How I Knew

I know I’ve alternated between having my sights firmly fixed on my naval, and/or just gone all out and had my head up my bum for some time.  A Lot of Crap™ has snuck up on on me.   I have been shocked.   I have been startled.   I have been overcome.

But seriously, how did I not know?   How did I miss this?   How did I NOT SEE THIS COMING??????

I mean, I pretty much live for this geeky kind of shit.  How did I not hear about a live action version of Speed Racer coming to a theater near me until just yesterday?

There’s only one explanation.    There’s only way this could ever possibly happen (aside from the afore mentioned self-involvement brought on by terrible loss, grief, stress, and loneliness).    The only way this could be is that my NerdNetwork™ has let me down.

I’m looking at you, Mr. My-Mom-Reads-Your-Blog!!!!!    (Hi Mom!)

This is how I knew it had all gone too far, and I need to snap the hell out of it.

Movies With Stuff Blowing Up

I don’t normally go for action flicks so much. I do go for John Cusack, though. So, I may just go and see this one. It seems like a redux of his character from Grosse Pointe Blank, as he’s playing a hit man. His handler is even being played by sister Joan, again. And then there’s Hillary Duff, who I have a weird affinity for, even though I shouldn’t. Does it make it OK if I’m also drawn to Ben Kingsley, who also stars.

Anyway, the movie is called “War, Inc.” and it’s due in theaters this July.

Here’s the trailer.
