Movie Review

I went and saw "The Wrestler" yesterday. It was very good and I won't say anything more to ruin it for you. Speaking of wrestling...

Hippy Bathday to Me

I know my birthday is almost 6 months off (thankfully) but in case you were already wondering what to get me then let me suggest Erin Gray. Kato Kaelin would be a bad idea.

Oh, nevermind. I actually read the details. They say " All calls are less than 30 seconds in length, but this may vary from celebrity to celebrity." So maybe Erin would be charmed by me and give me a few minutes. Maybe she wouldn't have anything scheduled after my call and wouldn't need to rush off. Maybe, just maybe. I continued to read the details only to discover "The call will automatically terminate in less than 30 seconds". Well that sucks. It certainly doesn't sound like the length of the call varies at all. In 30 seconds I might manage to blurt out that I loved her wardrobe on Buck Rogers. But it might still be fun to talk to someone famous, right? It would be hilight of my birthday! My brush with greatness! Well, not exactly: "The celebrity may call minutes after you place your order or they may call approximately 7 days later. It's entirely up to them and their schedules. They may call at any time day or night because they live in various time zones so it's important for you to make certain the answering machine is always on" Thus it's entirely possible my brush with greatness would be a message on my answering machine saying, "Sorry I missed you -- I won't be calling back." Those darn celebrities! They are so busy being, well, celebrities.

Los Angeles is under Attack!

It began around 8pm this evening. First the sound of distant explosions getting closer and closer. Then came the unexplainable lights in the sky. The inescapable conclusion: We are being invaded. My guess is by Amazon Women from Venus. I don't know how long Los Angeles can hold out. The invaders have already created a dense smoke screen that is making organizing a defensive response difficult. I fear that the city will fall by the dawn and that Angeleno males will be rounded up and sent to Venus for their reproductive services. Hmmm, come to think of it, Los Angeles might fall before the dawn.

In Other news I saw Rebels & Redcoats - How Britain Lost America on TV today. It was excelent. After watching I have a new understanding of why soldiers still study the Revolutionary War. Very appropriate viewing for the 4th of July. Hmmm, the fourth of.... Nevermind about the whole Amazon Women from Venus thing. Drats.

Son of Deep Thoughts

Have you ever wondered who first realized feeding peanut butter to a dog was funny? Did they think of it themselves or did their dog just get into their stash of newfangled peanut butter? Discuss amongst yourselves...
