Save The Green Planet was awesome!!! I don’t want to go into a lot of detail because it’s best not to know what to expect, but suffice it to say that the battle of wills between the cunning, amoral CEO and his unhinged abductor who believes him to be an alien infiltrator from Andromeda is just epic. It’s leavened with some wicked humor, but it escalates and gets progressively more and more intense and brutal and dark as the movie progresses.

If the opportunity presents itself, I can’t recommend it enough. There are some good movies coming out of Korea – Oldboy, Into The Mirror, A Tale Of Two Sisters, and Tell Me Something are all excellent. The preview for 3-Iron looked really good too…

Sunday Softball Blogging

Damn, it was hot today. Turnout was… not. We didn’t have enough players at first, so we just had batting practice. We were just about to give up when a couple more people showed up, and we played a short 5-on-5 game, which is kinda goofy. Basically, right field is foul, and the batting team has to supply their own pitcher, catcher, and first baseman. If you get any more than one person on base, you need to have “ghost runners.” Crazy.

Anyway, we won in the bottom of the fifth, and I went 4 for 5 with a run and an RBI (and the one out was a shot that was caught at the warning track). Had a really good day in the field, running all over the place and catching pretty much everything – I even had a nice over-the-shoulder catch on a ball over my head during batting practice. Gotta love that.

Then to Piper’s Pub for an incredibly messy portabello burger, and I will shortly be heading out to see Save The Green Planet at Pittsburgh Filmmakers with Rich. It’s an insane Korean movie about a guy who becomes convinced that a CEO is really a member of an alien race plotting to invade the Earth. Fun stuff.

Current Stats: 13 games, .593 BA (51-86), 8 2B, 27 runs, 15 RBI.

Whoo, Science!

Take the MIT Weblog Survey

Well, I entered that MIT weblog survey thingy. Moderately interesting, not entirely sure what purpose it serves, but click on the logo there to fill out one of your own, thus advancing Science’s ethereal march.
