matt and i went to see cloverfield the other night.
oh, not together.
we live hundreds of miles apart.
mike and i did that from time to time. chattin' on the phone, eagerly anticipating a movie, no one to go with, bummed that we lived so far away from each other...
so we'd head out, see it alone, and then come back home and call each other. usually we had pretty much the same experience and similar reactions, but it was also a lot more fun--and funnier--when one of us had liked it (usually him) and the other not so much (usually me).
we saw the first two spider-mans this way and the hulk, the incredibles and a few others.
i saw cloverfield with sharon. matt saw it with suzanne and paul and laura.
matt and i thought it was great. i won't say anymore.
but try to catch this in the theater--the sound plays a really big part that you won't get at home.
matt, we gotta start going to the movies together.
in other perhapa-news; i mentioned last week that, in addition to the annual and the new series, we were looking into some other perhapanaut shwag and, especially, a newly designed website. well, i don't have the exact launch date yet, but i can tell you that craig's pal, kieran chapman, web designer extraordinaire and all-around awesome guy, has been working hard on something really, really special, with lotsa fun and surprises built in! stay tuned as we get closer and closer...it's gonna be sweet!
