Random Thursday

It’s difficult to explain the awesomeness of this clip.  To use a basketball metaphor, this is equivalent to the #13 seed beating the #4 seed on a last second three pointer.  This is Clint Dempsey, back from a knee injury, entering the game as a late sub with a 4-4 aggregate score…

That’s what I’m talking about.

In other news, the Beemsville Final Four consists of:  Ohio State, Kansas State, Kentucky, and Villanova.  Much as I dislike Calipari, I have the Wildcats over the Buckeyes in the final.

A couple of sci-fi/fantasy themed movies on the near horizon that have caught our interest:

  • Repo Men stars Jude Law and Forrest Whitaker in a cyber-punkish near future thriller.  They harvest organs.  Sounds cool.  Does it pay homage in any way to Repo Man?
  • Clash of the Titans was one of my favorite movies as a kid and helped spur an early interest in mythology and folklore.  Will this CGI-fest trample my old memories or provide a cool Olympian escape?
  • How to Train Your Dragon has pixar-style Vikings and Dragons with the classic ‘quest by a misfit’ plotline.  The kids are excited, and we’re going to try to use our re-cycled 3-D glasses.
