    Freak Talk About Sex

    There were so many little garbage indie comedies in the 90's doing this thing where unfunny college age guys get high and lament over women. Pining over them while also seeming to actively dislike them. They pontificate endlessly on their misery which is rooted in their displacement from privilege. ie: now they have to do something. We all have to do something, it isn't a special case for white guys who think they're smart.

    The lead actor is such an…

    Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

    I had a fucked up work week and this was all I had the capacity for. I watched this a lot when it came out. It's better than all of the movies it's parodying and I legitimately like the music. Van Dyke Parks himself composed the track that's meant to be Brian Wilson's Smile sessions (AND IT'S REALLY GOOD).

    PS. I saw John C. Reilly rollerskating at the same rink as the Jon Hamm/Corndog , and he's very tall and…

    Feeders 2: Slay Bells

    ★★★★

    I was still doing hair stuff but more in tune with Christmas puppets on ice part 2. A notable amount of Christmas decorations from an assortment of decades including a teddy bear with a plaid scarf*, ornaments, christmas cookies that are not cookies, pine-y things, timeless knick-knacks from Hallmark and/or Walgreens.

    There's also a dead cat that is actually a piece of paper and a boss who hates Christmas.

    *Did I imagine the plaid scarf?

    I was actually dying my hair while this was on but as it turns out, this is the perfect soundtrack for such an activity (if you've already seen it). It had me noticing how nice the sound design is. With a soft sov buzz like a korg warming up. I don't remember the UFO earth landing/take-over being so good. Next year I'll watch it with my whole eyeballs.

    I was recently rewatched the Office for the 8th time instead of watching movies like I should be. I kept thinking that Robert California is probably my favorite recurring guest character and how appropriately cast he was. The Caligula mansion pool party is one of my favorite episodes and every time I rewatch season eight…

    This girl is a rumor. I feel like I've known this girl, but who knows if I really have. Breaking all the walls, beyond the walls, there are no walls. Ideas, memories, grudges, odors, someone whose freedom made me uncomfortable. I've been parts of this girl, not whole parts but essential parts. The only weird thing…

    ★★★★★

    ♰ ♰ ♰ Part cinema-of-transgressionesque gothic lesbian vampire poetry art film and part collection of obscure goth rock music videos. Lots of drapey clothing and beautiful women in black lipstick being witchy. There's no time in my life where this wouldn't be something I was obsessed with, present day included, but had I seen this in high school I would have turned my bedroom into a gothic music video set and started a dream pop band. This is an important object. ♰ ♰ ♰

    Terrence Malick really know how to saturate us in atmosphere. What's happening with naturally occurring light is probably witchcraft, like it should be. If not I want to go to the Terrence Malick ambiance store and buy all the terra cotta lanterns, wicker baskets, camel cigarettes, lacy pajamas, matches, ragdolls .....╭╭╭╭╭╭ ✿ ╯╯╯╯╯ ... smokin cigarettes and watchin captain kangaroo... ≡ ≡✿≡ ≡ ✿ ≡ ≡

    A short ickumentary on incels. Such a strange phenomenon to obsess over obtaining something that, A: isn't yours to obtain, and B: they don't seem to like or even want the thing they can't shut up about. They prefer being alone with their hobbies, which under most circumstances would be fine, but their defining hobby is complaining about and and narrowly categorizing women. The self appointed title of incel means that their loneliness has turned to bitter delusion and a…

    ★★½

    The notion that Dolly Parton wouldn't get into heaven is preposterous. This could have been so much better if anyone cared at all but if you like Dolly it won't matter. She's Dolly Parton walking around saying Dolly Parton things in her Dolly Parton way, wearing weird clothes are impossibly altered to fit her Dolly Parton figure. I've already forgotten the faces of every supporting actor aside from Roddy McDowall who doesn't get nearly enough screen time or dialogue. All the angel stuff was fine but the entire story line about the sad Christmas family can go die.

    It's never quite as good as I remember it being but conceptually it wins every prize. I gotta hand it to A-pix, they really went for it. Lots of gags. Maybe too many?
