Assassins Creed II : Xbox 360

Video Game on the Christmas list

Assassins Creed II is one of those video games that comes along every now and then, and sells you from the moment you see the commercial. The graphics are simply insane. The story line looks clutch. You also know, just by watching the advertisement... that you will be hooked for hours upon hours. Your body will not feel the warmth of natural light, nor will your lungs breath in fresh air for days. Your eyes will burn from straight sleep deprivation. Your entire sensory system will be on overload... and yet, you will thank yourself.

At first glance, I feel that this game is reminiscent of Tenchu. If you are not familiar with Tenchu, it was a game centered around feudal Japan, and you assume the role of a ninja assassin. The game objectives require the player to perform a series of stealthy tasks, all deeply tied to the ability to slip by unnoticed.

Upon doing some online research, this looks like one of the most well rounded games released this year. Aside from playing an insanely amazing game, you get the feeling that you are in for a cinematic adventure that could rival the likes of Dreamwork's. Couple that with the fact that this game is in a category of titanic contenders in the video game world, and up for an onslaught of awards... you're in for one hell of a game.



Assassin's Creed II has won several awards from Gamespot as well as a slew of nominations:
  • The Editor's Choice Award.
  • Best New Character Award. For the Character Ezio.
  • Nominated for Best Story of 2009
  • Nominated for Best Graphics (Technical)
  • Nominated for Best Original Music
  • Nominated for Most Improved Sequel
Look, bottom line here: This game gets my vote. It's got the story. It's got the play. When it comes to spending my hard earned greenbacks, this game gets them.

Make sure to check out Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood for one of your 2010 Christmas gifts.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

On my Christmas Wish list: Xbox360

I've wanted to get a Microsoft Xbox 360 for a while now. Back in college, my friend got one as a graduation gift. I remember playing Tiger Woods golf on that Xbox 360 for hours!

Tiger Woods golf, is actually one of my favorite games of all time. I must have spent 2 hours alone on customizing my golfer. I made him look just like me. Earning the power ups, the clothes, and the sponsorships. It is very much like golf in real life, always striving to improve, to lower your score.

This season, the video game to have seems to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Gamespot gives Call of Duty: M. W. 2 a solid 9.0 rating. Gamespot raves: "Modern Warfare 2 nails the three pillars of play--campaign, cooperative, and multiplayer--to earn its place in the pantheon of modern shooters."

Modern Warfare 2 also receives great reviews from Xbox360.ign. With an overall of 9.5, the game is dubbed "incredible" on this site. With graphics, sounds, and Lasting Appeal all scoring a perfect 10!

Get this game!


Here's what interests me about this game: The game play. It looks like some super sweet graphics! I'm sure it is action packed. Modern Warfare 2 also looks like it has a killer story line. All the ingredients of a very solid game.

Here's what deters me: The demographic this game draws. I'm not trying to make some bull shit point about young men becoming violent off of war games. Not at all. What I mean by that, is that this type of game is douche bag candy. It's like rubbing the urine of a doe in heat all over yourself while hunting... or like rolling in tuna blood just before you jump off a fishing boat into shark infested waters. If you want to play online, you are going to encounter jackasses. Either that, or pale skinned, middle aged virgins, who dwell in the depths of their parents' basements. Guys that fail in every aspect of their lives, except becoming gaming gods. Making it nearly impossible to enjoy oneself online.

Taylor Swift Christmas Album

Taylor Swift Christmas Album
Country Music's Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, America's newest sweet heart. Is her music really country music? Is she really pop? Is she really dating Taylor Lautner (Jacob) of Twilight? Why did Kanye West harass Taylor Swift at the VMA's?

It's funny, a few years ago, I attended a George Strait concert. This little blond girl came out as an opening act, and did a very impressive job. She wrote her own songs and played an instrument! I was impressed with Swift's talent. Although, I never imagined she'd be tomorrow's next superstar.

As my friend and I were leaving the concert, she was at a table out in the lobby. A semi-long line had formed for her, and she was signing her CDs, posters, and merchandise. I bought an autographed CD and poster. Thinking I'd help support her and encourage her music career. Not knowing how much of a phenomenon she'd become.

I suspect Taylor Swift is on a lot of Christmas lists this year. It made me kind of curious to see if she had a holiday album. Sure enough, I found the Taylor Swift Christmas album:


If there is one song that Swift sings, that gets stuck in my head more than any other, it's Teardrops On My Guitar. I saw this one the night I saw her in concert. It's the song I know her best for. If you don't know it, I'll post the song lyrics below.

Taylor Swift, Teardrops On My Guitar Lyrics:

Drew looks at me,
I fake a smile so he won't see
That I want and I'm needing
Everything that we should be

I'll bet she's beautiful,
That girl he talks about
And she's got everything that I have to live without

Drew talks to me,
I laugh cause it's so damn funny
That I can't even see
Anyone when he's with me

He says he's so in love,
He's finally got it right,
I wonder if he knows he's all I think about at night

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

Drew walks by me,
Can't he tell that I can't breathe?
And there he goes,
So perfectly,
The kind of flawless I wish I could be

She'd better hold him tight,
Give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes
And know she's lucky cause

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

So I drive home alone,
As I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down and maybe
Get some sleep tonight

'Cuz He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do
He's the time taken up,
But there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into.

Drew looks at me,
I fake a smile so he won't see

Other ideas for Christmas gifts.

Discovering A Tribe Called Quest

A Tribe Called Quest ImageI must have been living under a rock. Like for real. As a child born in the early '80s you'd think I would have known about A Tribe Called Quest in the '90s... Not the case.

I have multiple friends who list these guys in their top mix of musical favorites when we have compared notes. So, I guess if you want to get technical, I have heard of them. I was just not familiar with their music.

A while back, a friend shared some MP3s of theirs with me. Talk about being hooked from the first moment you hear something. Again, if you want to get technical, it's probably not the first time I've heard them. I'm sure the tribe has been on many a movie soundtracks, the radio, etc.

I like Tribe's style, and their sound. In today's music realm, I find talent harder and harder to come by. If you don't look underground, I don't know if there is anything good out there. So, for me, I've been finding new music (and by that... I mean new to me) in old music.

A Tribe Called Quest Award Tour lyrics

[CHORUS]
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
New York, NJ, NC, VA
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
Oaktown, LA, San Fran, St. John

[Q-TIP]

People give your ears so I be sublime
It's enjoyable to know you in the concubinz
Niggaz' take off your coats, Ladies act like gems
Sit down Indian style as we recite these hymns
See, lyrically I'm Mario Andretti on the mo-mo
Ludicrously speedy or infectious with the slow-mo
Heard me in the eighties J. Beez on the promo
In my never endin' quest to get the paper on the caper
But now, let me take it to the Queens side
I'm takin' it to Brooklyn side
All the residential Quester's who invade the air
Hold up a second son cuz' we almost there
You can be a black man and lose all your soul
You can be white 'n' blue but don't crap the roll
See my shit is universal if you got knowledge or dolo
Of delf for self, see there's no one else
Who can drop it on the angle, acute at that
So, do dat' do dat' do do dat' dat' dat' (COME ON)
Do dat' do dat' do do dat' dat' dat' (OK)
Do dat' do dat' do do dat' dat' dat'
I'm buggin' out but let me get back `cuz they wettin' niggaz'
So run and tell the others `cuz we are the brothas'
I learned how to build mic's in my workshop class
So give me this award and let's not make it the last

[CHORUS]

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas

[PHIFE]

Back in `89 I simply slid into place
Buddy, Buddy, Buddy all up in your face
Alot of kids was bustin' rhymes but they had no taste
Some said Quest was Wack, but now is that the case
I have a quest to have a mic' in my hand
Without that, it's like Kryptonite and Superman
So Shaheed come in with the sugar cuts
Phife Dawg's my name but on stage call me Dynomutt
When was the last time you heard the Phifer sloppy
Lyrics anonymous, you'll never hear me copy
Top notch baby, never comin' less
Sky's the limit, you got's to believe up in Quest
Sit back relax, get up off the path
If not that, here's the dancefloor, come move that ass
Non believer's you can check the stats
I roll with Shaheed and the brotha Abstract
Niggaz' know the time when Quest is in the jam
I never let a statue tell me how nice I am
Comin' with more hits than the Braves and the Yankees
Livin' mad phat like an oversized Bam-bi
The wackest crews try to dis, it makes me laugh
When my track record's longer than a DC-20 aircraft
So next time that you think you want somethin' here
Make somethin' differ, take that garbage to St. Elsewhere

[CHORUS]

We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
SC, Maryland, New Orleans, Motown
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas
We on Award Tour with Muhammad my man
Goin' each and every place with the mic' in their hand
New York, NJ, NC, VA

Star Wars: The Old Republic Free Trailer

OK, truth be told... I don't really get into these types of video games. I think they come with kind of a nerdy stigma, and they just really don't float my boat. Star Wars: The Old Republic on the other hand... well, let's just say: Sign me up.

Just watching the Star Wars Old Republic trailer makes me want to take a seat at the nerd table. Cancel my prom date, I'm staying home to play STAR WARS! The cool kids will talk about prom memories... I will talk about how I dominated the Republic in level two.

Alright, I'll stop. It's even getting a little too nerdy for McLovin. Anyway, check out the Star Wars: The Old Republic video game trailer below.

Song Lyrics - Jimi Hendrix: All Along The Watch Tower

There is no denying the masterful ability that Hendrix had to bend the bounds of music on the old six string. While I now stand in an awe filled respect for the man's talent, I have to admit, at first I hated his music. Although, in all honesty, I don't know that I ever even knew what songs stemmed from this artist, the genius that is Hendrix.


Jimi Hendrix - Song Lyrics
All along the Watch Tower:

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion here
I can't get no relief
Businessmen they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them know along the line
What any of this is worth
No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who think that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that
And that is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
Because the hour is getting late

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While horsemen came and went
Barefoot servants too
All I got is a red guitar
Three chords
And the truth
All I got is a red guitar
The rest is up to you

There's no reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are some among us here
Say that life is just a joke
You and I, we've been through that
And that is not our fate (at least today)
So let us not talk falsely now
Because the hour is getting late
Late...

Song Lyrics - Jimi Hendrix's album Electric Ladyland.

History Channel's Pawn Stars

Pawn Stars

I have a new addiction. It's Pawn Stars on the History Channel. It's a show on a family run pawn business, with three generations at the helm of a wayward ship. The three generations consist of the grandfather "The Old man," or Richard Harrison. The son/father, "The Spotter" (although I have yet to hear him called that on the show), or Rick Harrison. The son/grandson, "Big Hoss," or Corey Harrison.
The show chronicles the bizarre and unique items that come into pawn shops. Everything from old war and military items, to celebrity memorabilia, to your basic items. The first step the Pawn Stars take in completing a deal is determining if the customer wants to Pawn an item, or to sell the item.
Pawning an item consists of taking it in as collateral, and loaning money. The customer then has a set number of days to return the money (plus interest). If they do not, the item then becomes the pawn business' money. This has been established as one of the first and most basic forms of credit. The customer can also just sell the item. Bring it in, negotiate a price, and make the deal.
Get this show! It's awesome.

Kindle... The New Book?

The New Kindle

The Kindle is a device that allows the user to download books and store them on the device. Want something off of the New York Times best seller list? Turn on the Kindle and begin downloading. Within a minute you can have a whole book in your finger tips. It's that simple and apparently very clear and easy on the eyes while reading.

I remember first hearing about the Kindle on an episode of Oprah. Of course once Oprah endorsed this bad boy the whole world had to have one. The problem was that I was skeptical... well, that and intrigued. Is it just a gimmick, or would you really be able to read an entire book off this device? I don't mean that in the sense of "...is it possible?" I know the information would transfer. My question was if I could physically stare at a screen and make my way through chapter after chapter on an electric device like the Kindle. I suppose the Kindle couldn't be all that different than the time I spend online reading things. That is something that makes the Kindle appealing and interesting.

Kindle Specs:

  • Sold by Amazon digital Services
  • Light weight
  • Most New releases and New York Times Best sellers are $9.99 (sound like play from Apples book? Anyone?)
  • 3G Wireless
  • 10.2 Oz. Weight
  • Just over a third of an inch

Kings Of Leon

Kings of Leon - Use Somebody Lyrics

Looks like the Kings of Leon made it to number two on iTunes top 100 list today. Now Kings of Leon is a band that I can't honestly say that I know much about. I, probably like most of you, didn't hear about the Kings of Leon until they became as big as they are. I do like their music and think it's a nice change from a lot of the other radio garbage that's out there. My only fear for the Kings of Leon is that they will get overplayed, which is has been the death sentence for a lot of really good bands.


Kings of Leon's new album Only by the Night was released Sept. 23, 2008 and has been deemed as an album that is "too commerical." It has mass appeal, which is credited to much aid from their recent rigorous touring the last couple of years. Like them or love them... Kings of Leon is here to stay.

Song Lyrics - Kings of Leon, Use Somebody:

I’ve been roamin’ around , I was lookin’ down
On all I see
Painted faces fill the places I can’t reach
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you with all you know and how you speak
Countless love is undercover on the street
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody, yeah
Someone like you, oh,oh,oh, oh
Someone like you
Someone like you
Use somebody
Someone like you
Use somebody, yeah


Off in the night, while you live it up
I’m off to sleep
Ragin’ wars to shape the poet and the thief
Well , I hope it’s gonna make you notice
Yeah, I hope it’s gonna make you notice, mmm
Someone like me
Someone like me, oh, oh, oh, oh
Someone like me
Use somebody
Someone like me, somebody, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh


I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
Use somebody
Use somebody
Somebody, yeah
Someone like you
I’ve been roamin’ around
I was lookin’ down at all I see

Song Lyrics- Kings of Leon- Use Somebody(2008).

Diddy - Making His Band

Sean Combs, P.Diddy, or... Diddy

No matter how you say his name, you've got to love the music. Accompanying a long list of rappers with multiple names and aliases... Diddy churns out hits, new artists, and products at a speed the franchiser's of McDonald's could appreciate. Well Diddy's up to it again.

Recent ads show that Diddy is embarking on another world tour in 2010, but wants to audition no-name, would-be artists to add to his band. He doesn't want to create a new band, but actually wants to add to his own. Which leaves me wondering if he is just trying to eek out another season of his show, promote his upcoming tour, or actually trying to launch some new music careers.

According to MTV's casting call site, his call began on 02/24/2009, but ended before I ever saw any ads for it on 03/31/2009. The call was for aspiring vocalists and musicians, ranging from guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard, alike. New members have a chance to back him on his next and upcoming album "Last Train to Paris."

The auditions were held in New York at the S.I.R. Rehearsal Studios. Family members of contestants were not allowed to accompany their potential super star, due to limited space at the facility. Those auditioning were asked to preform numbers from:
  • American Boy -- Estelle
  • Heartless -- Kanye West
  • Last Night -- Diddy
  • Message in a Bottle -- The Police
  • I Miss You -- Blink 182
  • September -- Earth Wind & Fire
  • Rehab -- Amy Winehouse
  • All This Love -- DeBarge

No matter what comes of this... I have faith Diddy will produce some great stuff on this new album. I'm a huge fan of his old music and the Bad Boy Franchise, so we'll have to see what comes from this. Check his old albums.



The King Still Reigns

Michael Jackson - The King of Pop





Michael Jackson still reigns supreme as the king of Pop Music. That is, at least, according to iTunes top 100 albums list. There is now no denying, if there ever was any doubt in the first place, that Michael Jackson is the king of pop!

With 16 albums or versions there of, in the top 50! Jackon's four albums that are in the top are, The Essential Michael Jackson, Number Ones, Thriller, and The Stripped Mixes (in respective order). Michael beats out many of today's most popular artists.



Whether it is the beat and the music, or his unforgettable lyrics, Michael Jackson made the public dance for four generations, broke racial barriers, and touched the nation. Although Jackson was mocked for the later years of his life as he grew more reclusive and mysterious, and after harmful allegations of child molestation... his fans still remain steadfast in their love for Michael.

The evidence is clear in the public outcries after his death. The evidence is clear in his record breaking record sales! Whether Michael Jackson is a pop music hero in your heart, or just a punchline to you... He still reigns the undisputed king of pop!

Black Eyed Peas Lyrics

Black Eyed Peas- I Gotta Feeling Lyrics:




The Black Eyed Peas reached #1 on iTunes with their hit "I gotta Feeling." While it's not most impressive set of lyrics I've seen, the beat seams to be catchy enough for everyone and their brother to want this song! It looks like the Black Eyed Peas have also done very good in the ring tone market as of late also. Here are the song lyrics to I Gotta Feeling:

Billie Jean Song Lyrics- Michael Jackson

Song Lyrics Billie Jean - Michael Jackson (1982)

"Billie Jean is not my lover... she's just some girl, says that I am the one." We all know these Song Lyrics. The beat, like a giant magnet, seems to draw girls to the dance floor. The song is littered Michael Jackson's signature high pitched yelps and background vocals. And according to Wikipedia, the song was written my Michael Jackson himself... although producer Quincy Jones wasn't too hot on it. Thankfully for Quincy the song went on to be a chart topper, and became a best selling single. The song is also based on a real life experience Jackson had, when a mentally ill female fan claimed that Michael was the father of one of her children.


Billie Jean Lyrics (By Michael Jackson)

She Was More Like A Beauty Queen From A Movie Scene
I Said Don't Mind, But What Do You Mean I Am The One
Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round
She Said I Am The One Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round

She Told Me Her Name Was Billie Jean, As She Caused A Scene
Then Every Head Turned With Eyes That Dreamed Of Being The One
Who Will Dance On The Floor In The Round

[Bridge]Mama Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
And Mother Always Told Me Be Careful Of Who You Love
And Be Careful Of What You Do 'Cause The Lie Becomes The Truth

Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son

For Forty Days And Forty Nights
The Law Was On Her Side
But Who Can Stand When She's In Demand
Her Schemes And Plans'
Cause We Danced On The Floor In The Round
So Take My Strong Advice, Just Remember To Always Think Twice
(Do Think Twice)

She Told My Baby That's A Threat
As She Looked At Me
Then Showed A Photo Of A Baby Cries
Eyes Would Like Mine
Go On Dance On The Floor In The Round, Baby

People Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
She Came And Stood Right By Me
Then The Smell Of Sweet Perfume
This Happened Much Too Soon
She Called Me To Her Room

Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, She Says He Is My Son
She Says I Am The One
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover
Billie Jean Is Not My Lover

One of my new favorites

Terrance O'Quinn

Terrance O'Quinn also known as Terry O'Quinn, has found his way onto my list of favorite actors. Terry O'Quinn has probably gained most of his mass appeal from his character John Locke, on ABC's Lost. This is where I first learned about Mr. O'Quinn... or so I thought.
I have recently stumbled across a lot of his older works, and Terrance O'Quinn has popped on TV and Film alike. Today, the SciFi channel is running a Twilight Zone marathon. Guess who shows up on an episode called "chameleon?" That's right, Terry O'Quinn! He portrayed a NASA-like scientist, investigating a strange space box.
Two weeks ago, I was at home due to a foot problem. I decided to rent an old movie or two, a few that I hadn't seen... but have heard a lot of references to... turns out Terry O'Quinn played Alex McSween on Young Guns (1988). He's also in another of my film favorites, Tombstone.
Terry has won me over as the most interesting character on Lost (in my opinion). O'Quinn has also surprised me with his excellent film choices from his past. Likewise, I'm excited to see where he'll go.

Michael Jackson Songs

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009).
One of, if not the most, famous recording artist ever! Known as the king of Pop (pop music), Michael was one of the best selling artists in history.

On June 25, 2009 Michael Jackson was pronounced dead at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center at roughly 2:25pm. Jackson's death is one in a series of shocking Hollywood deaths lately. Also recently deceased are TV infomerical and pitch man Billy Mays (OxyClean), David Carradine (Kill Bill movies, Kung Fu TV series), and Farrah Fawcett (Charlie's Angels). While all of these recent deaths made headlines, it seems as if Michael Jackson's death shadows all of the other three.

Michael Jackson dominates iTunes

Eight of iTunes top 10 songs have been dominated by Michael today. Michael's total domination of iTunes was only foiled by the Black Eyed Peas. Other than the two songs the Black Eyed Peas managed to hit, Michael reigns supreme.

Today's iTunes rankings:



  1. Man in The Mirror (Michael Jackson)
  2. I Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas)
  3. The Way You Make Me Feel (Michael Jackson)
  4. Boom Boom Pow (Black Eyed Peas)
  5. Billie Jean (Michael Jackson)
  6. Black or White (Michael Jackson)

The Hangover (2009)

The Hangover (2009)


Comedy Film of the Year! The Hangover took over box offices as of late! According to Yahoo!, The Hangover dominated the box offices this weekend.

The Hangover has mixed reviews from critics and movie goers a like. One thing is undeniable however, The Hangover will leave you woozy. Gut-busting jokes, funny songs, and crazy situations from beginning to end.

The Hangover focuses on the Groom's party taking a Las Vegas Road trip for the bachelor party. Once in Vegas, the group checks in to their hotel and has a roof top toast to the groom. Flash forward to the next morning. Headaches, mysteries, and a missing groom! Now the gang must puzzle the pieces of the previous night together to find their boy... one problem, they can't remember a damn thing!
Bradley Cooper does a great job Phil Wenneck. He is a school teacher who needs to get away from his students and family (wife and kids) for the weekend. He's rude and crude. Everything you could want from a groomsman.
Ed Helms, who you might recognize from NBC's hit The Office, plays your average whipped-pushover. His character Stu price needs nothing more than to get away from his agro girlfriend for a weekend in Vegas... um, if that's ok with her. He's the safe, level headed one... and as might guess, has a really hard time on this trip.
Zach Galifianakis plays Alan Garner. Brother of the bride. Alan is simply a blanket, some food, a park, two hungry people, and a picnic basket... shy of a picnic. HE'S NUTS! Galifianakis will probably see a lot more lead roles from this movie. Think Vince Vaughen, Owens Brothers, Will Ferrell type of movies. Although, according to IMD, Galifianakis has very extensive resume of being behind the camera! His character Alan Garner will have you laughing until you cry... well, either that, or completely confused.
Justin Bartha plays the groom, Doug Billings. I most recognize this actor from his work in National Treasure, opposite of Nicholas Cage. Although, he doesn't get a lot of face time in The Hangover, due to the fact that he is the missing groom... you can't help but love him. He's the quiet, appreciative, non-judgemental friend of the rag-tag group.
Rachel Harris plays Melissa, controlling girlfriend of Stu. She's rude, controlling, unfaithful, and obsessive. She does a great job of making you hate her in this film.
There is a lot of other talent that pulls this film together, but an extra special mention goes out to Ken Jeong! I won't give anything away about his character, Mr. Chow... but if you've seen the film, you'll know what I am talking about. He's been visible on the film scene lately, most notable from Role Models and Knocked Up.

Film Dog Day Afternoon

Film: Dog Day Afternoon

Crazy film! I know it's a cult classic and had to rent it. The reason I rented so many movies this week is because I have a gift card from Christmas time, that needs to be used! The weather here has been really rainy, so it's the perfect week for some Film!
To me, this film was interesting on several levels. To avoid spoilers, for those of you out there who haven't seen the movie... I won't reveal them all. What I liked about this film is that it wasn't your typical banker robber movie... but, at the same time, it was your typical bank robber movie. Also, the film is based on a true story.
Al Pacino plays Sonny Wortzik, an ex-bank employee who decides to try his luck at robbing a bank. He and his friend end up in stand off with both the police and the FBI. The heat escalates from there.
The best way to sum this movie comes from it's Tag Line:
"The robbery should have taken 10 minutes. 4 hours later, the bank was like a circus sideshow. 8 hours later, it was the hottest thing on live T.V. 12 hours later, it was all history. And it's all true."
Other Taglines:
  • "The Most Bizarre Bank Siege Ever"
  • "Anything can happen during the dog days of summer. On August 22nd, 1972, everything did"
  • "In August, 1972, Sonny Wortzik robbed a bank. 250 cops, the F.B.I., 8 hostages and 2,000 onlookers will never forget what took place."

Cast:

Al Pacino -- Sonny Wortzik

John Cazale -- Sal

Judith Malina -- The Mother (Vi)

William Bogert -- News Caster

Charles Durning -- Detective Eugene Moretti

Chris Sarandon -- Leon Shermer

Sully Boyar -- Mulvaney

Penelope Allen -- Slyvia

Amy Levitt -- Moria

Lonesome Dove



Lonesome Dove

One of my favorite films that I have rented lately. Lonesome Dove was a miniseries on television circa 1989. The entire cast is a star studded extravaganza. The cast ranges from Robert Duvall to Tommy Lee Jones. Along for the ride is a boat load of other talented stars including Diane Lane, Danny Glover, and Steve Buscemi.

Cast: (not in its entirety)

  • Robert Duvall (Gus McCrae)
  • Tommy Lee Jones (Woodrow F. Call)
  • Steve Buscemi (Luke)
  • Danny Glover (Deets)
  • Diane Lane (Lorena "Lori" Wood)
  • Frederic Forrest (Blue Duck)
  • Robert Urich (Jake Spoon)
  • D.B. Sweeney (Dish Boggett)
  • Rick Schroder (Newt Dobbs)
  • Chris Cooper (July Johnson)
  • Anjelica Huston (Clara Allen)
  • Nina Siemaszko (Janey)

The movie consists of 384 minutes of run time! It's not at all tedious as Gus (Robert Duvall) will keep you entertained with his delightful mouthiness. Tommy Lee Jones (as Woodrow) gives an outstanding performance as his character struggles with fatherhood and overcoming a stone cold heart. Diane Lane plays the convincing part of an old saloon whore, which I found to be funny seeing here in a role like this. She does a great job, and creates a very lovable character.

The whole movie (or series, I guess I should say) is complete classic western. The Film is premised around a cattle drive from Texas to Montana. It is most definitely a nostalgic feeling movie, but a great one none-the-less. Make sure to check it out!

3AM Song Lyrics-Rob Thomas Acoustic

Rob Thomas - 3AM Song Lyrics

It's actually 3:00 am for me. I'm up so late, and I am playing online at Full Tilt. I decided when 3AM rolled around, that I'd play the song by Rob Thomas. I came across this piano acoustic version. He talks a little about the song's origins and his mother having cancer. Enjoy the video and song lyrics below. 3 AM by Rob Thomas.




3AM Lyrics- Rob Thomas- Matchbox20

(By Rob Thomas, John Leslie Goff, John Joseph Stanley, Brian Yale)
She says it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She's always worried about things like that
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

She says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain's gonna wash away
I believe it

She's got a little bit of something,
God it's better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

[chorus]

She believes that life is made up of all that you're used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it's stopped raining

[chorus]

Adding Albums to the Sansa View

MP3 Player

(Sorry for the extreme lack of updating!) Tonight I'm adding new music to my MP3 (the Sansa View) player. I bought two new albums last night, almost three. I ended up getting John Rich's Son of a preacher man, and Shinedown's The sound of madness. Eminem's new album was a close third. I decided against Eminem, because I think it's just the kid in me that wants his album. I'm going to have to listen to his songs on the net and see if I still think it's worth it or not.

John Rich: Son of a Preacher Man:

This album reminds me of real country music, not all that pop garbage that's on CMT. He sings about current events (i.e. The bailout of the banks, and Detroit's auto crisis). John Rich grew on me over time, I started out hating Big and Rich when they debuted. I watched his reality show and the way talked about country music won me over.


Find more about John Rich and his music (and new album, Son of a Preacher Man) at his website. http://www.johnrich.com/index.php. There you can find John Rich Music, John Rich Tour Dates, John Rich News, John Rich Music Videos and more!





Shinedown: The Sound of Madness

A good friend of mine turned me on to Shinedown in college. I really liked the songs Simple Man and 45. I bought the follow up album to that (Us and Them). Soon I got Leave a whisper. Now I own The sound of Madness and am very glad I bought it. They have the same sound, so it's really nothing new... but it's what I like.

You can check out their official website at http://www.shinedown.com/. There you'll be able to buy and view Shinedown music, the Shinedown blog, Shinedown concerts, Shinedown photos, Shinedown videos and more!

Greg Pattillo

Beat boxing flute?

Yeah, it sounded kind of stupid to me too when I read the caption. However, once you start listening, it's hypnotizing. Like some kind of Rahzel ("Godfather of Noyze") off-shoot, this type of music blends jazz style flute with hip-hop. The artist, Greg Pattillo is a very talented guy. Very precise. Animated.

I've linked some video here, check them out:

Dustin Hoffman - The Graduate (1967)

Film - The Graduate (1967)

Finally! That's all I can say. After a long, long time and many movie references to this particular film, I can say that my pop culture I.Q. has been boosted a little.


What's it all about?

If you were born in the late 1980s or later, you may have not even heard of this film. The Graduate stars Dustin Hoffman as Ben Braddock. Ben is a recent college graduate who comes home from school and is faced with the dilemma of what to do next. Ben also was the B-Moc (big man on campus), and has many accolades he must live up to, ultimately making his decision all that much harder to make and the pressure to succeed that much higher.

One night Braddock's parents (his father played by William Daniels... who you may remember as Mr. Feeny from the TV sitcom Boy Meets World) throw a big party in his honor, taking every chance they get to brag about him. Fed up with the attention, Ben hides in his room. Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) then mistakenly enters after, while "looking for the rest room." Shortly after she convinces Braddock to drive her home, where she later proposition's Ben at her residence.

Eventually, Ben gives in to the older cougar's advances, and a fling ensues. This whole exchange between Ben and Mrs. Robinson is often awkward when not in the physical act. Eventually their fling is cut short due to a visit from Mrs. Robinson's daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross).

Ben is pressured into taking Elaine on a date and pursuing her. Reluctant at first, Ben eventually becomes smitten and finds a person he can confide his post college angst in. He falls for Elaine and starts to see more of her. She soon finds out about the affair and runs away from Ben. He spends the rest of the movie trying to win her back .

What I think

While some of this movie's legendary weight was probably lost on me, due to the fact of the generation gap, I still really liked it. This film is a cinematic pillar, and winner of many awards, including an Oscar. I found it largely entertaining, both as a stand alone film, but also as historical giant.

The soundtrack, which was very fitting for the time (possibly even edgy at the time), was not really for me. "The Sound of Silence," by Simon and Garfunkel must have played at least four times throughout the film. I do like this song, but heard it more than enough throughout the film.



The Graduate Film Details:

Major Cast Members: Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross, William Daniels, Murray Hamilton, Elizabeth Wilson, and Brian Avery.

Director: Mike Nichols

Release Year: 1967

Genre: Drama, Romance, Comedy.
