Mom! We are on high alert here.
I almost killed you right then! You do not even realize!


Chapter 27

This is the movie that Jared Leto got fat for. It’s about Mark David Chapman, the guy who shot John Lennon. It was an all right movie. Nothing too special, but it was interesting to see what was going on in this guys head, and everything he did (or didn’t do) up until the murder. Pretty creepy, but pretty slow. I thought Leto did an excellent job.

Out of Sight

This is a movie from ’98, with George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. It’s a comedy/romance/crime/everything else kind of movie. That may make it sound awesome. It’s not awesome…It’s not bad, but it’s not awesome. It was just your typical “that was a good movie” movie.

Special

Special is about a guy who thinks he is meant for more than what he’s been doing in his life. He starts taking an experimental drug which, he believes, gives him super-human powers. He starts trying to fight crime with his new powers. It’s pretty amusing at times. It’s pretty emotional and heartfelt as well. This is an independent film, and I’m not sure if/when it’ll be available on DVD. It’s not the best movie I’ve seen in a while, but it’s worth a viewing if you get a chance.

A Prairie Home Companion

Maybe you have to listen to the show to really get this movie. I didn’t get it. It was interesting at times, but for the most part it was just boring.

I recommend coming out to the Oasis tomorrow night around 9 ‘o clock.
My friend Hank’s band will be playing.
They are called the Nathan Peek Band.
We played with them a few weeks ago, and they rock.
They are playing with a guy named Wess Floyd.
He sounds cool.
Wess starts around 9, and NPB will start around 10.
See you there?

I love Spinal Tap.

It was announced today that the group will be reuniting to play Live Earth.
This is excellent news.
Except for the fact that the show will be in London.
Not that I expected it to be in Birmingham.
I’m just saying.
Hopefully it will be broadcast in some form or fashion.
I’m sure it will.
They will also be releasing a new single, “Warmer Than Hell.”
Good times.

This here is my favorite sketch from last Saturday night…
And it’s only fitting to post it on the internet.

This was the other funny sketch (for Kelsey):

boo for yesterday’s mmqm. did no one know it? or did no one care?

1. Care for some gopher?
2. No thank you, _____. One third of a gopher would only arouse my appetite without bedding it down.
1. Oh, you can have the whole thing. Me and ____ already had one apiece. We ran across a whole… gopher village.

p.s. i got a new screen name. it’s hell0l0vely2.
the o’s are actually zeros…i was sad that hellolovely was already taken.
if you don’t know what hello lovely is, it’s a song casey wrote for/about me.
and it’s the number 2 song on his CD which is also called hello lovely.

sixteen quick reviews of movies
i haven’t had time to talk about on the blog:

Blades of Glory: wasn’t impressed. jon heder isn’t funny. will ferrell is hilarious. i think the writing in this movie was just really lacking. i’ll give it a seconds try, because i felt the same way about talladega nights at first viewing.

Smokin’ Aces: violence in vegas. awesome.
10 out of 10

Stranger Than Fiction: really, really good. a much better pick for ferrell than blades.
9 out of 10

The Good Shepherd: too long, but really good.
8 out of 10

The Holiday: better than i thought it would be.
7 out of 10

The Science of Sleep: not as good as i thought it would be.
7 out of 10

The Decent: i don’t like “horror” movies. i think they are dumb. this one was better than dumb.
7 out of 10

The Fountain: i liked the idea, but it was just too weird for me. i think if they would’ve left out the futuristic stuff, and just gone with the present-day story and the story she wrote, i would’ve liked it way more.
5 out of 10

Unknown: don’t waste your time.
2 out of 10

For Your Consideration: from the genius mind of christopher guest…i was very disappointed. please, please go back to mockumentaries
5 out of 10

Hollywoodland: i thought this was a very, very good movie. watch it.
10 out of 10

SherryBaby: very disturbing, but a very interesting movie.
8 out of 10

Running With Scissors: crap city.
4 out of 10

Lets Go To Prison: it was ok. just one of those “that was kind of funny” comedies.
6 out of 10

Night at the Museum: more of a children’s movie than i expected. as in, wow, that was dumb…maybe kids would like it?
5 out of 10

Idiocracy: i’ve heard this is one that you get into after multiple viewings. i hope that’s true. i just didn’t really think it was all that funny, and i love mike judge. i shall give it another go.

The Henry Rollins Show

Well, not the actual show.
Although it may be very good, I’ve never seen it.
I did, however, happen across the website for the show,
and there are some amazing musical performances.

Go HERE to listen to an awesome 8-minute jam by Ryan Adams and the Cardinals.
Over on the right side, click “music” and look through the other performances.
I especially liked Death Cab, Ben Folds (explicit, but oh so good) and Ben Harper.
