the freezer for a longer period.


Good idea


Have you tried it?

Not yet, but I probably will on this one. I'll have ham sammiches until St Paddy's day

Somehow my ringer switxhed off and I didn't see your text earlier. I AM awake, just not overly happy about that fact.

In fact I really can't go to sleep until 3pm today, and it kinda pisses me off

Life got there first, bro ...


Why do you think I left you some belly button lint? That way you would have SOMETHING in your pocket.

A story about art.

Recently, one of my favorite artists Tony DyTerlizzi, who I follow on facebook, posted an ebay link to a Planescape drawing he had done back in the 2ed days. The owner was selling it for $1400. It's a nice piece of his art, but not one of his signature pieces, rather a secondary piece from somewhere.

Now, back in the Nineties, I found his original website when I was obsesssed by Planescape. He had several pieces of art for sale at the time, including this piece which is the Factol of the Sensates, and one of the more recognizable Planescape pieces. I sooooo wanted it, but the price ($450) seemed like a lot to pay for a piece of art.

Flash forward 18 years, and a fairly plain piece of DiTerlizzi art from that period is going for $1400. I can only imagine 'Erin Darkflame recumbent on a couch' would likely fetch more than $10K.

Trust your gut when it comes to art collection.

Well, Patrick's newfound obsession with art yielded spectacular results when he came across a rare painting by Emo Phillips in a garage sale. Meanwhile, Scott's effort to find new recipes his kids might like lead him to purchase the book 101 ways to prepare a chicken nugget. And, across town, Max's iPad had fallen into the hands of the villainous.......No, wait! That's my soap opera.
