10/22/07 - Old School, movies, and big houses

So this past week, I've had a desire to listen to some older music. Older for me of course is early 90's to late 90's. Right now, I'm jamming to LFO's second cd and have had it on repeat since last Friday morning. I've also pulled out some Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer and 2gether. I might be listening to 2gether this afternoon...what a great group.

Yesterday, the wife and I had planned to have a big movie marathon where we just vegged out on the couch all day and watched movies. Well, we didn't get started until about 6 in the afternoon so we only had time for two movies. The first of the movies we rented was Vacancy. I was surprised that Cristi seemed more interested in this movie than I was considering it would be considered a horry/suspense thriller. In all honesty, I wish would have rented something else because the movie sucked. There were so many things that I just wanted to throw something at the screen. I would have rather both the main characters died in the movie, but would have been partially satisfied if one died...I won't ruin it outright, but I was very upset. The other movie, that we were both pleasantly surprised with was The Hard Easy. We saw a preview on a previous DVD and thought it looked good. Plus, it had Nick Lachey (who I am a fan of) and Angel (whatever his real name is) who Cristi is a fan of. The story line is really nice and there are some real funny parts in it. The ending was better than most any movie I have seen in the last several years, so I highly recommend the movie even though most people have never heard of it.

This past weekend was the Fall Tour of Homes "hosted" by the Home Builders Association of Arkansas or something like that. Saturday afternoon, Cristi and I went out and took a look at a few of them. The one that really stood out was located at One Deauville Circle off of Chenal. It was listed for $998,000 at 6298 square feet. If you click on that link, you can take a virtual tour where it shows some of the really neat things about the house. Of course, you really have to see it to believe it. The other homes were very impressive, but compared to this million dollar house, they just didn't measure up.
