elijah

another saturday night

I'll open with an apology for not replying to comments, and maybe close with one too. Now, craftily sidestepping the fact that I have nothing much to say, I offer other people's words.

The movie is of an unbelievable badness; it brings back clichés you didn't know you knew... You can't get angry at something this stupefying; it seems to have been made by trolls. -- Pauline Kael on Song of Norway

In other news, I saw Fantastic Four today with sherrold. Fun, very fun. The ultimate fluffy popcorn movie, with surprisingly good dialogue, acting, and character development. The browful and broody Julian McMahon I of course love, no matter how over the top he is. Michael Chiklis gave beautiful angst, Ioan grew on me, and dude--who the hell is Chris Evans? I went in thinking that I was going to hate him and his character too, but he was wonderful.

Jessica Alba was Jessica Alba.

So, yeahhhhhhh...I got nothing. Oh, except that I've been thinking of Rodney. I've been thinking of Rodney and *Ronan*. *ultimate facepalm* What are you, the priesthood, that I confess this to you? Oh shut up. This is why they call it the *special* hell.

And in closing, comments, apology apology blah yadda blah (I mean that sincerely), and here in no particular order are songs from my playlists of the moment, for which I'd give you guys the files if I weren't at home on dial-up.
