New Summer Movie Trailers

Works a little slow this morning (just like your mom) so I 've been able to check out some new movie trailers. If you haven't seen the new Indiana Jones trailer, than you must already dead.

First up, Iron Man

Iron Man Exclusive Trailer

Add to My Profile More Videos

It looks like alot of fun. Unless reviews totally trash it, add it to the list.

Second would be The Love Guru, a new one by Mike Myers.









I'm a little iffy on this one even though I've been wondering what he's been up to. It's kinda funny and might have some potential, but I might need to see another trailer and some reviews to make a final decision.

GOB III on Conan

I rarely watch Conan, but last night I happen to stumble on to Will Arnett. It was great and made me want to watch Arrested Development again. I think this needs to be seen, and as luck would have it, it's already on the internets. Enjoy

Part 1



Part 2

Dunking

Read a pretty good article in SI today, (yea the magazine....yea they still have that, if only for the swimsuit issue but still) and it had a pretty sweet article on dunking (basketball, not your mom). Linky Here (which brings me to another point...why do I subscribe again?)

Still, there's a great shot of a Vince Carter jam in the olympics that I have not seen until then...er now....whatever tense it's suppossed to be in. I think it's bloody fantastic! (bloody? what the hell are you British now?)


The aftermath of that dunk is arguably better than the dunk itself.

Carter first garnered national attention for his high-flying brand of play during his three years at North Carolina. NBA renown came with his novel "elbow dunk" to clinch victory in the 2000 dunk contest. But international acclaim would follow months later during America's run to the gold medal at the Sydney Olympics, where his eye-popping dunk over French 7-footer Frédéric Weis became known worldwide as le dunk de la mort ("the dunk of death").

How fucking awesome is that? The whole country made fun of that guy, which is really bad since the French themselves are the ass of many jokes (you see what I did there?). To be the ass of the jokes by the people that are constantly picked on...well there's not much worse than that.

Here's another dunk they mention in the article....Baron Davis dunk over Kirilenko in the 07 playoffs. Nasty.




Go HERE for more sweet dunks...all linked in one place. Nice job.

Definetly need to see this.

Does Judd Apatow have a name for his movies like Kevin Smith's View Askew Universe? He needs one. This time Freaks and Geeks stars Seth Rogen and James Franco are back. I'm curious to see which other of the Apatow crew show up in this one.



With The Dark Knight and Indiana Jones, this should be a another great summer for movies.

Stonebriar Sheraton Hotel

Just about complete... for now. They'll do Phase 2 later this year where they add another wing to the hotel (6 or 7 stories), a convention center with a pool on the roof and a parking garage.

Exterior Shots






Guestrooms







Some shots of the 1st Floor public areas.
Obviously they are still not done with the light fixture. They've since finished the fixture and added furnature since I first posted (2-22-08). I'll try to get an update.




They call this the "Link" area. It'll have computers on it.

Ugly carpet in the meeting rooms.

Pictures of the reception desk and the marble top.

Count'em

Call these optical illusions (Illusions Michael...tricks are what a whore does for money...or candy) if you will. It took me a while, but I think I've gotten them all.







(By the way, I think the last one was the weakest of the bunch)


See what you say? I'll post the answers in the comment section soon, just incase you're completly lost.

Thomas Goes to the Bathroom....Hilarity Ensues

Soo let me get this straight. A "meskin" abortion clinic is a Honky buffet?
I had not seen this one until recently. I laughed. I'm actually a little creeped out by this one...
Well this should save me the 8 hour drive.
I wonder if they card.
This one's hilarious to me...and it's also how I refer to rough toilet paper ever since.

This one's only funny if you know our Superintendent Jorge. Apparently the field thinks he's some sort of ninja turtle.

This post reminds me...I really should put up some completed photos of the hotel. Stay tuned!

Sarah Silverman & Matt Damon

Because I needed something to make me laugh on a Saturday that has started out shitty.



By the way, it's borderline (so's your mom) but it's probably not safe for work.
