Random Nonsense

As you can see I’ve been tweaking away at the layout the last few days, nothing earth-shattering but I hope providing a more aesthetically pleasing read. Just changing the font for the column makes a big difference. I still haven’t found a picture I want to use at the top, I’m not sure what direction I’m going to go with that. As if you care.

Last night the WPT showed the Ladies Night tournament won by Isabelle Mercier, and here’s the obvious answer to the obvious question–yeah, I watched it. Actually, I taped it, as I actually had something else to do at the time. But to be on the safe side I put the tape in an airtight bag filled with argon gas. Don’t want anything to happen to it.

I actually had a hit last night that came from isabellemercier.com, which sent me into a tizzy (did she link to me? did she…write about me?) but when I tried the site I just get a blank black screen. Might not be operational yet. Or it doesn’t like Firefox. I’ll be checking back every 17 minutes or so.

I’m watching Reno 911 right now, and they’re trying to interrogate a guy who only speaks Japanese, and they’re using an interpreter who isn’t quite getting the point across…friggin’ hilarious.

Saw Revenge of the Sith last night. It was…good. In that it wasn’t as horrible as the previous two. It was pretty ludicrous, too. Natalie Portman goes through the fastest pregnancy in the history of the human species. She tells Anakin she’s pregnant, then we see her in a gown and it looks like she’s showing, then what seems like two days later she’s chasing Anakin down on this lava planet wearing a miniskirt and knee-high boots and not a hint of tummy bulge. And the next day she gives birth. Uh huh.

Poor Natalie. Her role consisted of two scenes beseeching Anakin “Don’t shut me out!”, she has a little scene in the Senate, she does the miniskirt-at-Mauna Kea thing. She does a lot of sitting on couches. She tells Obi-Wan “I know there’s good in him!” after he’s, like, committed genocide. For the second time. She may be royalty, she may be beautiful, but there’s no denying the fact that poor Padme is dumb as a friggin’ post.

What’s the fucking deal with the big iguana Obi-Wan was riding? I mean, there isn’t one Kawasaki dealership in the Republic? That had “action figure sellout” written in big red letters all over it. And the ending was ridiculous, I can’t believe Obi-Wan made the same mistake every James Bond villain makes. I really can’t believe that’s the best ending Lucas could come up with. Then again, after the previous two movies, the fact that Jar-Jar Binks didn’t have a speaking role is a big step forward. I wonder what Lucas will do next. If anything. If I had $3 billion or whatever I wouldn’t be wasting my time dreaming up cute and/or mildly disturbing aliens. I’d be…raising a mercenary army to expand my sphere of influence. Or something constructive like that.
