Paying the Bills Theatre: The Shaft

My mother liked the movie, this scares me.

For those just joining us, PBT is me watching bad movies and commenting on them as thoughts come to mind. Normally as I'm watching them, but I've yet to fix my laptop, so this installment is after the fact. The phrase "Paying the Bills" refers to these movies being pretty damned bad, and the only reason I can see some otherwise good actors taking these parts is because they have a house payment to make.

The Shaft, called Down outside of the US, stars Naomi Watts, and perenial PBT type names like Ron Perlman, and Michael Ironside.

Bwah

I *so* do not understand airplane ticket pricing schemes.

I've just checked the SAME flights like three times in a row, and had it keep changing from 350ish, to 730ish, back to 530ish. In the span of a few minutes.

There's other oddities, but damn, that is messed up.

Oh, Internet

So, there's a new XKCD comic, and as it is wont to do, it pokes fun at the internet, particularly the silliness of some of the 'pop culture' references that people will add to entries. Now, the comic I found mildly amusing, made funnier because of the mouseover.

But you know what knocked this from mildly amusing to downright hilarious?

The wood entry on Wikipedia now has this...

"Editing of this article by new or unregistered users is currently disabled until July 10, 2008 because a mention in a webcomic is causing significant disruption in the form of useless "in pop culture" sections."

The Waffler

38% Anxiety Over Abandonment and 44% Avoidance Of Intimacy


You're not the most decisive person. You tend to be unsure what you want out of your attachments, and it's unlikely you've had more than mediocre relationships. You vacillate between trust and mistrust, and between low and high self-esteem. You probably have a couple of good friends who support you and believe in you, but you tend not to let things get too heavy. You like to sit on fences.
