Had a great weekend and even managed to get a lot of work done! I've been messing with JLex
and have found ANTLR
to be a heck of a lot more helpful for some of the grammar work I've recently took a plunge back into (ie: my little grammar checker).
I had the misfortune of seeing House of Flying Daggers
- for a good time go see this movie. It's absolutely the worst movie I've seen this year. The story drops off about 3/4 of the way through and becomes a street fight between 2 guys over a girl she wakes up after a year of them fighting and then dies *again*. Sure it's a metaphor about the eternal struggle of love or whatever but, I have to say... this particular variation of the theme is totally lame. B Rated for sure. I also think the translation was shoddy.
From what most people have been telling me, Alexander
is evidence enough that Collin Farrell and Oliver Stone are in-the-closet NAMBLA members. Nuff said, think I'll pass on that one. I had a buddy today tell me that the movie isn't so much a show as it is a tragic event in his life. An event that would rival this following Denis Leary Quote:
"Yeah, I love living in New York, man, and people who live in New York, we wear that fact like a badge right on our sleeve because we know that fact impresses everybody! "I was in Vietnam." - "So what? I live in New York!" - "Really?"
Just imagine: "So what? I saw Alexander" - "Really?" My friend mentioned possibly wearing his ticket stub on his chest as a badge of courage. He also said something like "I'm surpised traumatized viewers aren't on the streets using that as a pitch to bum change off people."
In anycase, A Life Aquatic
was great the second time through. In any event, time to get back to the grind. Time to keep plodding along with PDFBox for C#.
