Like any cut-off diseased hand, she'll come flopping back



24 airs tonight, as usual. It's nice to be excited about it again, because the third quarter of this season was pretty awful. Sure, 24 is always ridiculous. But with this show, there's two kinds of ridiculous: the good kind (implausibly complex multi-level conspiracies) and the bad kind (amnesia, cougars, "hacking the internet"). Fortunately, it looks like we're through the mid-season lull now -- the last two episodes were great, and it looks like they've set up one heck of a story arc for the remainder of the season. Don't let me down, Kief!



Americans! I just found out that you guys can finally enjoy the rock stylings of Danko Jones without spending horrifying import prices... "We Sweat Blood" has been released in the USA! This was one of my favourite albums of 2003, so let me tell you about Danko Jones. Danko Jones loves to "rock." Danko Jones wishes that there were "80 seconds in a minute" and "90 minutes in an hour," so that he could rock even more than he already does. Danko Jones also loves both "the ladies" and "living in the city," and would really like to "burn in hell with you." If this sounds good to you, please buy his album. It rocks.

Super brother



It's election season where I live, too! But man, let me tell you... the campaign here is so shallow this year that it makes the one in Tackleford look positively respectable by comparison.



That's all for now. Call it a slow news day! Have a good weekend, everybody.

Screamin' 'bout your drugs, money, violence and fellatios



I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy film, which I caught at the theaters last Friday. To be honest, I think the heavily episodic nature of the series -- even within individual books -- lends itself more to a serialized format than a single feature. But that said, I think the folks behind the film did a bang up job capturing Adam's style and humour, despite the many cuts and additions one would expect to accompany the change in medium. It was a bit jumbled in places, and I think the final third would have been confusing to those who had not read the book beforehand, but I'm still quite pleased with how it turned out. I expected a total disaster and was pleasantly disappointed.



In other news, Nothing Nice to Say's Mitch Clem has joined me and the other nutcases at Dayfree Press. And that's a good thing! I love Nothing Nice almost as much as Mitch hates the Family Circus -- which is, in both cases, quite a lot.
