Some interesting.... Art in my building.
Nice weekend. Well, minus the windshield which still isn't fixed. Glass guy said he'd call yesterday but never did.

Saturday had dragonflyknight in from out of town so we had him, shortcakeness, not_a_girl, and sculplady over to watch terrible movies. We watched Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, John Carpenter's Pro-Life, and Pervert!. I can not begin to tell you how much a trip that last one was. Wow. Um.. attack penises, lots of boobies and implied incest and sex with meat.
Pro-Life was classy. It had Ron Perlman (Hellboy, the narrator in Fallout) in it! (And Demon Crab babies!)

Sunday we had a nice coffee/brunch with alyska, techdragon and jeffreyp followed by some open houses, lunch, seeing Inglorious Basterds (Yay!), dinner with angels_ember and finally home to start Dexter.

Inglorious Basterds is delightful, with Brad Pitt's accent easily the best reason to see it. It was not the gritty war movie I was expecting. it is more like Wolfenstein 3D on ecstasy.

Monday, man. It's Monday.
First cup of coffee is the best.

House update: The seller accepted the counter offer. Now it goes to the bank.

I hate that Windows steals the focus from the active application for anything. OS X opens applications, alerts, popups, what have you IN THE BACKGROUND so I can, I dunno, keep doing what I'm doing. This is really bugging me today. Especially because Windows a damn slow and the application switch takes 15 seconds before I can switch back to what I was doing.

Also, my secondary monitor no longer does portrait mode. Grr. Argh. Also for no apparent reason as it was working before I moved to my new office.
Your cat wants a massage.
I think I need to be more active on Flickr, JPEG and with general photography advertising.

Why is it that I don't see phallus, but I do see bacon? Does this mean that I have a Freudian fixation on bacon, or that I'm really hungry?

brb Breakfast.

P.S. Your movie reminded me of this for some reason.

Sounds like you had a good weekend. I really liked District 9, very good movie. Don't know if I'll see any of the other movies. :)

Not a Tarantino fan?

Not a fan of this particular movie concept, is all. I know too much about WWII, and the liberties he takes would piss me off, from the reviews I've read. Might catch it on video.

The John Carpenter one actually sounded kind of good.

It was good in a bad way. :)

To tell the truth, if you must watch one of the movies we watched this weekend, I'd go with PERVERT! - More boobies, and it doesn't try to take itself seriously, like the John Carpenter one does... That one was a tad anticlimactic, and didn't give a satisfying end.

Those are meant to be hieroglyphs: the fellow is not an ithyphallic torso, but a fellow squatting on his feet with his thighs/calves/knees stuck out in front of him, it's the determinative for 'god,' though not actually the -word- for 'god' (ntr, it's shaped like a little flag). The oval on top of the stripey ball next to him is a milk jug, it means 'and' or 'like'. Below him are the letters b (leg), d (hand) and... I dunno what the hook thing is.
