Top 5 Christmas Movies

So in light of the holiday season, here are, what I think are the best Christmas movies of all time.

1) - A Christmas Story - If you don't agree with this then there is something wrong with you. There are too many things to reference that make this movie the best for Christmas.

2) - The Santa Clause - My Dad took me to go see this in the theater when it came out. I was 10. And I still watch it every year. Good laughs, a good story and just a great movie for Christmas.

3) - Elf - Will Ferrell is great in this one. A really funny movie with not really any raunchy humor. A great movie even when you don't watch it around Christmas. But, try to save it for the holiday's because it makes it that much better.

4) - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - So many things go wrong around the holidays. Money, work, family, decorations, accidents and this movie has them all. Chevy Chase is perfect in this movie and it is hilarious.

5) - Scrooged (A Christmas Carol) - So A Christmas Carol has been remade a bunch of different times. So it makes the list at #5 and the one I chose is Scrooged. Bill Murray puts a great spin on the Ebenezer Scrooge role and the movie is really funny with a modern day appeal. Great movie for Christmas.

Honorable Mentions - A Nightmare Before Christmas - It's a Wonderful Life - How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the original version) - Love Actually - Home Alone

So there's my list and it's always subject to change. Let me know if I forget any good honorable mentions. MERRY CHRISTMAS...yes indeed.

Top 5 Animated Movies

I love animated movies and I don't think they are just for kids. So here's the Top 5 list of what I think are the best animated movies of all time. Disney/Pixar has a majority of the list. And I have yet to see Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon so the list can change.

1) - Up - This is the only animated movie that actually made me cry. The story is original and the animation is wonderful. The movie has comedy, action, suspense, and might tear you up. I love this movie.

2) - Kung Fu Panda - I watch this movie all the time. It's really funny and has some fun Kung Fu scenes. I can't wait for the second one.

3) - Toy Story - The original computer animated movie has to be on the list. Great movie. The second one is also fantastic. I can't wait to see the 3rd one.

4) - Finding Nemo - I can also watch this movie over and over again. The images are great and it has a great story. Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) has to be one of the funniest characters ever.

5) - Wall-E - The 1st half of the movie has no talking. It keeps you interested without having any dialogue for 30 to 40 minutes. It's also a great look at how lazy the world is. It's also really funny. I love this movie.

Honorable mentions - (There's a lot) Ratatouille - Cars - Monsters Inc. - Shrek - Surf's Up - A Bug's Life - Over the Hedge - Lion King - Aladdin - Meet the Robinson's

In a thought process while reading a friend's latest blog entry, I am reminded that opportunities will always present themselves. There is an expression...."According to Plan".... and life never goes according to plan. Letting go and trying to remember that God is in charge. This allows us to surrender ourselves and experience everything. The good and the bad. But when things go bad (and they will) how do we get through it without getting mad at who's in charge.

For this, there is no answer, just ideas. One idea is that from the movie "Evan Almighty". That life is basically just a series of opportunities. If you pray for courage, does God give you courage or opportunities to be courageous? If you pray for strength, does God give you strength or opportunities to be strong? If you pray for things to be less hectic, does God give relaxation or an opportunity to be patient? If you pray to be less angry about life, does God make you calm or give you an opportunity to be peaceful? And that's the beauty of it. We get to choose. We have the choice to jump at any opportunity that comes our way. That's the plan. (Yup Dop PC)

Top 5 Movies That Are Better The Second Time You Watch Them

Sometimes when you watch movies, they aren't what you expected. Mostly this applies with comedies but then you watch it again and its better than the first viewing. So here's a tentative list of what I think are the Top 5 movies that are better the second time you watch it. Remember that this is a tentative list so it may keep updating.

1) - Anchorman - I saw this movie in theaters when it came out, and didn't laugh hardly at all. But then of course after viewing it again. It is of course one of the funniest movies ever. "I'm in a glass case of emotion." "I would like to send you and invitation to the pants party" "I don't know what we're yelling about" "When are we on? 3? 3 minutes?....we're on right now?....I don't believe you" "Loud noises"

2) - Funny People - So this movie wasn't as funny as everyone thought it would be. With a movie called Funny People written by Judd Apatow starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen would be hysterically funny. But its more serious actually. But it's a really good movie that people should give a second chance.

3) - Couples Retreat - Thought this one was going to be a lot funnier when I saw it. Left the theater a little dissatisfied. But then I bought it (cause that's what I do ) and its definitely better the second time. Good good stuff.

4) - Baby Mama - Tina Fey, Amy Poehler....nuff said, watch it again.

5) - I Love You, Man - I will admit, that it wasn't as funny as I wanted it to be the first time. But sure enough, the second time you watch it, hilarious! Jason Segal and Paul Rudd are hysterical.

Honorable Mention - Dan in Real Life, The Prestige, Yes Man, Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs

So there's my list and it's subject to change. Yes indeed...

Solsbury Hill

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing Stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
(I) Just had to trust imagination
My heart going BOOM BOOM BOOM
"Son," he said, "Grab your things I've come to take you home

To keepin' silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho' my life was in a rut
Til I thought of what I'd say
And which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going BOOM BOOM BOOM
"Hey" he said, "Grab your things I've come to take you home

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going BOOM BOOM BOOM
"Hey" I said, "You can keep my things they've come to take me home."

"Solsbury Hill" - Peter Gabriel

True Blood

So the same guy who let me borrow Sons of Anarchy, also let me borrow True Blood. I never got into it because I don't have HBO and so I never started watching it. But I watched it, and yet another show that I got hooked on. (thanks Jesse)

I think this show is like Twilight only with cursing, drugs, more violence and a lot of sex. Its one of those shows that after the first couple of episodes, you get hooked. What I especially like about this show is that it changes the rules about vampires a little bit. Vampires can see their own reflection and they have no weakness to crosses or garlic. But the biggest change is that the entire world is aware that vampires exist. They came out of the casket so to speak. Vampires coexist with humans. They are given rights and are supposed to be treated as equals. That what makes this show unique. Every single vampire movie has always made it so vampires exist but the world has no knowledge of it. Only a select few, and they are the ones who explain the rules to the audience. In the case, its comes from the vampires. Its a real interesting take on the vampire genre. And I like the fact that takes place in Louisiana.

The show follows Sookie played by Anna Paquin. A bar maid who falls in love with vampire Bill played Stephen Moyer. Sookie is special because she can hear people's thoughts. There are also shape shifters, werewolves, and some other cool stuff.

There is a lot too it than that but you have to start watching to get all the details. Definitely recommend watching this show. Yes indeed.

When I die I.....

My wife and I were talking things that we would like to have happen after we die. Here is a list of things that I came up with.
  • I would like to be cremated.

  • Have my ashes scattered over Dave Matthews grave site. (just kidding)

  • Be made into Keith cookies or Keith brownies but don't tell people until after they ate some.

  • Have my ashes put into little baggies and handed out to people that show up. Just to gross people out.

  • Be buried in a random family members backyard but only Jess knows who.

  • Have a treasure map to my ashes.

  • Have my eulogy be every blog entry up to my death and everyone has to sit through the reading of each one. (to those who don't read my blog and I ask them to!)

  • Have beer, chicken wings and pizza at my funeral. Because who wouldn't want some wings at a funeral....cmon.

  • Make sure someone has a cigarette ready for Jess.

  • Have a viewing of my Top 5 favorite movies, whatever they may be at the time.

  • Have Dave Matthews Band music playing in the background.

  • Have trampolines.

  • At the funeral, have fake ashes in an urn and have it spill out on somebody as a joke.

  • Be smoked by my wife. (ha ha, this one would be funny)

  • Have somebody punch the surgeon who did my first 2 surgeries that didn't work.

  • If I'm not cremated, have somebody reenact Weekend at Bernie's.

  • At the funeral, have a murder mystery play/dinner.

  • Have someone read a letter from me describing what heaven is like.

  • Will still be in love with Jess.

So that's all I have for now. I'm sure I'll think of more later. I don't want to die, but I married the girl of my dreams so I could go happy if I had to. There's so much more I want to experience. This was just for fun.

Little Red Bird

"Little red bird, under a chair. Waiting for the crumbs to fall. Daddy said get a job. But don't you see daddy how good I am at catching crumbs. Guns and Gods and little red birds."

"General Custer is sad, underestimated his abilities to win. Sitting Bull turned the tables on him. A comfort to count the battles won after the war is lost. Guns and Gods and little red birds."

"If there was a place, hidden in the stars, reflectin' on heaven's graces. If God had an honest face...the troubled expression would be watching the human race."

Sons of Anarchy

This is another show that I never got into until just recently. My buddy from work has the seasons for this show on DVD. He let me borrow it and I couldn't stop watching it. I must have finished two seasons in like about a week and a half. This show a awesome!

Basically the story behind this show is simple. A biker gang called the Sons of Anarchy operate out of a small town called Charming, located somewhere in California. Northern California I think. Anyway, the club basically run guns in and out of town for a profit obviously. They have the chief of police on their payroll along with some other big names in town. They are very territorial, very big on loyalty, very big on family and respect. Its basically the Mafia on motorcycles. It's the Sopranos meets the Hells Angels. Its also on FX. So when it airs, their is cursing, sex, violence....everything you want out of a show like this. The rest of the storyline is so intricate that I can't even go into all the angles and all the stories behind each episode. If you going to start watching the show, I recommend starting it from the very beginning. Sons of Anarchy is awesome, I love this show. Yes indeed.


So I recently got into this show. My friends were telling me to watch it a while ago and I just never took the time to record it on the DVR. But my in-laws actually have the first season and i watched it and was hooked.

Glee is a show about a high school Spanish teacher who has a real interest in the glee club. He has a chance to take over the club and starts recruiting students for the club. Not too many are interested at first but students soon sign up. However, upon signing up for the club, they are now subject to teasing, torturing and relentless harassment. However each show they manage to over come. The show is filled with numerous moments for the cast to shine. All the characters are unique. They all have their own little quirks and they all can sing. The one that shines above all the rest as far as singing has to be Rachel played by Lea Michele. She has given me goosebumps more times than I can count. And lets not forget about Sue Sylvester played by Jane Lynch. She sometimes steals the show with her clever one liners and hilarious hatred that she has for the Glee club especially the teacher Will Schuester played by Matt Morrison.

The show is awesome. It as a great story line. A great cast. Not to mention, they perform some unbelievable songs in their show. It also has a good message behind it. That even though you might be strange and not popular, doesn't mean you can't be a part of a group, have friends and do something that means something to you. Glee is original, awesome and is should be watched by all.

Top 5 Inspirational / Motivational Movie Speeches

So here are my favorite speeches from movies. There are some funny ones and some speeches that gave me goosebumps. Some will probably not agree with me but its my list and here is my top 5.

1) Braveheart - Its the scene where has to convince an army to go to war. The speech gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. That mixed with the music in the back round makes for what I think is the best inspirational speech in movie history.

2) Stripes - Bill Murray is the man. His speech is to get the troops motivated to practice for graduation is awesome. Not only is it funny but it gets you wanted to go YEAH! after he's done. Classic.

3) Meatballs - "It just doesn't matter". Bill Murray is on the list again. Not too many people know about this movie but I love it. He's got to get his camp motivated for the camp games against their rival camp. And he does it with just three words. "It just doesn't matter". Awesome.

4) Animal House - Oh man! This is hilarious. The late great John Belushi gave us this awesome speech. And it is still one of the funniest speeches of all time. "Did we give up when the Germans bombed pearl harbor". Awesome.

5) Rocky Balboa - Sylvester Stallone wrote this one. Rocky gives his son a great speech about how its not how hard you can hit but about how hard you can get hit and get back up. Very inspirational.

So there's my list. Leave yours if you have any other suggestions.

Honorable Mentions - Independence Day - Cast Away (Tom Hank's speech at the end) - Team America (you know which one)

Top 5 Writer / Directors

So here is my list for my Top 5 Directors of all time. I mainly chose directors who also write their own stuff. I think that's makes it more their movie. I get in these kicks where I will watch a movie by a certain director/writer and then I want to watch all their stuff. So here's my Top 5.

1). Quentin Tarantino - This guy is such a goofy, nerdy, dorky guy but damn can he make movies! The dialogue that he is able to write is unbelievable. Everything ties in together and the story lines are amazing. He can do drama, action, comedy, and I'm pretty sure he made his own genre. Lets call it, awesome! He is my favorite movie maker. His movies that he wrote and directed are (in order) : Reservoir Dogs - Pulp Fiction - Jackie Brown - Kill Bill vol.1 - Kill Bill vol.2 - Deathproof - Inglorious Bastards

2). Christopher Nolan - He's been making movies for a while but only has been popular the last couple years. To me, he is why people should go to the movie theaters. His movies are ground breaking. Memento was a story that was filmed backwards. Insane! He writes his screenplays in such a fascinating way, you can't help but be glued to the screen just waiting on the edge of your seat with what happens next. And thank god he decided to re-do the Batman movies. I think they went downhill after Tim Burton stopped doing them. I can't wait for the next and final one. His movies that he wrote and directed are (in order) : Memento - Insomnia (director only) - Batman Begins - The Prestige - The Dark Knight - Inception

3). Kevin Smith - Not too many people can write comedy like Kevin Smith. His movies are vulgar, but absolutely hilarious. His also can do drama pretty well too. Anyone who says they didn't get a little teary eyed when Jennifer Lopez died in Jersey Girl is lying. His movies are smart, thought out and very well done. And the characters he uses all kinda interweave with each other. I love all of his stuff and own every one of them. His best? Many will say Clerks, but for me it is Dogma. Zack and Miri is a close second. His movies that he wrote and directed are (in order) : Clerks - Mallrats - Chasing Amy - Dogma - Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back - Jersey Girl - Clerks II - Zack and Miri Make a Porno

4). Judd Apatow - He only has 3 movies that he actually wrote and directed but I love every single one of them. His comedy is 100% funny. Very smart too. He uses real life situations for a lot of his comedy and his wife (Leslie Mann) and Seth Rogen so far have been in each one of them. Not too many people liked Funny People, but I think that they had the same reaction that a lot of people had. It wasn't really all that funny. It was more of a drama than anything. The second time I watched it was much, much better. I look forward to his next movie. His movies that he wrote and directed are (in order) : 40 Year Old Virgin - Knocked Up - Funny People

5). James Cameron - My buddy and I will probably continue to have this argument until the end of time. I think James Cameron is a phenomenal Writer/Director. He thinks he is lame, self-centered and has no idea to make a good movie To me, James Cameron makes awesome movies. His movies may not have the most original stories all the time but the details he puts into his movies are fantastic. They are all action packed and high budgeted. Maybe too high budgeted but the action sequences are worth it. The result is unforgettable scenes, indescribable moments and some of the most memorable characters in movie history. His movies that he wrote and directed are (in order) - The Terminator - Aliens - The Abyss - Terminator 2: Judgement Day - True Lies - Titanic - Avatar

So there's my list. Leave your favorites in the comments if you want.

Honorable Mentions : Tim Burton (obviously), Martin Scorcese, John Carpenter, Mel Brooks (thanks Jesse), M. Night Shyamalan, John Hughes, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas (can't leave out Star Wars), Guillermo del Toro, Robert Rodriguez

There are some people who when are in relationships, don't like any sort of label to define them. They don't want to be somebodies girlfriend, somebodies boyfriend, husband, wife and even significant other. I never understood this.

For me, I was always the hopeless romantic. I loved being somebodies boyfriend. Assuming that the other person wanted to be in a relationship, I was in. I loved defining a relationship. Are we dating? Are we exclusive? Am I your boyfriend? Are you my girlfriend? I think that these are questions that should be answered. Now not everyone is going to agree with this. In fact I know several people who believe just the opposite. They don't want any label defining who they are. I don't get it. And I'm not going to start. Because I've never believed that way of thinking. I think that the more labels you put on a relationship, the better. That way, everything is clear and understood. But then what about love? Is love considered a label? Can you put a label on love? Or should you? Is that why its called falling in love? Because you fall into a category? Because love is in fact a label. Love is the term for something when you feel absolutely overcome with happy emotion. I guess that's a good way to put it. So in that case....when you fall in love, you fall into a label. You become labeled "in love". But I think that anyone who is willing to say that they are in love, they should be accepting to labels. To being somebodies something. I am in fact somebodies husband. I love being a husband. I love having the ring on my finger and having a marriage certificate. Which when you think about it, is a label.

I like labels. I think labels are a good thing. That way, you know where you stand. You know who you are and you know what direction you're heading. And the best part is, it has nothing to do with how you act as a human being and doesn't limit your potential for any opportunities that present themselves. I like labels, but not everyone does and that's OK. That's just the way it should be ya see.

My Top 5 Favorite TV Shows

So here are my Top 5 favorite TV shows of all time.

1) - Dawson's Creek - I get made fun of a lot for loving this show, but I don't care. I love it. It came out just as I started high school. It was kinda cheesy, got kinda dumb towards the end but I still own all the seasons on DVD. The music was awesome and I even got to go to the spot where it was filmed. I always wanted to be Pasey but I am the Dawson. I don't know why but I love this show.

2) - The Office - I have all the seasons of this show on DVD as well. I think its the funniest show on TV. Steve Carrell is awesome, the story lines are flippin hilarious and the characters are even better. I'm bummed that Steve Carrell is leaving the show but the story leading up to it will be awesome.

3) - How I Met Your Mother - Might be tied with The Office as the funniest show on TV but in my list, its #3. I can literally sit down with a buddy and talk forever about the episodes and incidents of this show. The slap bet, slapsgiving, revenge of the slap, the crazy/hot scale, Robin Sparkles, crazy eyes, the use of the word awesome. The list goes on. God I love this show. I'm excited for how they reveal how Ted actually met the mother. Its going to be Legend...wait for it and I hope your not lactose intolerant because the second half of the word is....dary!

4) - Grey's Anatomy - I have all the seasons of this show too. My wife and I love this show. The story lines got kinda dull there in the middle but they're starting to get really good. And the finale of this last season where they guy was walkin around shooting god...I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Good stuff.

5) - The Big Bang Theory / Friends - This last spot is a tie between Big Bang Theory and Friends. I can't decide between the two. The Big Bang Theory is awesome but Friends has some classic stuff. Too hard to decide so its a tie. Its my list and I can do that.

So there's my Top 5 favorite TV shows of all time. Feel free to leave your Top 5. Yes Indeed!

Top 5 Favorite Actors (Not All Time)

So here are my Top 5 favorite actors. Not my favorite actors of all time. That might be a little too hard (that's what she said). These are actors currently making movies pretty regularly.

1). Steve Carrell - The Office, Bruce Almighty, 40 Year Old Virgin, get Smart, Date Night.....the guy is hilarious. And he's just such a fun guy. I want to go have a beer with him or somethin....ya know. Good stuff. (Sucks that he's leaving The Office)

2). Leonardo Dicaprio - He's been killin it lately. Blood Diamond, The Departed, Shutter Island, Inception. And his early stuff is freakin great too. He's a solid actor. Hard to believe he hasn't won a Oscar yet.

3). Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp is the man. I loved all the Pirates' movies, and he freakin delivers in any role. Hard to believe he hasn't won an Oscar yet either. Whats the deal with that. My friend Ellen would put him #1 but on my list, he's 3....sorry Ellen.

4). Matt Damon - This guy tears it up in any role he's in. Those Bourne movies were awesome as hell. And he's funny too. Cool guy.

5). Joseph Gordon-Levitt - I absolutely fell in love with 500 Days of Summer and he was bad ass in Inception. And freakin 3rd Rock from the Sun cmon.Watch for this guy. Good things are to come.

So there's my list, leave yours in the comments. Remember its not all time, its current. Yes Indeed!

Honorable Mentions - Will Smith, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Edward Norton, Anton Yelchin, Robert Downey Jr.

HOLY S***! This movie blew me away. There is so much going on with this movie that I don't even know if I can fit it in to a blog.....but I'll try.

So Christopher Nolan does it again and delivers. This is by far his best work. There is so much story to this that I was on information overload and yet was still able to follow along. The idea is that while your sleeping other people can infiltrate your mind and extract information from it. Now there is a lot more that goes into it but that is the basic idea. The idea behind inception is that instead of retrieving information, you plant an idea adjusting a person's whole belief structure. And that is where the movie goes. The writing that went into this movie is almost beyond comprehension. Nolan's story goes from holy s***. A dream within a dream within a dream within a dream. My mind was mesmerized and I kinda felt like I was high or something. And the effects make you feel like the building in which you are watching the movie is going to start turning on itself. This movie was absolutely amazing! And Leonardo DiCaprio tore it up in this one. He's definitely on the list for my top 5 favorite actors (coming soon). And Joesph Gordon-Levitt was also rockin the s*** in this one. Fighting someone without gravity, nasty! He's also on that top 5 list.

Go see this movie and try to see it in the theater, the feeling you get is that of dreaming. I probably need to update my Top 5 favorite movies cause this one will be in it. Watch this movie and check out Christopher Nolan's other movies. He's writes and directs all of them. Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Inception.

God this movie was so good.....yes in-freaking-deed!

Top 5 Chick Flicks for Dudes

So here is a list of what I think are the best chick flicks for dudes. Meaning movies that are decent and or funny enough to watch without a chick. Hopefully I don't get made fun of too much for this one.

1). He's Just Not That Into You - I don't know why, but I love this movie. It breaks down several different aspects of relationships into 2 hours of film. And I totally was the Ginnifer Goodwin character always wondering if she was going to call and or analyzing every little detail which is sad I know but true nonetheless. My friends even gave me the book when I had a rough break up with a girl except they changed the name to SHE'S just not that into you. Anyways, good flick. Watch it.

2). Love Actually - This is a great film all around and has good acting, great interweaving stories and good ending. If you haven't checked this one it.

3). Mean Girls - Back when Lindsay Lohan was attractive and sane, she did this movie and it was freaking hilarious. Cmon, it was written by Tina Fey and some SNL guys in there. Hot chicks and it.

4). Pretty Woman - A 1990's Julia Roberts playing a hooker....nuff said, watch it.

5). The Proposal - Went to go see it with my wife and actually liked it more than I thought I would. Some really funny parts along with some decent stuff from Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Watch it.

So that's my Top 5. If you don't like....guess what its my list. Feel free to leave your list in the comments if you want.......yes indeed.

Top 5 Underrated Movies

So here a list of what I think to be the Top 5 Underrated movies of all time. This list is flexible, so leave comments and if the movie makes the cut, I will edit the list. But only if the movie makes the cut....after all....its my list.

1). Dazed and Confused - This movie is so good and I don't think it got enough play. The movie itself is awesome in so many ways and has so many awesome parts. Too much to go into detail. And by far is Matthew Mcconaughey's best it.

2). Fanboys - If you like Star Wars then there is no way to not like this movie. This movie is good even if you don't like Star Wars. Which if you don't like Star Wars then your dumb....sorry Jess! God this movie is it.

3). Grandma's Boy - I think I laughed the entire movie. Adam Sandler's boys star in this pothead, video game based movie. There are so many lines to repeat and just laugh at. it.

4). Just Friends - This movie was in theaters for like 2 weeks but everyone that I talk to say that this movie is so flippin funny. Very quotable movie and very very it.

5). Taken - Didn't know how I felt about this one. Liam Neeson? Uh he was rockin the s*** in that one. Bad ass! Watch it.

Honorable Mentions: Funny People - Hancock - Van Wilder - The Professional - The House Bunny - The Benchwarmers - I love You Man - Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

So I just got married. The date was June 19th of 2010. It was the best day of my life. The only other time that I can think of when all those people will be in attendance and all the attention will be on me is when I die. So getting married is a better way to get that attention. I say it was the best day of my life and it really was. I got to marry my best friend, I experienced like 57 different emotions throughout the day and some of which was at the same time. I got to see all of my family and friends. I got to sing, dance, eat, drink and be merry and it was the best feeling in the world. I wouldn't trade the day for anything.

Me and Jess lived together before we got married, even before we got engaged. We have joint bank accounts and are not going to do anything different. The only real difference is that her last name will now become mine (which is kinda cool actually). So there really shouldn't be any different kind of feeling before the 19th and now. But there is. I can't explain it but i do feel different. I'm married and it feels phenomenal. Marriage is not something that I take lightly. I think its a sacred thing, which it is. I only plan to do this once and there is no doubt that I married the right woman for me. She is my everything, my world, my life and now she's my wife. Marriage is awesome and it was the easiest decision that I have ever made in my entire life. So yeah, I feel different. I feel alive. I feel awesome. I feel..... married, and its the best feeling that I've ever had.

500 Days of Summer

I borrowed this movie from a friend and then I had to go out and buy it because I knew it was one that I had to own. I loved everything about this movie. The actors and their performances, the music, the story, and especially the beginning and the end.

The opening of the movie states that this movie is fiction and any similarities are purely coincidence to any persons.....especially you Jenny Beckman....bitch. Now those are not the exact words but you get the idea. But isn't that the best way to start a movie. To indirectly but directly say that this movie is about you and your a bitch! Good good stuff. Now it also says that this movie is not a love story and it actually holds true to that. Its not, because its a story about real life. And 9 times out of 10, the real story is not the version that ends up in the movies. Its always the happy ending with the girl gets the guy or the guy gets the girl, even if one of them does something totally unforgivable. So the movie is true. Its also shot really well. Its keeps going back and forth between the 500 days. And the movies reflects that beautifully.

The main story of the movie is this guy who is looking for love. He the hopeless romantic that's believes in fate and destiny and true love and coincidence doesn't exist because its all part of the plan. He meets this girl who is beautiful and has all of the same interests. But when things get a little too serious between the two of them, she resorts back to never wanting to be somebodies girlfriend and she doesn't want to be a couple. So she says the she doesn't want to be too serious or be a couple but then she confuses the crap out of the guy by holding his hand, snuggling during movies, spending all of her free time with him and having some sex with him. But she's not his girlfriend. Real life is good stuff in movies.

So the movies continues and good situations happen with great dialogue and the perfect ending. Watch this movie. Good good stuff....yes indeed.

The Gospel according to Big Fish

So I recently had surgery and I was off work for about 2 months. And in that time, I watched a lot of movies. And one of the movies I watched was Big Fish. A Tim Burton masterpiece to say the least. But I had a better appreciation for it after I watched it this last time. The movie is filled with these great lines that can actually build some inspiration inside of you. So here are some excerpts from the movie Big Fish:

"Kept in a small bowl, the goldfish will remain small. With more space, the fish will grow double, triple, or quadruple it's size. - It occurred to me then, that perhaps the reason for my growth was that I was intended for larger things. After all, a giant man can't have an ordinary sized life"

"Now there comes a point when a reasonable man will swallow his pride and admit he's made a terrible mistake. The truth is, I was never a reasonable man."

"How you gonna make it without your shoes?" - "Well I suspect it will hurt...a lot."

"That night I reached two conclusions. The first was that a dangerous path is made much worse by darkness. The second is that I was hopelessly and irrevocably lost. These woods would become my graveyard. As difficult as it was to reach Spectre, I was fated to get there eventually. After all, no man can avoid reaching the end of his life. And then I realized, this wasn't the end of my life. - This isn't how I die."

"What happened to your shoes?" - " They kinda got ahead of me"

"Forget it kid, don't waste your time, she's outta your league." - "What do you mean, you don't even know me." - Sure I do, you were hot shit back in Hickville, but here in the real world you got squat! You don't have a plan, you don't have a job, you don't have anything but the clothes on your back. You were a big fish in a small pond but this here is the ocean, and your drowning! Take my advice, go back to Puddleville you'll be happy there. - Now you say I don't have a plan. I'm gonna find that girl and marry her and spend the rest of my life with her. And I don't have a job, but I would if you gave me one. And I may not have much, but I have more determination than any man your likely to meet"

"You become what you always were...a very big fish"

"A man tell his stories so many times that he becomes the stories. They live on after him, and in that way, he becomes immortal"

Theres some good stuff in those words. Some inspirational stuff that my friends have said to me in a way. So I think that if everyone lived their lives with a little bit of those words behind them, then that's pretty good.
