Random Thoughts of a Movie Insomniac: Issue 2

My computer has not been doing to well these past few days which does explain the lack of posts that have not been appearing on this site.  As I mentioned before I do want to start a vlog very soon, but I have to think of a compelling enough idea that would last fifteen minutes.  I don't have any cool editing software and my tits are not that big, so I can't imagine anyone who would want to take time out of their day to view me. But trust me, something is in the works.  

I have Netflix again,but now when I try to watch a movie it says it needs to download a new program to view it.  What complete bullshit,I have never needed to download anything to watch a movie before .  Besides the last time I did, it caused my computer a lot of problems.  The same ones I'm having now.  Thank God for public libraries.  I get to see a bunch of classic and independent features that are not available on Netflix, and I also get the special features that are not included when it's streaming either.  I think the last movie I watched streaming was "Jeff, Who Lives at Home".  It's not really worth writing a review about, because the whole movie can be summed up in this haiku.

Jeff ,Who Lives at Home.
Helps brother win his wife back.
Bro's a dick,Why Help?

On DVD I did manage to pick up a copy of a movie called "Head" starring the Monkees.  This also does not need a review because it has no major story line.  The best way to describe it would be that it combines "A Hard Day's Night" and "Holy Motors" and features The Monkees instead of The Beatles.  The script was co written by Jack Nicholson and the director while they were doing acid.  The film itself features drug use, group sex,violence and it's rated G.  This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the best time for moves were late 60's up until the very early 80's.  At least everything up until John Carpenter's remake of "The Thing" and "Blade Runner". 

You may not be aware of this, but I have started writing music reviews for a site called MV Remix and two of my articles have already posted with another one due very shortly.  Here are the ones that I have written about so far.  Let me know what you think?

Caveman. Album Review.

Bleached - Ride Your Heart. Album Review.

I also play drums for a fun glam rock/punk outfit called Parental Advisory.  We are  Minnesota's best underground party band, and have even opened shows before Debbie Gibson and one of the girls from Destiny's Child that is not Beyonce.   Check out some vids at our most recent show.

Allright, well that's it for me.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
