‘ Uneasy lies the head who wears a clown ‘

October 12, 2007 2 comments

I just watched a movie: 1408. I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but I’m not only $ challenged due to my flex work ethic, but I’m also cheap. This might explain why I got the flick free from the library. When I reserved it, I was thinking John Cusack movie and totally forgot 1408 was based on a Stephen King story.

My guess is King, whose work is best characterized using a word that fits his genre, that word being hack, titled this based on the amount of books he writes every year. I think, he should’ve stopped at 1407 or better yet, 7. King barfs out the same cliches & smears them all over whatever surface is handy, and usually chucks in a clown. Luckily for him, those English speakers who actually still read, like paying for that warm and fuggy feeling his one note talent provides.

I think Stephen King is simply awful. BTW Stevie, what amazing source of strength kept a clown out of this one? I bet that would be a great story. Again, I’m willing to admit I’m envious. But would I really want to be an author who makes a lot of money writing the same crap over and over, literally, a literary ad nauseum?

Oh fickle Fate! I have not been tested in such a way, as I have with the so called misbegotten friendships I allude to often. In fact, of my 3 good remaining friends, two read this blog with some frequency. Their links appear to the right>>> I tend to not refer to them too specifically, mainly because I like them. I like John Cusack too. After a bit of a break in his work, Cusack has a few big movies coming out soon. I wish him the best, because there is also some overdue Oscar buzz for him: break a leg dude.

As for King ( probably a Red Sawx fan too ), please stop writing. Maybe clown school?

I just saw the weekly Top 10 rated TV Shows based on viewers. Ha ha ha ha ha ha [ hear DeNiro in Cape Fear ] — Crime & medical shows. Medical crime shows. Football. AND Dancing with the Stars? TWICE! Americans are truly dumbasses. Holey Moley! The TV Top 10 for the Internet Movie Database members is much different, indicating a much more eclectic & discriminating taste. Me? oh sure I am a member.

I also have a TV show idea. A coroner, into ballroom dancing, who moonlights as a party clown. His clown name? Sammy Sew Sew. The show? Cut Up Cop! WOW! it’s all ready number 9!!!!! It’s his sidekick though, will get the numbers. A black ex-NFL player who is a pre-op transexual dance instructor & martial arts expert. Genius, huh? Hack that, Stephen King. . ..

The Ebonic Woman

August 22, 2007 Leave a comment

In the upcoming August 27th issue of the TV Guide, a columnist asks a good question. The words used to ask the question are vomit inducing. The topic is the new Bionic Woman. The question is, why not a black woman in the role. The barf factor is the word (?) sistergirlfriend. What? is this the German version of TV Guide! AND shouldn’t that be spelled ‘ sistah…?’

I agree. I think the Bionic Woman should be an Afri-asian-hispanic Lesbian dwarf with a speech impediment. But give me a break with the perverting of language to make the point. Sports talk guys are handling that job quite nicely, we don’t need other media types piling on that heap of ignorance.

This ought to create a stir among the superficial & self deceptive, but people are mostly attracted to people who look like them. Next comes bank account or ability to bring home the bacon & keep the troglodyte the next cave down from dropping in and taking it away. Along with the Mrs.

Due to my oft mentioned laziness, I am not doing any research, so I’ll just say, last time I looked, Caucasians are still the majority in the USA. Television people have noticed this, as have their advertisers, and they are guided by it. While we’d all love to see Whoopi Goldberg play Marilyn Monroe in a new bio-pic: If Marilyn had Lived. . .. OK bad example. That might be huge.[ ©2007 Jukeofurl ] Imagine the conspiracy theories on that one!

I’m attracted to Rashida Jones & she doesn’t look a bit like me. But she can bring home the Chateaubriand anytime. I know that’s hedging because her mom is Peggy Lipton. The thought of her dad Quincy Jones reviving my music career, doesn’t enter into it. Rashida is good looking. If her dad wants to help me, bonus round. Apologies to Condoleeza Rice, I like overbites but I’m not into Republicans.

Maybe I’m no judge of talent: I thought Hallie Berry was fine in Catwoman. The screenplay was crap. But she still looked like Hallie Berry. Where is the problem? Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Once one gets to broader racial features which haven’t been blended through miscegenation, though, I’m not so physically attracted. It’s biological and believe me, the feeling is mutual. No sistergirlfriend wants to be my mrs.girlfriend. It’s called survival instinct. You could look it up. No conforming to stereotype please.

I might not be doing this blog for awhile. I’ll be working on a screenplay. I guarantee you though, if I have anything to say about the casting, Paula Patton is my Marilyn Monroe. She’s better looking than the original too, JFK would’ve loved her. . ..
