Watto's Junk Yard / The Incredibles!
« on: November 6, 2004, 11:00 AM »
Well,

My wife and I went out to dinner with a few friends last night and decided to see a movie afterwards.  There was indecision all around on what to see, so I talked them into The Incredibles.

Episode 3 Prview aside (which ROCKED on the big screen), the movie was actually REALLY good.  Kind of like how a James Bond/Superhero movie should be. 

Once again, Pixar is able to crank out a movie where the characters are very well thought out and VERY human.  I'm not going to offer up any spoliers (since this is the start of the thread), but it was a pretty great movie!  Anyone else catch this one last night?

Jeff

ps.
Also had a preview for next year's Pixar movie - Cars.

Not too bad so far... hanging in the meaty middle of the pack.

Gah, my shooting % are terrible!  Both on the floor and the line, definately my weekness so far.

The latest addition to my iPod?

The Episode 3 Trailer.

 ;D

With iTunes 4.7, it's easier than ever to transfer .mov QuickTime files to iPod files so now the trailer lives on my iPod where I can hear "Lord Vader.... Yes My Master.. Rise" whenever and where ever I want.

Why I love my iPod even more:

I was able to use the new iTunes 4.7 software to convert my .mov Quicktime file to an iPod audio file.

Now, I can listen to the trailer whenever I want at work, in the car, at the store.   ;D

I've got it programmed so that "Lord Vader... Yes Master?... Rise" plays every time I start up the iPod Playlist...

Kubricks / Re: Power of the Kubricks!
« on: November 5, 2004, 11:46 AM »
$10 to ship a single Kubrick? That's weak. They have one of those shipping systems set up by total price of the item?


I was snooping around trying to decide if I should buy one and it looked like it was $5.45 for basic AirMail (7-10 days), $14 for Express (2-4 days), and then $5 more for Insurance/Registered mail.

The $10 was probably Basic shipping plus Insurance/Registered Mail perhaps?  :-\

Hmmm...

I am not sure what to make of this Logray/Jawa mystery.   :-\

I am tempted to buy 1x each chase from Actio-HQ, then sell the extra (what ever I don't get in my case), then again, I am tempted to not spend $50 on a single figure.   :-\

Decisions, decisions, decisions...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Chinese Food Thread
« on: November 5, 2004, 10:54 AM »
Unforunately, I am sensative to MSG in large doses so most Asian Foods are out for me (lest I spent the rest of the night in the bathroom  :-X). 

If I am feeling particularily willing to risk my gut on Chinese, I will indulge in a Sweet and Sour Chicken or a Sesame Chicken with rice dish, but that's about as far as I push it. 

I agree though about the Mongolian BBQ, that is usually pretty good.  We usually end up at Khan's Mongolian a few times a year for a tasty "meat cooked on a big rock" treat!

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: VOTC C-3PO on Ebay??
« on: November 4, 2004, 08:00 PM »
Very interesting...

Seems like NewForce got in the wave 2.5 vOTC case and are shipping them now (I got my ship confirmation today... I totally forgot that I had ordered this case from them). 

Got my 2x 3PO from Amazon today, along with my wave 2.5 case from NewForce (which I forgot I ordered because I didn't expect it to ship).

So, because I only needed 1 C-3PO,  it appears I've got a few extra C-3PO to sell.
edit: my extra C-3POs have been SOLD!

 :)

I plan on next throwing up at C3, perhaps on a Californian.   :-*

And I'll be there with my Digital Camera to document it for all at JD.com to see...  ;)

Was there anything funky going on in that room?

Maybe the dog saw something "weird" that you were trying in there and now he's afraid to see it again?   :P


Or maybe it's just strange dog behavior.  My sister's dog did basically the same thing, just stopped going in her room one day.  After a bit of investigating, it turned out that her dog was freaked out by a new stuffed "Tigger" she got as a gift. 

When Tigger was on the dresser, facing out into the room, the dog wanted no part of it.  However, if my sister turned the Tigger around, the dog had no problem.  It used to be a fun game at our parent's house for a bit.  Walk towards Tigger and watch the dog get up and leave the room.

For some reason, that Tigger freaked out her dog.  So, is there any 1 new object that has been added to the room recently?  A figure, an article of clothing, something?  If so, try moving things arouns and see if that "fixes" the problem.

Cool.

And, remember what Dale said, check the location of the chases in those cases!  :)

Mine should be here soon as well... hopefully by the weekend,

Jeff
