I mentioned on the air today that I really wanted to see the movie Drag Me To Hell when it comes out this weekend, and that I haven't seen X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Terminator: Salvation or Star Trek yet, even though I really want to. But I did see Angels & Demonsthis week.

Then I got this email from listener Adam in Green Bay:
So, you chose to go to "Angels and Demons" over "Wolverine" or "Star Trek"? I think you lost some man points there. I've seen the two latter movies, and may see the former on disc. Not to sure, I was a huge fan of the book, and normally find it disappointing to watch the movies. Wolverine and Star Trek were awesome. You should really see them.

Thanks Adam. Yeah, I've lost some man points. But any guy who's married has probably had the same conversation that my wife and I had earlier this week:

Me: "Hey, let's see a movie tonight"
Her: "Sure, what's out"
Me: "What about Wolverine?"
Her: "Uh, no."
Me: "Star Trek is really supposed to be awesome."
Her: "I have no desire to see that."
Me: "Terminator Salvation?"
Her: [rolls her eyes]
Me: "How about Dance Flick?"
Her: "What??"
Me: "Just kidding. Angels and Demons?"
Her: "OK."

This is why my Netflix queue has over 200 movies in it. And why I probably won't actually see Drag Me To Hell this weekend. Oh well.

Yesterday was the anniversary of Moe Howard's death. Moe, or as I like to call him, "The Angry Stooge," was the glue that held the other stooges together. Larry's the dumb one. Curly's the crazy one. Moe's the smart one... if that can be said of any of the Stooges. Moe always had the plan... the job... the scheme. Then the other two would get out of line, and Moe would have to smack some sense into them. Of course, then it would escalate until everyone was slapping, bonking, nose-grabbing, ear-twisting, and eye-poking each other to the point that everything fell apart. Simple but brilliant, every time.

Of course, it wasn't always Moe, Larry, and Curly. We can't forget the "Lesser Stooges" including Shemp (actually the older brother of Moe and Curly, and the funniest of the Lesser Stooges), then Joe Besser, then Curly Joe DeRita. Not as brilliant as Curly... but still damn good.
