Judge Dredd

I am not a fan of Judge Dredd. Many years I ago I read to read a Judge Dredd comic, got about six or seven pages in and gave up – the story didn’t catch me, characters passed me by and I didn’t like the artwork.

But I was very excited the I heard that Judge Dredd was being made into a movie but only because Karl Urban was in it – I’ve mentioned before that I’m a fan of the man. Essentially that is why I wanted to watch the movie.

However, what I didn’t remember about Judge Dredd was that he wears a helmet. Dredd could have been anyone. I was quite disappointed.

I was also terribly disappointed in Man of Steel. I don’t like Superman but I love comic book movies, and the trailer looked so cool and awesome I thought it would be worth watching, but the movie is boring. The only thing I enjoyed about it was Superman’s cloak – it was all cloaky and cool. It reminded me a lot of how sometimes Batman’s cloak is drawn. Watching a movie for a cloak is well, a waste of time. And a bit strange.

Sponge

I sometimes feel my mind is like a sponge. But not in the traditional sense of the expression. In reality the water that the sponge soaks up can easily be squeezed out, or if the sponge is left somewhere, the bottom becomes a gooey mess of rotting sponge and stagnant water.

Things that I find really interesting and would like to pass on to others are easily squeezed out so my brains can fill up with arbitrary facts while the rest of my information absorption becomes the gooey mess.

The result is the highly annoying situation where someone is telling me about something that I know to be incorrect but I lack the require information to accurately correct them because it has either run out of my ears or mixed in the goop that oozes round the bottom of my skull.

This is only how I feel sometimes. Other times I don’t really take not of what my brain is doing just so long as it keeps me breathing.
