And what do I do with it? I get Battle: Los Angeles and Creature From The Black Lagoon. To be fair, I also got a book (I know, right? A book at a library... who knew?) of Ursula K. Le Guin short stories because I had seen a reference to "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" and it sounded cool (like that Dr. Who ep where they're living on the tortured space whale). Anyway, the intro has a great bit which is explained by the rest of the intro, but is sorta extra funny out of context:
"Where do you get your ideas from, Ms. Le Guin?" From forgetting Dostoyevsky and reading road signs backwards, naturally. Where else?


So I watched the aliens try to colonize us movie on Thanksgiving Day, since it seemed appropriate. And! And! Michelle Rodriguez actually gets to be badass and spoiler )

And now for my SyFy Channel-less SyFy Saturday, I busted out Creature From The Black Lagoon and I gotta ask: Am I not supposed to be rooting for the Creature to kill them all? Cuz I was totally rooting for the Creature to kill them all. I mean, he's the title character, right? That makes him the protagonist. In other news: melodramatic music cues that were like actual dun-Dun-DUN!s-- seriously, the Creature's theme is like three notes of DOOM! Also: WTFRBOAS (What The Fuck Random Bat On A String)?
