Welcome to Scott Pilgrim Week

Oh yeah, it's also set in Toronto.

Yes, it’s a tad late for a welcome, but I didn’t want to step on Riddles’ toes when he made such a timely effort to put up his Hey! Look! Listen!, even if he did upstage me with his Batman story.

In any case, speaking of the mono-infested bugger, the Montok has somehow never heard of any incarnation of Scott Pilgrim. I understand that he’s in Tennessee, but what with the popular comic book series, the major release heavily-promoted film coming out Friday, and the generally well-received game released to PSN yesterday, I find it difficult to cut him any sort of slack.

Speaking of the game, I downloaded it yesterday in honour of the week, and I have mixed feelings so far, but I’ll talk about that in Scatter Storming tonight. Let’s just say I’m far more excited about the movie than finishing the game at this point.

And if you’re lucky you guys will see another Spam Comment Roundup this week too. It can’t be a weekly segment because it’s obviously dependant on how funny the robots are being, but I think I have enough material at this point.

Time to go back to work.

    I too have no idea who Scott Pilgrim is.

    You’re an idiot.
    I didn’t even mention the Facebook meme that everybody has been changing their profile pics for. Including people I’m certain you’re friends with.

    Where’s Scott Pilgrim?

    In all honesty, though, I’m not really surprised people haven’t heard of it. I heard of the comic book series a while back and read the first book, but I’d hardly say it was something “mainstream.” As far as movie promotions go, I’m not sure if this is the case with Riddles or not, but I can’t tell you the last time I actually watched commercials, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are several heavily-promoted movies coming out that I haven’t heard of. Anyway, just my $0.02. I’m not sure if I’ll see the movie or not, it might be a “wait for DVD” thing for me.
