Ian and I met up with Ben and Amy to see Prince of Persia today.  The movie was terrible.  No character development, no real conflict to be found anywhere in the plot.  The acting was stilted and contrived.  Even Jake Gyllenhaal, whom I usually find to be refreshingly honest in his acting, was terrible.  I'm of the opinion that Disney may want to lay of the live action films for awhile and focus on conquering the world with Pixar and have it's 2D department follow in it's footsteps.

After the movie we walked back to their apartment because we left our work bags there last night.  On our walk over, we encountered some very strange campaigning.
 These folks were marching down the street holding candles for their candidate.  In America, candlelight vigils are reserved for the deceased or those who are in a grave situation.  Obviously, that's not the case here.

We ended up sitting at Ben and Amy's for a couple of hours, watching funny videos online.  "Greg Rutter's Definitive List of the 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced on the Internet..." is a good source of entertainment.  It reminded me of college.  My room mates (and, later, housemates) and I would sit around for hours thinking of things to show each other on the internet.  It wasn't the best use of time, but it was a good bonding exercise.  Ben, Amy, Ian and I share a love of the SNL Digital Shorts, so we watched several of those.

We've got an early morning ahead of us, since we're off to meet the Veggie Club in Seoul for some Mexican food.  It should be a good time.

Good night!

  1. That movie did not interest me after viewing trailers for it on TV. But of course you know those types of movies rarely do. Sounds like a good time with Ben and Amy. I am so glad you have people there to do things with.

    The campaigning sounds comical and interesting in Korea. Love the costumes.

    Have fun in Seoul tomorrow with the veggie club?
