I don't post too much because I delete faster than I write (and that's a good thing). But I felt I should at least make a ripple in internets-verse anyway:

- Breakfast is *always* the first meal of the day. Always. Even at 2pm.

- It ain't "snow-pocalypse" till it sticks.

Following the success of the film "No Country for Old Men" it was only a matter of time before Hollywood jumped on to the Cormac McCarthy bandwagon (apparently "All the Pretty Horses" didn't really do it for Hollywood).

Recently I learned that McCarthy's post-apocalyptic odyssey--and Oprah Book Club fave!--"The Road" is being adapted into a movie.

While I really enjoyed the book, I am experiencing the same emotions of anyone who discovers that their beloved story is being turned into a film: "Sweet! Yay!!! Oops. I mean, boo!".

Honestly I view this news with cautious optimism. The screen shots look promising (ok... screen shot-based reviews are mainly for slavering fanboys) and I like Viggo Mortenson's work. But it appears the movie release date was postponed to later date in 2009. Usually not a good sign. There have even been rumors of it being released straight to DVD(???).

Hopefully it won't be a screw up of apocalyptic proportions.

Whatever the case, I heartily recommend the book.

It was only a matter of time before someone tried to make this into a movie:

”Bond Director To Make 'World War Z'”

I really enjoyed the book. A good scare. But I worry that it’ll be difficult to effectively recreate the “historical narrative” style of the book. And I don’t want to say that the mixed reviews of “The Quantum of Solace” are making me nervous… but they’re not helping.

Ah well. I’m still a slavish fan of the walking dead. So I’ll still eagerly devour any little tidbits of information pertaining to this movie, hoping to gain any insight into how good or bad it will be. Till then, I pray to zombie jesus that I am not disappointed. I mean, with sludge like “Dawn of the Dead 2” lining the bottom of the barrel, one can only go up…right?

A little bonus: if you haven’t had your fill of the zombie genre by now, here is an interesting little article by “Shawn of the Dead” actor/writer Simon Pegg and his take of fast vs. slow zombies:

I have been very busy lately. Standing before 30+ hungry, soul-sucking pairs of eyes every day for the past week. So it does occupy a little of my time--and energy--to say the least.

But I thought I'd at least leave you with some reading to keep you busy for a while. Something much more clever than anything I'd spew out. Perhaps something a little too "thinky" for a Thursday morning? But when you consider that: "American adults in general do not understand what molecules are (other than that they are really small). Fewer than a third can identify DNA as a key to heredity. Only about 10 percent know what radiation is. One adult American in five thinks the Sun revolves around the Earth, an idea science had abandoned by the 17th century." (New York Times)

Maybe folks should start using their heads again.

One side can be wrong .

An again, for reference: The claims of "intelligent design."
