Oddly sleepy, so expect brevity.
Four more years! Four more years! You're asking yourself right now "what the hell? He's always been a critic of G. W. Bush." And you'd be right. And I spent most of today disliking the man and his policies. Then I got my notice of tax refund. I'm getting a $300 check in next week's mail, as a result of his tax cut. Woo-hoo! Now, I reserve the right to go back to disliking him in the morning, and I know the tax cut probably wasn't he best idea, but…$300!
Trust me, this is money that will definitely go into stimulating the economy.
Saw "Jurassic Park III", directed by Joe Johnston. I had fun. Tèa Leoni does shrieking hysterics better than nearly anyone, and the dinos, themselves, were cool. I greatly preferred this one to the second one, and it may even rank higher on my list than the first, when all is said and done. See, I had a problem with the first two-I read (and loved) both the books. And what I liked about them was all the little sciencey bits that read really great, but would have been, at best, deadly boring onscreen and at worse totally unfilmable. "JP3", however, isn't directly based on any book, which is actually kind of freeing, allowing the filmmakers to tell a fairly original story. As I said for "Pearl Harbor", it's formula. But it's well-done formula. And sometimes that's all that matters.
Today's Link Of The Day is David Icke's site. Icke is an English ex-soccer player who's turned his attention to the much larger problem of the human race's enslavement by a race of transgalactic lizards. Icke is a true believer in this cosmology, and argues rather eloquently for it. Check it out: http://www.davidicke.com
