Scorpion

Incidentally, if you're one of those people who don't have a login to the New York Times site, get one! Wait, that's not what I meant to say. I meant to say, here's another link to the awesome letter of resignation from the US diplomat. Yay Snopes, zeitgeist of our times!

Just back from Daredevil, more on the tomorrow, but didn't hate it. Now, someone explain to me if there is any reason Velvet Underground's "Heroin" isn't the best song ever. Because I'm thinking it is.

Quick question: Anyone know if Thinsulate material is machine-washable? I got my cheapo gloves filthy changing Red Queen's tire [Note: Not a metaphor] and don't know how to wash these things (they put the care tag right over the wrist, which made it itchy enough I cut the tag off soon after buying them.)

So, Daredevil. I enjoyed it, decent action flick, but it's not one of my year's ten best. It's hefty box-office success also means more comic book movies will be green-lighted (greenlit?), which pleases me.
Pros: Hey, they didn't embarrass themselves. :} Michael Clarke Duncan lived up to all of my expectations. (imdB trivia fact: MCD put on 40(!) additional pounds to play Kingpin. Jesus H.) Bullseye chews up scenery like someone named Connery, but in a good way.
Cons: I'm sorry they made him a mix of Batman and Spider-man. As someone else said in their review, they went for CGI when simple wire-fu would have sufficed. Also, speeding up the action scenes (as was done with Gladiator) just made them look more messy, not less.
Le Dang: Poor poor Bullseye, never getting the costume. It's all he asked for!

Call the local news station! Time to panic! Are DC clubs unsafe?
