Cinemetropolis by Blue Scholars

Cinemetropolis by Blue Scholars Remember when I posted a video by these guys? I wanted to title this post “what I’m listening to” but I should just write “what I want to listen to.” Because I’m still unemployed, I’ll have to listen online for now.

Sneak Peek: The Forbidden Kingdom

Just got back from a sneak preview of The Forbidden Kingdom that opens this Friday, along with Expelled. Don’t worry, no spoilers here because I don’t really like to write.

Bonds will be missed. I was just…missing.

Official Seal Generator

It's only Monday, which means we've got a lot of time to waste before it's Friday. Ha! You can make your own fake official seal (is that an oxymoron or what?) with the Official Seal Generator.  You can choose your text, graphic, and colors.  Pointless, but somewhat fun.
