as they all seem a little tepid…but maybe the the appearance of _Stardust_ “on the big screen”:http://imdb.com/title/tt0486655/ will get me to finally go out and buy the original “comic”:http://www.dccomics.com/graphic_novels/?gn=6325.
And who knows, maybe I’ll just go see it for the helluvit.
But what got me to write this entry (the first in far too long) is that I ran across “a review in the Austin Chronicle”:http://www.austinchronicle.com/gyrobase/Calendar/Film?Film=oid%3A513707 that made me laugh with the first line:
bq. “Fairies wear boots,” recalled a sage and seasoned wise man whose name eludes me at the moment, “I tell you no lies.”
The man whose name alludes him would, of course, be Ozzy Osbourne, since the line comes from the (eponymously named?) song “Jack The Stripper/Fairies Wear Boots” off of “Paranoid”:http://www.amazon.com/Paranoid-Black-Sabbath/dp/B000002KHH/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/105-3541773-8222844?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1186773814&sr=8-1
