For a giggle

I found this on a blog I frequent and thought I'd share it here. JoeyMax's blog has made me laugh so hard I cried on numerous occasions with the "how do I do laundry" or "grocery shopping" but the latest vent on how he hated giving massages (I feel sorry for his wife lol) had an extra little humor added. This video almost feels sacrilegious because I love Mortal Kombat so much, but even that can't stop me from laughing right now. So I give you: Gay Mortal Kombat

Crybaby (1989)

Yet another WBW and I know this one will receive mixed reviews. I happen to love John Waters' films. Cecil B. Demented was great...Pink Flamingos was disturbing...and Hairspray was decent in it's own mainstream way. But Crybaby is by far, the best for me! Of course I love Johnny Depp. Find one person who doesn't think he's attractive and I'll call 'em a liar. He is especially attractive as a motorcycle riding, rock n rolling, badass!

Crybaby is great for the campy humor that John Waters is known for. I still sing along with the movie's songs and secretly wish I could be more "vampy" after watching it. One of these days I'm going to buy a low cut shirt, some tight pants, and red lipstick to wear with my hooker heels! Any movie where a woman is called "hatchet face" has to be good, right?

I'm really glad I found this one in the $5 bin tonight. I've wanted it for a while! I can't say it's worth a buy for everyone, but definitely a watch at least. If nothing else you'll get a laugh at Hatchet Face!

Oh and for you guys...Traci Lords herself is in this one. Yes, that Traci Lords! Not to mention, Iggy Pop!

Like it or hate it...It's this week's WBW! And posting this has made me the happiest (pseudo) juvenile delinquent in Alabama!

American Psycho (2000)

This weeks Terror Tuesday is one of the best movies ever! American Psycho is based on a novel by Bret Easton Ellis (One really messed up dude!) A few of his other novels have been adapted into films but none with the success of American Psycho. Less than Zero is another great book/movie. Definitely check it out sometime.
 Now back to the masterpiece that is American Psycho....Set in the 80s, which you all know I adore, it takes a new view on the decade from the Wall Street, yuppie life. This is the film that started my obsession with all things Christian Bale. The opening monologue is simply brilliant. It sets the tone for everything else, the selfishness, the envy, the shallow thoughts of a man... He has a few throughout the movie that are hilarious. The narration is smart and witty, while still being creepy and strange which makes this such a great movie. He is a horrible guy in so many ways but is terrifying and funny simultaneously. More than anything, the ending still screws with my head. If I'm ever really stressed, I watch this and least I'm not as psycho as Patrick! Did I mention I love all things Christian Bale! Yes, he is a hot Welshman. He has an amazing ass (which you see a few times in this movie). He is BATMAN! More than anything else, he is usually a great actor. I have seen some of his work that may have been lacking in some way or another, but this one movie more than makes up for those.

It's hip to be square!

Narcissism at its best

I have the need to listen to Phil Collins and paint the room red, and I've got to return some video tapes now. Until you drop by again...

Solace Lost

Last Saturday I braved the mean streets of ATL (Stone Mountain to be exact) yet again to see the Georgia Battle of the Bands. I was surprised that the other bands were horrible! I wasn't impressed to say the least...until Solace Lost took the stage. I had prepared for their live show, by listening to them constantly for a few days prior, but had no idea what was in store for me. They were loud, hard, and everything I wanted to see in a show! I knew it would be good...but it was simply skull shattering! The crowd was involved, the musicians were on point and I was blown away to say the least. If you ever get the chance to catch a show...definitely do it!
