You know how they say April showers bring May flowers? That saying is accurate enough, but I think it’s more appropriate to say that April showers bring May blockbuster movies!!!!!!$$$$$

Starting with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, this summer is looking to be no different.  There are so many big ones that Wolverine flew completely below my radar.  Star Trek is the one that’s going to get the biggest attention from me, I think, because it’s always really cool to have a Trek picture on the big screen.  Even if it’s as terrible as Nemesis.

Here’s the list of major blockbusters coming out this year:

May 1: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

May 8:  Star Trek

May 15: Angels & Demons (sequel, I guess, to The DaVinci Code)

May 21: Terminator Salvation (hoping for the best, expecting mediocrity)

May 22: Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (looking forward to this, liked the first one)

May 29: Drag Me To Hell (I believe this is a Sam Raimi horror picture, and it looks appropriately ridiculous)

June 24: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (did people really hate the first movie?  The one that was only supposed to be an action movie with a loose plot?  Really?  Definitely seeing this one)

July 1: Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (there’s three of these already?)

July 15: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (gotta be among one of the bigger ones!)

August 7: G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra (okay seriously…why didn’t anyone tell me this was coming?)

August 14: The Time Traveler’s Wife (it’s got time travel, gotta be good)

August 28: Final Destination: Death Trip 3D (I don’t think this even needs a comment)

October 16: Where the Wild Things Are (I know, not technically a summer blockbuster, but a very big movie nonetheless)

October 23: Astro Boy (see above)

*sigh* my wallet will take a beating I think.

Dinosaur Bones

Dinosaur Bones

When I was a kid, dinosaurs were my favourite thing.  I even got this book made up for me by some friends/relatives that was all about me playing with dinosaurs – and that was the best book I ever had, I’m pretty sure.  I remember the highlight of one year was getting to sleep over at the museum among the dinosaur bones.  THAT was cool.  Anyway the point I’m getting to is that I still love dinosaurs.  Partly because they’re still cool (even though they’re not as popular as the late 80s/early 90s), but also because it’s a bit of nostalgia.

So I was immediately attracted to the group Dinosaur Bones.  When I first heard their lead single NYE on CBC 3’s podcast, I actually didn’t know they were called Dinosaur Bones.  I really liked the song, and after hearing the name of the band, it prompted me to check out the rest of their music.  The initial reaction was representative of what I feel about the rest of their music: I like it.

It’s not heavy rock at all, but it’s not too light either.  It’s a good mix between the two, and is very listenable (is that a word?).  I think my favourite track is still NYE, but their other offerings (such as Royalty) are about the same in quality level.

Imagine my pleasant surprise that they’re coming to Ottawa on April 10th!  That’s a Friday night, so I know I’m not busy that evening.  Really looking forward to it.  It’s at Cafe Deckuf, a venue I’ve been to only once.  It’s a small place, but it’s pretty cool.  Going to be living on the major bus route as of this weekend so getting there/back will be a breeze.

Definitely going to do my best to get to this concert!
