Tech Blech, Threat Levels, Movies that Tease

2.6.1 isn't happening today - it's happening tomorrow, after I figure out how the hell to even compile it without symbol table problems. I'm guessing I righteous screwed something with the way modules are linked via portage, but it can wait for a while - this fucking time skew problem (combined with the new gcc release, the secured 2.4 release, and the mozilla 1.6 release) make it almost entirely worth re-compiling and re-installing. It's also keeping my back-ups on their toes. It's also pissing me off that I have heard no music for the last three days except in my car, but that's another issue entirely.

I found some terror/threat/bogeyman level web scripts surfing WWDN. They come in Sesame Street and Wonka/Skittles Ashcroft. Wil also deserves bonus geek cred for the phrase will save vs. irritated wife.

This led me (don't ask how) to Lost in Translation, a film I have not seen, and am hesitant about seeing. Films about lonely people are not high on my lists of things to see right now, and that's all I know about it.

Speaking of movies, I saw a few trailers over at Cam's today that impressed me nigh without limit. Specifically, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, while only a teaser, makes the I, Robot teaser look pretty pathetic by comparison (although gnfnrf has already voiced his dissent in this regard). Hell Boy could be good, bad, or just poorly marketed. Man on Fire still looks damn fine. Worth browsing if you have the inclination and the bandwidth.

    Remember: the man who played Richard M. Nixon in Frost/Nixon is the same man who played Skeletor in The Masters of the Universe.
