It's windy outside and tomorrow is garbage day. I was just out and every garbage can in the city is tipped over. Who's gonna clean all this up? I will if I have to, but I'd prefer to not. Also I'm pretty sure I just saw a drunken Neil Young stumbling down the street.
I have a lot of pictures to post from Saturday. It was another Adventure Day, this time through... well I won't spoil it. I'll write about it later. I just don't have the energy right now. If you're a blogger, you understand.
What else though. I've been doing a lot of watching of stuff lately. Movies mostly. I watched Fight Club again on Friday. I twittered all about it, you may have noticed. I still like it. I don't necessarily agree with the philosophy behind it and I hope no one ever hits me, but I really enjoy that movie.
Watchmen! Pretty great. It's not perfect by any means and I do have some quibbles, but this is clearly the best possible movie that can be made from that source material. In fact now that the movie has had a chance to settle in, I think I enjoy it more now than I did right after I saw it (a few hours ago). It was an advance screening and it was a real who's who of the Salt Lake comic scene. Jeff Vice, Greg, Jimmy, Lucas, uh... Red Beard Headphones Guy, Big Forehead Guy, Always Looking for Back Issues of Deadpool Guy... yeah, the cream of the crop.
Would you believe I've never seen any Spike Lee Joint before? I watched Do the Right Thing this weekend with the Netflix instant watch dealio, which I didn't even know existed. I really like how stylized it was. A film doesn't have to be realistic to still be realistic, you know? I know it didn't win any Oscars but I figured it must have at least been nominated for Best Picture. Nope. Just goes to show. The Oscars are dumb. When was the last time anybody even heard of Driving Miss Daisy? According to the Oscars that was the best movie of 1989, and yet Do the Right Thing endures as one of the greatest American films of all time. Also, our current President took his Michelle to see it on their first date. So take that!
Speaking of the Oscars, winners always say "thank you" when they get their award. But shouldn't they be saying "you're welcome"? Don't you give people awards as a way of saying thank you to them? Thank you for your great sound editing, here's some gold.
Whatever. You don't come here to read about movies. You come here for grainy photos of hot babes. (that phrase will get me some google hits). Sunday I saw some performances by this performance collective/band. I think they're called The Women? The Lovers? We are Devo? Something like that. I'm not sure. None of them introduced themselves before playing. Which I think is rude. Nevertheless, they were all very talented and I'll be following their careers closely. Uncomfortably closely.
The one on the left is Hallie, who I think is a secret Friend of Microsuede? She's listed as a follower, I know that much. Hallie, if you're out there stop in and say hello.
