First I stole [livejournal.com profile] philthe25th's idea to catalogue all the movies I've seen on Twitter, now I've stolen his idea of posting a month's worth of reviews on lj. The fun of the Twitter review is that you're limited to 140 characters. The fun of re-posting the reviews here is that I can expand on whatever snap judgment I'd made and say some more things (more coherent things, maybe) about the films.

I didn't see enough films to make this a best-of (maybe I should start reviewing/grading TV episodes?), but fair's fair: here's what I've been watching.

Iron Man (2008): 9/10. Light on the character-to-action ratio, but that's like faulting water for being wet. RDJr is a hero. Saw it 2x.

More: I've actually seen it 3.5 times by now, heh. )

EDIT: After only one entry, I've forgotten the one-song-per-post challenge I've set for myself. So: here's a Justin Timberlake/Ace of Base mashup ("Summer Love" with "Cruel Summer"). Good times.

I think google may have created the best tool to access the internet. In their feed reader, they have this section of add-ons and goodies. In there, you can find this whatsit bookmark that's just called "Next >>". It's a bookmark to add to your bookmark toolbar. When clicked, it'll bring you to the page that's the next newest unread item in your subscribed feeds.

What makes this awesome (aside from the obvious - not having to access the Reader app in order to access your feeds) is in the effect of clicking this one thing and being taken to site after site of fresh content.

Essentially, you just click the thing and it makes more internet.

Or appears to. But that's really the same thing, eh? You don't have to hunt down the content, you have one button (now renamed "MOAR!") that brings it to you whenever you click there. And then suddenly: more internet. Like magic.

And the fun part is it's arranged with the newest item first and not grouped by blog/site so you never know what you're going to get. I just clicked from the Google Reader to a new fic from [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller to an article at The New York Review of Books to news of a Chinese mine collapse. All with the one button!

Without having to go through your bookmarks or URL history or the Reader (or flist, if you've set it up). You click the thing and it makes more internet.

EDIT: the song to match this... *thumbs through mp3s* How about The Feeling, with "I Thought It Was Over"? I’m spinning in circles I can’t stop/ I thought it was over but it’s not.
