So I finally saw Thor this morning and wow! I'll write a lengthy review later but I will say now that it was really fun and much better than I expected.

Does anyone use Sidereel? They seem to have a programmable calendar to follow your TV shows that makes me think of the pogdesign calendar that I use for this purpose but it also has a phone app (iphone only right now so I haven't jumped on and tried it yet) that seems like a handy thing to have on the go.

I thought this was a pretty neat site for those looking for a way to archive your tweets and have them displayed in a neat timeline. I give you Memolane (short for Memory lane I imagine) where besides twitter or facebook you can even connect photo sites, video sites, social check-in sites and rss feeds to have displayed for your visual needs. The only downside on the twitter part is that it seems to have the same problem all of these sites has is the limit twitter puts to the last 3,000 tweets you've done from the moment you first connect your account.

I don't know if I've asked this before on here but has anyone tried purchasing refurbished technology? I've always steered away from it and preferred to just go new but lately I've been having thoughts that anything that was wrong with the tech would be fixed before they sell it and most of the time they come with a warranty/guarantee of some kind.

 Maybe it's my natural reflex when something gets pushed on me with too much excess but I am having trouble staying positive about the upcoming Thor movie.  I'm a fan of Chris Hemsworth and I think he looks the part, but I can't help but think he doesn't sound right especially without some "thou" and "art" speech that were once classic trademarks of the character.  And some of the fight sequences in the trailers don't feel Thor-like to me.  There are also apparently some aspects of the character that aren't being used.  I love Kat Dennings but her role looks really annoying in the trailers .. I guess I'll just have to see it next weekend and see for myself.

I finally saw Inception this weekend for the first time this weekend.  Now I understand why it did gangbusters in the box office, and I don't know if i expected it not to be great because Christopher Nolan is an AMAZING director.  How he continues to create such unique masterpieces is so astounding.  I remember being wowed by Memento, then getting wowed by Dark Knight, and now Inception, all in different ways.  The complex dream in a dream in a dream into limbo maze might take some people out of the story and was a little confusing at the moment but once you get a chance to examine it, it all fits.  And then the ending that leaves it to the viewer's interpretation .. just brilliant.  Now the fact that Nolan didn't get a director's nom and the movie didn't win best picture really supports my decision to stop caring about the Oscars.

Saw the movie thanks to Netflix, and now I want to buy the Blu-Ray and watch it in glorious HD along with the special features.  Sent the disc back today and hoping to get the next one, Yogi Bear on Wed.
