I'm not even supposed to be here today! Mmmrph! Blurph mmmngh!
noelr's new quiz has my co-workers laughing already.

Saw Vulgar last night, thanks to my two roomies. Nothing like a little clown rape while updating the froshling image due to a minor error. While I enjoyed the movie, I wouldn't recommend it. I'm quite a fanboy, who would rave about Kevin Smith's latest bowel movement if he slapped it on the silver screen. The hue! The texture! Magnificent!

Not to say that Vulgar is a piece of crap, but I'll admit that I've got the fanboy worship, strong stomach, and taste for sick things going for me in this case. Lock the kids up before watching it, and don't eat before.

In other news, I enjoy Utz fat-free pretzels. At certain moments, eating them while drinking ShopRite Cola is a portal to a happier place.

Feeling: cynical cynical
Listening to: Fear Factory, Byte Block

all you need is utz

"I'm quite a fanboy, who would rave about Kevin Smith's latest bowel movement if he slapped it on the silver screen. The hue! The texture! Magnificent!"

Well, you know what they say, about how recognizing there's a problem is the first step towards solving it. Seriously though, I've never heard a Kevin Smith devotee (and make no mistake, that's what they all are) so frank about their non-objectivity before. Interestingly, you use almost exactly the same language I do when discussing Viewaskewites. (I would have said "those bozos are so devoted that if Smith took a crap in a film can they'd call it genius.) Strangely, the more movies he makes, the sharper the divide between the Kevin Smith fanbase and the rest of the world becomes, kinda like the class triangle in Brazil. Is that why they call him a "cult" director?

We're up on the second level through the hippy banners

I actually stole the phrase from the Rockaway EB general manager. He said that during the holiday season he could take a crap in a bag and it would sell. I responded that if he labelled it Pokemon, people would beg for more.

I don't know about the Kevin Smith gap though. For low-budget just about direct to video flicks like Vulgar where he was merely producer, sure. But larger films like Dogma and JASBSB, I think the opposite is occuring. Well, maybe not for the last one.

Re: We're up on the second level through the hippy banners

Who liked JASBSB except the true believers? I don't know, since I've sworn not to see any more Kevin Smith films until I get a check from him for 8 bucks as compensation for paying money on Dogma.

Read the scripture, son!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention in my post, there also was a ``Defense of Dogma'' piece on the Vulgar DVD. Great interviews with the cast, crew, and Catholics.

I loved Dogma. I can understand why someone who isn't versed in the doctrine might not be as into it.

I did

Russ, despite being kicked out of a Catholic high school, in general I know more of Catholic doctrine than most Cathoics. I just didn't like Dogma because I thought it was stupid. Making an "edgy and irreverent" comedy about Catholicism isn't good enough... I'd like it to be funny too. Maybe that's my unfair expectations, but there it is.

Re: I did

True, I wasn't intending to slam your short time at a Papist educational facility, sorry if it came across that way. Eh, I thought it was funny and decent drama at the same time. But I have no taste, and loved The Prophecy. Well.... at least the first one.
