Top 5 Movies of 2005

After reading Roger Ebert’s Top 10 Movies of 2005, I thought I would chime in with my Top 5, and oddly enough, I actually agree with some of his choices. So, without further ado, here are my top 5 choices for 2005

  1. Crash
    This, by far was the best movie of 2005.  Everything from the visuals, to the music, to the subject matter, everything about this movie was a pure joy. It had me holding my breath during so many scenes, and I think it helped communicate the dynamic, strained, and often times violent race relationships here in Los Angeles.The

Dynamic RSS Feeds

Because I have been harrowing away on another application, I’ve been working out some different things.

So, I have added Dynamic RSS feeds to the site.

In order to access a sections RSS feed, just replace the word “Content” with “feed” (sans quotes, of course).

The main news feed is http://alterform.com/feed/ , but the other ones are http://alterform.com/feed/Art/ and http://alterform.com/feed/Art/Digital, etc etc.

They’re also prettier than your standard RSS feed, so click the links and check them out :)

We’re Back!

I just wanted to drop everyone a line to say that we got back in today from the honeymoon. We had an amazing time, and we will be putting honeymoon pictures, as well as wedding pictures up very soon on our website :)

Today Is The Day!

As I write this from the Apple store in Newport Beach, I am waiting to board the boat for the wedding. In just a few short hours I will be a married man.
:D I am seriously ecstatic.
Thanks to everyone who is coming and everyone who cant, but wants to.
We’e really looking forward to it.

Okay, off to browse for more crap to burn money on!…

Well I’ll give him credit

He actually apologized. Maybe it’s caving to the pressure of public perception, but I doubt it.…

What the freak is Pat Robertson doing?

Perhaps this was taken out of context, and perhaps there is more to the story, but I am quite appalled that any Christian figure would be calling for someone to be assasinated.
I am not against assasination on principle. I think there are times when it could be necessary to stop greater evils from taking place.
However, that is a government official’s job to decide, NOT an evangelist’s.

I am hard-pressed to imagine the Apostle Paul calling for Nero’s assasination. If I remember correctly, Pauls instructions were quite a bit different.…

Out with the poo, in with the new

I’ve been building my own computers for the last 5 years, and in that time, I’ve gone through about 4 computers.
And although I am A+ Certified, and I can assemble the hardware okay, it’s a rather frustrating process, and eventually, I end up messing SOMETHING up, which requires either a fresh install, fresh hardware, or something else.

As of today, I am done with all of that. Thanks to a VERY awesome friend who is too good to me, I have a new computer on the way.

This is my new machine-y.

Why Dell? A couple of reasons, …

Harry Potters Haters

Harry Potter Is Evil?
Okay, I know to some I seem some hardcore anti-everything fightin’ fundie, but I do not follow the party line on everything.

Personally, I think the Harry Potter movies are wonderful and amazingly imaginative, and I think the overall franchise is wonderful. It kind of bothers me that the new Pope is now coming out against it.

I truly dont see the moral difference between Harry Potter and The Lord Of The Rings (written by Tolkien, a Catholic), or even The Narnia series (written by CS Lewis, an Anglican and theologian extraordinaire).

I guess the charge …

Thank you’s and notices

Thanks to Unmatched Style for the mention, and the kind words :) Also thanks to all the support from everyone who’s been kind enough offer some solid advice and help.

Now, I need to make an announcement of sorts:

  • To all the of the people who feel that insulting me, insulting my fiance, insulting my site are going to hurt my feelings, you’re way off. To be honest, if your brain has been developmentally stunted to the point to where your last refuge is petty name calling, then my only response is giggling like a mad man.
