“Modern man thinks he loses something – time – when he does not do things quickly. Yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains, except kill it.”
― Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving
We stand poised for two of potentially the greatest geek months in history. Captain America The Winter Soldier releases wide tomorrow and is at 91% at Rotten Tomatoes at the time of publication. Sunday, the greatest fantasy show in television history returns – Game of Thrones – for its fourth season. Tuesday, gamers get the next LEGO fix with LEGO The Hobbit. On April 16th, Chris Nolan’s cinematographer Wally Pfister makes his directorial debut with the exceedingly cool-looking Transcendence and then May is one of the most packed months in movie history: Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla, X-Men Days of Future Past and Maleficent. I’m going to be a very busy nerd.
Killing Time milestones this week: The site passed 66,000 hits this week, 1650 posts, and 20 followers just by Tumblr! The geography stays Greenland-free, which I’m beginning to suspect is the result of a French Guianan smear campaign….however, that may be massively paranoid.
The most viewed post of the week was my review of Noah by almost 2 to 1.
