Happy holiday weekend, peeps. It's early on the Memorial Day Weekend, and I've already cleaned the homestead, walked a couple of miles and finally caught up on on all the electronic and snail mail from my few days Out Of Town. Expect some frequent bloggy goodness over the holiday. As I quaff the first of many light beers, here are some random nuggets to chew on:
Controversial comic book costume changes. I liked the "Venom" black Spidey uniform (except for how it was presented, story-wise, in the disappointing 3rd movie) and Iron Man's is understandable, with so many "Mark" versions. (For a great graphic look at the various Iron Man unis, click here). And I just saw Iron Man, and it rocked my world. GREAT comic book movie. The final throw down was a bit pedestrian, but fantastic performances from all involved (RD Jr., The Dude, Gwyneth, Terrance Howard) made this a solid A. But Sue Storm's alternate costume is kinda trampy, no?
Good news for fans of Logan, Goran and their partners: USA has ordered more Law & Order: CI.
No wonder the country is going to hell on a sled. 12.5% of those teaching our (your) youth are morons.
Speaking of which, more evidence (like you needed more?) that Einstein was a smart dude.
It's baseball season. Time to enjoy some classic Ricky Henderson quotes!
A bizarre list of "How To" books. I think I would start with #9, and #10 would be helpful with #5 (though #2 would have probably preceded that one), but you would then be acquainted with #7, and eventually wish for #4.
Ever heard of "Batting Stance Guy?" If not, check out this interview. And you fellow Braves fans will get a big kick out his take on the hometeam.
You gotta have priorities, ya know.
Bobby Cox is an icon and steady hand on the wheel of the Braves, but good god, I love Jim Leyland.
What kind of bet do you have to lose to have this happen? And Flipper looks stoked, man.
Lord knows I lived through the title of this post. But DListed's adorable nickname for the featured Mensa member always makes me giggle, for a few reasons. Speaking of which, I'm surprised I didn't pay to have these moved. But some other poor (or soon to be) dumb bastard did.
How 'bout we cleanse the pallet with a nice story about everyone's favorite lesbian witch and shopping-addicted wife?
And since it's the last day of the workweek, here's a Trek look at the 7 types of bad bosses and how to survive them.
Enjoy your holiday, and have a beer or 15 with a loved one!
