Galaxy Amigos

  The other day, the movie, 'The Three Amigos' was playing on TV.  I love that movie, but I hadn't seen it in years.  I noticed that it has the exact same plot as 'Galaxy Quest', another favorite of mine.  A group of actors find themselves in a real-life situation that mirrors plots from their careers.  They must then become real heroes to save some helpless people from some ruthless bad guys.  They use solutions that they had used in their films to conquer their foes.  There's a scene in which Martin Short's character gives almost a verbatim speech about "What do we have to go back to in our pathetic lives?" just like Tim Allen's speech.  There is also even a scene in each movie in which the actors have to work out a way of signaling each other with a bird call, which goes wrong.  I love both movies and each is relevant in its own way, I just never noticed the similarities before.

What's Up, Does?

  I think it would have been funny if the words for a female deer and a female dog were switched.  Imagine the Sound of Music song going, "Bitch, a deer, a female deer.  Ray, a drop of golden sun..."  Or imagine Snoop Dogg rapping, "I got does in the living room gettin' it on and they ain't leaving 'til 6 in the morning..."  Well anyway, have a nice day, does!

  Chief Loh just submitted our music for consideration to be included in the soundtrack for this movie!  Here's the trailer.

  I've also been going to Pima Community College as a music major and doing very well.  I have been getting A's and B's on my tests and have been learning a lot about music theory and music history.  I also am in a performing orchestra in which I am the percussionist.  I will be playing timpani, castinets, tambourine, triangle, glockenspiel and other things.

  Oh, and a horror website is going to be interviewing me about my novel, 'The Nocent' by this coming Friday, February 15th.  They're doing a review of my book on their website too!  This is the same website that did the review of 'The Greater Number'.  Geez, I really wonder what they'll say about this book.
