Kein Mitleid Für Die Mehrheit

My Easter weekend was all right. I went down to Tommy's place to see The Incredibles and Phone Booth, of which I enjoyed both but greatly preferred the former. This may, however, be comparing apples to oranges.

Still, Incredibles was the sort of movie I'd take my kids to if I had kids (heavens forbid), if only because it's the rare family movie that doesn't flat-out bore adults to tears. For those of you with the DVD - see Jack-Jack Attack. For those of you without the DVD - see it anyway. Your ribs will never forgive you, however.

Phone Booth, on the other hand, was thought-provoking and interesting, but occasionally seemed a bit too long. I get the feeling that it's a movie that not everybody will like as much as I did, which, of course, is perfectly reasonable.

Other culture stuff: new Garbage album is out in about two weeks. Bleed Like Me is the title, and it's supposed to go back to their earlier hard-rocking oeuvre, backing oiff from the experimental beautifulgarbage. Even though I haven't heard the released signle yet (silly me) I'm still looking forward to it.

Also: VNV Nation is coming to town in May, I'm told. Barring disasters or poverty, I am so there.

We have a visitor: Mom's high school sweetheart is staying with us for the next three weeks while they catch up and start talking about the grandiose plans they're making. Since I might have been posting this from Atlanta if their grandiose plans had gone through last time, I'm at best cautiously optimistic.

I don't mind the guy, really. Not that I like him, but for now he's still new. And aside from his bizarre habit of locking the bathroom door and then exiting through the side door without opening the front one, he hasn't done anything to piss me off excessively. Not that it matters anyway. He'll be gone in three weeks, and after that I won't be likely to see him until and unless he shows up again to get everybody and especially their goddamned dog out of my hair.

It's curious how dissimilar we are on a lot of these categories, eh?
