and in unrelated news:

I went to see 'John Carter' last night. So glad I did! I don't know why this movie has bombed so badly at the box office, because it's just great fun, and if you're an old-fashioned pulp sci-fi fan, you definitely shouldn't miss it.

My best description? 'Spartacus' meets 'Star Wars' with a dash of Victoriana. And cowboys. Who would not watch that?!

Oh, oh! and it's a bit of a TV's 'Rome' reunion in there too. Cirran Hinds, Polly Walker and James Puresex - er, Purejoy - um, PureFOY. Yes. That's entirely what I meant to type really for sure absolutely.

had a surprising amount of heart, too. One scene in particular. You'll know if you've seen it.

Because there is a group of people who are trying to protest during the month of march. No movies, no downloads (legal and illegal), no buying any digital media of any kind.

Plus it really isn't a bomb, when compared to other movies released at that time.

Not a lot of people know what John Carter is because the real title is the Princess of Mars but they changed it.

Anywhoo, that is my two cents. :)

Silly me wasn't paying proper attention to protests, you see.

It did lose Disney $200 mill though, which is still not exactly fabulous takings. :(
