Found myself watching Inside Man over the weekend for like the 12th time. Good movie. Not great.
What is great about it though is Jodie Foster. Even aged, give her a nice business suit, straightened hair and heavy makeup and she looks like a girl that causes a spike in Viagra sales. She is waaay hot in it and makes you want to be in a situation where she needs to bribe you or buy you off.
[Tangent] If I were a cop I'd absolutely be dirty. Not in a Training Day or Bad Lieutenant kind of way where people get hurt. But I'd surely take bribes and use my power to my advantage.
Jodie Foster in Inside Man: My client needs you and your boys to back off. Officer Zach, there must be some way we can work this out.
Officer Zach: I think we can arrange something.
(Porn music begins playing)
I think this all comes down to the fact that my life would be much more exciting if it were a constant porno.[/Tangent]
So Jodie Foster is totally non-stop in Inside Man. I would do things to her that you couldn't watch on the big screen coming soon to a theater near you.
But look at her in Contact. YIKES! She's like a good Scotch or wine or one of those other things that betters with age.
Young, makeup-less Jodie Foster from Contact = Four Long Islands.
Older, sexy, porno-style Jodie Foster from Inside Man = Zero Long Islands.
I found myself watching some of that Illinois-Michigan State game Sunday. It was a good thing I watched it, too, because I needed to be reminded how much I fucking hate the Big 10.
It was like a tie game with seven minutes to play and for the next five minutes, there was one combined point scored, eight fouls and seventy-six timeouts.
Watching the Big 10 is like the equivalent of a nice cup of chamomile tea before bed.
Was at '80s night over the weekend at a bar and for a while the DJ was just peeling off the hits! This, naturally, got me thinking about the most horrible/horribly-great songs you hear at a bar or club and get overly excited for.
5. Like A Virgin - Madonna
4. Red Red Wine - UB40
3. Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard
2. Yeah - Usher
1. Livin' On A Prayer - Bon Jovi
Yours in the comments, please.
Big pet peeve of mine during the college sports season: stories about the new rankings without a list of the fucking rankings accompanying it! Much like this one here.
I don't need 450 words explaining that UConn moved ahead of Pitt when 25 will suffice.
Great time to get to the movie theater. Coming in at No. 1 last week was Tyler Perry Makes More Cliché Black Jokes followed by Three Gay Teenagers in 3D.
If you could be a professional or college athlete for a day, who would it be?
LeBron for the pure talent?
Brady to fuck Gisele?
Jeter to bang anything with two legs and a pulse?
I might go with Yao Ming. It'd be cool to be that tall for a day. And I've always wondered what it's like to be Chinese.
Or maybe Horace Grant. You know those goggles had x-ray vision.
Your rationale in the comments.
What TV shows are you watching?
I certainly tuned in to the two-hour 24 "event" last night. That show's gone downhill, but it's still worth a weekly viewing.
Lost on the other hand is better than sex. I am more addicted to that show than I am to porn and I fucking love porn.
I will talk Lost with people who have never seen the show like they were watching with me.
Me: Ben killed Locke!! Ben's all fucked up! Who are these new islanders???OMG!!! LOL!!! LMAO!!!! RARRRWW!!!k;akjd[ka!
Coworker: I've never seen the show before, but I've heard good things.
Me (shaking coworker): Jin's alive!! Is he in the 70s?!?!? Why was Hurley and Sayid on the plane!?!?
Coworker: Please don't make me press charges.
After a Wednesday episode, my workday on Thursday is as unproductive as the first day of March Madness. I read all the recaps, message boards...I'M FUCKING ADDICTED!!!
Great post by Alex (a former colleague of mine) at Seattle Sportsnet who list the sports fans we love to hate.
My favorite (or least favorite, I suppose) is The Guy Who Knows Everything, But Doesn’t Know Anything.
That guy is very prevalent at college games and usually wears a backwards hat.
