Before I forget
The Matt Damon Identity was excellent, though only loosely based on the book; by that I mean they must have waved the book over the top of the script a couple times. That doesn't detract from the movie -- I want to see it again. But that's mostly because I found Matt Damon makes an awesome action hero, and his facial expressions were dead on. The action sequences were well-choreographed, too.

Which prompted a discussion with zen_raven: I believe that Matt Damon is a much better, more versatile actor than Ben Affleck, yet Ben seems to have much more star power. I wonder why that is, or if this is a common opinion? Before traceracer kills me, I'll stipulate that I don't think Ben is a bad actor, just that Matt is more skilled.

Why do some people just never get the fact that they're Just Not Funny? Of course, that means that I hope I'm not one of those people, unbeknownst to me, too.

Watched Witchblade tonight, and I'm not quite sure what my reaction is. The first hour did not take the comparison to last season very well, but by the end of the second hour, I definitely wanted more. I think it's odd that you-know-who is dead; it was more than a little unexpected, I'll admit.

Reasons Ben has more star power than Matt:

1.) Ben is 6'3". Matt is 5'11".
2.) Ben dated an Oscar-winning actress. Matt dated a shoplifter actress.
3.) Ben is square-jawed and looks like an American Man. Matt, prior to "The Bourne Identity," looked both really young and really gay. (Compare their IMDB photos, and tell me I'm wrong.)
4.) Ben carries himself with confidence, and has the mannerisms of a star (read: arrogant bastard). Matt's mannerisms are kind of unassuming and dorky.

But me... I like Matt Damon better, to be honest. Affleck just doesn't appeal.

Gentlemen prefer blondes. Chicks dig the "tall, dark, handsome" look.

See, my goal is to make someone laugh loudly enough so as to attract the curious attention of their coworkers. It's easy if someone has a job where they sit in a cubicle and are underworked. It's a little harder if they have a separate office.

You just went and threw a monkeywrench in the whole works, though, what with you working at home sometimes and all.:)

hope you're doing well,

Re: Sure!

Some reason I thought you had it, but in thinking about it you wouldn't have got the email from Last Time I Moved.

In any case, you should have it now.


who was expecting an awful series of poultry puns in this thread and is almost disappointed not to see them.
