At some point last night at OtherJob I wrote an entire blog post in my head. I was pretty convinced it was a good one, too. Now it’s 10 AM Sunday morning and the only thing I’ve managed to achieve is a cup of coffee and a shower and I have no idea what in the world I might have gotten into my head to write about.
Let’s grab-bag a couple of things.
1) I think I’ve talked about this before, but I have no intention of purchasing or reading Go Set a Watchman. I never believed that she actually wanted the book published (this interview with her “editor,” a man who claims he doesn’t know if the book was ever edited and apparently doesn’t realize that planes exist, is terrifyingly shady) and from what I’ve seen from people who have read it, I stand by that decision.
2) The recent footage from Comic-Con from Batman V. Superman has, for the first time, made that movie at least a tiny bit interesting. I like the idea that Batman’s vendetta against Superman is rooted in losing people in Metropolis when Superman destroyed it. The shot of Bruce Wayne charging into the onrushing cloud of dust from the collapsed building is great. (Superheroes? Saving people? Crazy!) Unfortunately, Snyder’s Superman is still a useless, preening dick and in addition to the character assassination of Pa Kent in Super Powered Outer Space Alien 1 he’s now going after Ma Kent in 2. This continues to be deeply “no thank you” but at least there’s something interesting about it now.
Hmm. I guess two is a couple. I’m kind of going nuts over here; my lack of ability to be on vacation and the find-a-job stress is sorta starting to get to me a little. I expect to be found in the basement chewing on my underwear within a week or so.
