Constantine in an enjoyable movie: a lot of “jump” moments, a lot of catholic-inspired misunderstandings of things. Good visually; some great comic-book style shots (the movie is based on a comic book, but according to fans of the comic, it’s an unworthy adaptation), but not something that you’d want to take the kids to go and watch.
It’s also a major advertisement for not-smoking.

This one’s bound to cause a stir in the "blogosphere" – A-list blogger Jason Kottke (whose site I’ve been reading since 1997, I think) is quitting his day job, and seeking to get paid (by readers, not by advertisers) to write his blog. I think I might end up becoming a “micro-patron” of his, on general principle.
