First of all, new Man of Steel trailer, thank you for making me even more excited about the film than I was when the first teaser came out. Although some of your V.O. stuff sounds too melodramatic, and I don't love your music like I loved "Freedom Fighters" in that 3rd Star Trek trailer, you've given me the idea that the movie is probably going to be both an inventive, worthwhile reboot and an epic SFX extravaganza with a giant, pondering heart. (It might even make me forget Superman Returns!)
Perhaps most noteworthy of all, new Man of Steel trailer, you showed a more "human" Kal-El by letting him have a beard and a hairy chest, which seems kind of monumental in this over-waxed day and age. Yes, he has a beard and a hairy chest in the movie, but you, new Man of Steel trailer, could've just left that out, fearing what some hairophobes would think. But you didn't. You didn't, by god. And that's just swell. I mean, he's SuperMAN not Superlady, right? Right.
I don't even need to know how he's gonna shave his face. Seriously, it doesn't matter. What matters is that he's a man; and if he is indeed a "super" man, then he can probably figure out some goddamn secret way to shave. And you know what? -- he probably doesn't need to explain it to anybody.

Space hemorrhoids aren't gonna cure themselves, people, so instead of buying just another burrito or something, please give a little to Space Hospital. This is no joke -- those hemorrhoids are out there; they're big and red and they're mutating. Only with your help can they be stopped.

Have a look at the eclectic first issue of Far Enough East (H.A.L. Publishing's new online literary journal), of which I am a part. There's some really cool stuff in here:

This film is about white men who say things to each other and sometimes don't say things to each other. When they're not doing either of these two things, they often say things to each other while not saying things to each other. Also, there's a mole and I'm asleep...

You can find some good questions, and some pretty-okay responses by me, if you open this link:
If you don't like good questions, and pretty-okay responses by me, then have a look at this tasty picture of a cruller (not bad, eh?):

It made me tired. There were so very many words. After a while, I went outside and stared up at the cloud-skimmed waxing moon. I thought, Is moonburn a thing?
I heard in my head that voice-over from Dune -- Paul Atreides thinking in a whisper: "The second moon."
Snapping me out of this dork trance, Buddy the dog sat down at my side, his paw resting on my bare foot. He was like, "What're you looking at?" and then the coyote cries turned his head toward the south, and we just stood out there, both of us staring at separate interests, dog and dork bonding in the humid night, the rest of the world --in that moment-- gone from our minds.
I'm sure the debate ended in victory for us all.
