Quote from Ebert

The strange thing about "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is the way that Depp's performance seems to exist in a world of its own, while the film succeeds despite him. Depp is so consistently good that this miscalculation may simply be an illustration of his willingness to take chances. It's not a bad performance, just somehow a wrong performance

Exactly. Dan and I are preparing another she said/he said for this friday. This friday we take on...The Island

a few years ago a few friends and i went to bellingham washington. we hung out with our friend micheal griffen.....he is in a band called noggin...he's like 80 and plays noise music and is really nice and has cool shit all over his cool house....when we were there last i noticed his fish tank with no fish or water in it...it had many old rusty tool type things and a can of pepsi....on closer inspection i saw that the pepsi was no ordinary pepsi, but a pepsi kona in fact.....
you might be asking "worm, you are the best and i love you and was wondering if i could take a picture with you...okay no, i would just ruin the moment by being in it with you...i would like a picture of just you...but also could you enlighten me on what in the world a "pepsi kona" is?"
well, yes i'll give you a picture and i'll even sign it for you....and a pepsi kona was a mix of coffee drink and pepsi cola made in 1996...i think it was a test market for the east coast only.....thats why many of us may have never heard of it....
so my point....
they don't make this soda anymore...
my buddy, cody, and i decided to ebay it!...we found a 2 litter that costs 41.00 and some change....and a regular can of it for almost 11.00!!!!
so here is what i'm getting at....
i would like to know if anyone would like to split the cost of these drinks, one or both,...i'm looking for a few good men(and women)....say about 5 or 8 people to split the cost and we can all meet here at tower and try it out for the first time anyone has had it in nearly 10 years!!!!!
this is an exciting moment for us all and we should take it by the balls and rip them off!!!!
so how about it?...
oh yeah, one sidenote...the soda is expired so if you get sick from taking a half cup drink..then ...you're a pussy....that and you should realize that it's a risky venture, but it's a risk i'm willing to take....you should too!

world famous

p.s today we mixed pepsi cola with some tower coffee and made what we belive to be a pepsi kona....it didn't taste to bad....

i guess i'm in, but only if a bunch of other people are. i don't want to pay more than a couple of bucks. there's this gross stuff called "manhattan cola" that is actually manufactured in brooklyn near alicia's house and it's an espresso flavored soda. it's nastles.

Worm,

You and Cody are geniuses. You are goddamn right I'm in. I've heard pepsi kona is the nectar of the gods -- and it'll put hair in your chonies. Goddamn it I'm in.

If I'm not on the other side of the country I'll do it. But I wonder, should I share soda with a "worm"?

i'm in too.

aside of heckamax, worms' got all of the ladies agreeing to test out this special soda.

be weary, ladies....

oh, and i can't wait to hear about the Island!
it looks ok, but it has Johansson and McGregor, but it's a stupid premise. gah! i can't decide!

ok, so there's two options. we have one can, which is going for about $11 on ebay right now...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7171958046&category=13614&ssPageName=WDVW&rd=1

and one two liter bottle with an opening bid of $41 and a buy it now option of $41.25
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7172388871&category=13614&ssPageName=WDVW&rd=1

any idea on how we do this? it seems like the two-liter would be better, but that's a whole lot of money to pay for nine years expired soda that may or may not kill us and/or make us sick. or be delicious. thoughts?

me and karlos will go in and buy the kona, but you people best throw in some money so we're not out upwards of $20 each for what may be poison-cola. or delicious-cola.

I don't know. Two liter sounds better but I wonder if a plastic bottle would be more likely to go bad. If we were all killed by that at least it would be funny.

p.s.-what kind of dumbass posts and opening bid of $41 and a "buy it now" of 41.25? Why the fuck would you ever make a higher bid than that?

Shit! I always write and when I mean an.

Sure, I'll throw in a few bucks too. Why not.
