my weekend

I got infected with some death throat infection, unfortunately. Is it possible to alternate between naps and hot baths literally all day? Yes. Yes, it is.

Well, I also watched some movies:

  • Stevie – a really wonderful and moving documentary. Filmmaker Steve James revisits his old little brother and gets re-involved in his life. Explaining it beyond that would be difficult. It’s alternately hilarious, awkward, and incredibly sad. It’s not an easy movie to watch.
  • The Big Sleep – I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without seeing this. Now, does it make me some sort of heretic to claim that I didn’t find Lauren Bacall to be that hot in this movie? Am I kicked out of the male gender? But seriously, the scene with Philip Marlowe and the chick in the bookstore is about the hottest thing I’ve ever seen. She got hot for him because she thought he was a bookworm. Oh man, that’s second only to my Counter-strike fantasy, but that’s another story.
  • Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead – I have seen this around a billion times, but it was on my Netflix queue because whatshername had never seen it before. Beyond the fact that this movie is awesome, it has a special place in my heart because I always remember my friends Aaron and Will as Rosencrantz & Guildenstern when we read the play aloud in our senior english class.

I also nerded out a little bit and helped get an aggregator going on I also took a retarded picture.

I guess it was fairly productive after all.
