Had a totally insane dream this morning wherein I met the boys from Wilco at a summer camp reunion. We ran around the campgrounds saying hello to long-lost friends, but then we had to leave because we were about to start a bank-robbing spree. It ultimately fell apart when, during the last heist (which was set in a parking garage and was set to "Hell is Chrome"), we were joined by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, and Joe turned out to be an undercover cop (we discovered this because Joe started shredding the guitar solo), and then Steven starting singing, and then the parking garage exploded and we all sat around in this lava-filled cavern waiting for the police to find us.

Your guess is as good as mine.

We did indeed watch Snakes on a Plane last night, which was about as terrible as we'd hoped. It was great fun to look at the passengers boarding the plane and figuring out who was going to die (and how); the only real stereotype that they managed to omit would be the elderly bickering couple (Ethel and Marty, say). It would be hard to say it was disappointing, but the money shot (i.e., "I've had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane") was way too obviously tacked on. But I feel stupid about complaining about an incredibly stupid movie, so I'll leave it alone.

We watched The Descent last week, a movie I was very anxious about seeing. Did I already mention this? In any event, I HATE scary movies because I totally get sucked in - even the horrible ones - and from all accounts The Descent is one of the better-made horror movies in recent memory. But I sucked it up, and I'm really glad I did, because it was really, really good. And yes, it was absolutely terrifying; but the bonus is that now I feel like I can watch any scary movie, because I survived The Descent. We watched the unrated version, which features the original British ending - and the British ending is totally fucking brilliant.

3-day weekend coming up, hooray. Tomorrow I'm doing some music with a 6 Characters-related friend, which should be fun; not sure about the rest, but my copy of Lost Planet should be arriving any moment now, which would take up some idle time quite nicely.
