Why haven’t I written a review for Spider-Man 3 yet? I only have to write that one and then the one for PotCaWE and I’m all caught up on my reviews and can move on to more important thangs.
Maybe that’s why? Am I afraid of actually starting something important? The summer is rapidly slipping away and I’ve done nothing terribly productive with it so far. Grumble, grumble. So here’s the what-what: no matter what, I’m going to write my Spider-Man 3 review tomorrow (Thursday). And I’m going to write my PotCaWE review on Friday. Period. The end. The foot has spoken.

Here’s what my flower bed looked like exactly one month ago:
And here’s what it looks like now:PRETTY!!

Link of the Month:
You may not know this about me, but one of the things that I find extraordinarily fascinating is how the future has been viewed throughout the ages. From Jules Verne to George Pal to George Lucas and William Gibson, the history of the future is one of my most favorite subjects. Well, this Paleo-Future website just happens to be all about it! It isn’t very in-depth, but it does have a wealth of links and videos and pictures that I absolutely adore.
DVD of the Month:
Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls
Yeah, this came out a while ago, but it’s practically all I’ve played for the past month. I never played Final Fantasy I before, and it has a charming directness in its complete lack of character development and it’s almost-complete refusal to hand-hold you. Plus it’s been beefed up with SNES-level graphics and four huge new dungeons! And Final Fantasy II is my favorite of all the Final Fantasies that I’ve played (though I stopped playing at SNES FFIII, so I don’t know about the 3D, FFVII+ games).
Album of the Month:
Amy Winehouse: Back to Black
When I first heard her voice, I could have sworn that Amy Winehouse was a large, 30ish – 40ish black soul singer from the South. Imagine my surprise when she turned out to be a tinly little Jewish girl (she’s only 23) from Britain! This album has a fantastic retro feel to it, harking back to the era of the girl soul groups and jazz from the 50s and especially the 60s, with a whole lotta Motown mixed in. It’s great fun, and surprisingly sophisticated.
