Wild Hogs (2007)
Finally got around to seeing this. 4 middle aged men decide to go on a cross country road trip on their "hogs". Along the way they run into a biker gang (and a gay motorcycle cop). I was hoping for a few laughs, but I think I only got 2 or 3. Even so, it wasn't all bad. Not as funny as I'd hoped, but still fairly entertaining.

The Simpsons Movie (2007)
I've stopped watching The Simpsons on TV long time ago, so I guess you can't really call me a fan of the show. But I thought I'd give the movie a try anyway. Glad I did. Not hilarious (not that The Simpsons often are), but a little funny here and there. I guess it's more of a family movie. Pretty good, though.

Thursday August 9th 2007 (Entry was updated on Thursday August 9th 2007)


So I went to Home Depot last night. Was looking for 3 things. A pressure washer on clearance (didn't expect to find this), a stainless steel metric bolt (50/50 chance of them having it) and a toilet seat (no problem).

They didn't have the pressure washer. No biggie. They didn't have the bolt.. oh well. I couldn't find the toilet seat (other than the display model), so I had the CS person look up the SKU to see if they had any in stock. She said they have 2, and that she was gonna call Todd to find it for me.

So I head over to the toilet seats again, and the apron named Todd meets me there. He starts pointing to a few different styles of toilet seats, saying these are the molded wood ones they have. This after he was told by the CS person to simply go find a box with the SKU that I gave her.

I tell Todd that they're pretty much all molded wood, as is pretty obvious by the tags on the display units. He's confused for a moment. So I tell him, while pointing to the display model, this is the seat I want. In this color. So he grabs a box from right behind the seat and tells me here, this is the one. I tell him no, that's not the one. I want it in "bone" color (like the display model I'd pointed to), not white. He's confused again. So I tell him, look, there's a color code on each box. The color you're holding is 000 (white). I want 016, bone. So he starts looking at the other boxes on the shelf. I tell him I've already looked at all the boxes that are in plain sight, and that none of them are the correct seat. He looks more anyway. I humor him.

So after a bit he decides, nope, they're all out. Gee, no kidding? I could have told him that too based on not finding it on the shelf. But the CS person said they had two, so I was kinda hoping he'd have a good look around (and maybe on top where they store the unopened boxes). But no. I guess he was a bit too Re-Todd-ed to find a toilet seat. Basically, he was no help at all. I'd already established that there weren't any on the shelf.. why else would I have the CS person check stock? Duh!

Reno 911: Miami (2007)
Almost forgot I watched this movie! It was funnier than expected. Looked dumb. Which I guess it was, but not too dumb. Just dumb enough to laugh at and still keep me interested. Besides, there were boobies in it!

What an awesome weekend!

Had some fun on Saturday jet skiing... Even got some footage of it: Video!

Had more fun Saturday night!

Overall a very good weekend. Just too bad it rained on the crack sealing I did on the driveway. Hopefully it'll be okay.

Die Hard 4 (2007)
Sometimes you wish things would just die easier. The DH series of movies is one of those things. Retire it already. This movie had basically everything I don't like about stupid movies. Hackers, for one. Can't stand any movie with "hackers" in it. It's always so incredibly fake.

Also, I could swear that they used a scene clip twice.. When he drives the semi and plows into a Mercedes. I'm pretty sure he plowed the same Mercedes twice. When then semi is almost rolling over and he's wrestling with the wheel to keep it from rolling, he's turning the wheel the wrong way. It would have certainly resulted in a rollover, but oh no, this is our hero we're talking about here... Bah!

Not to mention the futuristic fighter plane that gets a huge chunk of debris in its engine, but still manages to stay aloft for a long time, even after the pilot ejects?!?!?

The Lookout (2007)
A slightly challenged guy works nights at a bank cleaning. He gets involved with the wrong crowd and takes part in a robbery of the bank. But then the tables turn.. Pretty decent movie.

Disturbia (2007)
Kind of a guilty pleasure, almost. Movie feels like it's made for kids, but it's got adult content. Cute girl in it too!

Sex & Consequences (2006)
40-something married woman has affair with 18 y/o guy. Great sex and all that, but it has consequences that nobody really thought of.

Jet ski
I've already said I'm not going to modify my jet skis at all. But after seeing this video...



.. I'm starting to think it would be awesome with a 400hp, 2.5 liter 2 stroke V6 in a hull made for a 100hp 2-cylinder!! 86mph in that video. That's booking! Hmmm.. gotta think about this. ;oD

So I needed a spare part for a jet ski.. eBay here I come. I did a search on previously ended auctions to get an idea of what the market value was. Didn't seem to be a big seller at all. One went for $10, another didn't get any bids at all starting at $25.

Well, long story short, 3 auctions for the same type of part all ended within an hour of each other this weekend... First went for $102.50, second went for $68 (I had bid on this one) and third went for $31. Guess which one I got? The $31 one, of course. Even at $31 I felt I paid more than I should have based on previous auctions, but it was close enough that I didn't care. But $100+? Christ, you can buy brand new ones for $140!!

There's an eBay sucker born every minute, I guess.

Stalker

I guess K. or Kelly as her name is, has been telling people that I stalked her?!? WTF kind of crap is that? I haven't even been to Jackson since the last time I helped her with her kitchen. I even let her keep a tool I left at her place just so I wouldn't have to talk to her again. The only contact we've had since then was when she sent the message on myspace that I talked about in an earlier blog entry.

I'm starting to see a pattern.. She told me that one of her exes had "stalked" her too. I'm thinking it's all in her head.

If anyone is stalking anyone, it's her. After all, she's the one that still reads my blog. So Kelly, when you read this, get this straight. I'm over you. I was over you the weekend following our last night in your kitchen. That's why I didn't even bother calling you back. Don't flatter yourself by thinking I would even bother "stalking" you. I don't care what or who you do as long as it doesn't involve me.

I haven't been pissed off about the whole Kelly thing at all until now.. Telling people that I'm stalking you.. yeah, that pisses me off. I'm not gonna make a big deal out of it, though. You're not worth it. This is the first and last thing I'm gonna say about it.

Because I Said So (2007)
Another movie with Lauren Graham in it. Admittedly the only reason I watched it. A tale of a mom and her 3 daughters. All about love, dating and romance. Not the greatest of movies, but with Lauren in it, how bad can it be, right?

Also had a good song in it (see vid).


100 Girls (2000)
Fairly typical college type movie.. with a twist. A guy has sex (for the first time) in an elevator during a blackout. Problem is, when he wakes up the next morning, she's gone, and he never got to see who she was. So his mission is to find out which of the 100 girls in the girls' dorm was the one. Good for a few laughs.

It runs and floats!
Took the green jet ski out on the lake yesterday. Smoked like a chimney for the first few seconds, but then once the residual oil in the exhaust system was burned off the smoke dissipated. Had a blast! Jumped wakes, did spins and all that good stuff. Even had to abandon ship once when doing a spin, or the whole thing would have flipped over on top of me! Good times! Got a sunburn too. :o)

Can't wait to get the yellow one fixed now.. 110hp vs 80hp!

The iPhone is a piece of shit, and so is your face.

Or so says Maddox. I love this guy. Very funny. Been reading his stuff for a long time. Also have his book, The Alphabet of Manliness.

Evan Almighty (2007)

Saw this last night. I wasn't expecting much since I haven't really heard much about it (other than the fact the nobody saw it). I do like Steve Carell, though, so I was thinking it couldn't be all that bad. Molly Shannon and Lauren Graham are also in it, both of which I've liked in previous appearances.

You'd think that an agnostic like myself wouldn't appreciate a movie about God (or with God.. I guess it's not really about him (it? her?)). But you'd be wrong. I think this was a really good movie. Funny, sad and awesome. I think most of all I enjoyed Lauren Graham's performance. I've always thought she was cute ever since I first saw her on Gilmore Girls, but wow, she's stunning in this movie! What I'd give for a date with her!



Anyway.. good movie! Love Lauren!

Sweet Muse song..



That's not the actual music video, just some thing I found on YouTube. I guess watching some half naked chicks while listening to sweet Muse works out pretty nicely. :o)

Transformers (2007)
Disappointing. That's the only word needed to describe this movie. No wait, that's not fair.. Two words: Very Disappointing.

This movie wasn't at all true to the original concept and look/feel of the original Transformers (the ones I grew up with). Even just looking at it as a generic movie not based on the Transformers cartoons, it still failed to impress. I think there was only one impressive "scene" in the whole movie, and it was of course 100% CGI. Of course, it being a CGI thing makes it non-impressive. Still looked cool, though.

If you have a SeaDoo jet ski and need parts, the place to go is www.seadoosource.com. The guy has a good selection and is cheap! Also doesn't charge an arm and a leg for S&H.

One thing has got me puzzled. I see these people pulling around boats that are called "Bassmaster" or some version of Bass-something. What I don't get is, what makes the boat specifically attractive to bass? Do other fish swim away from it while bass just stare into the boat's dreamy eyes as if in a trance? Personally as long as it floats, I don't see how one boat makes fishing for bass any easier than the other.

The Hitchhiker (2007)
Started watching this.. Watched for about 20 mins then stopped it. What a horrible movie. The plot itself hadn't really started sucking all that bad yet, but the awful sound on the movie was just too much! Whoever was their sound editor should never work in sound again. A lot of the scenes had loud humming from nearby appliances.. So loud, in fact, that it overpowered the dialog!! Anyway, from what I read on IMdB I didn't miss out on anything worth watching. Had cute blonde in it, though. A couple of 'em, in fact.

Jet Skis
I felt that one broken jet ski wasn't enough, so I bought two more!







Got one (the green one) running already. Just needs a couple parts for it to be ready for the water. Yellow one looks to be needing a starter. Haven't really looked too hard at it yet. 4-wheeler makes moving them around easy. :o) Seats are off in the pictures btw, 'cause I just came back from hosing down the skis at the car wash. Didn't need seats for that!
