Alien vs. Predator

A teaser trailer for Alien vs. Predator is available on Apple’s site. There’s not much to see yet, but the premise sounds pretty cool. The release date on the site isn’t until next August, so you’ll have to wait some time for the real deal. In other Alien news, the long-anticipated Alien Quadrilogy nine-DVD boxed set of all four movies is due out December 2. Surprisingly enough, I have yet to see any of the Alien movies all the way through, so I think I’ll have to add this to my wish list…

World Beard & Moustache Championships

The Tidal Basin 4/2/2002
Yesterday, as I was waiting in line for a burrito at Chipotle (free to anybody dressed up as a burrito for Halloween, but one of the many tinfoil hats being recycled and passed around was good enough), I found myself in a conversation with the girl in line ahead of me. She was reading Red Meat, and we started talking about beards. She brought to my attention the World Beard and Moustache Championships, which were held today in Carson City, NV. I’ve always been content to keep my beard and ‘stache trimmed pretty short, but this just might inspire me to rethink that.
