The I AM LEGEND Premier

Posted by noodleswap Dec 12, 2007

Big night last night!  My lovely friend Andrew took me and a few others to the NY premier of the new I AM LEGEND movie with Will Smith at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.  Huge event.  Good movie.  BIG stars.  Here is my brief review:

 

Plot:  Long scenes that left me constantly waiting for something to happen, but when something did happen it was usually very exciting.

 

 

Cinematography and Visual Effects:  Outstanding.  A very cool and different way to see the city, and mutant humans, I guess, too.  

 

 

 

 

Sound Design:  Oscar-worthy.  Near-perfect.

 

 

 

 

Here are my pics.  My flash was off when Will was standing in front of me.  And Tom was so demure I was shocked and forgot to snap a photo.  Oh well!

When I figure out how a Mac user can upload a video to Picasa, I'll add link to the video of Will Smith's pre-show speech!

 

 

 

Ta-ta.  Thanks Andrew!!!!!  xoxoxoxo

Backwards GPS

Posted by noodleswap Dec 6, 2007

Okay, so I am working backwards here using my own global positioning system to figure out where I was when I took these pictures from the plane.  My GPS turned out to be the Jet Blue in-flight flight tracker, my eyes, and Google. As CURIOUS as I was to see if the GPS would get a better satellite signal 35,000 feet closer to the sun, I didn't have enough guts to turn on the device in-flight.  I left my unapproved electronic device with an on/off button, OFF.  Hence, the retracing of my steps to figure out exactly where I took the pictures while in mid-air!

 

These are my best guesses, since the flight tracker isn't entirely precise in showing you where you are from the plane.  But, I think I did a pretty good job.  Some of the places were easy to find on the map, but some were not so much--like that first crop-farming pic.  That one's up for grabs!  (Although I'm pretty sure I have the right portion of the state, tho.)

 

Take a look...
