Gonna go back in time

It's official:

Back To the Future is my favorite movie of all time.

I just finished watching it on HBO, and I realized that no matter how many times I see it, I still feel all the same emotions exactly the way I remember the first time I saw it.

Another Post, Another Toast

I eat toast in the morning. Sometimes I eat Cheerios. Grocery shopping sucks. Just seems like I have to do it too often.

I got some hot new music recently thanks to Chadwick (not to slight Dave, who made me a mix that I have yet to listen to).

At the top of the list of recent albums are:

Metric: Grow Up and Blow Away
Chromeo: Fancy Footwork
Broken Social Scene: You Forgot It In People
The Blow: Paper Television
Wolf Parade: At Mount Zoomer
Maps & Atlases: Trees, Swallows, Houses

I'd recommend any of these to anyone that I thought would like them.

Another recommendation is the amazing HBO crime drama The Wire. The show is absolutely phenomenal. I'm through 3+ seasons now and Christ! If you haven't seen this yet, move it to the top of your list.

Well I want to say how little i can think of to write right write right write right write right write right now. I just though about Light Bright. What a great toy. I always made a clown.

What to say

Not much. The people in my research group are nice, but i get the feeling that we won't be hanging out very much outside the lab. I did make some friends today in another group.

Have you ever seen The Wire? Great HBO show about Baltimore crime. You need to see it. All of it. From the beginning. I can't recommend anything more right now. I'm almost through the 3rd season. It's awesome television.

Let's go Kobe!

I've been in Indiana a few days now

This state is HOT! And in so many ways. I don't think the temperature has been below 90 once yet, and the humidity has been insane. Wednesday, as my dad and I were about to unload the trailer, the skies opened up, and torrential downpours and thunderstorms began. After about 30 minutes of hoping it would stop, we decided to venture out for some food. We were headed to the one place I know downtown from my previous visit, but the entire road was flooded. It was hilarious and terrifying all at once. I mean there was like a good foot of water on the road in front of Nick's.

Fastforward to last night. I'm at Nick's watching baseball and the next thing I know I'm in a conversation with this old man who was telling me things like Cleopatra overdosed on Asp venom. "She was used to cobra venom," he said, "but she couldn't handle the asp venom." The guy was, well I can't say nuts, but possibly one of the most interesting people I've ever met. He talked for a while and I just listened. Fascinating.

People in this state are very friendly in general. It's not like back east where so many people always seem ready to fight or yell "Fuck You!" at some one. I don't know. It's an interesting place.

Last night I had a dream that me and John were in a Spring-Break-home-game version of American Gladiators and we were doing the Eliminator. Davitt may have also been in it but he wasn't a factor in the outcome. John won by nose. Or actually I think it was an elbow. Then I woke up.

I miss everyone back home, but think I'm going to like it here, once I meet some people. I start work tomorrow. I have to go do some reading now and watch the game.

Peace
