  • Craig Ranapia,

    Please pardon the shameless linkwhoring, but I'm rather cheerful that my debut at the Scoop Review of Books is now live: __The Puppy (With Apologies to Edgar Allen Poe)__:

    I'm rather pleased with it, even though the scansion goes a bit skew-whiff in places. But I would say that, wouldn't I?

  • Sam F,

    Onya, Craig - reminds me I have reviews to hurry up and get in to Jeremy...

    And now, the moment just the other day when I realised I was definitely a massive nerd: a co-worker told me that the theme for her friend's engagement party was going to be "Cannes" - and the first thing that popped into my head was Star Trek.

    But did you mourn the missed opportunity to dust off the fake man-boobs and chest toupee? That's the mark of a real nerd!:)

    That'd be soooo cool. Then every time you walked into a room everyone could drop to their knees and yell your name.

    Loved the review, Craig.

    Loved the review, Craig.

    Thanks, Emma. It took a while to get the exercise beyond the "I don't care how closely related we are to monkeys -- they're creepy" stage.

  • Steve Parks,

    I wouldn't be surprised if Slumdog Millionare takes out the top award,...


    I’ll bet you a Monteiths that (unfortunately) Benjamin Button takes out the Oscar for Best Pic.

    Oh well.

    What'll it be, Matthew: Red, Pils...?

    Always take the blue pills.

    Aw what the hey, take both. See what happens.

  • BenWilson,

    After seeing Obama's budget, I think I'm going to reverse my pessimism earlier in the thread. There is indeed reason to be cheerful. This guy is the business.
