News of the Day

Glad to see some people digging the tunes we are listening to, but it is probably best to note that I (ebe) do most of the updating so the list is a bit lop-sided towards my favorites. If you have not checked out the two videos I directed you to- you should! And not becasue they are so awesome, on the contrary, they are awful. But funny. And that is what counts.
In other news, we saw the Jones. Indiana that is. Sony Center has a cheap English movie tuesday which of course we couldn't pass up. I was not raised in the cult of Indiana, but Ian was, so off we went accompanied by two friends.
The beginning and end were so achingly bad I had to bite my lip to keep it down to a muffled giggle. Aparently even that was too loud as Ian hissed at me, "Don't do that! It ruins it for me." Personally I thought George Lucas's over-excited style had done the ruining for me, but I was surprised to see the middle shape itself up quite well. You have to buy into the cheese, but if you can, the action sequences were fairly good, some of the jokes were funny, and I even had a few gasps of surprise. So, for me, better then expected, but I will leave it to Ian to give the full "I love Indie" spiel.

On the personal front, we continue to do well and dream about our month-long-end-of- trip-extravaganza. It looks like Istanbul is likely to be our first stop, then we will head into Greece, Croatia, Italy, France, and Netherlands & Oktoberfest once again. Sure to be a lot of additions made to the schedule as we continue to dream. Sadly we will not be heading to Poland with our friends as their time runs short, but we might still make it there ourselves. Who knows where this crazy road goes?

AND- today is our 4 1/2 year anniversary. E gads that seems like a long time!

Dad and I were catching up on your blog - and we, too, cannot believe it is four-and-a-half years. In fact, we think you're out and out lying about that. Just our opinion!

Since you "enjoyed" Daniel Kublbock's 'You Drive Me Crazy' - you really should check out 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight'
