Unintentional Comedy

I guess on the bright side, they realized the problem (just) before they released it:

Twentieth Century Fox has pulled Brian Helgeland's occult thriller "Sin Eater" from its Jan. 17 berth because the special effects were unintentionally funny.
The title refers to an ancient order of rogue priests who would eat food off a corpse, taking unforgiven sins upon themselves and absolving the deceased. In the Heath Ledger starrer, a sin eater resurfaces in modern-day Rome, and begins to allow great evil to go unpunished.

The picture depicts sins flying out of the human body. Post-production insiders who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the problem was that Mill's "Sin Eater" effects were producing hilarity instead of fear. One insider described the exiting sins as "looking like calamari."

The End of Winter Tour

Geez, it's been a while since I posted. I've been traveling most of the time. Taking the kid on the road for a winter tour to grandparents and numerous other relatives. She's six months old now. Two teeth have come in, she is beginning to make an effort to crawl; she can sit on the floor without any support for about ten minutes before she falls over.Jabbering constantly. I'm constantly amazed that I haven't screwed her up, yet.
