Lounge in Bremerton packed a Wednesday night house with
Seattle’s Cave Singers
and The Dutchess and the Duke. It was an intimate stop on a
statewide tour that will also bring the indie folk bands to The
Showbox March 6 to a decidedly larger crowd than the full-capacity
68 who were at Hi-Fidelity.
This new show is so awesomely bad that it deserves a drinking
1 Drink – Every Time There is slow motion.
1 Drink – Blood or blood splatter
Finish Drink – Per Decapitation
Do a Dance – sex scene, they bump and grind, you bump and
Do a Dance – For bad dialogue, celebrate that crappy writing.
Other optional gaming rules (If you really want to get
1 Drink – every time someone talks of revenge or wanting someone’s
1 Drink – every time the CG looks uber fake.
For the trailer alone, you should have taken at least 30 drinks and
shaken your booty around a dozen times. Enjoy responsibly.
Ok, so I found out that they are making a American Psycho
musical. First off American Psycho is one of my favorite films as
well as one of the funniest/entertaining books I’ve ever read. The
fact that they are making a musical out of it makes me excited as
well as cringe. Apparently the producers of HBO’s Big Love are
behind this project. Duncan Sheik is slated to score the thing.
Duncan Sheik? Really? Maybe if they were doing a Dawsons
Creek musical, but not American Psycho. Why not get Phil
Collins or David Byrne from the Talking
Heads, or any of the other artists mentioned in Ellis’ book. I
doubt Heuy Lewis’ date book is filled. They need to make it
uber upbeat and 80s not (cringe) acoustic/soft modern contemporary
i.e. Duncan Sheik.
But since learning of these new musical aspirations, In a weird
way it makes sense to make it into a musical. Ellis’ character
Patrick Bateman is portrayed as a music fanatic as he (Ellis)
devoted entire chapters to analyzing different albums of the 80’s
era in extreme detail. So why not take that musical fanaticism to
the extreme and make the book a musical?
I dare you not to read pages from the book and not sing them, it
adds an entirely new dimension to the story and its characters.
Imagine singing lines like “I was freaked out by the park bench
that followed me for six blocks…” or ” My need to engage in
homicidal behavior on a massive scale cannot be corrected, but, ah,
I have no other way to fulfill my needs.” I cant wait to hear
Celine Dion’s cover.
First off, I loved Avatar, I’m
a sci-fi guy at heart (not SyFy, … cringe) and I’m not jumping on
the hate train any time soon, but one of my friends showed me this
Avatar/Fern Gully mash up and I just had to share it. Some middle
aged guy in Idaho must have spent weeks in his parents’ basement
putting this together. He/she did such a good job, I don’t know if
I should give him a mail order bride, or a box of high fives. Watch
for the eerie “match ups”in audio, so creepy but worth sitting
through this three and a half minute vid. Surprisingly I have never
watched Furn Gully, and my only frame of reference for its quality
is my girlfriend… so is it worth the watch?
Anyhoo, rad vid. another mash up vid that a friend showed me is
Darth Bale, a
site that splices Bales infamousblow up rants into scenes from Star
wars, Bale as Darth Vader. (warning not safe for work, unless your
work allows you to curse like sailors.)
