First of all, I hate it when people say 24/7/365, let me explain why: The first number (24) is the number of hours in a day. The second number (7) is the number of days in a week. The third number (365) is number of days in a year but hold on, we already covered days with 7. The correct continuation of the numeral phrase would be 4 or 5 or 6 as in 4 or 5 or 6 weeks a month, but I get why they wouldn't want to say 24/7/5 or 6, it would be silly and confusing. We could almost just round to 5 weeks a month as pretty standard. However, I propose that we say 24/7/12, as in 12 months a year. That way we're saying 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months a year. At least then we're keeping it fresh and not talking about days twice.
So if you ever say anything about 24/7/ etc, which you shouldn't anyway because it's stupid, say 24/7/12 or 24/7/5/12/10/10/100/infinity and we'll have a chuckle.
Also, this year is a leap year.
But anyway I leave for LA on the 8th, here's me packing with Ash:
cute. I'm sure I'm going to need those red Aeropostale swim shorts for all the Blood Pool Parties I'm invited to.
I am going to try and watch 366 movies this year. So far it's January 2nd and I've watched 3 so I'm well on my way. I'm keeping a list that I'll post on January 1st 2009 so if you never read this blog again, at least read that one. I might even put them in order of how I liked them!!! How exciting would that be. I wish that some of my readers/friends would do this with me. If so we could talk about it and compare notes and be nerds about it. As always you can message me on this blog or at PeterLHarmon at gmail.com
DVD pick of the day: Shooter. A lot of people were telling me I should see it so I did. I don't usually go for that type of movie but it was really good, not too complicated with all the government inner workings and top secrecy or whatever for the layman (aka me), and just plain exciting. Plus Mark Wahlberg is an awesome actor. He was my favorite part of The Departed and that's a feat. I don't want to ruin one of his upcoming roles, in case anyone cares about it, but check who he is playing in 2009 in this movie. http://imdb.com/title/tt0380510/ I don't know how I feel about it but I'm excited nonetheless.
I also saw Wayne's World for the first time ever today. It was super-90s. Kind of funny, the character of Wayne reminds me too much of Austin Powers mixed with Ted Logan from Bill and Ted. There were a lot of quotable quotes that I've heard before too many times.
Does anyone know where I could see Southland Tales? I don't want to have to wait for the DVD. I'm going to New York this weekend, maybe it's playing there. Or of course when I live in LA it might be playing.
I haven't been signing off of these blogs, like I haven't been saying "good night and have a pleasant tomorrow" or anything so I might just use a tagline or a quote from a movie I mention in the blog as the sign off. That could be a fun game for all of us. The first one might be really easy.
Oh well "have a nice apocalypse."
* Editors Note: lol at the blog formatting cutting off Ash in the picture, maybe once there are more postings it will show the entire picture, but she is in it and she did help me a lot.
