I’m spending this weekend in sunny gorgeous San Francisco. I’m hoping to catch up with an old pal from home, see some sights, generally be lazy. Check out the view and the weather!
One thing I love about this city is it’s geek vibe.
Also, the food. Witness: I ate like a pig at an Indian Buffet.
Tomorrow I’m going to walk a bunch of miles to drop that Indian food calorie load (but it was so worth it).
This song always reminds me of high school show choir (AKA Glee Club).
Sweet Freedom by Michael McDonald
We are, like, so totally awesome. We’re on the official Duran Duran blog. And I totally got to write the blurb for the #1 song. Gooooo Culture Brats!
There’s also an excellent Piranha 3-D story you should check out today. Go read you some Culture Brats!
We saw The Expendables this weekend. I’m going to just post my Facebook status review of the film for you: The Expendables – so much testosterone I think I grew a penis. Dolph Lundgren continues to be the baddest ass Fulbright winning MIT recruit ever.
Anyway, not the point. Before the film we saw a trailer for a film called “You Again” that I’m so going to see because it’s like they rounded up some of my favorite women (and VICTOR GARBER!!) and put them in a movie together. Check this out:
Kristen Bell, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Chenowith, Cloris Leachman, AND Betty White?! YES! I think it opens next month. I’ve informed the menfolk that we WILL be going to this.
A Slovakian artist has made a really cool art installation – a house/fort made of books!
For more details, look here. I wonder if it smells like paper. I love that smell.
Titanic 2. This is seriously happening. Here’s the plot, in a nutshell:
On the 100th anniversary of the original voyage, a modern luxury liner christened “Titanic 2,” follows the path of its namesake. But when a tsunami hurls an ice berg into the new ship’s path, the passengers and crew must fight to avoid a similar fate.
And the trailer…
Thanks to everyone on the ‘net for pointing this out. It’s HILARIOUS and brilliant.
I ran across this yesterday and just about fell off the sofa laughing: The Worst of Glamour Shots. I think my current fave is:
It’s got everything. Big hair? Check. Insane shirt? Check. Tilted head? Check. Collar grab? Check.
Fess up, who did a Glamour Shots session in the late 80s/early 90s?
I can’t believe I haven’t played this here before. Joan Jett rocks.
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts – I Hate Myself For Loving You
I know it’s been done before in the 1970s (trust me, I saw it) but finally, a real use for 3-D: PORN!
Despite this, other major 3-D sex flicks are now reportedly in the works. Adult entertainment firm Hustler is reportedly working on a three-dimensional porno-spoof of the lithe, blue aliens in “Avatar,” while Italian director Tinto Brass plans to film a 3-D version of his classic 1979 erotic film “Caligula,” based loosely on the dissolute life of the Roman emperor.
Yes, that’s right, Hustler’s classic film Caligula, starring Peter O’Toole, Helen Mirren, Malcolm McDowell and John Gielgud, with a screenplay by Gore Vidal will FINALLY be re-done in 3-D the way Larry Flynt probably always wanted it to be.
Look what you’ve done James Cameron.
