Not Always Right

So in attempt to expand the stuff we cover on this site, I'm going to post something different. A couple months ago I was turned onto a site called I have since fallen in love with it. The concept is extremely simple. People write in about their interactions with terrible customers. It's insane to read the immense stupidity of your average customer. Working in Retail for several years of my life gives me an even greater appreciation for this website. Go there and have your mind boggled.

As a little bonus CheckOut a story I submitted and had published on there.

Charlie Bartlett

I know it's hard to believe, but yah I actually liked this movie. For a High School movie it was pretty decent. There were the typical lame cliches, but the main character/actor was great. I think this kid (Anton Yelchin) could really blow up. He took some really interesting turns with the character. The film is very reminiscent of Ferris Bulers day off. Not so much in the plot, but how one student obtains a sort of supernatural presence. Robert Downey Jr was great as usual, and Chris would have enjoyed Kat Dennings. If your looking for a indie teen movie check this out. I remeber seeing previews for the movie in theatre, and wasn't interested at all, but this is definately worth a viewing.

P.S. apparantly this kid is going to be playing Kyle Reese in the new terminator movie. Could be cool.
Also there is at least like 5 people from Degrassi in this. Must have been filmed in Canada.
One more thing. this is my favorite scene from the movie.

Foxy Shazam - Introducing

Foxy Shazam is quite possibly the most original sounding band I've heard in ages, and Introducing is a Bear of a fucking record. This music will seriously rock your teeth out. Ignore the goofy name, and goofy album art, and go check them out (myspace). The album starts out with what seems to be an old school pimp introducing them live on stage. The lead singer then begins screaming which starts off a song in which the lead singer keeps proclaiming how much he wishes he was black. The rest of the album continues be just as strange. The music ranges from My Chemical Romance to David Bowie to Chiodos to Meat Loaf to Andrew WK to James Brown. It's all over the place, but at the same time has a very distinct and original sound. Do yourself a favor and go check out Foxy Shazam!

Just Add Water

I seriously do not understand how this movie enlisted some many big names. All of these people must have owed the director or producer a couple big favors. This was a pretty pointless movie. It's about the shittiest town you've ever seen, in nowhere, CA. And all the people are too stupid to get out of the worst fucking place on earth. Oh did I forget to mention that Bro's run the town on their motor cross bikes. Yah. It's also got Danny DeVito trying to do rope tricks, which was kind of funny. But to be honest. This is definitely a movie you can skip, unless you are really hard up for a new movie from Jonah Hill or Justin Long (who was actually a little funny in this).

King Corn

A documentary about Corn. What could be more exciting? Well, to be honest a whole lot of things, but this Doc wasn't bad. There are some really interesting facts about corn in this thing. It's essentially the equivalent of Super Me for Corn. Who knew corn was so bad for you, or that it was so heavily used in American diets. I already knew several of the facts that were presented in the documentary, but it was very interesting, to see how corn is made, then used, and ultimately where it ends up. If your into documentaries along the lines of Supersize Me, you'll probably thoroughly enjoy this movie. But for anyone else besides farmers, this should probably be a pass.
