I was already excited to see this movie but when I found out that I could get free passes to see San Andreas early and The Rock was hosting it, I was on board. I had always wanted to see a movie at the Chinese Theatre and here we are. I got there at around 9:45 which was good timing considering the long line that had already started. I got a wristband for the handprint ceremony later. Yes!
When we got into the theatre, The Rock came and greeted people with selfies, Periscope and submitted Q&As from Twitter and from fans in the crowd. He was so cool, making jokes and just having a good time. I really like the guy and he is a great entertainer. Just being the presence of the legend was great and I tried to take as many pictures as I can from it.
CHECK OUT THE PICTURES HERE.
See that post? I was one of the five to post a comment. I just wrote “Me plz” in the comment. I knew that me being quick was the key to the whole thing so I didn’t even bother spelling correctly. I was contacted and now I await my prize!

Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter.
When I watched the first Captain America movie, I was crushing on Agent Peggy Carter. I don’t know if it was because Hayley Atwell was a new face to me or it was her British accent. But I really enjoyed her in the movie and I was heartbroken that it would be her only major role in the movie series. But when I found out that they would be making a mini-series of her character, I was so excited.
So this morning I finally got to watch the show and I loved it. It was a great story of her trying to prove to her sexist co-workers that she is more than just a pretty face. And she did prove that she was more than just that. In fact, she kicked ass.
So when I decided to go to the show’s Facebook page to catch up on updates, I saw this one comment that made me stop dead in my tracks.
So let me get this straight. You are all surprised?
Did you see the trailer? What idiot approved this movie to be made? Then when we all heard about it, who thought it was a good idea?
A movie about assassinating North Korea’s leader? What if North Korea made a movie about assassinating Obama? Would that fly?
It’s a dumb premise that obviously would offend some people. And because of an anonymous threat, Sony caved. Good. This was just bad to begin with. Too bad all that money was wasted for nothing.
Or maybe there was no movie and this was a calculated publicity stunt? Oooh. Hollywood got us!
So I forgot to blog about this. But hey, I got plenty of time.
I ordered these several months ago and they are official replicas of the shoes. It’s not made by Nike but I could of course modify them if I wanted to. Still, it’s a good deal for $100. The lights work and it feels good enough to wear. I might not even wear these at all. Except maybe for one day to celebrate Marty’s visit to 2015 in October.
Other than that, this is a pretty cool thing to have. I don’t know what I would do with it after that. I suppose I could just display it or sell it. Who knows if any of the new shoes some other company makes, or even Nike makes, will be available by then.

When Toy Story 3 came out, I was hesitant about it because it had been too long and I felt that Pixar was reaching for straws just to get our money. But the movie was good. It was great actually. It was the perfect way to end the trilogy.
END THE TRILOGY.
But no, Pixar wasn’t having it. They’re making another one. Why? Because they know that we will bite at it. They’re giving us the double birds and saying that they know we’ll go see the movie. Our nostalgia is too strong and they’re gonna milk all our money. We are addicts and they’re giving us more drugs.
Nothing is sacred. I thought the trilogy can live forever as is. But we’re just stupid pigeons with money and they’re going to exploit that. They don’t care about us. They don’t care about the legacy. All they see is money. This is all we are.
