Less Than Zero

I watched this movie from 1987 again and still can't believe it has been 20 years since I lived the plot of the Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name. Around that time I went home from college and found a bunch of people had either died, moved away, got married, been in rehab or jail. Among the users were a few suburban freebase smokers, the "white" version of crack cocaine. A friend had me drive him to rehab only before he bought a can of soda he poured out in the parking lot and a box of baking soda so he could make a pipe out of the can and base up one last time... it was sad to the extreme, but I had my own problems, mostly with women go figure! Cheaters, fakes and phonies, pretending to be one thing to get you to like them and then turning into their true personalities while I stuffed my own feelings inside, lived in denial and bounced from one relationship to another like a pinball on its way to a tilted game...

The movie had mixed reviews, but Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal of a cocaine addicted over-privelaged Hollywood boy was more than foreshadowing for his later life. The soundtrack was assembled by Rick Rubin and includes a good time capsule for the mid-1980s.

Special Buddies!

One of the most hysterical things I've seen on TV in a long while was the episode of MTV's "Rob and Big" where they make their own cereal box as a knock-off of Kashi's "Good Friends" cereal.
Rob and Big dress in drag and get the photo on a demo box of their cereal, "Special Buddies", they even have their own theme song. The bootleg of the video gets periodically posted and removed off of YouTube by Viacom, so good luck finding this gem!
It occurred to be that Rob looks just like Rudy Giuliani in drag, separated at birth?

You decide.

Making dinner...

I LOVE the Chef Boyardee Pizza 'Kit'!

It's true... thing is make sure to buy a bag of shredded mozzarella to put on top, because the powdered cheese they give you is good for adding to the sauce to thicken it up, but extra real cheese is a must. Also, make both bags of dough at the same time and in the double up make it in a deep dish. Do this after half a bottle of bourbon and add fresh basil, garlic, pepperoni, mushrooms, crushed red pepper, black pepper, oregano, and... what was I doing???
Oh, yeah, another variation is to top it with any weird leftovers you have in the `fridge, or make a breakfast pizza with sausage or bacon and some scrambled eggs!
Helpful Hint: place the mixed dough in a metal pan with a lid and place it on your gas stove between the burners where the pilot light is to help raise up the dough!

B2 crash in Guam = Toxic Stealth!

The recent crash of a B2 stealth bomber in Guam could be yet another toxic tragedy. The radar absorbing materials coating the plane's outer surfaces is dangerous when burned and inhaled.
The news stories included phrases such as, "A crowd gathered..." if anything these people should have been running away and seeking shelter indoors, grab those dusty plastic sheets and duct tape and get at it sealing up your winter home in... Guam.
The case of Mr. Frost and his widow in Las Vegas is another tragedy of the military-industrial complex... the story is criminal.
Since the Clinton administration, and continuing to the present day, the "Area 51" base in Groom Lake Nevada is exempt from even the most basic environmental protections - because of national security secrecy.

Robo-Cindy, Vicki & CACI

Cindy McCain is very pissed off at the NY Times.
She is also apparently a Terminator robot from the future!
Alleged Washington D.C. "lobbyist" Vicki Iseman has (had?) some good clients; Telemundo, PAXTV and CACI International among others.
CACI, as many of you know, is accused of training interrogators in the War on Terror including those fun-loving kids at Abu Ghraib and CIA Black Sites around the world. Some would characterize them as torturers, but I leave that to the experts and their former employees who are slowly revealing just how far we have wandered away from being the moral center of the universe and have become little more than a disinterested observer to such ephemeral ideas like 'Human Rights'.

Check out this video: Robo-Cindy?

UPDATE: Vicki Iseman graduated in 1990 from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a degree in 'elementary education', the perfect field to 'educate' politicians, who are so like elementary school students, naive and simple nose-pickers. Perhaps it's time to go back to 3rd grade and actually put that education to good use instead of trying to game the system and ruin people?

Atlas Shrugged trailer...?

I love this fabricated Atlas Shrugged trailer for the film coming out of the Ayn Rand book, it uses the audio book read by Edward Hermann, brilliant! 5 stars, I laughed, I cried...
