the drunk bartender says what?

friday night. coachlite. heather's laswt night on the town as a chestertonian...
the night went well. pretty big turn out. quite a few people i knew from stories but not by face.

stories exchanged amongst friends and new people i have met. heather, rightfully so, had a good amount to drink. all night, i went to the same (the only) bartender and got the exact same drinks. after the 2nd time i went there, he knew my order. he stopped asking the name or the drinks. he just went to the card directly next to the register and wrote down our most recent o'=rder.
this was the case all night until we went to cash out and found out....and i quote: "i don't have your card...i must have given it to someone else"

WHAT?!? we're leaving the fucking country in 1.5 days and you gave our fucking credit card to a stranger?????
so we then found that kourtney's card was still there and are hoping above hope that she has ours......otherwise, vacation not ruined, but nicely fuct by 1/2 drunk bartender that should not have gotten any tip at all and quite possibly, if i see him again, a swift kick to the nuts.

fingers crossed. foot ready. we'll find out tomorrow when kourtnet gets her voice mail if she has our card.

i switched to blogger to avoid tech problems

i sure did try to write this blog 8 hours ago, but blogger was down......

today = boring as shit. i had to re-write the webpage i wrote in ie6. what does that mean? it means ie7, firefox, safari...every browser ever looks fine on my website, but when i view it in ie6......vomit. horray duel css files?

Wii. also known as lock the fuck up. i would say that the last 5 times i have played madden on wii, 2 of the 5 times, it has locked up. not just locked up, but it locks up when i am saving my game just after beating the crap out of my opponent. it never seeems to do so when i lose. only when i win.

i'm not saying that i wouldn't be able to beat this team again, it's just......well....i already fucking beat them.......

make dinner......not discard it and make it again......i bet it's not as appealing the second time around.....fuck you wii. save my fucking game.....i...fuck. just save my game.

that's it. pretty much, fuck technology. it's almost 2009....2009!!!!!. fuck people. flying cars, robot people, self cleaning kitchens....we've let the past down. 120%. fuck you present and fuck you future. i doubt you will even meqasure up to my expectations.

ireleand in 3.5 days. suck it.

I was tied to a chair and he had a baseball bat. Pissing him off was the right thing to do

welcome to the new blog. i hope it's better than the god awful myspace blog interface.

so we decided to go see Max Payne last night. rotten tomatoes gave it a 21% which is really low. virtually every rating rotten tomatoes gives is pretty accurate. this disappointed me because i was really looking forward to max payne. i read a bunch of the reviews and the general consensus was that the movie didn't make any sense and was poorly done. after reading the reviews, i chalked up most of the negative ones to people that have no clue that max payne is based off of a video game or have never played it.

i am here to tell you they are wrong and possibly retarded. heather hasn't played the games, but seeing as she's not retarded, she followed along just fine in the movie. this movie was about as hard to follow as the yellow brick road. if you weren't paying attention you ended up wandering off into a corn field and making a new soul-less friend, but for the most part, the path was laid out directly in front of you.

the movie was a little slow. that one i agree on. for max payne, the first half of the movie had very little shooting. over all i think the movie was well done. the sets were very well done compared to the game. marky mark did a pretty good job as max payne. they could have casted mona a little better though.

overall i would say it's a definite go see. there were a few things missing that i would have liked to have seen:
1. drug induced endless hallway / blood trail scene
2. non stop popping of pain killers (though that would require more violence throughout the movie to make sense)
3. most importantly, there was no voice over of his inner monologue. that's one of the most important parts of the game, so it should have been in the movie.

the movie goers will miss out on clever voice over thoughts like:
- "Sooner or later it was going to catch up with you. You'd find that lady luck was a hooker and you were fresh out of cash"
- "It was all over. The final shots were an exclamation mark to all of it. I pulled my finger off the trigger."
- "Collecting evidence had gotten old a few hundred bullets back. I was already so far beyond the point of no return I couldn't remember what it had looked like when I had passed it."

i'm also putting money down on there being a sequel considering the main boss was not killed. but i guess that's why they had two games too.
