I just watched Sin City. Freaking cool movie. Weird, violent, but cool. I liked that it was about the city, so they could do a bunch of short stories and they didn't need to hold together.

My favorite character was Marv. I loved the kind of crazy he had. Made his story possible.

It was funny, in a weird and strange way, the whole movie was. Sometime people say, "the stuff that nightmares are made of." Or maybe just I say that. Either way, it's something to say which implies scariness. I realized, though, watching Sin City that every time I've used that phrase "the stuff that nightmares are made of," I wasn't using it right. I was using it for scary things that I never once dreamed about. Sin City, though, looked in the way it was shot and the way people were moving and the things they were doing and the way they were talking and the level of sound effects, like all my worst nightmares. Weird.

I do hope you supplement your diet with more wholesome fare.

Stuff of nightmares? I daresay it would be a good thing if it were only such.

Isn't "the stuff of nightmares" a cliché by now? I would think it would be...
