My Mind Heist

There are two movies I am looking forward to most in 2010. The first is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, but my excitement for Inception is miles ahead of the first half of the final Potter movie.

Since Christopher Nolan finished work on The Dark Knight I have been patiently waiting to see what he would do next and while the details for this movie were slow to emerge last summer I was excited at the prospect of something. Now that trailers and plot summaries are released I’m full throttle looking forward to this.

As if I needed more convincing, the soundtrack is being scored by Hans Zimmer, who is one half of the dynamic duo that has done Nolan’s two previous Batman films.

If I don’t put this link somewhere I’ll forget it. This is the from Zack Hemsey who composed, recorded, and mixed the song used in the third Inception trailer. It’s amazing and if it’s an indication as to what the full soundtrack will sound like then this movie will be even more incredible.

My Half Steps to Half Hundred

Not going camping on May Long weekend really impacts this Tube Steak Challenge. In fact I didn’t have a hot dog in all of May, and with my July 1 deadline looming I am at risk for not making 52 hot dogs in a year. Thankfully to the move to the house hot dogs and buns were purchased and helped add to my count by 7.5 to bring the total up to 45.5.

It was a legitimate .5 as Jenna was unable to finish her one hot dog. Until I have a proper tradesman come out to the house to add a line from the gas meter in the basement up to the deck our BBQ is off limits and the quality of the hot dogs will decrease significantly.

With two weeks to go I have to eat 6.5 hot dogs, the race is on!
