Tron

There's a new Tron movie coming out?

Jeff Bridges' character is a bad guy?

Hmmm.... 

Cpt Kirk

 So, all this time I just assumed that the Captain Kirk in the new movie was essentially the same person as the "old" James Kirk, just that the "new" Kirk had no father growing up.

I knew that he'd be a little different than the original character, but it hit me the other day that he would be a radically different person not having had the influence of his father.

Can't wait for the DVD. Amazon sent me an email saying that they are available for pre-order, shipping sometime in November. I've never pre-ordered anything, I might be tempted for this though. I don't know.

Sign at work

There's a sign at work that says:

"Give your back a break: Use safe lifting practices."

I thought the purpose of safe lifting practices was to not break your back. ;D

Watchmen

Saw Watchmen last night.

That was one unique movie.

I'm still processing the experience.

Though I do have one comment. Does anyone else think it odd that the "smartest man on the planet" has a computer password which is the title of one of the books on his desk?

My wedding

Jerry-rigged a way to convert my wedding video which was on VHS to digital.

Part 1



Part 2


Fireworks

The folks round these parts really do like their fireworks.

Yesterday was the first day of legal fireworks sales here and every night from now till the fourth will be filled with the sounds of explosions.

The funny thing though is that folks have set off so many of the damned things tonight that I can smell the gunpowder on the air. 

Why I can not be a religious extremist
Coogah

 I realized today that there are three reasons that I cannot be a religious extremist.

I love life, I love people and I love myself.

In my experience, religious extremism is predicated on the hatred of one or more of those things. It's not -- usually -- called hatred, but I think it really is.

LJ Icons

So I'm looking for some really nice ocean-themed icons. Can't seem to find any. Anyone have a good source? 

Water lesson #3
Coogah
willowwild
Another facet of water that applies to my life are tides.

Most folks perceive me as "wishy-washy." And I think that's a fair assessment, especially taking the last couple years into account.

But it is a part of my personality. Sometimes my emotions run high and sometimes they run low.

Sometimes I am all about one aspect of my life, and sometimes I'm all about something completely different.

It's not that I'm not interested in the first aspect any longer, just that I'm working on the second.

I have cycles. I'll have an easier life when I learn to quit fighting that.

Water lesson #2
Coogah
willowwild
The second thing I realized while pondering the water-type personality thing is that when water sits still for long periods of time it becomes stagnant. And I realized that I'm the same way, I need to move around a bit.

I'm not talking about nervous flitting about, like the people you see that just can't sit still at all. I'm talking about being in one place for too long.

I've been making myself sick the last several years trying to nail myself down to one particular place. And I've just now realized that it is killing me. 

We own the one house in Missouri free and clear. That'll be "home base." But I don't know that I'm planning on being there very much.

Like I said earlier, the sea is calling me something fierce. I think my Beloved and I are going to head home to Florida for the summer. We're both -- more or less -- from Florida. We both went to high school there. That's where we were married. And right now I'm missing it.

I'm missing the ocean. The salt air. I'm missing living aboard our sailboat, waking up to the sounds of dolphins blowing right outside.
