Movie Watching

This weekend I watched Dogtown and Z-Boys, leading me to realize that Stacy Peralta is the Perry Ferrell of skateboarding.

Also (not on purpose -- I was working on something else and then got sucked in by the horribleness of it when it came on TV and then I couldn't make myself change the channel) I watched Legend, a 1985 movie that the TV blurb describes as "Elves and a woodland boy save a princess and a unicorn from the Lord of Darkness and his goblins." I am almost 100% certain that the only reason that this film made its way onto television this weekend is that someone wanted to embarrass Tom Cruise because of all the bizarre nonsense he's been up to lately.
