7-IV-2009 or Back In Action

I'm not good at getting in here regularly. It's not that I don't love you all as much as I used to, because I totally do! I just have problems staying focused on stuff lately. I start doing stuff, and I'll focus on it to the neglect of everything else. Then, I get over it, and I start to take care of my business again. I have problems. Sorry.
In honor of the 10th Anniversary of TMC, I did another review, this one for The Syrian Bride. I don't watch a lot of Sundance Channel, but I'm glad I saw this movie. I can see why it's won awards. Please, if you have a chance, check it out. I hate to recommend movies, because I don't trust my opinions most of the time (remember, I thought Claire Danes was GREAT in Stardust!), and I don't want someone to waste their time, but other people liked this movie, too!
And Scott, the Stardust thing wasn't to get a rise out of you, so please don't take it that way.
OMG!!! In efforts to save money at work, we have a Think Before You Ink campaign. We're supposed to not print out a bunch of stuff on the computer, unless it is absolutely necessary, you see. I have a training meeting tomorrow afternoon, and they had a handout that they wanted us to print out and bring with us. It's a freaking 13 page monstrousity, and it's just the PowerPoint presentation we're going to be seeing tomorrow. HOW DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?!?! This is the biggest waste of my time and the University's resources. *sigh*
Anyhow, got to get back at it. I'm already thinking about my next RB birthday card... I'm pathetic. My thinking is this (and, again, Scott, I'm just saying, and I don't want you to change anything about the site, OK? OK?!): I've been picking bands that I love, and that I think might not get into the game otherwise. This is what I do, and it's like my little way of honoring these bands. The problem is I am now gun shy about accepting Happy Birthday themed concerts now, because my little bands are R1 (rightfully!), and I automatically get my Birthday cards in the theme, so I go in knowing I've got 2 R1's, which gives me a disadvantage. I'm thinking in the future, I want to find a good band with some higher potential, so that I can have a better chance of putting up a fight in that theme. Unfortunately, my little brain can't come up with any big named bands that I love, and that aren't already in the game. The best I can think of is Better Than Ezra, which I haven't seen yet, but even they probably won't be much higher than R3 at best (in my opinion...maybe they're more well liked than I think!). I'll keep thinking. I'm also leaning towards The Mighty Mighty Bosstones (though they are not my most favorite-est), because (as far as I know) the "ska" genre (as I think of it, which could bear no resemblance to the actual meaning in the mainstream) is not represented, and Bosstones and Reel Big Fish are the only two I really listen to enough to want to see them in the game (and I think Bosstones are slightly better, honestly).
And I voted for Bon Jovi to be raised up, even though it's in my possession, because I believe they should be raised up, and if my vote gets invalidated for that or whatever other reason, then :P because I will vote for them until my fingers fall off, because I love them, and I think they should go up. Def Leppard, too, but one R6 at a time. :D
EDIT: Yeah, I know that Savatage is an R2. I misspoke...miswrote..had a brain fart. Still, I'm thinking!
