list of films @Engineer J Lupo also thinks could of been sadder: life is beautiful, old yeller, my girl, the ending to terminator 2 when he gives the thumbs up before melting, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, up, and last but not least marley and me.

Haha, nah I don't mean it could have used more sadness. I meant yes, it was sad but it could have been Dear Zachary sad.

Hachi was the saddest movie of all time but once I saw the comparison to that moment in Terminator 2 I knew that I could never watch this movie

Not surprised the authorities considered their living conditions unacceptable. HA! The girl had no cavities and was way above her intelligence level for her age. Too bad more parents weren't as badass as him. I've read the book twice. Even though the book is fiction, there's some great ideas within it- like covering up shiny parts of a pack, hiding stuff in camp and making emergency dugout shelters. Dressing more civilian like when going to town so they wouldn't raise any suspicion.

The movie definitely touched a nerve with me, as I saw a little of myself in the Dad living how he choose to live.

I wonder how him and his daughter are doing now and what her thoughts are on her time living in forest park. Hope they're out there doing well.

I watched it last night with my boys. They really enjoyed . I did for the most part too....I dunno the end kind of phased me off but maybe more because I could relate to the rest of it with having to house up to get my kids back etc...

Been spinning my wheels in Anchorage lately. Looked after some much needed dental work at UAA. Some of it had to be put off for a week as I was in the dental chair during the quake. That was some day...
Officially been back at the base for 2 weeks tomorrow. Somewhere along the way, I feel like I shifted to an alternate reality. Shit's just been a different kind of weird.
