Man attacks police with two cobras. GI Joe surrenders @ 10:04 am

Yesterday Isaac, Ben, and I went and saw Ghost in the Shell 2 down at Cinema 21. Cinema 21 is a pretty cool theater. For an old art-house theater I totally dug it. Ghost in the Shell 2 was an... interesting... movie. It was a very *pretty* movie that's for sure. The CG scenes were gorgeous, and the animation was superb. The plot, however, left a little to be desired. It's pretty sad when you say that about an anime movie, you don't exactly expect a real solid plot going in. What little plot there was, was quite thin and stretched out. It seemed like there were long stretches where nothing happened at all. Overall it was a good movie though. Any movie where sex-droids go crazy and start killing people (and have sweet ninja-like moves) is ok by me.

Also I forgot to mention that I actually saw monkeyhole and his girlfriend at Fry's the other day. Surprisingly it wasn't in the video game section! Nice to see him, as I haven't seen him since college about 4 years ago.

I bought this killer bumper sticker that says "Keep Portland Weird" for $2. Only at Cinema 21 baby!

damn, its at C21 already? Last time I checked was only playin up in Seattle....must go now before gone...

And I expected as much from the plot....I still feel after watchin the first a few times, the plot was really lacking also as far as anime goes. It was still 'pretty' and entertaining

The first one had a much better plot than the second.
