bandits & barbarians

lately, we’ve been occupying our time with 2 things (apart from the normal tv and eating and, you know, work and shit) – playing dr. mario on the nintendo entertainment system and watching arnold schwarzenegger movies on wednesday nights:

  • week 1 – total recall and twins.  people were losing their shit to both of these movies.  they’re both basically laugh factories.
  • week 2 – nobody came over but osiris watched running man while i went to a rock and roll show.  i caught up over the weekend and watched it.  a quote to sum it up? “i live to see you eat that contract, but i hope you leave enough room for my fist, because i’m going to ram it into your stomach and break your goddamn spine!”
  • week 3 (today) – conan the destroyer, which i’m blaspheming by blogging instead of paying attention to it, and terminator 2, a classic by anyone’s standards.
  • bonus – last night, we watched hercules in new york, one of arnold’s earlier and more genius works.  a movie so good that the youtube description of the clip i just linked is “I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves movies made by people who should be cleaning windshields or mopping a floor.” jealous?

also, we’ve been seeing summer blockbusters in the theater.  this weekend we saw journey to the centre of the earth 3d with mattie mark and got gotten pretty badly by some huge piranhas flying at our faces and the most horrible acting i’ve seen in a long time (i would’ve said ever, but we just watched hercules in new york).  we got surcharged 2 dollars for the 3d glasses so we all held on to them so we can see real life in 3d.

i decided that i also didn’t want to continue the chubbing-up process i’ve started (aided in large part by the sheer number of movies we’ve been watching), so i went for a jog today.  i intend to continue to jog until i can comfortably jog for the duration of “babe, i’m on fire” which is about the least any reasonable person six days shy of 25 should expect to be able to do.

    another gem from running man (from a creepy chick in a hallway talking to another chick): “you’re lucky he didn’t kill you, too. or rape you, then kill you. or kill you, then rape you.”

    Is real life better in 3d? Or is it a let-down like the new colors/flavors of Mt. Dew?
