QOTD

When despair for the world grows in me
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests
In his beauty on the water
And the great heron feeds
I come into the peace of wild things
Who do not tax their lives with forethough of grief
I come into the presence of still water
And feel above me the day-blind stars
Waiting with their light
And for a time I rest in the peace of the world
And am free

William Blake

Ah, the Smell of Napalm in the Morning

I may be a bit light on blog entries for the next day or so. I went to grab a pot lid that had been sitting too close to the stove flame. It was hot. Really hot. Now I’ve got a nice red line of welts on my left hand running diagonally across the first three fingers. [best E.T voice] Ouuuch. Typing may be a little unpleasant for a while. Could’ve been worse.

Whee!!

According to quizilla, Colorado is my state.
Well duh.
And yes, those are the Maroon Bells. And no, I haven’t climbed them. Yet.
colorado
Colorado is your state. If you don’t already live
there, you should. Lots of tourists…just
ignore them. If you can take the cold winters,
you’ll be just fine there.

Erin and I just finished watching Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl on DVD (bought it during opening week). Great film and some fantastic extras on the second DVD. I think the advent of expected extras on DVD releases has been a great thing for the industry for a few reasons:

1. shows people behind the scenes and inspires people to get into the industry
2. demystifies the moviemaking process
3. pushes competitors to higher levels of accuracy and detail (Jack Sparrow’s pistol is an authentic model that was made in the 1700’s)

I love the extra footage and find myself often thinking “hey, I could do that!”. Very cool.
If you haven’t seen the movie, give it a go. Lots of fun.
