Sabres, don't quit now.

We're down. But we're not out.

And Brett Hull can kiss my ass.

Zombies get political.

For those of you not journalists here, a little insight into the profession:

For every fun or quirky story you read/hear, there's a journalist behind it that had twice as much fun covering the story.

Case in point: Every year Zombies have a march in Somerville. That's right. The undead. In the middle of spring, because even the recently deceased appreciate good weather.

Check it out (This story done by one of my colleagues). http://www.townonline.com/townonline/homepage/x417434860

And if you don't feel like reading the whole story and such, just watch the people protesting the zombies:

I give Spiderman 3 2.5 out of five beers.

I mean, it was good, but not Batman Begins good. Honestly they didn't spend enough time on any of the "new" characters; though I did like how the internal conflict/MJ conflict was set up. But honestly, they could've taken out Sandman entirely and used that time to develop Venom more, or even Gwen Stacy (reduced in the film to a bit part, in a disappointing underutilization of a character a la Bane in Batman Unlimitied or whatever the hell the worst comic book movie ever was called. And yes, I'm counting "Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD" starring Hasslehoff.)

Saturday mornings

The only thing that will change when Marcy and I have kids one day is that we won't be the only ones watching cartoons.

Spandex ballet

A woman I work with sez men need to shave their legs if they're going to wear spandex.
Well, I have "bike shorts", which I guess are spandex-ish but they're got padding on the butt, right? So is that spandex?
Bottom line: Ain't shavin' my legs.

Spider Man 3 today

Will it suck as bad as everyone says? Tune in, Spidey fans, when you'll here Bryan say:

"Hey, that movie was ------ than -----!"

Watchmen: A review

Who’s watching the watch---

A recurring theme to this graphic novel is that the above phrase is never fully shown. It’s always partially obscured, or just off the panel, so that we never actually read the phrase, which was based on an old Latin saying.
I mention this because if you go googling the watchmen, or look at the many annotated scripts out there (more on that in a minute), you’ll see people are always pointing this fact out first.
Here’s what I got from my first read:
- You’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t.
- The book’s “villain” posits that the only way to save humanity is to destroy it (or at least some of it). So it’s hard not to draw comparisons to Sept. 11. And it was strangely prophetic in its depiction of the world coming together.
- Realistic omnipotence – is there such a thing? If you were given all the power in the world, and all the knowledge, would you cease caring about taking part in humanity? I’ve been stuck on this one for awhile.
- It takes a certain type of person to go around wearing a costume all day. My sister was Ernie (of Bert n Ernie) once. Nuff said.

That’s all for now. I’m going to read it again and post another review, one a little more in-depth. There’s just too much to say about it all at once.
