Transformers and Go
Thank you, AZ, for the comment. The internet is working again. I hope it stays that way too.
Yesterday was one of my younger bro's b-day, and we also went to a movie. It was Transformers. I'd regard it as the best movie this summer so far. I can't say it's the best one this summer yet though because I haven't seen Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which happens to come out on another of my brother's birthday.
Anyway, Transformers was awesome. I only watched a bit of the animated version when it used to be on kidswb, but it got pretty boring after a while. I got some names and stuff, so the movie wasn't too complicated. I have to say that the animation was awesome. It was great. The animation of Optimus Prime and his gang was awesome, though there was something.... Anyway there was also animation of the explosions and shooting missiles and stuff. The sound effects were awesome too. BTW the ending song was "What I've Done" by Linkin Park. The strange thing about the animation of the "robots" was done great, but there were some parts when they seemed really big and other parts when they seemed smaller. That's just something my oldest brother noticed when we were discussing it in the car.
I think it also discussed a political problem...I guess you could call it. You know how there are places or units the presidents organizes that he keeps secret from everyone, so no one has ever heard of it? You know, it's kinda like that searching for aliens kind of thing? The government keeps it all from their people. That could be a pretty dangerous thing though.
(This next part might be a spoiler, not much though.)
At the end in between the credits, there's an interview of the main character's parents. The question asked was something about the government keeping dangers from the people. They say that the government would definitely tell them that they were in danger and should evacuate or something. Of course if you've seen the ending of the movie, it's not as they would think. Anyway, I thought the script was great written and all. It had action, romance, new technology, top secret stuff, politics(sorta), and also a whole bunch of comedy. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
I also managed to make a go board and stones. It's pretty pathetic, but...it's still go. I made the board by drawing 15x15 lines with a total of 225 points. I also made stones. I cut tag board into circles and stapled and taped them with stuff and stuff. The sad thing is that the stones are all different sizes and look all weird and everything. It's not that bad, so I can still play with it. BTW it took me about 2-3 days to make all of it. Now I can play go with my bros without going on the internet. It does get boring playing with them though.
I don't think I can visit you all today. Sorry about that. Later.
