Fun Sound Pictures Happy for You!

A big movie opens this weekend that tells the story of a boy wizard growing up learning to harness his powers. Joaquin Phoenix is Johnny Cash in Walk the Line. Not a lot of people know that the reason Johnny Cash became a successful country artist was because he was a level eight warlock. His famous song "Ring of Fire" is about the time he was surrounded by five dragons and managed to slay them all with his magic guitar and the power of rock. This movie is going to be awesome.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire I heard there's also some magic. The magic of when a young Hermione first begins to experiment with herself alone in her room (with her magic wand if you know what I'm saying--I'm going to prison). There's also the wonder of a newly pubescent Ron who disovers you don't need magic spells when you have Roofies (look for the spin-off film Ron Weasley and the Chalice of Date Rape coming in 2008). And, finally, the entire film franchise is turned on its head when Harry reveals to Dumbledore, in a very Airplane-esque manner, that he does, indeed, like gladiator movies.

My recommendation is, if you're going to see one new movie this weekend, make it Harry Potter simply because Walk the Line is like the film Ray except Johnny Cash wasn't blind or black or a transvestite. You can rent Ray and turn up the contrast on your TV and it'll be exactly like watching Walk the Line.

Interesting dream of the day:
So, the other day, I had a dream I could fly. I have these dreams semi-frequently and have had them since I was a child. Anyway, in my dream it always seems so easy to do. I just point my fist in the air and jump and there I go. Well, when I was younger, when I would have these dreams (and I'm talking mid-teens, not even six or seven), I would actually try what I was doing in my dream when I woke up. Needless to say, it never worked. Or did it?

Judging by the comments on your dating advice post, it seems you are gaining fans. When are you going to write another offensive entry to scare them all away?
