I went to Northport again last weekend...I wasn't going to, but barracks staff was preparing to paint in my room, so I did. I saw Liquid A at the Nutty Irishman in Farmingdale on Friday night, and unfortunately, they didn't quite match the level from the first time I saw them. Saturday night brought Ants Marching at Napper Tandy's in Smithtown, and they were really good. They're playing in Connecticut this Saturday night; I'm definitely looking forward to seeing them again.
Yesterday I saw War of the Worlds; I thought the movie was okay. The first part was really good, but I thought it got really slow towards the end, and the ending was kind of lame. Not much you can really do, since the screenplay is adapted from the book (which I haven't read). Today I saw Stealth, which scored very high on the SGBI (shit getting blown up) index; certainly living up to expectations on that count. The plot was predictably thin. My worst complaint is this: as a Sailor in the U. S. Navy, I can attest to the appearance of my female counterparts. There are some who are attractive; but not one, officer or enlisted, is anywhere near Jessica Biel. That was just totally unrealistic.
