Ketchup? Catch Up? Catsup?

Jason and I saw The Watchmen on Monday. It was spectacular. At nearly 3 hours, it could have sheered down a few of the artsy, sybolic scenes...but I understand what they were going for none the less. It stays pretty true to the graphic novel and it's visually stunning.

(Prepare yourselves)
I found out that they are re-making Never Ending Story, a re-make (or sequel) to Labyrinth, Nightmare on Elm Street (with Billy Bob Thornton as Freddie), and an in talks to create another addition to the Ghostbusters series. If 1959 claims to have the day the music died, then 2009 must surely lay claim to the death rattle of the film industry. Haven't we learned anything from the previous remakes (and subsequent flops) of iconic films? Whats next? A re-make of Karate Kid with Wilmer Valderrama? Ah Jeez...

Tuesday night Jason, Dave and I went to Cincy and hung out with Heather, Chad, and Beale. Three awesome friends who I don't see anywhere near enough. This was post drinking a cluster eff of adult beverages that really had no business being consumed together. Mid-day hangover?....Kinda

I'm going to be doing all or part of the beer & wine tasting at the deli saturday, depending on when I get finished with my tattoo appointment. Everyone should come up, or down, or whatever and get your pre-St Patty's day imbibing on. Speaking of which...I need to go stock up on Jameson. It's going to be a long day.

Until then I'll catch everyone on the flip side.

Karate Kid is on the remake list.

Lab and Dark Crystal have had squeals in the works for a while.

I just now got your Dancing In The Dark cover comment. I've actually heard that before. It's amazzzing. The Crazy In Love cover is one of my favorites, too.
