Holy shit, it's Christmas in August. First Karl Rove says he's gonna resign at the end of August, and now: Chapter 13 of Trapped In the Closet is online.

Pretty good weekend, all told.

We saw The Bourne Ultimatum on Saturday, which was pretty good, except for the hand-held camera work which made us a bit queasy and disoriented. I think I was expecting a bigger reveal at the end, or at least some sort of twist.

We also watched Hot Fuzz with commentary last night, and I just gotta say - if I were 15 years old, and an aspiring filmmaker, I'd drop everything I was doing and go to the UK and do everything I could do to have Edgar Wright as a mentor. Simon Pegg is hilarious (as is the rest of the cast), obviously, but it's clear that Edgar Wright is what makes Hot Fuzz and Shaun and Spaced so brilliant, and his knowledge of film and literature is mammoth in scope.

It turns out that Apple is, in fact, still manufacturing 80gb iPods; it's just that every RadioShack in NYC is out of them at the moment. I've decided that I can't wait for a next-gen announcement - I need my music, and I need it yesterday.

Two things:

1. I am a slave to Facebook Scrabble. I'm in the middle of 4 different games right now and my brain is all scrambled. I love it. If you're on it, let's get it on.

2. After a kinda gross walk through midtown during my lunch hour, I am iPodded yet again. I don't care if there's a new one coming out for the holidays with touch screens, 3D holography and orgasm control; there's just no way I could go that long without going completely insane. I'm supposed to be in scrimp-and-save mode right now, but this was a necessary purchase.
