Friday, September 4

Well this has been a long day in the life of Tyler. Woke up early for breakfast and then went to business math where we got out twenty minutes early today. I said that it was like "Shawshank Redemption" when Drew let us out. So I got my truck moved back and we actually watched it then. After that we just chilled in our room and then went to dinner at Taco Bell, but it was closed so we went to the buffet, but it was closed so we went to the Noyer Cafeteria. When I say we I mean Adam, Austin, Jon, Joey, and myself. When we got back we played Super Smash Brothers and me and Joey realized that we are both dousch bags (so we joked about that all night). Then we went to Friday Night Filmworks to watch "Up". I will included the review at the bottom of this post again. It was a lot of fun and then we went to Joe's room afterward and watch V for Vendetta as a group. It was kind of like a movie day and it was quite enjoyable. Well I am sleeping in Austin and Adam's room for the night so I better head to bed. I will be home for the weekend so get ahold of me. I'll be back here again on Monday. Have a Good Labor Day and Stay Classy Nappanee/Muncie!

Wow! Don’t get me wrong that the classic Disney movies are heartwarming and humorous, but Disney/Pixar’s most recent release “Up” caught me by storm. When I say storm I don’t mean showers I mean tsunami and hurricane reaction. For those of you who do not know the whole story, “Up” follows the life of Carl, the typical grouchy old man, but as you find out in the movie has an eye for adventure. He fills several balloons and flies away from the busy city to go on an adventure. Along his journey to find paradise Carl meets up with a Boy Scout who ends up teaching him life long lessons as they adventure into the wilderness after a terrible storm. While the trailers for this film made the movie look quite cheesy, the actual motion picture is excellent. Throughout the film I find myself crying like a baby and then a few seconds later laughing hysterically. As the friend I went with said, “It is an emotionally draining movie.”This is an excellent movie and if you thought Nemo was good then you have a whole new thing coming to you. It is a must see and if you are not an animation person, then look at it as a real story because the lessons it teaches and the themes it covers are truly meaningful. There are also a few added bonuses to this movie. First there is a Disney Digital Short before the movie that is really good by itself. Make sure that you see it because it will start revving your emotions before the movie even starts. Also be sure to pay specific attention to the voice of the construction man. You may recognize him from numerous other Disney/Pixar films. Last, but certainly not least, stay for the credits. They were very entertaining and clever because the position corresponded with the picture in the scrapbook. For instance the person in charge of shadowing had a picture of the characters doing shadow puppets. Overall it is a must see movie and the best that is out there!
