Back In The Bend

After a highly successful break - another winning trip to Casino Niagara, new sunglasses, HDTivo at the house, a great first round of the tournament, filling out all sorts of applications and stuff for internships I won't get, finally getting to read The Tipping Point - it's back to school for the pre-Easter stretch. Without looking at syllabi, I have no idea what exactly I have to do between now and then, but it'll be fun to find out.

The Office part of the quad is in complete disarray, as Notre Dame has decided to re-wire Dillon, the biggest dorm on campus, not over summer, but right now. So we've got furniture moved around, although the trade-off is we get fantastic wireless throughout the dorm. Would I rather have power to everything on my desk? Probably, but we'll just have to settle.

So before we recap the weekend that was in basketball, the return of Prison Break, look at the beauty that will be Snakes On A Plane and consider that the Pirates are currently leading the Grapefruit League standings at 14-7 (I know, I know - just spring training), I'm going to finish unpacking and settling in. Enjoy your Grey's this evening, hope your brackets aren't as busted as mine and we'll get back to regularly scheduled blog posts very, very soon.

But first, for those of you unaware of this awesomeness, I'm going to give you the basic premise of my favorite summer B-level horror/survival/ass-kicking film being released this summer. For those of you who were online the last few days, I probably gleefully sent you the link to the newly released trailer, but for those of you who didn't get to see it, I proudly present to you:

Snakes On A Plane

No no, we'll get a plane...and then we'll put snakes on it....

And then we'll have Sam Jackson curse a lot. It'll be f@#

And yeah, that's the basic premise of it. That's actually all there is to it. Poisonous snakes. On a plane. And Sam Jackson kicking ass. If you think the idea sounds cheesy, or retarded, wait until you see the special effects, which can be found in the trailer, which you can find here.

(And should your reaction be "That's ridiculous. They're literally everywhere, including in that large woman's cleavage and the cat cage. The special effects are terrible, and is Sam Jackson both tasering one snake and using another as a whip?", I'd have to agree with most of your criticisms, but just give a resounding "So?")
