Well it is new year. Been crap so far. Sorting out bills and looking for work. That sums it up.
I hope 2012 is decent but based on the rhetoric coming from politicians I fear not. I also have a feeling that the economy is crawling along but it is not really kick starting yet.
I’ve been writing some stuff for The Beacon which is pretty great. it’s a local online newspaper that serves as a viable alternative to our crappy St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Patch has a new editor who I am hoping is nice. I also am still doing some foraging for new assignments from other sources.
As far as TV goes I am watching some new shows, Alcatraz, Person of Interest and 2 Broke Girls. I also managed to get Showtime free for 3 months so we’ll see what crap they have. I am still catching up on The Hour and Whitechapel and I really need to see the new season of Sherlock/
So many people have asked for my favortie movies of the year. I finally organized them in alphabetical order.
Midnight In Paris
My Week With Marilyn
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
I really loved The Artist. I also liked Hugo. but I was thrilled ot ahve such a great year for movies about movies with The Artiat, Hugo and My Week With Marilyn.
I saw Shame at the film Festival here in November. It is pretty dreary and the acting is really good in it. Michael Fassbinder is terrific in it and shows off his schlong a lot. he’s a sex addict. This movie does not shed sex addicts in a very good light. But it is still really powerful.
Murray, my old refrigerator is kaput. It kept freezing everything in it. I thought it was the thermostat but alas I was wrong. I called my landlord to fix it and then my landlord graciously bought a new one. Wow. I was totally not expecting that.
Apparently it is easier to get a new one then fix an old one. I have been giving myself fits trying t name this one and finally settled on Jarvis.
I still need a new DVD player and maybe a laptop and a new TV. Crap.
This refrigerator looks exactly like the old one but it is a G.E. Damn right it’s made in America,
I feel sad that my old fridge is being recycled for scrap. I was hoping Indian Jones could hide in it.
I just got the Kid Savant record but have not heard it yet. I plan on getting to it later today.
I am excited about the new Air record.
Pulp is back but won’t play near me so I guess I am screwed.
There is also a new Blur record coming out which will be very odd to hear as well.
I just found out that LMFAO are related to the Gordy family. Scary.
I am still sad about Etta James. Man she could sing.
I could really care less aoubt the Super Bowl this year but I think I am pulling for the Giants since Eli Manning seems nice and I hate the Pats. Brady seems
like a dick and the Pats cheated when they beat the Rams all those years ago. I am happy to see Tim Tebow is not in the game sinc ethat guy is f’n a pain in the ass. I mean really.
But the best part of the game will be the commercials. I also think it will be great to see Madonna at halftime. I think her big ‘comeback’ starts there.
I have no desire to see The Phantom Menace in 3D. If you are going to fix the movie George then maybe you could make it good this time. It’s so terrible. now it is terrible in 3D.
It’s back in 3D too. Really. I hate that f’n Celine Dion song. If it makes a comeback there’ll be a rumble.
It’s the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster. I recommend reading aubt it rather then watching a crap movie about it.
Well I think I am out of steam for this entry. Got so much other stuff to do. Urgh!
