I dont think anyone remembers what big screen releases used to be like, you'd get a build up for most of the year, then the release, then the hype didnt cease for perhaps the rest of the year or longer, the last film I can remember like it was the Batman movie by Tim Burton, the original, before it was released there were production TV shows, sticker books, teasers (which some people would call spoilers) in the press, magazines, on TV again, then the movie was out, it reception was headline news even, then there were books, magazines, NES games, arguably the original animated TV series in which Mark Hamill was the Joker owes its creation to that movie, certainly most of its style.
Star Wars was like that too, with the whole merchandising revolution, then waves and waves of TV animated shows, like Droids and Ewoks, which are kind of overlooked and unremembered.It is a luxury to be understood - Ralph Waldo Emerson

edit: (more of a sidenote) It occurred to me that the way music is released has changed conversely. It used to be standard for bands and musicians to release at least one album per year (often 2 a year, in the case of The Beatles), whereas now it's not uncommon to see bands releasing albums 3-5 years apart. Whereas Disney promises not only a new SW film from the new trilogy every 2 years, but spinoff films during the "inbetween years," whereas we had to wait 3 years between films in the original trilogy (not to mention 16 years between the original and prequel trilogies, yet this time we only had to wait 10 and a half years between trilogies).

I'll use the intestines for a collage. The gums ill slowly melt down with a blowtorch, he'll be awake for that though.

Mother is irritated by the lack of holiday spirit in the house. This happens every year and we tell her to put up a tree and play music if she wants, but instead she chooses to close herself up in the bedroom and cry. And since my father is an oblivious empathetic black hole, it always falls to me to play the mediator.
But I'm feeling just a little too numb for that right now. Don't have the energy to push this wheel through another cycle. It's just easier to stay out and away. Until nightfall, at least.
