But I'm not alone, oh no. There's plenty of discussion on the InterWeb of, by, and for people similarly afflicted, and it's curing me of my obsession quickly enough, mostly because hot diggety people can't spell or punctuate worth a damn! Ack!

So far I've read through entirely too much of IMDB 's message boards on the movie (this was because I read in an AlterNet article that Cornel West has a part in Reloaded, which I had to verify, and sonofagun he does!) and wow. It makes me feel incredibly literate, really it does. Sigh. Anyway, I'm just about done rotting my brain on that, although I'll probably have to give in and download me the Animatrix episodes I've missed. And then maybe I'll be able to do some dishes and get to the library and generally approximate having a life. Maybe.

Edited to add: I'm still sorting out the plot of Reloaded at this point, since I think at times I got too distracted by the shiny to actually catch what the hell was going on. Of course, "what the hell happened?" blurs into "what the hell did that mean?" in my brain entirely too easily. Sigh. One thing is clear, though: Hugo Weaving rocks so HARD! Mitzi the Malevolent --- I mean, Agent Smith --- was one of my favorite things about the first movie, and in Matrix Reloaded he just looks like he's having all the fun! Yay actors looking like they're having a good time! Yay! Ok, done now.

In non-Matrix-related news, I might have another student soon --- this time, high-school pre-calc stuff. Whee!

And finally, a big LiveJournal welcome to [livejournal.com profile] poppydos.

THAT's who that familiar looking council member was.

Dude, I don't think I'd recognize Cornel West if he was philosophizing at me about racism in society. Ok, well, I'd probably have a good guess, but still... Are you that far ahead of me, or do you have him confused with someone else? I thought the lady councillor who gave Commander Lock the smackdown looked really familiar, but either I'm misreading the credits or she's some Australian actress I've never heard of.

In other news, the neighborhood wiener dog may be better-trained than Mushroom the Useless, but he's still not smart enough to stay out of other people's houses. I just had to chase him away from Iggy's food dish. What the fuck?

Oh, and I meet my new tutoring student at 3:30 TTh, starting tomorrow. Woo!

I agree with you completely.

(In general, and about Matrix Reloaded and Hugo.)

I think Hugo Weaving is rapidly approaching Tim Curry in "just plain fun to watch"-ness, and that's really saying something.

Wow! I was just thinking that earlier today! They're both guys with a recognizable face who just keep popping up, playing different characters all over the place! By the way, I've got the entire Animatrix episodes, though I'm not sure how I would get them to you cuz it's a really big file.

Tim Curry is my favorite actor of all time, because even when he's in a totally awful movie (and he's done plenty of those) he always looks like he's having all the fun. But Hugo Weaving is getting up there in rockingness.

I was able to watch and/or download the 2 Animatrix episodes I'd missed yesterday with no problem (guess all the times it was broken or down or really slow was when everybody was watching them to get psyched up for Reloaded, and I'm just way behind the curve). Thanks for offering, though!
