    Is there anything that today, you just thought was really kind of great, perhaps for no apparent reason? Well, just shuck it in here.

    Today I think that Irish names are just awesome. Eavan, Beolagh, Gormlaith, Caoilfhinn: I can’t pronounce you, but you are all so great.

    Breaking Bad.

    Irish names

    They’re overrated.

    I have to disagree. Sansa, I think your real name is one of the awesomest I’ve heard. :)

    .... what’s his real name?

    And the newest Breaking Bad was just wow.

    I think it is, and MDC agrees. (at least, I assume so, seeing as that’s how I got into it in the first place!) But your mileage may vary. And, for what it’s worth, I really prefer some of the other episodes to the first two-parter.

  7.  

    ^JLA’s starting two-parter wasn’t as good as many later episodes, either.
    So it’s not really indicative.

    Also today I think Eric Decker and Rob Gronkowski are awesome, for making me look like I’m good at fantasy football. The great thing about having your late picks being awesome is that people see those and ignore your early picks underperforming.

    Also I played some pickup games with Decker when I was in, I dunno, sixth or seventh grade, and it’s neat to see somebody you’ve encountered do well in the pros… unless it’s Colt McCoy.

    ^Creepiness aside, I rather liked the guy.
    He was far more of a real threat than any other villain in the series, and episodes featuring him Him were far darker and more serious than the rest.

    I’ve never seen a sillier or more delightful version of Hollywood Oriental philosophy. In the scene where the bus driver is casting their fortune, you can’t tell whether the whole cast is laughing at Bollywood kung fu movies, if the Asian characters are laughing at Kurt Russell, or if the Asians – in character – are just BSing the truck driver. There’s so many levels of goofiness.

    An appropriate symbol of the whole thing’s attitude is the sacrificial altar at the end – which is outlined in garishly cheesy neon lights.

    I tend to think a balanced option sis best. I would send my kids to public school, but then actually sit down with them afterwards and go through what they learned, instead of just trusting the school to do all the work.

    I don’t think either option is best in isolation. Basically, in my opinion, the best approach is a bit of both.

    I’m a pretty melancholy person.

    Around this time of year, the leaves start to change color where I live. Those leaves, the sudden chill in the air, really make me feel alive. There’s something about the promise of death in the fall, and the memory of resurrection in the spring to come, that calls to me. Around this time of year, I start to feel this warm, sweet sense of regret and loss. I remember all these good times I’ve had, I mourn over people I’ve known who’ve left my life for good in one way or another, try to come to grips with my messed-up past. I am forcefully reminded that in time all things, good or bad, must pass away.

    Like I said, I’m kind of a brooder, and I love that feeling, just being sunk in a rich whirlpool of memories and days I’ve lost forever.

    Christian authors can and should tell stories of Greek and Norse gods, of dragons, giants, goblins, faeries, of witches on broomsticks, of pixies, gnomes, elves and dwarves. These stories are the chains in which defeated Boggarts are paraded in triumph before the Risen Christ.

    Kristen Stewart is actually very cute IRL.
    She plays Bella exactly as she was written – spazzed-out facial expression and, yes, acute physical discomfort. Because she’s in danger of falling over and breaking in pieces everytime Edward leaves her side for more than thirty seconds.

    I’ve got nothing against brown-eyed girls, mind you, but when someone is wearing contacts of a different colour than their natural colour, it always ends up looking a little off.

    The Room?

    True that. Except for Nikki Reed, who plays Rosalie. She said in an interview that the bleach blonde dye didn’t agree with her (she’s a brunette IRL), and it made her hair fall out in clumps.

    I think the actors probably had a lot of fun in those movies. No human being can take those parts seriously.

    From what I understand, unlike Pattinson, Stewart takes her role VERY seriously. Also, she’s flat in all her roles, not just Bella—I think they just cast her because she already fit the bill, no acting required. Me and a friend of mine watched a horror movie with her in it called ‘the warning’ or something like that. Every scene where she should have been terrified out of her ever-loving mind, her facial expression could be summed up as ‘disgruntled surprise.’ But apparently she’s a very humble person, so at least she doesn’t say she has more than she’s got, which is admirable.

  33.  

    ^Um, no.
    She’s far more rounded in Catch That Kid, where she plays a teenaged girl who’s trying to rob a bank to get money for her dad’s operation.

    Also, she’s an anti, but you have to look very closely at her interviews to pick that up. She’s not as vocal and snarky as Rpattz. I think this is mainly because she was already kind of famous before Twilight, where he was only known as Cedric Diggory (and now he’s stuck with being Edward forever, which infuriates him to no end). It could also be because she doesn’t want to cause a fuss, since her character is already just pretty much background noise compared to the two male leads – who are the objects of lust for millions of girls and frustrated middle aged women.
    Rpattz just doesn’t give two shits, because he’s that angry about the fact that he’ll always be Edward.

    The Room is a low-budget horror film widely considered to be the worst movie ever made. The plot makes no sense at all, and it slowly becomes obvious that the actors are aware they’ve been dumped in a lousy movie and are just goofing off and overplaying their parts.

    Yeah, seriously. Most people are like Bella who? I firmly believe that when people say Team Edward/Team Jacob, it’s not her on the other end of that relationship, if you catch my drift…

    I actually really like him. I used to blindly despise the guy since every girl I was interested in went through a swooning-over-Twilight phase, but the actor himself has turned out pretty cool.

    Not all hope is lost. Maybe if he got a tan and combed his hair down, he might be reasonably unrecognizable. A dye job may be in order as well.

    Well, Catch that Kid is pretty old so she’s probably changed a lot since then, but perhaps I’ve just seen all her bad movies, or the ones where her characters happened to be similarly…bored, I guess—possible, since I’ve only seen three or four of her movies where her presence actually bleeped in my brain. After seeing a commercial where she and the woman who plays Victoria (that’s the red-head vampire’s name, right?) basically just said, ‘this movie is awesome, go to it,’ Victoria-actress was quite bright and peppy about it, while Stewart didn’t really seem excited about her own film, which struck me as odd.

    But yeah, I feel bad for Pattinson.

  34.  

    EVERYBODY BETRAY ME, I FED UP WITH THIS WARLD

    Kristen Stewart is a fine actress in the right roles, but she’s never been accused of having a tremendous range. Check out Adventureland if you’re curious.

  35.  

    actors are aware they’ve been dumped in a lousy movie and are just goofing off and overplaying their parts

    Hahaha, reminds me of Eragon. Everyone there chew the scenery to bits… except for Edward Speelers, amusingly, who played the title character. He took it all seriously and (possibly) as result of that (as well as the badness of the movie itself), he’s faded into obscurity where he was supposed to be the Next Big Hot Young Hottie Who Can Totally Act.

    if you catch my drift…

    Oh ho ho, I do. The subtext in the original novels don’t help at all.

    I used to blindly despise the guy

    I felt the same way about Daniel Craigg. He and his orange swimshorts and gigantic pecs ruined things for me big time.

    Not all hope is lost

    Even if he still looks the same, he could knock of the rep by playing a character who is a) not just some romantic lead, b) vastly different from anything he’s ever done before and c) a very complex character.
    Personally I’d like to see him as an absolutely despicable villain – like the late Ledger’s Joker. Or Mr Blonde.
    And no, he can’t get a tan. He’s British, the sun will kill him within minutes. :-P

    Victoria-actress was quite bright and peppy about it

    Bryce Dallas Howard, right?
    she’s always perky.

    while Stewart didn’t really seem excited about her own film

    If I were her, I wouldn’t be, either.
    HAHAHA!

    @ Sansa

    Yeah, Adventureland is one of those movies where she seems bored again—watched it the same day as bad horror movie, so there must have been a Stewart marathon or something. However, it seemed appropriate there, so I didn’t notice it—I’ve noticed in movies with that sort of Indy feel (even when they aren’t actually indy) lead ladies have a sort of subdued but effective approach.

    I loved Catch That Kid. She had the same sort of mannerisms but was much perkier and had actual facial expressions.

    Has anyone seen The Cake Eaters? She completely transforms her movements for that one (kind of had to, since she was playing a girl with a physical disability there). And she did it about six years ago, when she was seventeen. If only she realised that you have to act with your whole body every single time, and that not every character she plays is going to bit her lip and gasp… it’d be better.

    My drama teacher has this poster taped up in his office that was apparently an ad for an insurance company which he cut out of the newspaper. On it, on one side, is Adolf Hitler, hand extended in the Nazi salute. On the other side is Winston Churchill, with his hand lifted in his customary peace sign. And between them, printed in big, bold letters are the words: Scissors beats paper.

    It is the single most epic thing in the world.

    Also, you guys seen the “Historically Hardcore” posters Smithsonian did? When in college I’m gonna chase down the whole set.

    EDIT: Seems they’re fake. Shame, that’s good advertising right there.

    Vince Gilligan. He’s the showrunner for Breaking Bad, and he’s the subject of the latest 4-part interview on the AV Club with the heads of shows that website likes(I know they’ve done Community and Parks and Rec already) talking through the latest season episode by episode. It’s a great read, though I wouldn’t recommend it for anybody who hasn’t watched the show since it’s bursting with spoilers.

    This bit in particular is great, though:

    “Mystery is good; confusion is bad. Sometimes, if you squint, they can seem like one and the same, but they’re really not at all. Confusion usually derives from a lack of internal logic. It derives from characters who suddenly stop behaving in recognizable ways. And mystery is just a lack of illumination.”

    @ Inkblot: THOSE ARE AWESOME.

    “Mystery is good; confusion is bad. Sometimes, if you squint, they can seem like one and the same, but they’re really not at all. Confusion usually derives from a lack of internal logic. It derives from characters who suddenly stop behaving in recognizable ways. And mystery is just a lack of illumination.”

    That’s a really interesting quote. I’ve wanted to see Breaking Bad for a while now. It seems like a very intelligent show.
