F#@%ing SPAM

Okay, so I decided to check my blog before leaving work tonight (seduced by the high speed connection at work, again...) and I found 20 COMMENTS on my "Serenity" post from almost a month ago. I think maybe five of them had anything to do with the post, or this blog, or even came from actual human beings. Things have been chaotic in my life these past few weeks, and conseqently I've not been posting, or even checking, here for a while. But when the volume of spam begins to outweigh the post it's leeched onto, the time to do something has come. So on goes the verification feature on the comments. (Thanks Sharon, Christian and Rob for variously providing info on how to do this.)

Now if only I could start posting real stuff on here...

Okay, this isn't a review. It's more a sort of exhortation. Get out to the movies and see Serenity. Even if you've never seen an episode of Firefly, the cancelled-too-soon TV show it's based on. The movie works better than fine on its own terms. (If you are a fan of the show, the film packs quite a wallop -- at least it did for me.) I hear the film's been getting good reviews. It deserves them. I'd give it one if I were up to writing a review at the moment.

So if you're of a mind to see a movie and are inclined to take things on trust, you'll let me point you towards Serenity. I wouldn't steer you wrong.

Go. Now.
