    Saw Iron Man 3 yesterday. Iron Man 2 was mediocre and a mess (and still is) but Iron Man 3 was definitely an improvement; it was a lot more straightforward and didn't mess around with several different plots.

    Received this text over the weekend:

    "Hello. Mahalia is doing great. Thought I was getting a sweet, sight-impaired puppy. Did not know I was getting a one-eyed terrorist."

    I would love to do a video that is connected to such a glorious campaign. I have been meaning to, but I have had no muse and the megamixes usually come first. I do not want to say that they are more important than the campaign, but they are important videos for my channel.

    The song choices sound good. I will have to check the copyright and see what I can do...

    Just arrived in Idaho Falls after 30 hours of driving from Michigan across 3 days, to begin my zoo internship on Wednesday.

    SE Michigan - Urban or suburban

    SW Michigan - farms

    Indiana - I was there for too short of a time to care.

    Illinois - More farms

    Iowa - More farms [face_waiting]

    Nebraska - You're barely a state, just nothingness upon nothingness for an incredibly long period of time :mad:I didn't even see a "Welcome to Nebraska" sign. Just "Welcome to Omaha." Probably because that's the only thing worth mentioning... That there is indeed a city lost somewhere in the void.

    [IMG]

    I want to know who owns the incredibly nice single homes on their own private lakes out in the middle of nowhere. Really nice houses.... but like a 50 mile trip just to get groceries.

    Wyoming - Mountains, cows everywhere, and herds of pronghorns. Exciting, but you have a population of 10 people.

    A pronghorn. We've got whitetail deer in Michigan, and you wouldn't think that such a similar thing would be that exotic to me, but it is.

    [IMG]'

    Idaho - Really lovely terrain, things start to look green again after everything in Wyoming being brown. You have the lamest of all welcome signs for any state that I've ever seen. Wyoming's was badass. Yours looks like a sign informing me that there is a McDonalds and a Shell gas station off exit 36.

    [IMG]

    And I saw a sign for the Potato Museum on my way here.... I must go. I don't want to. I have to. You can't drive across country to Idaho and NOT go to the Potato Museum.

    Yes, I loved how it was definitely more straightforward, but it also had a lot of twists too!
    I also liked how Pepper's role was expanded, but I expected a bit more from Don Cheadle's character (brilliant actor, by the way). At least his suit got a lot of action....

    Certainly a much different experience than I had driving across Wyoming - but that was from Cheyenne to Sheridan on I-25. I came to the conclusion that the state should be used as a national landfill. I'll have to check out the western part of it.

    I went from Cheyenne across to Rocky Springs and into Idaho across I-80. The Eastern part was no different than Nebraska, since the environment doesn't just abruptly change at the border. The western part was all hills and mountains, roaming animals (deer, pronghorn and free range cattle). Rocky Springs was a fairly large city out in the middle of nowhere and looked awesome at night.

    Yikes. I just saw this, apparently this happened yesterday at Bagram Airbase, Afghanistan. This was captured on the dashcam of a vehicle waiting at the airport.

    It's a 747-400 freighter and apparently the military vehicles it was carrying broke loose and rolled to the tail, pitching the nose up and stalling it. There were 7 aboard, and all lost their lives. It looks like they had plenty time to see the end coming and think about it too... doesn't bear thinking about. And that's my mood killed for today... R.I.P.

    Saw Iron Sky on the Movie Network. Not the best movie, fun though, and a bloody great Soundtrack.

    Not sure if you can get it where you are, but the brand "Azotea" is probably the best. They're sustainable blah blah blah, but what I like about them is that their company does a LOT to help out the local people. Actually, any brand you buy that says it's from the Highlands/Antigua area is awesome. And tastes awesome. The more lowland-area ones are more industrialized and tend to treat their worker like crap. Plus they're the ones responsible for all the slash-and-burning that's ruining the rainforest, and that soil is crap to grow coffee on anyway. The Highlands/Antigua-based companies are growing on the volcanic soil which is a heck of a lot better, plus they get their coffee from more small-time local farmers who aren't throwing a ton of pesticides onto their crops and overworking their employees.

    *steps down from the Guatemalan coffee soapbox*

    For things like this, its not what you know, its who.;)

    ***

    And if Azotea ships internationally, I can get it.
    One of my clients owns a coffee shop and she orders from around the world.

    Will ask her this weekend...

    I can't upload the pics at the moment (I might do it next week when I've also been to the Giant's Causeway), but let me tell you this: it rocked.
