I saw Iron Man
this morning. My geek meter hit the roof. The acting, effects, story, writing, direction - everything - all superbly executed. Of all the comic based films I’ve seen, I have to put this one toward the top.
See it now, and make sure you stay through the credits.
I have a new online addiction. It is called Bitstrips
. With Bitstrips, you can design you own characters and place them in your own comic strip. I've been designing characters, including a few of you LJ friends, all day long. Check it out, sign up, and let's strip together.( Read more...Collapse )

Damn Dirty Ape
is dead. He was a decent actor 25 years ago. No one could say “damn” like Heston. As he became more politically active in the 90’s, however, he showed his transparent self-serving hypocrisy. I do not mourn his passing.
This is a test post to make sure I have the RSS feed and other groovy goodies correct as I attempt to resurrect emsoc.org
. This re-animation stuff is tougher than they make it look in the movies.

All Muxed Up
I've been seeing these pop up all over the place. Since I'm such a tagalong, I figured I'd make one up myself. Ladies and Gentlemen, my first muxtape
1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions or otherwise "looking it up."Now with added hints!
So. The other night I had a rare long chat with my mother. I told her about a friend of mine who used to live in Tallahassee. My friend had asked me how I enjoyed living in the "asshole of the country." I replied that if one were to be genuine with their country to body analogies, I live in the taint of the U.S.
I thought it was funny, and I figured my mother would agree. The only problem is that my 60 year-old mother had no idea what the "taint" is. So for the rest of the conversation, I had the dubious task of explaining to my mother what a taint is - not one of my prouder moments.
