The Daily Plate

Have you guys seen this website, Before I found it I had been using an excel spreadsheet to track calories on my own. This site does it all for you and best of all it's FREE!! After you create an account it will keep a calender that you can update with foods you eat and activities you do throughout the day. It's a great resource for looking up the nutritional information in foods at restaurants. If you can't find something you can add the item and it's nutritional contents. You'll have to check it out and if you join look me up and add me as a friend. My profile name is Fastenta.

Weekend at the Movies

This weekend I had to make a trade. In order to go see the Dark Knight with Holly and her Mom, I had to go see Momma Mia the next day. It's a good thing the Dark Knight was AMAZING because Momma Mia was horrible. I would only recommend it to those who are heavily sedated or if you love choreographed dancing and singing to ABBA songs. (I didn't fall into either of those categories).

Back to the good part of the trade, the Dark Knight has got to be one of the best movies of the year.
I thought it would be tough to top Ironman but it easily surpassed it. Heath Ledger did an awesome job (I was worried when they cast him...Brokeback Batman???) and gave a very good psycopathic spin on the Joker. All of Batman's gadgets were up to par and I thought the movie was well written and very well directed.

There's already rumors for a third. If they consulted me I'd have them bring in the Penguin and the Riddler for the villians. I'm thinking they should get Johnny Depp (he was rumored for the Joker's role but after Ledger's performance I think they made the right choice) to be the Riddler but I've had a hard time coming up with a good Penguin. Most actors who fit into the "short and fat" category are comedians making them a hard sell for a serious villian. Nevertheless, I think a deranged and dark Jason Alexander could be a good fit if it's not too much of a stretch. I'm sure whoever they get and whatever they decide to do it'll be on par with the first two and make for another awesome movie.

San Francisco Pictures (I know they're old)

These are some images I found on my hard drive tonight that I hadn't yet developed. I must've been in a black and white mood with some tints thrown in. These were all taken in San Francisco back in March with my E-500 and processed using Adobe Lightroom.

Logan Car Show

Over the 4th of July weekend Holly and I went with her family to go to a Logan Car show. There were lots of cool cars. Below are some of the pictures I was able to grab among the crowd.
