crazy weekend

and now my fingers arent working

hectic morning so lemme say this in the 2 minutes i have before my next meeting

District 9 is good, not great, but it is amazing that they were able to make that movie for $30 million and people cant even build shacks nowadays for a million.

50 Days of Summer was ok. Barely good. Music was good. LA looks nice. But its an airplane movie at best.

Also happy birthday to my old college roommate, whose garage this was Saturday night at his beautiful home with his beautifuil family,.

ok gotta scram

ps soooo glad we got rid of Kyle Orton in exchange for Jay Cutler. Trade of the year.
