Trailers and Revenge of the Vindaloo

“The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle” is selling like hot cakes, and so far I’ve only encountered one negative review.  It’s a great one, too, right on Amazon.com.  It’s so negative, in fact, that it almost seems like someone threw it in there just to be contrary, which is cool by me.  I don’t need my artwork to be a universal touchstone for all mankind.  I’m usually happy if my friends like it.

The fact that there are so many good reviews is awesome, and I’m unspeakably happy that as many people are enjoying it.

I finally went to see Toy Story 3 last weekend.  Good stuff, what with the animation, toy jokes, and deeply heart-felt sentiment.  I could definitely feel Pixar pushing for that “Best Picture” Oscar.  While we were there, one of my friends said that she wasn’t looking forward to any films coming out soon.  To this I scoffed pfah! If anyone else is having a similar condition, allow me to enlighten you.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World – August 13 – sure it’s Michael Sera playing Michael Sera, but if playing the same person works for Tom Cruise, it can work for anyone.

Easy A – September 17 – a “Scarlet Letter”-inspired, satire-ridden story about sexuality in an American high school, starring Emma Stone from “Superbad.”

Red – October 15 – action/comedy following in the wake of the Losers/A-Team/Expendables, this one’s got four great actors playing four great ex-CIA operatives trying to stay alive.

Due Date – November 5 – a road trip movie from the director of The Hangover, it’s a comedy about trying to get home in time.  Time-tested formula, plus funny actors = funny movie.  Simple!

Tron Legacy – December 17 – yup.

Now you have something to look forward to every month from here to Christmas.

Note:  I didn’t forget about Harry Potter (Part 1).  I just figure everyone’s looking forward to that.

And now, it’s with great sadness that I tell you that Indian food and I have broken up.  It was a tumultuous relationship from the start, and my dinner before Toy Story 3 sealed it.  The first time I had Indian food (at the behest of Pat), I had to wait an hour and a half for the food.  Worse was that I brought a friend with me and he wouldn’t stop complaining about the lateness.  It’s bad when someone invites you to dinner and things don’t go well, but when you bring a guest who complains about it, well… it makes you wish you were elsewhere.

The second time I had Indian food, I had to wait two hours for the dinner because the restaurant was apparently out of rice.  The third time was a buffet that was okay but slightly dubious.  The fourth and final time turned out to be the most expensive meal my toilet ever ate.  All of these stories are extremely unfortunate because Indian food is fantastic.

Alas, we need to call it quits.  Indian food, it’s not you.  It’s me.

  1. Perhaps you should have washed it down with a Squishee!

  2. I’m sorry to hear of the break up. If you change your mind, I suggest doing as Sarah and I do and only cooking our own Indian, at least then we have control over how long it takes.

  3. Indian food is done when it damn well wants to be done, so I’m not sure what Pat’s talking about. I’ve never seen an accurate timetable for an Indian dish and whenever we make it, it’s a late dinner.

    Regarding the bad review, there’s only so much you or anyone can take from someone who spells genre, “genera.” Right? Anyway, those who commented on Amazon saved their best praise for the illustrations, which is pretty cool. Plus, now you get to search for your own name on Amazon! Rad.

  4. TRON!

    Dad.
    Jason.
    Been a long time.
    You have no idea.

    GOOSE BUMPS!
