Haven't we been here before  
They're making Captain Planet into a live-action movie. I remember watching it when I was a child, but it's so dated that it's probably better left in the twentieth century. I'm probably going to see it, anyway, just for the pure horror. I wonder if he'll still have a mullet.

I saw the first couple episodes again recently, and...well. The American kid is so obnoxious and ignorant that it's insulting. And the girl from the Soviet Union is perfect, to the point of being annoying; and she calls the American "My sweet imperialist dog." What?! Apparently, in The New Adventures of Captain Astro Planet, though, they changed her ethnicity to "Eastern European." That's cheap.

I've got a story that's just not writing itself. But then again, I also have an essay on Japan that's also not writing itself. Once again, haven't we been here before?

I have an idea that I want to get out for Christmas. We'll see if that'll happen; after all, I managed to get that drawing for Halloween done, right?
