    MT,
    We like your submission but don't think they'll get the point with the words so small. Could you please make them bigger?

    I also find the lack of colour troubling.

    That concept art looks more like fan art, all of it. The proportions on some of them are pretty poor. I never played the original Kid Icarus anyway, although I like the Minibosses' version of what I assume is the theme song.

    Yeah I'd bet also that it's fanart. Unless it is later on when he's a "fallen angel" I dunno, they said in the article that Nintendo wouldn't confirm or deny the game, so how'd they get the concept art anyways?

    Recommend me a book! Something for my mom. She read Kite Runner, No Country for Old Men, The Road, and is reading 1984 right now.

    I'm looking through best-seller lists right now but nothing really pops out.

    I am absolutely girl retarded. Someone please explain what is going on here, my ex (whom was the one who broke up) called me from a party the other day to see how I was. Today she calls again, to shoot the breeze and ask me what I was doing tonight, if I was going to the concert she arranged for the youth group she leads... I tell her unlikely, then she asks if I want to hang out afterwards. I tell her unlikely.

    Why is she doing this?! I WAS SO WELL!!!

    She's having second thoughts and having doubts that she can "do any better". The fact that that has happened is reason enough to stay the fuck away. It is too early to move into the "let's hang out and just be friends" phase, so yeah, keep saying unlikely is my advice.

    What Is The What (Dave Eggers) is mighty interesting so far. I picked it up this evening for a trip.

    A Confederacy Of Dunces (John Kennedy Toole) is alright too. More of a comedic type misadventure and a helluva lot different from the immersion of Cormac McCarthy...

    Of course, she could always read Suttree? by Cormac. It's damn close to poetic and is an amazing read with a pint. In fact, I picked it up after reading through it a bit at a bar.

    Vonnegut's books a really good, folksy sort of read too. Dead Eye Dick, Slaughter House Five, Timequake, or The Sirens Of Titan are amazing.


    I used to bar hop a shit ton last summer. Not so much now, but I actually made it a point to stop in a bar on karaoke night right before it ended, sang Rick Astley, and straight the Hell left. Fun times.

    A friend of mine just made me buy Sartre's Nausea. I just started reading it, so I can't comment too much but it's got my interest.
    I have to reiterate once more that Speed Racer was so incredible!
    That's pretty much what sold me the most on the film--it's dazzling use of color any and every chance it got.

    The plot looks iffy to me (and the car design), but I'm definitely gonna see it for it's very different cinematography.

    I found the first 7 minutes here (and the first 30 seconds of this clip pretty much sums how the tone and feel of the entire film) And additional 4 minutes is found here further showing off some of the eye-gasmic use of color.

    Speed Racer looks very bad and I can't help but point out that for whatever good points it may have it still fails to be Death Race 2000 and therefore bites.

    Well crud, another sleepless night. It's been at least a month since i've gotten a healthy amount of sleep, and I can't do shit about it.

    Insomnia really is the worst. I feel like i'm losing my mind.

    I had a mild case of insomnia for about 3 months back in my senior year of college, so I feel for ya. Sucked so hard. I actually think I might still be catching up on the lack of sleep I had for that three months. Some days I come home from work at like 5:30 and just crash till the next morning. Insomnia blows.

    The worst thing about insomnia is that you're dead tired all of the time, but you just can't sleep period. On good days you're just really fucking tired, but eventually your body gets a second wind or something and you're able to trudge through the day. At its worst, insomnia puts you in a state of perpetual suspended animation. You're not asleep, but you're not awake either. You simply exist, that that is it.

    It is a fate worse than death.

    I saw a new trailer for the Ed Norton Incredible Hulk movie before Speed Racer, and while I'm not entirely jazzed about that movie, at the end of the trailer when the Hulk title popped up, the score segued into like three bars of The Lonely Man theme from the original TV series.

    *That* got me pretty excited.

    Ed Norton is a decent actor, hopefully he can do the Hulk justice.

    Hahaha. I really need to get a video camera. My version of bjorks 'it's oh so quiet' was show-stopping. In one of the quiet bits, some guy blurted out with accidental loudness "WHAT THE FUCK IS HE DOING?" Kinda like in futurama how Leela is talking over the din and it all goes quiet just as she shouts "I HAVE STINKY BOOT RASH!"
