"Vacation - all I ever wanted"

Reporting from the parents' crib...

This short vacation from school, work, and Boston winter has proven to be a relaxing one, save a trip to the dentist and Orlando traffic. There is very little to post about currently, though I do have some shhh cooking that will hopefully entertain. Years From Now and Blacklisted on Friday, then Make Or Break with Barriers Now Bridges on Sunday. A time to mosh...

One thing I do, however, have to post is a spectacular movie review by my close friend and fellow Years From Now Pit Crew member, John Park.

"Friends, tonight i come to you to talk about something serious. A huge problem i have with the way things are going lately, what is it I'm talking about? The way most of you probably haven't seen Norbit yet of course.

I'm going to ask a question now, a pretty general question but I want you all to think long and hard about your answers, ok? Ok here goes...

Do you love laughing?

If you answered "no" then you are a piece of shit and i don't really care what you think, go fuck yourself seriously.

Now, if you answered "YES" then Norbit is the feel good, side splitting all out laugh riot of the year, decade, century, forever. Look out Criterion collection, you've got another title coming your way! Seriously, this film is on the same level as "Casablanca", "Gone With The Wind", or even "In The Army Now"

Anyways, Eddie Murphy has really outdone himself this time, playing not one, or two but three characters, seriously how does this guy do it??? One of them is even an old asian man!! i tell you, i tried to keep the LOL'z from coming but it was fucking impossible.

Norbit's wife, Rasputia is the kind of lady any guy would want, that Norbit really is one lucky son of a gun, from the way she constantly accuses him of "adjusting her seat" to her he-freakin-larious catch phrase "howYOUdoin?" which was always perfectly timed to send me into a spiral of uncontrollable laughter, at one point i think i shat myself in the theater but didn't dare get up and miss a second of this comic gold.

Really what can i say about this movie that hasn't already been said? Genius, Amazing, Brilliant, 15 stars, 11 thumbs up, you get it, this movie will forever change cinema, forever. All in all what I'm saying is, go see this movie, do yourself a favor, it'll change your perspective on everything, and you'll forever be a better person."

Stay tuned in,

72 Hours Down the Drain

2 days with an old friend at his new spot...

...then one night seeing the band that started it all for me.

Headcolds and homework are nothing anymore.
