As i have the lowest form of cable, the only movie channel i have is movieplex. They play almost exclusively awful, bush league movies starring famous people before they were famous or as they were falling from grace. Yesterday, i watched not one but two of these films back to back. They were a time capsule into a simpler time, when sight gags and saxophones were not only totally cool but mandatory. Of course i'm talking about the 1980s. The first film was Who's Harry Crumb? starring a terrifyingly ginger John Candy. Then we watched the Alan Alda triple threat Sweet Liberty. Between these two movies i've never heard so much popping and snapping of slap bass. Although far from perfect, i believe these two movies are certainly worth your time on a lazy sunday, for a few laughs, several groans, loads of 80s nostalgia and Michael Cain being Michael Cain.
Anywho, how about that quiz, eh? i was subbing for Nick as he roamed the streets of Los Angeles like a mad dog, in a birthday-fueled fugue state. Although according to the winning team of the night, his mom was here and she more than made up for his absence.
I feel as though i truly arrived as a quizmaster last night when i realized that i had developed a blister from sharpening so many pencils. i imagine this blister will wither and harden and become a true Geeks Who Drink Pencil Sharpening Callous, which will be impervious not only to the the slings and barbs of willful quizzers, but also gunfire, tequila and the proselytization of jehovah's witnesses. Or so i can dream.
Congrats to Nick Isn't Here But His Mom Is And She's Fucking Everyone and Fetish Porn With Friends for the top two spots. Obama Gave Me A Clint Eastwood Infection certainly deserves praise as well, with only one point between them and 2nd place.
Well, gods bless you all on this Labor Day. I believe i'm being coerced into going on a hike. I probably won't survive so.... it's been real.
