Not as much writing got done today as I had planned. Usually that's how I spend the first day of my weekend (since my days off are Tuesday and Wednesday), but since I only had today off, I actually had to do some things.

I wrote the entire opening paragraph of a half-assed review while laying in bed this morning. Then I got up and watched TREME instead. Gotta catch up before Season 2 starts. I missed the last half while I was in Peru last year. Christ. That was almost a year ago.

Long story short, I saw NO STRINGS ATTACHED (yes, a romantic comedy on Valentine's Day) and the whole time I couldn't decide which feeling was greater: my love of everything Natalie Portman does or my sheer hatred of Ashton Kutcher. At the end of the day, I think I hate Ashton way more than I enjoy looking at Natalie. So, if you feel the same way, don't see that movie.

Actually don't see that movie anyway.

You know what movie you should see?


It's nothing more than Jason Statham and Ben Foster being badasses for an hour and a half. It's a great time as long as you're not expecting anything more than it to be like every other Jason Statham movie (with the exception of SNATCH).

On a side note, now that Ben Foster is back on the big screen I'm sure I'll have people telling me how much I look like him again (and already have once or twice). I was in L.A. a few years ago, right around the time that 3:10 TO YUMA came out and there were billboards everywhere for it. One night, I was eating at Newsroom, which is a somewhat hip restaurant in Beverly Hills right across from the Ivy and people kept whispering and pointing at me. And before that, when Alpha Dog was in theaters, I got stopped on numerous occasions at random places with someone saying, "Hey, you look like that Nazi guy from Alpha Dog."

But anyway. The only other thing I did today was try to get a picture of me holding both Harley Quinn and Gwen Stacy. But that didn't work too well at all. So here's what I was able to get.
