There’s always room for Jell-O.

June 30, 2009 at 10:40 am (food) (, , , , )

When people ask me why I live here, as messy and crazy and fucked up as it is sometimes, I refer them to this link of the Jell-O Mold Competition that recently took place at the Gowanus Studio Space here in Brooklyn.

And then I go skipping off into the night.

The winnah, with Jell-O Jewels!

Finally, a quiet injustice has been…justicized

Ernie Hudson is The Ghostbuster

This is via The Nerdist, Chris Hardwick’s blog, and it is a response to the fact that Ernie “Winston Zeddemore” Hudson isn’t in the original Ghostbusters trailer.

Fuck you, healthiness!

June 29, 2009 at 2:13 pm (pop culture) (, )

Michael McMahon of Nuttfield Health in England is concerned about the number of fat people on TV, and is scared that they might make it seem like being fat is normal.

Here’s the research he cites to back this up:

Researchers found many obese people refused to take any action about their situation.  The survey of over 2,000 individuals also revealed many obese people fail to recognise they have a problem at all.

Right.  I’m sure they were tooth and nail absolutely “refusing” to take action and completely blind to the ways that obesity has affected them.  Those stubborn fatties and their denial.

So basically, you asked people who were overweight if they were trying to lose weight, and their “no” answers were translated as “No no, I’m actually quite happy with myself exactly the way I am, and it’s mainly because of all the fatties on TV that are just like me!  Fuck you, healthiness!”

That sounds about right to me.

What’s worse than starring in weird ad campaigns overseas?

June 29, 2009 at 11:14 am (movies) (, , , )

I think that would be starring in weird movies overseas.

Case in point:  Brittany Murphy in The Ramen Girl.

The movie is described by Wikipedia as “An American woman is stranded in Tokyo after breaking up with her boyfriend. Searching for direction in life, she trains to be a râmen chef under a tyrannical Japanese master.”

So basically, Kill Bill, but without all the violence and badassness, but with the Asian training of a white girl.

Watch the trailer after the jump, if you think you’re ready for it.  (Spoiler alert: you aren’t)

This should have been sexier

June 27, 2009 at 8:36 am (pop culture) (, , )

This morning we saw Charlize Theron in a movie and were discussing what happened to her.  She just seemed to lose her ridiculous amounts of sex appeal in the last few years.

Case in point, this commercial.  On paper, it’s described as “Charlize Theron steadily walking towards the camera, whilst removing her clothing, giving a ‘come hither’ look, and saying things in a low sexy tone.”

But in reality, it looks like this:

Now with more meaning!

I own this.  It’s a velvet Michael Jackson painting.  Now it’s become a bit of a shrine.  And now I’m done.

An Open Letter to Martin Scorcese

June 26, 2009 at 8:04 am (movies, my life) (, , , )

Dear Short Stack,

I was really happy to hear that you were filming part of your HBO series here in my neighborhood- right across the street!  I even told my family all about it!  How fun would it be, I said, to see you in our deli or our coffeeshop!

Cut to last night at about 10:30, when I mentioned to Kumail that we had forgotten to repark the car and that we hadn’t really seen the car since Monday morning.  We decided to go for a walk and just check and make sure that our little Protege was doing ok.  You understand, don’t you, Marty?  It’s important to keep track of your things.  So imagine my shock when it wasn’t where we left it!

I posted this back in October, so I thought I’d repost it now.  I am surprised at how broken-hearted I am tonight.

Seriously, I watch this anytime I wanna feel awed.  It’s Michael Jackson’s performance of Billie Jean at the Motown 25th Anniversary show.  It’s the first time the world ever saw the moonwalk.

Skip to 3:40 if you have no soul and just want to see the moonwalk.

Things you should know about me.

June 25, 2009 at 11:55 am (my life, pop culture) (, , , , )

  • As of today, I am boycotting Perez Hilton.  He’s an idiot, he wants to be a celebrity more than he wants to dish on celebrity gossip, and his moronic justification of why he called someone else a faggot is deplorable.  Also, the shit you draw on celeb pictures isn’t clever.  So I’m done.  If you need me, I’ll be over at Oh No They Didn’t, which is way cooler and less cocksuckery.
  • In high school I was so obnoxious in  Spanish class that I had to finish the semester by going to the class in the principal’s office.  The straw that broke the camel’s back was me sneezing and my bff Carlos yelling “SALUD!”  (Carlos, if it was the other way around, please forgive me.  Either way, we both got kicked out, right?)  Carlos was extra annoying because he speaks fluent Spanish and yet was in an intro-level Spanish class.
  • Kumail and I are going to this event on Sunday.

Yes, it is a charity event based around the movie Serenity, and yes, there will be dancing and stuff from the movie, and yes, I’m fucking going.  So are you.
