Snake and Bake

I've learned a few things on this trip to the San Diego Comic-Con:

- Global warming is a bitch. Why did Mr. Al Gore invent it?

- If the world premiere 10-minute preview we saw is a faithful representation of the flick, Snakes on a Plane will not disappoint at all. I dunno what y'all want out of it, but I wanted a big, stupid action flick with a sense of humor. Lookin' good.

- Sammy Jackson is a funny, cool guy, but Thursday night we overheard him introducing Hootie and the Blowfish next door to our hotel with a version of his Ezekiel 25:17 speech, which we choose to interpret as a "famous people know and like other famous people" thing and less of a "Sam Jackson loves him some Hootie and the Blowfish" thing.

- Nerds still don't know enough about hygiene. Steve saw a guy trying to wash up in the men's room. So on the one hand, he knew he was stankin', but on the other, he didn't realize soap and deodorant are usually involved in smelling good.

The Snakes on a Plane panel: Kenan Thompson, Samuel L. Jackson, director David R. Ellis and a snake handler who earned that title professionally and not because he's lonely.

- Kenan is funny without Kel, but you still miss Kel.

- Corsets can give you big ol' puffy cleavage at the top, but if you're not careful, or you know, slim, they'll also give you big ol' puffy um well it doesn't cleave per se, but it's a big puffin of puff puff right there at the bottom of the corset. Very nice when paired with shorts.

- The marina venue next door to our hotel books a lot of has-been bands. Apparently Semisonic and The Verve Pipe were busy so Bruce Hornsby played on Friday. We wondered which Comic-Con celebrities would introduce him -- Hurley from Lost? Jennifer Love Hewitt? Zombie #2 from Dawn of the Dead? Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst or the guy from Wings? Our guess: Hootie.

- It's fine to dress up as your favorite superhero, but if you can't fill out an Elektra or Superman costume like the comics, then you just look like a dork in pajamas.

- Season 3 of Veronica Mars will have 3 mini-mysteries that span 3 or 4 episodes rather than 1 season-long uber-mystery. That is, if the CW doesn't cancel it first. Give it a chance, because it's the best show on TV you probably don't watch.

- Dumbrella is wicked awesome, or as Steve says, "Wicket awesome."
