Isaac’s certainly not moving very quickly. Hoping and praying for as little destruction as possible on the Gulf.
Football today! There are games five days in a row to start the season!
The Dark Knight Rises is not a terrible movie—it expectedly excels in sets and effects, for example—but neither is it a great one. There are routine sins, like a plot hole you could fly the “Bat” aircraft through, and a little-too-obvious Subaru product placement. But the main one is what, to me, sinks more promising present-day movies than any other: excessive length. It checks in at 2:45, and should have been at least two films. Here is solid proof that Christopher Nolan can disappoint. 5/10
After extricating myself from the blast radius of some mediocre storytelling earlier this week, I thought of a couple of stories I told when I was in college that play rather poorly in my memory. I didn’t think I was bad at it then. I hope I’m not way worse at it than I think I am now.

Finished the Disney dining reservations. That was the last bit of stress, I think. Now to the “gazing with childlike wonder” part!
