Sexual Predator on the Loose No, not Michael Jackson. This felon's name is Tim Burton, and he's very interested in raping my childhood. There are still no real details about Tim Burton's new version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, though the mind recoils to imagine gothic oompa loompas severing childrens' heads and riding waves of chocolate death out into the streets of some weird 1960's England. Okay, to be fair, all he's said so far is that he doesn't really like the original film. But good lord man, I've seen what Hollywood can do when they remake films that they ACTUALLY LIKED; now imagine what Burton will do with a remake of a film he doesn't like!

New Expression for Sale I don't drink, so this new expression I've devised has no use for me. Sadly, none of the drunkards on my floor are interested in using it either: "Why look for love in a bottle, when you can look for it in a keg?"

Matrix Revolutions Bleh. I guess it was okay, if you like watching the Gospels recreated with pistols and special effects. I don't think I've ever seen more hamfisted biblical allusions; they freaking had monks chanting on the soundtrack. I've heard some say that they're glad that the film answers nothing and that it leaves things up to the audience. However, there's a difference between a movie that makes people think and wonder about the ideas behind it and a movie that makes people fill in plotholes. Some stuff just wasn't explained, and I shouldn't have to read a 3 page long "The Annotated Matrix Abstract" to understand that if I enter a secret code on thematrix.com and buy the special matrix videogame I can view a 3 second cutscene that explains some detail of the trilogy that the filmmakers couldn't be bothered to include in the actual film. On the whole, I think I'd have been much more satisfied overall if the Wachowski's hadn't made any Matrix sequels and had just left things with the original film's more satisfying conclusion. Now to conclude with a description of the theater-going experience. 10 bucks a pop. A full 30 minutes of commercials and trailers. And after all that crap, a 2 minute message about how piracy hurts stuntmen. WE PAID OUR 10 BUCKS! Target your ads outside the theater!

On the lighter side of sports Quote from an AP article: "CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) -- Cincinnati Reds outfielder Dernell Stenson was found dead early Wednesday on a residential street after he was shot and apparently run over in a Phoenix suburb, police said. Chandler police said the death was being treated as a homicide." What else were they gonna treat it as? A suicide!?!?

Update Today one of my floormates (that's a person who lives on my floor of my dorm) competed in the dorm's American Idol rip-off. She got second-place, and I got a hoarse voice from cheering during the audience participation section. I now sound like a bad latenight radio call-in host trying to sound sultry. So I hope all the hep cats out there keep their dial turned to KRDU where the hits just keep on coming!
