Pucks and Wii

I’ve joined a fantasy hockey league up on Yahoo! with a bunch of people I know from work. It’s fun. I like it. I will do it again next year. I enjoy watching the games (the Lightning at least), but it adds a little more now because I have players on my fantasy team from all over the real league, and I think I’ll get to a point real soon where I’ll watch those teams play on TV as well. At least once in a while. Speaking of which, the Lightning play tonight. Excellent.

I’m currently researching some ideas for some short films. I may start pre-production as early as November 1st. Keep watching the Suncoast Studios site for more info.

I tried to get a preorder in on a Nintendo Wii. I called ten different EB Games stores throughout Sarasota, Bradenton, Tampa, St. Pete, and Mt. Myers around 10:30am today. All preorders were filled except one store in northern Ft. Myers. They still had three left. I was psyched! I asked the guy if I could get one and he said, and I quote, “Sure, if you can make it down to the store.” Shit! I totally forgot about that snag. If I knew I could drive an hour and a half down to Ft. Myers and they’d still have one preorder available, I would’ve done it in a heart beat. I just couldn’t justify leaving work for three hours (round trip, ya know) and then have a high probability of coming back empty handed. My boss would have been cool with it if I actually gotten a Wii (he’s a gadget freak too). Oh well. I guess I’ll just wait until they start taking pre-orders on the EB Games website.

I watched The Score last night on DVD. A friend of mine from work lent it to me. It’s a great story. I think I’ve realized that I really enjoy movies where I root for the bad guy: The Thomas Crown Affair, Pulp Fiction, The Score, etc. I’m not sure why, but I think it has to do with the fact that you’re doing something you shouldn’t be doing (rooting for the guy who’s hurting everyone), which is an interesting way to get someone (like me) feel more like they’re part of the movie, suspending their disbelief more.

I will play a lot of Lego Star Wars this weekend, and hopefully finish it.

Sick Thought of the Day: Cough. Cough. CoughFartShit.
