Movie Marathon

Last modified on January 4th, 2008

7:36pm – So John and Brennen just arrived for the Friday night nerd-a-thon. We’re debating what movies to watch right now while waiting for pizza to arrive. We have a big list of geeky movies here, some of which are on HD-DVD. Right now the short runners are:

  • The Matrix in HD
  • Dark City
  • Gladiator
  • Desperado
  • Heat
  • Ocean’s Thirteen in HD

So we’ll see how it goes. Jeff will probably show up in a bit, and I’m not sure who else. I’m guessing The Matrix will be first just to kick everything off with a bag of kick-ass. My copy of Dark City has seen better days, so I’m trying to rip it to my laptop and reburn it before putting into my HD-DVD player, since it’s rather flaky and doesn’t like scratched discs.

9:11pm Dustin just showed up and sneakily fumbled around in the kitchen putting some chips in a bowl, thinking we couldn’t hear him.

Brennen wonders why the Oracle is a chubby, smoking, aunt jemima lookin, cookie-baking bitch of a software program. Who’s the brainiac he wrote that code?

10:09pm – The Matrix just finished. We’re all totally full on pizza and pop. Saying hi to Dustin for the first time since he arrived mid stream there. Gonna take a short break and then pop in Dark City.

10:51pm – Still Dark City.. I did a quick google to see why Refus Sewell’s one eye looks a bit different, but I couldn’t find out any info. Looks sort of like the same fracture I had. A couple yawns are showing up in the weak here, so we might have to do another caffeine infusion shortly.

12:16am – Brennen just took the stinkiest poop imaginable, and the whole place just reeks. I’ve been trying to eat Nibs, but everything I eat tastes like poo right now, so I’m gonna hold off. Desperado just went into the DVD player. I’d bring my camera out, but I’m afraid it might corrode due to the fumes coming from the bathroom.

2:18am – Desperado is done.. Most of the group had to work tomorrow AM, so we called it a night.. not much of a full marathon, but it was fun nonetheless. Tomorrow I have to go get a new bank card so I can have money again and probably do some errands. Not sure what’s up tomorrow night.

    Sounds like a fun night. Speaking of movies, seems like Blu Ray will win as Warner just announced to go Blu Ray exclusive.

    Hey dude…thanks for the movie night….was alot of fun….just not long enough 😉

    Lots of good ideas for future events as well.

    Oh and this should prove my point about the window washing suds as matrix code:

    “While being chastised by his boss in the Meta Cortechs skyscraper offices, Anderson can see the dribbles of soap suds running down the window in a manner reminiscent of the opening sequence, where a green monitor displays code ‘dribbling’ down the screen.”

    (from here)

    Well maybe not prove but it at least suggests that I didn’t make it up on the couch last night ;p

    I think after watching the matrix, I’ve finally figured out why that crap stunk so much.

    The poo can’t really stink that much, for that would be impossible. Rather, you have to come to the realization that there is no poo. Once you do that, you’ll realize that it is no longer the poo that is stinking, but rather Brennen.
