I love WALL-E, and EVE of course.
I bought this set at the Disney Store for a good price about ten years ago.
The other day we had an appliance repairman come to the ranch to take a look at our refrigerator. Before he left he asked if he could have some of the fruit from our cactus. "Sure man. Take as much as you want." And he did.
But I will tell you what, I would NEVER eat in this tent.
One drunk driver or "I mistook the gas for the brake pedal, Officer" and you are the lead story on tonight's evening news.
I have been really curious about "AVA". I know nothing about
it other than Jessica Chastain plays "a deadly assassin who works for a black ops organization". That sounds cool. And I like Jessica Chastain. Hopefully it will not turn out like Blake Lively in "The Rhythm Section". She was the "assassin" who was afraid to off anybody. Towards the end of the movie I was hoping John Wick would come in a put her out of her misery. The DVD "AVA" came a'way down in price. $5.00.
John Malkovich is great. I like Colin "I take myself SO seriously" Farrell. And Common was really good in "John Wick 2". We will see what he does here.
Will "AVA" make it onto my "Bad Ass Women" movie shelf?
"AVA" will squeak it's way onto my "Bad Ass Women" shelf. The only problem with the action is that they use camera motion to cover up for fighting moves that are not actually made. Kind of cheating, unlike movies like "John Wick" that show ALL the moves. But, at least she actually kills people. I will visit this movie again.
I don't have a rating yet.
(P.S. They set the end up for a sequel and I hope they make it. I don't think they will.)
Today's knife is a stinker. This is my very first ever lockback
knife. I purchased it back when I was I think about 19 or 20 years old.
I bought it at the Jack Frost Surplus Store in Santa Monica, CA. I have no idea how much I paid for it. At the time, I was pretty dang happy with it. I thought I had myself a real "Buck" knife, like I even knew what Buck was.
This knife has more hot spots than the main drag on Saturday night. I have no clue what any of the materials are. It could be made of anything. I bought the sheath for it separately as it did not come with one. The quality of the sheath matches the knife.
It is not sharp and I have never even tried or wanted to sharpen it. Back when I bought this lockback the thought of actually sharpening a knife never even entered my mind.
One cannot appreciate the fit and finish of this knife until you own a quality blade. If you never do you just might never know that it is better than this.
Anyway. I have a few other stinkers that I will post in the future. They were all learning experiences and fun to have if for nothing more than the memories they bring.
I watched it. Yes, it was not good. For one thing, it was NOT a "museum in the heart of the woods." In the countryside maybe, but NOT in the woods. AND they never said that the story took place in the UK. I was not ready for that.
Anyway, I am going to give "The Jack in the Box" 3.2 "Museums Definitely Not in the Heart of the Woods". I would not buy this movie for $1.00.
The .2 is for the music which at times was pretty effective.
