commitment to the greater good

I’m not sure if I’m cut out for this. I’ve only had passing desires since I was in high school, and even then they were short lived. In the past ten or so years, I’ve made short commitments and stuck with them for a few weeks before giving in and giving up. And even then, I didn’t really know what I was doing because I didn’t care. I just knew what I wanted to be and look like, which was different than I am. The difficulty in making this happen is just doing it. No matter what.

Play through the pain.


Little Miss Awesome

Little Miss Sunshine is the sleeper hit of the year. Not much advertisement but word of mouth is absolutely going to send this to the top.

I went to see it last night in Pasadena expecting it to be good, but it blew me away. I laughed so hard that I cried, not once but twice. This movie is truly one of the best out there.

[*********partial spoiler! – don’t read until you see the movie unless you don’t care*********]

If you have seen it, there’s a part where along the trip where Dwayne finds out his impairment and starts to go insane in the van kicking it and pushing on the ceiling. Then you see the van slow down to a stop by this random neighborhood. When I first saw this scene, after an instance of not recognizing it I suddenly realized that the neighborhoods you see in the background look familiar. Eerily familiar. In fact, I suddenly knew. That was MY neighborhood! The mountains in the background, the houses that you see, those are the same that I live in and drive through everyday! I’ve jogged on those sidewalks and drive on that road everyday! I was just in shock to realize they shot that scene no more than a mile or so from my house! It makes me wonder when they acutally filmed this (although I’m sure I was at work or something anyway).

Go see the movie. You won’t regret it!

silence is golden

…except when it’s on your personal website and people check it quite often. I’m here, but I’m not. I’ll post some more content soon, but I left this alone for a month for Google to pick up this previous post because it just pissed me off so much. I enjoy having a voice and Google enjoys indexing my site.
