more than meets the eye

So there’s some type of fish that returns to its home just before it dies (sorry, I don’t feel like doing the research to find out which fish exactly does that). In an abnormaly similar situation, I saw the free midnight showing of Transformers: the Movie last night. This was a movie I haven’t seen since I was 10 and I almost died halfway through it. To keep with the theme (reliving embarrassing old memories), I have added the pics section. Prepare yourselves … this update is massive. Two new friends cards are up, and the original 10 cards from version 1.0 are up as well. L8r.

THREE YEARS LATER: Probably the closest thing to a cult event I’ve ever been a part of. People brought Transformers action figures, wore Transformers shirts, one guy even was dressed up like an Autobot. I don’t know if I was ever in love with the film as a kid, but I definitely remember liking it a lot, so I had to see it again when it was advertised.

I showed up at Grafton-Stovall, the on-campus theatre at JMU with my girlfriend, Sarah (who I believe I forced to attend) and instantly ran right into an old classmate from high school. He was several years younger than me, and a fellow trumpet player in the marching band and had changed quite a bit (I guess people do that between the ages of 15 and 20).

Unfortunately, his changes were all physical as he was just as weird as ever and I spent some time arranging not to sit near him. Then I found myself getting more and more bored as the movie seemed to continue on forever. Some things are better left as memories.

By the way, 90% of salmon return to the place where they were born to reproduce and then die.
