Please, SOMEONE stop them

Theyre making a movie of IronMan, right? Great idea. Two problems, though: Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark, aka IronMan. Terrence Howard, who was in Hustle & Flow and other useless bunk movies, is WAR MACHINE. HOW DO YOU PICK A WEENIE TO PLAY WAR MACHINE?!

The name alone implies a brawny guy with a history of violence who lives only for the destruction of his foes, and they cast an actor with a voice like Michael Jackson. It becomes more and more evident to me that marketers have no connection with the people they market to.

In better news: They're making a movie of John Carter of Mars, one of the great epics of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Maybe...just maybe...they wont screw it up. Remember the last time they made a movie based on Burroughs' writings? It was Tarzan. The kids movie. Oy.

Time for some updates

Its been a while, I admit. I would say things have been hectic, but they REALLY havent been--I just havent had the proper motivation to blog. Rejoice, good people, for I have returned. Like MacArthur, minus the cool pipe.

Unforunately for me, I have to work on Thanksgiving. This is what I like to call "corporate whoring". Dell requires a skeleton crew at UPS over the holiday; this translates to "find the only guy than can run the operation back to front and make him sit on his duff". Appropriately, all my striving for excellence and trying to learn other tasks to further myself have backfired in my face. At least Ill make double pay so I can afford all the pistols Ill be buying in two months. Speaking of which...

Now that the Democrats have Congress over their knee, I had better get cracking on buying the exotic firearms that I want. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Feinstein, Kennedy, Conyers and the others will try to pass more bogus anti-Second Amendment legislation. We made such solid progress, too...

A new hope...

America has spoken. The people of the United States have cast their votes in the direction of misguidance, useless legislation, open borders, bigger government, gay marriage, gun bans, and guys who drive their girlfriends into ditches and leave them to die.

Get ready for digression.
