Just Saw The Watchmen

It was mostly kind of "meh". FX are cool, but, these days, FX are common place. Boring, if there's nothing else to it. The best part of the movie (and it is great) are the parts with Jackie Earl Haley as Rorschach. When he tells his fellow inmates that they've got it wrong, that he's not trapped in their with them, but "you're trapped in here with me", you believe it. So compelling, and outstanding, is Jackie Earl Haley's performance as Rorschach that the rest of the movie and its $100 million dollars of special effects cannot compare. If the movie had been title "Rorschach", and it had been about him the entire time with the other characters only coming in relative to him, it would have been a much better movie. Not the graphic novel, I know, but still. A much better movie.

Ah, well. Whatcha gonna do? Jackie Earl Haley totally brings the goods to his performance. He's the main thing that makes watching the movie worthwhile. Nobody else feels fully realized. Maybe they just pale next to Jack Earl's performance. And general bad-assery.

In other news, if you're looking for a Fellowes Lighthouse Optical Mouse Pads, we got 'em for only $1.39. Cool.

How about Kaspersky 2009 Internet Security 3-User OEM. We got it for only $25.49. Beat that! With a stick. You can't do it, can you? So, give in and purchase now!

More soon. Later, my good friends.

Sun Microsystems Might Be Sold to IBM

Sun Microsystems might be sold to IBM, and it's stock is rising. Would certainly be the best thing for Sun. Maybe IBM could make a go of it--Sun certainly hasn't been able to manage anything on it's own.

In other news, you can get the Microsoft Office 2007 Master Kit (Media Only) from Software Supply Group for only $14.99 as of this posting. Good deal, good deal. No license, unfortunately, just the media, but if you need replacement media, this is a great way to get it.

As I may have mentioned before, we also have Windows Vista Business 32-bit full Version OEM for only $124.95 (again, as of this posting).

What else? I'm thinking, I'm thinking. Well, we've also got McAfee 2009 VirusScan Plus Full Version OEM . . . for only $8.95.

Well, that's it for now. More soon enough.

On About The New Tron, Not TR2N

New details of the plot have been released. Sounds very cool. Kevin Flynn created many of the world's top games as head of ENCOM (and, of course, he had a kid), then disappeared--and where did he disappear to? Where else? The computer world! Wheeen! Then acting ENCOM head (after Flynn's disappearance) Alan Bradley (author of the original eponymous Tron program) presents Flynn's son with information that leads him to search for his father in the computer world. There, it's apparently the CLU program, from the original, that has gone corrupt, and sort of acts as the Sark of the new inside-the-computer-world.

It just sounds mega-cool.

We used to have Tron 2.0, Killer App (for X-Box) in our list of software game titles. Alas, no longer. But we have plenty of other cool games. We also carry a variety of Electronic Toys, Business Software, Software for the Home, and more. So, stop on by sometime.

Also, I ought to mention that now has a SnaggStuff Community, where you can discuss the groovy new deals from on any given day. Here's the conversation for today (3-4-09), but tomorrow it will be different. Whatever, come on by and check it out!
