I mark my return from the page of shame (providing Xanga’s update thing is tickety-boo)
with an entry worthy of song. But not like a top 40 song, or a classic like ‘Hotel California’ or ‘Stairway to Heaven’. More like one of those songs that you like the first couple of times you listen to a CD, forget about a couple of weeks later, and then when you come back and listen to the CD a couple of years later you’re like, “Oh yeah. That’s a good song.” One of those.
I’ve made the remark several times that 3 seems to be the magic number in movies this summer, with Mission Impossible 3, X-Men 3, and the third Spiderman movie all seeing the light of day at some point in the next couple of months. I’ve heard it argued that Hollywood has sequel-itis- a lot of what’s coming out is sequels or remakes of older movies. I’d imagine this is something the MBA sorts (Masters of Buisness Administration) love- established franchise, existing script, and in some cases, you don’t need to make a lot of new characters. As a moviegoer, I’d like to see a little more originality.
(So what movies have I seen recently? X-Men 3 and MI:3. And I’ll probably hit up the Spiderman and Pirates of the Carribean sequel at some point. Yes sirree, I’m sticking to my guns here. Or maybe all the original stuff just sucks.)
‘Canes in 6. Mavericks in 7.
That done, I will leave you with what might be the greatest thing you will ever see. Until someone else puts up a Youtube link, anyway.
