Random Friday, Ver. 114

(I looked back at my archives today and realized my last Random Friday update was posted over a year ago. Wild.)

1. I’m going to Seattle for a few days next week as part of a Nintendo-sponsored event. I’ll write about it when I return (hint: it’s related to the release of the Nintendo 3DS).

2. Best movie I’ve seen in a long time: The King’s Speech. I went to the theater knowing I would like it (based on recommendations from others who had seen it), but I was more impressed than I thought I would be. I laughed, I cringed, I teared-up (I rarely cry at movies, so the tearing-up was significant).

3. I saw the movie at E Street Cinema in DC with my friend Chris Abraham. It turns out we chose the same random weekday as Morgan Spurlock, who was there to promote his new film The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, along with Ralph Nader. Totally unexpected. (Thanks to Chris for taking the photos.)

  2. the nintendo thing sounds fun. Seattle is a great city – I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you need ideas of stuff to do there.

    I think I need to see The King’s Speech. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. And it’s been over a year since I went to a movie theater, I think.
