Next Week's No Good for Me ... The Jonas Brothers Are in Town

by Rainier on Sept. 22, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

We're off to a good start for the week, Monday's over with, so one down, four more days to go until the weekend.

Today was supposed to be scorching hot, but as usual the weather report wasn't very accurate, and while it was quite warm, it wasn't the 95° F (35° C) they had predicted.

We watched "Taking Chance" this evening, and wow — it was not only surprisingly good, but it was also very emotionally charged, powerful stuff. While it's not a war movie, it revolves around a high-ranking officer volunteering to escort home a fallen soldier from the Iraq War, and it shows the respect and honor he receives on his final trip. It's a drama, so don't expect any war footage or stuff blowing up. The only shots fired are the ones from the honor guard.

The latest episode of "Entourage" was good as well, but I wish they would just make a series with Ari Gold as the main character. That would be freaking hilarious.
