have you tried jiggling the wires?

what clean and attractive monsters. not that i’m surprised… i think it’s time for videogum to open a bar in NYC where the monsters could hang/visit when they’re in the city. because running a pop culture website is the logical first step to bar ownership/operations.

FINALLY. i was hoping there’d be at least ONE other monster from the KC area…

i live in Kansas (DON’T HATE MONSTERS!) and i’ve actually seen this. it seems kind of stupid, but when the fuse is lit and the “boom” hits there’s a weird satisfaction and sense of awe watching something you can barely lift yourself fly 100 feet in the air. admittedly, they did it surrounded by tons of fireworks…so it’s just a little something extra…but still.

i agree. there are moments that are so clever and funny. i think part of it is simply because you’ve got 20 years of character interaction and history to work from. there was a scene last season where Homer had to move out and it was a situation where Homer and Marge started dating again (sort of). they were at a kegger and he was trying to impress her and said in casual pick-up mode “You know…i was an astronaut for awhile. So many rules…”. it was just perfect and sweet and the kind of thing most people don’t bother to watch the show for anymore. i think in general the show is still one of the smartest thing on TV, even if it’s not manic like it was when it was a toddler.

i’ve watched every episode this season. i’ll give the tried and true response given when people say the Simpsons have gone on too long and should be stopped…”it’s not as great as it was, but it’s still better than most of what’s on TV.” at this point i want them to continue just to be the longest running prime time show on TV. admittedly, i’m an old man. not NCIS old, but old.

nice little shot at Carlos Mencia tossed in…

there’s a surprising amount of white meat on a rat. it’s more of a crock pot thing, though.

that joke belongs to the ages now. layers upon layers. but year…i was hoping for some riffing as well… (not that i have anything funny to say. i actually have to get five ZINGS done by 6 myself)

i just watched this and it is actually pretty funny. but i like Bill Lawrence and his sensibilities. plus the slut from Freaks and Geeks is in it which made me smile.

in being fair to the “Cougarness” of the fall line-up, i also just watched Accidentally on Purpose. holy shit that’s bad. and i’ll wager it’ll go for 5 seasons. :(

hm. i think i might have placed last week, but you didn’t to this last week. and then i thought that perhaps i’d place this week but then you tallied both weeks and that put me out of the running.

WHY DID I PUT THIS ON MY BUCKET LIST?

*whine* i’m over it. but seriously guys…this weird multiple identities things is getting old. i’m sure weirdo trolls and half-wits will wander in from time to time…no need for us to create them.

The Hand That Rocked the Cradle 2 the Grave

both of those trailers could us bookending comments from Beavis and Butthead. shit…i don’t like living with knowledge of this new paradigm.

congrads to Jenny. now i’m super bummed that she wasn’t there the night i went to Big Terrific…but that’s an incredibly selfish viewpoint at a time like this. :)

heh. i haven’t had cable tv for a couple of years so i’m basing my assertion on outdated info, i guess. :) i don’t remember seeing it much.

 +6Posted on Aug 27th, 2009 | re: What's Your Damage, Hollywood? (51 comments)

you should watch it. it really holds up for a lot of reasons. it’s the kind of movie that you WON’T see on TBS, TNT, or whatever because the subject matter is still(20 years later) too much for the “average” viewer. having said that… i’m with you on the remake shit.

if anyone ever deserved ice cream cake, it was Ted Kennedy. i hope his passing can rally the health care initiative…whatever form it ends up taking. RIP.
