I just realized this morning…I haven’t heard Jordin Sparks’ “No Air” on the radio for the last  two days!  Not even once, let alone three or four times!  Somebody’s slipping!!

I’m a positive guy…

…usually. But I started thinking recently that there are some things that I really don’t like. I thought I’d tell you, since you asked.

I don’t like:

  • dress socks. A drain on our economy, and a blight on society as a whole.
  • calling someone “Buddy.” I don’t mind being called it. But when I use it it sounds like I’m running for Congress.
  • reality television. I can’t stay in the same room with it.
  • Coldplay. Why do people like these guys?
  • not having an accent. I want one, but you all know by now I don’t, so I can’t fake it.
  • people who can’t navigate four-way stops.
  • Lowes (thanks, Karin, for bringing it up). That place was invented, with its infernal cousin, Home Depot, to emasculate me.
  • actors talking about how great their movies are. Really, what else are they going to say?! (Will Smith: “I think audiences are really going to connect with Hancock because…uh, well, actually, don’t bother.”)
  • T-shirts that have jokes on them. That’s like telling the same joke over and over. Sorry-no joke is that good.
  • loving Del Taco. I love Del Taco, but our long-distance relationship has caused me nothing but pain.
  • People who say you can’t like both Star Wars and Star Trek. I’ll like who I want, AstroPunk!

That’s it for now. Thank you for allowing me to enrich your lives.

Hancock in 13 seconds

What a great idea–Superman, instead of crash-landing in Kansas, grows up a homeless bum!  How can you screw that up?  By adding bizarre plot reversals, no villain to speak of, and over-stylized camera work.  Oh, what could have been…

Random Things I Discovered over the Weekend (Fire[no]work edition)

Filed under: Weekend Discoveries — kryptobrent @ 12:19 pm
  • Comparing a three-day weekend to a normal weekend, my capacity to waste time increases by about 33%.
  • Wall-E is a great, great movie. Iron Man now has to share the top spot on my 2008 Best of Summer!
  • “Hancock” is my new word to describe something that could have been truly great, but falls flat (“Dude, this frozen pizza is Hancocked.”)
  • Speaking of pizza, my favorite pizza chain closed up and moved out of Orlando! Donatos, wait, come back! We’ll be better, I promise!!
  • Disney is surprisingly not crowded at 10 pm the day after the 4th.
  • The Japan-originating movie, “The Eye” is okay, but I don’t know who thought it was worthy of an American remake, which, I heard, totally Hancocked.
  • Apparently, very pregnant ladies hate it when their husbands expose their bellies (my friend found this out the hard way).
  • Cold Stone Creamery can’t quite match Marble Slab in quality.
  • Our dog, Dexter, is awesome at helping us meet new neighbors.
  • Gosh, it’s hot.
  • I think about blogging much more than I actually blog.
