The Question sings by gabenut

I can't be in love if it's plastic

Thanks to the miracle of the region-free DVD player, I've been watching something called Snuff Box. Which is sketch comedy, except when it's being a sitcom. With music. And porn. And savage beatings. Also there are hangings, time travel, and whores. It's surreal and dreamlike, though not necessarily a good dream.

(These videos are NSFW, NSF small children, and probably not something you want to play in the house with all the relatives there for Thanksgiving. Unless your relatives are like mine, in which case, turn up the volume.)

Here is a small example of what goes on:

That's Darkplace's Matt Berry as...Matt Berry, utter swine, dick, and fuckhead. He does this sort of thing a lot.

There are also songs, usually variations of this tune:

You've RUINED CHRISTMAS by cybertardis

Dear Danny Butterman: Your movies suck.

Watched Die Hard last night, in preparation for a story I'm theoretically writing. Apart from Alan Rickman's rather delightful scenery chewing (om nom nom), it was a tedious piece of bloated crap. I'm glad I didn't pay theater money to see it back in the day, since it would only have helped to kill my love of movies that much sooner. Also, hi there James Shigeta, you are always awesome.

I did like the bit where Bruce, Alan, and stupid exec are all on the phone, and Bruce is trying to save exec's life and exec is too stupid to figure it out.

I can't help but thinking that if Bruce hadn't been there, the robbers would have stolen their crap, blown up some shit, and left. Much lower body count and less property damage.

Still, a more watchable holiday movie than The Christmas Shoes.

The rules are easy, just post 10 things that recently made you happy! Then tag 10 people and force them to post this meme on their LJs. Because it is good. Everyone needs a little happiness once in a while.

1. Frame clearance at Shopko.
2. Called electric company, got an actual human on the phone. With luck they will come trim my trees, so the trees won't (a) rip out the power cables and (b) scrape on the roof and scare the hell out of me at 3 a.m.
3. Got my Paranoia Agent bag fixed so I don't have to carry a Meijers bag to work.
4. Nearing bottom of laundry pile.
5. That dog that drives by the house twice a day, yelping, with doppler effect.
6. Spore
7. "Well hi there kittyOH MY GOD YOU'RE A POSSUM OH JESUS!"
8. Brass Eye and, consequently, my region-free DVD player.
9. Waving hello to the Asians next door. We have no language in common, so we wave and say HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! As you do. I hope they aren't serial killers.
10. Mashed potatoes. OM NOM NOM.

Not tagging because.
