When A Forest Grows Too Wild, A Purging Fire Is Inevitable And Natural

by Rainier on March 1, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We saw Inglourious Basterds yesterday, and it was as good as we expected, albeit maybe a little bit more visceral than we'd anticipated. The Oscars have increased the number of Best Movie nominees from five to 10, and Inglourious Basterds is in the running. While it was good, we don't really consider it to be a contender.

We didn't really do much else today. We like to sleep in on Sundays, and then we went to breakfast, ran some errands, and watched the latest episodes of Lost and Amazing Race.

My iPod issues crept up again today, and I realized that it happened each time my computer rebooted without me properly disconnecting it. It was never a problem in the past, since I usually never disconnect it from the computer before rebooting. So far, formatting and resynchronizing it seems to fix the problem, so I guess I'll save myself the expensive of buying a new iPod until it totally breaks down.
