In what may be my last post regarding The Dark Knight Rises, here is my review.
Eventually, The Dark Knight Rises will be released and I’ll have to find new blog topics.
Until then, I’ll keep cranking out my reviews.
Warner Bros shut down my first review. Here is the link to a version without any of the copyrighted footage.
Here are my top ten television shows of all time. I didn’t go into this with a well-defined criteria. I basically went with my gut instincts on shows which provided me with the most enjoyable tv experiences.
Before we get to the top ten, let’s cover the “not necessarily” honorable mentions. Here they are in no particular order…
The X Files
I could go on, but had to stop somewhere. Speed Racer and 24 were atop the shows on the cutting room floor. I’m not sure if that should be taken as a snub or a compliment. I’ll let you decide.
That’s enough for the also-rans. Here is my top ten.
10. Late Night/Show with David Letterman
Leading off is a man synonymous with top ten lists. I like Craig Ferguson and was a fan of Johnny. Arsenio was cool for a minute. However with them, the guests often determined whether or not I would watch. Dave has always been the main attraction for me. His approach is more mainstream now, but he still gets it and can deliver on a nightly basis.
So I read that Christopher Nolan is setting The Dark Knight Rises seven years after the events of The Dark Knight. At first I was suspicious because I assumed the new movie would be about Batman escaping the role of a fugitive. Upon closer inspection, it looks like this film is inspired by Frank Miller’s classic story The Dark Knight Returns which has me very excited.
I published my first original android application; original in the sense that I did everything from scratch. It’s called My Phone Number and it displays, as you probably guessed, the phone number. So it’s not the most original idea, but it’s free so you will get your money’s worth.
I wanted to create something interactive on the computer for my daughter. I figured Flash would be a good platform for creating a slither effect. It ended up being trickier than anticipated.
The bone tool didn’t quite cut it. The tweener class enabled me to come close to my original vision. You could say it is an homage to her baby einstein toys. The idea was to allow her to bang on the keyboard and make something happen. Simply click or press a key to see it in action.
I was listening to CNNfn as I prepared for work. Just before a commercial break, David Haffenreffer mentioned a report of a plane crashing into one of the towers. I figured that somebody in a Cessna lost control. Little did I know the true gravity of the situation.
