When did James Hetfield turn into Stuart Smalley?
So that's what Donnie Darko was all about, huh? After seeing it a couple of times and stumbling through the official site, I'd gotten as far as, "Okay, so the jet engine was from... the future? A future? And he had to... had to... UHHHHHHH" And then I gave up. What the hell, I still liked it on an emotional level. Sparkle Motion! Tears for Fears! "I'm voting for Dukakis!" It had a sweet/creepy blend you'd never quite seen in a movie before. But who knew the whole thing was so carefully constructed? Check it out. (It's at ZZZalon, but it's actually quite good.)
Looks like Layne's given up blogging, I remember thinking to myself. He's got the music thing going on now, and I guess that's his main deal these days. Well, good for him. It was fun while it lasted, blogfather... Oh me of little faith!
Did anybody else see The 50 Greatest Condiments of All Time on Food Network? The best was when Michael Ian Black was like, "I don't think it would have 'blown up' the way it did if they'd called it farm dressing." And the way he said it without moving his face, it was so hilarious. He should do that more often! And I also liked Best Eastern Front Ever on the History Channel. (Patton Oswalt: "Stalingrad? More like Downgrad!")
If you like that new show Crossballs and its bellowing straight-man host Chris Tallman, be sure to check out his terrific no-budget sci-fi-comedy series Time Belt at Channel101.com. And then watch all the other shows. And then cross your fingers for a Channel 101 series on FX.

Re: "Honest" -- Rot, Yes?
Hey, what are you doing inside on a day like today anyway? Don't you know the whole world is out there waiting for you? Don't you?
Yeah, me neither.Posted by Jim Treacher at July 24, 2004 01:27 PM
