I don’t have a lot to write about today– nothing significant has happened to me in recent days. I did go to see the TRANSFORMERS movie yesterday, and I loved it. It’s not big on story, by any means… .but it’s such a fun, high-action popcorn flick that I was enthralled from start to finish. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more… kinetic… movie than TRANSFORMERS. Michael Bay is, if nothing else, a master at depicting mayhem and peril on a grand scale. And the battles between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS in the city in the last third of the film were truly spectacular (although they were at times confusing with all the jaw-dropping destruction going on). I was never the target audience for the original TRANSFORMERS cartoons and toys, as I was too old to get into them– but I have an appreciation for their appeal, I think… and I’d be curious to hear what true fans of the franchise feel about this big-screen depiction of their beloved characters.

I was interviewed by the Doug Zawisza for COMICBLOC,COM a couple of months back…. and that interview is finally posted up on their site. You can read it HERE if you’re so inclined. Doug is a great guy, and I really enjoyed our interactions for this interview. As I said, the interview was done some time back, so you should keep that in mind with some of the answers– such as to Doug’s question about the web site, which has, indeed, since then been redesigned by Steven Gettis.

OK.. that’s it for the start of another week.

This is Entry 401.
