I'm so addicted to Heroes on NBC it's not funny. So strong is my need to see it that I can't watch it live. It must be on tape so I can forward my way through all the commercials. I've even considered getting cable ( yes, I know, I live in the Dark Ages ) so the picture will be clearer. Adrian Pasdar, shirtless in scrubs in a dusty field was virtually porn. Woof I say, woof!
I will not see Borat. I will not see Night At The Museum. I might see Marie Antoinette, but I'm torn. I love Kirsten Dunst but I hate Sofia Coppola's films. Maybe a handsome gentleman might have to drag me to that one. We'll see. But I saw Shortbus and despite the unrealistically endowed actors, the film was great. Mind you, I'm not complaining about anyone being well-endowed down below, but it was supposed to be 'real sex.' Real sex doesn't usually happen with such elongated personalities, if you know what I mean.
What is happening to the Gilmore Girls? It's kind of dwindling down into the kind of pithy soap opera muck that I'm thankful I miss due to my day job. Lauren Graham is far too talented and hot to be wasted in such mundane ways. Make your paycheck girl, I'm not mad at
'cha, but can you whisper in a writer's ear or two to liven things up? And why haven't we seen Luke shirtless much lately... ?
The film Finding Nemo holds a special place in my heart because I watched it with a close friend before he passed away. And now Disney has decided to turn it into a 30 minute musical. As far as I can tell, it will only be playing in Orlando. The powers that be at Disney, who never do anything in a small way, hired some of the Avenue Q folks, along with the puppet creators from The Lion King. I have a feeling this might be a visually stimulating show. Let's hope they take it on the road and bring it here to Chicago. But not on ice. I would not, could not, see it on ice. I would not, could not, think it nice.
Gina Lollobrigida, one of the most classic beauties of our time and an incredible comic ( you MUST see Come September with Rock Hudson ) , is getting married to a man 34 years younger than her. At 79, she's marrying her lover of more than 22 years. When I'm 79, I hope that I can still understand what marriage is, much less walk down an aisle. I'm really looking forward to the wedding photos. Seriously. I'm not sure I know what a 79 year old bride looks like. Nor do I know what a 79 year old Gina Lollobrigida looks like.
Guess what my NetFlix queue is filled with? Animaniacs! I'll be getting zany to the max with baloney in my slacks ( get your mind out of the gutter ) as soon as I return Blade Runner: The Director's Cut. I'm totally excited about seeing Yakko, Wakko, and Dot again. It's been far too long since I've had my Animania quieted with some of the best cartoon dialog in history. If you hear tons of laughter bordering on insanity near Belmont & Halsted, that's me.
With you in 4/4,
