apparently, the day you STARTED a blog entry is the day it records here on blogger. so while i posted that last post on monday, it recorded it as last friday. so i'm all outta whack.
this one, which should be dated wednesday, january 3, will be followed by an entry for friday, so that i can catch up and make sure i nail my "three-a-week" promise. also tomorrow will have trivia questions.
anyway, enough of that.
went to see "rocky balboa" with my dad on tuesday night and then talked with ringo for about an hour or so yesterday about how much we dug it. (no, we didn't spend the whole hour talking about rocky...) we were both excited by stallone's ability to capture so much of what made the first movie so moving without doing the same old thing all over again. as a storyteller and an actor, you can really see INSIDE the man again...and it was just great! poor guy was certainly typecast all those years ago--hell, he typecast himself, but here's a guy who really deserves a break. and certainly another look.
also, when that theme music--the original theme music--came up, i almost cried.
on another note, someone on ebay is selling--i guess it's s'posed to be a mummified chupacabra. it's advertised as a gaff (a fabricated oddity) so they're not trying to tell you it's real. it looks to me like the head from a t-rex model or something and built up with modeling clay or sculpy.
still kinda cool though...
and just so you don't forget,
PERHAPANAUTS:SECOND CHANCES #3
is out in stores today! my favorite issue so far--although #4 is certainly turning into something we didn't plan on at the start...
let us know whatcha think of issue 3 when you get it!
and, as i noted in the last post, check out my "INSIDE LOOK" over at
and thanks to our pal, frederik hautain, for that!
that's it for now!
smell ya later!
