Maybe Punks Not Dead Yet…

22 October, 2010



Keith Morris’, of the Circle Jerks, “I Don’t Belong”. This video conjures up the question of why there isn’t more politically charged punk making its way into the mainstream right now? Hell, politically charged music in general, for that matter. You’d think there’d be more kids running around with spiked hair, bad DIY dye jobs, wallet chains and a “fuck-all” attitude raising hell in the suburbs of Cincinnati or Omaha like in the 90’s. Unfortunately, though, the truth is, there isn’t. The baby boomers are resembling an attitude closer to this than the younger generations with their tea party bull shit. And, you know what? That makes me sad.

What’s up with that youth of today? (Also a great band).

What the Hell is this?

I don’t know whether to get aroused or run away?

Man Woman Wild…

20 September, 2010




I used to watch this show called World’s Most Extreme Homes. The host was cool, she was cute and British and made the show more interesting.

I’ve often wondered whatever happened to her, as she was a good host I assumed she was doing something in Britain and I wasn’t able to see it/hear about it.

Well, the host was none other than Ruth England and I’ve just learned that she is part of the husband-wife team that hosts Man Woman Wild on Discovery Channel. This is cool, as she is a cool lady. I am now a bigger fan of this show than before. I was always more of the Man Vs. Wild kind of guy, but I can fit this into my schedule.

Based on this ad by Guy Ritchie and starring Jude Law and some hot chick, for Dior, I’m going with no. But it can be cool. However, this Dior ad is no where near as cool as this ad:

Walking Dead…

This is the new trailer for “The Walking Dead” from Frank Darabond, dude who directed Shawshank Redemption. Am I the only one getting a 28 Days Later vibe from the first half of the trailer? I’m not saying its a total rip off, its from a graphic novel, but 28 Days Later did this concept perfectly 8 years ago. Regardless, I will be watching the premier on AMC on Halloween. Scratch that, I’ll be watching it the next day with a hangover.

This Looks Great…

This looks like someone reached into a 16 year olds’ imagination and made a movie out of what they found.

Pretty Cool…

12 July, 2010


This is a fan made trailer for the upcoming Stallone, Statham, Schwarzeneggar, Li, Lundgren, Couture, Austin, Rourke, Willis, Crews vehicle the Expendables that’s coming out this August. Its pretty funny, very well cut, and a little too “man-nerdy” for me (I’m coining that term). I think it raises a good point about the state of American “cinema” currently. Also, anything starring Charisma Carpentar deserves an oscar IMHO, if she’s not wearing clothes it deserves the Nobel Prize (yes, even a violent movie like this would deserve one).

“Its a female Shawshank Redemption, directed by Michael Bay!”

This is classic. As a huge fan of the Vampire Lesbian movement of the sixties, I must say, this is awesome.

Funny…

As confused as I am about Lady Gaga, one minute I think she’s pop at its worst and the next I think she’s pop at its best, I can’t agree with her more on this quote from her interview with Larry King:

As Gaga told King: “I struggle with my feelings about the Church in particular….in terms of religion, I’m very religious. I was raised Catholic. I believe in Jesus. I believe in God. I’m very spiritual. I pray very much. But at the same time, there is no one religion that doesn’t hate or speak against or be prejudiced against another racial group or religious group, or sexual group. For that, I think religion is also bogus. So I suppose you could say I’m a quite religious woman that is very confused about religion. And I dream and envision a future where we have a more peaceful religion or a more peaceful world, a more peaceful state of mind for the younger generation. And that’s what I dream for.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

*On a side note, I still think she’s way hotter as a brunette…

Liam Gallagher at Cannes, talking about his new fookin’ movie, mahn. In all honesty, he seems completely self aware and intent on making an actually good movie.

His new band is doing the soundtrack, though?

Based on the book of the same name, a word-of-mouth smash by Sixties face Richard DiLello, it’s a film about the Beatles – but like none you’ve ever seen before.

DeLillo worked for Apple Corps, the Fab Four’s corporation that they described as “an attempt at ‘Western Communism’.”

The Longest Cocktail Party has been called ‘the only book about the Beatles that’ll make you laugh’. Peppered with the hilarious and poignant details that a writer only gets from really being there, it’s Let It Be meets The Thick of It.

The film is currently set to go into production in early 2011.

Seriouisly, Liam, we know you always have the best of intentions, and you genuinely do seem to be in it for the fun of it, maybe a little for the cash, too, when it comes to your side endeavors, but maybe film isn’t the way to go. Although, most Beatles movies seem to be either corporate documentaries or crap, except maybe this, so this might be a good thing.

Doctor Who Isn’t Sci Fi…

4 May, 2010




According to Terry Pratchett (I don’t know who he is, either), a a British novelist and writer,

People say Doctor Who is science fiction. At least people who don’t know what science fiction is, say that Doctor Who is science fiction. Star Trek approaches science fiction. The horribly titled Star Cops which ran all too briefly on the BBC in the 1980s was the genuine pure quill of science fiction, unbelievable in some aspects but nevertheless pretty much about the possible. Indeed, several of its episodes relied on the laws of physics for their effect (I’m particularly thinking of the episode “Conversations With The Dead”).

SSR: Inglorious Basterds.

I finally got to see Inglorious Basterds last night and my Split Second Review is this:


Kill Bill+Any Linear Movie Ever Made+Dr. Strangelove=Inglorious Basterds.

Wait, Wait, Wait… WTF?

There was a Kitchen Confidential TV show? And it starred Bradley Cooper? WTF?

Cool…

The Goofy Movie was never really my thing, but this is still pretty cool. I feel like a lot of the shots were way too tight, but thats just me…

Russell Brand has said his latest film role has been inspired by the likes of Liam and Noel Gallagher, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Morrissey.

The comic is currently filming for Get Him To The Greek, which sees him reprise his character Aldous Snow from 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

In the new film, Snow fronts a band called Infant Sorrow, and when he was asked whether any musicians had inspired the role, he replied: “Lots. Jagger, Keith Richards, Bowie, Morrissey, Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher. I’m friendly with some musicians so I’m able to watch them. They’re very different from comedians. They’re rude – at the least the ones I know. They’re so self-assured.”

To be honest I wasn’t that excited for this movie when I saw the trailer, but after considering how close Brand is with a lot of my heroes, maybe his performance will be pretty authentic.

So, No Distance Left To Run, a film about Blur, premiered last night and I have to say I’m genuinely perplexed as to why films can’t be released in other countries at the same time still. I mean, we live in the year 2010 and I still can’t get my hands on District B 13: Ultimatum or this movie?

I went to school for film, I understand the business end of it all, etc. but, come one!

Anyway, apparently Damon Albarn finally revealed why they released Country House at the same time as Roll With It.

Blur clear up one old mystery – saying it was Damon’s decision to release single Country House against Roll With It by Oasis.

The biggest chart battle of the decade became the defining moment of Brit pop – and Blur got the No1.

Damon says he did it to get back at Noel Gallagher. He recalled: “Noel used to take the p*** out of me constantly and it really, really hurt at the time. Oasis were like the bullies I had to put up with at school.”

Topless Robot has an awesome list of the top 10 least wussiest vampire movies. I agree with them, except for Martin in the number 2 spot. Its not that it was a wussy movie, its just that there are other more action-packed movies that could have been there. John Carpenter
s Vampires
or Underworld, maybe? Night Watch and Frostbitten also come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, Martin is a great film and deserves to be at the top of the every “Top Vampire Movie” list, its just not a very “un-wussy” movie…

Check out the List here…

James Wolcott, culture critic for Vanity Fair, has a really interesting article about the effects of reality TV on society. Its a little dramatic at times, but well-written and stimulating.

The thin-skinned, martyred pride, the petulant, self-centered psychodrama—she was playing the scene as if a camera crew were present, recording her wailing solo for the highlight reel. Proof, perhaps, that the ruinous effects of Reality TV have reached street level and invaded the behavioral bloodstream, goading attention junkies to act as if we’re all extras in their vanity production. There was a time when idealistic folksingers such as myself believed that Reality TV was a programming vogue that would peak and recede, leaving only its hardiest show-offs. Instead, it has metastasized like toxic mold, filling every nook and opening new crannies. Idiocracy, Mike Judge’s satire about a future society too dumb to wipe itself, now looks like a prescient documentary.

This. Is. Awesome.
