okay, reverse order...

i looked at the movie spoiler (www.moviespoiler.com) for "about schmidt" and it made my eyes tear up. holy SHIT what a movie. i'm gonna buy the DVD when it comes out.

took a sick day today. got in at midnight, and i haven't been sleeping right lately, and i was a little jet lagged this morning. blech, so i'm still in tampa. gonna go see "phone booth" apparently.

TXK was okay. i took a zillion pictures. it's weird how cute colleen's family is. her mother and i figured out that every other one is crazy. the eldest, catherine, is a doll, and her kids rock, and it's all good. the next, christy, a little (a lot) crazy and irresponsible. the next, jim, is a pretty down to earth guy. smart, but non-ambitious. colleen, the next, well..... and then david, who was crazy into alcohol and being a delinquent, sobered up and found god. not just found him, but is prosetylzing on a regular basis, apparently. it has made him a much more pleasant guy.

colleen was perfect (except for sunday, which she apologized for). i spent too much money, but that's okay, the kids were able to swim in the pool of a hotel that i got a room in sunday night (but left at midnight, cause why the hell stay there when i coudl stay with the family and my kid?) i just did some work on the high-speed internet line.

about schmidt.....

omg....you really should watch the movie before purchasing it. I saw it in the theater which was filled with 60+ yr olds. While i was super interested in it from the trailer, the movie was...well, i almost left in the middle. matter of fact, the couple sitting next to me did walk out. The story is alright, but it is very depressing and very slow moving.

well. maybe that's just b/c i've only ended up there on accident, and the next day led us through arkansas for HOURS and into oklahoma (forgodsakes) solely to escape the dry counties of arkansas and get some goddamn beer. :)

(so now whenever i hear texarkana i have to yell "TEXARFUCKINGKANA!") end story.

yeah, i'm not very fond of it either....the interstate came in and the place kinda blew away...it's dying like crazy, but really it's just moving a few miles into TX.

and man do i hate TX and AR. pretty, sure. but everybody and everything is country-fried. the pictures speak for themselves, some.

about schmidt is one of those movies i respect more than like. great performances, great direction, excellent dialogue... all around a very good film, that i found boring and couldn't relate to.
