a little piece of my childhood died today…damn you SkyTV…

It used to be that if someone mentioned Karate kid II I would immediately remember the time on July 4th (1987?) when it was showing at the Capitol  theatre for free…I remember there was a huge line around the block for a noontime showing. I was there with my cousin. It’s one of those immediate and vivid memories from ones youth…
Well, thanks to Staycation 2011 and Sky -if someone mentions Karate Kid II I will from now on think of that chunk of dog shit on the sidewalk that I have to avoid everyday when I’m walking to the coffee shop for my morning cappuccino…

It was kind of a crap movie! Sometimes one should not revisit their childhood.

Benjamin, we’re meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?

Just watched “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”…actually I should say I just finished watching it…turns out it was a 2 day project (the intermission was 16 hours or so). Sometimes it’s difficult to judge a movie watched over multiple sessions, but I quite liked it. Maybe if I had to watch it in one sitting I would have gotten bored, but I’d say it’s a keeper. I’m gonna give it a 10 out of 12 (if you don’t understand the rating system you haven’t been paying attention or reading for months on end). In one sitting I’m sure the rating would change, but oh well. It is what it is and it’s sunday.

I liked this quote:
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

I was having a conversation with a colleague the other day about Brad Pitt. It’s easy to think of him a gossip type figure (not the colleague…the other one), but he is always really good (not the colleague). Which is to say I have a natural tendency to dislike his ilk (gossip queens…), but he always disproves or overcomes my prejudice against him (what road have I wrought?). I guess that makes me a fan (this isn’t going to make any sense at all). I watched “Spy Games” the other day, as well as rewatching “Burn After Reading” and now BenButt (I’m a big fan of BenButt…did you hear it got 10 out of 12). He’s aw’ight.
(I’ve had multiple conversations with that colleague and I have no idea what his name is…cool guy tho).
