It feels like somebody else's lights came on

I finally saw Bubba Hotep last night, and it was fantastic. To summarize for those who haven't heard of it, Bubba Hotep is a movie where Bruce "don't call me Ash" Campbell stars as an living, elderly Elvis and battles a zombie mummy. Naturally, I went in expecting good things and was not disappointed.

What I was not expecting was an Elvis that was a developed, three-dimensional character rather than just a one-liner-delivering caricature. Bruce Campbell's Elvis is a man burdened with regrets and frustrated about the realities of aging. It was startling to see the whole Elvis-is-still-alive bit played so straight and so compellingly, especially in what is otherwise a pretty light, goofy movie. Much like, say, Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribean, this is the sort of bizarre-but-brilliant performance that you really need to see to believe. Don't miss this film.

Link fill up your hearts

Scary Go Round has returned after a mild case of server explosion. Four out of five experts agree that server explosion is the number one cause of hair loss among webcartoonists.

One of my favourite webcomics, Girly, just turned one-year-old yesterday. If you haven't already read Girly, now is a good time to head over and catch up on a year's worth of awesome.

Speaking of anniversaries, Sam and Fuzzy is approaching its two-year in about a month-and-a-half. I don't have anything special planned comic-wise, but we could always sacrafice some sort of animal to the dark lord Atheia.

He's going for speed

I went to a "grad party" up at the University of Victoria this weekend. It was really cool to see so many familiar faces from the last four years of my life! But once I got home I realized that most of those people are going to be moving away and I won't be seeing them again.

I guess until this weekend I hadn't really thought about how many people would be disappearing from my life at the end of this school year. After awhile, you get so used to spending every day with ten thousand other people your age that its hard to think of what life would be without them, working someplace with only a couple dozen regular faces, or in my case, working at home by myself! I'll have to make sure I go out a lot, or I'm liable to become some kind of hermit man.
