"Aww man, I gotta feed my snake." – Heard while in evolutionary psychology today.
On a Completely Related Note: I pretty much hate snakes more than anything.
The recent Spice Girls Reunion Tour has stirred up some emotion in me over another Prefab British pop group, this one consisting of seven (now 6) young individuals with great voices and the moves to back them up.
What wonderous group am I referring to? Well, S Club of course. Oh how I long for another album put forth by Jon, Hannah, Bradley, Rachel, Tina, Jo, and (before he left) Paul. I doubt they’ll ever do a reunion tour like their big sister band, the Spice Girls, but if they did I’d definitely think about going to it and then settle on just purchasing the album.
Oh, and a word about the picture. Why the hell is Hannah stuck in a hoodie while the others are wearing shirts and tank tops? It’s weird, Hannah. Go change!
About two weeks ago the executive director of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force, Matt Foreman, stated
at a press conference that HIV/AIDS is a "gay disease" and that we (gays) must "own up to it." I cannot even begin to put into words how flabbergasted this makes me. Why would the head of a pro-gay organization say something so damned detrimental to the community? From what I hear, his point was that HIV/AIDS in the U.S. mainly affects gay males (about 70% of those with HIV have been infected by men who have engaged in male/male sex), but there have GOT to be better ways of saying it such as "gay men are at a much higher risk of contracting HIV, moreso than any other section of the population, and awareness must be raised immediately." Tah-Dah! The End! No harm, no foul.
The thing is that now the right has got ahold of a quote from the gay head of a major gay organization saying that HIV/AIDS is a "gay disease." Not Good. Mr. Foreman, what the hell were you thinking?
I’ve been at a lack of things to say lately, and today is no exception, so today’s entry will just consist of all the new movies that I cannot wait to see, followed by a comment.
Hancock – "Green Peace does."
Wall*E – Could a robot be any cuter? No, I think not.
Star Trek XI – Words cannot describe the level of awesome.
The Signal – INTENSE.
Funny Games – Clockwork Orange anyone?
Baby mama – Another Tina Fey movie . . . FUCK YES!
Son of Rambow – "Good Morning, Lee Carter". . . "I’m all right, Lee Carter!"
The Happening – M Night Shyamalan, Check. Marky Mark, Check. Zooey Deschanel, Check!
In this installment of creepy kid from the past we’ve got two kids. Two very very special kids that look as if they were either from Gatlin, Nebraska (Children of the Corn reference); bitten by Lestat (Interview with the Vampire reference); or infected by some type of space virus that reanimates the dead (Night of the Living Dead reference). Whatever happened to them, it sure as hell made them creepy as shit.
On A Completely Different Note: I just saw the scariest thing I have ever seen, on The Soup. It’s "La Pequena Prohibida" and if it doesn’t creep you out you are strange. This little guy is a real life Creepy Person From The Now.
