bigbumble: (Octopus and Traffic Cone)
I've learned that it is very soothing to have my DVD of the original Fantasia playing while I do my taxes. My most favorite sequence is "The Nutcracker Suite". In Fantasia 2000 my favorite sequence is "Rhapsodie in Blue". What are your favorite Fantasia sequences?

I went for a regular doctor appointment yesterday. I'm probably not going to die this year. I did get the latest tetanus shot/whooping cough shot and I'm feeling that today.

I'm working on a small helicopter recovery model rocket for teeny tiny engines. It is a very complex model. We will see how it goes.

Cheerios had an offer a couple of weeks ago. Send in two box tops and get a free trip to the movies. (Actually it was give two secret codes from inside of "Specially marked" boxes to the web site and print out a coupon, but you get the idea.) It seemed appropriate to use the coupon from a circular cereal to see "The Life of Pi". I know that sounds fishy, but it is nothing to get pissed off about.

Anyway, I enjoyed the flick. It is very visual, almost Fantasia 2000 like in spots. As a non-fiction partner to the movie, I recommend reading Thor Heyerdahl's "Kon-Tiki" if you haven't already. I'm hard pressed to say read "Kon-Tiki" before of after seeing the movie because it is arguably spoilery even though the stories are unrelated. "Kon-Tiki" might change the way you see the magic of "The Life of Pi" movie.

I went to see The Avengers movie this morning. Good solid mindless pulp.

I did miss the John Steed and Mrs. Emma Peel characters, but then again, how could you replace Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg?
