There's a huge party at C.I.'s tonight. I think we're all grabbing any time we can to blog.
I'm not a big Danny Schechter fan -- I used to be -- but I will applaud this column he wrote. It's very good and you should read it if you haven't already.
Today we went to San Diego to see some of the Comic-Con.
I wasn't dying to do that. I wanted to but I wasn't dying to. And that article where Joshua Jackson and other actors in struggling TV shows thought they were doing the world a favor by showing up didn't make me want to go.
But I'm glad we did and glad we took our daughter because she had a blast. She loved all the dress up and loved looking around. She could have stayed there all day and all night.
I'm not a Matt Damon film but I think I'll see his next movie. It's really Jodie Foster's film. But they showed a trailer -- is it a trailer if it's over five minutes? does that make it a 'sneak peak?' -- and Elisum or whatever it's called looks like it's going to be a really exciting film.
I almost went to a panel on Walking Dead but I don't care enough to waste my time on something that I don't even watch at the house. (I tried 2 episodes.)
Mainly we looked at comic books. My daughter likes colors. She really seems to make her selections based on that more than drawings or text or whatever.
We got back to C.I.'s late (party had already started) and my daughter just wanted her comics and wanted them then. Which was fine. I'm sure I was the same way as a kid.
But there are some stories -- when you read them to her -- that she's interested in and some that she's not (and she'll tell you) and it's clear that the only connection to the comics she picked was the really colorful.
Oh, we got some Ms. Marvel comics. Vintage.
She saw those and like the ones near the end of the title's run (the all black costume with, I think, a red belt). So since she liked those, I bought some other issues of the title and hopefully, she'll like those too.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
