Universal Islands of Adventure/Wizarding World Of Harry Potter

Okay, so like, in November, some cousins and I (along with my sister) took a trip to florida to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park...  Well, as a theme land of a theme park it was pretty good. Later on I learned that the better parts of Islands of adventure were designed by ex Disney Imagineers, which sort of made sense, as it was a more cohesive unit... lands made before were more... wanting to say the best...  Oh, and butterbeer?  CRACK... it's not every theme park where it made me go, hmm... another one would only cost me about 12$...  SURE, WHY NOT... 

Pics follow...

San Diego Comic Con 2010 Pt 1

Went out to Comic con this year, will post and share pics later, just figured I mention some stuff I saw...   Okay, yes, there was a stabbing in Hall H on saturday, sadly over some dude sitting too close to another dude...  and the dude who stabbed the other dude, with a pen, near the eye, was sadly wearing the Harry Potter shirt they gave out earlier that day during the WB panel....  sigh...  so, like does this mean Hall H and Comic con has street cred now? oh well...   anyway, back to the news...

USA Network Panels

Burn Notice - Awesome, Bruce Campbell is the MAN, and they're making a Burn Notice prequel movie with Bruce as Sam Axe, an origin story of sorts...

White Collar - awesome, the panel, (their first time at comic con) was good, the actor who plays Mozzie (Willie Garson) seemed more at home at comic con than I've ever seen him....

Psych - 10 tons of awesome... go watch it if you haven't.... the best part was when Gus (Dule Hill) and the tap dancer did the tap performance from the show that played the night before...

Anime Expo

Ironically, I never made it. Was in the area, but once I was there, my cousins and I decided to instead chase after the Kogi BBQ truck. I think I was better off, actually....  anyway, here's the link, definitely try it if you're ever in the LA area....

Not into Korean/Mexican fusion food?  It's cool, one of these might be a better fit for you...

Inception (IMAX)

Now, this was the first movie I saw with the new IMAX ticket prices (17.50, non 3d) and I must state (and I probably won't say this often) it was worth the money, and I'd probably see it again if I had the free time. If you're gonna go watch it, don't believe any of the press for it, let it just take you for a ride.  It sets out its rules as it goes on, and builds upon it quite logically. It definitely helps if you've taken psych or sociology classes, but it's not necessary. Ending is quite good, and I'll post what I perceived from the ending later on.
