Where pretentious and lame is not just a style choice, it's a way of life

All quiet in the Hangar
Apologies for both my loyal readers here but it's a busy weekend for your friend and humble narrator. Yesterday I bypassed an extra blog to meet up with my old buddy Pat Thomas Esquire and company to catch "Watchmen" up in Annapolis. My opinion: B-. Loved the action, loved Jackie Earle Haley's character (who would have thought Kelly Leak from the original "Bad News Bears" could play such a badass?) loved the CGI stuff and the gal playing Laurie was sneaky hot. On the other hand, the movie was too long, the plot kinda wanders all over the place and there was far too much male nudity.
Today, I'll be on the road again, this time back to Rehoboth Beach for two Cape Gazette assignments and then off to Laurel to meet up with "Maki At The Movies" creator Greg "Snake" Maki for a free show with Burn Halo and the Charm City Cobras (who sound like either a gang from "The Warriors" or an 80s hair metal tribute band. Snake assures me they have an AC/DC kinda sound. We'll see.)
So that means there will not be much up here in the Hangar, although I may be able to find time to write about a metal album I'm addicted to. Anyway, just a couple orders of sports business to take care of...
So that's it for now. As for some entertainment, here's a cool highlight package by NFL Network from the 2008 regular season.
...And a YouTube clip you can swing your heavy metal hair too? How about "Swamped" by Lacuna Coil, which not only features the always aesthetically pleasing Christina Scabbia but also allows me to have the line "DESTINEEE!!" stuck in my head all day.
