In other news, my sweet wife, The Dread Dormomoo, and I went on a date last night. (Keep an ear out for a Loud Trumpet...the fact that we made time to go out may be a portent of The End.)
We went to see "Pacific Rim". If I may make a mild suggestion:
GO SEE PACIFIC RIM!!!!!
It was quality film-making, with the barest minimum of bad language. Period. (I mean, it has Ron Perlman in it....)
It is the cleanest movie I have seen in forever. The writing is crisp, the visual effects are superb (You will believe giant monsters and giant robots can exist!) For them wot this is important to, there is no nudity, no sex, the only flowing juices come from badly injured monsters. For those who think violence IS pr0n, well, you're out of luck...go see Pippi Longstocking or summat.
If you are sensitive to LOUD, stuff cotton-wool in your shell-like.
Go see this movie. This is NOT a request! If you like SF, see it. If you like horror, see it. If you like Godzilla movies, SEE IT! If you like antagonists becoming buddies, see it. If loyalty and honor bring a tear to your eye, see it.
I hope that I am clear on this. SEE IT!!!
Then lobby Congress for funding to build Jaegers. You never know when you're gonna need a giant robot. It's for DEFENSE!!
(See how adroitly I steered this back to politics? Carry on!)
