America, america is killing its youth.

~ So apparently Britney Spears actually did shave her head. I may be kind of in love with her now.

~ Pins of Light was canceled, as far as hosting went, this week due to the refitting of the CHLY studio. Which sucked because Stephen found, under a library table or something, this insane dude from Duncan who claims to have found scriptural evidence that manna from heaven is a metaphor for magic mushrooms or something. Anyway, Stephen interviewed him and that’ll be played on next week’s show.

~ So Instead of radio chaos, Kai and I went to Ghost Rider. There were some classic Nick Cage weirdness moments that were pure gold and whole lot of straight-to-video feel as well — but not in any kind of cheesy B-movie goodness way. Also, though it was “cool” to have Peter Fonda in there for some kind of ironic purpose, a good Satan he does not make. He’s like the retired banker of movie devils. He seemed more like he was making business deals on the 9th green than binding peoples’ souls for eternity. I guess it’s all in a day’s work when you’re the prince of darkness. Or prince of a slightly overcast afternoon, at least.

~ Yesterday, since the sun actually came out when I wasn’t at work, I went for a nice walk along the seawall. They seem to have decided there was too much nature along the seawall because they tore out all the blackberry bushes and plants on the hill. So now there is brown desolation where there once was green chaos.

~ Deep Purple In Rock is really good.

  1. Hey, you want some jellies?

    i’ll just pull this magic eightball out of nowhere to make this decision.

  4. I couldn’t remember why the Blackheart villain (who I’ve heard referred to as ‘hot topic vampire’) looked so familiar. Then I realized he was the guy from American Beauty. The one who just loved plastic bags. This only compounds the poor casting choices.

    Yeah, he lacked a certain menace required for the antichrist.

    Ghost Rider really needed a Ghost Writer, haw-haw-haw-haw!

    “I am Legion, for we are many!” WTF?!?!?!?!

  8. mrdapper says:

    Well, that is a quotation. Probably the only good writing (aside from “Want some jellies?) in the film. Though the emphasis on the word “many” was laughable.

    They should really find someething more recent than the bible to bw quoting.

  10. mrdapper says:

    Subtracting biblical references would really have reduced the word count of that script.

  11. horribly fantastic

    i don’t know what you are talking about. Ghost Rider was awesome.
    (also, wasn’t “black heart” the villan from care bears?? AWESOME.)

    i didn’t say it wasn’t awesome.

    Sounds to me like poor Brit was drugged and raped and is shaving her head to a) symbolically cleanse herself and start anew, and b) make herself less attractive. As you attested, Jake, she automatically becomes attractive to a new and very different type of guy. ( ? J-Rehl ?)
    That quote at the end of your linked article, though, totally makes me think she recognized whoever it was, like she woke up to see a face she recognized but couldn’t remember from where, and is using that video to weed him out somehow.

    I didn’t actually read the article.

  17. ms_dirtnap says:

    Have you now? I wouln’t normally recommend an article about (just realized her initials are BS), but I do this.

  18. mrdapper says:

    i’ve read it now. i didn’t get “raped” out of it. more “just snapped” and went emo.

  19. ms_dirtnap says:

    You may be right, but I will now have to follow every bit of BS gossip I can find in the media.

    “Go Ghostrider! Never stop ridin’! And don’t forget to burn! With! FIYAH!”

    I don’t think I’m going to pay for that movie.

    Also Britney’s hilarious life proves that you can never take the trailer park out of the girl. Nothin but hitchin’ up with losers, gettin’ fat, havin’ babies, and drinking your life away.
