Seven Years in the Jungle

I missed noting the anniversary the last couple of years, but as of the time this posts (10:11 UTC) it will have been exactly 7 years* since I started with my current employer.  There have been ups and downs during those years, but for the most part it has been a good experience.  It is hard to believe it has been that long though.

* I started at 17:30 UTC on Jan 11 2006, but since years are not an even number of days, the time of the anniversary shifts every year.

Cinema: Tron Legacy

Hey, I’m not quite two years behind!

Anyway, Amy and I went and saw Tron Legacy.  A few months earlier, we had watched Tron on one of our Family Movie nights to prepare.

It looked cool.  It continued the story from the first movie.  It was a fun fluffy couple of hours.

And that’s about all there is to say about it.  Nothing spectacular.  But worth it for an evening out with some popcorn.

Oh, and they did some neat stuff with de-aging Jeff Bridges.  Not 100% convincing, but good enough.

It could have used some more Bruce Boxleitner though.  I mean, he was in it, but he could have been in it more.  Speaking of that, when are they bringing back Babylon 5?  Or Scarecrow and Mrs King?

It seems it did well enough that they will be making a third Tron.  I’m sure I’ll watch that too.
