MySpace is acting up
Ah! Good old LJ!

Yeah, I was going to blog on MySpace, but for some reason the site is not loading.

Crazy weekend!

So much nudity!

Mike's birthday party was a blast. The beachhouse is always a good time....and this will more than likely be the last party there(cops where called...fuck the O.B. neighbors. This year wasn't as loud as past years).

I didn't get to bed until 7 in the morning.

what else?

My mom and Drew took me out to Ruby Tuesdays. And she got me a buttload of Hulk comics from a tagsale. It was kind of random, but kind of neat.

then I was pretty much passed out for the rest of the day.

Holy weekend

Sucker for a pretty face.
So I got stood up to see "A Scanner Darkly" and I was very very angry about that. SO I wrote a very very mean livejournal entry...then earased it because it was too mean and I didn't mean everything I said.

I just hate being stood up.

BUT the girl called me back and wants to take me out to dinner. And we are going to Mike's birthday party together.

Yah!

PLUS I totally redeemed myself for bombing on stage last week! Yah!

I have a mad happy going on.

Current Mood: chipper

You know, since Funtown my week has not been going right at all. AT ALL.

Is it a Karma thing? What the hell did I do?

Man, I need some love =-(

From my MySpace Blog
Top 20 favorite Villians

Hi all.

And by all...people I assume read this blog....like, three of you.

Anyway. Because I love list here are my favorite Top 20 Villians (It was Ten before) of all time. Feel free to add to the list.

20. Wicked Witch of the West (Wizard of Oz)

The Wizard of Oz was a yearly event when I was going up (CBS played it once a year for those who don't remember) and the Witch scared me from ages 4 to 8.
Now I think she's kind of silly (I mean, if water kills you why in sweet fuck would you leave a bucket of it laying around) But there was a time when the idea of a green woman is a castle watching your every move was very real.

19. Nurse Ratched (One flew over the cockoo's nest)

A direct decendant of the Wicked Witch, Nurse Ratched is a bitch from hell. Total Control freak who's manipulation leads to the suicide of one of her own patients. Using guilt and rigging the rules so you can never win. She's like my mom if she where evil (which she is not)

18. The Gimp and Friends (Pulp Fiction)

A tad homophobic entry, and one of the weirdiest scenes in movie history. That's a nightmare though, waking up with a jock strap in your mouth to "Bring out the gimp".

17.Mr. Burns (The Simpsons)

Remember kids, Old=Evil. He was at his evil peak during the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" Episodes, but the coat made of puppies is my favorite act of villiany.

16. Headless Horseman (Legend of Sleepy Hollow)
Another childhood nightmare of mine, but damn if he's not cool. He has a flaming pumkin for a head!

Perhaps my next list should be "Top 20 Childhood fears.

15.Sepheroth (Final Fantasy 7)
The only videogame entry (sorry Koopa) But seeing as Final Fantasy 7 was the videogame that brought me back into vidoegames and the final fight sequence is one of the best ever, he gets a spot. That, and he's a badass.

14. Marvin the Marsian (Bugs Bunny Cartoons)
Elemer Fudd is not a threat. Yosamidi Sam is not a threat. Marvin is a threat. All he wants to do is blow up earth. Good thing we have a rabbit out there to save out collective asses.

13. Magneto (X-men)
The Malcolm X of Comic Books. He's cool in the movies, but in the comics he's brought the world to it's knees on more than one occasion all in the name of mutant freedom.

My favorite moment? When he ripped out Wolverine's antimantim through his pours.

12. Trevor Goodchild (Aeon Flux)

If she represents anarchy and freedom he is order and control. SO much cooler in the cartoon than in the movie, he's Doctor Doom with a labido.
No, seriously, I hated that movie. Why was Trevor such a nice guy? He's so much better as a brillaint egomaniac who's only weakness Flux, the woman out to destroy him.

11. Colonel Walter E. Kurtz (Apocalypes Now)
This guy is pretty much the Joker in Vietnam. One of Marlon Brando's best characters he turned an all ready awesome movie into one of the greatest war movies of all time.

10. The Lizard (Spider-man Comics)
And now we come to my favorite comic book villian. For those of you who don't know the Lizard is Curt Connors, a mild mannered scientest trying to regrow an arm he lost in the war, but in doing so transformed himself into a seven foot tall intelligent Lizard. Because he's a good man trapped inside Spider-man has to put on kid gloves fighting him, but how do you do that against a creature trying to eat your face off?

Really want him to be in Spider-man 4


9. Gollum (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings)
An addict to the core, Gollum is reviled, pittyed, and feared. His mind so fryed from the ring he will do anything, like feed you to a giant spider, to get it back. I think what makes him so great is there is a part of you that really really wants him to get better.

8. Samara (The Ring)
Holy Shit are little girls creepy. The Ring is one of the only movies to creep me out so much I couldn't sleep. The sequel is a waste of time, but when she calls out of the TV....Damn.

7. Emperor Palpatine (The Star War series)

Man, the Sith are evil Bastards. Killing Jedi, ruling the galaxy with an iorn fist. Zapping your emplyee's son because he refused to kill his dad. Crusing rebellions. This guy is a jerk!

If you see the prequels as how the Emperor rose to power they are all not that bad.

6. HAL (2001: A Space Odyssey)
Imagine trying to reason with a toaster. Now imagaine that toaster is out to kill you. That's HAL. And while he might just be a peice of machinery he has one of the most haunting death scenes in cinimatic history.

"I'm scared Dave. I'm scared"

5. Arvin Sloan (Alias)
My favorite character on Alias Sloan was such a cool and manipulative S.O.B, even if you hate him you have to give him props. His motivation is not greed or power, but something greater, and he is willing to do anything and sacrifice anyone to get to that goal.

4. Iago (Othello)
Old schooling it now. Iago is still one of the best two-faced bastards out there. His heart is filled with hate, but he has a smile on his face just for you. Watch him exploit the darkest side of human nature with surgon-like persision. And what is his motivation? One can only guess.

3. The Borg (Star Trek: Next Generation)
Great concept. Outer-space Zombies. AND another childhood fear! I remember watching Star Trek as a kid and thinking "There is no way to defeat these things!"

2. Noah Cross (ChinaTown)
With a list filled with mostly monsters and fantasy characters it's an all too human evil that takes the number two spot. Noah Cross might possibly be the most evil man in cinematic history. I don't want to give away what he does exactly to those who haven't seen ChinaTown (one of the Best Movies Ever!) but let's just say he's evil. And has one of the best exchanges too!

Jake Gittes: I just want to know what you're worth. Over ten million?
Noah Cross: Oh my, yes.
Jake Gittes: Why are you doing it? How much better can you eat? What can you buy that you can't already afford?
Noah Cross: The future, Mr. Gitts, the future.

1. Nazis (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
Man I hate Nazis, but they are movies best villains at lest on a pulp level. In real life what they did to this world and the millions left dead should never be forgoten, but our culture has them also has them as the "It" villians.

Want your villiant to be really bad? Make him a Nazi.
You want to make your hero look good? Pit him against Nazis.

That's why when you watch them all explode at the end of Raiders you think "Good"

Goose Stepping Jackasses.

Man, I hate Nazis.

What do you think sirs?

Wow......bitch
Ok, about a month ago I pissed a girl off because.....she was pissing me off (go figure). She said I didn't respect her because she was 19 and female (not true...she was just seriously pissing me off at the time)SO as petty revenge when she's drunk she likes to call me on my friend Liz's phone really late.

The first time it happened I didn't think much of it. The second time it happen she called at 2:30 in the morning (I didn't pick up). And tonight she called at 12:30, waking me up.


So...why should I respect her?

And her only real reason....only real motivation....is she's 19 and female.

Bravo.

IOU Superman Returns review
Man...I just retreved my phone from shaws after about half an hour of going crazy looking for it.

Stand up went very well...awesome if I may be so bold...on Wendseday night.

Holly even left me a nice comment on MySpace =-D

I did see Superman Returns and I do have an oppinion, I just don't feel like typing it out. There where things I loved about the movie and there where things I didn't care for. I'd see it again, or perhaps buy it on DvD.

I'll just say this. Kevin Spacy's Lex Luther is freaking hystarical. NOW SHOULD Lex Luther be hystarical is the question. I guess I prefer the manipulative billionaire geinous from the Spuerman cartoons and comics...but Spacy Lex has his charm.

Pointless Update
Most of the people on my friends list are saying they are going to abandon livejournal. Is it the lure of MySpace.

I am starting to enjoy myspace more. I'd still like to do more with it,like post my stand-up bits, have some pic of me on stage...so on.

Hung out with Megan Curry last night. She's living in Portland. That was fun.

Had underaged friends call me at 12:30 to buy wine for them. I didn't, I was all ready in bed. For some reason I wasn't pissed, just kind of out of it.

So myspace has been usefull in getting ahold of people who I went to High School with. I lost touch with alot of people, so that's neat.

Comedy show tomorrow. New Material. Hope to see you there

26
Well, I must say that last night was one of the funner birthday experiances I've had in a long time.

And it started out pretty crappy too.

I got into a verbal fight with someone the night before over dumb shit, so that put me in a bad mood, I have no car so I walk everywhere and it's been raining, the guy who was going to pick me up some weed was busted for possession, and I ended up loosing my beard because I screwed up shaving.

But the party itself was magical. No ne really "shocked their momma" but that's ok. Met some cool new people and some people who I didn't think where going to make it showed up as well.

Oh, and I got a new tattoo. Pictures will be avaible when I pick up my camera (I left it at the party). It's on my chest, so it'll be easier the photograph (unlike the one on my back)

The spiritual and the material
The material world:

My car is going to cost me 890$ to repair. I have no choice but to get it fixed. Being without a car for the last two days has sucked.

The Spiritual world:
Well, it's less spiritual and more of a sensation I can't explain.

This afternoon I was laying in bed reading a book about Samaritan myths. I started to fall asleep, as I usually do when I am reading in bed. I ended up in the state where you are both awake and dreaming. There was a point where it felt like I was extremely high, but I haven't smoked for about a week now. Then my consiousness exploded. I didn't know what was going on. I became everything. One with the universe. All reality.

Then I woke up when the thunder went off like a shotgun.

It's not the strangest dream I've had....hunting a killer in the Subways of Lewiston that turns out to be an Emu wins that game. But it was the strangest sensation within a dream I've had.

stupid upcoming birthday
It's 2:30

I have to be up at 7:30 to be at work at 8

Ever start thinking about stuff, then make yourself so upset that you can't sleep? Well, I just did.

I don't know what it was that triggered it. The myspace thing? That's a stupid trigger. I don't know but I'm just really upset.

I'm going to be 26. I'm four years away from 30. I have basicly lived my life to make sure I don't share my father's fate. Divorced and broken from a back-breaking job. And what have I got to show for it?

I'm three years olded than the age he had me.

I should have been fucking married by now. Right?

This is stupid stuff, but it's 2:30 in the morning and this is what's on my mind.
12:05 am
Myspace
So I've been flirting with Myspace recently.

I don't think I'm getting it.

So far only one person wanted to be my friend and that was some girl called "Spoogie". When I saw her photo she had a mouth full of.....ew.

That and the freaking porn mail. And the fact that for some reason I can't take a photo of myself that doesn't make my forhead look huge. That and all the single girls (at least in the portland area) either look like the could eat me alive or obviously have porn star pics up.

yeah....MySpace MySucks.

X-men: The Last Stand
I saw this yesterday, unable to wait for Leanne and Seth (and I was bored). So here is my review...

I will see it a second time.

I actually really liked it, which I'm surprised about considering earlier reviews I've read.Then again I had faith in Retter, who directed "Rush Hour" and "Family Man" BUT he also directed "Red Dragon" which I thought was a decent movie (Better than Hannibal anyways).

But, evendently I'm a Marvel Movie Slut. The only Marvel Movie I haven't seen is Electra, and I'll more than likely like that too.

So "X-men:the last stand" isn't perfect. I have issues with a few thing. One they changed the music. It's not a cool as the first two movies. Second is the pacing. While the first two movies juggled a large cast beatifuly ('specially X-2) There is a feeling that there is something missing from these characters. Angel suffers the most from this, he's a key character (His father invented the cure)but you never really get to know him.
While I'm not a fan of movies that don't know when to end, this movie could have been longer.

Also no sweet Wolverine one-on-one fight. But he's going to be getting his own movie, so it's all good.

That said the premise is sweetly complex. Instead of genocide mutant have to face a "cure", a drug that surpresses the mutant gene. So it's a moral choise. Do you become like everyone else and fit into society or do you stay who you are?

All in all it was a fitting end to the trilogy (they say this is the last one, but we'll see how this one does at the box office)
