Flying solo tonight. Nathan is at an overnight cousins birthday party for one of our nieces and all three of the kids wanted their moms along.
‘Tis the season for TV show cancellation announcements. I tend to enjoy this time of year because I like to see how much of my life I can get back each week by not having to watch old shows.
Word dropped late tonight that Hollywood found its new Batman... Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame. The backlash has been quick and severe.
It drives me crazy when an organization (that will go unnamed) asks for an "optional" donation as part of a registration process, but, in order to do literally anything within that org, you have to give them exactly the amount they request as optional. It's clearly "mandatory," so call it a "fee" already. Don't insult my intelligence. Or my bank account.
As noted by Eve on GeeksofDoom.com, yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of the release of the film The Crow. If you haven't seen it, the film is about a musician named Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) who, one year after he and his fiancee are killed by a gang of criminal scum on Devil's Night, is resurrected by a crow to exact vengeance on those who wronged him. It is dark. It is gritty. It is brutal. It is emotional. It is gorgeous.
I wonder if I can get this done in time to post it at 7:19, because that would be geeky cool. I didn’t get the cool sequencing last week.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and grandmas and aunts and caregivers and whomever else is out there serving in our hearts as a "mum."
