Just forget the words and sing along

Monday, October 17, 2005

Over the weekend, I watched Mallrats again. My favourite bit of dialogue is still the debate about Superman's sex life. "The only way he could bang regular chicks is with a Kryptonite condom. But that would kill him."

Then, I watched Smallville this morning. Huh. Here's what's gone on in the first three episodes this season:

Episode 1: Clark loses his powers.
Episode 2: Clark loses his virginity to Lana.
Episode 3: Clark regains his powers.

I can't help but wonder if the writers engineered it like that so they wouldn't have to contend with the "Kryptonite condom" debate.

Here's two words that'll fire up your soul.

Stamp collecting!

Because I clicked on something I shouldn't have, I now get Canada Post's stamp collecting magazine. And they have an interesting article in the latest issue. Of course, they borrowed it from the Canadian Stamp News, which is THE stamp collector's magazine.

They ran a poll of stamp collectors to find the best stamps that Canada Post issued in 2004. The two categories were "Favourite" (which ones you liked the best) and "Most Relevant" (which is the thing most worthy of getting a stamp). Here was the breakdown:

Favourite stamp of 2004: Pets. Kids frollicking with pets.
Most relevant stamp of 2004: 60th anniversary of D-Day.
Least favourite of 2004: Urban transit. Pics of subway trains.
Least relevant stamp of 2004: Year of the Monkey.

They also point out the irony that, even though "Pets" was voted the favourite, it also scored high on "Least relevant." (#3 in the top 10)
