• Punch Drunk Love (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2002): Enjoyable mostly because I was so surprised at Adam Sandler not playing an Adam Sandler character. Occasionally too symbolic for my taste. Female characters not well developed. Great cinematography and satisfying plotline.
  • The Dark Knight Rises (Christopher Nolan, 2012): I don't think I will ever get sick of this movie. Gripping, emotional, and satisfying as an end to the trilogy.

When you are stuck in the same town you've been living in for over half your life and your two best friends are posting pictures of their marvelous world travels on your facebook, you can't help but get a little bit (okay, a LOT) jealous, and maybe also a little upset that you've never really been anywhere worth mentioning to anyone.

So I can dream up all the places I want to go (and maybe, if I ever have any money to my name, I'll be able to go there for real.)

If I were to be really precise, I would have to write down every city, state, and country in the world, but I'm narrowing it down to some more specific places.

  • the Mediterranean Coast
  • Portland, Oregon
  • San Francisco, California
  • Upstate New York
