Another weekend update

It's already been a week since the last post. Since I don't really feel like telling a whole long story, I'll just hit some of the highlights.

What a great Super Bowl. I can't believe it was even a game but each team had opportunities to take a big lead and neither capitalized. AZ's pic six was a 14 point swing that killed them. Pitt. couldn't get anything going in the second half. Who knew AZ's D would be so good. Unfortunately some of the refing was a little suspect but what are you going to do? The toughest call was the pic six that wasn't clear if he was in or not. We had a little fiesta with some big time food. Good thing I started running again to work that off.

The commercials from the super bowl were mostly whatever. The highlights: Two Doritos commercials seen here and here. I also liked the Pepsi max commercial here and Tamara like the Coke Mean Joe Green remake here. I really think that was about it. We enjoyed seeing MC Hammer, especially from a company with traditionally horrible ads. GoDaddy continued with their mature content. But nothing earth shattering. The US automakers and banks were noticeably absent. I can't make any comments about Mrs. Potato Head. Maybe I'll add the MacGruber to the list that were good but not good enough to link to.
Maybe the most exciting ad was for the new Star Trek movie. I only see a few (meaning less than three) movies a year in the theatre and this will be one of them.

I was outside when it happened but apparently Taylor to the left was very upset about how lame the "3-D" was since it came out in 2-D.

The Office really blew it afterwards. They've never really done well with the hour long episode and now the story lines continue declining and it's really not that funny anymore. I'm out. Unless there's another funny one I hear about and I'll watch it online.

We went to see the Phantom this weekend with my parents, Jason, and Jason's girlfriend! This has always been one of my favorites since we grew up listening to the soundtrack growing up. Dad really has the hook ups with the tickets. My mom's b-day is coming up tomorrow. I'm not going to say how old she's turning, but it's a major one. And rhymes with nifty. So I'm giving a shout out to my mom. It's been awesome being back in LA and spending more time with her. Though we talked a lot when I was in NY, it's not the same as seeing her on a regular basis and it's been great. Since I've grown and require a little less hand on direction we're able to be better friends and I'm grateful our relationship has matured in that direction. Thanks for all the support. Tamara and I love you.

I have a couple interviews for international gigs which I'm not getting my hopes up too much about but it's interesting how I can't get one for a domestic company, just international. Which is cool by me since I do want to live international at some point and Tamara's still on board at this point. So, if this summer you're planning a trip you may have a place to stay abroad if you give me a couple months.
