Act of Valor - Go See It!

Act of Valor - Go See It!

Went to see Act of Valor at the theater last night with some guys from church. Of all the movies I have seen this year, this is one of the most memorable. Go see it. It is worth it.

I always check reviews before heading to the movie theater. I've put many movies in the "wait for TV" category after reading reviews and plots. But for this movie, I was going to see it regardless of the reviews. Most movie critic reviews were negative while viewers seemed to like it.

One of the things I really liked about Act of Valor was that there were no injected sex scenes. I hate it when I'm watching an intense action flick and BAM! - a sex scene. (Columbiana went from action packed to WACK doing this.) No worries in Act of Valor, though.

Another thing I enjoyed was watching how the SEALS operate as a part of a much larger group. The air, land and sea support the SEALS have is phenomenal and we get a peek at that in Act of Valor.

The movie also hits you with the family. The realities and pain of separation come through.

When the movie was over, I wanted to see more. Act of Valor shows the SEALS in action and it wasn't over-done.

My favorite scenes were 1) riverboat support, 2) submarine, 3) sniper and 4) HALO jumps.

I'll go see this one again.

Form Meaning

The name of your form is SONGAHM which means: "Pine tree temple." Pine tree is known as evergreen...Evergreen has strength the year round and a long life. Evergreen also is a symbol of unchanging human loyalty.

The philosophical interpretation of the Orange Belt is...

"The sun is beginning to rise. As with the morning's dawn, only the beauty of the sunrise is seen rather than the immense power." The beginner student sees the beauty of the art of Taekwondo but has not yet experienced the power in the technique.

Dreamweaver Dark Code View Theme

As a Web Developer, I'm usually sitting in front of the computer for many hours at a time during the day. My eyes get tired after awhile, especially when I'm looking at lines and lines of code on a screen with a white background.

Dreamweaver CS4 is my go-to code editor because it has so many great features. It even allows customization of the code viewing environment, which I had played around with in the padt.

I was really happy when I found this great post on how to setup a dark code view theme in Dreamweaver.

How To Chop Samples with ReCycle

When I make Hip-Hop beats using Propellerhead Reason, I use Propellerhead ReCycle to "chop" the samples. Here is a question I got from one of my YouTube subscribers about chopping samples in ReCycle and creating bass sounds in Reason.
