Austin Geeks!! The Local IMAX (May) Want You!!

Published at: July 13, 2010, 11:04 a.m. CST by merrick

Merrick here...
The folks down at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum IMAX pointed us towards a cool job opening they thought AICN readers might get a kick out of - "Movie nuts are welcome here!" were their exact words, actually. In short, this gig is for a part time projectionist down at the IMAX. My understanding is that part time probably means approx 20-30 hours a week at somewhere around $13-$14 an hour starting wage. As an IMAX worshiper, this is an opportunity I'm seriously tempted to apply for myself. You can learn more about both preferred and essential qualifications HERE. That's a State website as IMAX folks down at the Bullock are apparently State employees. Be sure to read through the information carefully before applying. My buddy Pat, a projectionist down at the Bullock IMAX, maintains a website HERE - where you can learn more about things IMAX (including frame counts of various movies screened via IMAX!?). You can see his cool motorcycle there as well. The Austin IMAX contingent has been very good to AICN, and our site hosting future screenings there seems almost certain. This would be a very interesting way to be a part of it all, as well as Geek out while mastering the finest moviegoing presentation there is. All the information you need to know is available through either the State site, or Pat's site, linked above. Please don't write us with questions because, beyond what's on this page, we know nothing. Best of luck, and have fun!

    MY local IMAX sucks

    by Bass Ackwards

    Now that the AMC theater chain has built one of their quasi-IMAX theaters, the actual IMAX theater never plays feature films anymore. Doubly odd since they went through a minor renovation a year or two ago (comfier seats, bulked up sound system) to accommodate features. Triply odd since there are now often multiple movies out in theaters with IMAX presentations, so there's enough to go around for two screens (they could be playing Toy Story 3 while the fake IMAX is dicking around with Twilight). I hope hope hope Inception somehow gets onto our real IMAX.

    by JayLenoTookMyJob

    ...in Austin. I've visited Texas twice. I will NOT be returning to "America's Waziristan Province" anytime soon, if ever. I don't care if Austin is "the liberal city of Texas." Being "liberal for Texas" means it's rural Alabama. No thanks, my friends can visit me.

  • July 13, 2010, 12:43 p.m. CST

    That would be sweet!

    by Sonny_Williams

    I'd love to have this job after I retire from my real job in a few years so whoever gets this, watch your ass! I love the Bullock Museum, and it's right across the street from my old gig, UT (Hook'em Horns!) I could spend my down time checking out the babes walking around campus. Perfect job for a dirty old man like me!!

  • July 13, 2010, 12:47 p.m. CST

    Hey JLTMJ

    by Sonny_Williams

    If you equate Austin with rural Alabama, you either: 1) know a part of Alabama I'm not familiar with, or 2) are a complete fucktard. I'm pretty sure it's the latter, so you're welcome to stay the hell away from Austin for the rest of your pathetic existence.

    IMAX repeats

    by Mel Garga

    I hate that features specifically shot for IMAX get released and then disappear, seemingly forever. My local theater is attached to a museum and offers the films on DVD in the gift shop but that's hardly appealing. IMAX should show repeats just like some of these megaplexes need to dedicate a single theater specifically for classics. Mel is now offline...

    Hey, Have been an IMAX Projectionist for years and am having a great time. Would love to help you out if I could only keep my job here while being able to help you when needed. Screening "Inception" tonight for the staff. Can't Wait!! Maxx

    I loved the film. Built and screened it last night. If I lived in Texas, I would love to help Pat out. I sure wish I could get me a 2nd QTRU and remove our MkII. It makes building any print a pain when you're running a DMR 3D film during normal operating hours.

    by billybumbler

    As someone who moved to Austin a few months ago FROM rural Alabama, I can attest to the fact that the two couldn't be more different. Austin is a liberal oasis in Texas and doesn't reflect the vibe of rest of the state at all. So there.

  • July 13, 2010, 3:01 p.m. CST

    Sodapopguy...

    by LordPorkington

    You don't need a 2nd QTRU, it's all ball bearings nowadays. Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads, and I'm gonna need 'bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no make that Quaker State.

    by LordPorkington

    Like we care that you don't care? I'm sure the people of Austin are happy that a whiny little prick like yourself is staying away. This article was posted to help people who might be interested filling the vacancy. And are we supposed to believe that you actually have even two friends?

    Hey Imaxguyaustin...

    by Sodapopguy

    I have to be careful how I say this, but the Avatar re-release for IMAX theaters is an "interesting" idea. I see it working for the Digital Projectors, but it's the film based locations that worry me. I still have my Avatar print from December, but I've heard various versions of how the logistics will work for film based re-releases. And all of them sound like a nightmare.

    by Sodapopguy

    Lol, i hate those clamps and their modified Keenserts. The film fitting isn't the problem, it's where do we add the new footage? Is it all in one scene or multiple? Will they just send a new print with the new footage? How will the soundtrack work? Far more question than I've gotten answers to. I just hope they nix my location's re-release, and have me scrap the print i currently have in storage.

    AUSTIN

    by PinkFloyd7

    As a California liberal who has lived in Austin for 2 years, I have to agree with billybumbler. Austin is full of hippie, pot smoking, healthcare reform supporting, Rick Perry hating, Obama supporters. Drive out of Austin in any direction, though, and things change pretty quick. Austinites, for the most part, are pretty cool, except for the ones who hate on Californians.

  • July 13, 2010, 8:57 p.m. CST

    Oh shit.

    As a former projectionist (and current Austinite), I gotta take a crack at that. Probably make about the same as I do now anyway...

    Swai (Thai catfish, kind of like tilapia) fillets, with panko crust, pan-seared. Served with bastmati rice, fresh guacamole, and tomato salad with charred onions and balsamic. Paired with Tratturi Fiano, 2009, from Sicily ($10-is on the shelf.) <P> Sound good? Don't worry, PedalBack... you were there in spirit. Flick spent all of dinner tic-tic-ticking away at the laptop. ☺

    Sweet car, Flick.

    by TedKordLives

    Dinner sounds pretty good too. Sweet Pebus I am effing starving over here.

    PAYBACK does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    Director's Cut of PAYBACK has a ttoally different ending.. no kidnapping Kris Kristofferson's spoilt son but a cool shoot out at a train station.<p> It also restores some of the color so it's not such a granite shaded movie.

  • July 16, 2010, 7:04 p.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    The ending is ttoally different doods. Ttoally different.

    Ha! I like the new lodgings.<p> STL if you want to impart some knowledge to me then u could drop it in the original Oldman back and let me know.<p> *say no more*

    and the tank is EMPTY. Good night all. That's all I got.

  • July 16, 2010, 7:09 p.m. CST

    So, here I am, with time to kill.

    by ScaryWaitress

    Going to watch Edge of Darkness tonight... you know, a little romantic comedy. <P>

    Waitress, sounds like your man is treating you like a .. well.. like a waitress.<p> By the way where's my Monkfish I ordered 50 minutes ago!<p> *slaps waitress on bottom to hurry her up*

    Moose, I see you saw INCEPTION and loved it. The first Peeber judgement is in. I'm seeing on Monday.

  • July 16, 2010, 7:16 p.m. CST

    Arghh!

    by TedKordLives

    My roomie went with another buddy to go see INCEPTION today. I got a lift to the bus stop from them. Was sorely tempted to refuse to get out of the car.

  • July 16, 2010, 7:43 p.m. CST

    Well, I was!!

    by TedKordLives

    So what of it?!?

  • July 16, 2010, 7:49 p.m. CST

    ...I don't blame you. Sorry, I was just watching...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...dozens and dozens of bats flying out of the small gaps where the stone wall meets the roof of my neighbor's house.<P> So many their twittering sounded like a flock of birds...wow.

  • July 16, 2010, 7:55 p.m. CST

    Ew.

    by TedKordLives

    I hate bats. I hate that sound they make. I especially hate that sound when it's many bats together. <P> And I live in Bat City.

  • July 16, 2010, 7:58 p.m. CST

    That's ok, Flick.

    by TedKordLives

    I'm about outta here anyway. Enjoy your weekend!

  • July 16, 2010, 8:01 p.m. CST

    ...you too, Ted. I'm a little freaked out by bats...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...myself just now. We had a bunch in our house recently...it was quite an ordeal.

    EEEEP! [rubbing her shapely bum]

    by ScaryWaitress

    Silly Cobes... I thought you were kidding, ordering anything with the word "monk" in it... <P> OK, so we're off to watch Mel Gibson open a can of whup-ass... where that shit belongs. ON A FUCKING SCREEN. <P> YOU LISTENING, GIBSON? YOU TWATWAFFLE?

    Flick and Ess

    by Six Demon Bag

    When you come back...tell me if there is any vibrator kissing in the film..<p>I heard in the original there is dad kissing his dead girls vibrator..that's...that's not kosher.

  • July 16, 2010, 10:29 p.m. CST

    Amen Scary

    by white_vader

    On a fucking screen. And like I keep saying, singer and the song. Goes for Polanski too. <p> And take it easy with the shapely bum, and breastage comments. I'm dyin' here!

  • July 16, 2010, 10:31 p.m. CST

    Edge of darkness

    by white_vader

    I got the Pommie miniseries original a while back. Gonna watch that one first I think. <p> And I think I'm gonna ease up on night posts. No-one but Cheeses reads that stuff now anyway.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:04 p.m. CST

    ...everybody reads you night posts, Nilla...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...but I don't always comment. I can barely get my fingers moving in an organized fashion in the morning...let alone comment intelligently on intelligent night comments. Always read them though.<P> My bad, buddy.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:04 p.m. CST

    ...zero dildo kissing, I'm happy to report.

    by FlickaPoo

  • July 16, 2010, 11:11 p.m. CST

    Sorry, didn't mean to be huffy.

    by white_vader

    Been one of those weeks I guess.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:11 p.m. CST

    ...good movie, I recommend it, especially if you like...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...to see grown men kicking ass.<P> Jefe was right to say it's a solid little flick. It isn't flashy...it felt older, not new. Lots of great little moments. Loved every minute that Gibson and Ray Winstone shared on-screen together.<P> Not a perfect movie, and Mel's accent definitely wandered a bit.<P> I'm going to give it a Really Liked It 4 out of 5. Maybe 3 and 3/4. Whatever. More than three, and less than 5.<P> Good shit.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:12 p.m. CST

  • July 16, 2010, 11:14 p.m. CST

    ...I hear you, man. Tonight was the first night in over...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...a week we've managed to get ourselves organized to spend two hours at the end of a day watching a movie...like adults.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:15 p.m. CST

    ...POOYAH!!...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...hehehe...

  • July 16, 2010, 11:19 p.m. CST

    ...I hear some rumblings now that the Gibson thing...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...might be extortion. I'd love that to be the case.<P> I'd avoided all details up to this point, just because I didn't really want to know, but something felt off...like we were only hearing one side. <P> I have no doubt the guy has a temper, but I won't be surprised if the plot thickens.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:20 p.m. CST

    what about Fleshlight® kissing?

    by STLost

  • July 16, 2010, 11:21 p.m. CST

    HEY... ONE CRAZY BIT...

    by ScaryWaitress

    the singer of the wildly annoying song at the end credits (Flick was nauseated. Truly.) was sung by the same tarty bitch that's trying to smear Mel at the moment. <P> And, if anyone is keeping track: yes, we all know he's like our racist Grandpa, but this Oksana wench is out for cash. And LOTS of it. So fuck her eternally. <P> THAT DOESN'T NEGATE MY PREVIOUS POST, MEL. KEEP IT ON THE FUCKING SCREEN, GODDAMN IT. <P> Clint Eastwood... can you PLEASE educate this wingnut? PLEASE? He needs you. WE need you.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:23 p.m. CST

    ...oh, lots of that. Sloppy French-Fleshlight® kissing.

    by FlickaPoo

  • July 16, 2010, 11:24 p.m. CST

    The whole thing is a trainwreck from the sounds

    by white_vader

    of things. And him putting her on the end credits is sort of hilariously pathetic considering my separating the singer from the song comments. What a circus...

  • July 16, 2010, 11:25 p.m. CST

    I think I scared the DocBackers.

    by ScaryWaitress

    I wasn't trying. Honest. But I think I got all SCARYwaitress on them. <P> I like it here in the PedalBack. You guys get me.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:27 p.m. CST

    remember you guys trying to get

    by STLost

    me to listen to Arcade Fire? I'm finally listening to my first song..."Wake Up" <P> So that's who sings that song on the WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE trailer

  • July 16, 2010, 11:27 p.m. CST

    ...yeah, the only reason we checked to see who sings...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...the song is because the song was outstandingly terrible.<P> I jumped up to turn off the speakers, and Scary just had to wait to find out the name of the offender...

  • July 16, 2010, 11:27 p.m. CST

    NILLA! How the hell are you, anyway?

    by ScaryWaitress

    How's winter? Do you get snow, where you are?

  • July 16, 2010, 11:28 p.m. CST

    ...you have to let them grow on you, ST...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...No Cars Go is one of my personal favorites.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:30 p.m. CST

    ST... for the record...

    by ScaryWaitress

    I want to love Arcade Fire. I really do. But the guy is an OK-at-best singer... and the girl grates on my nerves something fierce. Somehow, when a man is doing the "I can't sing but that's why it's cool" bit is tolerable... but when a woman does it, I'm all like, "The only reason you're in the band is because you're having sex with the GUY who can't sing." Anyway, not my favorites. Unfortunately. But they do have some great tracks.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:31 p.m. CST

    Heh. Yeah, looks like I cleared the room at DocBack.

    by ScaryWaitress

    Surprised, anyone?

  • July 16, 2010, 11:31 p.m. CST

    Yeah, instead of remaking Edge of Darkness

    by white_vader

    Maybe they should have done a director's cut of Gran Turismo and Clint could blow him away with a shotgun "Fucking Mel! Get off my lawn!"). Or his damn finger. 'Cause Clint is just that cool. As long as Mel doesn't have Max's double-barrel shorn-off on him, of course. <p> That reminds me though. I wasn't sure what to think about Clint's singing on the end credits of his film. I mean, the guy never had a big voice, and now it's barely more than a croak!

  • July 16, 2010, 11:33 p.m. CST

    That whole Shelter Clone thing

    by white_vader

    Screws with my head! I haven't been game!

    Scary, freezing my man-tits off.

    by white_vader

    Yeah, we're SUPPOSED to get snow, living in the mountains. But while it's more than cold enough and the winter winds have been howling, just not the right conditions for it. Best snow we've ever had was the weekend over a decade ago we moved up from Sydney. So typical. It's just been hella-cold. Gas heaters, 24/7. <p> It's hilarious watching your dog trying to decide whether a snowball is something you chase or drink/eat though! <p> My wife won't let us live any further down the mountains because we're just above the snow line.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:37 p.m. CST

    Clint can do whatever he wants.

    by ScaryWaitress

    He can sing and tap-dance, for all I care. He's one of the few movie giants who has not been made lesser through any of his own actions, or through a fading of his talent. <P> Clint is what all filmmakers should aspire to be... and should emulate. KEEP YOUR PERSONAL SHIT PERSONAL. <P> Paul Newman was of this school... except he even stayed married to the same woman for 40+ years, and ran a charity organization that lives on past his death. But, he's a saint.

  • July 16, 2010, 11:38 p.m. CST

    I hear you, man. <P> I shall enjoy this fucking expensive, low-production Pinot Noir on your behalf. <P> 7th glass alert! <P> (Of course, most of them were dinky 4-oz Champagne flutes, but who's counting?!?!?)

    I like the DocBackers...

    by ScaryWaitress

    but they aren't very useful. None of them seem to be true students of The Doctor. Just amateur philosophers. <P> Disappointing. I thought I was going to get to have some real conversations.

  • July 17, 2010, 12:08 a.m. CST

    ...not sure. I know it's suppoesed to be not so good...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...for stress and your eyes. Something about fluorescent light strobing or pulsing imperceptibly, causing tension and sometimes headaches...<P> Something like that. Also, fluorescent light is cold...so shit for judging color correctly.

    Maybe it's the lighting that caused your irradiated invulnerability, not some Faustian pact. I take it back. But I don't think I can help you track the little blighter down, being that I sold my own soul many years ago on entering the advertising field.

    Your anger is misplaced, dear Scary

    by white_vader

    Direct your outrage where it will join my own - Genndy has ALWAYS said he pleaded to get them to let him finish Jack up, in a few final eps, a tv movie, a feature, whatever. And not even just back then either. He said he'd STILL love to come back and do it all justice. He feels shitty about it too, from all I've read. He's on our side. <p> But those Cartoon Network fuckers that canned it deserve every bit of wrath directed at them. Probably the same fuckwits that are turning the channel into the Cartoon Equivalent of MTV: A cartoon network full of kids' reality shows and sitcoms instead of actual CARTOONS. <p> Makes it all the more hypocritical that they actually are releasing this one... but hey, I'll take what I can get. I'm just starting to port all my old Dexter's Lab VHS tapes over to digital for posterity, as they've never seen fit to release that one on DVD either. Thank God after years and years of making squillions they finally decided to put all the Powerpuff stuff out in a proper set. I gave up trying to watch those things on telly they'd move them around so much...

He DUMPED Jack like an old girlfriend. <P> I hate Cartoon Network too, don't misunderstand... the bullshit they air is pathetic. But GENNDY is an a-hole. HE dissed Jack. <P> WHATCHA! Gotts fuck Jack, fuck fucking Jack, GotTA fuck Jack... <P> OK, that's the Pinot talking, but I'm really upset. *sniff*

    Where did you ever read or hear that, Scary?

    by white_vader

    It goes against everything I've seen. From memory I think he even talks about it on some commentary track somewhere. But I getcha being upset. It's an affront. Good God that show is great. IS great. <p> Cartoon Network actually pulled the show even before the 4 seasons they had initially ordered could be fully aired. Their message was loud and clear. Of course, like many other CN shows, if you can't FIND when the thing is on, how the hell can you watch it and give them their precious ratings? He also stuck with Dark Crystal for a long time before the iteration I was on. <p> As for that dirty Scot, oh I see it. Weedy, goofy lookin', but as we all know intelligence, wit and charisma trump looks every time. I still think McGregor has the cheekiest grin ever though. <p> Geez, I'm comin' over a bit metro myself! Not that there's anything wrong with that. Hey, I'm an artist!

    Hi, Whitey...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

  • July 17, 2010, 1:09 a.m. CST

    Cheese, you sorta gotta see it.

    by white_vader

    It's not exactly manga (or Animé to get pedantic about it). More influenced by Kurosawa and old movies & series like The Samurai. But yes, with a huge heaping dose of the Lone Wolf & Cub (he even meets them in one sly episode). And the influences in the stories, while retaining the rigid road move/quest Japanese format, range all over the place. There's a great giant of a Scot who's a fantastic character, they do a double-epidode that's arguably a better retelling of the battle of Thermopylae than 300 (Jack and the Spartans), and plenty of groovy mythologically-based stuff form different cultures. Plenty of sci-fi fun too. You gotta check it out dude. <p> Like anything, you shouldn't let the tail wag the dog - I'm not big on Manga generally either, but like everything else, most is crap, some is great, and a tiny proportion is bloody fantastic. Jack is definitely in that tiny proportion. Hell, you don't even have to dig cartoons to like it!

  • July 17, 2010, 1:10 a.m. CST

    sorta gotta

    by white_vader

    what me sayin'?

  • July 17, 2010, 1:16 a.m. CST

    God, what AM I sayin'?

    by white_vader

    Not arguably better than 300, DEFINITELY better. Than the movie anyway - while they DID make it look like the book/comic, it's dramatic structure sucked fuckin' arse. And they didn't even have to do much to fix it! Into the third act it should have been a ticking clock where the tension was ever-tightened as the hordes got closer and their numbers and strength diminished. Stamina failing even as the stakes got higher so that the final stand was a triumph of spirit and purpose as the only thing they had left to fight with, thus reducing the characters to their spiritual core and the story to it's thematic essence. <p> [slams fist!]

  • July 17, 2010, 1:17 a.m. CST

    I have never heard a bad word about it, Whitey...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    Hey Scary....

    by Fuzzyjefe

    I know you're out for the day, but I also know you like to play tb catch-up sooo... <p> I just read some of your posts in the Docback and wanted to address one little thing. You stated that folks with spirituality or religious leanings may lead more 'fulfilled lives' than yourself. Allow me to kindly disagree. It seems to me that many of those folks 'do good' BASED ON those beliefs. Whether it's because they're taught they should or out of 'fear of hell' or other such punishments. <p> THAT SAID, someone like yourself (most days myself, for that matter; lots of ingrained Baptist guilt) does good for others and lives a good life simply because it's RIGHT. And that is very fulfilling. Humanity is capable of terrible evils, but it's the wonderful kindnesses that should give hope. <p> Here endeth the socio-religious-insano post-rant-babble. :)

  • July 17, 2010, 12:03 p.m. CST

    Allow me to amend...

    by Fuzzyjefe

    Perhaps it would be more accurate to state 'TRIES to do good for others and live a good life'; 'cause some days it's harder than others.

  • July 17, 2010, 12:39 p.m. CST

    Without getting too deep in this...

    by ScaryWaitress

    Fuzzy, I was referring to INNER life. You know, "enlightenment" and "cosmic destiny" and all that stuff I don't buy into, that other people do. The idea than everything happens for a reason, and there's this big plan that we're all a part of, but can't see. <P> I'm actually right there with you, on doing things because they're RIGHT, not become some God decreed it to be so. I actually believe that, once I cleared out all the 10-Commandments-style stuff, I became MORE ethical in my daily life. When you take out the whole idea of doing everything for an ultimate reward of endless bliss in Heaven, and THIS is all there is, I am MORE compelled to make this life better, not less... and the idea that, if I do bad things, some God will just forgive it all, all I need to do is ask? THAT is the loophole that allows religious people to be terrible people. It makes me angry. <P> Anyway, we are OUT! Beachtime, bitches!

    4.40 and the girl is waking me up to tell me about her nightmare.

Then her cousin is washing her bowl and the water goes too hot and she's screaming "Hot hot hot!!!" and screaming... <p> I think my daughter had the whole "we all scream for ice cream" around the wrong way... <p> What's all this about shapely arses in bikinis now?

    I have seen INCEPTION

    by YackBacker

    I enjoyed it quite a bit.<p> My first impression after it ended was "I haven't seen this kind of movie before." And it's not that there aren't elements of it that draw on past films (because there are actually several) but this movie goes a little further in pushing the audience into oblivion. It's a ballsy piece of pop-entertainment. It's not an art-house flick either- this is a movie about emotions wrapped in riddles and covered in bullet-holes. <p> I don't want to spoil anything for the Pebrew nation, so I won't discuss the details. I like Nolan's films overall, and I think this one is towards the top of his list. I may even rate it as his best, but I need to re-screen MEMENTO before I start giving away that film's championship belt.<p> Some details (non-spoilers): <p> Acting: DiCaprio is very good- and it's nice to see him not working for Scorsese for a change. Marion Cotillard is stunning... she has huge cans and nice eyes. Hipster Hero JGL is very good, basically playing himself with guns. Tom Hardy is very good as a guy with even bigger guns. Watanabe is Japanese throughout the film. Ellen Page looks like a 10 year-old boy when standing next to Cotillard and Cillian Murphy is believable as a very rich guy.<p> Script: Surprisingly sparse on the technical aspects, which I appreciated. I don't want to know how certain things work, otherwise the film becomes an operational manual. There are some funny lines too. <p> Direction: Nolan is getting better at action, but he's still not an action director. His set pieces don't have much zip to them, I feel like I'm watching a guy lay brick- very workmanlike.<p> Cinematography: Wally Pfister is the man.<p> Score: I enjoyed it- but I didn't really hear any John Barry/OHMSS stuff as some have claimed. The guitars by Johnny Marr were more rock than jazz.<p> Best part: The last 30 minutes were intense and challenging. I really liked how Nolan tied it up. Now, as for the very end (last shot), I liked that moment a lot. Others hate it. C'est la vie.

    Just popping in for a mo. It actually took me a whole weekend to catch up a few weeks back and I wrote replies to peebs, but by the time I got up to date I thought the time was past/had passed. Happens sometimes... I'm such a slow-arse. <p> Peebs were saying some crazy/inaccurate stuff at the time, and that always get's my devil's advocate going. All I can remember you saying was something about Cornbread, and it just made me remember how much I liked cornbread at Boston Market. We had a few of those down-under, but I guess they weren't different enough form Sizzlers and all that so they didn't last long. Not that my blood-sugar will allow me to eat that sweet, sweet cornbread now anyway...

    by white_vader

    And sometimes ever bigger stuff fails here due to quality, which is weird. Taco Bell tried for a few years, but didn't last. Even the mighty McDonalds of Coffee, Starbucks, didn't cut it and now have only a few strategic outlets in certain locations. It's a bitch when they're out of that Chai tetra-pack stuff they do that my wife loves and I gotta trek all over the countryside to find it. She really does appreciate that though. Neither of us drink coffee. <p> And there was some falling out between the owners (husband & wife I think) of Burger King over here, so there was the batshit crazy situation of the initial "Hungry Jacks" which sold all the Burger King stuff anyway just with their logo (still called the burgers the same thing etc) different - and actual Burger King selling the same damn thing for a while. In the end we went back to Hungry Jacks. Still selling Whoppers and all that. <p> I was sorta horrified to find out from a mate in L.A. about America's lax fast food quality laws that are set by each state or something (Scary? Maybe you can clarify)? And there are only a couple of chains that serve grade 1 beef and so on. Yikes. Lips and anuses for all! Actually I love it when they deface the billboards that say "Grade a Angus" beef. Always gets a laugh/snicker from me.

    I have two girls staggering about the place in a plastic Cyberman helmet I got at Toys 'r' Us for 10 bucks with voicechanger and all that. <p> Seven-year-old girls ominously intoning I AM THE CYBA-MANNN while semi-blind (it's pretty cool Mum, even if I can't breathe) is pretty funny. Still sounds girly even with the voice effect! Even funnier when doing the voices with no helmet. <p> Better than the other week when one was STILL wandering around with a bucket on her head (no, she's never seen Parenthood) and giggling. And this is the one that can't walk straight anyway! Crazy kids... <p> Of course it didn't last. The "One of you will end up crying" effect in full force.

    Yeah Leo's my fave.

    by white_vader

    As for Kangaroo meat, it all depends. They have to be very careful about the population. Sometimes licenses are given out for culling, but it all depends, due to rampant hunting in the old days. Roos are a bit like rabbits and used to swell to plague proportions according to trigger-happy farmers who weren't happy about roos easily jumping fences and eating their (foreign ring-in) sheep's grass. I doubt they were ever exported for Jack in the Box though (good pun though - boinggg!). I mean jeez, those things stand on their tails and use their hind legs to disembowel other roos/people! <p> In the Eighties most Americans thought Roos hopped down the main street of the cities too. On a past trip there I was actually asked what language we speak there. Huh! By the way that trip wasmore recent than you think, and not the first time that question was asked of us. Maybe "Jaywalking" IS a valid vox-pop! I keed, I keed, but Americans do get all hot under the collar when foreigners suggest they know bugger-all about countries outside their own and see all the chest thumping and faux-saluting as jingoism rather than patriotism... sigh. <p> Not painting you all with the same brush, just the shmoes. You know I love youse guys!

    I hear you man. My first 18 years was Baptist. Funny thing is, I only THOUGHT that was hard core. Met a girl when I was in college, spent some time with her at a Church of Christ (what? she was a cutie) and found out what HARD CORE really meant. <p> As an example: her parents and 2 sisters didn't speak to her for 3 or 4 years after she decided that she didn't really believe that way. Can't have anything to do with a sinner when they know better, y'see. Your own flesh and blood, hung out to dry. <p> THAT was what really pushed me away from 'religion'....the fact that one of the genuinely nicest men I'd ever met could decide to have nothing to do with his super-sweet daughter because she doesn't wanna go to church anymore. Cuh-razy. And I meant that above; her daddy was REALLY a kind, decent fellow....just crazy for Jesus. No thank you. I'll have a helping of decency for ALL please.

Our dd has all kinds of toys. What does she like best? Sitting in the bin we keep them in. Crazy little monkeys. <P> *all prices are complete guesses based on zero research. No, I could not be bothered to google. It's too early.

    by Hi5Effect

    I tried to give him an Xmas gift, having arrived late. The poor kid was so overwhelmed by gifts and unrwapping and forced hugs to creepy uncles (me) and scary old aunts that he just ran away crying, wanting nothing to do with the gift. Christmas is a confusing time for kids.

    by YackBacker

    Pebrews need to talk out INCEPTION as a group.<p> Fuzzy, re: the audience's reaction- what puts this film above something like A.I. for me is that it doesn't rest on its esoteric laurels to tell the story. I love A.I. but as a piece of entertainment, it's lacking in several ways. INCEPTION takes a different tact, and it's a much stronger film. I think INCEPTION will do quite well at the box office.

    A.I. knocked me on my ass when I saw it

    by YackBacker

    I loved the visuals, I was fascinated by the sci-fi elements (especially the end sequences) but revisiting it years later, I realize the film is tonally fucked. It's all over the place- a really schizo piece of filmmaking. I wonder just how ready Spielbergo was to make this movie. The stuff I like about A.I. is still there for me, but I would say objectively the film is a bit of a mess.

  • July 18, 2010, 8:27 p.m. CST

    I'm glad ya'll enjoyed it....

    by Fuzzyjefe

    but I felt it was a HUGE miscalculation to make the protagonist a machine. It only SEEMED to be alive. The A in A.I. stands for 'artificial' after all. No real feelings there. To ask the audience to sympathize with that was a mistake...in my opinion. <p> Of course, I have that same opinion about T2, Threepio and Artoo...any other machine that is anthropomorphized. It's just a macine. <p> Not the Transformers though. They're 'organically mechanized' or some shit.

  • July 18, 2010, 8:30 p.m. CST

    It almost strikes me as a self-imposed challege...

    by Fuzzyjefe

    on the part of Spielberg. Sort of a 'can I make people care about a machine?' test..... <p> For me, nope. But it was visually impressive. Just not emotionally resonant.

  • July 18, 2010, 8:31 p.m. CST

    ...Yack, would you say that when you revisited it...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...it no longer worked for you...or that you saw that it was tonally all over the place but still liked it?<P> Reason I ask, is that quite a few movies I really like frequently get accused of suffering from multiple tonality disorder. I guess to me, if you can manage to get all those flavors into a movie and have it hold together...that's a virtue. If it works.

  • July 18, 2010, 8:36 p.m. CST

    Rachel Wiesz' eyebrows

    by YackBacker

    They are correct for the period in which the first MUMMY takes place, but her hotness factor went up ten-fold when she let them grow in for the sequel.

    She is Awesomely Breathtaking

    by ColonelFatheart

    in AI, despite her unappealing personality. It's because he's programmed to love her. When he sees "her" at the end, it is merely his idealized version of her, a projection of the love he was programmed to have. This makes it all the more disturbing/affecting/tragic for me.

    by white_vader

    Oh Kylie, with your pert little rounded bum, and your perfectly shaped legs... not much of an actor (although I actually thought she was great in the Titanic Dr. Who ep), much better singer than she was at the start but ooh bebeh, what a little minx! I toyed with the idea a few years ago of having a bash at an Elvgren (greatest classic pin-up artist ever) style pin-up calendar with her. Then recently I saw a pin-up style photo of Isla Fisher (Mmm those Aussie girls) in a pink sweater (Angora natch). Most modern girls, actresses or models just don't "get it" in terms of the balance of innocence/self knowledge that the old pin-up stuff requires. Exactly the same thing as all the poor-man's Rockwell photo disasters. There's a delicate line there - the subject being self-aware of the inherent contrivance, yet acting innocent or theatrically because they know we want to be in on the joke too. That was the final flourish in both Elvgren and Rockwell's tableaus. The whole thing was FUN, and icluded the viewer. Hell, even then most of their contempories couldn't get it right. <p> Oh. Just found the link to that Fisher pic. She's got a bit of the Janet Leigh's about her there I think. And no, I'm not talking about the norks (full eight-inch separation! - Scary will get that ref)... but funily enough when I googled it, the site was "Celebrity sweater puppies"!

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    I finally used the cool name I had thought of and signed in some where, some time around when Michael Jackson died last year….<p>I found my way to an Apollo 11 node where I sided with those who questioned the official landing claims. I chose that because I have spent a lot of time researching the topic and have an opinion based on that research…<p>I was ridiculed, deemed an unfit father, and challenged to step over the line into insanity…even by people whom I consider friends today…GOOD TIMES…<p>This AICN forum is very inefficient considering all the instant ‘Dick Tracy’ video phone/watches iPod/druids/druids technology available and accessible to each of us upon request…<p>Yet ,we come here …this forum requires style, limited ability to convey irony or humor and consistently shifting rules and players.

    The Pedalback thru newbie's eyes....

    by Fuzzyjefe

    Can't sleep, thought I'd put in my two.....so here goes: <p> I was just sort of lurking around the fringes of AICN, having the occaisional civil discourse with AsimovLives; suddenly a post directed at me from a certain master of the leg sweep. "C'mon and join us." I had to see what was up with that. <p> The Pedalback means a warm welcome. It means the freedom to jibber-jabber, jab, and take it in return. <p> The Pedalback means I laugh out loud at least a few times every day. It means I can discuss movies, music, religion, food, and the wonders of boobies. <p> The Pedalback means I can flirt with a wonderful married lady & have her husband laugh along with me. It's a welcome port in the storm of these here talkbacks. <p> Basically, the Pedalback is a spot at the bar in this wretched hive of scum and villainy. I can chat with good folk from around this wonderfully wierd world and feel right at home. <p> Thanks PB'ers. You've all made me feel better on bad days, and made good days better. You're the good ones. There's way too many of the bad.

    WHO TARD'D

    by Six Demon Bag

    THE GUNFIGHTERS<P>FIRST DOCTOR. SEASON 3. SERIAL 25.<P>wow this was a nice departure. The doctor and steven and DODO (vicki is gone..shme i never got to see her leave yet..she worked well comically off the doctor.) land in the wild ild west.<P>yee-haw. well, tombstone, arizona, to be precise. anyways..its good they land there, cause the doctor has a toothache and needs a dentist. so he moseys on down to the local dentist, who just so happens to be doc holliday. he and the earps have been kicking shit up with the clantons recently. wyatt takes company with the other time travellers to keep them safe.<P>back at the saloon, the doctor is encountered by some of clantons gang, who overhear him announce him as DOCTOR and they mistakenly think hes doc holliday. the real holliday is ever so happy that someone else is gonna take a bullet for him but his girl is a little more noble and intervenes. wyatt steps in and saves the day and the doctor from getting killed and in the melee, dodo is taken by doc holliday for insurance.<P>meanwhile, steven is captured by the clantons and is going to lynch him in hopes of smoking the doctor (who they still think is holliday) out and fight. yet again, wyatt stops the lynching. during a jailbreak, the clantons kill wyatts brother and johnny ringo takes steven hostage. wyatt swears vengeance and asks both docs for help. our doctor abstains and the most famous (and anachonistically lengthy) gunfight occurs in glorious black and white.<P>before the bodies of johnny ringo and the clantons are cold, the doctor, steven and dodo make a break for the TARDIS.<P>ill be honest, i love TOMBSTONE and WYATT EARP and pretty much any story i can get on that gunfight. each fight is different, yet i still dont think any of them have gotten it right..this one was like 5 minutes of gunblazing glory and the generic chest clutching when shot is hilarious. its god to see another facet of holliday in this..hes a cold blooded killer and not above hiding behind a woman.<P>another thing i liked is the ballad that plays sporactically thru the serial like in the old time westerns.<P>im starting to notice some similarities between DOCTOR WHO and STAR TREK, and the stories that TREK borrowed a year or two after WHO did them. hmmm.<P>all in all--a great departure from the other serials and very entertaining. I watched this on VHS because it is unfortuantely not yet on DVD, though all the episodes are available.<P>NEXT: THE WAR MACHINES

SERIAL 27.<P>the doctor and dodo (steven apparently is gone now..i hate not being able to see these in order) land in the swinging 60s london and are drawn to the newly built post office tower. (nice tourism plug for london!) there they meet a professor (brett) who has created a supercomputer that will control all the computers in the world. i think i knew how this was gonna play out..<P>while the docotr hangs out with the professor, dodo goes out on the town with polly, who is the professors secretary. shes a smoking british lass who is immediately drawn to a sailor named ben, whos pissed about being on shore leave..but not for long cause he gets into a bar fight, protecting the honor of polly. during the aftermath, the barphone rings and dodo answered..on the other end is the WOPR (re: supercomputer) and brainwashes her.<P>we soon find out that the WOPR has gotten it hooks into the professor and some of his assistants, but it wants to get ahold of the doctor too. a brainwashed dodo attempts to get him on the phone to be brainwashed, but the doctor is able to free himself. the plan is uncovered henceforth and the time for action is now.<P>it seems that the WOPR, like ms. skynet, wants to rule the world and has organized an simu-assault across the globe. the WOPR has forced the brainwashed scientists and professors et al to make killer robots (who look like thirds stringers from BATTLEBOTS) and they begin to run wild in the streets..the doctor, with dodo and ben and hot ass polly and the army stop the robots and make an attempt to destroy the WOPR. the docotr traps a battlebot and reprograms it to destroy the WOPR, in effect stopping the global attack. humanity is saved. fuck yeah!<P>the doctor heads back to the TARDIS and while waiting for his companion, ben and polly approach him with a message that dod wont be joining him, wherever he may be heading to. unfazed, the doctor tells them to back off and not too discreetly steps into the blue police box. with a WTF look, ben and polly comply and begin to walk away, but then remember the key (to the TARDIS) that dodo gave them to return to the doc. after a few raps on the door, the use the key and enter the TARDIS, just as dematerializes to....<P>great adventure this round..im starting to get the hang of the show..i just wish i was able to watch them in order. id ont really like seeing new people all of a sudden, and not knowing the hows and whys they are there..but itll get better in later seasons, because they are mostly available.<P>hot ass polly...i DO hope shes around. like scary, an accent can do something fierce!<P>NEXT: THE MOONBASE

    I think it was Thursday or Friday afternoon, during "All Things Considered" on NPR, they were talking to a writer who posts his writing mistakes on his website. He says he has a lot of weird books in his library that he likes (his wife jokingly says they are for research.) Anyway, he named a few off, and one that made me laugh was YOU ARE GOING TO PRISON. I can only imagine buying that on Amazon or checking it out at the library.

  • July 19, 2010, 11:19 a.m. CST

    From Amazon:

    by STLost

    The U.S. keeps a higher percentage of its population behind bars than any other nation in the world. As incarceration becomes more and more popular, wouldn't it be nice if someone provided guidance for innocents--and others--caught up in the toils of the judicial and correctional systems? Well, Hogshire has. Providing down-to-earth advice for and hints on attitude at all steps of the road from arrest to death row, he proffers the chance of survival in an environment usually wrapped in rumors and fear. Indeed, survival is what his book is all about. By affording the potential convict a somewhat more realistic appraisal of the dangers of prison life and workable responses to them, Hogshire makes it a little more likely that someone who isn't already jail-wise will survive long enough to make it through the learning curve. Hogshire has filled a totally empty niche in the reference ecology.

    SHERLOCK does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    SHERLOCK HOLMES mini review by The Dojo.<p> I know Conti has been a strong advocate of this movie (I think he's still resting after his epic 'settle it in the ring' flame war with MJs) but it didn't do too much for me.<p> An agreeable watch, for sure - but not a movie that resonated much with me nor one that i'll watch again in a hurry.<p> Downey Jnr and Jude Law are a decent pairing and I tend to like Guy Ritchie's particular brand of direction. However in this case I thought the material was not a good match for Ritchie's stylized techniques. The washed out color and the rather over use of CGI made the hole flick feel a little artifical for my tastes. I like historical / period films to 'transport me' to another time and place but this felt too false and 21st Century to do that. the visuals reminded me in fact of VAN HELSING - not a good thing!<p> But there's plenty of good stuff too. In particular the way Holmes envisions landing a sequence of crippling blows in slow motion before we shift back into real time to see his planned attack pay off. Very cool. The final montage in which Holmes spells out the evil plan and shows us clips of seemingly random things that explain how he formed his deductions.<p> 2.5 stars from The Dojo

    A Classic Pedalback Post:

    by Stabby

    by Mel Gibsteinberg, Aug 15th, 2009: Damn Anonymoose, let me help you son. First, your Pokeydokey, just sounds like a game for fairies and nerds, so drop the game friend, for the love of Mel, just leave it alone. Next, pick up a bottle of bubbly, it doesn't have to be Dom Perignon, it can be just some no name brand, but if you can, try and make it a French no name brand. If it doesn't have French on it, take out a gold colored sharpy and just scribble flowery looking scrawl and shit, no one can understand those loopy French anyway. Okay, so, take the bubbley, and two glasses, and show up on your gals front door in dress shoes, nice socks, a slick tight dealers hat, and nothing else. Also, have a Mr. Bubble Magic Bubble maker shoved up your cornhole, so as you are standing there in the buff, it looks like bubbles are rising from your ass. Chics dig that. When your gal opens the front door, just flash her that smile, and say "hey baby, it aint that bad, how bout you come over here and have some vintage juice, and then when you are done with that, you can have some champagne." Oh and while you say vintage juice, make sure you stroke your unit, so she gets what you are talking about. Trust Mel, that act has landed me more cooter than I can count, its a gem. And I'm giving it to you, cause its late, and I am pretty drunk myself.

    by FlickaPoo

    ...I'd give it a solid 3, because accompanied by a good bottle of wine it made for a most pleasant evening...but I could feel the movie exiting the back of my skull just as quickly as it entered through my eyes and ears.<P> I thought the chemistry between Holmes and Watson was great. I think Conti particularly liked the fight scenes, especially since everyone was bashing Holmes as martial artist. I agree with Conti on that one...Holmes' Eastern fighting style enthusiasm was integrated very well, and the fight scenes kicked ass.<P> I'd recommend it for a fun evening...just don't expect it to leave much of an impression.

My mom dropped my brother and I off at the mall, to watch the movie, while she went grocery shopping. I think we liked it. I think it sticks more in my mind because it was a traumatic move (in my mind). My friends in Boise would be going to jr. high together. I would be starting a new jr. high knowing no one. The He-man movie was like a safety blanket for me and my brother.

The more theatrical the better.<p> ... but hey it worked for FLASH GORDON (which featured one of Branagh's troupe, Brian Blessed), so you never can tell? Maybe he'll pull something really unique out of the hat.

    Sherlock Holmes - I liked it

    but I totally agree about a bit too much CGI, when it's not needed. This is not a film about giant robots, or if it's to be used, like say in Zodiac, make it seamless.<p>Jude and RDJ were very good together.

    by Six Demon Bag

    THE MOONBASE<P>SECOND DOCTOR. SEASON 4. SERIAL 33.<P>The doctor (new model!) and polly (hell yeah!) and ben (cockblocker) and jamie (who?) land on the moon in the not too distant future. the companions, haivng never been to the moon, want to run out in play in the sand. scottish jamie quickly hurts hisself and they have to go to the nearest station to save him. the titular moonbase is a station where the earths weather is controlled by a no-nonsense crew. a gravitron is the preferred method to make sure no storms and bad weather hurt the futuristic people of earth.<P>but the moonbase crew has problems of their own when the travellers arrive..crewmemebers have been getting sick and falling into comas. while jamie is in sickbay, he speaks of a phantom he keeps seeing. polly recognizes the phantoms likeness as a CYBERMAN, a race of robot men who are pretty threatening towards the doctor and his friends.<P>polly tells the doctor that she is afraid that cybermen are on the moon and are behind the people getting sick. the doc doesnt really believe her and continues his quest for a cure to the sickness. the cybermen finally do make themselves known to the people of the moonbase and go forth with their plan, now that they have weakened the crew. they attempt to take over the gravitron to cause mass weather damage. the gang with some of the moonbase crew resist the initial assault of the cybermen, keeping them outside of the moonbase. the cybermen counterattack and aim a giant cannon at the moon surface, threatening to destroy the moon unless they cease their resistance.<P>the doctor trumps their move and aims the gravitron at the moon surface, shaking all the cybermen all the moon surface and into the cold nether regions of space. after the doc repositions the gravitron towards earth, he departs the moonbase with his companions.<P>this one was kinda disorienting..i probably should have skipped it for now, but hey, thats not how i do things. two episodes have been erased, with only the soundtracks surviving..not giving me much polly to look at. bummer. plus we got a new guy, scot jamie, who im assuming they picked up some time in the past, by the way he freaked out on the moon. i mean, who HASNT played on the moon?! i hear the cybermen are big enemies of the doctor so im expecting to see more of them..here they looked like tin men..not too threatening, but at least they can climb stairs..so they got that going for them.<P>i guess i should comment on the new incarnation of the doctor. hes..well hes younger and a little more feisty than the first one. jsut when id gotten use to the cranky old bastard..they switch it up on me. we'll see how doc 2.0 does..right now im not too impressed.<P>NEXT: THE EVIL OF THE DALEKS

    by FlickaPoo

    ...of variety in locations and especially the light. Victorian London is going to be all gray and foggy, but from what I can remember, HOLMES seemed to be shot all in the same weather and all at the same time of day.<P> Even a good video game knows that you have to mix up the settings (day, night, open environment, claustrophobic tunnels, whatever...) to give a sense of time passing and a journey accomplished.<P> In addition to the story, I suspect that contributed to the movie's lack of memorable impact.

    THE EVIL OF THE DALEKS<P>SECOND DOCTOR. SEASON 4. SERIAL 36. AUDIO ONLY<P>The doctor and jamie are in london (from the previous adventure i presume) and are chasing after the TARDIS which has been stolen. They arrive at an antique store and begin looking for the TARDIS, which sets off a booby trap, knocking them unconscious. the antique store owner drags them into a time machine that he has hidden in the corner of his shop.<P>the travellers awake a century in the past. THe antique shop owner (waterfield) and his partner (maxtible) have been forced to work with the daleks after they kidnapped the shop owners daughter. the shopkeeper was to lure the doctor into the hands of the daleks.<P>at the mercy of the daleks, who vow to destory the TARDIS if he doesnt comply, the doctor performs experiments to find the HUMAN FACTOR, the quality that allows the humans to defeat the daleks. the daleks hope that if they can isolate this trait and inject it into themselves, then they will prove infallible.<P>after the doctor isolates the human factor, the daleks want to test their newfound powers on jamie. jamie is told to rescue the shopkeepers imprisoned daughter, victoria. he succeeds like gangbusters. <P>meanwhile, the human factor is injected into three daleks, who become very playful and friendly, much to the delight of the doctor. unfortunately they are transported to the daleks homeworld. maxtible, hoping to cash in on the promises the daleks made, betrays his partner and travels to the dalek planet, where he himself is betrayed for not bring the daleks the doctor.<P>regardless the doctor and company are in pursuit and head to the dalek capital city..where they are captured and brought to the emperor dalek. (sounds like JEDI)the emperor dalek explains its plan all along was to isolate the DALEK FACTOR and inject it into humans. maxtible was the first attempt, and he becomes a dalek.human hybrid. next, the emperor wishes to alter the doctor. they inject him with the dalek factor. satisfied, the dalek emperor begins to send his dalek drones through the archway to revitalize them with the dalek factor. all the while, the doctor, faking his dalek infection (its only works on humans, and he aint a human, baby!) frees his companions. and the doctor pulled a switcharoo!! the daleks passing throught the arch become human and begin to rebel against the emperor. as they flee the destroyed city, waterfield, the shopowner, is shot and the doctor tells him as he dies that they will take care of his daughter. his death will not be in vain, the doctor reassures him, because the daleks are once and for all..dead..<P>this is much better than it sounds..i probably didnt do it justice..but this was a good serial. i like jamie..hes brash and a scrapper and doenst hesitate yelling at the doctor, who in turn, is starting to grow on me..this doctor keeps his hand close to his chest, never revealing his full intentions, unlike the previous doc, who was a little too cocky for his own good.<P>the new girl, at present, is a nonentity..we'll see how she plays out.<P>NEXT: THE TOMB OF THE CYBERMEN

    by STLost

    SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER Well, the narrator is leading us up to the death of Owen. If you remember, Owen predicted his own date of death, and his dreamed involved him saving Vietnamese children. His buddy John (narrator) was there in his dream so Owen cuts Johns index finger off so he can't be drafted into the Army and go to Vietnam. But John is still in the dream, which gets Owen wondering. Anyway, we're closing in on the date of his death, and Owen knows it (john doesn't know the date yet, until he reads Owen's diary later) and Owen asks John to come out and visit him in Phoenix (maybe to say goodbye and stuff). It appears that Owen will not die in Vietnam, as his dreams have led him to believe, and so far some of his dream visuals (being above palm trees) is actually Owen landing in Phoenix with a dead soldier's body (he's charged with escorting bodies to families) So I'm assuming we are very close to Owen's death, and it's not in vietnam, and John actually ends up witnessing it. It's like everything is converging on this one date/place/time and John has no clue but Owen does, and he's question his dream (faith perhaps?)

    INCEPTION does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    Non-spoiler mini review by The Dojo.<p> Home from seeing INCEPTION and in the monk-drawn carriage on the way back to the Dojo my good lady and I were discussing the movie. There were only two or three points that neither of us could satisfactorily explain and for a film as brain bending as this that's pretty damn good going (we can maybe talk about these points when all the Peebers are in alignment).<p> In short, it's a fantastic film. A grown up action movie with powerful emotions to boot. Looking for a comparison maybe THE MATRIX crossed with SOLARIS... we were talking about AI earlier and I also thought of that film a little while watching this.<p> All the actors really knock this one out of the park. Even DiCaprio (who I personally dont tend to like much) totally won me over by the end of the film. Cillian Murphy also played his important part to perfection and his big *moment* brought a tear to my eye.<p> Great film - although very much a Nolan movie (so if you don't like his style then you might resist the mindfuck ride this film offers) but for me i'm already looking forward to seeing it again when it comes out on Blu.<p> 5 stars out of 5 from The Dojo.

    by FlickaPoo

    ...one of the things I really liked about AMERICAN GODS is the way it managed to cast a glamour (in the original sense of the word) on regular everyday America. I usually avoid the everyday America of highways and rest-stops and tollbooths whenever possible...it isn't really a place that's normally alive in my imagination, but AMERICAN GODS managed to make the very ordinary extraordinary.

    Back to the Angry Father video...

    by anonymoose

    Some context: <P> http://tinyurl.com/23fm6xz <P> This is why the 11 year old girl, a result of fucking terrible parenting, was trolled by 4chan to begin with. <P> http://tinyurl.com/26jqjz8 <P> "You done goofed!" - A central catchphrase to the meme. <P> Keep in mind that she's 11 years old. She wears revealing clothing, uses make-up, preens for the camera, takes risque photos of herself and puts them online, and uses filthy language. Sounds like the parents done goofed.

    Sold! That was a big part of liking Dark Knight for me. Pitting the two composers against each other yielded some brutal, fantastic stuff. I liked the sickening lurch when the Joker was onscreen. Just a refreshing use of leitmotif that avoided the usual X-files (not the original use but all I can think of for now) slide out of key or spider-music and so on. <p> And yeah, sometimes I have a complete block with, uh... when letters stand for words. Oh the irony.

    What Pedalback Means To ME

    by ScaryWaitress

    I have been less prolific than some of you (I have a child, a full-time job, and being the woman of the house, quite a backlog of womanly duties to perform. For the record, though, Flick cleans the bathroom, so he is a hero and without reproach.) BUT, For the past seven months, knowing that I can come find the Pedalback and hang with a bunch of guys who like the things I like and can carry on a discourse about the finer points of the Aliens script has kept me going. <P> Truth is, I don't make a whole lot of friends in real life. I tend to the solitary side of the spectrum to begin with... and without turning this into a giant therapy session, let's just say that between our living arrangements (in B.F.E.) my interests (chief among them wine that is not Yellowtail, movies, videogames, art, and sarcastic humor) my education level, and my abhorrence of snobbery, I don't really fit in anywhere... except home. <P> AND at the Pedalback. <P> Suffice it to say, but for a VERY brief period in college, I have never fit in in the environs I find myself. I valuse Pedalback because, in spite of this being a virtual gathering, it has become a TRUE meeting of minds. We have come to know each other personally, we have established a place to meet in case THIS site blows up. I do not believe that is the norm for boards like this. <P> We are an interesting, funny, cool bunch of people who were lucky enough to find each other here ans sentient enough to realize it, and perpetuate it. And Subs, if you're reading this, you were integral into making this rag-tag band of geeks what it is, and we miss you... ESPECIALLY the fun, witty you you were just a few months ago. <P> Anyway, I love you guys. This has been a great ride so far. I can't imagine life without it. I know someday it could all be over (sorry for the morbidity there) but I love that we're still here now, and I, for one, will be staying until I am thrown out.

    I'm no true peeber (no time), (long time listener, first time yadda yadda) but from a voyeur's outside perspective, Pedalback on its worst day is funnier, friendlier and more engaging than any Friends or Seinfeld rerun.<P>On its best day it is better than any M*A*S*H rerun, and THAT is a fucking compliment.<P>Thanks for the laughs, thanks for the links, thanks for being a sociological experiment in REAL Internet community that proves that people, even when anonymous and unaccountable for their words, can be sane, civil AND engagingly witty.

The sick thing is, I have two lottery tickets in my purse that are at LEAST a month old... I don't want to check them, because I know in my heart they're losers, but I haven't been TOLD they're losers yet, which means I COULD be walking around with the answer to all of our problems in my purse.

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    to be a part of several groups similar to the Pedal Back in my life time...<p>The first was An Amature Press Alliance (APA) in the late 80's to early 90's, It was a group who worshipped the DC comic Legion of Superheroes. Thei was pre internet so we did it all on paper and mailed it to each other in a complicated process that was expensive...We all met at the Chicago Comic-con (where me and comics creator Bill Willingham spent an afternoon at a tittie bar in Dallas) and then again the next year...I still stay in touch with many of these people, and one of them is dead...I really miss him...<p>The second group was the Art Bell Talkback on Sitchinism and we 'sheltered' at least three times on different boards...I only keep in touch with one of those...but it was a wonderful; enlightening time for me...I miss them...<p>I plan to hang with you guys til AICN gets turned off by Obama's Internet 'Kill-switch'...

    Had to look up Sitchinism. My gut reaction: crazy.

    by Hi5Effect

    But then I got thinking. Honestly it makes more sense than the "Lamb of God, whose blood is shed for thee" schpiel that I was raised with. And while I'm of the persuasion that truth kernels snowballing into epic religiuos narratives is more likely than sentient alien agents taking humanoid shape and altering the course of history, it is only by degrees of likeliness (not degrees of impossibility).<P>Also, I now have an image of Jesus as a Tardis-less Doctor, stranded in Judea, preaching nonviolence and saving fig trees with his sonic screwdriver. Awesome. Best Flannelgraph ever.

    Having dredged up the memory of my dead Klordy Brother…

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    I feel compelled to tell his story as I interacted with him…<p>His name was Mike. We were both Klordy members (See my covers at the shelter…) joining at roughly the same time…He was rude, but hilarious in his rudeness on paper . I found him very funny and insightful…He called me one day, and I really enjoyed talking with him…He was admittedly gay, which was about 30% of our membership if not more. He was funnier than any gay man should be…<p>When we met in Chicago, his snide vulgar remarks about Comic Con attendees had me laughing out loud… in their faces…<p>We went to the bar, and started drinking…I told him that he didn’t act gay…and he told me to look at the old woman at the end of the bar barely holding her drunken head up at 11:30 AM and told me he “Loved women…”, but if he ever “dated one, it would look like that inside of 6 weeks…” <p>I cannot begin to express the relationship we shared as two predatory assholes (with hearts of gold)…there was nothing sexual about it…He was just the first strait talking he-man gay man I had ever been friends with…They are funny, funny, fuckers…My second wife and he were best pals for a while, she being a Jewish fag hag, and all….we even visited him in Palm Springs where I went to my one and only Country Western Gay Bar…<p>I miss him…Not long after I met him he told me his ex-lover had died of Aids…<p>Some years later, he showed up in Vegas and was throwing away a lot of money and never explained why he was there and it had a kinds goodbye vibe to it…<p>Haven’t been able to find him since…

    Lotto - it would help if I actually remembered

    by white_vader

    more than a coupla times a year... but you know, considering all the wankers in the world who are rolling in it and the millions in revenue I've already generated for clients who always cry poor, if we ever do win a mil I'll sorta feel like I've earned it. Arrogant most definitely, but that's how I feel. The real reason I want a buncha money is so I don't have to stress about it constantly the way I do now. I'm sure we all feel that way. <p> But my wife and I agreed that I couldn't stop what I do. It'd just be so nice if it was for enjoyment rather than necessity. Silly me, I was up 'til 5.30 in the morning last night because I'm teaching myself to sculpt. Both traditionally and digitally, so I don't have any bias either way. <p> I find it endlessly fascinating though how snobby people are about folks who work in factories and the like. If you can just do your time, treat it as what it is, leave it there and have no stress, and it lets you do what you want, I think that's incredibly intelligent! Nothing wrong in working for the weekend in my view!

    Why the PB works

    by white_vader

    Although Peebing by snail mail sorta freaks me out with it's ambition and relative inefficiency (I heard the U.S. mail isn't great), I think Cheeses it sorta gets at the flavour of why being here works for us. <p> It would make infinitely more sense to just IM or skype or whatever, but I think the slower pace of TBing actually lends itself to more considered commenting, and a lesson doubly learned when firing off an ill-considered post. <p> Of course the rest of the TBs and my own posts prove me completely wrong!

Your story makes me want to call my friend up and thank him for being alive, and part of a generation that was somewhat better educated about sex.<P>Also, as a younger ex-faithful with a thing for Jewish fag hags... is this a permanent phase? Cause I'm ok with that, I just want to know if I sould get the star of David/rainbow flag tramp stamp removed now or later or not at all?

Makes me want to shoot him a note and thank him for being of a generation that is slightly better sexually educated.<P>Also, I have to ask, as, I presume a younger member of the ex-faithful, is the Jewish fag-hag thing just a phase or should I not remove the rainbow/star of David tramp stamp?

    And gay friends can't decide if they're more in love with my ass in these jeans or my girlfriend's tits in that top. My friend motorboated my girlfriend on stage at his 30th birthday party.

The label has an old school drawing of a kraken attacking a ship, and the font style all over makes the bottle look like something from the 1800s. <p> Anyway, not high now.

    Beyond the great characters and fantastic story, it is also Irving's most perfectly paced book, I think. The foreshadowing and use of mysteries (both major and plot-centric, and incidental) is so skillfull.<P>Widow for One Year is also very good.

Like Hi5 said, probably my favorite Irving for great characters, great place to be, pacing, etc...<P>POSSIBLE SPOILERS<P> I read it a long time ago, and at the time I remember feeling that the The Big Thing at the end was my least favorite part of the story. There had been so much foreshadowing and buildup that it seemed both too much and not quite enough at the same time...but I'm splitting hairs. Great book.<P> By the way, I agree with Hi5's comments on other Irving books too.<P> Hmmm...now I feel like I want to read it again. It's all muddled up after ten years.

    Nah, actually it doesn't surprise me. It's the same blame the victim mentality that most conservatives have. That said, I do agree that there has to be a cut off point to unemployment benefits eventually. But, I don't think that conservatives score any points by calling the unemployed lazy. Stein takes it one step further saying that they have poor personalities. Note that he there is no accounting for people whose jobs were sent overseas. I guess that foreigners are harder working and have better personalities to boot. Wouldn't have anything to do with cheap exploitable labor. Nah.

    Inception was incredible.

    by MadFuckingMax

    It looked and sounded an awful lot like TDK in places too. Director's traits, I guess. Toy Story 3 nearly had me in tears, too.<P><P>More than anything, though, I can't wait to see The Town. That trailer before Inception really fucking grabbed me.

    I didn't see the preview for DEVIL, though, but several people have told me that their respective audiences burst into laughter upon seeing "From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan" on the screen during that preview.

    ...yeah, I hope THE TOWN is good, because...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...I certainly liked the trailer.<P> The CHARLIE ST. CLOUD trailer on the other hand...was like a Mad-Libs grab-bag of tear-jerker plot devices. Wow. I was afraid I was going to have to sit through it twice after I was forced to switch theaters. I went to a noon show, figuring it was my best shot at peace and quiet. Only three people were in the theater (one of them was in MY seat, 4th row center...but that's life). Just as the movie starts a gang from what must be a special needs group home came in with their nurse. I wanted badly to be cool with it, but these guys had problems. Fortunately there was a show starting 20 before mine, so I was able to jump to an earlier time-line in a parallel universe.
