Find Me On:
i’m thinking of finally watching Only God Forgives and The Road, even though i hear mixed things about both and they’re completely inappropriate for the holidays.
the spiciness of their “Sriracha sauce” is an abomination and insult to actual Sriracha. i had them give me a double dose on the chicken melt and i hardly cried at all.
aaaand nothing. yep, ok, master of internets i am not.
the EPA investigates three New York scientists’ exterminating business.
my favorite part was #standingovation, when it should have been more like #confusedaboutchildlaborlaws
man, i can never watch that prequel. it’s so much better/scarier not knowing what happened!
my favorite things (that aren’t monster things, but just like things in the movie that are great):
1.) kurt russel not wanting to fly to the Norwegian camp the first time because the weather’s a little iffy. but then when they see the Norwegian excavation site on the video tape, the weather is even worse out but he’s just like ‘fuck it, i’m going up.’
2.) wilfred brimley’s delivery of “i’ll keeeeel youuu”.
3.) the stoner guy’s delivery of “you gotta be fuckin kiddin.”
4.) how comical it is when the Norwegian guy drops the grenade the first time you watch it. but then buy the end you realize the amount of ungodly shit that dude went through to get to that point and that grenade slipping out of his hand is the most tragic thing in the movie (beside the poor dogs!)
5.) everything else.
I am so thrilled and terrified that The Thing made it you guys! Kurt Russel with a beard! Wilford Brimley without a mustache! The best performance by a dog ever! I hope Kelly likes it. What if Kelly doesn’t like it?! Suddenly Halloween became so much more stressful.
And cabin in the woods is indeed great. I wish Fran Kranz were in more things. His name is just so fun to say.
saw Gravity last night. i swore i’d never see another 3D film after the hobbit, but gave it one more chance after Clooney and Cuaron’s insistence. boy am i glad i did! it’s the first and only time i’ve seen 3D be not only effective, but essential in telling a story.
i humbly suggest John Carpenter’s The Thing cuz it’s hands down the greatest
learned this lesson TWICE when I was a kid. once just like this video, and once with a baby bird and a roadrunner (raptors be raptin’). for all its docile exterior, the country is a messed up place.
it’s actually his best friend’s jet-ski.
ok can someone please tell me WHAT is that game the puppy is playing with the orange? my dog will do that with his toys/bones too. like he’s fencing with them, but also kinda afraid of them? how would I even google such a question?
okaaaay, crazy. due to the video quality, i’m a full two minutes into the video when he says her name and i have my mind BLOWN that i use to work with her at the natural history museum in LA. i proposed to my now wife on the roof of said museum. the future is a weird and scary place you guys.
can someone that likes wes anderson movies, but doesn’t like Life Aquatic please explain to me why? I love it probably maybe more than his other ones, and will defend it to the death. But every time someone says they hate it and I inquire why, they retort that they don’t know. they just do. perplexing.
thank you, you guys. it’s so good when we’re reminded that we can surrounded ourselves with wonderful people both physically and virtually. is this what an internet hug feels like? cuz it feels awesome.
i’m usually a lurker here; rarely do I post. but i’ve been here everyday for the past two years and you monsters feel like a family to me. so i don’t know really where else to say this, or even how to say it. i apologize if my thoughts are jumbled.
i’m a Tucsonan. everything is very sad and very weird here right now. our world completely changed on saturday. things like this shouldn’t happen. it’s hard for me to deal with or understand the magnitude of it, being so close to the center. many of my friends were friends of people that were shot and killed. it’s such a small town. we’ve all met and love gabby. she’s just the best and I so badly want her to be ok. all of it is just so personal, and i really don’t know how to handle it. and then, of course, here come Fred Phelps to rub salt in all our wounds.
I wanted to let you know the good news to counter all of this. we’ve already organized a human barricade to support the families of those who were killed, with 3,500 and counting that will be at the funerals to insure Fred Phelps and the rest of these horrible, horrible people will not be seen or heard.
on saturday, a swelling of sane and rational and loving voices began here, and it gives me hope for this state that has be the source of so much bad news lately. and it gives me hope that the awful, hate-filled political rhetoric we’ve seen growing across the country over the past few years will finally start to subside. i hope this event can change things for the better.
i love you guys and thanks for letting me get all seriousgum. now please, let’s get back to the puppy gifs.
