Better a Crow by Karaechi
Better a Crow
Royals –"And we'll never be royals. It don't run in our blood. That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz."
The crow is a homely, drab creature – not flashy or bright or blessed with impressive plumage – but he doesn't long for the life of a "royal". He isn't tempted by the insubstantial allure of the King Bird's green feathers. He has found the "buzz" – signified by the bee's wing in his mouth – he desires, and he is content.
  • Listening to: the lateness of the hour.
  • Reading: Taggarung...and Pony Club shtuff.
  • Watching: Sherlock
  • Eating: Vitamin C
  • Drinking: Water
I was blessed with the opportunity to see The Dark Knight Rises last night with my parents, and I must say I enjoyed it thoroughly. Sorry, folks – no spoilers. All I will say is that it did not disappoint (me, at least). Bane may not be the Joker, but he was dark enough to prevent me from snickering at him.

   I cannot say the same for the Man of Steel preview.
   I must confess, I cannot – and never could – take Superman seriously. This is probably blasphemy on some level, but I just can't. If I am going to enjoy a movie and care for a character, there has to be conflict; conflict often comes in the form of some sort of peril for the hero. And unless you've got Kryptonite in your back pocket, you are not a threat to Superman.
   It doesn't matter if a jet plane with dozens of screaming passengers is hurtling towards the earth with its wings snapped off and its engines on fire: you know Superman will save the day.
   So, just when I thought I couldn't take Superman any less seriously, this gem of a trailer came out.
   I barely remember the preview, because I was laughing too hard.
   I am a soundtrack geek. I own at least 35 soundtracks, and have yet to acquire all my favorites.
   Thus, when the Man of Steel preview appeared, it was accompanied by a certain track from The Fellowship of the Ring. Specifically, the piece where Gandalf had fallen off the bridge of Khazad-dûm. All I could see in my mind's eye was Frodo screaming "Noooo!" in slow-motion, and the other hobbits weeping inconsolably.
   I laughed for a solid three minutes.
   We soundtrack geeks are not to be trifled with.

   And, as for the last, I must confess I'm a bit of a Sherlock Holmes fan. (What? You figured that out by my gallery? Is it that obvious?)
   Ahem...I love the original stories and both the films featuring Robert Downey Jr., but I'm definitely interested in seeing the various other "versions." So, what better time to check out the BBC show Sherlock when one is trapped in the house with a sinus cold?
   I must say...I'm impressed. I was a little skeptical, being that the series is set in the present, but after seeing it, I applaud. I have a weakness for snark, and Sherlock provides it. I loved the writing, was impressed by the acting (TV acting tends to annoy me), and thought they did an excellent job of fitting Sherlock's eccentricities into the present.
   In short, the Sherlock RDJ depicted is still my favorite, so far, but I thoroughly enjoyed BBC's interpretation.
   I may have to buy the soundtrack...
