Man of Steel is a delight! I have seen it twice now (once in 2D and once in IMAX 3D) and am itching to see it again. This film could have alternately been entitled Superman Begins as it calls to mind the film Batman Begins both in its narrative structure and in its telling the story of the journey of the title character on the path to truly growing into his familiar iconic role.

I think writer David Goyer has once again created a compelling, thoughtful story that is nicely realized through Zach Snyder’s direction and the talents of his excellent cast. Some professional critics have called the film 'joyless' or 'humorless', but I would instead describe it as 'serious'. It certainly has its moments of joy as well as some low-key humor, but it never tosses in humor just to appease some unwritten assumption of movie critics about proper comic book film form.
 
The drama is heartfelt and the action is out of this world. For the first time on film, we get to see what truly super powered fighting would look like, and it is quite the spectacle. Hans Zimmer’s score is beautiful, stirring, and perfect. I’ve found myself listening to it again and again.

While I did have a few minor quibbles with it, Man of Steel is a wonderful film that left me with a grin on my face and has me eagerly anticipating a sequel!

"If you've been lucky enough to experience Zach and Cristina's hospitality at some point in the past couple years, then you know precisely why this is Big News for Atlanta. And if you haven't? Well, let's just say we don't know too many other restaurants in Atlanta serving up dishes like roasted rabbit boudin, bacon custard, chipotle ice cream or parsnip cake."

Very sad to see Google retiring Google Reader. Gmail and Google Reader were the two Google products that I used the most (not counting Google Search I suppose).

This course is a lot of fun! It started on September 30 but there quizzes aren't due until the end of the course in December and so there is plenty of time to catch up and start writing general game player agents! :D

Glen Bierman's dog Ford was shot multiple times by his neighbor, an off-duty police officer. Now Glen is trying to raise funds for surgeries to save Ford's leg. This video shows Glen treating changing Ford's bandage after the first surgery - something that he had to do for Ford every day for seven weeks.

You can help Glen with the costs of Ford's surgeries here: http://www.gofundme.com/1k0d2o

Story
Tagline
Christian. Communist. Computer Programmer. Music Lover.
Introduction
I’m a software developer living in the metro Atlanta area with my wife Melinda who is also a programmer. We have a Golden Retriever-Dalmatian-Chow-Bull Dog mix named Doobie and a Pitbull Terrier named Perrin who has never met a stranger.

I graduated from Georgia Tech in 1998 with a BS in Mathematics which was always my love and obsession in school, but since then computers and computing have usurped that place in my heart. I work on computers all day and then come home to often play with them. 

I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Computer Science via Georgia Tech Online Masters of Computer Science Program.

I enjoy listening to a wide variety of music and try to listen to as much as I can throughout the day. I also enjoy reading about history, politics, economics, and philosophy with an occasional bit of fiction.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and as such am committed to non-violence and social justice.

I am in favor of communism.
