I haven’t heard every album Neil’s made, but of the many I have, this is by far the weirdest. Trans may have been his first synth album, but that was Devo. This is Miami Vice…if Crockett was played by Crispin Glover.
I haven’t attended service in over a decade, but I’m proud of the Episcopal Church for having the courage to do this. And good luck with your new “North American Anglican province,” Former Bishop John-David Schofield. What a lovely congregation of homophobes you should wind up with.
"I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" doesn’t even make mytopfivePitbullsingles (could be the lack of Lil Jon—-god I wish they’d make a whole album together), but I’m glad America has finally put Pit in its Top 5 for the week. Dude has been flicking his tongue and nodding suggestively at you for five years now!
“I somehow feel that the cat got out of the bag before the cat was ever in the bag, and the cat became a wild jungle tiger on the loose. So before this becomes the story of the ‘Tiger That Ate Hollywood’ and the subject of my next film, please let me pull back, cool out and calm things down.”—Jon Peters, Metaphor God. You can read the proposal for Studio Headhere.
So what happened after the end of How I Met Your Mother? Did they know their rooftop neighbors? Did they have to knock on the patio door, freak someone out and introduce themselves? Was anyone even home?
I doubt they tried to jump back over—-much easier to jump down to another roof than up to one. Before the “Professor Mosby” revelation, I hoped Ted’s future wife would live at the property they kinda thoughtlessly, if not suicidally, trespassed on. “…And that’s how I met your mother.”
At the very least, next season better open with them still on that roof. I demand closure.
“Garry Marshall, the director, hasn’t had the nerve to cast a real 15-year-old as Mia, but supplies us instead with Anne Hathaway, who is almost 21 years old, and is a classic beauty in the Daphne Zuniga tradition.”—Found this in Ebert’s Your Movie Sucks. Did he really say “the Daphne Zuniga tradition” without irony? He also wants to know why the director of “the magical Pretty Woman" would make a film as audience-insulting as The Princess Diaries. Seriously considering a separate Ebert WTF tumblr.
Abel Ferrara is taking another walk on the wild side with a re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which will be contemporized and titled Jekyll and Hyde.
Forest Whitaker and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson are attached to play the lead roles in the classic tale about a doctor who invents a potion that unleashes his violent alter ego.
