Movie Review: Wolverine

05 · 01 · 09

 

By @katiedoyle

wolverineSo, last night I went to see the midnight showing of Wolverine.  There are two main reasons I like seeing movies at midnight.  First, I like being an elitist who has seen the movie before most other people.  Second, I like being in a theatre with a lot of people who are there because they want to see movie a WHOLE LOT.  And the people who see comic book movies are the best.

I could start this review off with the boring stuff like who the characters are and who plays them and blah blah blah.  But I think that most of the people who are going to be reading this, heck, most of the people in the world know all of that so I’ll just dive in. Read the rest of this entry ?

I’m Katie and…

I’ve literally killed every PC I’ve ever had from using it too much which is why I’ll never use one again.

I watched the entire series of Buffy on DVD in two weeks and almost failed Spanish because of it.

The only copy of Thriller I own is on vinyl.

I save everything I’ve ever written.

I have shelves and shelves of DVDs that are in order of my favorite to least favorite.

I’m happier being a geek than I ever was being “normal.”

Why I use Linux and how I got started

I use Linux both at work and at home because I am more productive and so I get a lot more work done in less time. I do not find myself fighting the operating system to do what I need to do or running constant spyware, adware, melware, and virus scans. I do enjoy using it as well and I feel much safer while using it. With Windows I feel I have to be behind more than one firewall; but with Linux I do not feel that way. I also find Linux runs faster than windows, although some distros do run slower than others.   Read the rest of this entry ?

My name is Amy Thoren and my friends call me Bunny, Bunnykins, or Ami. I like any thing cute and girly, pink is my favorite color and I have a hello kitty keyboard and mouse connected via KVM to 3 computers.

I enjoy helping others and making people around me smile. I hate to make others upset or even see them upset and will do what I can to cheer them up. I get comments a lot on twitter and my own site about how kind and sweet I am and I love hearing those things. Thanks for those reading this that have said those. ^_^

Out of high school I wanted  to start a electronic repair shop, which I did do although was not very successful until I added repairing computers to the list of things I would work on. I honestly thank Microsoft for making windows ME so bad because if it was not as bad as it was I would not be a computer tech at the moment. I would probably be working at a grocery store which I did while paying for the online clases.
Even though I owned my own repair shop I was not making enough to live off of so I got hired by a company that needed some one for computer support over the phone and that is where I am working today. The company I work for also sells phones though t-moble although they used to sell all-tell until t-moble had a much better offer to resell phones. I do like t-moble much better then all-tell.

I run a few web sites which I enjoy working on in my spare time. The websites are http://otakplayground.com and http://otakugalleries.com. I am going to be starting a blog called bunnykinsblog.com, I just got hosting and the domain so just waiting for things  to get set up at the host and that should be good to go soon.  I also do want to mention as this is in my twitter bio that I do help others work on their web pages mainly installing scripts or  even editing scripts so I do consider my self a part time webmaster. I do some day when to go into web design full time but I have a lot to learn to do that.

I like anime, manga, web comics, comics, games, linux, computers, movies (mainly romantic movies), and making friends. ^_^
