Favorite Moments in Film

Very few people tend to watch martial arts films from asia these days, settling for the over-stylized choreography Hollywood offers in every other action movie. This scene is from Tom Yung Goong, a Thai film starring Tony Jaa, the current king of martial arts in Asia, who does all of his own crazy, insane stunts. Not only is it one long take, but one long crazy fight scene that defies movie-making rules. Behold the awesomeness.

Things I Learned This Weekend

1. I shouldn't make fun of customers who wear sunglasses in the restaurant. It's "rude."

2. Pointing out that a customer is wrong is, apparently, wrong, despite our belief that the customer is more often than not wrong.

3. Old people are cheap. And they love lamb.

4. My dad doesn't like omelettes. When I make them.

5. R.E.M. got really good again.

6. I might be over Guitar Hero. Might be.

7. There are 12 birds nests around our house and one inside. I officially live in a bird sanctuary.
