Despite my initial misgivings about turning this into a mini-arc, here we are. I hope you’ve enjoy this weeks conclusion. I think arson is a much less serious transgression than talking during a movie, don’t you? (tongue planted firmly in cheek).

I have to say thanks to everyone who has sent an e-mail this week either about these last few comics or about my plans to make the “THIS IS NOT YOUR LIVING ROOM!” t-shirt. The feedback has been excellent and I’m trying to respond to everyone. If I miss you, I hope this thank you will do.

I was very surprised to see how enthusiastic people are about the t-shirt idea. Lots of people raising their hand saying “Consider this a pre-order.” That doesn’t happen to me very often. I’ll float a t-shirt idea to you guys every once in a while and people will either ignore the request for feedback or respond and say “It’s funny, but I probably wouldn’t buy it.”

I need a little more confidence in my t-shirt design ability, but I’m not a slogan machine like some people. Now that I have your encouragement behind me, I’m excited about designing it. I’ve done a little research for reference shots of movie screens and seats, but I’m not sure what direction to go. Part of me wants to make it kind of graphical and part of me wants to go straight-forward with it. I got a great bit of advice to keep the design simple, big and bold letters on the back of the shirt so people can wear it to the movies and make a statement with it. Do it up in glow-in-the-dark ink so people sitting behind you can read it. I thought that was really clever.

Do you have design ideas you want to suggest? My ears are open.

Not much else to talk about today. New movies this week are slim pickin’s! Awake with Hayden Christensen? When that’s the most high-profile new release, you’ve got trouble. Go see No Country For Old Men if you haven’t already. It’ll well be worth your time.

Me? I’m staying at home, most likely. Weather forecasters are predicting a huge winter storm this weekend. Frozen rain followed by snow. Should be fun. Not that we’d be able to go anywhere if we wanted to. Our day care called Cami to pick up Henry yesterday because he had broken out in a rash and they thought it was hand-foot-mouth disease! Cami took him to the doctor and it turns out it’s chicken pox. So we have to keep him isolated for the next 4 to 5 days.

What’s that? Trapped in an ice-encrusted house with an itchy an irritable 9 month-old! I bet you’d love to trade places with me!

It shouldn’t be too bad. I was sent a review copy of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End earlier this week in advance of it’s release on DVD next Tuesday. So I’m looking forward to diving into the extras on that one. Look for a review next week. I’m also thinking of making a run to Best Buy before the storm hits to pick up a copy of Waitress and Futurama: Bender’s Big Score. I’ve heard great things about both. Then again, I’d probably buy that Futurama movie even if it was total crap! (But what are the odds of that?)

Incidentally, I have a SECOND copy of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End to give away next week. So be sure to listen to The Triple Feature next Monday at 9:00 PM CST over at for your chance to win.

Okay! Gotta wrap things up! Have a great weekend everyone! Thanks for reading!

Why am I the one being thrown out? I wasn’t talking!

No, but you were the one who started the garbage fire in the third row!

There! Those are the culprits!

They talked through the entire movie! They forced me to start that garbage fire in an attempt to smoke 'em out!


Where's the commentary now?

What do you have to say for yourselves?
