...why so serious?!



very special thanks to mr. peter graham! yes, it's 3:30am, i'm brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed after coming home from catching the midnight showing of the dark knight. as far as super heroes are concerned, iron man beats out batman by maybe an inch or two! the real draw for this movie is in its super villain -- the joker. played amazingly by the late heath ledger!



the joker steals the movie, hands down. creepy, comedic and erratic all in the same breath. he was scary, because you didn't know what he was going to do next! a true psychopath!

let me rewind a little bit... krish and kat went out to take part in the celebration of nas' new album, "the-album-formerly-titled-n***er." when krish got home, she decided to stay in with the baby (instead of leaving him with my mom from 12am - 3am) and let me catch up with peter, who got us the tickets, to watch the movie. to "phil" krish's spot, i called up my best friend, mr. jeanmarie and we hit the vista theater in l.a. to meet peter. sat down with our fellow film/comic book geeks (who i'm sure we'll see again at comic con), popcorn in one hand, soda in the armrest and phone on silent... aaaaahh... what a great way to start my birthday!

i'm about to snuggle up with my beautiful fiance and my fussy son -- and before i doze off into a deep sleep, i'm going to try and reflect on this past year of growth!

i love you, krish.

i love you, kahlil.

i love the struggle and what grinding through the struggle brings to fruition! all power to the people! actively pursue freedom! solidarity is the key! isulong!

MAyn! I'm sooooo freaken Jealous!! I don't even want to be happy that you gave it suck a rave review. I can't wait to see it. Hell Boy was damn good too. It had alot of India Jones style One liners so I'm ready for a blockbuster that has better dialouge
