Jason Bourne may never stop running!

Last night I saw "The Bourne Ultimatum" staring Matt Damon.
Here's is my review of "The Bourne Ultimatum"

I thought Bourne Ulitimatum had a good story. It is full of action and is a good 3rd movie to the trilogy.
My negative parts to the movie are stronger than postive notes.

The beginning of the movie was slow. Not much going on in the beginning except a lot of scrambled memories of Jason Bourne.

The other thing I didn't care for was the camera in the movie.
In the action scenes the camera was all over the place.
You really couldn't tell what was going on in any of the action scenes. The crazy camera made it hard to concentrate or to know what was happening.

Overall I feel that you don't have to see this movie in the theatre. You can wait for it on DVD.
The Bourne Identity was a great movie.
I feel that there never had to be a sequal to Bourne Identity.
If your a Bourne Fan then I recommend seeing it.

I give "The Bourne Ultimatum 3 out of 5 Stars.

I got kicked by The Shins!

On February 9, 2007, I went to the Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee to see The Shins. I went with my best friend and his girlfriend and his sister. We got there early so we could get a good spot like i always try to do. We were right in front. Poor people who tried to see behind me. I need to take advantage of my height whenever I can.
At the last 3 concerts I've been too, I've been hit on by gay men. So my friend before the concert said that it would be funny if it happened again. So while we're waiting, some random guy(named Victor) came up to me and asked how i was doing. I said good, and you? He said I look like Tony Robbins,who is a famous motivational speaker.

Victor said then said that I speak with a lot of confidence and I was a nice guy. Part of me was thinking, here we go again,haha. Here my friends are laughing cause they think that he is hitting on me and i'm just being nice like I always am. So he then says he got to meet the band and he got their autograph. I said Congrats and then he's says, "You seem like a nice guy and your probably a bigger fan so here's their autograph". I told him, I would feel bad accepting it and then he said "No problem, not the biggest Shin fan". So I got The Shins autograph from him. I offered him to hang out cause I thought he was by himself, but he said he was with a friend. Thanks Victor for the autographed poster of The Shins.
After the concert, a local radio station (FM 102/1 Independent/Alternative Radio) was handing out little cards for The Kooks (a band from England that I'm a fan of). They said, "The Kooks are coming. Don't know if they meant Chicago or Milwaukee. Hopefully Milwaukee cause I would love to see them live in Milwaukee instead of seeing them in Chicago.

Marquette needs to dig deeper in their wallets and pull out a jumpshot

Yesterday I was disappointed to see the Marquette Golden Eagles lose to in state rival Wisconsin Badgers 70-66. Marquette had a hard time stopping Alando Tucker. Tucker finished with 28 points and 5 rebounds. I felt that if Marquette could stop Alando Tucker, they could beat the Badgers. I was really disappointed in the poor outside shooting by Marquette. Marquette only went 3-18 from 3 point land. Marquette only shot 39% from the field. I have to give credit to the Badgers defense. They didn't really allow Marquette to have a lot of open and easy shots. I was also disappointed in the performance of future NBA player for Marquette, Dominic James.
Dominic James was 2-7 for 3 point land, can't really count 1 of those 3 pointers because it was a last second effort to make the score closer.
Being at the game was a great experience. I love the energy of a sold out home Marquette game. I did unfortunatley hear Wisconsin Badger chants as well.

Props to a certain Badger fan who was pimped out in his Badger pimp suit.
As far as for my other Marquette friend. I guess we'll have to wait till next year or the NCAA tournament.

It's a big world!

This is something from the heart.
Around October, I was checking my myspace and I saw a friend request from a girl named Faye from Birmingham, England. If you are a myspace user, you are probably like me who is used to what I call "Fembots" on myspace. "Fembots" are those fake girls and women who advertise their webcamera's, website's, and other stuff. These "Fembots" ask to be your friend on myspace and I usually deny their request.
Anyway, I looked at her profile and it seemed that it was a real person who sent the request, not a "Fembot" so I decided to add her as a friend and add a comment to her page basically saying,
Thankyou for the add, hope everything is well, take care.
About 3 weeks later, she sent me a message saying hello and asking how i was doing?
After that we were sending myspace messages for a while.
I decided to ask her if she has a messanger account because myspace is an unrelieable website. For those of you who have myspace. You know what I'm talking about.
I like the creative part of myspace and the concept but it takes forever to log on and at times has problems loading.
Anyway, she did have a messanger account and we've been chatting for about a month now.

I'm just extremely thankful for meeting Faye. She is "mint". I guess the saddest part is that she is not here or I'm not there. I wish I could see a concert with her, hang out, and most of all see and talk to her in person.
No matter what path we take in life and if I never get the chance to meet her in person, I will always care about her and continue to wish the absolute best for her (just as I do with all of my friends)
I feel very blessed and thankful that I chat with her.

If you read this Faye:
Thank you very much
