I meant to rent “Videodrome.” You can’t always get what you want. SO sometimes you get something kinda like what you want. And it surpasses your expectations. My movie friend and I watched another Cronenberg film: “Dead Ringers” (1988). The basic story is about a pair of identical twins. Jeremy Irons plays both. I haven’t [...]

Whew. I have been eyeballs deep in work and sschool. Yup, it is no joke. Work is sporadic at best, but the river of schoolwork is never-ending. This was just scribbled down one night. I am sorry I don’t have time to write more. “Sometimes when I work security at a door, I make up [...]

Whoah. Sorry, I have been gone for a bit.  Hey look at that. I know, it’s a hella big picture. Whoever said Asian men are not attractive was wrong. Dead wrong. This poster proves it. A lady-friend of mine is real keen on Andy Lau, and this influenced my first decision in choosing the Filmzilla [...]

I’m sorry, my faithful readers. I have been lax  in the blog production. The days of summer and four blogs a week are gone for the moment. It’s a lame excuse, but it’s the only one I’ve got: I have been ears deep in scholastic endeavors.  So, instead of ignoring you all, I am going [...]

“Sometimes the thing that is the most difficult is the thing that you have to do.” The direct Swedish translation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”(2009) is: “Men Who Hate Women,” or “Man Som Hatar Kvinnor.” I’m told it makes more sense if you follow the whole trilogy. I don’t speak Swedish, and I [...]

This is an older blog & a quickie movie review. If you’re wondering what might be fun, cheap, and off the beaten path to watch this week. Do you like fucked-up documentaries? Well this one’s a winner… “Kiss my Snake”(2007) is about snake boxers from Ban Kok Sa-Nga in Isan, Thailand. There is a whole [...]

If it’s morally wrong to give drugs to children, why do doctors proscribe so much Adderall to kids? They haven’t done any long-term studies about the effects, but it is about the same as what happens to crack/meth/junkie babies. And it’s bad. Cuz young addicts grow up to be old addicts. And that is not [...]

“I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees, and misty memories of days gone by. We could never see tomorrow. No one said a word about the sorrow…” Sung by Al Green (1972) and written by Barry and Robin Gibb in 1970. Solara: “I hate it here.” Eli: “Then change it.” Strictly speaking, [...]

-short story by mc m80 [I'm looking for feedback on this one. Or collaboration.] “Abilities are like disabilities.  Sometimes you are born with them, sometimes you develop them, and sometimes they are dumped on you. Joey collects found name tags.  He started at age 8.  Walking to school, he found a Target cashier’s name tag with the [...]

Nicollet Village Video has closed & moved. They actually transformed into Filmzilla. They have every Godzilla, Mothra, Baby Godzilla, King Ghidora, Rodan & Harryhausen film known to man. I just threw that last one in there. If you don’t know who Ray Harryhausen is, you best take your ass to school. Jason and the Argonauts.(1963) [...]

“Show your patriotism by buying a bracelet” This was the actual copy of text from a Facebook advertisement. I saw it yesterday and today. Is it just me, or are advertisers getting more stupid?  Do they think the American audience is that dumb/medicated/not-paying-attention? Oh wait. Mickey Knox, (therefore, I have reason to believe this originated from [...]

Hey, The Blog has a new format, links, pics, tags, blogroll & stuff. (Thanks Matt L.!) Here is a quick but opinionated post: The ugliest/dumbest/so-trendy-they’re-played-out trends of the millennium: 1.)  Mustaches, like myspace, are so 2007.  (A little known, but frequent orgasm-inhibitor.) 2.) Plucking/shaving their eyebrows and replacing them with a drawn line that is s 1 to 3 [...]

I gave in, to the hype. Some of my most trusted technical advisers were saying good things about “Inception.” I felt like I missed an important day of class. I had to see it if I wanted to participate in the discussion. I had to see it, sober-ish.   Not like “Avatar.” Too wasted, too quickly in the theatre.  [...]

A long, long time ago, in a country far, far away… There was Bass.  (Pronounced base.) Bass begot the rhythm, and it was good. Fast-forward to disco/electro/hip-hop. No, fast-forward to: not so long ago, and pretty close to here. Q&A by some of my favorite performer/DJ/MC/now-famous-hometown-dudes.  It was unusual, to have a Q&A in the middle of [...]

So this person I know smashed out his girl’s windshield.  It was a nice night in June. A lot of people saw it. At least three or four.   Thank god the cop didn’t talk to the neighbors across the street.

Drink and dial. Crisper-stash beer. One solid beanbag set. What is this summer coming to?

I am sitting at my desk, nerding out. I was recently informed of a new rule of punctuation. Because of “kerning” (the automatic spacing of letters using their shape/size,)  I learned that the need for two spaces following a period is obsolete.  I found some good, fast articles about it: http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/typespacing/a /onetwospaces.htm http://www.mla.org/style_faq3 Kerning sounds [...]
