… and there’s nothing to write about. Sure, I could fill 500 words with wonderment at Nathan Fillion rocking the space cowboy look on last night’s “Castle” … but that’d be a little on the desperate side, wouldn’t it?
Instead, I will take the slightly less desperate way out and offer you a few cool things to see on the interwebs today:
At his blog, Some Came Running, Glenn Kenny yearns for the good old days when PG movies had random boobies; turns out the new Blu-ray disc of “Logan’s Run” is his Proustian madeleine.
Over on Switched, a dog chews an Xbox controller and buys its owner 5,000 Xbox Live points — which the owner then uses to buy a new controller. There is a cautionary tale in there somewhere.
In the land of Boingboing, Cory Doctorow discovers Dr. Monster’s marvelous Scooby-Doo/zombie apocalypse mash-up. (I forgive you for loving “Zombieland”, Cory. You just don’t know any better.)
And Craig Simpson of The House Next Door considers five great films about childhood, including among them Steven Soderbergh’s excellent “King of the Hill”, still unreleased on DVD in North America. I actually had the chance to ask Soderbergh about that when we spoke earlier this year; he said it’s coming, eventually, but no one’s in too much of a hurry about it.
Which is a shame, really; if Sony can resurrect “Night of the Creeps” (and on Blu-ray, even), then surely Universal can spit out a critically acclaimed catalogue title from the director of “Out of Sight”, “Erin Brockovich” and “Traffic” …
