I recently watched Ong Bak, and let me say this...Tony Jaa is a god. Said it! He is amazing in this movie. Martial Arts/Kung Fu movies were never really something I had been interested in until I watched the movie Chocolate. Since seeing Chocolate (go watch it if you didn't), I've been really into the Asian Martial Arts stuff, and Ong Bak is my new favorite. If you want to watch something that will keep you on the edge of your seat, watch Ong Bak.

Here is a small sample of what to expect if you so decide on renting or buying this film:



Want more? Yes. Yes you do. Here is a longer, less violent part of this movie that left me amazed at how airborne we can be if we trained hard enough.



Pure awesomeness. I also watched Ninja Assassin, which I will highly recommend to anyone who likes seeing people die in horrifying ways.

This mac and cheese recipe was voted #1 in the country. I'm going to try it one of these days and hopefully it's as good as it sounds. It has over 2000 calories per serving.


Ingredients

* 2 pounds elbow macaroni
* 12 eggs
* 1 cup cubed Velveeta cheese
* 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, melted
* 6 cups half-and-half, divided
* 4 cups grated sharp yellow Cheddar, divided
* 2 cups grated extra-sharp white Cheddar
* 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
* 1 cup grated Asiago
* 1 cup grated Gruyere
* 1 cup grated Monterey Jack
* 1 cup grated Muenster
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1 tablespoon black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until slightly al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside to keep warm.

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until frothy.

Add the Velveeta, butter and 2 cups of the half-and-half to the large bowl of eggs. Add the warm macaroni tossing until the cheese has melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining half-and-half, 3 cups of the sharp yellow Cheddar, the remaining grated cheeses, and salt and pepper, tossing until completely combined in the large bowl.

Pour the mixture into 9 by 13-inch casserole or baking dishes (approximately 3 (3-quart) baking dishes) and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of sharp yellow cheese and bake until golden brown on top, about 30 minutes more.

Serve hot.

I love the phrase "a hot mess". It reminds me of when my dog shits in the yard in below freezing temperatures. I don't know why this phrase is so popular.

I'm also a little creeped out at the fact that 'Predatory' is a mood listed with all the other normal moods.

Here's a video that ends with a toddler screaming.

I'm down on my luck.

This is my normal stance on life...but now that things are shitty to an extreme I'll probably never complain about a single thing again when they do finally perk up. Is this really what it takes to make people happy with what they already have? Yeah, it is, and I'm guilty of being that type of asshole.

But in order to make myself feel better I've been doing my usual internet hunt for artsy things that inspire me to be a better person and do better things with my life and the time I have. I came across Reid Peppard. I just adore this stuff. It reminds me of Walter Potter who I just looooove.

I'm a late 80's baby, so I only remember three of these.

But oh the fun you had watching commercials as a kid.




Here's the original Turtles PSA...yeah, I'm feeling extremely nostalgic this evening.
