Bullet points

Frost/Nixon: Better than I thought it would be. (A note made mandatory by the movie's title and me being thirteen years old: you could write Frost/Nixon slash based on this movie. Yes, you could. I might even have a few ideas about that.)

Assuming that current legal symmetries render past historical asymmetries irrelevant: Wrong. Say what you want, but know that it means more than what you mean (which should be obvious to a writer!).

Outing fans: Wrong. Primum non nocere, people. It's not a difficult concept.

Order of the Stick: Really good.

Pi Day, 2009: Probably going to be really interesting!

Random note of Greater Depression daily trivia: Pro: Bought today a really comfy used office chair for about 20% of retail value. Con: It used to be my office chair, until we closed down the office and sold off the meager physical assets of my previous start-up.

Even more random the-tv-is-on-as-background question: (Some) actors have the ability to look intelligent and awesome. Why don't they use it during interviews? I realize part of it comes from the lack of scripting, photography, direction, etc, but I think they could do better.

Comics book coming up

(I won't make this a regular thing; I already spam you too much posting about the comics after I read them. But I'm kind of insomniac at the moment.)

Buffy The Vampire Slayer #23: Pro: The Slayer Army, including Nick Fury!Xander. Con: I'm not in a happy Jossplace right now.

Gotham Gazette Batman Dead #1: Con: That silly Batman is Dead thing, I'm already tired of it. Con: A fake Gotham Gazette would be very fun.

Secret Six #7: Pro: Secret Six is Love! Con: The last plot twist WASN'T.

Superman The World Of New Krypton #1: Con: Simplistic Kryptonian politics. Pro: Canon material for some of the pre-cataclysm Krypton fic I wrote literally years ago.

Trinity #40: Pro: The end is close! Con: Not that close.

Agents Of Atlas #2: Pro; AGENTS OF ATLAS #2. Con: What do you mean, con?

Cable #12: Con: Blahblahblah angst. Pro: I love timeline-wrecking stories.

Dark Reign Fantastic Four #1: Pro: *shrugs* I'm sort of looking into the FF these days. Con: Dark Reign was a good idea, but it's being handled in a nonsensical way. Beginning with all the Doom-stupidizing.

Deadpool #8: Pro: Deadpool! Con: The writing quality these days.

Secret Warriors #2: Con: I don't really care about the Marvel U that much. Pro: Badass Nick Fury is always good.
