Here’s something useless to pass time at work (for Matt & Kenton anyway). Design yourself in lego:
I’m sure it started off small, like “Hey, we could throw a couch in the gym and watch a movie” and then grew to “Why not put a few couches in there” and somehow you end up with this:
A literal drive-in movie in the church gym. The kids seemed to have a lot of fun with it which is what really matters. The movie they watched was Extreme Days, a Christian made movie that’s actually pretty funny and entertaining in spite of the predictable story and sappy romantic sub-plot. Worth a rental if you’re just looking for a goofy movie.
So for all of you keeping score at home (and I know that there’s actually none of you.. because nobody visits this site!), here’s how our basement is coming along:
Now we just have to paint the walls and put something on the floors. Oh, and put in the kicking surround sound theatre system so we can keep up with cam. what’s that cam, you don’t like that idea?
I don’t think of myself as being all that sneaky, but these internet quizzes never lie, do they?
Check out Mark’s new song on our mp3.com site. It’s called Mennonite Women (The Sequel). We threw in some funky beats and old-sk00l samples, natch.
u2log.com has info on the second ‘Best Of’ from U2 that should be out Nov. 11th. It’ll probably highlight the ’90’s (Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Passengers?, Pop) as well as have a b-sides collection. It’s funny, but even though I’ve already got all these cd’s and most of the b-sides, I’m still really looking forward to this release. (sue is no doubt rolling her eyes at this!) The 90s are the period that I really got into U2 and it’ll be interesting to see if they re-do a track like they did for the previous Best Of with Sweetest Thing or just put a couple new tunes on it to entice people to buy it.
To keep the u2 theme going, i don’t know if I ever posted these pictures here – but here’s pics from the u2 cover night i did with some friends back a couple months.
Uh oh… looks like Sue’s favorite tv and home decor personality is getting investigated for possible insider trading. Yes, Martha Stewart is having troubles with her billions and billions of dollars of Martha Stewart stock. It’s a good thing.
In ‘I think you’ve got late charges’ news, someone returned a book a library in Halifax 74 years late. Not only that, but it was actually due at a library in Michigan.
And lastely, I’ll leave you for your weekend to mull this one over: A BC speed skater was tackled by a naked man during a practice one night. Luckily the skater was able to identify the man as a ‘white male.’
