Just cause I haven't posted in awhile

So saw "rise of the planet of the apes" recently and I have to say it was pretty good!

Great acting, nice(ish) soundtrack, and great tip of the hats to the original Planet of the apes!
Keeping to the plot lines and such (tho I think Battle for the planet of the apes would say that "Caesar" was the son of apes gone back in time but we WILL ignore that paradox)

For sure go and see Rise of the planet of the apes and enjoy it even if you haven't seen another ape movie in your life (you'll like it)

Torchwood

So the new season of Torchwood is sweet...
I'd say it's already better than children of the earth
What is torchwood you ask?
Well torchwood is the BBC spin off series of Doctor who... in fact it's an anagram of Doctor who... (pretty sweet right)
It's centered around Captain Jack Harkness who we met in Season 1 of the new doctor who series...
Rose accidentally made him immortal and then the 51st century man got accidentally put in the 1800's where he lived till the 21st century...
He took Torchwood ( created by the queen of england to stop and protect Britain from aliens) when it got decimated by the cybermen dalek battle (where rose got stuck in the other universe)
Rebuilt it and then it ran for 3 seasons and now it's in it's 4th season...
I couldn't deal as much with the first season due to bbc3's explicitness... however 3 was a serial (like 4 is now) and it was really good without the dumb stuff...
There you go a review and overview on torchwood...
Watch season 4 (you will be okay without watching previous stuff fyi)!

Weekend!

JUST GOT BACK...
...from Michigan Vacation with the Schenke family (and drake's family too)...
First I love beaches so it was awesome cause I got to be on the beach all saturday!
hanging out with kim's family was fun...
though my highlight was hanging out with her:)
I enjoyed the continued friendship developing that happened during the weekend :)

on a different note
I made lego zombies... and these sold well on ebay...
so I think I will be continuing in the zombie making business with my legos... I'm excited, because that means I get to occasionally buy legos (so I can get bone pieces to customize them into zombies)
A ploy you ask to get more Legos?
Well...
Maybe... But since the first batch sold for enough money to buy more legos, and 2 meals I'd say it'll be worth it (especially since I chose a set that should make more zombies that my first set had in it...
Spend some to make some... or make some to make some more?
either way I'm excited!
:)
