The vast majority of movies made these days are complete crap.

That reminds me of this news article:

Poor Films Explains Box Office Slump - Survey

Wow, seriously!? Thanks, survey people!

Seriously, though, with movies like "Stealth," "The Cave," and "Remake of TV Show Part 846," how could we think any differently? This movie season has had a few good flicks, but a whole lot of stinkers.

I agree wholeheartedly. I don't know where they get the idea that you can take a t.v. show and expect to turn it into a good movie. Even a lot of the movie remakes aren't that good.

I will admit there are a few exceptions. Batman (not "too" bad but still a bit cheesy), Mission Impossible (Excellent, I thought) and then there was...Hmm, nope not that one. How about.......no that stunk too. Darn, now I'm out of ideas.

I think the worst one so far has to be "The Dukes Of Hazzard". In my opinion, they murdered that. And Jessica Simpsons version of "These Boots Are Made For Walking" , I am too polite to say here of what I think she looked and acted like nevermind the fact you couldn't tell if she was singing or was in the middle of something with her hubby.

All the paperwork for my daughter's trip to Japan is still not done, and they are trying to push up when she needs to arrive :( Too much added stress.

I think most of the mainstream movies are crap as is most mainstream music. But dig deeper, more likely on DVD than cinema and you will still find gems. Cinema will only show big budget as most cinemas are now owned by the film companies.

This woman and I were walking towards each other in Starbucks this morning and we did that jog back and forth thing that you do when you're in each other's way. Finally, I stepped to the side so she could pass, but apparently I stepped to the WRONG side because she had to walk a step or two out of her way to get where she wanted to go. You should have seen the look she gave me. Like I'd just clubbed her puppy to death or something! I have never seen such a nasty, horrified, mean look on a person in my life! I'm sure she's going around the rest of the day telling people what a horrible person I am. I have no idea what I did to offend her so much other than perhaps not be psychic....

Totally agree! I have a lot of problems finding movies made in the past ten years or so that I enjoy.

A little background on my job:

I work in the print center at my school. Part of my job is to make copies. Katharina, makin' copies...

Anyway. Today is the day that people graduating this term get all their paperwork, pay their bills, and basically get their stuff in order before they leave the school.

So.

This has been scheduled since before the term started. Do the people in the various departments get their work done ahead of time so I can make copies? Of COURSE not! That'd be too much like right!

So, now, I'm basically being held hostage in the Print Center, making copies of a bunch of stuff that could have been done, say, last week or so. Send help or lunch this way, please and thank you.

Polish! That's neat, Sally... my background is Polish, but unfortunately all I know is a few swear words my friend taught me.

My MI for today: It's Alberta's Centennial birthday tomorrow, but the province is too wrapped up in making money to give people a single day off to celebrate. We have festivals and celebrations going on in the city all day tomorrow, but everyone will be stuck in their offices all day instead of being able to attend, or even spend the time with their family. Including me, they choose tomorrow of all days to start school again for us.

My friend's husband went back to Iraq today. She won't see him again until January.

Ah yes, thanks MT! Me too. I don't have a whole lot of understanding and patience for people who treat me like dirt. Maybe that makes me a mean/angry person, but I'm ok with that. I treat everybody well first and if they continue to treat me well, I continue to treat them well, but if they start treating me like crap, screw it, I don't have time to stress over people like that.

I bought lunches for today and tomorrow at the grocery store last night, but then left them at home, so I still have to go out and buy something expensive downtown anyway.

I vaguely know somebody who just had triplets and named them Kylie, Karly and Kayla. All cute names, but TOGETHER? That sucks. Do you think any of them will ever be called by the correct name by anybody the entire time they're growing up? I doubt it.

Oh boy... I hope they're not identical triplets!
