I'm back, I've seen a couple of movies, and I'm ready to get back to the level of production that I'm used to. Thanks for allowing me a week to catch my breath. I'm sure it'll happen again, but hopefully not for a while, anyway.

Movie Muse has a list of the top 10 movie-deaths-by-explosion. Love it.
