Watched Madagascar 2 last night with AM and we both got some good laughs out of it. The main characters don’t actually add much to the humor, but I suppose they are necessary for the story. The real stars are the penguins, monkeys and lemars.
I don’t know if Halestorm is secretive enough, but it sure does make a solid superhero name. Why would I want my identity secret anyway? Because villains would attack my family and friends? Yeah right. My powers would be so extensive and powerful that not even a crazed lunatic would even consider attacking ANYBODY I know. The most appropriate question to ask me/Halestorm is, what powers do you not have? Then, I would chuckle and fly away….at the speed of light…leaving a super-strength-style crater…burning through the ceiling with my heat vision…catching all the debris with my mind…hearing all the reporters trash talk my bad interview audibly from miles away…listening to the thoughts of the same reporters about my tights…stretching my arm to catch a collapsing building and sling-shotting it back into place…and then going invisible.
I needed to read a book for a report sometime in high school and we had a long list of books I had been required to read in previous years (Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, The Great Gatsby…the usuals), but one book caught my attention and I hadn’t yet read it. Something Wicked This Way Comes was actually very enjoyable, but the paper was due and I needed to write a paper before I had finished the book…so naturally, I wrote the paper with cliff-hangers for the teacher. Luckily she never asked me about the end of the book because I still have yet to read it. I used the teacher’s copy of the book for the report, so I turned it in with my paper. I would probably read the rest of the book if I had a copy, but I can’t justify buying a book of which I have read 90%.
