Well, finally back home.

Went to see Planetfall on Friday for the premiere. Sold out show, room full of geeky types, and a whole lot of fun was had. It's actually a lot less cheesy than I was expecting, and you get to see 433 die! Worth the admission price.

Go see it. Or at least Get the DVD. It's not an Oscar contender, but it is a hoot, and it was made by a bunch of guys with passion.

Saturday, I spent the morning with Barb. Started out with chopping ice off of the sidewalk, then fixing a flat tire, then going to breakfast-turned-lunch. There was talking. There was crying. There always is. Riding a fine line between being nice and being honest. Trying to be both.

Eventually back home, where I crawled into bed for a nap. Needed. Then a jaunt up to Tony & Kristi's for some low-key company, and eventually back home.

Today was a tiny bit of Barb-time again, doing some catch-up LJ & e-mail stuff, and collecting all the tax info & bills that I could find. And some chat time.

Driving back to Iowa, I hit a snowstorm that sucked. Added an extra half-hour to the drive, and a lot of tension. Bleah.

Back at the apartment now. In a movie mind.

Abbreviated. Tense. I'll talk more about it later, but right now I really want to just unwind.

Was the movie as bad as the review in City Pages makes it out to be? I'm all in favor of supporting local art, but if it's bad, I won't.

I was an extra in a film called "Summer Solstice." The guy who made it won some kind of grant or something. Instead of hiring real actors, he used his friends who probably told him that they could act. Well, they couldn't, and the movie was simply awful. The two leads were supposed to be a couple, and they had as much chemistry between them as a brother & sister.

No, it was actually pretty good. It's not an acting tour-de-force by any means, though there are some really quite good performances. It's a sci-fi-western, and is entirely intended to be tongue-in-cheek.

I was expecting it to be cheesy and really bad, but I had a very good time. I've seen Hollywood studio films that were much worse.

Good to hear. Kate Sullivan has always struck me as being someone very bitter, and my guess is that she probably didn't "get" the movie. Or maybe she's just pissed because her own wretched radio show was cancelled after a few short episodes.

BTW, on a completely different note, I tried the silicone lube on the thread and needle-- worked like a charm. Thanks!

To be fair and provide full disclosure, Rob likes bad movies. He likes them so much I worry his taste sensors have been permanently thrown off.

Love you, Rob!

I do too. There's "good bad" and "bad bad." I can enjoy the former but not the latter.

But I like you.
