Interesting enough, this plotline was never explored for Marissa on The O.C. (don't call it that).

Jackass: The Online Movie (Movie?) (Wait what?)


I would like to start this by saying I loved both Jackass and Jackass: Number Two. I even thought there was a lot to discuss about it - if it was art, if it was a movie, why critics praise it as a film but it is dismissed as garbage as television.

But this week it was announced that.... (from hollywoodreporter.com) (i got the link from drudge) (i am honestly ashamed of all the links that got me here).....

In a radical departure from the traditional movie business model, Paramount Pictures Digital Entertainment and MTV New Media are co-producing "Jackass 2.5," a sequel to its two-time boxoffice hit that will skip multiplexes entirely. Instead, "2.5" will be offered online for free over a two-week span beginning Dec. 19 courtesy of Blockbuster and its new online property Movielink, which will exclusively host the 64-minute film during that period. The movie will be made available at blockbuster.jackassworld.com.

So Jackass 2.5 will be the first online movie. Let us pontificate on this.

First off, let's consider the business meeting that pitched this idea.

"Why don't we send over those idiot kids to do their dumb stunts and make themselves look like birdbrains for another hour and we'll put it online! As long as those morons don't kill themselves we'll have another hit! And if those dopey imbeciles do, well, then screw those nincompoops!"

This event, sure, is a landmark moment in film distribution. But, c'mon Paramount, first off, we see Jackassian clips all the time on Youtube - you are basically splicing 64 minutes of them together.

Sure, there is a Jackaesthetic that will thread the movie together (my favorite theme is vomiting cameramen). But how will this Jackaesthetic be perceived when it is watched over the same medium as other amateur films [ed. note" films!?!? I guess I must?], some which we surely be better than the Jackass, umm, performance pieces. Will Jackass get the same respect as a film, which it most certainly did in its last outing, when distributed over the internet?*

My guess is no - I think the charm of Jackass was seeing it in celluloid. The elevation of the material emboldens the choices of the studio and the, uhh, writers, directors, and actors. Wow.

A landmark moment sure. I believe that Jackass and Jackass: Number Two are movies. But what elevates, what is essentially a longer, unrated t.v. episode, to that status?

Sorry to dismiss Jackass, but I believe the real landmark moment will be when major studio distributes a studio picture online. Something written, something directed, something acted. Unfortunately, this indicates to me that I do feel a distinction of high and low art.

"You see, this is my life! It always will be! Nothing else! Just us, the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark!... All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for leeches placed on my EYEBALL."




*Metacritic Score for Jackass: Number 2 - 66.... and according to New York Times reviewer Nathan Lee... "Debased, infantile and reckless in the extreme, this compendium of body bravado and malfunction makes for some of the most fearless, liberated and cathartic comedy in modern movies."

Fuck Greg Oden


Some of you may know that I was considering moving to Portland, Oregon earlier this year. The plan was to move there, become a huge Blazers fan, and hope that the overhyped Pacific Northwest division rivalry of Durant vs. Oden would actually become the next great story in the NBA.

Well, I guess that wasn't enough to actually convince me to move, but rather blame than instincts and call myself a "wuss" (cue echos "uss uss uss uss"), I'm so glad I didn't move.

Reason #1) The Seattle Supersonics are probably going to move to Oklahoma City (I honestly don't know if that's in Oklahoma or Kansas... I'm going to assume its in Oklahoma).

Reason #2) Gred Oden's rookie season ended before it even started with a leg injury. Oh yeah, one of his legs is longer than the others, and deformities like that will probably fuck you up in a sport that sorta requires healthy legs.

but most importantly, Reason #3) Dwight Howard.

(Part 1)
Why the FUCK would anyone care about Greg Oden when Dwight Howard is not even 22 yet. Have you seen this guy? Not his picture on his NBA.com stat page - I'm talking about seeing this guy's body in action... each of his shoulders is the size of an office chair. He even had an incredible move at the Slam Dunk competition.




(There will always be dunks.)


(Part 2)

But let's forget who has a better NBA center's body for a moment, let's just examine these two players mentally. You've got Dwight Howard, who has never missed an NBA game (he was the last highschool-to-NBA player), who says this...

"I want to be one of the greatest players to play basketball."

And meanwhile, the overhyped, #1 pick in this year's draft Greg Oden, who says this...

"I like dentistry," Oden said at the Final Four. "I just went to the dentist. It was nice" and then "I wanted to be a dentist back in the day."

(Part 3)
At this point I have to pay respect to The Onion...

Greg Oden On Final Four Appearance: 'I'm Happier Than I've Been In 30 Years'


(Conclusion)

I'm sorry, I don't care if this is his quirky sense of humor, which I know he has. Let assholes like me make jokes about wanting to be a dentist. I'm an asshole. You are a basketball player. Win a championship and you can pretend you are Shaq. Or just go to dentist school and become an asshole. But let me warn you this... no one wants to go to a 7 foot dentist who ages faster than Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade.

The War Wages On



According to BENAZIR BHUTTO in today's nytimes...

"It is dangerous to stand up to additional plugins, but more dangerous not to. The moment has come for the Western democracies to show us in their actions, and not just in their rhetoric, which side they are on."

Are We In On The Joke Yet? Oh, Myspace!


First off, I'm not sure who to blame on this one. It could very well be the very same plugins I've been complaining about (see post below).

Is it possible, though, that this is some sort of viral campaign? That this ad completely encapsulates what we are all thinking about myspace and then winks at us? I mean, here I am talking about how shitty this ad is, and yet if someone asks me tomorrow "when does The Golden Compass come out?" I will not only know the answer, I'll want to keep talking about The Golden Compass's shitty ads.

Or maybe it's just a shitty ad. My money is on the plugins though.

Waite-ing to Get Boned

In today's frontpage of The New York Times, an article about the future of abstinence education focuses somewhat on the "public face" of a group called Virginity Rules, a now high school graduate named Jami Waite. First off, I must identify the silliness of her un-pornstar name. Thank goodness she wasn't the child of Reverend Timothy Bones. And while the "e" should really be at the end of the Jami (seriously how many different ways does one need to spell the same name), we'll excuse her because she's just so goddamn cute.

In fact, she's so cute, she sort of reminds me of a young Tara Reid.

Funny enough, Tara Reid wanted to waite in the movie American Pie, and after she caved in to carnal temptation, she broke up Thomas Ian Nicholas, who was star of Rookie of the Year. Don't worry I'm not going to get to Kevin Bacon. But after they have sex, they break up not wanting to carry on a long distance relationship. Anyway, it really hurts the T.I.N.-man's feelings in American Pie 2, and this is probably one of the reasons they shouldn't have had sex.

Tara was also a nymphomaniac in Big Lebowski and had her first onscreen orgasm as a high school senior in American Pie. Maybe Waite is the public face for this very reason? Provide hope for all the Tara Reids? "I'll promise to wait until marriage to suck your dick for a thousand dollars." Maybe sex before marriage means you'll be engaging in it compulsively and without joy. Kinda sounds like Tara's purpose in Hollywood, no?

I think the message of having a Tara Reid-lookalike as the face of the Abstinence movement is about all these things. Look at the career of Tara Reid and read it as the consequences of premarital sex. And I kinda see the point: having sex too soon in movies can be disastrous for your career. See the parallels? I'm renting Havoc tonight.

If you want to learn more, the hotline (is it a hotline if its about abstinence?) for Virginity Rules 2.0 is 866-WAIT-NOW. I can't waite.



Also, this is my favorite part of the article....

“You have to look at why sex was created,” Eric Love, the director of the East Texas Abstinence Program, which runs Virginity Rules, said one day, the sounds of Christian contemporary music humming faintly in his Longview office. “Sex was designed to bond two people together.”

To make the point, Mr. Love grabbed a tape dispenser and snapped off two fresh pieces. He slapped them to his filing cabinet and the floor; they trapped dirt, lint, a small metal bolt. “Now when it comes time for them to get married, the marriage pulls apart so easily,” he said, trying to unite the grimy strips. “Why? Because they gave the stickiness away.”

I think I get what he's saying... don't tape a broken condom back together.



Tara Reid... A Reason to Wait

So young and full of potential. But look what happens when you don't abstain....
Hardly an angel.

Don't think of it as a wardrobe malfunction. Think of it as a sign.

No you're the greatest, Tara. The greatest sinner I know.

The boob job botchery... another malfunction?

Lucky for you, Tara, God forgives...
Enjoy your second chance.

stop eating burgers!

i just found an experimental bag of doritos today called "Doritos X-13D" - the flavor is for you to guess. anyway, i tried one and the taste was so familiar. was it buffalo sauce with blue cheese? nope. some type of mix of cheddar? nope. it was, get this, a WHOPPER dorito.




it didn't just kinda taste like a whopper - it WAS a whopper. you could taste the mayo, the mustard, the pickles and the onions. i don't know how this could be a "cool" idea for a chip, as some of my coworkers felt. one could imply that a whopper was just the same combinations of a few flavors and chemicals but with a different texture. that's just fucked up. maybe one day burger king will fuck up and have burgers that taste like fries, fries that taste like coke, and coke that tastes like burgers. if i were still in college i'd end this entry with something condescending like "would we even notice?" fuck yeah we would. but that's why there is no room for variation in flavor.

YESSS! i'm soooooooo excited (and not scared)



indiana is so hot right now. the guy is 65 years old in july, which means he's getting back on a horse (hopefully) while most people his age are getting ready to retire. and he looks gooood. he's a year younger than bob dylan but you'd never think'it. my impression is that this picture is a pretty good reflection of what ford's been up to for the past 10 years (sans joint).

anyway, here are some possibilities for indiana jones 4

Indiana Jones and the Search for the Jesus Snake

Spielberg realizes the profitability in making movies that can be marketed to church groups (Evan Almighty, Chronicles of Narnia, Phat Girlz). In this adventure, the Nazis realize that if they find Jesus, they can harness the power of God and conquer the world. Jones is asked by the U.S. government to find Jesus before the Nazis do, and with his bravado he does. Only problem is.... Jesus has returned to earth in the form of a snake! Indiana must conquer his fear of snakes and Jones and Jesus must come together to save the world. Shia LaBeouf stars as Jesus Snake.



Indiana Jones and Red Clock of Destiny

After the destruction of temple in Canyon of the Crescent Moon, the world is convinced Indiana has died and he uses this opportunity to live in hiding for fear of Nazi assassination. He has given up his adventures and spends his days relaxing on his ranch when he befriends a courageous young boy, Montana Shepard, who discovers Indiana's secret past. Convinced he's too old for adventures, Indiana disappoints the child. That is, until Indiana Jones discovers that the Communists have obtained a weapon of mass destruction known as the Clock of Destiny - an Incan wristwatch that is capable of turning cities into dust. The only problem is, they do not know how to use it! Montana convinces Indiana out of retirement for one last adventure! Tom Cruise stars as Stalin.



Indiana Jones and the Island of Lost Heroes

Indiana faces his biggest challenge yet! On a voyage through Bermuda, Indiana gets lost and finds a deserted island...or is it!?! A native tribe is led by John McClane, Rocky Balboa, The Terminator, Ellen Ripley, and John J. Rambo who must fight Aliens who live inside the Volcano. Only problem is, the tribe has captured a Predator, who Indiana knows, must be free in order to battle the Aliens. Indiana must pick a side in this epic adventure of the meaning of friendship. Frank Stallone stands in as Rambo.

sunset on mars

i'm a real sucker for mars news. i recently came across this photograph (or is it a picture?) of sunset on mars, which i think is pretty incredible.



anyway, the latest news on the mission to mars is that NASA is having to deal with major ethical questions. according to the AP, one of these questions is "How do you cope with sexual desire among healthy young men and women during a mission years long?" my boss suggested sending stephen hawking, since "he probably can't have sex" and "who would be attracted to him?" wow. maybe he's right. but if we've learned anything from the movies "Mission to Mars," "Red Planet," or really just "2001: A Space Oddysey," any ambitious mission like this will be subject to "go terribly awry," and become a "a catastrophic and mysterious disaster."

so what does this mean? even if you send someone up that is terribly attractive, something is bound to go wrong. maybe space radiation will cure stephen hawking into a handsome horny genius. also, why would you send someone on a mission like this with the same voice as HAL 9000? it really just doesn't make any sense. if you send stephen hawking, we'll be in deep shit.

my recommendation?

EIGHT POINTS??? he couldn't even get into double digits and he is likely this season's MVP winner. i think this is indicative of the disappointment we should all feel for this year's regular season (the playoffs so far have been excellent). dirk can be mvp for the regular season because the competition was so dismal - this mavs team would not be 67-15 if the western conference was what it used to be.

but to more important matters! 8 points fell shy of the 25 needed for Nihal to win the bet, which means he has to post on Cosmodrome how thatcrazyrapmusic is a superior blog. For those of you who don't know, Cosmodrome has a bunch of writers (kinda like dailykos) while no one writer is representative of the entire blog. but Nihal put cosmodrome's reputation on the line and he fell short. bow to me, cosmodrome!

as for you, mvp dirk nowitzki: hang your head in shame. it's gonna be a long summer.

the bet is on!



well blog/NBA fans - today we have something exciting for you! I made a bet with Cosmodrome's Nihal over Dirk Nowitzki's performance tonight. If Dirk scores fewer than 25 points tonight, Nihal will have to write a post about how TCRM is a superior blog (that's right... i abbreviated it. i told you today is exciting!).

Bill Simmons wrote a column today about how Golden State fans are the best in the playoffs right now, which makes me even more confident that I have this one in the bag. I also think Stephen Jackson is going to play insane tonight (he's covering Dirk) and that the Mavs are not going to find any momentum. I hope I can catch the end of the game... I am seeing spiderman 3 at midnight (<--oh wait that was about me! i promised this blog will never be about me!).

Oh, and if i lose the bet (i won't), I have to sing Nihal's praises on TCRM. Even if I lose (i won't), that'll be fun too. I have some BIG plans for that.

Nihal.... what if he scores exactly 25? I think that he has to go over for you to win.

Good luck tonight GSW! Good luck tonight Spidey! Good luck tonight fans of rap music!

bill simmons's cruelty, part 2

bill simmons imagines what will happen between NBA commissioner David Stern and Dirk Nowitzki at the MVP award ceremony...


--Stern: "Well, Dirk, maybe the playoffs didn't turn out the way you planned, but for 82 meaningless games during one of the worst seasons of my 23-year tenure, you were the best player in a terrible league. Unfortunately, voting for the award happens right after the regular season, so voters weren't able to factor in your complete meltdown in Round 1 against Golden State. You didn't just fail to step up like an MVP should, you whined and complained the entire series, disgraced your teammates and embarrassed your fans. Not since David Hasselhoff has America been so embarrassed by a German. I don't know whether to hand you this trophy or smash it over your head. Lucky for you, this is being televised, so I can only hand you the trophy and congratulate you on the 2006-07 Most Valuable Player Award. I'm going to leave now so I can throw up." --Dirk Nowitzki (taking the trophy): "Thank you, Mr. Commissioner."


wow man that is cruel. but i must say this was one of the worst basketball seasons i can remember. maybe that is what is making the NBA playoffs so exciting right now: EVERY team was awful. even the mavs, with their impressive record this year, never got through to me. josh howard? jerry stackhouse? jason terry? i can't wait for golden state to destroy them (maybe not tonight in dallas, but definitely in oakland).

omg dennis kucinich's wife is bangin'



there should totally be an award show for "biggest winners in marriage." it would be based on the ugliness and personality of the man and how well he does in "lockin' down a hottie." i am SO curious as to how good looking keith van horn's wife is. if anyone can find a picture PLEASE link me!

i'd like to make this fancier but...

this is for kati... okay so if keys on a keyboard were assigned a number value, this is what Pi would sound like...

enjoy pi fans!

Is Risk for Nerds?

I love playing Risk. What is more fun than competing with 1-5 other friends in a game of world conquest? The game demands a lot of abstract thinking and if you try to conquer too many territories with too few armies, what will appear to be a conquest will become an embarrassment. Protect the borders of South America! Leave one army behind! I'm so excited for my upcoming game against fellow Risk fans Peter and Chris.

Two days ago, however, I was mocked by some of my closer friends for being so passionate about Risk. When did a game of world conquest become dorky? I've decided that I can't play Risk and keep a blog. While I recognize that neither is "cool," I am comfortable accepting that the two of them could be as volatile to my reputation as Dungeons and Dragons...WHICH, I might add, I have never played!

Risk or Blog? Must....choose....one.... AHHHHHHHHH Screw it! I'm a Risk-playing Blogger!!! If that makes me That Crazy Risk Blogger so be it!!!

"By the way, I seriously considered giving him [Tim Duncan] the MVP for helping to rid the world of Joey Crawford last weekend. So long, Joey. Don't forget to downgrade from first class to coach on your flight back to hell." -Bill Simmons

Guns vs. MORE Guns?

"People are a little more cautious if somebody might have a gun there," the GOP presidential candidate told Politico reporters Tuesday. "A concealed gun carried by a responsible person -- that might have ended the problem that they had at Virginia Tech with one person being killed or two people being killed."

responsible person? i elect this guy...




wears glasses? honors american icon? makes sure not to shave too often to keep skin smooth?

give this man a gun people!

ben stiller does a pretty good bruce willis (brune stillis?)

i'm not a big ben stiller fan, especially after reading a great article about him by david denby, but i must say, i'm awfully impressed by his bruce willis imitation in "Die Hard 12: Die Hungry" from the Ben Stiller Show. then again, he's playing a meat-headed tough guy, and how many times have we seen that from him?




oh and in case you are interested, here is owen wilson's response letter to denby's article
