Hold your tongue until Dec 13th.In his defence, Denby pointed fingers at the studios for releasing “eight good movies all at once in the last five weeks of the year.” In short, rather than write about The Sitter, one of the minor movies that will be put into release this week, Denby chose to dive into some of the juicy holiday offerings.Now a bit of a reality check.The embargo on movie reviews for Dragon Tattoo is until Dec the 13th. Lisbeth and her scary sexy self don’t actually hit screens until Dec 21st.The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is based on the incredibly popular series by Stieg Larsson and presumably follows closely the already lauded Swedish original which has earned over a $100 million.The review is quite positive, describing director David Fincher’s adaptation as mesmerizing and the lead Rooney Mara as a star in the making.If it seems that Sony is overreacting, perhaps it’s because with a movie where the source material is so well known, Denby is taking away the biggest reason to see the film. Just like the Twilight series, many of the people who go see the American adaptation will be pretty familiar with what happens to Lisbeth and Mikael.

I currently traveling with a Matador Hip Pack (1.7oz/48g) sling style to hold my in flight stuff on me (earphones, passport, wallet, etc), and carry my EDC (umbrella, water, etc) after I land, but I find it a tad too small. While it can fit a whole 500ml bottle of water in there, it can hardly carry anything else..

Speed, at least in its lower reaches of the mechanical order, always operates to separate, to extend, and to amplify functions of the body. When information moves at the speed of signals in the central nervous system, man is confronted with the obsolescence of earlier forms of acceleration, such as road and rail,” [or TV and Internet] . What emerges is a total field of inclusive awareness.
