up and coming

Did you preorder your set of Star Wars on Blu Ray? I did, and I'm looking forward to receiving them from Amazon on Friday, the official release date.

Despite George tinkering with them when he should leave well enough alone, and despite the prequels being pretty lame overall, I still opted to get the entire set - all six movies. For sure I wanted the original trilogy - that's a no brainer - but I figured if I didn't also get the prequel I'd regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but some day. I'm no good at being noble but it doesn't take much to realize that deciding between just the original trilogy and the full set doesn't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.

I've also developed an addiction for watching Breaking Bad. Based on high praise from a couple of people I know, even though the premise didn't sound at all interesting to me, I purchased season one. Then season two, then this week season three arrived and I watched the first episode of that season the other night.

And.. in this post of random stuff, here's a fun little site whose link I stole off of someone's Facebook page: Translation Telephone. Check it out - enter a phrase and see how it gets altered in translation around the world. Click here. I typed "keep on trucking" in the original box and after it went through the various translations and then back into English, it read, "number."
