Out of the Blue

Well, I'm back at the BlueTower for a short stay, as after getting in late after my grandmother Mimi's funeral I'll be heading out at dawn to attend the burial (I haven't heard why the two events were not on the same day, but it's fairly unusual from my experience, so I assume there's probably a good reason for this). Anyway, the services was simple but sincere, and I take some comfort in my belief that it proceeded much the way she would have wanted it to.

I don't expect to get in as late today as I did last night, and any patience you can muster for the delayed updates is sincerely appreciated.

about the upcoming movie Underworld as I am?
http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/underworld/

I mean, it just looks cool. Geeks like me like Vampires, I like Vampire the Masquerade, and the thought of a dark goth, we kick ass like we're the Xmen, Vampire movie in which Vampires battle Werewolves just filled me with much glee, joy and happiness when I saw the trailer.

Ofcourse, when I saw the trailer, and dutifully noted September 19th as a day on which I would NOT go do anything else that evening besides see aforementioned movie, I also thought to myself "It sure looks a lot like World of Darkness. I wonder if White Wolf is involved."

As it turns out, White Wolf is not, and now they're suing Sony.
Now, suing Sony is not something that comes as a surprise to anyone, as I believe Sony generally spends at least several hours of its day in court. In this case, however, I wish White Wolf would just let it slide. I mean, come on, even if it's stolen, it's only going to bring publicity to your product. I realise copyright is a big thing right now, with even Senators feeling they have a right to it, but if this lawsuit blocks this movie from ever coming out, I somehow have this nasty feeling that White Wolf is seriously going to bite themselves in the ass when they watch their product sales suddenly take a big fucking dip.

One of the few movies this year that had me genuinely interested, and now it might not go through. Bah.

(For those interested in the complaint, I'll link to PA's copy of it. I'm sure it'll be a nice change for PA to have THEIR server tubed for once.)
