11:00 am - spank you for coming to loews
In case it wasn't readily obvious, certain people went to see Sin City again last night. This time charva and I arrived early enough at the theater to be kicked out so the dude could clean the tiny tiny tiny shoebox out (Theater 10 at Loews' Not-So-Fresh Pond gives me Copley Place flashbacks.) This meant we got to watch all the trailers and I was glad to see the enormously amusing Hitchhiker's meta-trailer on the big screen.

We also saw a curious promo involving those crazy bunnies who re-enact movies in 30 seconds -- in this example, the re-enactment of JAWS. Only it didn't show the bunnies. Or mention their URL. It was an ad for MSN's new search engine, and the live-action guy on the beach (who took longer to explain the premise than the bunnies do to re-enact the film) told us to go search for "shark bunnies" at the MSN search site for it.

I wrote the bunnies' creator a note asking if she had been involved in this promotion -- because if so, that's kinda cool, and no exposure is bad exposure, but if they were doing some nutty kinda viral marketing thing without knowledge, well, that's kinda ... skeevy. I do wish that they'd shown the short on the big screen, though, cause that would have kicked ass.

At any rate, Sin City was great the second time around too. And the Unibroue was tasty as hell.

Mmm, Unibroue. Which one was it? They have about a dozen different ones, all (that I've tried) tasty.

I hear it gives you a unibrow, though.

Oh yes, all of them are quite delicious. We had the Trois Pistoles this time out. I still think my favorite is La Fin du Monde.

Fin du Monde is probably my favorite beer in the world. I have a little glass with the logo on it that is only for drinking Fin du Monde out of. Also I have a huge oval thick cardboard Fin du Monde label thing. It is in the closet. I don't really know where I would display it. But I have it.

You have good taste.

if you'd gone to Not-So-Fresh Pond, you could have availed yourself of our fine selection of brews while enjoying the film!

Of course not. That'd be as odd as, say, breaking up a long-term affair with a pancreas.

I know! How strange do you have to be to roleplay a pancreas? I mean, really.
