You know when grown-ups tell you everything's going to be fine, and you think they're probably lying to make you feel better?
Yes.
Everything's going to be fine.

Little, Big

Tuesday, the day that will go down in history as having been eaten by mice, I went out and bought another two DVDs. After all, I only have 41 already in my to-watch pile.

These two are special. These two came recommended. First up, Big Trouble, the film of the book Big Trouble by Dave "I am not making this up" Barry, as recommended by reader Susie. (Yes! We have readers!)

Second, Big Trouble in Little China, as recommended on the Bad Astronomer's Good Movie page. Reviews will follow, as sure as droppings follow day-eating mice.

Logically, they'd go on the shelf next to Ranma ½: Chûgoku Nekonron daikessen! Okite yaburi no gekitô hen, but I like to keep my anime separate from other stuff. In case of cross-pollination or something. I don't know.

Wee Book of the Day

Book of the Day is The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett. It appears to be another Discworld-for-kids book, like The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents (which was excellent). If you've read any of Pratchett's other children's books, you'll know that they're also great for grownups.

I can't review it yet, because I haven't, um, actually read it. I only bought it today, and I'm still reading Wednesday the Rabbi Got Wet which I bought yesterday. (I hope the current run of reprints covers the complete series, because I haven't read most of the later ones.)

Web Site of the Day, then, is lspace.org, which is the centre for information about Pratchett's writings, particularly the Discworld books.

Pertinacious

Word of the Day is pertinacious. (Which probably means it will end up being the word of the week. — Ed)

When I Held Your Brain In My Arms

Song of the Day is When I Held Your Brain In My Arms from MST3K (the Terror from the Year 5000 episode):
There was a time, so bright and gay,
It seems like only yesterday,
When I held your brain in my arms.
Your adrenaline was like wine,
Sweet perfume was your endocrine,
When I held your brain in my arms.
Ahh. They don't write them like that anymore. (They never did. — Ed.)

Quotidian

Word of the Day is quotidian. (Well, of course the word of the day is quotidian. If it wasn't quotidian, it wouldn't be the word of the day. — Ed)

First and Second Law

Song of the Day is First and Second Law off the At the Drop of Another Hat album by Flanders and Swann:
The First law of Thermodynamics:
Heat is work and work is heat
Very Good.
The Second law of Thermodynamics:
Heat cannot of itself pass from one body to a hotter body
Heat won't pass from a cooler to a hotter
You can try it if you like but you'd far better not-a
'Cos the cold in the cooler will get hotter as a rule-a
'Cos the hotter body's heat will pass to the cooler

Deathstalker vs. Harry Potter

Dire as it was, Deathstalker and the Complete Lack of Plot was only slightly more boring than Harry Potter and the Extremely Slow-Moving Story, which somehow managed to score a 7.3 on IMDB. Now there's a movie that could do with a MiSTing. If you should feel the urge to watch either one, a few minutes of The Princess Bride is the recommended treatment.

May cause excessive quotations. Do not operate machinery if effected.

Deathstalker And The Movie From Hell

Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell is one bad movie. Even with Mike and the robots it was barely watchable. Deathstalker 2 wasn't nearly as bad, though that was at least partly due to having Monique Gabrielle wandering around wearing not very much at all. A quick glance at IMDB shows Deathstalker 2 with a rating of 4.1 against Deathstalker and the Script from Hell at 2.0. Looks like 2 was the best of the bunch, in fact.

Godzilla vs. Megalon doesn't seem to be a whole lot better. Maybe I need to buy some popcorn to enjoy MST3K properly. Mmm, popcorn...

Obligatory Marx Brothers Reference File

Entry 1:
Hello, I must be going,
I cannot stay, I came to say, I must be going.
I'm glad I came, but just the same I must be going.
Hooray for Captain Zoidberg! [Spaulding! — Ed] Whatever! Hooray!

Near Enough...

Rain, rain,
Rain, rain won't you help me
You know this day, isn't going to last for long;

Rain, rain,
Rain, rain won't you guide me
These arms, these legs, propel them to another day.
