five!

1. Boy, the Olympics have sure seen a lot of wolf tickets written on behalf of the women in my universe. All of the women in my office and half of the women on my friends list are openly lusting after this or that Olympic athlete (I don't know which one because the Olympics are super boring). I don't have a problem with it as such, it's just curious to see so many women behaving the way guys do all the time.

2. Hey! We're putting missiles in Poland! And Russia just invaded one of its neighboring nations! What year is it again?

3. Mad Men continues to be a beautifully made and occasionally astonishing show, but I don't think I've ever seen a television program where I so badly want every one of the characters to get run over by a bus. I could name a dozen moments just in the three episodes so far where one of the main characters behaves in a way so contrary to human decency that I started to wonder if the whole thing was a weird meta-narrative where everyone is in hell for various mortal sins.

4. Folks, come on. All we have to do is collectively swear not to go see this shitty new cartoon and George Lucas will stop making movies! UNITED WE STAND, people!

5. I inadvertently ripped off the AV Club for a Screengrab post today, but I'm not too worried, because no one reads the Screengrab. At any rate, critics are praising Woody Allen's new flick, Vicki Cristina Barcelona, to the high heavens, and as someone who's never entirely bought into the idea that he's anything but a great director of comedies, I'm always curious about what people think of him and his movies. I'm gonna list mine under a cut, but what are your favorite and least favorite Woody Allen movies? And do you think he's a great director?
