When Sam and Fuzzy update number 400 rolled around a couple of weeks ago, a few emailed to ask why I didn't even mention it. Am I that modest? You wish! I didn't say anything only because, due to guest strips and so on, update number 400 was not comic number 400. So, celebrating the 400th update would have been empty and artificial, much like celebrating the dawn of the new millennium in 2000 instead of 2001. Update number 425 is the one to remember, though I don't have much planned other than raising my hands into the air and cackling maniacally.
I saw that I, Robot film the other day. As I recall, people were awfully hard on it when it was in theaters, but I really liked it. Even if it bore little resemblance to the original book, it had very likeable characters and a pretty compelling mystery storyline that managed to avoid the usual robots-become-intelligent-and-turn-against-their-makers cliches (See: the Animatrix). Normally I hate blending CG characters and live action, but it was reasonably seamless here... either because the CG characters were meant to be mechanical or because I was watching on a very small television. And face it, if they really could make household robots, they would probably make them look like creepy humanoid I-macs. I hope I'm not the only person who thought this was a good film, because if I am... everyone is wrong but me.
