A Great Wreck

I don't post about too many movies on my blog before I go see them. Once in awhile though, I make an exception, and today is one of those exceptions. Usually my exception are for Pixar films, and while this movie is not a Pixar film, some of the same talent is behind it. The movie is called Wreck it Ralph, and it's about a video game. On the surface this seems like a rather uninspired plot, but this movie promises to be so much more than what it seems. Before I continue, you should watch a trailer if you haven't already.

I love movies like this where a "Bad Guy" becomes the good guy, MegaMind is probably my favorite movie like this. Any story about redemption, will almost certainly have my attention. And the fact that so many classic video game characters are making cameos in the film is just the icing on the cake. :)

These are not the only reasons I am excited for the movie though. A few weeks ago I found out that Owl City was doing a song for the film. That news in and of itself was enough to get me excited, but today I discovered he has just released a music video for the song. As Disney's marketing department was almost certainly hoping, it has made me even more excited for the movie than I was before, and I am doing my part to spread the news. :)

I will most certainly be going to see this one in the theater, and if you are a fan of video games, or even just Disney films in general, you won't want to miss this one either. :)

Observations of a Grocery Store Checker

I have random thoughts at work sometimes. I decided to collect a few of them for a blog post.

Here they are.

A smash and the sound of little feet running for dear life are not a sound one likes to hear.

Cute little old ladies cease being cute when they dislike something's price.

The Express Lane: For people with full carts who are just too impatient to wait their turn.

Grocery stores are a very popular place to bring gravely ill children. "Clean-Up in aisle 7!"

Bratty children get all the candy their screaming little heart desires. Good little children get squat.

Want to witness grown-ups throwing tantrums? Run a massive one-day only sale and run out of 24 packs of toilet paper. Wait for the late-comers...

I believe there may be a cult around here somewhere that doesn't allow their members to shower or use deodorant. That's the only logical explanation for some of the gut-wrenching smells I have to endure. They wouldn't go out in public like that on purpose would they?

Food Stamps are such a blessing! Now all the poor people won't ever run out of pop and candy!

This job helps one learn self control. For example, I have learned how to NOT punch angry idiots with filthy mouths square in the face! Yay, Me! :D

One extremely nice, kind, considerate, empathetic customer, right after a nasty, rude, thoughtless, mean customer, completely makes up for how stressed out that horrible beast of a person made you feel. Yay, humanity! :D

U Spel bad 4

It's that time again! Time to take a look at how the people of the internet decided to fail humanity once again.

Read on and feel suoperior know that you wouldn't never ever make a mistank like these.

Most of the intended words have been capitalized in bold, otherwise you'd never know what they had tried to spell.


That is so not how you spell that. DUH.

A whooo

That's really what you think a wolf sounds like?

Of corse

OF COURSE you do.


This is just sad. (HAWAIIAN)


This may just be sadder. (MYTHICAL)


I know I won't be the FIRST to tell you, but your spelling is awful.


It is just SCARY how many times I have seen this misspelled this way. Or maybe it's not ever misspelled. Maybe they are just referring to people who are covered in scars...


I don't know how to REPLY to that...

I am not a graphics atrist!

Clearly you are not a spellings atrist, either...


I know what you are thinking, and you are wrong. This was in response to an engagement announcement.


Just because people pronounce HAVE wrong, doesn't mean you need to spell it wrong too.


You think you can insult someone when you spell STUPID like that? I'd call you stupid as well, but I think I just feel sorry for you.


WHOOPS, I think you missed the school bus. Every. Single. Day. Of. Your. Life.


Are you JEALOUS of my superior spelling skills? Yeah, didn't think so. Your IQ would have to be a lot higher for you to understand why you should be.


One might argue that UBER isn't even a word, at least, not in English, but even if it were, you managed to mess it up.


You are definitely not my FAVORITE speller.


Can you misspell the onomatopoeia for laughter? Apparently yes.


"Wow. Your spelling is GREAT!" he said, his voice dripping with sarcasm.


This one even I wasn't sure of. In the context of the post, it may have been SLEEVE. But I can not be sure. It was a long post, with many misspellings, run-on sentences, and almost no punctuation. Noah Webster would have broken down and wept at the sight of it.


And with one horrifying mistake, his stupidity broke the entire internet. (ENOUGH)
