|Bet that felt good!
No, of course not, it's this story HERE
. As always, fact is slightly
more boring than fiction. Film~wise, I took a trip to the cinema - my first since September of last year! So bedazzled and confused was I by the experience that I decided to make the most of this journey and watch two films. First up was MADAGASCAR: ESCAPE 2 AFRICA
That reminds me, how is GIRLSONBIKES.COM getting on?
I'm not going to waste your time (or any more of mine) on this 'movie' but I will point out that there were trailers for three dog~based films before it. Have we totally
run out of ideas? Yes, what a dumb question. Next up was YES MAN
. It has a charm but if you don't like Zooey "So Yummy, She's Scrummy!" Deschanel
or Rhys "Conchords" Darby
then there's not much going for this piece.
Strewth, Cam likes me!
with laughter when Darby
was onscreen and purred
with trouser~tightening delight whenever Zooey
was visible but, other than that, not much else is memorable. The premise is too light and Carrey's conversion into being a Yes
man does not come off as believable. Still, it's got Zooey
singing on it which more than makes up for everything else. Her band, Munchausen By Proxy
, have some top tunes, leading me to 'get' the soundtrack. If you listen closely in one of the party scenes you'll hear the excellent Ana Ng
by my faves THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS
"Me? Trouser~tightening??? Why Cam, you old romantic..."
is back! Now, in my youth (hell, even ten years ago), this would have me reaching for the party balloons and prophlyactics like no other. Sadly his returns these days don't inspire the same fevour as the younger Cam. His new release, Years Of Refusal
, does have some sparklingly good moments. Well, two. Namely the tracks Something Is Squeezing My Skull
and It's Not Your Birthday Anymore
where the Moz~man shows off some vocal skills and traits that he hasn't before - quite new and exciting.
Oui, je bored...
But that's where new
end. The band are bored. Either that or they have no new ideas or interest in musical diversity (I suspect the latter). All the music sounds the bloody same! Go listen to Viva Hate
or Vauxhall & I
where the Moz & Co.
show that the studio is somewhere a work of art can be created - not just cracked off in some arse~hole
of a rehearsal room. To make matters worse for the 'fan', Mozza
has included two tracks (previously released as singles) that were included on the last Greatest Hits
compilation. Something is squeezing my wallet
Actually, I didn't pay
for it. This is the second time I have not purchased a Morrissey
album and, if he continues in this dull fashion, I shan't be again. Elsewhere it's made up of songs that would not have made B~Sides for the Ringleaders Of The Tormentors
album (which did nothing for me at all) such is their blandosity
(new word for '09!). From die~hard fan to just~plain bored. Well done STEVEN
Not often you see a picture of Genesis in polite society, but here we are...
Telly~wise, it's a bit of a wasteland though big thanks to BBCFOUR
for doing a Prog Rock season. Nice! Well, it kept this Genesis
fan happy anyway. CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER
has begun and the lack of racism is most notable though the misogyny and sexism is up. Swings and roundabouts I guess. Must be said, I haven't really seen any of it though I did catch boyband 'hero' Ben "Remember A1? No, Me Neither" Adams
say "I met my last three girlfriends on FaceBook." If only I realised that's what it was for. Superpoke
What, no mention of me at all in Stuff~On~TV? Bastid!
Ever the channel to try and match the BBC, ITV1 have created and shat
- a worthy opponent to BONEKICKERS
in the "This Can't Possibly Be As Bad As It Is" category. I have tried (and failed) to watch it twice. Couldn't do more than ten minutes. Shame on Phillip Glenister
who, rather loftily I feel, claimed that he was only interested in real
drama. And that accent! By Satan's nut~bag
, what were
you thinking? (And, by extension, everyone else involved in this atrocity.)
Sadly, we won't be waiting 80 years for her to deficate...
