#1518: A movie I won't bother to watch.

Cowboy Bebop starring Keanu Reeves.

That one fits in the "oh, fuck no" category.

Cowboy Bebop is not among my favorite series. I enjoyed it, agreed with others who said it had a crappy ending, and left it at that.

Despite that, there is no way in fricking hell I am going to subject myself to a Hollywood-ized version of it. Particularly not one starring Keanu Reeves. Hollywood specializes in ruining stories.

For instance, Jackson's adaptation of The Lord of the Rings was as faithful as it could be and it still screwed things up. (Like? For one thing, the addition of the homoerotic subtext to Frodo and Sam's dialogue throughout all three movies.) Tolkien fans nearly crashed the internet complaining about everything that was wrong with the movies, and that was a good translation. Need I even mention Starship Troopers?

So anything that Hollywood is likely to do with Cowboy Bebop is going to suck egregiously, and no to ways about that.

Apparently if there is excess capacitance in the D0 line of your 16550A UART, this is the kind of thing which can happen.

(Yes I know what that means, damn it.)
