Un-pimp Your Ride I

Chuck Norris Fact of the Day: Chuck Norris has volunteered to remain on earth after the Rapture; he will spend his time fighting the Anti-Christ.

I got eight hours of work scheduled this week. Four down, four to go.

I didn't get to show Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl for Movie Night #6 like I intended; I ordered the DVD online and it still hasn't arrived yet. The audience voted to see Battle Royale. Good choice. Lot of Movie Night virgins came out this time -- Eric, Sunny, Mike Lee, Hana, and Paul. Hope you guys had fun (I know Sunny did) and come again. I'm gonna need a bigger house soon.

I've seen the flash of teeth

Movie Night #6

  • He's not as cool looking as that Korean guy from that other movie. No, but this guy is probably cooler than Lee Byung-hun in real life.
  • Wasn't he in Ichi the Killer? I hated that movie. I understand. But you gotta admit he was cool in that movie, even if you didn't like it.
  • Yeah, I guess. He could blow smoke out of his cheeks. That was cool. Indeed.
  • So, it's an action movie then? Just because he's holding a gun you automatically presume it's an action flick? Was Reservoir Dogs an action flick?
  • Geez, calm down. You're gonna give yourself a tumor. So it's not action. I hate you.
  • Are you gonna tell me what it's about or what? I'll make it short: Tarantino + Japanese manga + Snatch + a gay elf = this movie.
  • That's... I mean... my head's gonna explode. Grats.
  • Cuando? You're Mexican now? 8:00pm this sabado. That's Saturday for you gringos.

Sorry, I'm taken that one game when he shot four airballs, in a row?
"Wait, that was his rookie year."
So, you think J.J. Redick would throw up four airballs in a game next year?
"Wait, but Redick is so much older than Kobe was. He was 17."
So, that's his fault. He thought he was good enough to hang with the big boys. It's clear he wasn't.
"But they're winning right now."
They lost the last game. Because he shot an airball at the buzzer. Hence our conversation.
"Wait, he was fouled!"
They smothered the air around his hands?
"Yeah, they totally fouled his air."
Air never bothered Jordan.

"Oh my God, I love you! Thank you so much!"
Lady, you don't even know me.

when your day is through, and so is your temper

Movie Night #5

Speaking of Firefly,

  • What's this about? The poster kinda sucks. This screening will be a little different. I'm going to show you guys the first episode of the show first, then the movie. Straight from the back of the DVD - Five hundred years in the future there's a whole new frontier, and the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity is eager to stake a claim on the action. They'll take any job, legal or illegal, to keep fuel in the tanks and food on the table. But things get a bit more complicated after they take on a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian regime. Now they find themselves on the run, desperate to steer clear of Alliance ships and the flesh-eating Reavers who live on the fringes of space.
  • So I wouldn't understand the movie if I don't see the show? Not exactly, but you'll be more familiar with the setting and the characters, thus enriching your experience with the movie.
  • Wouldn't that be really long? About 3 hours total. It's like watching Titanic, except less brokeback.
  • I'm not into sci-fi. I think I'll pass. Give it a chance. I didn't expect much from the show either, but I was hooked after the first episode.
  • What's so great about it? It's all about the characters. Mal (the captain) is more Han Solo than Han Solo. Jane (the muscle) steals every scene he's (yes, it's a guy) in. Those two guys alone are worth watching the show for. Then there's River... okay she's a bit annoying but she kinda redeems herself in the movie. Think Wolverine, without claws and a penis.
  • Did you just say... Moving on.
  • Snacks? Yes Johny, there will be cheese sticks courtesy of the Wench. I think.
  • When does it start? This Saturday at 7:00pm. We're starting a little bit earlier than usual so all you latecomers better shape up.

Take It Easy

Chuck Norris fact of the day: If Chuck Norris round-house kicks you, you will die. If Chuck Norris' misses you with the round-house kick, the wind behind the kick will tear out your pancreas.

I take it back, THIS could be the greatest movie ever made.

Movie Night #5 could be held this week, but I'm not sure yet. Stay tuned.

tell them now your pleasure's set upon slow release

Pop Quiz Hotshot

Chuck Norris fact of the day: Chuck Norris CAN in fact 'raise the roof'. And he can do it with one hand.

I rode on the bus yesterday for the first time in what, 12 years? It was fun. Though I kept thinking that there might be a bomb on the bus and that it would explode if we go below 50 MPH. Thankfully we didn't go on the freeway.

never gonna come back down
