    Before I go see Pacific Rim, I decided to take a look at Pan's Labyrinth. Such a brilliant film. I don't expect the two films to have anything in common tonally, of course.

    Well.... yeah actually they really do not, though visuals are awesome in both.

    Because nothing, and I mean nothing, could be more appropriate for such an occasion than a waving American flag.

    Better, though the laughing makes it look like a mocking gesture.

    ... actually, it should be a mocking gesture [face_devil]

    I have to say that I find Jello's hype much more entertaining than the actual baby-waiting.

    And after reading through Tolkien's Unfinished Tales (once again) I have read enough of royal lines to last a few months.
    (Oh Aragorn and your "Hi, I'm the heir to this kingdom, I'm descendated from the last king Arvedui through 38 generations and... No, the entire Eriador does not have the same claim! We dunedain are pretty inbred you know!")

    Not actually a Paradox game, it seems. They're publishing, but not developing.

    Yep. Quite disappointed that it's not a girl, but oh well -- still a happy occasion.

    Ben, as a Brit, your ambivalence is positively traitorous. Jello has it down perfectly. You should be ashamed!

    So what do we wait for now? The names come soon (I guess they have already decided them and the Duke is not listing every boy name he remembers to the Duchess) and then what? The first words, clues if it will grow up Joffrey or fire-resistant or something and then rumors of a sequel start to build up? This is my first royal baby so I don't know the etiquette (but Jello has been a good teacher)
