25-year-old Wes (James McAvoy) was the most disaffected, cube-dwelling drone the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his girlfriend ignored him routinely and his life plodded on interminably. Everyone was certain this disengaged slacker would amount to nothing. There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die in his slow, clock-punching rut.

Until he met a woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie).

After his estranged father is murdered, the deadly sexy Fox recruits Wes into the Fraternity, a secret society that trains Wes to avenge his dad’s death by unlocking his dormant powers. As she teaches him how to develop lightning-quick reflexes and phenomenal agility, Wes discovers this team lives by an ancient, unbreakable code: carry out the death orders given by fate itself.

With wickedly brilliant tutors—including the Fraternity’s enigmatic leader, Sloan (Morgan Freeman)—Wes grows to enjoy all the strength he ever wanted. But, slowly, he begins to realize there is more to his dangerous associates than meets the eye. And as he wavers between newfound heroism and vengeance, Wes will come to learn what no one could ever teach him: he alone controls his destiny.

Convert DVD to AVI

 

This video demonstrates how to convert any DVD into a much smaller AVI file (all players will play). It turns a 4GB file into a good quality 700MB file. Very useful for conserving hard drive space.

NOTE: This video uses an old version of DVD Decrypter. In the newer version, simply left-click the "Main Movie" button in DVD Decrypter, then click the "Start" button within the program. If for some reason, DVD Decrypter does not work, you can also use a program called DVD Shrink, and select the resulting files as the source using DVD Decrypter instead of using the physical DVD as the source.

Lego Blocks Snacks

Kelloggs and LEGO have partnered to create LEGO Blocks Fun Snacks. You have got to be kidding…

This better be a frickin’ hoax, but according to Digg and this article, it’s not. This makes me sick to my stomach, and as the article points out…

"There’s really not a much gentler way to phrase it: The biggest name in breakfast foods and among the most iconic names in toys have put their ingenuity and marketing genius together to create a fruit-flavoured treat — LEGO Fun Snacks — that is so mind-numbingly irresponsible that at first I presumed it was a joke."

The Job Hunt

 

                      There’s nothing more frustrating (for me) than being unable to find work. I’ve been through the experience a couple of times. I started looking for work nearly a month ago. I’ve done everything from phone calls to going around in to different businesses in-person, just to show I can get off my ass and be motivated, which most places obviously appreciate! I’ve received a couple of phone calls, and even 3 interviews, but nothing came of it. I don’t think it’s a strike against me, there just seem to be more people then jobs. Though people keep telling me jobs are aplenty, which I’m finding hard to believe at this point.

                       I bought a Lethbridge Herald, and took took of the jobs I can do, and called them up. I even did some follow-up calls. Places either are not hiring, or "the busy season is just around the corner", then they ask me to try applying again in a couple of weeks.

                       The trouble with waiting is it works against me. I have to go back to college in the fall, and as of right now, there’s just over two months of summer left. Whatever job I do end up getting, I hope it will allow me to work weekends so I can stick with it. I’ve jumped around to different jobs in the past (which doesn’t work to my favor either), I don’t wish to do it again, and I’ve made that very clear.
