Well, here it is, late Sunday evening...and I've written nothing. Nothing! The TV has pretty much had me in its sway (your Stones reference for today), so the comics reviews and the Vinyl-O will have to wait a little while longer.

One quick note- Mrs. B, the Halloween enthusiast, picked up the Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktacular DVD yesterday on a shopping excursion to Walmart. Its early relase couldn't have pleased the folks at Cartoon Network. Anyway, we watched it as soon as we got home and it's pretty entertaining. Not quite as charming or clever as the source, because let's face it- 3-D animation is no substitute for Jill Thompson's whimsical line work, and the script seems to have been written down a bit, presumably for the wee folks out there and not the 40-year-old fanboys-and-girls who buy it for their admiration for Mrs. Azzurello. Still, much of it is lifted straight from the first book and the various characters, especially Skully and Count Max and family, are nicely realized by the voice actors.

Hopefully see you tomorrow, cats and kittens!
