Transformers 2 = Suck

Man, I was totally disappointed in Transformers 2. It was way too long, had very little story, was too silly without actually being funny. I hated that they spent so much time on those fucking annoying ghetto “twins”, when they finally introduced very cool female motorcycle bots only to do nothing with them! Not to mention the Autobots from the first movie got next to zero screen time.

And don't get me started on G.I. Joe (which they showed a preview for). That movie looks like digitized shit projected on a screen! Part of what I liked about G.I. Joe was that each of the characters were crazy individuals, but they were the best in their field. I loved that one of them wore a football jersey, on had a scuba suit (at all times...), and one had a fucking wolf!

This movie striped everything that made them cool, cut off their collective balls, and gave them uniform black rubber onesies and Iron Manlite accelerator suits!

Also, is it just me or is there no Cobra Commander in this movie? It seems like Destro is the big bad...

It's only a matter of time before they rape Thundercats!

Aquatic Ape Theory

Man, I love the beach (not so much the sand that sticks to everything) but the ocean. Kinda makes you wonder if all the proponents of the Aquatic Ape Theory aren't on to something.

This is the first time it's ever occurred to me to bring my camera to the beach and since it's not water proof it was a bit tricky.

The Hot Air Balloon Ride I bought all the way back in March finally happened! It was well worth the wait though. The view of downtown Miami, rural Homestead, and the Everglades from 38,000 feet in the air (unencumbered by an airplane window) was absolutely amazing. I felt like a superhero flying around up there.
