“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Movies, Games, Books

Not dead. Also, not unhappy. ^^; Just busy. (Okay, so I'm not that busy.) Saw Gone Baby Gone -- you know, that Ben Affleck movie about the missing kid -- with and J ('s boyfriend) last Friday. Overall I liked it and think it's ...

Quick post on a Sunday night

Yin and I beat Jak III over the weekend. If you take out all the time we spent dying and re-doing levels, I think this game would only be five or six hours long. It is totally my kind of game though. Unlimited lives, plentiful reset points, ...

Sidekicks, Rabu, Jump Superstars (in other words that organization thing is still not working out)

As a side note to various discussions on racism in American media, Entertainment Weekly's list of The 50 Greatest Sidekicks of All Time includes a handful of black sidekicks to white main characters -- including one where the two were originally billed equally -- but nothing the other way around. ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...

6-years-too-late review of disposable teen comedy, John Tucker Must Die

Saw this with M. It's really not too bad... if you ignore the ending, aha. Especially the casting for John Tucker is good: at first you are like, what do any of these girls see in this guy? But by the end you are like, hmm, ...
