Light Blogging Advisory

Busy weekened. Going to take in HGTTG and scour my closing video store for movies I want to own on DVD. Probably nothing left by now... I'll end up buying I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and crap like that.

Oh, well. Hopefully they'll still have a few James Bond DVD's and (fingers crossed!) copies of the Star Wars trilogy. And there's always that category of movies that I like but that no one else seems to, like Starship Troopers and A Knight's Tale.

The Rosie O'Donnell liveblogging is provisionally on... but I feel it's kind of dangerous, because it's hard to make fun of the movie and the performances without also making fun of the condition itself, which I'd rather avoid. I'll see if I can manage to do it, but I am worried the whole thing will be a lot nastier-seeming than I intend.

Working on a drinking game for the event... although, yes, I know, it's Sunday. But opportunities to get shit-faced alone while typing into a computer just don't come along every day, do they?

No more than four or five times a week, tops.

What A Haul: Didn't get Big Trouble In Little China, but I did nab a lot of great DVD's the first wave of geeks missed: The Zero Effect, Midnight Run, True Lies, Shattered Glass, The Ref, Kate & Leopold (hey, it's good), An American Werewolf in London, The Paper, The King of Comedy, Red Rock West, The Cable Guy, and... best of all... a DVD the clerk said he was looking for and only didn't buy himself because he couldn't find it... the special collector's edition of The Thing.

Whoo hoo! Score, baby! Did not think that would be left on the racks.

Totally cleaned out of James Bond titles (except for crap like The Living Daylights and Die Another Day) and of course no Star Wars in sight.
