Welp, I posted a (what I thought anyway) well reasoned post concerning gun control on Cracked. And it got deleted. Hmpf. That's a first.

So it's not just pathetic, it's second-hand pathetic.

Are you serious about that? If so, then:

Watched the new red Dawn trailer....looks like we might see the first time a TEC-9 clone is used by the good guys.

If that's so, I'll be building a rocket to the moon in my basement (if Wallace and Gromit can do it, then so can I).

That trailer looks interesting. Kathryn Bigelow's a pretty good director.

Were you kidding, but left out the ":D"?

It'll be interesting to see how this movie turns out, given the level of DoD cooperation that they received. But I hope that it has no political agenda (making Bush look too incompetent, glorifying Obama's role, etc.)

Haha, I can't wait to tell that info to my wife and see how it affects her opinion. (Though it's not like she thinks the book is high art or anything.)

R.I.P. Tony Scott (even though I actually never thought too highly of his directing style).
