First of all, any cock hound that says FOR THE WIN better be doing it ironically, like me, or eff off. BUT, this bloody bits are fantastic.
Foods (kinda) I Dig – Timbits!
First of all let’s get this straight – Tim Horton’s sucks. It’s bloody gross. The sandwiches suck and the coffee is for fools. Don’t go there. But, to get some Timbits you do have to go there, so I take that back. They are kind of OK at doing doughnuts and that, but these little things are all about the variety and the price. Basically they are just… bits. Little bits of doughnut lumps that come in all sorts of flavors and you get TEN of them for $2. 20 cents a bit! Our house is rapidly filling up with the little boxes they come in, as they are a brilliant little after dinner desert, and also Suck Hortons is about 2 minutes down the road from us.
Bands Be Ruling – The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravanganza
I actually kinda forgot about this band until about an hour ago. I work in a kitchen with some lovely people that blast good music from their pods all day and night, and up until this point I had been enjoying their tunes enough just to leave them to it. Tonight thought I thought it would be time to experiment with getting some heavy on and seeing what people say. By people.. I mean the one other person I was working with, and he was loving it. He kept saying the heavier the better (he also said “you listen to some pretty fucking cool music” which is.. true), so after remembering Tony Danza exist, and they are definitely heavy, we got to work on tearing shit up.
They are just one of those bands that are SO tight, which is basically down to one member ruling the entire show. Their guitarist, who certainly wasn’t in their original line up as I would have definitely noticed a man of his size with DOOM printed across his chest… This dude can SHRED. He plays a gigantic 8 string guitar which sounds like it was tuned by a bulldozer and wails on the thing with lightening fingers which look like he’s completely making it up.. except that what’s happening sounds amazing. Check the video on youtube for Yipee-Ki-Yay. No I will not link it.
Seriously, I haven’t actually heard a guitar sound that fucking sharp and painful, then so low and mechanical before. Like actual robot music. Robots that know how to BRING THE MOSH. haha. that’s another one you better be saying ironically. Or not at all maybe. Some parts make your brain want to burst then you’re hands curl into fists and before you know it your punching yourself in the leg. That’s what I call banging tunes.
A Movie – Adaption
How pissing clever is Charlie Kaufman ey? I saw Synecdoche, New York before seeing this and the two certainly remind me of each other, but I would say this one is an ass ton easier going and you can enjoy it without getting too deep or metaphysical over it. The story concerns Charlie’s (played by Nicholas Cage is something good for a change) struggle to adapt a book he loves about the search for rare flowers, written by a woman he’s never met but feels he might be falling in love with. He has no idea how to do the book justice, and just wants to show everyone how beautiful and important flowers are. He ends up writing himself into the story, realising that he can only really ever “write about what you know”. What we see is the culmination of his final script, the writer of the book and the tale of it’s progress, and his attempts and methods to get to this point. It’s really really clever and original and you must see it. The film is about him trying to write another completely different film, but we end up with the process being committed to screen.
I don’t really want to say anything, but it’s such a good idea. If you were a fan of Being John Malkavich and were impressed by the ideas and uniquenss of it, then you’ll love this. The opening scene is actually a sort of making of behind the scenes look at the filming of Being John Malkavich, with the difference simply being that Charlie does not play himself, which puts us right into the reality and the ideas of the movie instantly. The film (as with Synecdoche) is about a writer becoming so confused about getting their point across, and trying to be heard, that they realise they need to actually put themselves into the work. They feel the need for every moment to be expressed, bare it all, and leave themselves exposed. It’s a pretty brave movie and it’s makes up empathize with Charlie, whether he intended us to or not, as he slags himself off throughout the entire script.
It’s actually quite similar to me bangin on on this website. NO, I am in NO WAY comparing myself to the genius and creativity of Charlie Kaufman. I mean it’s kind of like anyone writing on a blog, trying to get something out, but then sometimes finding that the words are never going to be heard as well as they would if you just expressed yourself in person, and through writing you can sometimes trip over your own feet and contradict yourself, starting a new sentence just to justify the last one, and constantly trying to explain yourself more coherently, which then eventually becomes the most incoherent thing ever. I would do it more on here but I’m lazy and I get bored of my own words so give it rather than try harder. Mostly.
