OK, so I did what Leon said to stop the spam. Hopefully it will work.
DB has a new blog. I'm sure it will be great. Here's what he has to say about it.
I am starting my own blog, and I was wondering if you could give me a mention on your blog. It is called The Barnesyard and the address is barnesyard.blogspot.com. It is basically an informal setting where I can "rap" with the teens about the issues that really matter to them. That, and movies. Really just movies. I wouldn't worry about me stepping on your toes, since I am, at heart, a lazy, lazy man.
I went with DB to watch the Brothers Grimm last night, so perhaps he will review that soon. I left after about a half hour so I'd like to hear what he thought of the rest of this movie. I don't know what the budget of the movie was but it looks like it was about $1.56. The lighting was terrible and the two stars looked like shit. Even the hopes of seeing Belluci's rack was not enough to keep me in my seat (and D.P. said it doesn't make and appearance anyway). The humor was painfully flat. Gilliam's lost it.
Charles sent me another press release:
This Friday, September 2nd, at the Distillery, at 10pm, for 5-6 dollars
TALK ABOUT CHARLES presents
The Playboy Millionaires
This could be the best show of the year. I read about it on the Internet.
I don't know about the other bands, but the Readymades are good.
The show last night was not so stellar for me. Magik Markers had technical problems so they took forever to set up and derailed the momentum of the show. It was just spazzing out and I wasn't even sure if that's how they normally sound or if it was because they hadn't fixed the technical problems. The singer had a kinda autistic vibe. Imagine a wholesome looking girl with braids and a wide baby-blue plastic headband and girlscouty shorts sort of humping the ground and coughing into the mic for so long that her face turns beet red and it seems like she may be hurting herself. And then playing the drum with her foot while she holds the mic in her mouth. And imagine that going on for 15 minutes while the other people in the band spazz out in lesser ways. Then The Band Who Shall Not Be Named took the stage. They tried to create some excitement by gathering the balloons that were strewn throughout the FF and putting them up front. It seemed like kind of a pathetic ploy. He gave shout-outs to Cali and Sac, too. It was like a FM102 summerjam all the sudden and you know how weak those are. I expected them to be all intense and crazy but it was pretty jammy and noodly. They would sometimes build to something but then it would just fade away for me because they didn't really seem to be trying.
