Shrek 2

Just saw Shrek 2 tonight. Good movie! I liked it even better than the first. When the movie started I very much doubted it would end up as good as the first, but by the end of the movie I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Now don't get any crazy ideas about me being a Dreamworks Animation fan. No way. Dreamworks' stupid Shark Tale movie advertised in the previews is clearly a dirty ripoff of Pixar's Finding Nemo. And don't even get me started on the Antz/Bug's Life conspiracy. (Too late, now I've gotta explain myself.) K, first Steve Jobs (Apple and Pixar CEO) came back to Apple, and Apple started turning around and becoming hugely profitable again with great, innovative products. So what does Microsoft do? Owning a huge chunk of Dreamworks, it gets the movie company to begin churning out a crappy knockoff of Pixar's A Bug's Life as fast as possible to beat the Pixar flick to the theater. Why? To keep Steve Jobs focused on Pixar instead of Apple. Or so the rumor goes (search for "Antz" in the latter two pages).

Anyway, I've enjoyed all of Pixar's movies, and I'm a loyal Apple fan so all the more reason to love and defend Pixar. Nevertheless, Shrek 2 was good. As much as I hate to admit it.

General Purpose Statement

This is the JoshMeister's blog. Basically it's Josh's personal journal. He's often found in front of his computer, so in his estimation, the easiest and most logical way to keep a journal would be to have it hosted by a spiffy type-and-publish blog site like this one. So here you have it.

You're welcome to browse my postings here, if you're bored or something. You might find something insightful here on occasion. Anything's possible, right?

I'm getting married in 20 days

That's right, all zero of you who know about my blog (heck, I just put it up last night -- what do you expect?), I'm getting married in 2 weeks and 6 days. In fact, exactly 2 weeks and 6 days from now I'll already be married. Wowee! It's coming up quickly.

I have finals this week. They actually started on Thursday, and then I have a test tomorrow and a final that's worth 20% of my grade for the class on Wednesday, then the following Monday I have my final final. All this while preparing to move into my first apartment and trying to shove most of my posessions in the little place so I can get officially moved in. Did I mention I work full-time? Well, I do. So I've been pretty darn busy lately and I expect to be for a while yet.
