From the Depths of the Rewrite ...

... random thoughts:

-- No, I have not been doing a lot of political blogging lately. The Vice-President is openly in favor of torture, the President seems to have a problem with operating cutting edge Bronze-Age door technology, and the Iraqi government we installed and are protecting without our troops have declared that whacking US troops is not terrorism in their book-- the insurgency version of the famous moment from Beanstalk Bunny: "He's Jack!" My feeble swipes at satire seem unworthy.

That said, reports that Cheney has encased himself in armor and built a series of identical Cheney-bots now seem completely plausible.

-- the "denim" department of even the swankiest department store: kind of porny.

-- Watching the final episode of Rome on the couch in my garage with a good buddy, then watching Tivo'd Veronica Mars while eating Rocky Road, a kitten on my lap ... not gay, but certainly gay-ish. I see now where the line is.

-- Margaret Cho's latest, Assassin, is not quite as sharp as her remarkable troika of I'm the One That You Want/Notorious C.H.O./Revolution. I'd pick up that box set in a heartbeat, but maybe let Assassin slide until cable. Her stage and mimicry skills are still impressive, but there are fair number of jokes in here which are more applause lines/unexplored setups than executed material. The audience feels a little sluggish, too. *

That said, it's always nice to see someone so empowered in their sexuality. The only person I can think of who trumps Margaret Cho is Amanda Marcotte over at Pandagon. Marcotte is so sexually empowered, I walked out of my office yesterday to find her vagina had stolen my parking space.





* (Bonus trivia: My own sitcom pilot shot on Margaret's sitcom's stage immediately after it had been cancelled. Her bookstore became my Irish bar. Hollywood is indeed high school ...)

This is why I moved up to the secret mountain HQ - accessible via rocketsled only. Though everything does go better with vagina.

Yeah! What is that about.

Might as well open a chain of stores called "Clear Heels" for women who have no illusions about dressing like hookers.

Glad to hear you aren't suffering from Sushi poisoning ala Josh Friedman.

However one has to ask from the UK "Denim" departments? Are you kidding me?

And surely the best line for Bush is that "it's not that he doesn't know he's over stayed his welcome. The problem is he can't figure out how to get out"

Hollywood is heaven.

Also, re: above, don't knock sushi.

Perfect.

That post generated 3 LOLs and a ROTFLMAO. It made me :-D

"I see now where the line is."

I beg to differ... you're nowhere near the line, not even in sight of the line unless and until you've french kissed someone of the same gender as yourself.

I should know, I crossed the line ages ago... ;)

Sean said...

That was good for a laugh. And Veronica Mars is great! My Mom loves it and turned me on to it. I need to see the "Reefer Madness" she was in. Watching those shows keeps us young...

BenDavid said...

Bought Veronica Mars on DVD. Promptly shat my pants after watching the last, clever, fulfilling episode. Downloaded all of this season so far, not as good, but still really great. Last week was really telling. I was watching Lost (which at one point I declared the greatest show of all time) then started recording Lost on Tivo and switched over to motherfucking Veronica Mars.

That took me back to the best line I heard on TV this year:

"I submit you took that baseball, stashed it in your unusually large vagina and walked right on out of here."

When Bush fumbled the door handle I was hoping men in bedsheets would storm the stage and get all Brute on his ass.

Is that gayish?

You know, I can see the Grand Canyon without rafting the Colorado. If you know what I mean.

BenDavid said...

That was the best episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm in years. The ring at the end...

writergurl said...

LOL...

Yes, you can, but you implied that you were dippping your toes in the water there...

" ... not gay, but certainly gay-ish."

'member?

As someone who has worked his fair share of retail:

-If you're in a deparment store, the cologne/fragrance counter is like the parlor of a brothel. The denim department is where all the action is.

-The shoe department is where to go if you're a betting man. I once worked in a place where they were running numbers out of there.

-You don't want to know what is going on in men's essentials. If you are buying underwear, make sure the bag is SEALED. You don't want your boys to have been in somebody else's hood.

And the great thing is that it won't air here in the UK for at least a year so I can make the 'unusually large vagina' sign with my hands now and only worry about payback at the back end of '06.

Sweet.

Juancho said...

Oh, and the new Margaret Cho book is still funny, but way too serious and a bit of a rehash.
