Kelly and I saw "Men in Black II" tonight, and I guess it reveals how much I liked that film if I say that the high point of the show was the trailer for "Star Trek: Nemesis." It looks intriguing (to me anyway), but it's very creepy. It's like the movie is trapped in an Adore-era Smashing Pumpkins video, all black and gothed-out. So the trailer plays and gradually builds in tension, as the action pumps up and the music pumps up and then boom, it's over and the theater goes silent. And the woman behind me whispers to her date, "Trekkies scare me."

That trailer is now online if anybody cares.

Brexit Redux

Today's news. I don't follow this super-closely, so let me see if I understand the chain of events correctly here: 1) Prime minister David Cameron thinks the UK is soundly pro-EU, but there are a few niggling voices of opposition as he prepares to launch new pro-EU initiatives, so to quell any doubt and build momentum for his plans, he calls for a public vote that will put the matter to rest.
