Icehouse if you please...

After the game (continual stream of profanity) I went shopping with Sarah cause I'd have otherwised stayed here and pounded all the leftover beer from when Van and Sara were here. And to add insult to injury, motherfucking cocksucker. We better whip some Tiger ass next weekend, or we can officially call this season another failure. Shula, recruit some receivers that can catch a ball. FUCK.

838) Don't Bother to Knock. I was expecting a comedy, but what I got was a psycho character chamber piece and it was awesome. At the end when Marylin is standing there holding a razor blade and looking like she's completely freaking lost it? Yes! Excellent, excellent movie.

837) The Girl of Your Dreams. So the prisoner she decides must be saved is the good looking one that she wants to nail? Women...

- I'm updating now because I'm going to go see some comedian that Charity found out about on myspace. I really should be here watching movies, but I always turn her down for those reasons when she wants me to do this kind of stuff with her and I always feel bad about it, so I decided I'd go this time. Hopefully I'll be back in time to get another one watched before I fall asleep.

Update: Just got home, and I'm glad I went. It turned out that this is a bi-weekly (or fortnightly, as our friends across the pond might say) event that a guy that I knew runs. We walked in and he immediately comes over and is like "get this guy out of here, he's not welcome!" so we talked for a few minutes and I was embarassed to not remember his name but I faked it pretty well until he asked about how I found out about the show and I had to tell him Charity did and then felt sort of obliged to introduce them and that was kind of awkward until he revealed he couldn't remember my name either so that was a relief. Anyway, every other Thursday he puts on a stand-up showcase for amateur comedians and it started off pretty rough. The first guy forgot his whole set as soon as he started (which was extra funny cause everyone else did as soon as he stopped), the second guy was one of those obnoxious comics that thinks if you squeeze in enough profanity and making fun of the handicapped people will laugh, and the third guy kept acting like we weren't laughing because we were idiots and just weren't smart enough to get it. At that point I was seriously thinking the guy from Atlanta she had heard about damn well better be good, but from then on most of the guys were funny. The headliner (Jared Harris) was there workshopping some jokes for a Comedy Central special, and you could tell a lot of it was new material he was just trying out, but for the most part he was pretty funny. I'd like to see him again when he gets a full routine fleshed out because the older stuff he was more comfortable with was hysterical, so if you're in Atlanta and you see he's appearing somewhere go check him out. Now, to bed.

836) Ride Lonesome. Randolph Scott. Lee Van Cleef. James Coburn. Rosco P. Coltrane. Do you really need more reasons?

- Does anyone know where I can find the official rules for the SEC on deciding a divisional champion? Our boneheaded Auburn fan UPS driver is convinced that in the case of a tie a head to head match is more important than the divisional record, i.e. if Bama had losses to Florida, South Carolina and Auburn, while Auburn has losses to LSU, Ole Miss and Arkansas, then Auburn goes to the SEC championship game because they beat Bama, even though Bama only has one divisional loss. I did a google search for it but didn't really get anywhere and I'm not all that adept at internet research in the first place, so if someone can point me in the right direction I'd certainly appreciate it.

834) Convoy. The song Convoy will always be one of my favorites, if only for the line "eleven long-haired friends of Jesus In a chartreusse microbus." The movie, however, is a different story. It was kind of convoluted, like it starts out as a comical "truckers getting hassled by the man" sort of movie, and then it turns into a "convoys as social barometers" thing and you just sort of scratch your head like "the hell?" I guess this was at the point where Peckinpah was too crippled by his quest to build a snowman inside his left nostril to turn in anything spectacular. Oh well.

835) The Believer. Here's something I don't get: What's the deal with skinheads and those tiny suspenders? And why do they always just have them hanging loose instead of over their shoulders? What's the point of even wearing them?

- Once you see the mugshots, the terrible reality of make-up and airbrushing sinks in...and yet it's still totally hot! Cheerleaders having sex, with each other, in a dirty bathroom stall! It's a total porno come to life! This stuff really happens! I have so got to get out more!

831) The Sea Inside. Astounding. I go back and forth on the subject of euthanasia. As a hardcore right winger with a bent towards the deification of the individual and the rights and liberties that necessarily follow (which pisses me off since I hated Nietzsche and the whole "will to power" when I was studying philosophy, yet somehow always agreed with him), I agree with the whole right to die argument. The man no longer wants to live, who are we to judge and stop him? On the other hand, I'm totally opposed to suicide and would find anyone that assisted in it as morally lacking. So I'm torn on this. Anyway, the makers of the film did an excellent job in presenting all the sides and issues involved and how it affects those around him, and it was a very moving picture.

832) The Triplets of Belleville. Dear France, Your cartoons suck. Please do not attempt to make any more. Best Wishes, Todd.

833) My Life So Far. Is a movie that features both Victorian Era pornography and curling an automatic winner? Yes. Yes it is.

833 down, 167 to go.

- This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Because the coaches didn't coddle Ainge, kiss his ass all during spring practice, and made him prove he's the clear #1 he "wilted" under the pressure and that's why he and UT have sucked this season? If he couldn't handle the pressure of having to win the starting job during the spring, how the hell was he going to handle the pressure of being a QB at a big name school in a tough conference? Shut up, Matt Hayes.

I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch...

...I'd take her if I had one wish .

Yeah, so it might not be the best of ideas to sell them, but If I ever saw a girl with the sense of humor to wear a shirt that said "Who Needs Brains When You Have These?", I would ask her to marry me on the spot. That shit is hysterical.

828) The Punisher. Well, at least I was never a fan of the comic so I can't be disappointed on two levels.

829) Legend of the Lost. I have now, officially, seen way too many movies that involve being in the middle of the desert with no water...

830) Operation Condor. I was a little tapped out after Legend of the Lost, but there's nothing like some good, clean, Jackie Chan fun to make life worth living again.
