++I've been having tons of fun this holiday weekend, pretty much devolving into complete decadence (which for me involves reading and consuming a lot of Richard Dawkins <3; so grain o salt, etc.)
So I tried to find a new song to obsess over and turned to the FIFA soundtrack that features Raury, figuring who ever is curating out there has some good taste. Went thru the songs one by one and these are the only two that floated my boat. The only ones I felt had a pulse. The top one might appeal to fans of classic Muse. Good and slithery.
++Thanks for compleeeetely ruining my love of and listening experience of what used to be one of my favorite songs, Everyday by Buddy Holly, commenters. #fartingcarrots.
++Been trying to decide whether I wanna go see Carol, cuz on one hand I love me some Todd Haynes, on the other hand while I consider myself a Blanchett fan, she doesn't seem to be breaking new ground here. (Running out of hands.) Todd Haynes tried to do a Karen Carpenter movie that became a real Jimi Jormp Jormp sitch because he couldn't get the music rights to the songs and he painted Richard as a bully. Wiki said sometimes Haynes' efforts resurface on You Tube and when I looked it up it was all that I imagined it to be and more.
++I started watching this vid thinking it was mostly standard issue with nothing notable happening, playing around with the idea of one of them pulling out a pig's head dripping with blood, when quelle surprise! Lily Aldridge flips the script and talks about rare Japanese eyedrops (5:37), in an unusual dispenser,that burn when you put'em in, sort of a little industry trade secret. Point, Alridge.
++Thought today after repeated listenings of Prince's Controversy: Should I try getting into a jam band? Just like Ann Coulter. Little late in the game for me to develop a new part of my personality.
++This is kinda random...I've been working on a project that requires some light straight edges and I've been using a paint mixing stick instead of a ruler. Being the tactile kind of person I am I don't mind a plastic ruler... not so fond yer harsh feeling heavy metal edges (though they can't be beat for precision jobs). Anyway, a paint stick doesn't have measurements on it but for a quick grab I've decided I like to keep a few of these on hand and at 11 cents apiece that's a cheap vice! Plus there's a little groove for those of us with tiny hands.
++Cadence wise, an updated version called "Black Uber" wouldn't have the same ring.#moderne
++I will never not say Bon Iver like Maya Rudolph.
++You know the Internet's really become part of your DNA when it's the middle of November and the only thing you're looking forward to in life is April 30, 2016, so you can say this. It's like a national holiday for doofs like May me.
++I was gonna do a long bs post about Billy Squier's drummer, and how Wrensbiter Eminem's song Berzerk is total basura and how stilted he sounds in a Beastie Boys format. Still, there's a bridge in there that's kind of sublime and saves the whole thing. So thumbs sideways, yelled the bathrobe basement blogger into the vast, vast abyss.
..lol, a few thoughts on this Big Short trailer.
++It kind of has a Scorsese meets Moneyball meets Queen of Versailles feel to it and you get the sense that the studios wanted to put "from award-winning director" Adam McKay in front of his name but instead they went with "outrageous mind." Like they r standing next to you in a wool three piece suit elbowing you in the rib like, "you know, Google his movies, he's successful. In a different way." (I am Eddie Murphy in this Trading Places scenario. #continuestoinformmyworldview.)
++Why does Christian Bale look like every SNL skit where someone is wearing braces pretending to be a teen?
++Listen Hollywood, I know someone who never wears shoes. They are not always geniuses. Just ask the parrot he carries around.
++Tis the season for movies about big corporate and institutional take downs.
++Does Brad Pitt get paid per word in trailers?
++I think American bro movies besides needing a big dollah payout/heist need a high five and a chest bump. The issue then comes down to order of high five and chestbump within the timeline of the movie, like timing the cymbals in an orchestra... or do we go chestbump first before the triple salchow?
++Still gonna see this, if only cause of general vibe and on point music selection. Trailer so impt these days.
