Fesh, I am Your Father....

So a friend of mine got just got this uber home theater and we wanted to put it to the test. We kept thinking about the ULTIMATE movie marathon to initiate the home theater with. Lord of the Rings came up, but I objected seeing that I am in the middle of the second book right now and don't want to spoil it. I pushed for an ultimate Rocky marathon, but surprisingly the idea was shot down. Finally we agreed to watch Star Wars, or as the nerdy dude at the DVD store called it: The Holy Trilogy.

It was very interesting that after a couple of beers and midway thru The Empire Strikes Back we were intrigued by Darth Vader's ability to choke people using the "Force" yet without touching them. Seemed like a very kool way to kill someone. Later we were blown away by the fact that Darth Vader could do the same remotely! One of the guys wondered loudly if having such a capability "Remotely Choking to Death" as a nice colorful button on our internal Instant Messaging tool at work, was a good idea. Off course we can tone it down like maybe make it send a 3-second electric shock to the other person or something, but other than that sign me up.

hmmm.... maybe nerdy sci-fi movies and beer is not a good combination after all?

I did the LOTR 10-hour marathon once, and even though I spent the next week in a coma talking in Elvish and adopted the name Celebaith Almirion (that's real Elvish btw) it was good fun.

What I'm trying to say is that if you do watch the whole LOTR without involving me, you will suffer a fate worse than Melkor's.

Did my nerd just peek out again?

OOOOOOOOOOOO LOTR for the WIN! I am wrapping up The Two Towers now, I project that by end of Q2 of FY0708 I should be done. Care for a LOTR movie marathon in Q3?

I see that you attempted to cloud your slow reading abilities by throwing up all kinds of nonsensical corporate bollocks. Nice.

Welcome to virtually every meeting I attend. It's a tough life.

Well I must agree that when I watched Episode I thru III with no beer it wasn't as kool.... when I do LOTRs I must inhale massive amounts of Al-key-hole.
