Emily and Amanda are off visiting friends and I have the bizarre prospect of the first few days at home alone since we moved here.
Managed to keep busy with a little blogging, life-sorting-outness, and a terrible Disney film (Amanda hates Nicolas Cage, but ever since he uttered the line â€œWhy couldnâ€™t you put the bunny back in the box ,â€ in Con Air Iâ€™ve had a soft spot for him). Despite the fact that seeing a nerd take on magic is clearly a good formula for geeks everywhere, the dramatic climax of the film sees the hero emit the horrible putrescence that was:
â€œIâ€™m not alone. I brought a little science with me.â€
I know it was meant to be a little tongue in cheek but itâ€™s nowhere near the comic mastery of XKCD and just made me shudder a little. Randall Munroe is legend, Jerry Brucheimer, not quite so much.
Still, there was something about seeing the scene from Fantasia take CGI-tastic form.
