Oh, I know what I forgot to mention last post.

Grimjack Trade Paperback Reprints.

All of them.

And a new limited series, with Ostrander and Truman.

Can you say, YAY? I knew you could.

ETA: Also, we saw a sneak preview of Harold and Kumar go to White Castle. Now, those of you who know me know that I have a very fine-line tolerance for lowbrow humor. (Even th slapstick in Shakespeare is my cue for a bathroom break).

I actually enjoyed this movie.

It's... well, it objectifies women, in the sort of way that 22-year-old men objectify women, but it was in character enough that it didn't annoy me at all, because I didn't get the feeling that the movie approved of that attitude, if that makes any sense? Especially given that some of the decisive action of the movie is taken at the end by one of the female characters, wherein she transforms herself from The Little Redheaded Girl to a real person with wants and needs, rather than just an object of male lust.

It kind of came across as the unholy lovechild of Still Smokin', Revenge of the Nerds, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, or maybe Better Off Dead. And I very much liked the way it dealt with issues of racism and bigotry, which was its primary focus, without ever becoming heavyhanded or unfunny.

...and apparently we're going to be in the commercial, as the test audience. There goes the rest of my soul--
