December 30th, 2008... Oh my.. just 2 days left before we enter 2009. Incredible..
Time for top 10 lists.
You thought it was for music didn't you?
Well, here's my top 10 for movies of 2008:
1.BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT
2.HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO GUANTANAMO BAY
3.IRON MAN
4.NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST
5.ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO
6.THE WRESTLER
7.MILK
8.WALL E
9.THE CLASS
10.CADILLAC RECORDS.

I'm sure there's lots of you that agree or disagree with some and there's lots of movies I didn't get to see, but one of my favorite things to do is....WATCH A MOVIE. Did you know this?

Here's another top 10 list. How about top 10 places to eat for $5 or under in the Silicon Valley:

1.TOFU COM CHIEY-VEGAN place on 9th and Santa Clara. San Jose, Ca. you can get a sandwich for $2.50. Incredible deal and the owner is such a nice guy. His name is Ben.
2.EL ABUELO-Lincoln Ave in Willow Glen, Ca. you can get two crispy tacos for $3.90. and self serve chips and drinks makes for an insanely large meal for peanuts.
3.COSTCO-They're everywhere and a huge corporation, but damn.. $1.50 for a giant hot dog and soda. How you can beat that? And you can go inside prior and get free samples.
4.PIZZA MY HEART-They have coupons everywhere for buy one slice get one free. So for $3, you can get two giant slices of whatever you want. It's a killer deal. But only with a coupon.
5.SUBWAY-Yup..another chain, but damn.. $5 footlong is $.41 an inch.
6.TUNG KEE NOODLE HOUSE-Vietnamese restaurant chain in San Jose. You can get a bowl of PHO for $3.95 WOW!! And free hot jasmine tea.
7.FALAFEL DRIVE IN-Stevens Creek Blvd-San Jose, Ca.-this was featured on DINERS DRIVE INS and DIVES on the food channel. Killer falafel at a killer price. But I can definitely eat more than $5 worth of food.
8.KING EGG ROLL-Lundy Ave-San Jose. Greasy Chinese food for low prices. Does it get better?
9.NAAN AND CURRY-Ok, not in San Jose, but in San Francisco and Berkeley. So ridiculously cheap it makes me shiver in excitement.
10.EL FAROLITO-Since I broke out to San Francisco I'll do it again with this taqueria in the mission. Burritos so delicious and a green sauce to kill for. My standard hot spot when I go to SF.

Ok, so if you're from out of town I've given you a good list of places to eat for cheap and a list of movies to see if you haven't already. Albeit, HAROLD AND KUMAR isn't the most oscar worthy film, but for some reason I loved it so. Forgive me if you think otherwise.

I'll try to post some pictures from xmas and shows and new pics of moses and maggie. So check back and I'll try to get those up tonight.
peace, mike park
