Spoilt Rotten

So I don't read Harry Potter. Never have, never intend to. However that doesn't mean I want to know how it ends.

Hello! Movies! (yes they are not the best movies ever, though I really did like Azkaban)

I'm not a huge fan of spoilers. In fact I love watching movies without knowing ANYTHING about them (I saw Terminator 2 without knowing anything or even seeing Terminator 1, THAT was awesome!). But I understand that some people (like my partner) just have to know.

Some people are dicks and will just tell you how things end and ruin them for you without asking though. However, I did find this from danah boyd very funny.

The spoiler who took the cake in the reports I got? The asswipe who had the gaul to rent a plane and fly it over San Francisco/Berkeley with spoilers.
Shit that's so evil it's funny. There's no escape from a guy in a plane!

The weird thing is now you could tell me what the end is and I wouldn't believe you. Too many crazy people in the world have ruined the spoiler. How weird is that?

Actually, I've been coming up with alternate endings for the books. I quite like "Zombie Harry", "Ron screws up a spell and turns into a beautiful girl and marries Harry", and "Harry wakes up from seven books worth of nightmare to discover he's still inside the Matrix".

Please feel free to leave your own alt-ending in the comments.

A little HST in all of us

It's Hunter S Thompson's birthday!

So go out today and celebrate the life of Hunter S. His journalism and social commentary are timeless. So open one of his books, take a stand, live by your own set of rules and most of all have fun, even if it's only for a day.

Blah post

I love it when I'm able to coordinate how I look and how I feel.

Today I am sitting at my desk wearing old sneakers, my (favourite) gray hooded sweatshirt and baggy jeans. Hence: cruddy lookin'. I feel exactly the same.

My eyes are burning, my throat is sore and the glands in my neck have swollen to the size of [insert humorous analogy, possibly testicle related].

So this is the perfect time for me to be busy at work. Ugh. I'm going to the flicks tonight (which will be good) but tomorrow, I don't know. This could be the end.

Nah, it'll just be a sick day. Which is kind of stink, I like to be healthy when I take a sickie (boom boom).

As a quick end note, we're going to see Transformers. Apparently there is a trailer playing before the film for something codenamed "Cloverfield" and apparently it's awesome. Though why it took this long (a whole week) to circulate the internet I have no idea. A week is like a a decade in internet-years. Go here for more info, or less info, it IS a teaser afterall. Oh and an "official" website.
