cass, can you not

So, just saw The DaVinci Code

1. It's not an evil movie per se. If you had fun with it, more power to you.

2. Some of the architecture on it is gorgeous, in particular the houses. I so want to live in some of those places (at least for a while).

3. That said, I think of this movie as the hyperactive, well-groomed but not-too-bright little brother of Foucault's Pendulum. Actually -and no offense to the Code's fans, this is purely a matter of taste- it kind of feels precisely like that, like it's just too juvenile to take seriously, even if it's trying in earnest, while Foucault's Pendulum is a book you can engage as an equal, and thus find fascinating, even when you don't like it. And I probably should stop using relationship metaphors when talking about movies and books, right?

Happy spam of squee

I'm stating the obvious and well-known, of course, but rubynye rules. Rules, rules, rules.

It's a rainy Saturday morning, I'd like to sleep more, and I have tons of stuff to do, but I've just received an awesome drawing of Steph in the mail (because rubynye, like Batman, always knows everything, including when you need a Robin-y treat to kickstart the day), and now I'm all "bring in on!" to the world.
