there's a light in the valley

Brian Tamaki sees the dark shadow of Satan, in the form of secularism, looming across New Zealand ...

... meanwhile, Satan is sitting at home on the couch watching South Park and drinking a beer, because while the dark shadow of evil - in the form of Brian Tamaki - looms across New Zealand, his work here is done.

In other news ...
  • The Transformers movie looks like it actually might turn out to be good, based on the trailers they've released so far. I'm guessing die-hard fans will hate it, since they seem to have ditched half the original premise and just kept the transforming robots and the names.
  • A Nancy Drew movie should be a good thing, but won't be because they're making it for 3-year olds. Heck, in this day and age resurrecting a tough, independent, teenage girl detective should be a no-brainer, god knows there's enough decent TV shows based on similar premises. Instead, it looks like they are making something that you half expect Hilary Duff to star in. Bastards. And where the hell is our Famous Five movie already? In fact, fuck the Famous Five, where the hell is our Three Investigators movie?? Actually, it turns out it's here. There is even a trailer. In German. Which won't even load. Goddamn.
  • Heath Ledger as The Joker? Who'd a thunk it, but he actually looks half decent (you'll have to scroll down a little to find the picture). And of course, check out I believe in Harvey Dent and I believe in Harvey Dent too. I still wish they'd made Batman Year 1, but the Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale interpretation is turning out rather well ...

Of course the TF movie will be rubbish. At Bay's insistence it has PUNY HUMANS in it instead of TWO GLORIOUS HOURS OF UNADULTERATED ROBOT CARNAGE.

BTW - ye gods and little fishes

To be fair, there does look to be quite a lot of robot carnage, and most importantly, lots of robot carnage inflicted upon puny humans. So the whole family should be happy.

And I concur about the facebook crowd. Such sad, sad people. Not quite as sad as the people who never left, but still ...
