From Dusk Till Dawn

From Dusk Till Dawn (Dimension Collector's Series)Different. I’ve never seen a movie make a complete 180 so quickly. The movie is rolling along fine, actually pretty good and then all of the sudden you’re like, “What the hell just happened?!”

It’s an older movie, from 1996, but was pretty good. The cast included Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis, Salma Hayek, and Cheech Marin. In fact, you could include Cheech 3 times because he played 3 different parts in the film. So Mike Myers and his Austin Powers movies are not the first to have one actor play multiple parts.

Sometimes I like movies that are a little out there, and this one definitely was. It’s not one of my favorites, but it wasn’t to bad to watch. However, I don’t ever plan on watching it again.

Since it’s an older movie I have bump the rating a little bit and give it a B.


Bookmarks And Favorites

For the purpose of this post, BF = bookmark/favorite. Most people use BFs in their browser to make it easy for them to browse their favorite websites with a single click. They also store the sites so that they don’t have to remember the lengthy addresses some sites have. Whoever invented them made it very easy for the rest of us.

I use the Internet all the time for everything. What would you say if I told you that I don’t use BFs in my browsers at all? Not here at home, not at work, or anywhere else. Since I am around computers a lot, I would need to keep several different versions of my BFs synchonized, which would be a major pain in the ass. I also use several different browsers, especially for my web developing purposes. Some browsers will allow you to import/export BFs, but that just adds to the pain and suffereing of updating more lists. Can you see what I’m getting at? A centralized list of BFs is the solution. Something I can access from any computer that has access to the Internet.

A year or two ago, I stumbled upon a site called MyBookmarks while searching for a solution. It is a free service where I store all of my BFs. I can create and remove folders, add and delete BFs, change the colors of the page where I view my BFs, move BFs, sort them…and the list goes on. You can even import BFs from your browser into your MyBookmarks account so that you don’t have to go through the hassle of typing everything in.

So, instead of keeping track of BFs all over the place, I simply set the home page in my browser as the link to my account at MyBookmarks and I have easy access to all of the sites I use. Whenever I open up a browser, I’m greated by a nice list of all my BFs. It makes life a whole lot easier.

Access your bookmarks online — anytime, anywhere.

Halo 2 Update

Bungie has finally released some details about the much anticipated sequel to Halo, which in my opinion is the greatest game ever created for any console.

Halo 2 will ship in Fall, 2004. Please make a note of it.

Read the full release. They have also released the first ever multiplayer screenshot from Halo 2 and it looks SWEET! Now I’m all excited just thinking about it.

Fan Email

I received a great email tonight. It feels good to know that people appreciate the time you spend and that doing something you have fun with is actually benefiting other people. Here is a portion of the email I received:

I was surfing the web today looking for Poker Chip Tricks and I found your web site. All I can say is THIS IS AN AWESOME SITE DUDE!!!…Little did I know that I was going to spend two hours looking at your site…All most forgot to tell you, I e-mailed all my friends that I have on line and told them to check it out also.

Someone just made my day! 🙂

Hack Attack

I felt like I just got done playing in a Gus Macker. The team we played didn’t do anything but reach in the whole game and there was only one ref so he didn’t see much. My arms are red from all the smacks they took. They only had 5 players, but ended up with like 22 fouls. Can you explain to me how a few people didn’t foul out? We won by about 6 points, but it was another ugly game and I played like shit!

The List

On my way to work this morning I was listening to WIOG and they were discussing their lists, which has prompted me to create my own list here on my site.

What is a list? Well, if you could pick anyone in sports, movies, television, modeling, etc. who would be the top 5 people you would want to hook up with?

Underworld

Underworld (2-Disc Unrated Extended Cut)I had mixed feelings when I saw previews for Underworld. Sometimes the vampire movies are good and sometimes they are horrible, but this one turned out to be OK.

Kate Beckinsale did a good job as the lead roll, playing the vampire caught up in the middle of a war between the vampire and werewolf races. She falls in love with a werewolf, which causes quite a controversy in the vampire coven.

Overall, I’d recommend this movie for a one-time viewing, but it wasn’t good enough for me to actually buy it, so I’m glad I borrowed.

I grade it with a B-.


Mozilla Firefox

Get FirefoxMozilla has released a new preview of their next generation browser. Version 0.7 was called Firebird and 0.8 is now called Firefox. I use it as my main browser.

If you are a web developer, the Web Developer and EditCSS extensions are must haves. Some of the other extensions I use are CuteMenus and Tabbrowser.

Try it out, I’m sure you’ll love it!


Once Upon A Time In Mexico

Once Upon a Time in Mexico (Superbit Collection)I wasn’t too sure about this movie when I saw the previews, but thought I’d watch it since a friend let me borrow it. To tell you the truth, I didn’t care for it. It’s not a horrible movie, but nothing spectacular either. One viewing is plenty for me.

The acting was good, but the story just wasn’t believable. There was a lot of action and shooting, but nothing I haven’t seen before. I thought the plot was actually pretty boring. For big names like Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Johnny Depp, Eva Mendes, Enrique Iglesias, and Cheech Marin I really expected a whole lot more.

I noticed a lot of errors in the movie. More than once blood or fruit was splattered on the camera. The greatest part of the movie was a scene where two guys walked out into gunfire and one of them was holding his hands up like a little kid pretending to have guns. Two seconds later, he was magically holding pistols!

I’m going to have to give this movie a C- because it failed to deliver with so many stars in the cast.


Sick

Didn’t feel the greatest this morning, so I decided to call in sick. 😐
