Public Domain Noise Shit

I made this, no I didn't, I made shit, yes I did. Who gives a fuck? Use it if it fits with whatever you do.

Junk Mail Centerfold

This ought to drive people away. Yep, I'm/was a sick little monkey.

I Haven't done one of these in ages. I've had plenty of orgasms of course, but just not photographed the results. I don't buy magazines anymore; not in many years, but I do receive quite a lot of junk mail, so why not do something semi-creative or funny with it, instead of moaning about the stuff? I'm sure a lot of people will find this objectionable, sad, childish or sick. But I don't care, this is me, or part of me, literally. This one has been given a rough Photoshop edit; simply copying the 'r' and pasting it into 'pick' with a few other minor and obvious modifications. It's hardly high art, or art at all, so why labour over it?

These older ones I've decided to put back up here are from Sunday Newspaper Magazines, and they still make me laugh.

A few more films

There's plenty of reviews on imdb.

Welcome to Collinwood  Always funny when things go wrong.

Scenic Route - "Well, that's the funny thing..." loved this film.

The Perfect Host Starring David Hyde Pierce. I've only ever seen him in Frasier and he was brilliant in this too.

1408  One of the few horror films that I actually found quite unsettling. Love John Cusack too.

Some Films

I don't, or more to the point, can't write reviews because I suck at it. But here's a few films I really enjoyed watching in the past 12 months or so.

Blue Jasmine by Woody Allen of course. Love just about all his films with the exception of musicals which I've always detested. That's not entirely true, because All That Jazz springs to mind and I loved that.

Nothing to say about Captain Phillips, except that it was brilliant.

The Descendants - Very moving film with funny moments like the scene above. Have to admit that I'm a big George Clooney fan. It made me cry.

Drag Me to Hell - Wasn't sure about this one until I realised it was by Sam Raimi, how could I resist. Hilarious horror.

Frances Ha - Due to various distractions I've only watched half, but enjoyed it enough to want to see the rest. I think, one of those films you need to be in the right mood for. Finally, watched and loved it.

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai - The last of the Jim Jarmusch films I hadn't seen. Those gangsters were funny fuckers. Great film.

Only learned about Uwe Boll recently. Rampage was fantastic, not too sure about the rest of his though. Assault on Wall Street was ok, but some of the acting wasn't very convincing.

Politics bore me, Ken loach doesn't: The Spirit of '45

It was News to me: The Assassination of Richard Nixon

Although I haven't seen the Sean Penn version, the previous image reminded me of the great documentary -
The Times of Harvey Milk

Gripping scary shit. United 93

About Schmidt - Took me a while to get around to this one, but worth the wait. One of Jack's best. Which reminds me, I could really do with one of those.

Games are bad, they make you mad

Somehow I completely failed to notice this game until a few weeks ago. I wasn't really that much into games in 2003 apart from Silent Hunter II and MSM gaming Zone Chess. Well, I'm sure there were a few others that I can't be bothered to mention. In fact, the first online multiplayer game I ever played was something called bzflag back in 2000 (or whatever it was called then) which was a kind of futuristic first person tank game, and a hell of a lot of fun it was too. Apparently people are still playing it. Then along came Half-Life 2 in 2004 and later HL2-Deathmatch, the latter of which kept me hooked for a few good years. So anyway, I'm only on Tuesday in Postal 2, never thought I was going to get out of that burning library after having returned my book and dealing with those nasty tree lover/book burning people. Another game I really enjoyed recently was The Stanley Parable, I even dreamt I found a whole new level, but in reality I think I've gone through all the possible outcomes and there's too much walking over the same scenes for me to be interested in finding more - lazy bastard. Good for a couple of days of fun though. Why am I writing this? Fuck knows.
