New doc on the consumer credit biz looks pretty good. Those collection guys: A-S-S-H-O-L-E-S!

Frontline did a very good piece on the credit biz a few years ago. And this was before the new bankruptcy laws. Usury is alive and well. Watch it online for free.

And God bless Harvard’s Elizabeth Warren, that woman is tireless when it comes to fighting these greedy asshats.

Don’t know how I missed this.

Two words: hedge trimmer.
Even less interesting: Pete Wentz (of Fallout Boy) is touching himself. Inappropriately. Lame ‘cum catcher’ tat to boot.

Gays brokenhearted over ‘Brokeback’ loss

This retarded headline over at sfgate barely prepares you for the ridiculous article.

“I felt like ‘Brokeback Mountain’ was a film that brought Americans together over issues of homophobia,” said Grant Colfax, who hugged and wept with his partner, Rod Rogers, as the final award of the night went to a movie that instead explored issues of race. Although Colfax said he liked “Crash,” he called it a safe choice.
Others were less diplomatic.
“I think that’s an absolute horror,” said Brad Bruner, who is a leader in the Golden State Gay Rodeo Association. “It’s an outright sign of homophobia in our country. (‘Crash’) won no awards before this. It makes me sick.”

Weeping? WEEPING? Homophobic Hollywood? Cowboy fags from the 60s a modern day bridge builder? Good gravy, what a bizzare reality distortion field. Last I checked, we still live in a world where we worry about SpongeBob’s sexuality and Katrina was punishment for homosexuality.

Who is Eric Bana?

Yeah, exactly…

Troy Play-by-Play

Posted by: on May 16, 2004 | One Comment

Saw Troy the other night. It’s about as true to Homer’s Iliad as Homer’s Iliad was to real events, which was written 400 years after the fact. But I’m not here to write a review. Rather, I present to you, my play-by-play:

  • Previews. Previews. Previews. Fandango commercial. And I’ve got 2 hours and 42 minutes of movie to go through. Better get comfortable. Skittles and 7-Up — CHECK. OK, bring on the gratuitous man meat.
  • Oh, Carolyn’s putting her glasses on. She doesn’t want to miss one drawn-out camera pan down Brad’s ripped and filthy body.
  • There’s Brad. Laying on a bevy of babes, natch. Shock! He’s half naked! Shocked, I tell you!
  • It’s David vs. Goliath meets The Matrix! Brad slays the giant while flying through the air complete with a 360 camera pan.
  • Oh, look, Brad in a loincloth! Ok, it’s really a miniskirt. But whatever… friggin’ bastard, making life difficult for the rest of us guys. He’s 40 and looks like that.
  • Oh, who cares. It’s Orlando Bloom in a loincloth. Eh.
  • Why. Does. Everyone. Talk. Like. This? No wonder it’s 3 hours!
  • Orlando’s character is “Paris.” Thankfully, that’s slightly less gay of a name than Orlando.
  • Is Helen on Quaaludes?
  • Oh, look, Eric Bana in a loincloth! And he can actually act. And he looks like that. I could quit work, devote myself to the gym 8 hours a day, and I still wouldn’t look like that.
  • Battle. Battle. Battle.
  • The guy playing Brad’s cousin is creepy. Half poor-man Brad Pitt, half grown-up Hanson brother. *shudder*
  • Agamendmon looks like he’s harboring lice up in that beard. But, okay, Brian Cox is doing a good job being a filth-bag.
  • Yep, it’s official. Helen’s on Quaaludes.
  • Aw, Brad has a heart. And apparently has no problem with Trojan cooter.
  • Why do the Trojan Emperor’s spiritual advisors look like characters from Guantlet?
  • Battle. Battle. Battle.
  • Holy crap, is that Morrissey? Can’t be. That guy is everywhere all-asudden. Well, Meat Loaf was in Fight Club. Brad’s got a boner for has-beens.
  • What is it with chicks and Restalyne? Stop pumping your lips already! It doesn’t look historically accurate, especially considering the rest of this movie is… ahem.
  • Jesus, will this thing ever end? I think my ass is starting to sweat. Turn the air on already!
  • Nope, ain’t Morrissey. Thank God. I was about to get all fixated on that.
  • Shit. Hectar (er, uh, Eric) is dead. Bathroom break time.
  • Troy meets Burning Man. Well, Burning City at least.
  • Achillis Heal Thing == Lamest — Thing — Ever.
  • Man, it’s almost been 3 hours. I bet Courtney Love has been arrested 3 times while I’ve been in this theater. The world is going on without me…
  • Oh, mother of God. The credits. Dear Lord? I have suffered many hardships! Be kind to me.

Bad. Stupid. Idiotic. Silly. Insulting (to Philip K. Dick). Badly filmed. Bad makeup. Moronic. Ridiculous. Lame.

Ugh, adjectives make me tired… you get the idea.
