Yeah, I’m getting the impression that the rest of the country…

…may not be treating the shutdown with the same basic reverence that many inside the Beltway are treating it with.

Then again, for all I know everybody on Capitol Hill is explicitly trying to roll to disbelieve right now.

I see that Aaron Williams is still bitter about I Am Legend.

Can’t say that I blame Williams much, but I understand that it’s not completely Will Smith’s fault: I Am Legend had a proper ending, but the focus groups hated it. Which is something that I totally think should be the focus groups’ problem, but I didn’t get the tie-breaking vote there.

“This is too evil a concept to fail.”

…Dear God in Heaven, but it is.  I mean, it could even be something that you could sell in real life.

I’m posting this instead of Tweeting it for the benefit of people who want to offer similarly horrified admiration. Or mere horror.

Death Valley land-battleships on monster-truck wheels?

…OK.  FineYes, I’d go see that.

And I’m not g0ing to feel guilty about that, either.  I’m a philistine, and proud of it; and while I have absolutely nothing against people who go to the movies because they want to see something that will make them think, I am not one of those people.  I think quite enough all day as it is, thanks; when I go into a film typically I want to turn off my brain for a bit.

So low-brow me there, dude.

Today’s Full Frontal Nerdity:

“It’s a good distraction for the guards.  Also, we hate mimes.”

…Not much else to say there, really.

Trepanning!

In a webcomic!

(pause)

Look, sometimes I put this stuff up strictly for me.

QotD, Full Frontal Nerdity edition.

On the perils of allowing yourself too much identification with NPCs:

It’s a dangerous game to love that which has stats and therefore can be killed.

Actually, that last panel of FFN has another good line, too.  It’s one of the better webcomics out there; a shame that it’s just once a week.

QOTD, Full Frontal Nerdity edition.

BEHOLD YOUR ARTICULATED PLASTIC GOD, MY METAL MINIONS!”

…Well, it’s what I would have done.  And clearly Aaron Williams would have done, too.

Well, the prequel trilogy, at least.

Considerably messier, but then the prequel trilogy could have stood some extra messiness.  Heck, this would have been an improvement.
