Movie Nights and Game Nights
Last week we watched Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and American Beauty. The latter, which I brought and forced johnstevensaul to watch, remains one of my favorite movies of all time. The former I had heard plenty about over the years, but had not seen before. Between that and Bedrooms and Hallways from the previous week, I'm going to have a hard time watching any Matrix or LotR movies and taking a certain actor seriously. Agent Elrond tying up young men and dancing in Abba. Yeah. Beyond that, it was worth seeing. Not an amazing movie, but a cultural reference point that's been jabbed into my side hundreds of times over my life.

Game Night was fun, as willthestud graced us with his company. We played Scattergories, which was fun. runstaverun and our guest BeyBladed it up, and we played some Xbox. Once more, I had way too much sushi on sale. I also managed to prove what a lightweight I was when it came to drinking. It was a good night, and it was cool to have willthestud there. He seemed like a good human being.

This week, lesbian night, we watched Kissing Jessica Stein and Bar Girls. Unfortunately, I didn't know about Movie Night being moved from Wednesday to Tuesday until after I had made plans for the evening. Seriously, with everything else going on that night, how was I supposed to remember that? But I managed to delay my plans so I could make at least one movie. Kissing Jessica Stein was quite well done, with the kind of ending that would make fmrflyboy upset, just like the movie johnstevensaul and I were afraid it was going to turn into on the rooftop scene. I'm sure aaronkliger and hiphopatcong remember fmrflyboy's violent reaction to the end of that movie. I left after a third of Bar Girls, and what I did see seemed quite amusing.

And tonight, as I said, is Game Night with a possible visitor.

oh man...

bar girls is just fucking funny...but some nice sex if i remember accurately...ha, IF...i think i DO in fact remember...

anyways, you should watch "better than chocolate" and "but i'm a cheerleader" for better quality lesbian flicks. just my suggestions. :-)

Re: oh man...

We saw But I'm a Cheerleader and I think All Over the Guy one earlier night. I think I posted about it, but I guess I forgot to.

You should come to John Saul's gay movie night some time.

Re: oh man...

But I'm a cheerleader was great. I also very much liked Kising Jessica Stein. I did not like Bar Girls so much. Maybe if I had seen it when it was newer...probably not though.
Boys Don't Cry was also a good, but more serious movie about sexual identity

upon clicking on the beyblades website and reading about the first beyblades uk championship going on, i really got to thinking... are there people out there who are really that bored?

It gets worse...

Even worse. A fucking Playstation game exists for BeyBlade. The review I read went on about how boring the thing was, watching the tops spin. Supposedly you can control the tops a bit while they're spinning, but they just take your movements as suggestions rather than following them. The review was quite understandably harsh. That game sounded more boring than most fishing games I've seen.

redeem your opinion of Hugo Weaving

see Proof, also starring a very pre-Russell Crowe Russell Crowe, and The Interview.

Re: redeem your opinion of Hugo Weaving

Have not seen either one, both look quite interesting from what I can see online. I should try to fit one in before May 15th.
