1 - My bro shipped out yesterday to Fort Bliss, TX then on to Baghdad. He's been reactivated from the reserves and will be on an 18 month tour. He's been assigned to one of the main headquarters in Baghdad, so at least security when he's on the compound will be good. My father, being an ex-green beret told him to wear his flak jacket even when he's sleeping, no matter how hot, or uncomfortable it is. I hope he listens.
2 - Saw a special preview of Ladder 49 on Wednesday due in theaters Oct 1st. Security was pretty tight, they were wanding everyone looking for video equipment, but they weren't checking purses, so, I'm sorry, but I expect to see it on the net, if it's not already. It was decent drama. They warned us before they showed it, Bill, the Touchstone rep, basically said, Ladies, this is a drama, make sure you Kleenex’s handy, and men, make sure you can get Kleenex’s for the ladies. I thought it was a little predictable, but still good, the way they shot it. There were a lot of flashbacks.
3 - Resident Evil: Apocalypse, just saw it. A decent flick. I would say it's worth catching in the theater. Good amount of action, only a couple of surprises and if you haven't seen the first one, see it first. It'll help out with what's going on in this flick.
So, I'm now using Semagic. It's a nice offline editor for LJ. Easy to format and post. Thanks oncedelight for the recommendation.
