Too busy to blog
well, not exactly, but i am pretty busy. Big project delivery, much scrambling, not enough time to blog (properly).
So i leave you with a few random thoughts for today:
- X3: The Last Stand was awesome, a truly excellent final chapter in the trilogy. Frasier was surprisingly good as Beast. I am very disappointed that Gambit was not in the trilogy, other than a name on a screen in X2. I am mostly disappointed because Josh Holloway (Sawyer in Lost) was offered the part and turned it down because it was too close to his TV role. He would have made an awesome Gambit. Also, those of you who did not stay to the end of the credits are lamers, because there was a little somethin’-somethin’ there for people with real staying power.
- On the topic, my special mutant power is to remember the names of actors, no matter how obscure they are. My kryptonite is that if there is plumber’s crack in the room, i will always be looking in that exact direction at the exact time of exposure.
- sort of on the subject of mutants, on the subject of evolution, the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth, and the 150th anniversary of the publishing of On the Origin of Species in coming up in 2009, and the Smithsonian isn’t sure it’s going to do anything for it. It’s afraid it might offend people. Seriously, WTF?
- and speaking of evolution makes me want to go and see what Bill Dembski is up to. Let’s see, trotting out that tired old argument about how SETI is also looking for intelligent design and no one questions their science. I don’t need to answer the question, it’s been answered before. Oh, and the origin of the argument? Bill, in 1998. Fast forward to 2005 and he’s till asking the same old tired questions that have been refuted over and over. When will he learn a new trick?
Yeah, i’m going home now.
