Been out socializing in the real world yesterday and today, and we're tired, so this is just a quick update to keep things fresh round these parts. Most of the blogs on our links list have been passing this meme around...not sure who to credit with starting it, but just check out the links to see more. Apparently at the end of Final Crisis Superman has to supersing a supersong into some sort of machine to defeat Darkseid. To reiterate, Superman has to defeat this guy...

with just the power of his groove. And what song he actually sings is left up to the reader's imagination. That's kind of pointless, though, since we all know only one song could bear the pure sassy power to bring down the ultimate playa :

Yeah. So, we went to see Taken tonight, which was quite good. There's not really a whole lot to say about it, since you're getting exactly what you see on the commercial. It gets right to the action, which is brutal and efficient...Liam Neeson's character in this could give Daniel Craig/Bond a run for his money when it comes to wince-inducing acts of sudden violence. There's no surprises here, except maybe the lengths that our 'hero' will go to for his daughter...the kid gloves are off, filled with broken glass, and nailed to a baseball bat in this movie. But, yeah, no real twists, no sobering 'downer' ending, just a smart and satisfying action flick, the best we've seen since Shooter. In moderation, this is not a bad thing.

Ok, more tomorrow, including the review I teased in my last post. Drive safely.
