Batman, Edmonton, and Space Ghost

I'll just start you off with an amazing webseries that I recently discovered: How to, Batman!

There's a whole lot of these things, and their each brilliant in their simplicity.

I watched Scott Pilgrim vs the World on one of my rain days this week, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was bizzare, funny, and spastic. Even though I wasn't a fan of the books, I loved this movie.

Have you ever enjoyed a trailer and then watched a movie, and the movie was terrible because the person who edited the trailer had a better sense of comedic timing than the editor of the movie? Not the case here. The ENTIRE movie is cut as energetically as a trailer, and even more so in key moments. If you liked the trailer, WATCH THIS MOVIE. If this trailer gave you an urge to shoo neighborhood children from your lawn, avoid this movie.

On Saturday we had our work barbecue at the Edmonton Capitals/Tuscon Toros game. The Capitals lost, but I got to see my bosses drunk and I discovered that the Edmonton Capitals mascot looks exactly like Space Ghost.

My research seems to indicate the the Cap's mascot's name is “Razzle,” which is pretty lame. Dude, he's a super hero. Just call him “Captain Edmonton.” Or “The Capitalist.”

I attended Theo's Missionary farewell tour in Sherwood Park today. He's off to Colorado Springs Colorado for two years. Bye, Theo!

And for good measure, here's a video that Janice sent me. Exquisite in its subtlety.
