I saw The Village last week. Didn't really have time to write about it though. This is M. Night Shyamalan's latest effort (and fourth that he's both written and directed). For those of you who haven't seen The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, or Signs, this one has the same sort of twistiness to it, but I won't spoil it for you. Anyway, I recommend it. It gets my seal of approval.
I thought the main chick in the movie was pretty hot, so naturally, I looked her up on IMDB. Turns out she's only hot with no makeup on like she was in the movie:
Today I saw something I've never seen before. Nor do I ever expect to see it again. It was the damndest thing. Jeff kicked a power bar, the things with multiple power outlets that you can turn on and off, and it fucking blew up.
It exploded with a fury and anger that I've never seen a power bar manifest. This was not just a spark and a black spot. This was a blinding flash of light and the plastic casing splintering and flying in all directions. Truly a sight to behold, if you're wearing the proper eye protection.
Sorry I don't have anything more exciting to tell you, but I've been working so damn much I haven't had time to do anything. I'm going to Al's party on Saturday night. That should give me some good fodder for posts.
One of my favourite bands, Chixdiggit!, is playing in Halifax tomorrow (Friday) night at Stage 9. As good as they are on record, they are even better live, so I suggest that anyone who can check them out should do just that.
As for Stage 9, I'm still trying to get a feel for it. I've only really been there once. Anyone else have a good/bad experience there?
Update! 8/14 17:27
Anyone who missed this one should be sorry. This was probably the best show I've attended all year. It was the non-stop rockfest that I've come to expect from Chixdiggit. The sheer energy that these guys put out on stage could power a small city, I'm sure of it. "Let's hear it for Kevin on guitar! Let's hear it for the audience, come on audience! Let's hear it for Halifax." Every song is a love song and you can tell they mean every word.
But the best news was that they announced that Chixdiggit will be coming out with a new album and that it'll hopefully be in stores by the spring.
