  jesus, shit....

This is Sean fucking following every word of the itinerary!!! "Crowd surfing on a boogie board through the audience at the Laneway Fest". Fuck!!!!

Also here is a vid of a second attempt at the "lowest crowdsurf ever" from one of the Still Flyin' OZ club shows. Place goes fucking buck ass wild when it kicks back in. Damn, so awesome.
 
  The Signal

Damn good. Go see it. I really liked it on a whole - going into it I figured I would like it just not this much. It was seperated into 3 "transmissions" one of each was directed by a different dude. Our boy Jacob Gentry directed the middle transmission which is by far the best part of the movie. Not just saying that cause we're hs bros with the dude - his shit was not only the comic relief of the movie but the camera shots and story movement was most developed in this second section. On a whole the movie is about 15 minutes too long, but thats really my only complaint. It looks fantastic, you never really get bored mainly b/c the story keeps evolving and shifting well, but the end is a little drawn out. Scott Poythress - the character Clark - is someone you latch on to and hope he makes the entire movie. In other stuff I've seen him in - Scott typically plays the overly funny dude, and here he does so and it doesnt seemed forced or cheesy. By the way, yes, Scott is that dude in the Texas Pete commercial where the dude is sitting in front of the fridge in the middle of the night eating fried chicken. Anyways - other than the length - this movie has a lot to offer. Funny, freaky, zesty, bloody, mind fucking, spooky, lurky, jammin. Besides it being a wee bit too long and some over the top verbose character language, this movie is really damn awesome. Fine work from Mr. Gentry.

A-
 
  Papi should pursue diplomacy when his playing days are over.



He can definitely look the part when needed.

  FRANCEVERSARY / Twilight Delirium 9!!!!!

Ok dudes, wanted to get a post up about this as plans are neatly coming together for this bash to end all fucking bashes. The France really turned 10 back in October of last year but we decided to wait until the Delirium this year to truly host our 10 year bday party. 10 fucking years, wild. What will even be wilder than that wild, a more wild party choc' full of a wild 2 day party. Mark you calendars, your ass is expected to be there...

TWILIGHT DELIRIUM 9 / FRANCE 10 YEARS AND BEYOND JAM
Saturday April 26, 2008
40 Watt Club

Je Suis France (full 9 dude jam)
The Buddy System
The Royal Bangs
+ DJ Elliott is going to jam a dance party before and after every band.

Going to be an incredible weekend. To coinside with the jam, the France is also releasing a legit EP (way more legit than our other ones) the night of the Delirium. Its called DEATH WISH and is a concept ep which will melt your brain until you die. Every band member (all 9) is contributing a song to weave a tale so fantastical, it won't fully be understood until a good 20 years from now. Also there's talk of lazers. We're bringing the big guns this time, trust us. BE THERE! PLEASE?
 
  seeing Jacob's movie will get you stabbed.

Out in California some dude stabbed some folks in a theater showing The Signal, that movie co-directed by Jacob Gentry. This stabbing guy is one thing about California that does not, in fact, rule.

Has anybody seen The Signal, by the way?

  movies I saw this weekend

MILDRED PIERCE: I didn't expect it to be so damn melodramatic. It was disappointing to see how passive and gullible Crawford's character was, as I was expecting her to be a blistering, ball-obliterating hellcat. Almost sort of hilarious, but completely unintentionally.

BE KIND REWIND: It's okay. It would be nice to live in a world without cynicism, and where a highly varied community really could be united through "art". Although extremely cheesy and unrealistic, I still found it rather touching, and knowing that I would completely mock and shit over such a situation in real life depressed me. The clips of their remakes are awesome, but Mos Def and Jack Black are both annoying in their own ways. So, again, it's okay.

THERE WILL BE BLOOD: Probably should've won last night?

  RIP Steve Gerber

Steve Gerber died yesterday, in a hospital in Las Vegas. He wrote some of the best and most idiosyncratic comics of the last 30 or so years. He came to fame working for Marvel in the '70's, writing the definitive takes on Man-Thing and The Defenders, and coming up with his best-known creation, Howard the Duck. A legal battle over the rights to Howard ended his first tenure at Marvel, but was a vital step towards gaining recognition and financial restitution for comic book creators. He did some comics work for DC, Marvel, and various independent publishers in the '80's and '90's, but spent most of his time working in television, both for cartoons like Thundarr the Barbarian, GI Joe, and Dungeon & Dragons, and an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Gerber's profile has risen somewhat of late, as respected novelist Jonathan Lethem has revamped Gerber's Omega the Unknown book for Marvel, along with a recent Howard mini-series and Gerber's own work on Dr. Fate for DC. Still, his fantastic '70's work for Marvel is his best-remembered, and mandatory reading for anybody interested in mainstream American comics.

UPDATE: Obituaries from Mark Evanier, Gail Simone, Dan Slott, Tom Spurgeon...
 
  Scorsese To Make Bob Marley Documentary

Filmmaker Martin Scorsese is lining up another documentary about a music legend - the Oscar winner has announced plans to make a movie about Bob Marley.

Now the director has signed up to shoot a documentary on reggae legend Marley, who died of cancer in 1981 at the age of 36.

Marley's son Ziggy Marley will act as executive producer on the currently-untitled film, which is set for release on February 6, 2010, the 65th anniversary of the star's birth.

  Chipper Jones on romance:

from Dave O'Brien's Braves blog at the AJC:

By U Kno Who (Chipper Jones)

Girls like the romance. Whatever u do, it better be original. Flowers and candy are nice, but every woman loves the bling. At least that’s what I’ve experienced. But what do I know, I haven’t had the best luck with the ladies.
 
  Dawgs, JAMMIN!

Yesterday was NATIONAL SIGNING DAY for college football and the Dawgs cleaned up. Read about it here (with draft grades). Bama was the surprise of the SEC and also blew up with one of the best drafts in the nation. Thats not going to help them come September 27th when they come rolling into Athens. Get stomped 2 years in a row, bitch.

Probably the biggest name on the Dawgs' draft card was AJ Green. This dude is supposed to be the next coming of Randy Moss. You tube highlight reels, here, here, and here (the proof he's legit). Get used to hearing Larry call Stafford to Green!

The next two years are going to be fucking fun to watch yallz.

  This song is great!

this band still feels like a one hit wonder tho.
 
  one thing I can't understand:

how ANYBODY could vote for Clinton over Obama.

Well, I can think of one reason why, but I seriously doubt there are that many racists voting in the Democratic primaries.

I know we have at least one pro-Clinton commenter. Please explain why the uncharismatic, unengaging, severely divisive senator (from a state she had never previously lived in), who has done nothing especially notable in her seven years in office (other than voting for the resolution that led to the war), should win the nomination over her dynamic and exciting opponent.

Compare Clinton's speech last night to Barack Obama's. One is lifeless and a bit smug, and would seem robotic even without the feedback from the PA. The other is passionate and genuinely moving.

So, why should anybody vote for Clinton? They don't seem too far off on the issues, and Obama destroys her when it comes to likability. Unless you're afraid America is still too racist to vote for a black candidate, why would you think Clinton has a better shot of beating McCain (or whoever)?

  Obama votes for himself

Senator Barack Obama cast his vote in his hometown of Hyde Park, IL today, quipping: “It was close but in the end I went for Obama.”
 
  Provisional Ballot

I've talked to over a handful of people today who said they were not going to vote b/c they were either not registered or their license didn't match their voting records. YOU PEOPLE CAN STILL VOTE TODAY. Its called a provisional ballot. Everyone has the right to vote, no matter what. Don't be a lazy ass, get out there!

-If you are registered to vote, but your name does not appear on the voter list or you do not have the required form of photo ID, you still have the right to vote by using a provisional ballot. If this happens to you, you should ask the poll worker for a provisional ballot.

-If anyone challenges your right to vote, you have the right to vote by provisional ballot.

  answer by noon today

Okay, I'm going to see a movie when I get off work at noon, but I can't decide which one. It would definitely be There Will Be Blood, but I didn't sleep much last night and probably won't be able to stay awake through that one. The other option is Cloverfield, which is really short, but I was slightly hungover when I woke up so perhaps the hand-held puking movie isn't a good idea. Thoughts? Any of you seen both?
 
  lost shiz

What did you guys think?
I am mixed on this first ep. I thought it was good but I am really starting to hate the future and I am fairly certain that all the flashes this season are going to be flash forwards. That seems obvious. Lots up in the air of course, but one thing that I am confused on is Locke knowing about Charlie. Are we assuming that the time lapse b/w when Locke finds Hurley and when they are sitting on that log chatting that Hurley caught him up to speed? Also did the island heal Locke again?

I read somewhere a really crazy theory. Dont read this if you dont want to but someone has said that it was Ben in the coffin. And Jack is so devastated b/c Ben was his only way back to the island. Long shot but interesting theory (it is a short coffin!).

Also found 2 screen shots from last night's ep.

#1 is a shot of "Jacob" when Hurley stumbles across the vision cabin, look familiar???:
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pCf3crWy9yU/R6Mv2KMS-DI/AAAAAAAAAUI/M5Db5ozoqF4/s320/jacob-jacksdad.jpg

Second one is the second before the glass breaks in the police interrogation room:
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pCf3crWy9yU/R6MwMKMS-EI/AAAAAAAAAUQ/p89YLDBlGLA/s320/charlie.jpg

Seems like Locke and Jack may have flipped roles on the whole Science/Faith thing last night too upon the split at the end. Locke knew that people were coming to the island that shouldnt be, and Jack has the faith that he is meant to get off the island.

Anywone stay up for the "Oceanic Commercial" in Eli Rothwhatever? I saw it and it was a fake commercial with some sort of pirate communication breaking in over it with a dude saying "DONT TRUST THESE PEOPLE, OCEANIC FLIGHT 815, WE FOUND IT" and gave a website which changed. Here is the commercial:

Here are BOTH websites:
Flyoceanicair.com
HIDDEN ONE:Find815.com

Crazy shit.
