Scorpion

going to be catching up all day today

Silent Hill was pretty decent. We caught the late show, which probably helped. The movie was very atmospheric and creepy, I was quite pleased. They didn't even overuse the gore. There were some problems in the last third of the movie, but overall I'd say it's well worth it if you want a creepy horror movie. Just go see the latest show you can get tickets to.

And summer is coming, which means lots of...

Trailers:
* The Da Vinci Code - Even if I had never heard of it before, I feel safe in saying this trailer wouldn't inspire me to go see the movie.
* The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift - Nope, not kidding. This time with that guy from Jarhead. No, the other guy.
* Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Longer trailer, and lookin' nice. Sign me up.
* Mission: Impossible 3 - I'm still entertained by the trailer, despite my antipathy to giving any more money to Mr. Cruise.
* Crossover - Underground basketball with Wayne Brady. Maybe, as Selene likes sports movies. Looks well shot, but that might just be the trailer editor.
* Pulse - Imagine if they made a White Noise 2, but it actually looked OK. We'll see.
* See No Evil - Shortest trailer ever. And... it looks like a boring horror movie we've already seen a zillion times. 'Cept the bad guy is played by some guy named Glen Jacobs.

Post a link to your entries on this day six months ago, one year ago, and 2 years ago. And 3 years ago. And 4 years ago. Whufta.

Also, my questions meme/quiz/whatever rages on, feel free to hop in.

I'm feeling vaguely out of sorts. Might not be focused enough for City of Heroes tonight. Hmmm.

[UPDATE: I'm currently rockin' out to an online radio station a co-worker found, which just followed "Oh Mandy" with "Hollaback Girl." -1258 ET]

"...Everything we're hearing this morning about what happened inside the courthouse yesterday is coming from Rove's camp, and is therefore presumptively spin. Even if Rove's people were out-and-out lying, grand jury secrecy rules would prohibit special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald from publicly setting the record straight."

"Maybe some people are a little intimidated by the way the White House plays the soft-on-terror card. Whatever the reason, I worry that we're not as worried as we should be."
-National Journal

"Unfortunately, far from defending the Constitution, President Bush has repeatedly sought to strip out the limits the document places on federal power."
-Cato Institute report

"...The biggest evil of blogs is that first flaw, blogging's original sin: the discounting of news-gathering in favor of news analysis. Bloggers are forever telling us how easy journalism is, yet very few of them have ever really practiced it."

THIS JUST IN

"Rush Limbaugh was arrested Friday on prescription drug charges, with his attorney saying he has reached a deal with prosecutors that will eventually see the charges dismissed if he continues treatment for drug addiction."

Speaking of quotes...

"Too many whites are getting away with drug use... Too many whites are getting away with drug sales... The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."
-Rush Limbaugh, Oct. 5, 1995
