Thanks to everyone for their happy birthday wishes. I did indeed turn 31 on Monday, the 11th. I am now officially in my 30s. Yeah I know, I was 30 for a whole year, but thirty itself is kind of a novelty. Not so with 31. Thirty-one is deadly serious. But anyway, I did have a very nice birthday, and thanks for asking. You guys are great.
On Wednesday of last week, friend (and blog reader!) Peter Fedak, accompanied by his lovely wife Daniele, flew south from the wilds of suburban D.C. to visit my wife and I here in Marietta. Fun was had. Though we didn't get to spend a whole lot of time with Daniele -- she was the Matron of Honor at her friend's wedding, after all, and had to attend to her matronly duties -- we got a lot of time to hang out with (sigh) Peter. In addition to playing LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga all the way through the "Attack of the Clones" section, we toured many of Marietta's big box outlets in search of video games and, later, video projectors. Actually pretty fun. Anyway, it was great seeing them.
Anyway, the reason I'm posting today is because a good friend emailed me a link to a leaked NSFW R-rated trailer for David Green's "Pineapple Express" this morning, and I just had to post that goodness up on the blog. The trailer's great all by itself, but the movie looks like something really different and good. I don't know too much about "Express", but I'm definitely interested in seeing it this August. And by the way, the song they use in the trailer, M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes", is damn catchy. I downloaded it the second I finished watching the trailer and I've been listening to it all day. Anyway, check out the trailer.
