Go see...

...Pan's Labyrinth if you're into surreal modern (Spanish Civil War era) fairy tales.

Yet another great offering from Guillermo Del Toro.

Fair Warnings:

1) To quote Brandon, who saw it with me tonight: "Man, that was brutal." He's not kidding, people. The violence and such isn't sensationalized or gratuitous, but it is harsh in places.

2) For those among you accustomed to Latin-American-accented Spanish, hearing the Castillan accent is just all wrong. I guess that's what I get for all those years I've spent in Texas... 🙂


Water Pong = deadly

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not making fun of the California woman who died while trying to win a water-drinking contest.  (as an aside, how sucky is that whole situation, especially since people told the DJs that it wasn't safe and they were ignored?)  But that said, banning water pong is a little extreme - or is it just me?

Yes I know, good intentions, blah blah, litigation, blah blah... but please, use some common sense?  The article makes it sound like it's a good excuse  to ban an undesired activity - water damage, noise in the study space, etc - if that's the case then own up and admit it.


Facebook "Gifts"

Actually, I have two issues with facebook at the moment.

First, my current crap picture has gotten so many comments that I feel I can't replace it for a little while. It's a shame because I have other new and insane pictures.

Second, there's a thing to give a facebook gift now. Really, it just lets you put an icon on someone else's page. Among the people on my friends list, the naked troll seems really popular.

Of course, there's also a box with a hole in it. That's the obvious choice to give to just about anyone. However, since I only have one box with a hole to give, who do I give it to? It seems wrong to give it to just about any girl (Maybe Andrea though?). Maybe one of you folks should have it. So, Chris, John, Michael, Nick or whoever, any of you want a box with a hole?
