It's time to show something of the house. Nothing has changed since the last update becuase we're dealing with city government delays. At least you can see what the main floor should be like. We love the openness of the layout, and the fact that you can get on the deck from the dining room and the master bedroom. Posted by Hello

This is the basement. It will be walkout, but we moved most of the windows to one side, as the theatre will be in the upper right-hand corner of the floor plan. Eventually we hope to add a wetbar area, a bathroom, a work-out room and a third bedroom. Posted by Hello

Here is what our house will eventually look like from the outside. Posted by Hello

Peaceful existence for our underwater ally

Saw Napoleon Dynamite last night, primarily on the recommendation of my sister and a couple of good comments from Wilson. I'm rating it an 8 for now, and I'll see it again on DVD with Justin to make sure that fits. Although there were times I was groaning internally at the ridiculousness of some of the scenes, it did make me laugh. Also of course, the climax scene is hilarious and brings the movie together nicely. And I have to say I like it because I'm not a freaking idiot. ;)

Dancing, yeah

Finally saw Saturday Night Fever last night. Yes -- it was the first time I watched this disco-loving film. Rated it a 4 though, as the editing and scene transitions reminded me of a student film. Plus, it was hard to follow the core plot; the story kind of meanders. But I loved the music! :"> Anyway, I've been kind of lax with updating the site lately. I'm going to get some pictures of the house plans up here -- and before you ask, no nothing has changed yet; city is still working on the sewer. In the meantime, I've been playing around at ColorCell. Check out my latest:

More Movies

Saw Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow last night -- rated it a 5. Basically the best thing about the movie is the 50s look. The cinematography is very comic-book-ish, fairly unique, and well-done. But the story was predictable in parts, and not very captivating. Also this week, I've seen two other documentaries. First Born Rich -- rated a 6. A nice first film from the inheritor of the Johnson & Johnson fortune. But nothing really surprising or interesting revealed there. Though it was kind of fun to see Ivanka's childroom room. Second, we bought Fahrenheith 9/11 and watched it again -- rated a 7. Michael goes a little too far in some parts, but overall I like his presentation, and am very interested in many of the points he has to make.
