    PropGeek: I'm up in Colorado. I had the pleasure of meeting a few of your cohorts a at the Mountain Garrison BBQ during Ren. Fest. though! :D

    And I am going to try my hardest to get down there for Bubonicon.

    Transporter II?! Who'd athought? Very cool! Let's hope they have a novel script idea. Perhaps with some silly English kniggits. (Sorry, watching MP&THG) "I fart in your general direction."

    So, did our home boys behave themselves in the land up north?

    The script doesn't sond too bad and the preview is attached to War of the Worlds.

    They behaved themselves and Peter and I found some common ground.
    It was a blast!

    Dude, you found some common ground with Peter? We gotta talk, bro. (Just kidding Peter! Please don't eat me...) No really, Peter is a great guy. He's a hottie magnet. We've got this whole hottie thing going in Mos Alba. Whaddupwidat? I don't know, but it's spankin'!

    I haven't been back in the ocean more then 5 times since 7th grade because of those movies... I watched them all before spending 3 weeks in Hawaii, only went into the ocean on my last day there.

    Yeah, ASD has been in the works for such a long time now. Last I had read anything about it, the guy finally finished writing it in Feb, and was trying to get a studio to produce it. Of course, it's really hard to get a studio to finance a sequel that has twice the budget of the first movie when said first movie went straight to DVD. :p I heard all of the original cast will be back, minus Defoe (but including David Della Rocco :confused: =D=). Here's hoping it's as great as the first one!

    The Warriors. That movie is so cool. I love that movie. They were supposed to have been doing a remake, but I think it got shelved.

    Office SPace rules!

    I love the whole "I don't like my job, and, uh, I don't think I'm gonna go anymore." conversation. Classic.

    Aw, poor Milton. "If they take my stapler, I'll set the building on fire" I used to work with a couple of guys like that...and had a few Mr. Lumberg bosses.

    Shawshank Redemption is the greatest movie ever made. A true classic.

    Office space made me quit a job! Seriously, I saw that movie and quit the next day to open my own comic shop. Then I freaked out and got another job, but after that one I did open a comic shop!

    That's awesome! I am glad I don't work in a cube farm anymore. I don't think I could have kept my sanity otherwise.

    My favorite part of Spring Break is the skank who sings in the band. I really liked the tights with boots look she was sporting.
