Before Sunrise, with a musical twist?

Just watched "Once". I didn't think I could do it alone, 'cuz I knew it'd be so damn sweet and cute, but I managed. :-) Bittersweet ending, the way all movie love stories should end. I don't wanna say it's realistic, but...maybe it is for the majority of encounters. Isn't that why we love Before Harry Met Sally and Before Sunrise/Sunset?

Also what is it that's so beautiful about music that it's really easy to fall for someone that makes beautiful music?

OKAY clearly I am caught up in the warm fuzziness of the movie. There is a reason there is no "love" tag for posts here. It has no place!

things I wish I had the determination to do

BOOMBOX from Ely Kim on Vimeo.

"100 days, 100 songs, 100 locations, 100 dances."
He's a Yale grad student!
#99 is HGS courtyard perhaps?

Thanks to my officemate who brought it to light. (I thought it was another 100 dances video which I didn't like very much. This one's cute.)

gonna drunk dial my blog now

Tumblr, which hosts some of my other blogs, now has a new call-to-post feature. You call it, and it will publish as an audio post. Who knows why you'd want to do this, but it's nice knowing I have the option.

ps - Thank you to Sweet Services for sending me 5lbs of candy! A dedicated post is to come. They seem to often have candy giveaways if you check their blog! :-)

I love the willingness to mock your own genre

NBC wouldn't let me post to tumblr. Boo. Mike Herg decided to make me watch this. I'm glad. :-)

old school meets new school

Wooden 2GB thumb drive doubles as Post-It Notes dispenser

And what if I ran a post-it note program from the USB? Huz. Zah.

late post, but in case you didn't know

The Madden '09 simulation of the Super Bowl was only off by 2 points.

Madden 09 predicts Pittsburgh Steelers victory in Super Bowl XLIII

They predicted a Steelers victory of 28-24. Now, I do understand that 28-24 is VERY different from the real 27-23. It'd be pretty awesome if the simulation also included a safety. But I was still excited at the time. No one really understood my mile-a-minute muttering trying to explain how/why a video game prediction even happened, and no one really cared because the game was awesome, but I thought I'd point it out to anyone else who thought that was cool.
