Once again upgraded the MT-Blacklist which takes care of comment spam. Those sneaky spammers posted on old entries (not that anyone really reads those!) and got through my spam filter. After upgrading the spam filter (yes robin, I'll do ours next) I went through using the regular expression matcher (meaning it matches words) and deleted all those offending entries.
If you're having a problem with content spam, definitely install MT-Blacklist. caveat, don't install it if you're using MT 3.0 but since no-one I know is using that I don't think you'll have too much to worry about

shrek2

Saw Shrek 2 last night and it's hilarious. There were lots of references to other movies, pop culture, and etc which resulted in chuckles. I think I will probably rent the dvd, too, just for the outtakes. Plot-wise, I didn't feel it was as good as the first one but with all the attention to detail and great comedy, it was a lot of fun.
I really loved how prince charming was voiced by Rupert Everett (I didn't know this before hand) which is hilarious because the prince is this fluff-headed vainglorious pretty-boy. (Not the squeek squeek high voice type of pretty boy) I could see the prince smooching himself in the mirror. And anyhow, Rupert Everett is awesome.
Anyhow. Lots of fun on the big screen. If you're looking to see something funny, consider Shrek 2. If you're pondering what to see and care about your money expediture and big screen experience, perhaps see Troy (Van Helsing isn't worth the full price. Saw that last week).

angel is entertaining

Angel is ever so entertaining. Well, not the show so-much but the downloads section I had a hard time containing my laughter. I'm especially entertained by a 32 piece do-it-yourself (diy) lifesize poster of the cast members (including James Marsters). Did you ever notice that he wasn't all that much taller than Buffy? Buffy's only about 5 feet and a couple inches with her vamp-slaying boots. So (8 pages -1 page due to cropping) * 11 inches tall *1ft/12inches = 6.4 ft uhh-huh. And then there's the tag lines, "This is a 3.7MB file, so it may take a while to download, but isn't it worth it to have this hottie all to yourself?" No, I'm not going to print out 32 sheets of paper and somehow trim the .5 margin required by my poster and tape them together.
On the other hand, if I ever find a Mahoromatic paste together(decently clad, please), I'll get some iron-on transfer paper and a huge pillow. James will finally have a life-sized mahoro. I'll probably use the huge pillow to smack him around with. (It wasn't me, it was the killer maid android!)

caught myself

So the system is back up now.
While wandering about redecorating my desktop I came across cometzone cursors but I came to my senses in time. The Hello Kitty cursors were particularly cute, but then I remember how I want to re-enact this bash.org quote or enacting remote violence whenever some site is overstylized (especially when they replace my cursor with some mysteriously uselss icon. insert swear words here). So, I decided to spare the whole three visitors and myself some fury and annoyance.

Replaced the rss feed with a full rss feed version from dive into mark since I use it to check up on blogs and was tired of seeing the "quotelet" (not quite long enough for a quote). It's still at the same url. Enjoy!
