Thunder, Thunder, Thunderstorm, Ho!

  • So, I was out in my car today when the "near tornado" weather came through. Smart enough to pull over to the shoulder during the first, stopped and parked in a store lot for the second. The second was definitely the worst, with the car moving very alarmingly and the peanut sized hail. When I went into the grocer's the power was out. They did, however, have all the refrigeration and registers on the backup generator. But it was a bit...odd, shopping in the dimness, with all the employees hanging around with a sort of "deer in the headlights" look.
  • Made it home, and now there is the cooking and the baking. Ah, and finally watching Jonah Hex, which, in fact, is not as bad as reported. If you like lots of mindless mayhem, and comic-bookish plots. Fortunately, I do. I can profoundly enjoy deep, intellectual art--but sometimes I just want things to go "Boom!" It's a "Boom!" kinda day in Meirwen-land.
  • Also, if anyone has a Dreamwidth invite, I would like one. I want to back LJ up given all the issues lately. Thanks.
  • Oh, and one last thing--the Thundercats new iteration premiers Friday. The trailers did not look awful. However, I must say that having watched part of the marathon of the one, the original Thundercats earlier this week, it was really pretty. And bad. So really my bar for the newest one has come down a few pegs. ;-)

But it's a comic-book movie. "Jonah Hex" was a Marvel imprint.

Yes--and they even have some lovely shots that are actually graphic renders, early in, to bridge the two media.

Which I happen to want to watch... I also want to watch "The Green Hornet", and I thought that "The Green Lantern" was well done, as well.

I agree on Green Lantern. Hoping to see Captain America this week sometime.
