NINJA Tour

I saw the NINJA tour (Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction) when it came to SD on May 16th.  As ususal, NIN, was excellent.  Jane’s Addiction was good too, but I truly couldn’t appreciate it because I don’t particularly care for their songs with exception, of course, to “Got Caught Stealing.”  Anyhow, I took some EXTREMELY horrible pictures with my iPhone and posted them to FuzzyShot.  Here’s a link if you dare.  If you like NIN, go to this tour and sing your lungs out (I did, along with a little dancing).  Rumor is that this may be the last time Trent Reznor goes on tour as NIN (I hope this isn’t true).  Whether you stay for JA is up to you (I stayed for about 1-hour of JA).  Also, check nin.com for some fund raising activities in conjunction with the NINJA tour.

Movie Review: Terminator Salvation

The new Terminator movie is one of the best video games I’ve never played.  This movie is wall-to-wall action with lots of guns, little robots, big robots, and hand-to-hand combat.  As for the acting, Christian Bale plays “Batman” and everyone, the scenery, and camera style seem imported from the new “Battlestar Galactica.”    Actually, a lot of this movie seemed imported from a few recent movies, TV shows, and video games (I also got a vague sense of “Halo” from this movie).  I thought the end was pretty jacked up because I would have liked the character that dies to continue on.   Geez … it’s rather handy to have someone who can hack into Skynet without becoming part of Skynet … Oh well, whatever … My feeling is that this movie fits in with the first two movies.  The third movie was a stinker, so I don’t count it as a Terminator movie.    Suspending reality, though, I have to say I really enjoyed this movie for what it was and I recommend it as a good summer action movie.

Movies Kuroneko003 is anticipating — “Harry Potter 6”, “Bruno” (from that “Borat” guy — the theater was giddy with laughter during the preview), “Sherlock Holmes” (starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law — Hellz YEAH!!!  Both of those guys get better with age), and “The Hangover.”
