I've been having way too much fun with Wordle, which creates "word clouds" out of text pasted into the leetle box.
First, because I wanted to see whether I mentioned Deadpool or Deathstroke more in Weapon Chapter 6, I did a Chapter 6 word cloud. And it came out looking totally cool. Bonus points because they have a color set that's mostly red and black. W00t.
Naturally I couldn't stop THERE. How could I leave Wordle before seeing what Weird Al's Angry White Boy Polka looked like?

(OMG how fantastic would a Cable & Deadpool movie be???)
Will Atlas Shrugged ever be a movie?
I love the book, but man, I can see why trying to make it into a movie could be daunting. Talk about mammoth texts with a lot of nuanced plot to get through. Whew.
More movie news: Wanted's McAvoy faced danger.
Um...why haven't I heard of this movie? Seriously, how did I completely miss it? Anyway, McAvoy is cool.
And finally, LOOOK. Watchmen action figures from DC and others.
