This guy was great. Well done visuals, man.

Went and saw Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest last night. Kass called and swindled me into it. The lure of summer blockbusters is just irresistable at times. Goes back to waiting in line for E.T. in my formative years, etc.

Speaking of, my Unca Mike always tells a funny little account about “taking me to see E.T.” years ago. He was proud of his Uncle duties, taking his nephew to see E.T. for the first time and stuff. Then, so the tale goes, while he was basking in this glow, I looked up and said, “This is my 8th time, Unca Mike.” Or something like that. Unca Mike is good stuff. I was a little rugrat. Still am.

Anyway, I enjoyed the pirate show for the most part. Great costumes, great language, special effects, hooks, etc. Everyone likes pirates, right? Right. The painfully intertwined love story was weak and forced, but, that’s a necessary part of the “dumbest buy the mostest” summer formula. Ho-hum.

For the record, Matt “Energy Bar” Kass snored through the whole picture show. Ha.

Cris Dabica, Down Some Country Road, Vermont, was over yesterday for a meeting of the minds. Much was discussed. Very few action sport industry rapscallions escaped our vicious sentiments.

I mow a yard approximately 50 by 50 feet. He mows two acres. Go figure, you dicks.

that movie was fun in stretches, but jesus christ, did it really need to be two and a half hours long?

Three hours of King Kong is bad enough, two and half of Orlando Bloom is too much. Of course, every moderately successful genre movie now has to be spun into some bloated, meandering trilogy.
