The wonderful world of movies and such!

I don't know. Lately I have been looking at Grant Miller Media a lot. The guy is just funny. Real funny. And thankfully prolific too! I got influenced by one of his latest posts about a particular movie that's out now to do this. So blame his sick mind for the bad influence! Anyway, without further ado, here are some movie reviews for "Elephallus," a new movie coming to your local theatres soon! I heard that it's pretty good! These noted critics told me so!

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times says: "Elephallus is maybe the best of the year in a year that has some outstanding films. Its got the candor, the pathos and energy to sustain the audiences' attention through the whole hour and a half. You know what I really liked about this movie? the rock hard script. The lyrical, almost eloquent lines that these characters have is one thing that really stands out!

Christy Lemire of the Associated Press writes: "I took the whole famly to see it. We were all amazed at this film! An hour and a half? It didn't even seem half that long! The ebb and flow just glided along to it's natural conclusion. I was fascinated by the characters. These characters will never fade in my memory, they are imprinted into my brain!"

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone says: "Awww geez! This one is fun! A rollicking, twisty, twitchy, good time for all ages. If you're searching for the answers to life's questions in this film, you won't find them here! I predict this flick is going to be huge! Really huge. Take a friend and let this film's magic grow on you!"

Here are some of the trailers for the new Miramax film-Elephallus:

I have a confession to make; (see there's another GMM influence!) I had a crush on Toni Tenille of the Captain and Tenille, when I was around 10, 11. Yes, I know, that may sound like an odd person to choose for a crush but I did, ok? I had this album:

On this album they had the song Muskrat Love and another song called Broddy Bounce that had Toni telling her and the Captain's dogs to "roll over" "sit" "stay," and "good boy" I kinda fantasized that Toni was telling me to do those things. Ok, I know that is #$%^ sick for a 10, 11 year-old boy to be thinking. I just want you to know that I don't think that way anymore.

I don't know-maybe it was the way she gave those commands.

Here is a clip that isn't meant to be funny but in it Johnny Rotten gives his thoughts about the Iraq war and what he thinks of our President. I thought this was humorous just for that fact that in the middle of this serious conversation with the interviewer, he does something that is a little jarring.

Like I always say: When making an argument to dismantle nuclear weapons, or develop a cogent, well-thought out plan to fix our health care crisis, a well-placed belch can make your argument that much stronger. (especially if you have just had a Quizno's Original Italian with onions, and sour cream chips!)
