I’ve posted a few of this guys videos before. Just … sickeningly talented.
New Netflix Series
I’ve heard from a few online friends in the last couple of days that this is worth a look. Any of you bastards checked it out yet?
Hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children’s games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits — with deadly high stakes.
Where Can I Get One?
A lust camera, that is.
For the Sophisticated Bastard
I had never seen a single episode of this show, and didn’t know much about it when some friends dragged me to the first movie.
It was glorious, I was crying within ten minutes, and felt like I got a workout from laughing so hard.
Hell’s Wizard Demands Chained Nudes
Seriously, what’s with the toga?
What He Said
Finished the second season of The Boys last night. It wasn’t nearly as great as the first, as this guy so helpfully explains. Here’s hoping the next outing recalibrates.
Don’t Watch After Eating
I hate the songs of Jimmy Webb. He won a jillion Grammy’s, and he’s regularly named as a great songwriter by people who really should know better (Bruce Springteen and some others). At his best, his songs are merely annoying, melodically vapid, and oozing with gooey sentimentality (his songs for Glen Campbell: Galveston, Wichita Lineman, By the Time I Get To Phoenix). At his worst, they are also pretentious (McArthur Park) and stupid beyond all description (Up, Up and Away, McArthur Park again). I once played Richard Harris’s original hit version of McArthur Park to my older son, who was certain I was playing him a comedy record. If you’re so inclined, above you can watch him perform what could be the worst song ever written with such bone-headed earnestness that you may find yourself wanting Anton Chigurh to walk up and do his captive bolt stunner thing on him. I didn’t even make it to the infamous “cake out in the rain” part (surely the dumbest metaphor ever devised). In a way it’s funny, but mostly not. My question to you bastards: am I incorrect? If any of you are Jimmy Webb fans, can you clue me in as to what’s good about him? Did he write some hidden gems I’ve never heard? Because based on his biggest hits, I don’t get his reputation as one of the greats at all.
Ride The Nazi’s Swing Of Agony, My Little One
The Nazis must have spent a fortune on lingerie.
Beat Club Medley
I have no idea what this is, but you cosmopolitan musical snobs and German Fat Elvis can enlighten us.
PG&E, Kinks, Chuck Berry, Mick Taylor-era Stones, surprisingly not terrible Grateful Dead, and Doors without Morrison.
