My love for this lady just grew tenfold.
Metric - “Synthetica”
New Metric album is pretty great.
Just finished listening to it and I’m kind of mystified. I was a little bored by it. :( Hoping it’s a grower!
I like it so far. It’s just like…I don’t think they can ever top the greatness that was Fantasies and everything else will just pale in comparison. I still love you Emily Haines.
In 1978 when Joan Jett and I were both teenagers she checked into The Tropicana Motel for an extended stay. We ate giant hamburgers in the coffee shop and watched John Wayne on the TV. While I was in awe of everything, I stood in the corner of her room taking photos.
So this is happening in Gainesville, FL as we speak, and I am disgusted:
Meanwhile, Dove World is also getting attention for its latest display at its property at 5805 NW 37th St. It includes a lynched effigy of President Barack Obama, a baby doll with scissors in its head to symbolize abortion, an Uncle Sam and a rainbow flag to symbolize gays.
A series of signs reads “Obama is a killer” while the message “Obama killed America” is behind the effigy.
Dove World Pastor Terry Jones said Tuesday the display is intended to call attention to Obama’s performance as president, reflecting a belief that Obama has endangered the country and infringed on personal rights.
“It’s definitely a radical stunt, it’s definitely on the edge — the hanging of Uncle Sam, the hanging of Obama,” Jones said. “We feel that Americans have gotten so numb.”
Can this guy please move out of my hometown? I swear most people here are lovely.
Can’t stop listening.
This is my favorite song right now. Why are you so gorgeous?
Birthday Freestylin’ on Mathmatics
If you get me and Anthony together and give us any alcohol this is what happens. About a gallon of wine in we decided we needed to freestyle together. Sometimes we say weak shit and we need to save each other, but I think we’re getting pretty decent.
Choice lines: Anthony-Young slut in the party/getting real drunk slap a ho in Ed Hardy/I don’t give a fuck because I’m tipsy on bacardi/I don’t give a fuck because I’m feeling real naughty. Miranda-This whole life has been a stuggle/I am not made of magic, just a muggle/man you primitive we’ll call you Barney Rubble/if you wanna see me I’m a star check me in the Hubble
Happy 22 birthday to me. 0 good pictures thus far, but this one is so accurate. Double fisting wine. My best birthday gifts. Crunk as fuck.
By now, most Quentin Tarantino fans are aware of the connections interlaced throughout all of his films. John Travolta’s Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction is the brother of Michael Madsen’s Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs, Harvey Keitel’s Mr. White worked with Alabama from True Romance, the plot basis for Kill Bill is described as the synopsis for a TV series in Pulp Fiction, etc.
Now the epiphany that Eli Roth’s character of Donny Donowitz aka “The Bear Jew” in Inglourious Basterds is the father of the movie producer Lee Donowitz in True Romance has inspired a truly mind-blowing theory that the rest of the films (chronologically speaking) in Tarantino’s filmography take place in a world where [Inglorious Basterds spoiler] World War II came to an end when Adolf Hitler was brutally murdered in a movie theater by the Basterds.
As it turns out, Donny Donowitz, ‘The Bear Jew’, is the father of movie producer Lee Donowitz from True Romance – which means that, in Tarantino’s universe, everybody grew up learning about how a bunch of commando Jews machine gunned Hitler to death in a burning movie theater, as opposed to quietly killing himself in a bunker. Because World War 2 ended in a movie theater, everybody lends greater significance to pop culture, hence why seemingly everybody has Abed-level knowledge of movies and TV. Likewise, because America won World War 2 in one concentrated act of hyperviolent slaughter, Americans as a whole are more desensitized to that sort of thing. Hence why Butch is unfazed by killing two people, Mr. White and Mr. Pink take a pragmatic approach to killing in their line of work, Esmerelda the cab driver is obsessed with death, etc. You can extrapolate this further when you realize that Tarantino’s movies are technically two universes – he’s gone on record as saying that Kill Bill and From Dusk ‘Til Dawn take place in a ‘movie movie universe’; that is, they’re movies that characters from the Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, and Death Proof universe would go to see in theaters. (Kill Bill, after all, is basically Fox Force Five, right on down to Mia Wallace playing the title role.) What immediately springs to mind about Kill Bill and From Dusk ‘Til Dawn? That they’re crazy violent, even by Tarantino standards. These are the movies produced in a world where America’s crowning victory was locking a bunch of people in a movie theater and blowing it to bits – and keep in mind, Lee Donowitz, son of one of the people on the suicide mission to kill Hitler, is a very successful movie producer. Basically, it turns every Tarantino movie into alternate reality sci fi. I love it so hard.
All of this is very awesome but I just have to say Death Proof and Planet Terror are also movies within movies because they share characters with Kill Bill and From Dusk Till Dawn; Namely Earl and Edgar McGraw. Bonus nerd info: Edgar is also in a deleted scene in Machete.
