Gome of the Week
Alan Spencer, the man who created Sledgehammer! (see movie of the week 07//28/02)sent me this email this week:
"Everyone from 'Sledge Hammer!' kept working, including moi. Visit www.sledgehammeronline.com for updates on a proposed feature film. Feel free to post on the boards as well with your unique perceptions."
Dude, my "unique perceptions" were that I think the show is hilarious. Lighten up. Good luck with the movie. I'd go see it. But only if it stars the original Sledge.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
The Diabetic Superhero - Apparently there's more than just the one we hang with.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Tough Guys Don't Dance (1987)
A true case of a damn fine book being made into a pretty mediocre film. Tough Guys Don't Dance is one of Norman Mailers best(and shortest) books and apparently is was succesful enough for these people to let him write and direct the film.
Mailer proves that he should stick to the novel, although this movie isn't that bad. It's just severely tedious in parts and Ryan O'Neal has such a bad hangover throughout most of the film that's it's a bit painful to watch.
Nothing like waking up after a blackout with blood all over the back seat of your car and a tattoo that you didn't have the last time you were coherent.
Dude, I've been there.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Supersuckers - Motherfuckers Be Trippin' (2003)
The Supersuckers are back and ready to rock. I've been following these guys since I was a sophomore in high school and they almost always bring the good shit.
Highlight tracks include "Pretty Fucked Up" and "Bubblegum and Beer."
I just saw these guys at Borders (!) and it was sweet. Nice guys. I might go bowling with them tomorrow. No shit.
