Mark yourselves out of 5, I'm giving myself 2.5 out of 5 at the moment.
I already have all those regrets.
(Does that mean I'm dying?)
@Dr Herbie:Yes, but the good news is we are all in the same boat.
I think I had already got to the stage where I recognised the value of mitigating some of those things - of course nothing can be done about the first 30 years or so of my existence ...
Oh, and I should add ...
STAR WARS Episode 1: The Phantom Menace 3D Feature Film IMAX ( U) (09-Feb-2012 11:00) Standard - Central Rows D - L, J19 - J19 Adult 16yrs+
All booked up for 3D Star Wars. I don't think I have seen this since if first came out so hopefully will be quite enjoyable now they have cut Ja Ja Binks out ....
(not booking that could have been number 6).
They got rid of Jar Jar Binks????
Edit: They have (semi) ASSIGNED seats at that theater/re? Really?
@cbae:Because its an ex IMAX screen most people still like to sit in the 3d "sweet spot" (ie near the middle).
6. I wish I had already booked tickets to 3D Star Wars
Regrets are for people that live in the past.
I focus on the positive things in my life.
Kids, wife, family, career, Microsoft, Channel9, job is a joy and my pet projects give me a lot of energy.
And ofcourse, Wordfeud is now on Windows Phone 7. Doesnt get any better then this.
7) I wish I hadn't eat the moon-paste.
Just enjoy your life. Simple as that. No need to get into specifics.
I remember reading a list from a woman who passed away from cancer(I've had it and beat it, one of my boys has had it and beat it), she had a list of things she wished she did. One that stuck in my head was..."I wished I used all my fancy candles instead of leaving them in a box". I like that one. Even still once in a while I'll light some candles and incense when I jump into Eve Online or Terraria...just because
Thankfully, once you die, you don't wish anything anymore and nothing you did before that will matter anymore either.
I was pretty in with the candle in the box thing. Until recently I had the notepad paper saved from PDC 2000 (along with a load of other stuff). Only relatively recently did I part with it (scrap paper for my daughters). I was definitely a MIB when I was a kid. (Mint in Box).
I think it has because lucasarts the games section of lucas's empire is pouring lots of money into some unannouned game which could be starwars battlefront III (my hope lies in that force because that game was a joy to play anytime online because you had ai backing you up and could be on teams too).
I would so pay for that game.
One thing on my bucket list is to convince them to let me code it or beta test it even unoffical versions. Wait if i play my cards right i might get to if their is an ea partnership in the mix because of combat testing.
Combat testing motto: The only thing you can say about combat testing is you cant say anything.
If I look at the movies 1,2,3 as something completely unrelated to 4,5,6, I find that ep 1 is better than 2 & 3. Better directing, writing, delivery... Maybe 1 doesn't deliver what fans hoped from SW prequel but as a movie I find it's atleast watchable. Jar Jar is bit annoying but nowhere as annoying as the deficiencies mentioned above in the later movies, particularly ep 3.
But I do understand that people prefer or look for different things. So the aspects of production that make me cringe don't affect everyone. It's a bit like some say Trek has wooden acting. I see that very clearly in DS9/Voy but with few exceptions the acting in TNG/TOS is above average. There's enough conviction in the technobabble delivery to make one suspend disbelief unless one starts analyzing each word in some familiar context. In SW ep3, the delivery is so horrible that even the non-technobabble stuff completely reveals the actor is all the time in front of some green screen and the writing is so abysmal they can't relate to it at all. In comparison, even if they had filmed LOTR completely in front of green screen, the writing in the books was of such quality that the actors and directors could better imagine the situations and thus know how to direct and act.
