She Tried To Sit In My Lap While I Was Standing Up

by Rainier on Dec. 10, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We just got back from the "TRON: Legacy" movie screening for a bunch of press and notable people (producer was there, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, etc). Of course, the main thing was the movie, which is being released 25 years after the original, and it did not disappoint. From the sweet visual effects and awesome sounds to the story, Daftpunk tracks and intense light disc battles, there was never a dull moment. We saw the movie in 3-D, but I wasn't quite as impressed as by Avatar. Since it's set in a digital world, I had expected more. Overall, it was top-notch ....

We have a full agenda for the weekend: setting up my new PC, planting flowers, attending a Christmas party and, of course, watching shows on the DVR. Busy, busy!
