Well, today’s the big day. I’m off to get the keys to the new place and drop off the paint so as Tam can let her creative muse run wild while I’m at work and then tomorrow I get to join in and paint to my little hearts content. Hoooray!
Once the paint dries, then the fun stuff begins and all our time will be spent shuffling boxes from points a, b and c to point d. Then it will be the ever so fun task of going through all our collective accoutrements and deciding what all we have, what all we’re going to keep, who gets to throw out what, and who gets to share their toys. It’ll be grand fun.
I’ll take some pics of the new place when I get there today so as we have some before and after pics.
In the meantime and in between time. I leave you with a couple of different versions of a song that I’ve become readdicted to lately.
I’m moderately enthused to see this. I’ll be honest and say that I’m a little nervous about the look of the movie. I fear that it will be yet another butchering of Moore’s work but from what I can see there, it looks very faithful to the original and that querrelous auld git named Alan Moore will like it despite himself.
At first glance however it seems a little too glossy and shiny. In my mind’s eye, the Watchmen world was far darker and grittier but we’ll just have to wait and see. Casting, well I’m going to leave that one alone. Many people far, far nerdier than me have already spent hours in their batcaves and “command centers” designing the perfect dream cast of this movie and while I’ve dabbled here and there and have my opinions (*cough* Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Manhattan *cough*), I’m going to go in with an open mind and see how it works.
Speaking of comic adaptations. No, I still haven’t seen Dark Knight yet but I did see Hellboy II. It was a fun romp through cheesetastic cinema and funky creature designs from del Toro’s head. Personally I enjoyed it. It’s nothing immensely serious and overall I think I preferred the first one but this one is fun too.
Alright. Off to the land of showers and breakfasts I go.
