In Search of Mr. Henry

RssBandit is becoming very useable thanks to Dare and buddies.  However, he still won't add a retro PointCast skin for me, which really seems like a long term adoption blocker.

Incidentally, I now have a GotDotNet blog for work related topics.  Having two blogs is kind of like having two home computers.  Logically, it is just one more - but conceptually it is a whole new world.  I have also made another big change in my life recently going from a wallet to a money clip, but that is another story for another time.

I will have to ask Bari about the Turkish version of this story.

Kudos to Dare for becoming the most popular Obasanjo in the world, at least according to Google.  This is interesting, because his father is THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA.

Hence, I have decided to completely change my opinion of Bayesian logic.  The future is web page hit statistics… Big Brother is the popular majority of web users.

 

I saw Old School a couple of weeks ago.  Four stars in my opinion.  Every post – college male who has done any “selling out” needs to watch this movie.  It’s some good therapy.

 

A Mightly Wind comes out next week in limited release.  Almost the entire cast from "Best in Show" is back.  It will be interesting to see if this movie is as good as Christopher Guest’s other movies.

 

On a closing note – somewhere I missed that one of the goals of the war against Iraq was to knock down every statue and monument in the country.   Why didn't we say that in the beginning?  Perhaps the entire war could have been avoided if Saddam had agreed to remove all of all public images of himself.

Dare pointed out I haven't posted in a while - which was a valid point.  However, I don't really have anything coherent to say, so some eclectic ramblings with have to suffice:

1)  Pacific Northwest winters suck.  I am basically a native, and have always prided myself in dealing with them.  But after 30 years, I am giving up.  I hate the weather in Seattle from November through March.

2)  Went to the Seattle SuperSonic game against the Sacramento Kings with Bertan, Bruno, and Todd.  We were basically there to see Turkish super star Hedo Turkoglu who scored 22 points and had a good game.  Bari says he would have had a better game, but that the Yugoslavian players were not passing him the ball.  Interesting theory.

3)  Ran across an interesting review of House Party 3 on IMDB . Did anyone know there is actually an House Party 4?

Date: 14 April 1999
Summary: Lousy movie; a let down from start to finish.

This movie was a real let down. House Party #1 and #2 were so funny and entertaining. And why isn't Martin Lawrence in this one? The only characters that returned from the first two House Party movies are Kid, Play and Cindy. Also, this film doesn't pick up where the second movie left off. It doesn't show how Kid and Cindy break up, or where Kid meets his new girl friend. It doesn't even tell you where Play's new car came from! This movie didn't have the magic that made the first two films so great. I didn't like this film at all. It was lousy, boring and a big disappointment. It didn't even seem like one of the House Parties. I give this movie an extremely rare 1 out of 10. I've only seen it once and I wouldn't watch it again if you paid me.

4) Old School is out.  Looks like an instant classic, and Owen Wilson isn't even in it.

5)  RSSBandit rocks.  'Nough said.

Shanghai Knights came out last Friday... and became an "instant classic".  A little background here:  a few months ago I was heard saying that "All Owen Wilson movies are classics.".   Now although I probably had a very good reason to say so at the time (At the time, I had forgot Owen was in Armageddon), I've painted myself into a virtual corner.  That seems to be a problem in general with irrational declarations.

Speaking of Owen Wilson, a few people have asked me what the title of my web log is all about.  Mr. Henry is a character played by James Caan in the movie Bottle Rocket starring Owen and Luke Wilson, and written by Owen and Wes Anderson.  If you haven't seen the movie, it's a classic - well at least the first 45 minutes and the last 1/2 hour.  Feel free to fast forward throught the entire motel part.

On a final note, since my blog is now being monitored by microsoft-watch.com , I wanted to give a shout out to the Fifth Buket Crew... "On the run from Johnny Law... ain't no trip to Cleveland." !!!
