The Collection: Hulk Smash GTA IV, Shakespeare Does Star Wars

Collection200x200Working during a holiday week is always weird. Either you’re on half-speed or there are a zillion things that HAVETOGETDONERIGHTNOW before you go off to whatever it is you plan to do for your day(s) off. This week, of course, contains three major holidays: Monday was Canada Day for our friends in that fine nation, Thursday is Independence Day right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A, and Friday’s my birthday, celebrated worldwide. Okay, two major holidays. Anyway, there’s news and stuff, but everyone, at least here, is in vacation-brain mode, so let’s just dip into The Collection for a couple of little items that won’t tax us too much while visions of fireworks, barbecues, and sleeping in dance in our heads….
