Today we went to the Cape. And while we were there we visited my grandparents and caught up with my sister Shelby and my parents and then Allison,Mom,Dad and Shelby and I went to the British Beer Company for lunch. It’s a great place, there are many saying written all over the walls about drinks. A good time and great food.

This is Dad’s new tree at the Cape. We’re hoping that eventually it will grow pretty tall and we will get our privacy back. You see the house behind it, well for the past 20+ years you couldn’t see the house behind the fence at this angle, or you coud only see the roof. The old house was torn down and this one went up in its place. So therefore… the tree. It is a Maple something, I know it has red in the name, Like Maple -blank- Red or something like that.

I really need to go on another trip soon. I’ve taken way too many pictures of the cats already, but tonight I got another. This is Oliver and he likes to be held in my arms like a baby on his back. He’s very very cute when he does this. I went for a bike ride today and passed some beautiful new foals in a field, but didn’t take my camera with me. Maybe next time.

Photo-A-Day problems.

Posted by BenSpark on April 30, 2005

Okay there is no picture on the blog for the Photo-A-Day. The blog this function for buzznet doesn’t seem to be working, but once it is I will post up the photo here. In the meantime you can see today’s Photo-A-Day by going to this link. Buzznet Photo-A-Day.

So I haven’t posted alot lately. I did make mention of the fact that Allison and I are heading to Boston on Thursday night to see the Serenity preview. I can’t wait. I’ll have a good photo from that hopefully.

When I went to the see the Serenity trailer I noticed alot of other trailers out there from some funny and interesting movies that are coming soon.

First off is Batman Begins. Some exciting news about this movie is that it is being pushed up on its release date.

And there is a newer trailer for Fantastic Four too. And it isn’t as bad as the first one that came out, in fact I may even be a little excited to see this one. I figure it will be sorta like the hulk movie, which, while it was visually interesting wasn’t much of a good movie all in all. But I have higher hopes for Fantastic Four because it is less CGI dependant.

And I can’t resist an Owen Wilson movie especially when he is paired with Vince Vaughn. And that is what you get with the Wedding Crashers. Two guys whose mission is to crash weddings and hook up with the single ladies at the weddings.

I don’t know alot about this movie The House of D, but it looks like an interesting one.

How about web comics. What have I been reading lately…

Dr. Devious vs. Lincoln High. The premise is that an evil genius from a James Bond type movie has been incarcerated for 30 years and when he gets out is put to work as a High School Biology teacher. And some of his henchmen are also teachers in the school. The comic isn’t that old yet and there are only about 100 comics so far. Quick and easy to get caught up.

Real Life. I finally finished reading through the backlog of this comic. And it is one of my favorite ones so far. Greg Dean has a great style and some fantastic humor.

So check these out and enjoy.

Also, tonight Allison and I watched the first two episodes of Firefly, titled Serenity. To get ready for the Serenity movie. Confused, you shouldn’t be, you should buy the Firefly DVD on the right and get caught up and be prepared for September 30th. Can’ Stop the Signal!

Gotta love Margaritaville Tequila. The weather is here and I wish you were beautiful. It is getting to be warm enough to have some Margaritas out on the porch. Can’t wait to get down to the Cape and start living on Key West time.

Duncan hardly ever sleeps in this position, that I’ve seen. Anyway the three boys had a lazy day today. It was raining out and a perfect day for napping.

Oliver has been all over me this afternoon, he finally settled down and sat at the computer. But I think he wants to use the mouse.

Oh, I shall be misbehavin’…..

Posted by BenSpark on April 27, 2005

So yesterday the Serenity Trailer goes up on the web. And this morning I get an e-mail from the Browncoats, well actually from Joss Whedon through the Browncoats. The gist of the e-mail was that there is going to be an advanced screening next Thursday, a full 5 months prior to the actual movie release. And guess who got me tickets!!! Yes Allison was able to snag two tickets for us to see the show at the Boston Lowes Boston Common Theatre. I’m home today out sick because of a Dentist appointment and this morning I was trying to get tickets all morning and Fandango was not working correctly so I couldn’t get through so I asked Allison to keep an eye on the site and low and behold I get a message from Allison telling me that she scored tickets. And I’m glad I asked her because it is now sold out. Shiny!!! (If you don’t get that reference then you need to go and get you some Firefly DVD’s)

I aim to misbehave…

Posted by BenSpark on April 26, 2005

With those words, Captain Malcolm Reynolds gets the excitement up for Serenity, the new movie from the mind of Joss Whedon. Ever since Firefly was cancelled from TV I’ve been waiting for this movie to come out. I still have to wait some time longer (Serenity opens September 30, 2005). The trailer came out today at 4:00pm. And it was awesome. There is humor, action and some big damn heroes. If you are not up on the mythos behind Firefly, do yourself a favor and buy the DVD’s and watch them all. Over and over. The episodes are fantastic. If I recommend any movie this year, besides my major write ups about Sahara, then this would be the one you must see. You need to see Serenity. It would be so incredible if the movie did well enough to get the show back on TV. That would be amazing and an unheard of accomplishment. And if the movie does well then Joss Whedon will have done another amazing accomplishment. And that is being the man who took a failed movie and made a hit TV show and then taking a failed TV show and making a hit movie. I really hope that happens.

This is my sister Tara’s dog Taylor. As you can see she was way too fast for me to focus on and catch as she was playing catch with her tennis ball. I did manage to get a couple of good photos of the dogs right after this one, but since this is the Photo-A-Day section, meaning one photo only I choose this one because I found it funny. I’ll post the other two photos in another gallery.
