The original ending of Seven had Morgan Freeman fiddling with a puzzle box just like this one, unable to open it, which is why Brad Pitt keeps screaming "What's in the box?!" impatiently. True story.

Can we all just admit that Scarface is not a good movie? Especially compared to The Godfather, among others. But it is actually a relatively mediocre and somewhat uninteresting film, made even more boring by its constant reference and parody over the years. Yes, "say hello to my little friend," yes piles and piles of cocaine. I am tired of it.

The weirdest thing about that Jack in the Box video is that there's a guy at the drive thru window and he's probably sitting there thinking "where are my fucking fries?"

Louis CK WAS robbed! Especially in the writing category. Whatevs. I think when Jim Parsons and Melissa McCarthy win over those other talented people that the Emmys can just go fuck themselves. I mean, I loved McCarthy's speech and sincerity, and I'm glad they don't pick some rail thin person every year, but they're picking her and Mike and Molly (fuck that show) over Amy Poehler or Tina Fey, who are HANDS DOWN the funniest women on TV? That's a fucking joke. As for Michael Scott, which is actually why I started this comment (phew), I actually think that the reason more people do not feel the way you do (about him being too big and one-note and somewhat unbearable) is because of Steve Carell and his ability to put just enough empathy into Michael Scott that we never leave him. The greatest difference between Michael Scott and David Brent is that Brent is completely and utterly unlovable, while Michael Scott provides the inkling of humanity that gave the show more heart than the British Office ever did. Although whether that makes better or worse TV is not up to me to decide, as the British Office is perfect and the American Office is a different beast altogether. Sorry for this long comment. It got away from me. TL;DR

To be fair to Bachmann (I guess?), I actually think that conversation probably DID happen. I don't think Bachmann is so dumb as to think "no one will find out this is insane" but most likely a Bachmann devotee (who, let's face it, are not the ripest grapes (what?)), actually did come up to her, convinced that a vaccine of some kind had given her child a disability. Think of how long and easily the autism-vaccine myth has persisted. So Bachmann seized on it, knowing that was were she scored the most points against Perry, and spoke without thinking. Still though, she's insane.

Oh man, it was really weird to buy the director's cut of Donnie Darko, only to discover that the original DVD, and all the original deleted scenes and commentary in bits and pieces still ended up being a superior version. Which shouldn't make sense, but then you pop in Southland Tales and it kind of does? But it gets very weird for me when someone loves the theatrical cut of Blade Runner and has never seen the director's cut and I'm like 'Whaaaaa?" Cool story, bro.

Flannel Animal has all kinds of paper dolls and he's a really talented and nice guy, so you should definitely click over and check them out. I mean, you're not checking them out because he's a talented and nice guy, but because the dolls are funny. And all your favorite shows (some shows not included)! I would make the worst publicist.

I think everyone can agree that Kenard is awful. It's weird. The code thing is most evident when Stringer's people break the Sunday morning truce, although I think the entire Marlo/Omar feud demonstrates the kind of chaotic evil at work in Marlo's organization and how it filtered into the lives of everyone in West Baltimore, including little shits like Kenard. And I am pretty much just saying the same thing that you said but I am saying it again because isn't it fun just to sit and think about how great The Wire is and now I want to go back and rewatch it again.

August 3, 2011 on What Did Stringer Bell Do Wrong?
Huh. I don't think I agree with you re: Omar's code. He held so closely to it that he risked his life to avenge Butchie because he had to bring justice. Omar's downfall was just shitty luck, ultimately. I don't think killing Sevino even counts as breaking his code, as Sevino was involved with the Marlo organization. Especially compared to his treatment of Slim Charles and that other dude he cornered. Omar held to his code through it all, but time just ran out. Also, dissecting the wire is awesome!

Avon Barksdale = Vito Corleone Stringer Bell = Sonny Corleone That's it. That is all you need to know about what Stringer Bell did wrong. Also, while we're on the subject, Marlo Stanfield = Michael Corleone. Motherfucker is merciless!

Did no one tell them that teaser trailers are actually not two and a half minutes but usually more like 30 seconds? Also, with great power comes I wish Martin Sheen was in the whole movie (spoiler alert, he's not). Actually, I just wish they'd make a movie about Spiderman as a divorced old man, played by Martin Sheen
