Accidental Projectiles

  • I keep checking my high school class reunion web site. To see who's updated. And what they're doing. And where they live. And who they sleep with. And it's driving me crazy because I shouldn't give a damn but I have this wicked-nasty case of morbid curiosity that I just can't satisfy by checking once a week. I have to check every. single. day. GAH!
  • Why can't Hollywood make more movies like The Nun's Story? With a classic actress who isn't in the film to show her tits or ass and act like a complete airhead to whatever hunky actor the studio hired to play opposite her? And why can't the movie-going public appreciate said movies? I mean, this story is awesome. It's a woman who joins a cloistered convent to become a nurse in the Belgian Congo and she wants to be a nurse but to do so she has to be a nun and there's all this inner spiritual turmoil. But for audiences to appreciate a re-make of this movie in today's world, the nuns would have to wear black bikinis, carry around crucifix-shaped crossbows, use their iPhones for confession, with nun-priest sex every ten minutes, and crap blowing up with bodies everywhere and that just makes me sad.
  • And speaking of Hollyweird, can I get somebody to back an All Planet of the Apes, All the Time channel with me? Please? Because there's something oddly soothing about Roddy McDowall in full chimp makeup. Well, that and Charlton Heston in a loincloth.
  • Can I just get an amen that Google Earth may have captured evidence of the Loch Ness monster? Thank you.

I like your thinking with the movies.

And I won't dispute that it could be Nessie, until someone proves otherwise. But that doesn't mean I won't wonder if it's a big pile of conveniently shaped garbage either. I mean, Nessie is a shy thing!

I've never seen The Nun's Story, but I'm going to find it! I totally agree on the movie thing - and it carries over into all areas of life now, it seems. Nobody's happy unless things are BIG and COMPUTER GENERATED. Ugh. Not to say I don't enjoy my iPhone and satellite TV, but ugh.

Movies are ridiculous anymore.
That is TOTALLY The Loch Ness Monster! Wow! ;)

Avitable said...

That's totally just a reflection, I'm sure.

I Google people all of the time...from high school, that I've dated, from college, that I've slept with. So uh yeah, my morbid curiosity runs deep too. :)

Agree re: movies nowadays are poop or bad remakes (which are worse than poop). Not that I know, being a dad and all.

Ren said...

Wait, so nuns in bikinis bad, but astronauts in loin cloths good? OK, got it. :-)

I have that stalkerish check-in going on with A Free Man right now. Dr. O'C better drop that kid so I can get back to my regularly schedule programming. :)

Patois said...

Amen, you whack job!

Joe said...

Oh Lord... are you one of the people that refuses to believe that Nessie was actually an elephant? ;)

A Free Man said...

Is your reunion this year? Are you going? I didn't. Couldn't really imagine anything that I wanted to do less.

I agree with your stance on movies. I will check out that movie when I get back in Blockbusters favour (damn Matt renting movies and hiding them from me so they are UBER LATE) lol
