Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Work... busy... must... post... grraah!

Game Girl Advance offers us some perspective on the 'hot coffee' debates.

Over at McSweeney's, Eric Feezell provides us with a list of "Twelve Sequels to Dances With Wolves That, Due to Monetary Constraints, Were Never Produced."

We rented Constantine a few days ago and consensus was, "pretty--very pretty at times--but ultimately limp and underwhelming." Which is kind of a shame, really. Although I'm not as familiar with the canon as I probably should be, the Hellblazer comics upon which the movie was based were pretty darned good.

With cynicism honed to an art, John Constantine was a quintessentially British character, wandering through the ruins of empire and history. Keanu Reeves (or just about any American, for that matter) is a poor substitute for, say--a young Sting, upon whom the original comic character was based.

If you're a fan of the comic, it's best to envision the move as an Elseworlds tale: a "what might have been," if you will.

It is pretty, though.
