I've got a reporter friend who's got a really cool blog. He made a new post, so naturally I went to read it because he's an amazing photographer and there's always cool pictures in his posts. He wrote about where the very well kept grass in Busch Stadium went during the U2 concert that was here in stl a few weekends ago. Turns out some of it was sent to my old high school Westminster Christian Academy. When I went there the school was fairly nondescript, lacking a lot of amenities that come with more modern built schools. They have been working on moving to a new campus since I was in 7th grade there, so quite a while. I knew they had big plans for this new campus but had no idea they were this big: 3 gyms, 2 theaters (which as a techie/stage crew person I would have been in heaven), 12 tennis courts, 2000 seat football stadium, and a softball field with Busch Stadium grass on it are just a few of the things that are coming with the school.
Well it looks like I'll be visiting my old school this next year.
the first trailer for Haywire. I've been waiting for this movie for quite a while cause I've been a fan of Gina Carano for a few years now. In short, she's an MMA bad ass (I think I've done a few posts about her). Even though I am a big fan of hers, I believe she kinda sold out by doing a movie and not focusing more on her MMA career. But either way, she's really cool and the fight scenes are gonna be awesome. The plot looks predictable and I don't expect much in terms of her acting ability, but I'm still going to go see it.
good news it looks like the mud run is coming to Columbia, Mo on Saturday September 10th. Here's the page if you wanna join. I'm super excited because the one in St. Louis will be held during a time that I might be out of town in May 2012. Whoo!! I'm excited!!
