Made it to Covington, LA

After a long day of last minute packing, runs to the storage unit, cleaning, and driving, we finally made it to LA. The cat also made it in one piece and is already making herself at home here.

I don't know how much I'm actually going to miss the town of Tuscaloosa (it does have it's charms), but I am definitely going to miss my friends there.

The end of an era.

Today we have everything officially moved out of our office at school. We just have to come back tomorrow and turn in our keys!

Joss Whedon

I'm starting to become a fan of Joss Whedon. After Becky started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she became a fan. I remember watching a couple of Buffy episodes when it was on tv, I even tried a couple of Angel episodes, but I never got hooked.

Years later I saw the movie Serenity. It was a continuation of the canceled show Firefly, which I hadn't seen at that point. Even without knowing anything about the preceding show, I ended up really liking that movie. Becky and I watched Firefly within the last year, and I ended up really enjoying it. The last episode definitely left me wanting to see what was going to happen next.

Also within the last year, I borrowed Whedon's The Astonishing X-Men (Vol. 1) from the library. It was a good read. I think I liked it because I already knew the characters and their back story so I didn't have to invest so much time into finding out who they were and what they were about. Instead, I was just able to just follow the current story arc. Whedon's writing was definitely good and unique. His campy humor was evident even in the X-men. A couple of weeks ago I read volume 2 and it was incredible. It was one of the best stories I've read in a long time.

Anyway, the point of this blog is that I'm actually excited about how Whedon's next project is going to play out. It's a tv show called Dollhouse. The premise of the show sounds good, but I'm more interested in watching how the show's characters develop. I think Whedon does a good job in making his characters three dimensional and letting them evolve, which is a far cry from the character development I've seen in Smallville for example.

I just hope Dollhouse has the same kind of success as Buffy did and doesn't get cut short like Firefly.

Here's the trailer:

The Home Stretch.

After taking a couple of days off from packing, I finally feel ready to get back to it. Today we are going to bring stuff from our office to the storage unit and continue packing stuff at home. We rented a 10' x 10' unit, but it still seems like it might be a tight squeeze.

The Plight of the Common Man.

This is why I love W. He really knows how to relate to Joe 6-Pack.

I'm Back.

I returned on Friday from spending a week at the beach with Becky, Ellen (Becky's sister), and Angel. It was a blast.
