So I have a crapload of pics to upload and a recap of my LA trip and MY BIG SHOW to write and a round up of the beautiful ungodly hot wedding I attended with the LA crew last night and lots of people to thank and honestly?

All I can think about was how absolutely shitty Indiana Jones and the blah blah Crystal Skull was.

Have you seen it? I'd heard the stories. That Frank Darabont had spent 2 years of his life writing a screenplay that Harrison Ford and Spielberg thought was brilliant, but little bratty George Lucas didn't. There was the interview I read with GL saying that all the critics were sharpening their knives because they were going to hate it, but he didn't care because he is George Lucas.

But then there was the trailer. There was the hat and the whip and the da duh da DAH! Duh duh DA! And Marion! and Indy getting the crap beat out of him! Cate Blanchett! Good times! It was my childhood and Milk Duds and Coke and summer and the promise of something wonderful.

My awesome, awesome friend Jill babysat Harlow so Caleb and I could catch it at the Cinerama Dome, one of our favorite old haunts. I got my Milk Duds, my coke, and 2 hours of absolute disappointment.

I don't want to say anything more for fear of spoiling it for those who haven't seen it. For those of you who have, what did you think? What do you think was the plot of that now-mythic Frank Darabont script?

What would you have done differently?

I'll take the winning plot suggestion, film it in claymation, dub it in Esperanto and stick it in my food processor and I bet you it would still kick IJATKOTCS's ass.

George, if you are lurking,please, please, please take me up on this.
