Anyone know what's going on at Dobson and Baseline right now?
I saw at least 17 vehicles go by...firetrucks, ambulances, police cars, and one that looked very military/bomb squad-like. Two helicopters. Looks huge.
It's 3 AM. I cannot believe I used to wake up this early to go to WORK. I must have been crazy.
Speaking of crazy....The Dark Knight.
I, of course, must begin by speaking of the dearly departed Heath Ledger, who as you all know, was a permanent filling on my Top 5.
I knew he'd be good. I read the reviews. The Oscar predictions. Saw the previews.
I had no idea. None. No one will have any idea until they see it. I have never seen such a transformation. One of the best villains of all time, seriously. Not because he's gone, but because he was an amazing actor. He turned The Joker from Jack Nicholson's creey darkness into a real, true madman. It was the performance of a lifetime, literally. They will never be able to find someone to replace him. Good luck.
The movie flew by, for those worried about the time (2 1/2 hours...2.50 with previews and all). Christian Bale, another permanent spot in my Top 5, is so freakin hot I can't stand it. He's the perfect Batman and the perfect Bruce Wayne, and no actor has ever been able to accomplish that.
Speaking of, THEY SHOWED THE PREVIEW FOR TERMINATOR! It was very short, as they're filming now, and it's not out until Summer '09, but the reaction was awesome. I squealed. So didn't expect that, wow.
Anyway, that's all I will say as I don't want to give anything away, but now I'm going to go back to the archives and read about the LAST movie I posted about as excitedly as I am right now...it was Batman Begins. This franchise...I tell ya...wow. Brilliant.
The theatre I went to was completely sold out, EIGHT theatres worth, and people were there since like noon.
Who else saw it?
(this icon has been around since the first one, just don't have very many chances to use it)
Heath Ledger died.
I can't believe it. That's three guys I used to have on my walls that have passed.
He was only 28! Batman is coming out!
WHAT THE FUCK???
Today I am even sicker than I was before. No idea why. We have a huge meeting today, about the look of the Peak and getting new tents and inflatables and things, and I'm totally going home after that. Tomorrow, I have a wedding to attend and then Sunday I will try..TRY..to rest long enough to get better. At this point, I'll probably take Monday off as well, which is ok because I'll be working all next weekend.
It's weird how much you crave having pets around when you're sick. I sooo want my kitties to be here.
