Current Events

So what's up?  What's up with you?

As always, I am redesigning my website.  Trying to create the whole thing in Flash because of my increasing familiarity with the program, or maybe just incorporate some aspects of Flash within the overall design.  I don't know yet, I have to investigate and see how it works out.

In the meantime, I am reading a VONDERFUL book, Between a rock and a hard place, by Aron Ralston. He is the guy that had to free himself from a boulder he got pinned under by amputating his lower right arm using a dull swiss army-type tool. Very insane I know. 

Film soon.  I happen to have low expectations of this book to film adaptation, only because I was deeply offended by Sean Penn's adaptation of Into the Wild, an amazing book by Jon Krakauer which I loved. However, it seems to be common knowledge that once you read a book, the film typically never stands up to your personal interpretation of it.  However, I will probably see 127 Hours when it comes out.  Just to see.

Via wikipedia:

British film director Danny Boyle is currently working on the film 127 Hours about the true story of Ralston.[12] Filming is expected to take place in March of 2010, with a release date scheduled for late 2010. Fox Searchlight will be funding the film.[13] Actor James Franco will play Ralston.[14]
