2. Saw Across the Universe, finally. It was about what I expected. The musical sequences were pretty good. The stuff in between was not so much. The story was hacked together badly, and it seemed to be ripping off Rent a bit too much. In order for it to be successful, I think it would need to distance itself from the Beatles mythos, and it didn't.
3. I have spiffied up my laptop, just in time for me to not use it so much during the school year. Whoops.
4. The US seems to be failuring during these closing days of the Olympics. Except for the women's soccer team. They're still badass.
5. I am not very surprised by the cancellation of SGA, and its subsequent transformation into a direct-to-DVD movie series. It's probably (a) cheaper and (b) more lucrative for MGM, and SG-1's already done it.
