Dave!Rather than bitch about ABC's lame attempt at cobbling together a "new" episode of Lost out of old footage tonight... or be all upset that Veronica Mars found out Logan may have provided the drug used to dope and rape her the previous year (NOOOOOooo!)... or lament the fact that I haven't found the time to play Star Wars Lego for Xbox... I think I'll just take a look at what's new around the internet.

Smith on Sith. Uber genius writer/director Kevin Smith has blogged about his screening of the final Star Wars flick... Revenge of the Sith, And really dug it. Some might discount his opinion because he's working on a new Star Wars television show for Lucas, but I've never known Kevin Smith to sugar-coat anything. If the movie was a turd, he'd call it a turd. The fact that he liked it bodes very well for the film and my potential enjoyment of it.

MacroAdobemedia. Over at Daring Fireball, there's a nice take on the Adobe/Macromedia merger that brings the current situation into vivid relief. I am still trying to figure out at what point their bug-ridden, bloated software will implode to the point of unuseability. It seems to be half-way there right now. With Macromedia out of the picture, who will be that next brave soul who picks up the baton and enters the race?

Batmania. It would be hard to do any worse that the absolute Bat-induced crap-fest that Joel Schumacher unleashed upon the world with Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. And from that perspective, the new Batman Begins film looks utterly brilliant. The fact that Katie Holmes is in it is just the icing on the cake. You can watch the new trailer right here.

Katie Cruise? Speaking of Katie Holmes... have you heard that she is dating Tom Cruise?? Oh the humanity!

Nike ID. I keep seeing advertisements for the new "Nike ID" site where you can customize a pair of shoes just for you. Most of the color combinations are kind of lame but, after a while, I came up with a cool black and gray shoe that has a nifty lime-green swoosh that I might actually considering buying. My second choice was a red and blue "Spider-Man" type thing, but I'd never wear them.


Shirt Me! Well, orders have finally calmed down a bit at the Artificial Duck Store, and I'll be placing my order tomorrow morning. Hopefully this means I'll get the shirts and start shipments early next week!

    Blade Trinity!!!!!!

    Ha-Ha!! Got one….

    At the end of LOST when the bald guy — his name escapes me — is kneeling on the burried tank they’re trying to open … a light comes on from within the tank … and his faith is restored.

    Had we seen that before? It was new to me, but sometimes I’m doing other things when I should be paying closer attention to the TV.

    Knowing the trouble he has with his legs (now), I thought it was interesting that the first scene we saw him was looking up from his feet with him on his back. He’s looking down at his toes and wiggling them slowly. I’m sure the first time I saw this I was guessing that he was checking to see if he could still walk. It now appears he was marvelling at the fact that he could walk again.

    Boone will be back next season in flashbacks. (Maybe I read that here.)

    Sorry your night of TV sucked ass but I have to say Alias rocked and I even watched my first episode of Eyes. I really liked it, good choice Dave!!

  4. theMike says:

    Cool, can’t wait for my shirt. Lost didn’t TiVo for me last night. Hope I didn’t miss anything too critical.

  5. Dave2 says:

    Ryan Reynolds being a smart-ass was (sadly) the best part of Blade Trinity. Not even Jessica Biel could save that mess.

    I’m guessing Lost didn’t TiVo because it wasn’t new… it was a clip show?

    All scenes had been in previous episodes. The light glow from the hatch for Locke was at the end of the last episode (where Boone died).

    Eyes was okay, but a little boring when compared to the previous three episodes. I am still loving this show, however.
