Hey, the new Bookslut issue is up, and this month I'm remembering to link to my column! It's my annual Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar breakdown, with an analysis assist from Borders. Enjoy.
Spent the morning at the dealership, getting my check engine light checked out. Turns out Jiffy Lube forgot to reconnect one of the airhoses. For the record, this is the second time that Burbank Jiffy Lube has sucked, and this time it cost me $43 to fix the problem. They'll be getting phone calls, and you, dear reader, should never go there. You know, in case you were thinking about it.
According to this story, Jake Gyllenhaal may be cast as Harvey Dent in the next Batman movie. I have no real opinion on this (well, except to mention that I always kind of preferred Black Harvey Dent from the animated series, not to mention dear ol' Billy Dee).
But goddamn it, Katie Holmes is going to return? I was done with that character halfway through the first movie. And how will that affect Christian Bale's R-rated Batman movie idea? Probably not in a good way.
Lots of real news to catch up on. Betty Friedan passed away! Denmark pissed off a major world religion! Feinstein smacked down the AG about "roving" wiretaps! But don't worry, I'll also make time to read some Project Runway recaps. I have my priorities in place.
