I had a nice comment on yesterday's blog on Motor Trend Magazine from John Fleck. He said reading a Motor Trend Magazine wouldn't provide enough data to say that American automakers are still primarily into muscle cars. John is right. Just go visit a car dealership and see what they are offering. Find me ten American built cars that get 30mpg in city driving.

Last night I watched the original movie, "The Day the Earth Stood Still." It is still a poignant classic and one of my all time favorite movies. Tonight Bobbi and I will go see the new one which probably wont be as good, but any serious scifi movie is okay with me.

If you are interested in a 12 minute video/photo montage of our trip to New Zealand and Australia, here it is as produced on my MacPro.

Jim, "The Day the Earth Stood Still," is one of my favorites, too, as it such a wonderful social commentary, as well as, a ripping good tale. Hard to believe a remake will be other than a typical action movie. I look forward to your review.

Speaking of reviews, I give your travelogue two thumbs up. So happy you brought us along on the virtual tour. Amazing what a few geek toys can produce. Lovely land(and sea)scapes. Got a good laugh at your Aussie girl comment! Bet Bobbie loved that :) Thanks for sharing.
