Vehement disagreement from this festive party! What about this long list of songs THAT I LOVE, that must, therefore, prove that Christmas music is fantastic….
Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses, Christmas in Harlem by Kanye West, This Christmas by Donny Hathaway, Little Saint Nick by The Beach Boys, Christmas is Coming Soon by Blitzen Trapper, any track from The Charlie Brown Christmas Album, Got Something For You by Best Coast & Wavves, Are You Coming Over For Christmas by Belle and Sebastian, Everythings Gonna Be Cool This Christmas by The Eeels, Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto by James Brown, the Home Alone Theme by John Williams, Xmas Blues by LCD Soundsystem, Purple Snowflakes by Marvin Gaye, Christmas All Over Again by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, White Christmas by Otis Redding and a whole host of tracks from the multitude of Sufjan Stevens Holiday records….
NOW, go listen to all of those tracks in order, in silence, and DON’T COME BACK UNTIL YOU LOVE THEM!
Stolen from a Youtube comment that actually made me laugh far too loudly in my own room, urging my housemate to ask what was going on, prompting me to make excuses and tell him to go away whilst slamming my door shut:
“She should get the POO-litzer prize!!!!”
I slammed the door on my own sense of worth….
Terminate. Rocky. Hard.
A porn moguls brainwave upon seeing this…..
HEY! Did you know Stereogum stole this best and worst whatnot today!!!
Well, surely siblings don’t steal, they SHARE. Right?!
What I’m trying to say is LET’S GO DISCUSS BON IVER, RICK JAMES, NIRVANA & OTHER MUSICAL GOODNESS GUYS!!!
Synechdoche definitely has it’s flaws. That is without question. But there are these moments in it that seem to strike something wonderful within me every now and again. For example, the below ‘funeral’ scene gets me everytime…
Me during this video – ‘Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!”
(No joke, I peed myself)
I think she stole this from my blog (aka a corner of my room) where I scribble movie quotes all over the pages of novels.
Moby Dick – “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”
Robinson Crusoe – “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me… Aren’t you?”
Lord of the Flies- “GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!!!!!”
Everytime I visit this place, I just realise that all of you guys are wayyyyyyyy funner than my real friends, my family and the people on the TV put together; basically, GREAT JOB GUYS!
(PS; I don’t have any real friends, only goblins…)
As one of those British types that live over that big pond in Britain-land, I saw Attack of the Block a few weeks ago and quite enjoyed the whole thing.
HOWEVER, it’s not quite the OUTRAGEOUS COMEDY that it seems; definitely gets a little horror-ific as it goes on…
Also, you HAVE TO CHECK OUT the director Joe Cornish who is one half of Adam & Joe, two comedians who used to have a British cult TV show and now present the funniest show in the world (a proven scientific fact) on BBC6Music.
Everytime a superhero trailer/featurette/something or other pops up on TV or before a movie, I feel the urge to lean over to my girlfriend and explain something or other about the character.
‘Well, you see, the Green Lantern rings are powered by willpower and, in actual fact, there are numerous other emotional spectrum energies such as Blue Lanterns, hope, and yellow, fear. They only really came into general specifics in the recent Blackest Night storyline and blah blah blah blah blah’
Man, I have no idea why she is with me (HAHA JOKING, I DON’T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND, I’M A COMIC BOOK NERD!)
Can it be a gluten free cake?!?!
(Today at work, it was the bosses birthday and a girl baked a cake and made it especially gluten free for me, I think because I am new and they are trying to include me, and it tasted horrible and now I am sure everyone hates me. Work sucks guys.)
Also, I think he actually got confused watching an episode of that ‘documentary’ Glee….
Sly Stallone just seems to love punching EVERYBODY
So, it’s the KKK versus the WBC?
It sounds suspiciously like a news team fight…..
‘No touching of the hair or face……’
I have the weirdest boner…
(Sidenote: It’s not that weird, I sort of understand why (though I blame evolutionary sexual connections))
I got a 20 second advert and then NOTHING; Thanks for NOTHING Capitalism!
UNLESS; the advert was the episode?
In which case, really clever and subversive guys! I laughed after I cried!
When I saw this on Twitter, it happened to come after I had a brooding moment walking home and seeing a dad walking his young son along on his feet across a park in beautiful sunshine whilst I listened to a soul song about how much some soul singer loved his kids.
MY HEART BLOODY MELTED……
Off to tell this girl I have been seeing for three weeks she must have my children….
WHY WON’T IT PLAY?!?!?!
I am off to speak to our new future King & Queen to get this disgusting mistake sorted….
Ah me old mucker, you’re trying to pull me leg aren’t you! I know you mean the Idaho Pub right down from the chippy, round the corner from the crumpet shop? You know, just down the apples and pears behind the lorry??
Nuthin but a Nu Thang
Nu Thang Clan Ain’t Nuthin ta Fuck Wit
I live about 20 minutes away from all this and my place of work is right between Trafalgar Square and St James Park (the greenspace near Buckingham Palace). A bunch of my friends went there to basically hang out and soak it all up all morning and I was meant to be joining them.
Instead, I stayed up until 5 playing Fallout Vegas, woke up just in time to catch the ceremony on TV, tweet about it and then have continued to play Fallout Vegas in my underwear, eating Creme Eggs, drinking tea and enjoying my day off.
THANKS FUTURE KING AND QUEEN DUDES!
I work by Trafalgar Square; it’s UTTERLY terrifying at the moment. I try not to be racist (don’t we all!) but nothing has made me hate everyone else on Earth (and everyone outside of London, for that matter) more than this event. GO AWAY TOURISTS, I’M TRYING TO WORK!
I might have to script up an XXX version of ‘Chicks With Tricks’. Now, if only I could think of a clever title….
I would have upvoted but then Ghostbusters 2 popped up on the end; THEY MOVED THE STATUE OF LIBERTY USING JACKIE WILSON! What more do you want from a movie?
