Hey everybody happy daylight savings time. I know it’s been happy for me so far. I got out of work yesterday and the sun was still up. It was beautiful. In fact I even got home before dark. A special treat. Anyway, on Friday Kate and I went to see be kind rewind. Its a Michel Gondry movie with jack black and mos def. mos def works at a VHS video rental store. His best friend Jack Black lives by the power plant and becomes magnetized. This causes him to erase all the tapes on his next visit to the store. To save the store they remake all the movies on their own. I was really excited to see this movie the director is probably the single most creative person on the face of the earth. He uses simple camera tricks for most of his special effects which always seems more impressive than the CG over done mess that most of current movies rely on for entertainment. So did I love the movie you ask? Well yeah……… I thought it was great, but it just seemed to be missing something. I can’t put my finger on it, maybe it was the people sitting behind us that insisted on making comments through the entire show. Why in the name of everything holy would you sit in a theater and say out loud ” oh look at that” when something cool happens. “oh, look at that” really? You really want to make that comment. We are all sitting in a crowded dark theater watching a movie we payed to see. What are the chances we aren’t paying attention to what’s going on in front of us. So please if you talk during movies, don’t. Its making me mad. Not just me by the way, everyone around you wants to slap you, and some day someone might.
Good news everyone I bought guitar hero for the wii on saturday. Yes its really fun. What I thought was cool was that the wiimote nests right in the guitar so no extra batteries needed. Kate and ian came over and got sucked back into the guitar hero black hole. Later Saturday night we all went to see my friend jon hildenstein play a small show in park slope. I’ll say right off that the guy can really play guitar. The show was great and it was really nice to hang out with jon. It’s been at least a year I bet.
Other than that I’ve just been busy with work, and trying to build more organic models in my free time. I build a mummy last weekend and I’m working on a model of a reindeer right now. I’ll post some renderings soon.
