So, I just watched a commercial for some weather announcer in the states. The commercial itself wasn’t too interesting, but they used “Hey Man Nice Shot” by Filter as the music. For those of you who don’t know (& didn’t feel the need to click the very informative Wikipedia link) – it’s a song about suicide. Why they felt it was a good song to announce a weather man, I’m not too sure.

In other news, I saw two very good movies in the last week. Yesterday I saw Speed Racer (again with the link). I’m giving that mofo a 10/10 – I can’t think of a single thing wrong with it. The Wachowski brothers did an absolutely fantastic job. The visuals were all awesome & appropriate & the acting wasn’t hacked. It did a really good job of being a live action cartoon.

I saw Iron Man last Sunday in Edmonton. Again, the visuals were well done – the CG was exceptional – looked really realistic. The acting was also really well done – Robert Downey Jr. really played Tony Stark to a ‘T’. 10/10 for that one too – there’s nothing I can think of that I didn’t like about it.
