Hello World!

You know what I did last week? I went to see March of the Penguins.

Don't expect me to be objective, since I adore penguins, but it was a great movie! It was basically a theatre room full of 449 five-year-olds... and me. And I was more excited about the kids. I really recommend this movie, if you're into learning (which everyone should be, cause knowledge is powah). Hell, even if you aren't, dude, there's penguins. They waddle and stuff.

Watch it. Now.

CSI Files Two Years Ago

Here's what was happening back in early September of 2003:

  • Real CSIs Lack Resources, Says Petersen
    According to William Petersen (Gil Grissom) most labs around the country severely lack the equippment fans see on TV. "We are better equipped and have more resources at our Santa Clarita studios than 75% of the crime labs in the U.S." The actor also discussed what itís like filming CSI and talked about Grissomís favorite guilty pleasure, Lady Heather.

  • Critic Predicts 'CSI' Will Win Best Drama Emmy
    Critic Diane Wets predicted CSIĎs DVDs would help the drama win an Emmy. "Take note: CSI has released two DVD season-sets since the spring, which means all those I'm-too-busy-to-watch-TV Emmy voters have had a chance to catch up in digital style to how great the show looks and sounds."

  • 'CSI' Franchise Scoops Two Technical Emmys
    Though CSI was able to snag a Best Drama nomination in the 2003 Emmyís, the series only walked away with one technical award - Outstanding Sound Editing. Miami walked home with the Outstanding Cinematography award.

    "While investigating the murder of man hired to make dirty bombs that terrorists intend to set off in Miami, Horatio finds the bloody fingerprint of his brother, Raymond, who he believed to be dead. However, when Raymond's son is kidnapped, he emerges from deep undercover and the estranged brothers must work together to save the boy. Meanwhile, while processing a crime scene, an unknown assailant holds a gun to Calleigh's head and, after a deadly confrontation in her gun lab, she is left doubting that she can continue as a CSI."

Meanwhile, before the chaos, Mac was approached by a shy patron who awkwardly engaged him in conversation. After feeling that he saved her life during the shoot out, she asks him to join her for a drink and Mac must decide if he is ready to start dating after his wife's tragic death."
