if you're going to use a picture of me, don't use one of my old Human ones.

Use a newer more flattering one please.

That must be some pretty cold water if you have to wear a fur coat while swimming in it.

Even summers here in Western Washington are a bit cool.(Except for two or three weeks a year, the water never gets out of the 30's)

Besides I can't seem to find the zipper on this fur coat....

Maybe because its velcro?

(God I so luv sending a thread slipping into oblivion.)

What was this originally all about again? Green Arrow?

btw, water here rarely gets to freezing. I wish at times it did. Especially in summer.

I don't usually post anything from my site, but I got contacted by a PR rep for Subway today and they sent me info on a promotion in the L.A. area that could score you a chance to attend the premiere as well as free movie tickets and I want to get the word out to other GL fans.

Here's a link to the info on the Subway / GL campaign (again, L.A. area only)

Early review/comments about the Green Lantern film are very positive at the moment.

All the world needs now is Roger Ebert to validate Green Lantern. Of course, I am kidding. Make your own minds.

Still, positive feedback does its job; gets one excited.

Maybe these people who loved the early viewing of Green Lantern on twitter are nobodies, but it's still nice to see the film is resonating with people already.

Link to these reviews, if you please? I checked Rottentomatoes and there are no reviews there yet.

Note: They are not proper reviews, but positive comments as per twitter but still a nice reaction so far.

Also director Robert Meyer Burnett apparently saw it:

GREEN LANTERN ****ing ROCKED. The 3D was AWESOME. As a lifelong DC fan, the opening ten minutes made me squeal like schoolgirl

Believe it. The first ten minutes will make you believe. The 3D is also outstanding.

GREEN LANTERN was terrific fun. The fact that it works at all is a miracle, but it really does cook. The first ten minutes sold me

It's not campy at all. The humor is earned. And Mark Strong as Sinestro was AWESOME

So-Frakking-Un-Believable!!! I'm still spinning w/ delight & utter fangirl satisfaction!! #GREENLANTERN IS GO!!!

#GREENLANTERNCORP be sure to stay until the end of the 1st credit roll for the BIG PAYOFF!! U won't be disappointed!!

( thatīs what I recommend, too!!)

Torn between #MarkStrong as #Sinestro & #RyanReynolds as #GreenLantern on who rocked more! Hmm? Think we have a tie. Better be a sequel

Just done with Green Lantern screening and I must say, I really enjoyed it, jetlag and lack of sleep notwithstanding!


It helped that Blake Lively is such a dream onscreen. Oh, and Reynolds wasn't too bad either. Less talk and less clothes is when he shines.

#GreenLantern is spectacular! Loved Ryan Reynolds-his wry sense of humour and that green-covered body of his


You will not recognize Peter Saarsgard in #GreenLantern - he made me oh-so uncomfortable! Blake Lively is just as stunning as a brunette

Gosh, where did all these people see the movie and how did you luck into following all of them?


EDIT: Gee, based on this I did some searching and all I keep finding are recaps of the same few tweets. Hopefully, those are all the tweets and they didn't cherrypick the positive ones to build a buzz. Because, gosh, the fact that no ojne person had no single issue with any aspect of the film (not even a minor nitpick) comes off as....suspicious to me.



But I'm still hoping the film will be keen.
