The Hobbit – Book pages 300, Total Time (so far) 5:30
I am done.
How long can this go on?
The Hobbit (Kim Kardashian) continues on its quest.
Things go on forever. BUT, 3-D IMAX made my pants a place for the peeing.
Go see it.
You will if I do or if I do not say the right things.
As much as thinking Peter Jackson drools over money, the film still makes the mind flop on itself.
Good work, moneygrubber!!!
In other ways, go see “Afternoon Delight.” Independent films make on feel the smarter.
This is the time of year when Hollywood makes the liking of Hollywood seem like the boning of one’s sister.
Kind of hot. Totally sleazy.
If Hollywood was a man, “The Hobbit” would have been 10 movies.
Hollywood – you are a pussy.
So…Two thumbs up.
Made up story is still good story. IMAX 3-D is still IMAX 3-D.
Hey, Hollywood whoredom works. I must deal with this.
See this three times.

P.S. Now for brain expanding Vonnegut (Dead Eye Dick – 1982 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadeye_Dick) – “We all see our lives as stories, it seems to me, and I am convinced that psychologists and sociologists and historians and so on would find it useful to acknowledge that. If a person survives an ordinary span of sixty years or more, there is every chance that his or her life as a shapely story has ended, and that all the remains to be experienced is the epilogue. Life is not over, but the story is.
Some people, of course, find inhabiting an epilogue so uncongenial that they commit suicide.
P.P.S. “Survivor” finale on Sunday! Whoop dee whoop!!
