Back home. Whew. I don't think I got a full night's sleep in Boston.

The highlights:
Saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with haplo3k & co.
Had burgers and frappes (say: frap, not frappe') at Bartley's with haplo3k + Wumpus.
Repurchased a book of Kipling verse that I used to own and lent to someone. It's been expanded since!
Met co-workers & my boss. They're mostly good folk.
Walked the Freedom trail
Visited the USS Constitution -- something of a disappointment. Not much of its glorious history is on display there.
Caught up with etarip. Inherited sunglasses.
Fully grokked Boston drivers.

Seriously -- I think I like Boston drivers almost as much as LA drivers.

On a side note -- and the original reason for this post -- I did a little reading about aurochs, passenger pigeons, and other extinct critters. There's a group attempting to clone aurochs from bone DNA and I realized that I fully support this. After all, a great number of species went extinct because they had a desirable quality. One such quality: they were tasty!

That kinda implies that the critters left around are the ones that weren't as tasty. I see no reason why (relatively, in some cases) ancient man should be the only ones allowed to know the taste of those critters.

I super dug it in spite of the fact that I dislike the one character that Michael Cera plays in every film. This may be because I read & liked the comics (and they do a pretty good adaptation).

It may also be because I play tons of video games and chuckle a bit when someone is defeated and a bunch of coins are dropped. It's a movie that really doesn't involve brain cells. It involves having had the sort of childhood (or adolescence/adulthood/whatever) where you played video games like Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter, etc. and enjoying when someone shamelessly strokes it off along with the other 30 people's childhoods in a dark theater.

I think you'll like it. gorthok will almost certainly appreciate it. I don't believe it will be the best movie ever for either of you. In my mind, it ranks up with Speed Racer for awesomeness though.

I guess I did neglect to mention that awesomeness, but it's like deepthought. It is only a fraction of the awesomeness to comen...

I'm somewhat less assured of my awesomeness, but it does please me to have done a small amount of right in the world. 8)
