I Love You, Man

I love Paul Rudd. And I love Jason Segel. So it would’ve been hard for this movie to let me down. It didn’t. It was pretty much exactly what I expected. Really funny. I think my favorite part of Forgetting Sarah Marshall is when these two are on screen together, so giving them a whole movie to be on screen together was genius. I don’t think I like it as much as Sarah Marshall, but it’s up there. It definitely had some cheesy moments, and the wedding scene went way too long, but for the most part it was just a good, funny movie.

Nick told me about this site a week or so ago.

I really like it.

So I made one.

caseypatton.bandcamp.com

From now on this will be the site I use for anything music related.

Right now I’ve just got the album I recorded in 2005 on there.

It’s all for free download, if anyone is interested.

In the future I’d like to start putting old recordings from old bands and stuff, and hopefully some new stuff I record at home, or with new friends.

If nothing else, it’s something fun to mess around with.

Just thought I’d share.

Speaking of upcoming movies that will be awesome…

Sherlock Holmes will be awesome.

Robert Downey Jr. has quickly become on of my favorite actors.

And Jude Law isn’t too shabby, I suppose.

And it’s directed by Guy Ritchie?

This is going to be a really fun movie.

Oh yeah… and Rachel McAdams!

I’m pumped about this movie:

Even the trailer is action-packed!

It’s based on an animated short, made by the same guy.

And the short is awesome.

The only thing I’m curious about is that in the original, there is no speaking, but they obviously all have voices in the movie.

This probably makes it more watchable as a full-length film, but the use of sound effects in the original short was really well done and made it very unique.

Here’s the original, if you care to see it.

It’s about 10 minutes long:

I think you all need to see this…

Consider this your intervention.

“This guy, Flash Thompson, he probably deserved what happened. But just because you can beat him up doesn’t give you the right to.”

*Flash Thompson – that always makes me laugh.


Adventureland

All-in-all this was kind of a mediocre movie. It wasn’t near as funny as I was hoping it would be, but it was a pretty good story. I especially expected Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig to be hilarious, but they were just kind of annoying. Kristen, whom I love, just wasn’t given any good lines at all. Also, the end was a bit too cheesy for my taste, and it was a little slow at times. It sounds like I didn’t like it, but I did. It just wasn’t great. Definitely worth a dollar, though.

The Khrusty Brothers is a concept band started by Waterdeep‘s Don Chaffer.
I don’t even know where to start. I’ll quote some other source:

“It’s a concept band based around a story, a story which Don hopes to turn into an off-Broadway musical one day.  According to The Pitch:

The indie-rock concept piece tells the fictional tale of an Appalachian family band carrying forth the legacy of its deceased, opium-addicted father (who kills himself at the end of Act I).

‘In his will, he wants his casket driven around on tour and incorporated into the show,’ explains Don Chaffer, the story’s author. ‘The only one who wants to do it is Khorky Custer Khrusty, who stashes his body in the van before they hit the road.'”

Yeah, confusing. But whatever… the album is awesome!
And you can get it for free off of NoiseTrade.

Check some songs out first, if you don’t believe me.
It’s weird, but it’s genius.

Here’s a clever/well-done little song by some British girls:

Sorry for another video today. Busy day at work.

Even thought I’m in the business of making well-made television commercials, I really like seeing crappily made ones. But only if they’re funny. I’m sure you all remember the Montgomery Flea Market commercial. And a few weeks ago I showed you Crazy Bruce’s Liquors. Well, here are two more gems you don’t want to live without seeing.

This first one is actually made by two web-video veterins. You’ll know them from the amazing Cornhole Song video. But the only thing somewhat professional is the jingle and the couple times they appear on camera. Awesome.

And this is just awesome.

Obviously, that second one isn’t real… but it sure is funny.

I’m sure most of you have already seen these, because I IMed them to everyone online when I found them… but I couldn’t risk even one person missing out.
