Eminem's Mosh
Topic: Arts 7:01 pm EDT, Oct 26, 2004

[ Marshall Mathers gets decidedly political. This is pretty intense stuff, but in the end, a very positive message to get out and vote.

Not that you can't tell who Slim Shady is pulling for.

I think the last lyric is among the best ever written, and specifically, "in these closing statements, if they should argue, let us beg to differ, as we set aside our differences, and assemble our own army" is quite simply incredible.

Showtime - Dead Like Me - About the Show, Characters, Episode Guide, and Downloads
Topic: Arts 3:24 pm EDT, Sep 14, 2004

Okay I've been a fan of this show since the very first episode. Love it love it love it. The writing is top notch and the premiss is that Grim Reapers are real. They exist on this earth to reap the souls of those who have died... But they still have to have day jobs.

It's been nominated for two emmys unfortunately neither are for writing or lead actress (ellen muth is cool:

[ Yeah, the box set of the first season was recently acquired here at chez biltmore. Back when we had showtime, i watched a few eps, and i loved what i saw. I've been watching them in order now and they're every bit as good as I thought. -k]

] Plot Outline: A series of Rashomon-like flashback
] accounts shape the story of how one man defeated three
] assassins who sought to murder the most powerful warlord
] in pre-unified China. (more) (view trailer)

Yeah I saw this on opening day. Jet Li rules. The movie's historical heart is in the right place and Qin Shihuang would have liked it I think.

Online Comic: I can't stop thinking
Topic: Arts 10:11 am EDT, Sep  2, 2004

Just some old web-comic I stumbled across. I doubt anyone would find it special enough to propagate. But, I enjoyed it enough for my own archival purposes.

[ I read that... always liked scott mccloud -k]

Kevin Smith plans 'Clerks' sequel
Topic: Arts 10:05 am EDT, Sep  2, 2004

Oh Yeah!

The sequel -- titled "The Passion of the Clerks" -- is set to begin shooting in January. Miramax Films, which turned the original into a cult-hit after buying it at the Sundance Film Festival, plans to distribute the follow-up.
So far, he said he has gotten only positive responses from the people who have read the script, so he decided to move forward with it. Both O'Halloran and Anderson are signed on, and Jason Mewes, will return as stoner Jay, the "hetero life-mate" of Smith's stoic Silent Bob.

"hetero life-mate" ? Hmmm. Interesting use of words...

[ They're Jay's words, actually... It's from one of the later films, though for the moment my brainful of trivia is failing me as to which, or if maybe it was in more than one... -k]

Kevin Smith plans 'Clerks' sequel

Topic: Arts 1:23 pm EDT, Aug 21, 2004

I want to see this, but I am worried. I mean, all the Alien movies, and all the Predator movies have been rated R. Put them together, its needs to be NC-17 or X for it to rule. I won't settle for anything less than hot Alien on Predator action!

[ We saw it last night... i wouldn't characterize it as "GO SEE THIS RIGHT NOW" or anything, but it was reasonably entertaining for a crappy action movie. If you're expecting Alien, or even Alien^3, that's not what you get. It was just what I expected all in all. If you prefer the suspense of these creatures stalking each other in half lit scenes, never quite getting a full view of either, you won't like it. This is action flick, head on, slo-cam ass kicking. It's good for that, but it's not like the others. -k]


Dental Bliss Spa?
Topic: Arts 10:14 am EDT, Aug 20, 2004

You have GOT to be kidding... Saw an ad for this on the tube this morning.
Too much work... too many errands... too many soccer practices. Too much stress... too much anxiety... too little time! Too little of you to go around. Too little rest... too little relaxation... too little tranquility. You need a little bliss!

Imagine yourself in a beautiful alpine chalet. You’re seated in a soft leather recliner, in front of a roaring fireplace, listening to the enchanting melodies of a baby grand. The mouth-watering aroma of fresh baked breads and cookies is tempting your willpower, and the soothing sound water is washing your tension far, far away. All the while you’re eagerly anticipating your hot stone massage.

This must be a luxurious spa high in the rockies!

No, you’re at Dentalbliss Spa in Franklin. Hard to imagine that dentistry and bliss actually belong side by side. Now for the first time, these seemingly opposite ideas are woven and melded together for the ultimate dental experience.

Everything at Dentalbliss has been meticulously designed as a feast for your senses. You’ll first notice the 2-acre, natural wooded setting of our chalet-inspired facilty, featuring 2 babbling creeks fed by a 150-year-old springhouse with a working spring. Walking trails meander throughout the park-like setting. Once inside, warm woods, natural stone, 60-foot vaulted ceilings and an expanse of glass invite the tranquility of the outdoors in. Ten fireplaces, two high-definition plasma tv’s, nine aquariums, a full range of massage and aesthetic care, live piano music, even childcare... all serve to relax, pamper and indulge you.

[ That's absurd. -k]

Singer Rick James Dies at 56
Topic: Arts 8:16 pm EDT, Aug  9, 2004

] Funk legend Rick James (search), best known for the 1981
] hit "Super Freak," (search) died Friday, apparently of
] natural causes, police said. He was 56.

The man was extremely talented, I'll give him that. But I have to wonder how much his life was shortened, by the drug excesses of his youth. :/

[ I don't have to wonder... i'm thinking probably about, say 20-25 years, give or take. Truly unfortunate... -k]

Alan Moore | The man who invented the future
Topic: Arts 2:36 pm EDT, Jul 22, 2004

] The funny thing is that Alan Moore hates to talk about
] film and television, because, as he explains later in our
] interview, both "have a lot to answer for." He's not
] talking about how they've distilled his densely
] researched, intricate tales of socio-historical
] interrogation, like "From Hell" and "The League of
] Extraordinary Gentlemen," into narrowcasted popcorn
] movies. Instead, he means the way they've had such an
] impact on human consciousness that many people were only
] able to articulate the horrific reality of 9/11 by
] comparing it to a disaster film.
] Moore clearly believes that the same mechanism has
] foisted a deadly, unwanted and unnecessary war upon the
] world. "Television and movies have short-circuited
] reality," he asserts. "I don't think a lot of people are
] entirely clear on what is real and what is on the
] screen."

[ This is a very good read... Alan Moore is an important artist of our time. -k]
