    By the way, I rented and watched Blade Runner, mostly out of a horrible gut wrenching guilt and shame. Movie was awesome.

    Blade Runner = awesome

    W. = not so awesome

    Forgetting Sarah Marshall = pretty damn funny

    I finally got around to seeing Oldboy. Wish I would have done so sooner.

    Also, that hallway fight scene + music was brutal and amazing.

    Edit: this one.

    i always feel a little bad when i have to admit to people that i really haven't seen that many movies
    like very very few
    i'm not a movie watching person
    but some of the really big ones surprise people since they're like...everywhere all of the time
    for example, i've never seen the original star wars movies
    just the new three. and i didn't even really pay attention while i was watching those.

    edit: i've seen a lot of animated movies though, i should toss that in there.

    Don't worry beavo, I am in the same boat as you. There are a lot of movies I haven't seen, and to make things worse I never remember anything about the movies I have seen. Seriously my movie memory is atrocious.

    Let's see if you are worse than my new co-worker.

    Have you seen...

    Jaws? Back to the Future? Aliens? Raiders of the Lost Ark? The Godfather? American Graffiti?

    I've watched a lot of movies, which makes it all the more startling to people when I say I've never seen any of the Godfather movies.

    Don't take it personally, I judge everyone. :)

    As far as Aliens goes, that movie is awesome and hugely influential. Sigourney Weaver even got nominated for an Oscar for it!

    Edit: And just to be clear, I was simply naming some fairly well-known movies, not necessarily what I think is the best.

    I only just saw that recently, and to be totally honest, even though it probably has the best cast ever in a film, it's very long, and I'll probably get shot for this, but it's a tad boring.

    I've seen over 1600 movies.

    And watched in full succession probably around 40 television series, if not more.

    And read through the archives of like 20 online comics and keep up on like 10 every week.

    And spend copious amounts of time on the internet.

    And I'm still a pretty successful fellow.

    So I guess I just want to give the finger to those kinds of parents that are like "Don't let your kids watch too much TV and play too many video games."

    It's human nature. If you aren't a part of our herd, we want to ostracize you.

    It's not a serious judgment of character. It's just weird, and makes me wonder why. I mean, I guess some people ride bikes instead of watch a movie or play video games, but that just seems so much less productive aside from keeping your heart healthy so you live a little longer. I'd rather have the experience of a film or anything than just another bike ride that I'll forget the moment it's over.

    It's a lot easier to appreciate Aliens after seeing Alien Resurrection.

    ed: Please do not see Alien Resurrection.

    That's why you use the ones that work outside the context of the show. I used "Man, that guy's so fast, he makes Speedy Gonzales look like regular Gonzales." at a math event, for instance.

    How did you get the bright red? I've spent some time researching how to get a red patina on copper and I'm not sure which method would work best. The texture and shape of the vessel are fabulous, by the way.

    Heat patina will usually do it. Experiment with temperatures/times. It will be more of an iridescent red.

    That patina I did was essentially a type of heat patina. The piece you are wanting to patina is heated on the opposite side from where you wish the brightest red to show. You heat it to a dull red/orange heat depending on the desired effect. It is then IMMEDIATELY (very important) quenched in violently boiling water. I mean...have the water boiling 5 inches away from where you are heating your piece. It is imperative that it loses as little heat during the transfer as possible. Leave it in there until it is the same temperature as the water, remove, rinse in cold water, and let air dry before waxing the surface.

    Lead acetate based patinas work, as well, but are extremely toxic.
