“Up up up and down, Turn turn turnaround, Round round roundabout, And over again…”

Last weekend we went to Family Kingdom Amusement Park. They’re a client of ours, and I had gotten some wristband passes that we hadn’t used all summer. Living at the beach, you tend to avoid the tourist hotspots. Since it was technically “the end of summer” we thought perhaps the crowds wouldn’t be that bad, and the weather would at least be accommodating. They weren’t, and it was. We had a fantastic time. I honestly had no idea they had so many terrific kids rides. My wife and I had the most amazing time just walking around and letting her ride everything she wanted to ride. It was a perfect Sunday, the kind of day you work all week and look forward to, then spend the entire following week looking back on with overflowing happiness. Definitely a day that memories are made of.

While we were there, I thought, “well, I’ve got this wristband on, and it doesn’t look like there’s anyone in line for the rollercoaster, and I DID bring my Flip Video camera with me… I wonder how hard it would be to shoot a video of that rollercoaster?”. Okay, so it was a little more difficult than I thought, but it was fun nonetheless, and it did give me an opportunity to play with my iMovie. I’ve had that on my “to do” list now since I bought my Macbook, but I just haven’t really had anything fun to edit… until now. I definitely think I wanna shoot more videos.

Anyway, awesome family weekend spent with the most amazingly wonderful family on earth… enjoy the video.

“Thor”… ’nuff said.

So here we go. One more Avenger gets his movie. I dunno, I mean, it’s Thor, you know? It’s not Tony Stark, it’s not a suit of armor, it’s not “witty” like Robert Downey Jr. It’s not supposed to be. It’s walking a razor thin line though. These movies are notoriously hard to pull off (Clash of the Titans ring a bell?  Percy Jackson, anyone?) and unfortunately, my only reaction to seeing Anthony Hopkins wearing an eye patch is, “really? THAT’S Odin?”

My only hope is that Natalie Portman could save it, but then again, she chose to star in those horrible prequels for George Lucas…

UPDATE: Guess was apparently bootleg video footage was yanked from Trailer Addict?
