Today's mission: a new icon for LJ, and a new icon for the wrestling web board I am on. Also today, Leonard Cohen turns 68, Larry Hagman turns 71, and Stephen King turns 55.

Red Queen's day off turned into an early show of Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever. The plot was as fast-paced and confusing as the action scenes. You can tell it's based on a video game. Stuff blows up a LOT, many many bullets are used, but oddly, not very gory at all. If the commercials looked good to you, go see it, you'll enjoy it. It's a good summer action flick, nothing more. Oh, and don't try to follow the plot, it's excessively confusing. But, Ray Park! And he gets lines of dialog!

Burger King dinner! The new tacos are, uh, yeah. But the new tiny sourdough sammich is tasty! And the right size (i.e. not huge.)

Home in time for the Firefly premiere. It's a scifi western. I hope it gets to stick around, it was entertaining enough. Plus, I like scifi, and I like westerns, so this is up my alley. They put in enough to make me curious to watch next week. And quite the ensemble cast. Adam Baldwin (Animal Mother!) Alan Tudyk (The squire from A Knight's Tale!) And the girl who played the ballerina on that episode of Angel! (Can you tell I'm prepping for watching a lot of TV this year?)

Joe Bob Briggs reviews a Cher concert.

WELL, DUH: The terrorism-alert color system isn't informative enough to be useful.

NEWS, ETC.: Rwanda may just be actual hell on earth. Let's welcome in an age of American imperialism. And hey, time to limit immigration as well! So, let's pile on some censorship. Maybe, as a nation, we need to start making All About Me posters.
