Well, I know it's been a while since any of you heard from me, but I'm back (at least temporarily). I'll be pretty busy for the next couple of weeks until I am able to finish up some projects and come up for air. Why this noise out of radio silence? Because of a movie I just saw.

I just finished watching Radio, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. Not only is it an incredible acting job, but I believe it is the best movie I've seen in quite a while. Now, I don't normally admit things like this, but I cried several times throughout the movie. I don't know why. Perhaps little dust mites were peeling little dust onions under my little nose (ok, my nose isn't that little). Then again, perhaps it just struck a chord in me (perhaps a C# major chord (ba-boop ksh)). For anyone who hasn't seen the movie, I *highly* recommend it. I would say that it is an excellent date movie. After all, what's a better way to a woman's heart by crying at a heart-tugging movie (did I mention that Radio was based on a true story).

I must admit that I am kind of confused. How can a movie make a large rotund man like me turn into a blubbering snot bubble? Well, I think it is partly because of how incredible the whole story is (I'm not going to say much more, because you all should run out and rent the movie darnit). It's also because of just how great of a person Radio is (at least as portrayed by Hollywood). Radio is the kind of person that all of us simply wish we could be all the time. Well, I'll shut my snot-bubbling, snortle-chinkling, portly helstinkly agrovado so the rest of you can rest easy now.

'Til then my friends.....
