Sunrise. Sunday Morning.

1). I am slowly getting drunk this morning on a nice bottle of Syrah. I plan on washing that down later with some St. Pauli Girl. I guess I have a touch of meancholia. I was meandering thru YouTube this morning and stumbled across this video by Elton John - it's kind of a nice wine-drunk-sunday-morning-video:

2). I took Cindi to see the movie "Bug" last night - is was a damn train wreck! "Bug" is astonishingly bad, it's unremittingly bad, it's indescribably bad, it's insatiably bad, it's hilariously bad! Seriously, "Bug" is bad movie making on a Biblical scale.

We went to see it because it stars Ashley Judd...we wanted to see her naked. Well, we did see her naked (at the very end), but by then the only thing we were thinking was: "Ashley needs to shave her beaver, Mrs. Cleaver."

The only saving grace in "Bug" is the performance by Harry Connick Jr.

After it was over a small group of us gathered in front of the empty screen and decided to tell all our friends that "Bug" is the best film we have ever seen and that they must see it as soon as possible - then they will feel as ripped-off and foolish as we feel (well, on second thought, maybe that's a cruel idea). "Bug" is that bad!

3). Not long ago I finished reading the best book I have ever read: "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides. I'll will write a review of it some time.

4). Current reading:

The Colossus of Maroussi - Henry Miller

Winesburg, Ohio - Sherwood Anderson

Henry and June: the unexprugated diary - Anais Nin

Thanks for the heads up about Ashley's latest bug. Sometimes she gets a decent script, sometimes not. Damn. I'll save my ten bucks, popcorn and sodie money, and my $3.00 a gallon gas for a more deservin' flick.

While you're at JJD, you might want to check out Archetypes for Writers, by Jennifer van Bergen. It is an excellent read and hands on book of theory. I may try to do a review, but I ain't very good at that sort of thing. So if anyone else is out there familiar with her work, drop me a line.

It is fun being devious to a crowd of wannabe moviegoers.Hah!

My best,

thanks mr. hill,
i will definitely looking in to the van Bergen book - thanks for the tip.

i haven't seen many negitive "Bug" reviews - and that worries me. i think most "professional" reviewers want to come off as "hip" on this one. i'm just being honest about the damn thing...

thanks again for your comment,

Thanks for the heads up.
I have to say and I know you are going to think this is a bit looney but... everytime someone tells me a movie is awful I have to see it, I think it may be something like rubber necking at an accident. Don't know but it is true. I was told once by my sister in law not to see "Groundhog Day". She said it was the worst movie ever. Damn if it didn't take just that to make me rent it. And I have to say I love that movie! Ok, so anyway just wanted to say thank you and I will let you know if I agree. LOL

Nae ;0)
