Long Live The King...

Matt and I saw Clash of the Titans yesterday and I hate to say it, but we were not impressed. I had such high hopes for it, too, so it was disheartening when it turned out to be a total snooze-fest. We saw it in 3D and that was probably the most disappointing part of the movie. When I go to see something in 3D, I'm expecting things flying at the audience. And Clash would have been perfect for this. There were Scorpions attacking, Medusa and her snakes and then of course the Cracken. So many opportunities for cool 3D effects! However, there were none. Yeah, things were a little more dimensional, but there was nothing special about it. Especially not for $17 per person (that's how much it costs in NYC)!

Now, on a more exciting note, just read that Stephen King has a son who's become a pretty successful author in his own right. And the cool part? He made it while using a pen name (Joe Hill), so he'd be sure his career wasn't based on who his father was. He wanted to do it on his own. Gotta respect that!

Off to write more of Painless now. Up to page 170 and need to get crack-a-lackin! Oh, and don't forget that tomorrow's blog will include a special guest!
