More from the makers of Spermemax
Topic: Spam
Spermamax improves your sperm motility.

The funny thing is that usually they misspell the dirty words to get through the filters, but I assume by motility they mean mobility, which sounds hilarious. My sperm's mobility? Come on, now.

Paxson is on target
Topic: Bulls
Paxson conceded his team is made up of role players and expressed disappointment that some have an agenda that steers them away from the game plan.

"I don't think the agendas are out of selfishness or anything like that," he said.

"I think most of these guys really want to win, but they're trying to do too much on their own thinking they can do it, and we don't have those types of players.

"I think they're out there trying to do too much instead of relying on the team concept and the things that have gotten them through."


Exactly what I think.

Brazil
Topic: Movies
I JUST finished watching this movie, the Criterion Version, the one that the director intended.

Here is what it's about, the cliff notes version:

1984 mixed with a little Noir-ish LA Confidential mixed with a little bit of office space mixed in with a little of a french movie called Delicatessen.

That's as close as I can get in a cliff notes version.

One thing though is that it's old, it's from 1985 and some of the stuff is kind of eerie to see and watch in a post-9/11 time.

For example:

"Doesn't it bother you, the things you do in Information Retrieval?

I suppose you would rather have terrorists?"

It's really creepy. It's also creepy how terrorist attacks are normal and most people just shrug them off and go on their way. What's even weirder is that this is a comedy.

I certainly felt the spirit of 1984 (more the book, the movie I thought was just OK) in this movie, right into the end and everything.

Very bizarre though, and I'm not quite sure I entirely "got it," though that may be part of the deal here.

Nonetheless, I'm glad Tollo recommended it. Very original.

Narnia in Guatemala?
Topic: Movies
Turns out that some of the special effects in the movie (350 scenes, which makes me wonder what the Guatemalan paper means exactly by "scenes") were shot/created in Guatemala by a company called Studio C.

For those that read Spanish:

http://www.elperiodico.com.gt/look/article.tpl?IdLanguage=13&IdPublication=1&NrIssue=537&NrSection=1&NrArticle=19065

They also did work for Ring 2 and Chronicles of Riddick. Check them out at http://www.studioc-online.com/

That's pretty cool.

Skiles is on the money
Topic: Bulls
They lost again last night and their effort sucked. I was reminded why no one likes the NBA anymore, it's just a bunch of guys arguing with the refs and trying to look good for the crowd.

But the Bulls weren't that way last season, I got hooked after the opening game and now I can barely watch them.

What is it?

Here is Skiles:

"I wish I could articulate it better. There are definitely things that are different in our key players since I've known them. It's clear we are struggling. During one stretch [the Bobcats] got four shots at the basket. They outhustled us around the basket. That's our formula. We have a healthy list of things we need to do."

I think it's the fact that those young players are focusing on their own struggles (Gordon, Chandler) and it's because of that that they aren't looking at the big, team picture. You can't play aggressive defense when the only thing going through your head is "Why aren't I starting? Why aren't my shots going in? Do I have to prove something after signing such a big contract?"

All these individual concerns are overshadowing the team. This isn't THE problem, but I'm sure it has to do with it.

I also liked this bit:

If Eddie Basden were a Knick, he probably would have started here Wednesday, where he went to college. Knicks coach Larry Brown has a tradition of starting players when they play in their hometowns or college towns. But Basden was inactive for the game. So did coach Scott Skiles give that any thought? "I gave it some thought until he missed the first bus (to the arena for extra practice for reserves)," Skiles said.

My man.

Reading
Topic: Books
I am about halfway through James Frey's My Friend Leonard, and I feel incredibly lucky to be reading such a great story in the city in which it takes place. So lucky, in fact, that I just pulled my blinds way up, on both windows (something I haven't done in a while) and turned off the lights in my apartment so that I can see the Chicago skyline as the sun goes down. The Hancock building is right there in my window, and I live in chicago, the best city in America. The city where this great book is set.

Fantastic.

I'm lucky.

Lucky like I was to read A Moveable Feast, Velador de Noche Sonador de Dia (and meet the author), Paris no se acaba nunca, and The Sun also rises all in Paris.

That's just it, I'm very fortunate.
