Out of the Blue

I finally got to see League of Extraordinary Gentlemen on the satellite. Ouch. And I like comic book movies... I can't imagine how people who don't share that taste felt about this one (and I don't want to imagine what Alan Moore must think). On a happier note, I got to see Hero in the theater the other day. A good Jet Li movie... who knew? But I still have a vexing movie situation facing me: I have a free pass to see Alien versus Predator, but it's actually not playing at the local cineplex(?), meaning to see it I will have to (gasp) break with my movie routine. That's pretty drastic, we'll just have to see how that goes.

"I did not bother to read the link"

Well I found it to be a very good read; although - or maybe "because", but that would be too arrogant/generalizing - I'm not American, this whole convention made me laugh about the nature of the speeches...it looked like a festival of blind idealism, a conference of contradictory statements, a fully irrational hype-a-thon where the current president was approached like some god and everybody acted like they just won the lottery.

However, it's always hard to put these (often biased) feelings apart and start an objective analysis about what has really been said: and in that respect I think it's a great article. But hey, what do I know, many times I just don't understand a certain culture (like, say, the chinese). Then I look at it, frown a bit, and then just discard it on the basis of lack of experience and knowledge of a certain area.
