Time for a new project to do projects on… Wood working in the house is a messy business and the garbage can makeshift horse is not cutting it. Time for a real workbench. Pop it in the garage, the weather is good year round to make it use-able all the time. Went looking at pre-fab benches and they do not seem strong enough for the type of work I want to do, and they all start at over $150.
So I will build one:
2 Fence posts
1 sheet 3/4 plywood
assorted screws and clamps
estimated cost about $60 US plus blood, sweat and tears.
Sat down at the computer last night wiggled the mouse and nothing happened. Checked the computer it was turned on, but the screen wouldn’t wake up. Thought the mouse and keyboard might be unplugged, got on my hands and knees cursing while trying to dig around to the cables, only to find everything plugged in securely. Rage building I picked up the mouse, gave it a good stern shake and tossed it back down thinking all sorts of evil thoughts (bad mouse, broken usb, some other time consuming and costly error). The mouse hit the pad and flipped over to reveal this little note.
Riotous laughter filled the void created by mindless mechanical rage.
The long awaited and fan debated “Odd Thomas” movie finally out.
So many mixed reviews about it, let me sum it up with no plot spoilers - It sucks! I am sorry Mr. Koontz as you have been one of my greatest literary loves since I was first introduced to you.
Sucks is harsh, perhaps just hard to watch - Although it could have been Great - casting, directing and budget are probably to blame, Chekov needs to stay behind the control panel of the enterprise, Mr Defoe should have played the part in Goblin makeup. Elvis should not have left the building in this one. Thinking CW for a moment pop in Tom Welling and John Schneider in the same roles and it might have been better. Cast the Winchesters as the rest of the police force and we are set.
While it was nice to see some of my favorite characters come to life this didn’t really come off as a feature that would ever be movie theater worthy. It was more along the lines of the Made for TV movies of the early 80’s.
In short - enjoyable, but could have been so much more. My movie watching companions who were Odd Thomas newbies found it not unpalatable to watch with some interesting notes and even a few tugs at the heart strings - however it didn’t have a movie feel to it. This would make a wonderful TV show to fill the downtime between when Pretty Little Liars is on hiatus.
