Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong on our 18-hour round trip research jaunt to Salem, Massachusetts this week. I swear to you, every single piece of electronics I touched went haywire. Cameras with new batteries had no juice. The Magellan that had served us honorably and well sent us to the Jersey Turnpike. The Flip camera refused to shut down. And yes, I was involved in each of the above mishaps.
Welcome to April: month of dead electronics chez Bretton.
I'm not what you'd call a movie person. Sure, I like them well enough but it takes a lot to motivate me into the multiplex. So far it looks like I'll be lining up for popcorn and soda twice next month: for SEX AND THE CITY 2 and ROBIN HOOD.
Kevin Costner's take on ROBIN HOOD almost killed the legend for me but the trailer for the Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe version looks dangerously good.
