Return to Hellview

Well, here I a once again sitting at my home office desk writing a press release that has been a curse of mine for about 5 days. I finally get a chance to work on it, and it is due tomorrow morning. Unreal how it is for the same client as I was working on in an earlier post...imagine that! Well, I would have worked on it earlier tonight, but the Monday Night Football game was too good to pass up. Brett Favre...kudos to you. The I had to do a little video project which had me go to my parents' house to film some video for a church project. So there is my video camera downloading video to the computer, my press release up on the screen waiting to be finished, a tall glass of Diet Dr. Pepper, the camera case, a couple choice CDs for my listening pleasure and my notebook with all my awesome notes. I hate myself for doing this once again. Wow, here it is 12:41 am and it is only Tuesday morning. It is going to be a long week boys. Damn it!

A little random fun...

You Are An ENFJ

The Giver

You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed.
Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections.
Sometimes you idealize relationships too much - and end up being let down.
You find the most energy and comfort in social situations ... where you shine.

In love, you are very protective and supporting.
However, you do need to "feel special" - and it's quite easy for you to get jealous.

At work, you are a natural leader. You can help people discover their greatest potential.
You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.

How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud

Saturday Movie Review

It was a dark and stormy morning...well, ok a little cliche, but it really is dark and stormy outside. I had just sat down to feed my son some breakfast when I decided to see what movies were on demand. I just love Halloween, because FearNet starts rolling out the scary movies. As I started scrolling through the selections, I came across one called "The Catacombs." Why not?

It started out really well just because Lions Gate Films and Twisted Pictures had their bloody hands involved with this film. I admit, I'm a fan of any movie that is spawned from the depths of Lions Gate and Twisted. I'm sure Rob Zombie would throw in his Kudos for Lions Gate as well...anyways.

This movie is about this unstable gal, (aptly played by Shannyn Sossamon of Knight's Tale, 40 Days & 40 Nights, The Order fame,) who receives a postcard from her sister (portrayed by PINK...who is actually pretty believable,) to leave the States and go to Paris.

So she arrives in Paris to be greeted by the stereotypical rude French people who laugh at her and her poor attempts at French...(I dunno Lloyd, the French are Assholes,) and finally saved by her sister. We see into the mind of our heroine early on and can tell that there are some serious issues she has...seems to be an overactive imagination. (Editorial: Wonder what that would be like?!)

Along with some boys (of course,) they head through Paris off to what is said to be the best of parties. All that needs to be said, is that this party they are going to, takes place in the catacombs of Paris...essentially, the largest mass grave on earth. The movie explanation states that of the 7 million dead in the catacombs, one isn't. The cinematography in the movie is actually spectacular, and the fact that the entire movie has countless human bones, skulls, blood in it, it really adds to the creepiness of the movie.

There is whole back story about the movie's protagonist that is pretty damn scary. When the show ended, I sat there rather happy about my free selection. Pretty cool show, and creepy enough to be a great Halloween movie, so I have to give Catacombs...Three Bawls + a Cask of Amontillado.
