"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties

Went to see King Kong with my sister tonight. It could have been... shorter. Like if you cut out everything that was put in there for the fucking video game? There's goes an hour or so...

The lead-in stuff I had no problem with. All the shit that wasn't there just because it would look good on the Xbox? Hey, I had no problemw ith it. Kong hisself was pretty good stuff.

There was some residual blue-screening on Ann when they were sitting on the cliff on the island, watching the sunset. That was really weird. And I can still tell CG from real actors, which drives me up the goddamn wall.

You know what? Get a guy to jump on a pole and then plaster that onto the background. k? k.

Like I told the guy the gas station attendant: Wait for the DVD.
