"What will you say to your parents when you see them?"
Wednesday, January 16, 2008
I'm curious. What's one movie, TV show, CD, book, song, whatever, that everyone seems to love but you hate?
I'll go first.
I cannot stand the movie Reservoir Dogs. I found it boring and vile. Yeah, yeah, Tarantino is the greatest filmmaker of all time.. whatever. Overrated.
I don't like Dave Matthews Band. I like Dave himself -- he seems like a good guy, and I liked him in Because Of Winn-Dixie. I can appreciate that he and his band are talented musicians. I just don't like their style of music or Dave's singing.
(My wife likes to play DMB when we ride in her car. She's cruel like that. But I always return the favor in my car with either Rush or Zeppelin.. her two favorites. Or, if I'm feeling really sadistic.. Styx. Heh heh. I'm cruel like that.)
Your turn. Don't be shy.

Take a man. Add eye work, unisex glasses and Botox. Mix in a bad haircut or unfashionably long hair--if possible, a dye job. A little doughy-ness doesn't hurt, either. Have a weakness for turtlenecks and by all means fight aging like it's a battle you can win if you try just a little harder, and there you have it: The winning formula to become a man who looks like an old lesbian.

Forgive me. I know this one's semi-ancient but by gawd it still makes me laugh. Every time I see it, I expect a Giant Hand to reach down from the sky and snatch the mic away from him. Don't miss the big finish.
Many thanks to Willie, Lynn, TheMovieGuru and whoever else sent this to me.
