Once upon a time I used to dress up 'Ken', but now that I'm grown up, I like bigger men
Blogger has been fucking me jailhouse style, people. Now I'm game for an hour or two of that, but three days is a stretch, even for me. I'm plugging along though, and tossing you a cut of meat for Friday. Oh, incidentally, since St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday during Lent, our Archbishop in Ohio has granted a special dispensation so that Catholics in the greater Cincinnati area can have their corned beef and cabbage today. I'm sure JC approves. It's W he WD. Where was I? Oh yeah. Meat. Aaron Eckhart has a new movie coming out today, Thank You For Smoking, and it's getting great reviews. His head is getting great reviews from me. The face, the hair, the intelligence you can see in his eyes, it all works for me. The movie is not so much about smoking as it is about the tobacco lobby along with lobbyists for alcohol and firearms. The crew in this movie call themselves the MOD Squad, with MOD being their acronym for "Merchants of Death". Sounds like it's a sharply written, funny and thought provoking film. Can't wait to see it, but it'll prolly be a few weeks before it gets here. Aaron, though, I've been loving him long time, at least since Erin Brokovich. Maybe this movie will finally bust him wide open.
