...if it's in ice cream form. I'll take vanilla any day. Or mint chocolate chip.

Now reading: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (like I said I would).
Then I will probably end up watching this:
Or even THIS:
On a non-Frankenstein note for you good feeling people, The Help is coming out at the end of August. I think it looks interesting.

Less than one hundred days until Halloween, and I'm beginning my preparations. Happily, a couple of my favorite musicians seem to be getting ready too.
Today Rufus Rex, another band created by Curtis Rx (from Creature Feature), has released a new single from their (his?) debut album. It's titled "Worlds In-Between".
The song is available here, on the Rufus Rex Bandcamp page, and is a name your own price download. But I'm sure Curtis would be happy for you to at least donate a dollar, since it's going towards the Rufus Rex album. Which in turn will make me happy, especially if the album is released by Halloween.
Also, Midnight Syndicate is also releasing a new album August 2 called Carnival Arcane. Here is their first preview track titled "Freakshow":
So, that concludes today's free promotions. I do it because I support what I love.
On both parts, I am excited.

I'm not a gamer. At all. Sure, I got through the Black Ops campaign, but I was on the easiest setting and in the presence of someone who played better than me. However....
I would start playing Mortal Kombat for this:
Just add Jason, and all my Freddy-beating-the-living-crap-out-of-Jason dreams come true.

on really sucky Disney/Pixar films.
Finally got around to watching this movie last night and...
I didn't like it.
Sure, the beginning was sweet and touching, and the dogs were quite funny, but otherwise I didn't like it. The little Russell kid got on my nerves and I had a hard time really caring about him.
I'm back to Watchmen. I finally got my Director's Cut today and plan on extending my watching of Watchmen.
Also, happy Legal Drinking Age Day. Make the most of it.
Which means if you are 21 (depending on where you're at), you can drink this:
(The rest of the list can be seen here.)
Let me know how it goes.

Dark Knight Rises Trailer by teasertrailer
As it is a teaser trailer, it doesn't show much, but does give us a glimpse of Bane. I was more curious about Catwoman, but hey, hopefully next trailer, right?
The Dark Knight Rises comes out July 20, 2012 (for now, anyway. Here's to hoping it isn't pushed back).
Personally, I wished Heath Ledger was still alive to make another appearance, however small, as the Joker. Maybe this next movie will address where Joker is now, since it wasn't made clear in The Dark Knight.
I'm also somewhat happy to see this is (allegedly) the final chapter in Nolan's Batman universe. However awesome these movies are, I don't want them turning into the Saw franchise where it keeps going and going... and going... and going.... All good things must come to an end, if nothing but to keep them good. (The Friday the 13th movies come to mind. Jason X? Was that movie really necessary? At least Freddy never went to space, even though that series is in the same boat too.)
Anyone else thoughts on Nolan's Batman series? Likes? Dislikes? Was there any other villains you were hoping to see, like the Riddler? I was holding out for this version:
But do I ever get my way? Nah, I'm just a blogger.

I finally finished The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien today, making a total three times I've read it (yes, I do keep count). All in all, it's an okay book, one I will probably read again someday, when the feeling strikes me. Anyway, it resurfaces this thing I have with reading a book then watching the movie adaptation (surely there's a shorter way to say that). For example, last week I re-read Watchmen and then had to go re-watch the movie. Hence, Team Rorschach, as I mentioned in the previous post.
(via TheShopkeeper on DeviantArt.... yes, if you must know, I love that site. The fanart is both awesome and hilarious. Except some of the slashes. Like Cephalic Carnage's video for "Ohrwurm", that is seen cannot be unseen.)
Although there are some old movies for The Hobbit, I'm holding out for the new movie coming out next year.

Yes, I'll have to wait a while to see it, but I've waited for many a movie to be released.
In the meantime, I've started reading The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
I have no idea what it's about, as I bought it my freshmen year of high school while in my Ancient Egyptian phase. It has been sitting in my closet all this time, waiting to be read. I am obliged.
After this, I plan to go old school horror with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, but that all depends on my mood when I get there.
As my list of books to read grows ever longer (I added at least ten more books yesterday), do you guys have any suggestions for me? Maybe another graphic novel or some non Stephen King (not that I don't like him; I'm pretty sure all of his books I either own or are on my list) horror I can sink my teeth into? What are you reading at the moment?

Here's something I found hidden away in my abundance of internet favorites. If you've seen it before, good for you. If you haven't, I present to you...
ALIEN VS POOH!!!
Adorable. The whole story can be found here.
This also comes at an opportune time for other movie mash ups I have noticed that would be either majorly awesome or complete shit. The reason for my discoveries comes from the resurfacing of my quiet obsession with Watchmen. Team Rorschach FTW.
Harry Potter and The Ring (via sinister-otaku on DeviantArt)
Poor Draco. If only he realized what movie muggles are capable of...
Watchmen and Harry Potter (via enterlameprofilename via DeviantArt)
And finally, one I've posted before, but deserves to be posted again:
Watchmen meets The Dark Knight.
More specifically, The Joker vs Rorschach.
Two of my favorite comic book characters going head to head (er, face to face?)? Pity this isn't a real movie.
And yes, I know, the mash ups here are narrow, but they're the ones I want to see. Anyone have any other possible movie mash suggestions?
