Hey, where'd everyone go?

Just saw Daredevil, which I enjoyed quite a bit despite some nagging concerns over the general displacement of air throughout the film.

Afterwards, the traditional standing around discussing it didn't happen, as I exited the restroom and found no sign of my friends. Checked the arcade, checked the parking lot for their cars, checked my voicemail, and went home.

There had been talk of a bar earlier, but for them to make it before last call would have been an act of desperation bordering on alcoholism. Too much effort with too little to gain. And I joke about this from time to time, but the fact is, the claim that it's about spending time with your friends falls apart the moment it interferes with that. When drinking pulls you away from a social gathering, you can't call it social drinking. The need comes from somewhere else.

Ah well. It was a mistake for me to stay out this long. Another hour or two wouldn't have done anybody any good, so I guess they saved me from myself in their own negligent little way.

Goin' to sleep now.

hatchet buried
Sounds fair.

I usually leave heated discussions up, to refer back to and keep myself honest. This one would have been particularly strong that way, but I can respect the choice to remove your half of it, and will of course do the same.

..or something remarkably close to it. Screening rather than deleting. It's out of the public eye, at least.

Very rarely find excuses to use that function. It's quite nice.

Re: hatchet buried
That would appear to rest solely in your domain. I just get the little red X button.

Um, how did you like Daredevil, and what were your concerns about the 'Air'
I really enjoyed the movie. I was never a big reader of Daredevil, but from what I know, it seemed like a faithful interpretation(But isn't Fisk supposed to be FAT not just big?)

I liked that they ended the way good comics end. I like that they didn't off what is normally a reappearing character. I liked that in making a movie, they came up with a way for us to 'experience' daredevils sight. I liked a lot of the movie... even the costume was great.

I hated that Jay Leno made a stupid joke saying "Why does Daredevil's costume have eyeholes?" -- Jay's writers NEED to watch films before they have him speak about them on National TV.
