Day 13

Thought it would make for a nice shot...

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Day 12

If my OFTA brothers are reading this... my choice for Best Picture and probably Best Director for the past year. I'd probably say Best in Cinematography too but that may be toss-up with a few other movies...

I'm still keeping up with my 365 Project... Almost forgot about it today... oh well

I really am enjoying the 3rd season of Chuck though. Its really entertaining TV!

Day 11

Finally received the OFTA nomination ballot. OFTA stands for Online Film and Television Association. I was wondering if I was gonna be a member of the org, before the Oscars because I wasn't hearing anything from them. But when I received the ballot, I knew I was in.

Just a few more movies to watch... I'm probably gonna see the Road tonight.

She's probably having a good dream...

Day 7

The famous fish sauce from Vung Tao here in Downtown San Jose. It tasted good, not that salty. No, my glasses weren't placed there to measure the size of the serving.

Apologies for the flash... tried to hide it, but didn't work...

Day 5

One of the few cars that came in over the holidays... not sure whether this one was your garden variety accidents or because of a DUI...

I love my IPhone, but the built-in camera is not my favorite. I'll probably bring my Canon from here on...

Day 4

My desk full of clutter...

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Over the weekend I saw a couple of good movies that might contend for the Oscars: Up in the air and the Lovely Bones. I haven't read the books yet, but I liked Up in the air better than Lovely Bones. The effects on the Lovely Bones though are top-notch, until I remembered that Peter Jackson was the director and then thought to myself, no wonder. He had the strength of WETA to do the FX.

Lovely Bones was good but not great. Good story, great acting by Stanley Tucci, who might win the supporting actor award if he wasn't going up against Christoph Waltz.

Up in the air was a breath of fresh air. Despite the negativity of the topic of getting fired, the redeemable aspects of Clooney's, as well as Anna Kendrick's character sure rises to the top. I think Kendrick might get the supporting actress nod at the Globes. She was better than Vera's in the movie. Anyway...

My top 2 films so far are the Hurt Locker and Up in the air. I haven't seen Invictus yet, and I think thats the only other notable movie worth watching that is in the hunt come nomination day.
Day 3

Slowly losing air... probably need to lighten up the lighting...

A new year... a new blog for me...

I'll be using this as a photo blog and will be getting involved with Project 365. I'll make it a point to take a picture of anything everyday for the year and upload to this blog... That is my guarantee...

Spent the day with my sister and my 45 day old niece... My niece is a cutiepie..
