I Miss The '80s Like Those ElSalvadoran Nuns Miss The Bullets In Their Heads

"I miss the 80s like those El Salvadoran nuns miss the bullets in their heads"

That's a random line from one of my songs.

I'm not by nature a nostalgic robot. It's not that it has no appeal for me, I'm not some obsessive "Carpe Diem" type, it's just that the past is as much of a fantasyland as the future is: Tomorrow are things we hope for or fear, the past is stuff that we misremember.

MOVIE REVIEW: "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" (2004)

Recently, “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” was playing down in St. Grissom, and as R2 and I both missed that film in it’s initial release, we decided to check it out. Enchanted by the thought of seeing a ‘new’(ish) Olivier flick, made only 15 years after he died!We knew it was a bomb, but we thought it might be an interesting and memoral bomb - like Blade Runner - and not a bland and pointlessly forgetable bomb - like Armed and Dangerous 2: Armed and Fabulous - so we figured it was a good way to blow an evening.
