fastest update in the west

Karaoke last night was ten pounds of awesome in a five pound bag, because my friends are cool people. Plus a couple guest stars showed! And a drunk hick hitting on one of them! Anyways, the full write-up will come later, along with news links.

Later, because my day off today will be full of a double-header movie-o-rama! ehehehe. But I have to get ready to go *stat* to make this all work.

(PS-> I totally crashed out on the couch, and had a dream about driving a little tiny yellow car which didn't have enough tire pressure.)(Seriously, this car was like eighteen inches long.)

[EDIT: And Velvet just reminded me it's Guy Fawkes Day! So, either burn Guy Fawkes in effigy today, or plot to blow up Parliament. Your choice.]

OK, first up, movie day! Had the day off (as I worked last Saturday) and RQ checked out the movie listings, and found we could do a *double-feature*!

First up was of course The Incredibles which is pretty much the best superhero movie of the year, the best animated movie of the year, and probably one of the best movies of the year in general. Seriously, it's all that. Highly recommended, and looks astounding on the big screen.

After seeing one of the best of the year, though, we had to bookend that with one of the worst of the year. Thusly, we followed it up with Taxi. Because how could you go wrong with a Queen Latifah/Jimmy Fallon buddy cop movie! Oh, lordy, it was terrible. A couple funny parts, but not nearly enough to make it work. Coincidentally, not nearly enough Christian Kane either. Dorks who are more into cars might enjoy it more than me, and some of the chase scenes were pretty nifty. But, uh, yeah.

"President Bush isn't a conservative. He's a radical - the leader of a coalition that deeply dislikes America as it is. Part of that coalition wants to tear down the legacy of Franklin Roosevelt, eviscerating Social Security and, eventually, Medicare. Another part wants to break down the barriers between church and state. And thanks to a heavy turnout by evangelical Christians, Mr. Bush has four more years to advance that radical agenda."
-Paul Krugman

This Just In: Bush can't keep his campaign promises, mathematically.
