Malicious Bitch movie reviews!
Category: Linkage … TV, Film, & DVDs

Those of you looking to hit the cinema this July 4th but need to be told what to see because you're too chickenshit to decide for yourself and deal with the consequences of your choice (or for those of you who just enjoy hearing what other folks have to think about current film releases ;)) can rejoice, 'cause Becky's Malicious Bitch column, A Fool's Gesture, has two new movie reviews for you! In addition to the Beckster's take on Spielberg's War of the Worlds, there's a She Said/He Said review of Geroge A. Romero's Land of the Dead -- with yours truly voicing the He Said portion of the installment! Enjoy! :mrgreen:

By the way, if you missed my take on the other two releases I saw this year, those are here. And of course I've written up a number of films and other visual media in the Spectare section of Scary-Crayon. 🙂 Ja!

Crazy days and dead elephants.
Category: Linkage

Man, that new job is hectic as hell -- I hardly had time to even check my e-mail, let alone write any blog entries. If I'd known it was going to be this bad, I would've asked for more than my old salary! It's crazy.

Speaking of crazy:

The 26-year-old elephant Ibala went into labor. But her contractions lessened. A veterinarian induced labor. But an ultrasound determined the calf had died. It could take up to a year for the elephant to deliver the dead calf.

A year to deliver a corpse? That's just nasty. I think I will write a story about it. Anyway, you can read the entire news report here.

And now I've got to get to bed so I can be up in three hours. Ja!

Here's a tip...

If you ever eat cheese puffs from a bowl, be sure to wash that bowl thoroughly before using it for cereal. I didn't, and right now I taste cheese puffs in my milk. It's weird.

Expect to see that combination again in a Scary-Crayon Random Lunch someday.

Oh, and here's a link from Skeletoncrew that was too hilarious not to pass on -- It's not work safe, but it sure is funny!

For some reason I'm really exhausted, so I'm going to turn in early tonight (yes, 12:30 AM is early for me), but I didn't want to leave y'all with nothing. So here are a few odd links I've been saving:

Reprinted in the Mutant Frog Travelogue: Princeton U. bans harassment suspect.

Linked in the Freak Girl's Pew: Mmm... butterfinger.

Oh, and I've added a category listing for such linkage in the future, but no, I'm not going back and marking all of the old posts as such. I know, I know. You'll deal.

Anyway, should have another SC update for you soon enough -- possibly a new food piece, and there are some wild game reviews on the horizon as well. For those of you who are fans of the bookstore Hot Flashes, don't worry -- even though next Friday will be my last day at the bookstore, I've still got enough material to keep them going for at least another few weeks. And then they will be no more! But new entertainments will appear in their stead. Ja.
