What can your top do?



Now that you ask, he could do a lot more than pour me a shot - if I had one.

Another Comment becomes a Post


I was commenting on Caliban's Revenge about his review of the movie Pandorum this week, Prospero liked it very much. I found it very frustrating and wound up ranting more than commenting. I thought is would make a good post and here it is.

I almost left several times but thought about my $8.50 and stayed. I should have cut my losses and run.

First, I had a very hard time understanding the dialog. I could hear it but most of it was either mumbled or drowned out by background sounds. Ultimately I think I only understood about 50% of the movie, I had thought about getting one of those listening aids but I also thought about all the ears they have been in. Yuck!

  • Rooms sealed off by massive doors and no power to open them but an air vent can get you any where.
  • This guy just wakes up and has memory loss but he can out run and hide from creatures who have lived in the ship for years?
  • Just how many people are they going to find walking around?
  • 60,000 people, 200 years into the future and this guy doesn't speak English?
  • The creatures couldn't hear them whispering? Really??
  • I guess the creatures had no sense of smell, bad hearing and didn't see any better in the dark then the humans could but man they are sound sleepers.
  • Dude, you only have a few hours to keep the reactor from blowing up, creatures are trying to eat you and you want to "save" your wife and wake her up? She's way safer than you! Now don't get killed and fix the fucking reactor.
  • Damn! Cam is hot all covered in slime but his teeth are way too white and perfect.
  • Damn! Cam cleans up nicely, those biceps! His teeth can be his one flaw.
  • Trash compartments (like in Star Wars) or whatever filled with water and floating human skeletal parts. When did bones learn to float? Where did the trash and bodies come from? I thought everyone was asleep.
  • If emergency escape pods are airtight for space, wouldn't they also keep out water?
  • If you're breathing with a mask on, shouldn't that work under water as well? And if not, shouldn't you at least be in better shape then the guy who doesn't have one? And aren't you the one who has been surviving for so long but this guy just woke up? I guess women are still the weaker sex 200 years into the future.
  • Shouldn't there have been much more computer automation? Like to Wake them up? Play an informative message?

The ending, which I kinda figured out, did tie things up well but the trip wasn't worth it.

Lazer razor - so want one. Dennis was Dennis - he should have used the razor. Ben was very good and shouldn't have used the razor. Cam - MORE PLEASE!!

Do yourself a favor and wait for cable, maybe even regular tv. Don't even put it in your NetFlix queue.

Does this make me look Gay??



I saw this over at Studio YVR and had to steal it. I can't believe I hadn't seen it - especially here or here.

This is the correct context for, "that's so gay!," suggesting they look homosexual, not stupid.

We also have Cougar Town

Cougar Town is on ABC at 9:30 pm est.

Everyone knows that this is the new Courtney Cox show but what they may not know is that it si pretty funny and has lots of naked menz. Well shirtless at least.

Jules, Cox, is a newly divorced mom with boundary issues - she doesn't have any. She shares everything with her high school aged son much to his shagrin, flashes a school mate (say what you want but she has a GREAT body) and gets caught by him giving head to her hunky, hairy chested one night stand.

Her neighbor, Grayson, is also recently divorced and is sleeping with any girl under 25. This actor is soooo my type. Also floating around is Jules ex, Bobby, a semi-pro ex golfer who get a new job as the landscaper at his sons' high school. We see him cutting the grass shirtless.

The rest of the cast is very enjoyable and includes two Drew Cary Show alumni - Christa Miller and Ian Gomez. As with Modern Family and too many new shows, the pilot and cast was good enough to bring me back for more.




GET TO KNOW

Cougar Town follows the life of recent divorcée Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox). Jules runs a successful business, has the best friends, and a great son. But when it comes to relationships, she has a lot to learn. However, the more Jules puts herself back out there, the more she discovers that the only way to find yourself, is to let yourself go. After all, you only get one chance to experience your 20s. Even if it’s when you’re 40 something.

Opposite Glee we have....Modern Family

Modern Family in on ABC - Modern Family at 9pm est.

Modern Family was fairly funny and features a likable cast including Married with Children's Ed O'Neill and a gay couple who have just adopted a Vietnamese.

Mitchell, red headed Jesse Tyler Ferguson you know from everywhere (including Ellen), is too insecure for my taste and his partner, although hilarious, is too dramatic. When in introduces the family to their new daughter, he has music, lighting and curtains. They make for a funny couple but not a very good example for Gay Marriage - why couldn't be more like the way I imagine Neil and David to be? I'll have to see how this show develops but is was entertaining enough to watch again.



The Synopsis
Jay recently married Gloria. Now Jay is trying hard to keep up with his much younger and hotter Colombian wife, along with her passionate pre-teen son, Manny. Claire is having a hard time raising her own family. Her husband Phil is great, except that he thinks he's "down" with their three kids, much to all their embarrassment. And, Mitchell and his enthusiastic partner Cameron have just made a major life change by adopting a Vietnamese baby named Lily.

I told John not to say anything...

10,000 VISITORS!!!

Some time last night, I had my 10,000th hit!

Thank you. I've gotten to know some wonderful people - Prospero, CB, Michael, Chris and many others.

Not bad for someone who just created a blog to keep track of all the blogs he reads in one location, accessible from anywhere and with last update status.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE BY MAURICE SENDAK



The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind
and another
his mother called him "WILD THING"
and Max said 'I'LL EAT YOU UP!'
so he was sent to bed without eating anything.

That very night in Max's room a forest grew
and grew...
and grew until his ceiling hung with vines
and the walls became the world all around
and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max
and he sailed off through night and day
and in and out of weeks
and almost over a year
to where the wild things are.

And when he came to the place where the wild things are
they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth
and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws
till Max said "BE STILL"
and tamed them with the magic trick
of staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once
and they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all
and made him king of all wild things.

"And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!"



"Now stop!" Max said and sent the wild things off to bed
without their supper. And Max the king of all wild things was lonely
and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.

Then all around from far away across the world
he smelled good things to eat
so he gave up being the king of where the wild things are.

But the wild things cried, "Oh please don't go -
we'll eat you up-we love you so!"
And Max said, "No!"

The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth
and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws
but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye
and sailed back over a year
and in and out of weeks
and through a day
and into the night of his very own room
where he found his supper waiting for him
and it was still hot.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE

In preparation for out trip to see the October 16th release of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, I ordered the book from Amazon so my nephew (and I too) could read it before seeing the movie. We're both very excited about seeing it - although he's more excited about seeing Zombieland of Friday (this kid loves all things dead). I didn't remember that this was/is mostly a picture book with little writing. After the trailer, I've rewritten the lines of the book so you don't have to buy the book or stand in Boarders (nod to David at Controlling the Transmissions) reading it- but they lack something without the illustrations.
