Iron Man!

The new Iron Man trailer is out and I was thrilled to see two of my shots make the cut (pics above). It’s a great motivator during this last stretch of a project to see some of the team’s work cut together with big sound on the big screen!

I also have to say, while Summer 08 promises wall-to-wall event pics, I’m most eager to see Iron Man. I was 12 when I bought myself my first comic book: Iron Man#194 for 65 cents, selected from a bunch of choices off a circular wire rack at the local Hilltop grocers. The book’s mix of high tech and high drama were winners for me and I hope the movie captures some of that. I’ll be ecstatic if the film’s smart enough to satisfy my aging sensibilities, but if it’s nothing more than hot armor-on-armor action, repulsor blasts and soap opera drama… well, that should satisfy my inner-12-year-old at least.

It’s official

My new home

As of about 5pm Friday, February 29th, 2008, I’m the proud new owner of my first home! I hoped that closing on leap year day meant I would only have to make mortgage payments about every four years, but apparently it doesn’t work like that. Foiled!

I’ll definitely attempt to post updates on the updates to the house. Mostly as a way of keeping track of things myself, but as I brainstorm and throw ideas out there please feel free to post comments and suggestions.

Well, that’s it for now. More to come in the next week or so. By the way, if you’re looking for more pics of the house, here you go.
