archeress, rhymes with queen

2007 went out like a lamb. we rang in the new year with eva green, a cowboy aeronaut, and an armored bear. plus, a couple of jugs of junmai-ginjo okuden kantsukuri ('mirror of truth'). hello 2008.

Was the Golden Compass any good? I liked the book, but heard they sanitized a lot of the Atheism.

david, why are free-thinkers considered atheists, i ask you? it was a damn fine story told on the screen. music terrible though.

Because God hates you if you don't love him the way Jesus taught!

Actually what I meant was I heard they dispelled a lot of the philosophy/metaphysics, if you will - but even Peter Jackson had to cut out some Tolkien for his films.

The actual story was I was in an airport security line and put my book in the bin to go through the x-ray machine, and when it came out, the security guard said (unprompted) "Don't see the movie - they neutered Pullman for the big screen." He mentioned something else about Catholic outrage, etc., Atheism and God, which stuck the Atheism term in my mind whenever I think of the book.

I'll probably still see it, though - working on the second book now.
