This is fine by me in a purely selfish, movie library sense. The Big Blue, La Femme Nikita, Leon, The Fifth Element, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Dogma, The Clerks Cartoons and a smattering of Japanese films is all I really need anyway.
Oh and The Lord of The Rings. Peter damn Jackson better not sign that petition. He better not.
Well that’s pretty much everything i saw as a teenager, might still have some vhs tapes for when i decide to hole up in the no polanski bunker. Well that and Tarantino. Did Tarantino sign the petition?
“The best that I can say for “NCIS: Los Angeles,” is that, if every decent television show on television were suddenly yanked from the schedule, and this was the best show remaining on television, I’d probably watch it occasionally. It’s like the chubby guy at last call — somebody will fuck him, but only at her place. It’s not worth a walk of shame the next morning.”—"NCIS Los Angeles" Review | Pajiba | Scathing Reviews for Bitchy People
Poco fa ho visto condiviso nel news feed di Facebook un gruppo creato da poche ore e chiamato “ALT + F4 per vedere chi visita il tuo profilo”. Ci sono anche le istruzioni: “Nella nuova versione di Facebook basta fare ALT + F4 per scoprire chi ha visitato il tuo profilo. Questo gruppo è per chi non lo sapeva!”. LOL.
Screenwriter, director and producer Roger Avary, 44, was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail and five years’ probation for drunken driving and causing an Ojai accident that took the life of an Italian citizen who was visiting Avary and his wife.
The essay has specialist significance for Beatles enthusiasts thanks to a grammatical error, ringed in red by his English master at Joseph Williams primary school in Belle Vale. Although McCartney may have been wrong to begin two sentences with the conjunction “But”, his capital Bs reveal the same twirly ends later used on the Beatles’ drum skin in 1962 – his contribution to the design.
“HarperCollins Publishers announced Monday that 24-year-old Islip, NY resident Gerard Dillow has accepted its offer of $250,000 to publish his Facebook status from 56 minutes ago, which reads, “In it to win it, suckas.” “We’re confident that In It To Win It, Suckas will be a huge success when it hits stores next summer,” editorial director Edith Dalrymple said of the forthcoming hardcover, which will feature a 140-character forward by Shit My Dad Says author Justin Halpern. “The fact that Gerard’s status already has six ‘likes’ and seven comments—only two of which are from him—tells us this property has a solid built-in audience.” Dillow’s book will be released just two weeks after the film IKEA QUEEN BED FRAME AND BOX SPRING!!!!!!!!!! REDUCED PRICE!!!!!!!, which was optioned from the popular Craigslist post.”—Man’s Facebook Status Given Book Deal | The Onion - America’s Finest News Source (via kmaverick) (via soupsoup)
“How did this happen? Well, I followed a pretty typical trajectory after college, casting about in a general fugue of post-B.A.-in-English angst for a few years, and then settled in New York, where writers have been losing their souls for centuries.”—

In celebration of The Brothers Bloom DVD coming out tomorrow, here is the cocktail menu from the soundtrack party.
(Somebody else made the welcome punch & Penelope’s First Blush so I don’t have the recipe for those. It should be easy to track down how to make a light sangria, and Penelope’s drink is basically a Pina Colada with cranberry juice substituted for Pineapple juice.)
The Curator’s Welcome Punch Champagne peach Sangria Light and crisp; perfect for an evening in Prague
Bloom Martini Hendricks Gin and a splash of dry vermouth Shaken over ice and garnished with a slice of cucumber3 oz. Hendricks Gin Splash of dry vermouth Cucumber slice garnish
Penelope’s First Blush Flushed cheeks and sea breeze, this fresh take on a Piña Colada blends Rum, Coconut and Cranberry - garnished with Asian Pear (Based on Jim Ehrman’s First Blush) 4 T crushed ice 4 T white rum 4 T sweet coconut cream 4 T heavy cream .5 C cranberry juice 1 T pear nectar Blend and serve. Garnish with Asian pear slices.
Stephen’s Marmalade Sour Brazilian sugar cane Cachaça shaken with cut marmalade, cream and egg white Sweet with a smoky kick and a cock-eyed grin(Based on Jamie Boudreau’s Marmalade Sour) 3 oz. Cachaca 1 oz. Lemon Juice 1 oz. Simple Syrup (equal parts sugar and water, mixed until dissolved) 2 dashes Fee’s Orange Bitters 1 egg white 2 T. Orange Marmalade
Bang-Bang Campari, Lemon and Brandy flambé When you’re done with something, blow it up. This is basically a Combustible Edison. 2 oz. Brandy (heated in a pan, but not boiling) 1 oz. Campari 1 oz. Lemon Juice Pour Brandy into chilled cocktail glass and ignite while shaking the campari & lemon mixture seperately. Then pour into flaming Brandy. (You may need to experiment with this one. When you pour in the campari, it should extinguish the brandy after a while, but it may not. It should go without saying, but I’ve heard stories of third-degree burns from someone who tried to drink a flaming cocktail that wasn’t extinguished.)
Diamond Dog A darker version of a White Russian Spiced Rum shaken with Kahlua under a one-eyed float of heavy cream (A variation on Milk & Honey’s “Dominicana”. If you want to do it their way, substitute Caffe Lolita for the Kahlua) 1.5 oz. Kahlua 1.5 oz. Bacardi 8 (or other spiced rum) Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Float heavy cream on top by pouring gently over the back of a bar spoon.
The Perfect Con First developed in New Orleans, this take on the classic Ramos Gin Fizz mixes lemon, lime, and cream to a froth-tipped perfection (The famed Ramos Gin Fizz) 1.5 oz.

Light Cream 1 egg white 1 dash orange flower water 1 oz club soda Combine egg white with gin and juices in a shaker with the metal spring from a standard Hawthorne strainer. Dry shake for at least 1 minute. Then add all otherr ingredients except club soda with ice and continue to shake until freezing cold. Pour into chilled tall thin glass and then top with club soda very slowly.
