Notes for 7/20/2008

Here are my weekly notes:

  • I’ve tried both of the new Vivanno drinks at Starbucks – the Chocolate Banana and the Orange Mango Banana. I have to say the latter is my favorite.
  • Sharon and I went to check out Capital Ex tonight. No rides, but we did have mini donuts, a corn dog, wandered around the grounds, checked out Sip, the Birdhouse Factory, and of course the fireworks.
  • I have seen The Dark Knight twice already, once in IMAX, so I did my part to help it set the weekend box office record. It took in $155.34 million this weekend, and broke a bunch of other records too such as opening day and the total for an IMAX film. I’m going to write about this week.
  • Here’s the article on Obama that goes along with that very provocative New Yorker cover. It’s long, but worth the read.
  • Should everything taste like Bacon? You can make it so with Bacon Salt.
  • No surprise here – the Nintendo Wii has surpassed the Xbox 360 to become the best selling game console in the US.

  1. Raine Maida was fantastical. Too bad that you did not add that to your list of things to do last night.

    As this was my first experience of *insert ever changing name here*, I found it lacking in the whole experience. The only redeeming quality of the night was the concert.

    I find that when movies are given such hype, like The Dark Knight, my desire to see the movie decreases with every article, piece of gossip or pre-release tv special I see. The fact that you saw it twice, bought your tickets weeks in advance and stood in line for three hours to get a good seat means that perhaps I will eventually see this one – a month from now; if at all.

  2. We did check out Raine Maida for a little while actually, I should have mentioned that too. We only stayed for a couple songs tho. That sucks that you didn’t have as much fun as you expected!
