Check it out.

I think this answers some questions about the mediocre first week of Movie sales. All the people who've been dragging their feet on seeing the series are now rushing to see it before watching the film. The next two weeks of Box office numbers could get really interesting.

Serenity grossed 10 Mil opening weekend, but to put this in perspective, the highest grossing film of the weekend was Flightplan, at 15 mil. Big name actor, most popular genre in film (psych thriller) and a huge parental heartstring draw... All that, and Serenity still wound up in second place.

The box office can be funny, people want 100mil in the first three days. But to look at it from another perspective, they recouped 25% of their expenses in 3 days. Word of mouth will be the life or death of Serenity now, it seems that everywhere I turn, people who should see this movie haven't for some reason.

On Saturday, I went to an old friend's birthday. Everyone there was a hardcore geek, yet more than half of them hadn't seen the movie.

The first third of TIME's interview of Joss Whedon and Neil Gaiman is up online. Check it out here.

Yeah, you read that right.

On related news, both of their films are coming out this Friday. Out of raw loyalty, I've got to brave the crowds and go see Serenity opening night. I'll probably see Mirrormask over the weekend. If anyone is interested in joining me, drop me a line.

Wednesday:
I'll be running another lost showing on my limping projector. Like last time, there will be some tech stuff creeping in around the edges of an otherwise lovely evening. I'm hoping to clean up the picture a bunch and just make a better run of it this time. New lenses will hopefully arrive before NEXT Wednesday, whereupon I'll be able to show off what my projector can really do.

I know my postings have been sparse as of late, and there's not much to be done about it. If I get a chance to catch my breath, I'll be sure to let you all in on all the various happenings in my apparently very busy life.
