booger motel or mouth party
i can safely assume that we all tivo'ed the mtv europe awards and fast forward through all the boring parts, to get to borat immediately, right? to me, there is no better actor out there than sascha baron cohen. fuck your sean penns, cohen can stay in character for like months at a time. it's been said before, but has anybody actually seen cohen not in borat mode at all this year?
i guess i'm either in the process of losing or already lost my nerd status cuz the only kinda of chills i'm getting from peter jackson's king kong are of the douche variety. while yes, i'll probably watch it and what not, but i just can't imagine how it could be a three hour film, but peter jackson pulled his 'i made this film that made alot of money' card and he got away with what he did.
this is bullshit. remaking a peckinpah film, especially the wild bunch is like remaking "enter the 36 chambers" with nick cannon and like mario singing all the hooks. the wild bunch, for my money, is the single greatest american western ever made and its the beat all, end all american western. it doesn't need to be contemporize or modernize because the film was about the death of an era and it doesn't need to modernize or contempirze. basically, you're just making a men on a mission film and you thought the title was really cool, that's all. i mean, you can come up with a more unique title. i mean, isn't this why we have marketing majors and what not?
well, i guess this makes my teen sex comedy, cock knockers a rather mute point
in case anybody was wondering, the pumpkin spice latte, frapunchino thing from starbucks wasn't the pumpkin pie shake i wished it was going to be. does coffee bean have any pumpkin drinks? i haven't been in a couple of weeks.
umm, i haven't watched last night's new episode of "the oc" yet, but i can just assume from watching it in super fast forward, that the bizzaros are really fucking stupid and annoyning and a big waste of time and it's a whole ross & rachel vibe with ryan & mischa b and it still sucks and it's not funny as it used to be and adam brody wore a penniguin shirt or related product somewhere in the show. i mean, i think we're at the point with this show where we could go the route of conan o'brien's "24" paradoy, "60," where we just see a second of the show each week and just assume that it wasn't as good as the first season, but still a smidge better than season two, but still, its just as bad as sitting next to jay leno on a fight to japan and the battery on your ipod has died and on the other side is like tom cruise and he's offering to help you charge your ipod off his laptop but you have to really consider and look at this literature he's brought with and like the in flight movie is like sideways but all of the best parts are cut out and like the guy in front of you is watching the "bewitched" remake on his laptop and is laughing really hard at it. like to me, thats what i assume each new episode of "the oc" is going to be like, i've lost all hope with it, not even a guest spot by samurai armstrong could get me interested, although, i'll still tune in next week, so i'll have some material cause, you know, slow news day or what not.
sometimes, i forget when i'm talkng to normal people i don't have the ability to create a link to something for them to understand it. i can't say robert mapplethorpe and just assume that everybody has either taken a art class or has a bit of knowledge on the struggles of artstic expression and government censorship or has the ablitity to click on a link and sorta grasp the concept of the reference. cause i made a joke in a class about robert mapplethorpe and it just bombed and to spin it and to make myself feel better, i think i said something, you have to be smart or at least a knowledge of art to get that one. and i also made a reference to scataological humor and that just went over peoples heads as well. with a few words, i managed to further alienate myself from an entire class. that's not luck, but that is skill. yet at the same time, aren't we all college kids and haven't we all taken either psych 101 or studies of human sexuality, so you think they'd be on the level to get or understand references such as that.
that neil diamond rick rubin album is really good, actually. the extent of my knowledge of neil diamond going into the record is the big belt buckle, sparklely shirts and massive chest hair guy singing about people coming to america and the impression that will ferrell did of him on snl. that and "sweet caroline," but other than that, i have no nothing of his prior musical skills. before i listened to the album, i read the liner notes and it just reminded me of the will ferrell impression because the notes are just filled with really hokey cliches and come off rather cheesey. sure, rick rubin produced jay's "99 problems," and the album, "reign in blood," by slayer but there's only so much magic that bearded little man can do (he's actually not short, but average height. i saw him at the apple store at the grove once). yet, i'm listening to the album and the second song, i'm hooked and i'm claiming, "hell yeah" as my new theme song. maybe, its the emotional state i'm in and i can sorta relate to songs with a large themes of being lost and figuring out how to go on with your life, but the album really struck a strong chord with me and i dig it, alot. give it a try.
