Watched Spring Breakdown on Netflix (watch instantly, dudes!) and it was totally fun for a dumb comedy, with actors who are of course much funnier than the script. You know Dratch, Poehler, and Parker Posey are in it, but there are lots of other ladies too, like Jane Lynch, and Millie from Freaks and Geeks, and Ann from Arrested Devel (who?), and you guys even a super brief Mary Cherry appearance. Good lord. Funniest set ever?
The best was Missi Pyle, who you have seen in a trillion things. According to Wikipeeds, she is one half of a “desert country-rock band” called Smith & Pyle, and she is married to a grizzly bear specialist. Wow.
OKay, stumbled upon some wonderfulness on my internet this morn. My own intimate internet. First, the blog This Is Fag City by James Franco’s future bf. And I’m reading that post about how he and Franco will be togeth, and I’m totally convinced btw, and then he mentions Brontez from the Younger Lovers, who I don’t know, but I DO know his other band Gravy Train!!! Okay, so. He says that Brontez “got into an online scandal” with Black Lips, so I follow all that shit up, and holy shit! Read this then read this. It’s all Brontez calling out the Black Lips lead singer (and his defenders) for his hipster racist bullshit, which Brontez first did in MRR and then continued to do online as he was disbelieved and belittled. LOVE HIM. How awesome is this:
You can hide behind your post-racist white liberal bullshit in the guise of “provocative humor” all you want but i got your card.This faggot ain’t havin it. In fact SHE’S OVER IT. I hate this whole “joking on the square” angle that saturates hipster circles where they say they’re joking but really theres some part underneath thats getting off on the fact that they’re saying fucked up shit to someone. sooooo slimy.
Oh. My. God. Okay. You know how fucking much I love La Femme Nikita? McG is gonna redo it. Totally excited. If it sucks, I still have my orig. But it might be awes! I dunno. Is there a chance it’ll be awes?
"She had a huge effect on me. She first came into my consciousness when I was working for Vogue. She was writing for Vogue too. She was working for New Society at the same time. She was a very keen observer of trends. She liked style and fashion. She loved glamour. She loved people like Louise Brooks.”
1. Bestselling author and Rock Bottom Remainders guitarist Stephen King has agreed “to play a doom-mongering radio host on musician Shooter Jennings’s new album,” the Guardian reported, noting that the “concept album, Black Ribbons, will see King provide the voice of late-night talk show host Will O’The Wisp as he gives his final broadcast before being cut off by government censorship. While his character rants about the apocalyptic future that lies ahead for America, he plays songs from Jennings’s band Hierophant.”
""I can’t say how important it was to me when Angela Carter said ‘I grew up on fairy stories—they’re much more important to me than realist narratives’. I hadn’t had the nerve to think that until she said it, and I owe her a great deal."
"[Iris Murdoch] simply used you as material. She loved you very much but she would take you out to lunch and just fire questions at you like a clay pigeon shoot."
and also why she thinks John Bayley’s bio of Murdoch is unforgivable, and who are the new writers she champions, and other awesome stuff. Love her.
I heard this NPR story today that I can’t find (I know, I just can’t) about Sonja Sohn and how she stopped acting in 2009 to lead this education/activism group, Rewired for Change, that uses watching and then discussing The Wire to reach at-risk teens who have fucked up! Oh my god, it was amazing. She told a nearly unbearable story about a girl sharing with the group her experience of surviving a gang rape (and the aftermath when it was filmed and shown around). Then this guy in the group started apologizing to that girl, saying he’d done that to someone once. Sohn said that as he was talking about all the reasons he was sorry, you could see these lights going on in his head about how terrible it was for that to happen to any human being. Way to make everyone sob through their hangovers, NPR! Awesome story. Buffy groups and Wire groups to save all teens?
Battle of the Bods is a Fox Reality Channel show … based on the short lived British show Hot Tub Ranking (which was presented by former Torchwood star Naoko Mori).
In Battle of the Bods, 5 contestants try to figure out what order the opposite sex likes them in. Usually the orders consists of a body part, and the whole body in full or, the whole package. Based on how many positions (ranks) the contestants get right determines how much money they get. Towards the end of the show, the people who order the contestants go out and be contestants, with a reverse approach.
1. No! I love Naoko Mori! What? But then HER page says she played the character of “Mia,” the host of the show. Wtf. More and more nonsense. I hate it.
2. The entire second paragraph. Such compelling gibberish. I can’t stop trying to figure out all the different things it could mean. It’s like some nine year old’s idea of a game show/masturb fantasy. It’s like the kid that made up ))<>(( came up with a game show idea, just add scat.
Okay, which reminds me of a story about my nose. Most people have heard this story already but maybe I missed some human beans. Um, at work on whatever day this past week, I could tell I was getting sick. And I started smelling a bad smell in my nose. I kept checking my clothes and stuff. It was a smell of rot. I didn’t like it. I started googling and found this forum where someone is saying "I have this bad odor coming from my nose…It smells like poop…I know people around me can smell it…What is causing it…I went to dentist, I brush my tongue …What is going on???" and then a million more people pipe up on the forum like yeah, I have the same prob. I became convinced that this was my sitch, and that the entire floor at work smelled like my nose, and everyone was dying from the horror of it, and I was begging Luke to come down to my floor and smell my nose and he was all “smel yor own nose lol” and I was trying to decide if I should make a doctor’s appt. immediately or just hide out in my apartment for life. Then at the end of the day I picked up the tupperware thing on my desk that I had to take home and realized the food inside seemed to be rotting, and that the smell probably had a lot to do with that. I have not smelled a smell in my nose anymore since I washed that Tupperware. The end.
P.S. Should I post to the forum that they should check their Tupperware? Maybe yes?
