Out of the Blue

I got out to see the Bourne Supremacy yesterday... it really was satisfying to use the free pass from the Bourne Identity DVD to get in, but I would have enjoyed the movie even if I had to pay. I grew up a big fan of James Bond, but that series has gone pretty haywire over the years... in fact when it struck me during the movie how much more realistic Bourne is than Bond, it then occurred to me that the Spider-Man movies are also more grounded in reality than the Bond series is at this point. Enjoying the movies means I should probably avoid reading Ludlum's original Bourne books, though, as my buddy MrCoffee had trouble enjoying the first movie because he's such a big fan of the books... I hate when that happens.

Not in the last few hundred years, no...he's been fairly quiet, no matter what voices monkeyboy has heard in his head.

heheh... oh my....

i guess it just bothers me a bit when people use religion in political arguments. as for killing, God isn't quite the pansy some people may think. yeah, Jesus came around and taught that forgiveness and tolerance are the preferred means of doing business on this planet, but God never had any problem smiting those who offended or defied him. if Earth is God's MMORPG, he seems to have no problem kicking folks off the server when they decide to make up their own rules and hax0r his system!
