The big deal of the month was the two days I spent at the Clinton Global Initiative, where, among other things, I got a kick out of watching Two tall Presidents, but did not get to discuss comic books with the Big Dawg, and tried, unsuccessfully, to get an argument going over rehabilitating the word stewardess.
Over the course of the month I managed to review three movies: X-Men: First Class, the bleak comedy Everything Must Go starring Will Ferrell, and Robert Redford’s historical drama about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, The Conspirator.
And I reviewed a book, Ernest Cline’s cyberpunkish, 80s nostalgia tripping Ready Player One.
On the social and political front? Let’s see. I started the month bragging about the one and only way I am a better person that Barack Obama and ended it by pretty much telling Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York to go to H-E-Double hockey sticks.
In between my nine year old self explained to Governor Rick Perry what he doesn’t understand about Superman and my present day self tried to explain to cyber-utopians why I don’t use the automatic checkout lanes at the supermarket.
Guess I’ve had less productive months. Thanks to all of you for reading. Hope you stick around what’s coming up in October.
