Movie of the Moment: This Film Is Not Yet Rated

July 19, 2008

This time around, I’m going to let YouTube do most of the talking.  I saw this movie about a month ago and I haven’t foggiest why I haven’t made this a movie of the moment.  Future filmmakers and movie watchers take notice, this one’s for you.

But that’s not all… someone took one of the beginning clips of the movie and posted that too.  It’s a real attention grabber to something you sort’ve already knew about.

What this documentary is out to prove is that the MPAA is biased against independent films and sex scenes in films with many examples.  It really makes you think about why a movie is rated the way it was and what were they thinking at the time…  And some movies you wonder how it slipped by the radar (Monster’s Ball anyone???). 

Unfortunately, the only way I’m aware that you can see this movie is through Netflix.  If it’s for sale, it’s definitely one I’d buy.  You best believe it’s not for the kiddies or faint of heart.  There’s lots of nudity and dirty language galore, but its hilarious at the same time.  So if you have Netflix, put that on the list.  In the meantime, I found that someone uploaded the movie on YouTube in 10 parts, about 10 minutes each.  So go education and entertain yourself if you don’t have Netflix.

Wiffle Battle? Really??

July 16, 2008

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a whole neighborhood battle going on in Greenwich, CT.  Not gangs or guns or drugs or prostitution or dance crews, nope, this is a battle over wiffle ball.  Wiffle.  Ball.

More specifically, there was an empty lot that some neighborhood kids decided to convert into a wiffle ball field where the local youth could come play a random game with the plastic toys.  But this caused a problem to the local townsfolk that live in that neighborhood who angrily declare “Not in my backyard!”  Which actually isn’t due to zoning laws.  And that’s one of the issues that the locals are using against these teens.

I can’t believe they are complaining against this when there are far more worse things these kids could be doing.  Gangs, drugs, prostitution, dance crews… you name it!  Granted, this is in the middle of Suburbia, White USA, but still…  And if you wanna get into a land discussion…  If it’s not being used, why complain?  Build a house or a small shack to house… I dunno… fireworks.  Yeah, that makes just about as much sense, right?

Obviously you can tell whose side I’m on.  I wouldn’t have brought it up…  But I heard this has made NATIONAL headlines.  Really?  People in L.A. know what’s going on in our tiny state?  I also wonder if this would make ANY news at all if this happened in like… Bridgeport, New Haven, or maybe Madison, Meriden, Middletown, or, dare I say it, Sterling, CT?  I’m just saying.  This state isn’t having a good rep lately…  Just a few weeks ago we had that now infamous hit-and-run caught on CCTV in Hartford.  How’s that coming along, by the way?  On the subject of cameras, briefly, to the crooks and criminal present and future: stop it.  The first 5 minutes of the news feature pictures of robbers caught on tape, some captured, some will be tomorrow.  C’mon now, it’s 2008.  Let’s get it together and play wiffle ball!

Not really impressive for the most part.  The black/blue and purple/yellow low tops look kind of promising.

Cath

July 14, 2008

“And soon everybody will ask what became of you,

because your heart was dying fast,

and you didn’t know what to do”

MTV.com recently premiered Death Cab For Cutie’s new video for “Cath”.  Great song, great video.  Peep it.

War @ Home

July 10, 2008

I always wondered what it would be like to have a roommate.  Just hanging out, drinking, parties; living the free and independent life always seemed so appealing to me, but then I realized that people and their personalities clash.  There are things that you may do that are completely normal to you, but might annoy the crap out of someone else.  Here is a typical example… where one roommate inconsiderately slams the door shut every morning on his way to class.  Well, this is what happens when the other roommate decides to get them back lol.  Butter+Floor=Hilarious.

It’s Coming…

July 8, 2008

Yeah the Wolfpack fitted caps are officially on the way.  I was told to expect them to arrive on the 8th of August.  My homey Jason, from Pegasus in Harlem, hit me up with the blueprints of what the actual hat will look like.  Peep em’ below.  Notice how the colorway is Duck Black?  Yeah they are made of a special material (Duck), kind of like canvas, that does not fray as much as regular wool.

Anyone who is interested in copping one, just let me know what your hat size is and of course I’ll need cash.  They will probably be $35.  It’s a first come, first serve basis, because as you know when the sizes are gone that will be it.  So, just hit me up.

Bad News, Good News, Hulu

July 3, 2008

I always like to hear the bad news first to get it out of the way, then the good news.  Sometimes it doesn’t always work out because chronolically, it might not matter.  For example:  Bad news–your car exploded today.  Good news–you just got great detail work on it yesterday.  Sucks, huh? 

Anyway, the bad news I didn’t want to dwell on because that stuff will only get you depressed the more you read, listen, watch and think about it UNLESS you are doing something about it.  Unfortunately, the things that have been done (12-year-old girl found dead in Vermont, ignored woman dies in hospital waiting room) you can’t change but can only hope and pray it doesn’t happen again. 

As for good news, a murder has been caught in Illinois. (By the way, the “s” is silent… sorry, just a pet peeve.  And so is the last “s” in Arkansas.) The murder killed about 8 people… some with an axe.  The sex offender who kidnapped the 12-year-old girl is also in custody.  I’m emotionally affected by these crimes because some of my best friends have been molested.  However, I can’t say if I think the death penalty is fitting.  Maybe life in prison would be better.  Let the fathers in jail have their way with the offender.  But the fact one more is in jail is good news.  The big breaking story on CNN at the moment is 15 hostaged were rescued from a rebel group in Columbia, 3 of which are American.  The shocking part is they had been hostages for 5 years or more. 

There’s political news too, but I’ve had my fill and have been taking the week off.  Plus I don’t want to be another blogger yappin’ my fingers off about what some other blogger said or saying something that’s been said already.  I will say that I think it’s silly about the fuss people make about lapel flag pins and patriotism.

The big thing right now that I’m excited about has been out for a while now…  But sometimes, I’m a little slow.  Hulu.com is something amazing.  I think of it as a cross breed hybrid of YouTube and Netflix (instant watch).  High quality video of some of your favorite TV shows and a decent collection of movies.  No membership required!  Just look for something you want to watch, and hit play.  What I like about this site is it’s abundance of SNL clips.  NBC.com edits them down.  Here, you get the whole thing sketch.  They have the full screen feature, and if you don’t want that, they have an awesome “turn the lights down” feature.  It’s nothing big, but I found it cool.  I haven’t watched any of the movies yet, but soon enough.

I don’t have a Movie of the Moment right now.  If I were to pick one, it’d be Gone Baby Gone due to the Vermont story I spoke of earlier.  Not a movie for happy times, but Michelle Monaghan is hot.  You’ve seen her also in Mission Impossible: III, The Heartbreak Kid.  She looks like Liv Tyler.  But I just have a thing for brunettes and light eyes.  Look her up.

Faggots

July 2, 2008

This tasty dish which seems to be some kind of TV dinner created by a guy named Mr. Brain from Great Britain. I guess the creator is going throughout Britain promoting his dish. Since the Doody family, also from Great Britain, won a statewide competition which I believe consisted of who can eat the most faggots, they have become the spokespeople for this product.

This is what the 14 year old son said when asked about how he felt about being a spokeperson for Mr Brain’s Faggots:

“When young Lewis, the Doody’s 14-year-old son, was asked what he thought about being a spokesperson for faggots he replied, “I can’t wait for school to start again so I can tell all my friends about the great taste. My friends will love faggots!”

I cant even make that shit up. There’s the link to the story.

I think this is what Killa Cam would say about it:

“Wild Homo.”

Hello, MCFLY!!!!!

July 2, 2008

I love the Back To the Future series. Now I can be just like Marty Mcfly and purchase the McFly Nike’s.

The much anticipated “McFly” Nike Hyperdunk is set to officially release today somewhere in Santa Monica. Too bad thats so far. I would buy a pair. Then all I would need is a sweet hoverboard and a red bubble vest.

Respect The Eldery

July 1, 2008

As the title says.  Respect your elders!  I saw this video on Tasty Booze and almost fell out of my chair laughing.  It starts off as just another video of some kids skateboarding and then….  all you hear is the sound of someone mashing their brakes.  It turns out to be some douche in a Benz that almost hit an old woman who had happened to fall asleep in the process of crossing the street lol.  The guy gets what he deserves for honking his horn like a complete asshole.  Just watch the video.  Hilarious.
