FIDO – MOVIE REVIEW

Let me start off by saying that I take zombies seriously and this film doesn’t take cellular reanimation seriously.  What do Zombies do? They come back to life and they eat people or brains to remain reanimated. So when a zombie film fails to answer basic questions like what and why, we are left with pseudo zombies like the ones in 28 Days Later, Resident Evil that are just undead for the sake of melodrama.  Everyone told me I had to see Fido. As a non zombie film its a cute movie, very clever, but lets be honest, its more closely related to George and Lenny from Mice and Men, then it is to George Romero, and its just not for me.  Without going into all the metaphors and symbolism that make real zombies horrifying, lets just say Fido deserves to be in the doghouse.

Tube Snapping Jocks Bring Wigs Inside Batters Box.

Washington is Hollywood for ugly people.  So why show up with a lawyer that looks like he’s one of those Black Widow biker guys that lost all their hair to Philo Beddoe and then covered it with a 3 dollar wig.  Or does anybody else think Roger Clemens atty looks and sounds like Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (wearing a 3 dollar wig)?  I dont really care about Roids or Juice or HGH. But now these platitude spitting, arrogant jocks, are totally harshing my morning Sportcenter ‘tude  by taking this thing all the way to Uglywood DC.  I was intitally mildly insulted by the puffed up and thoroughly hollow indignancy  displayed by Clemens as he talked down to me, the constant  sports fan.I’m not even really a baseball fan, I’m a just a Marlins Fan, which means I don’t go to games. And if I watch on television, its usually late innings in a deciding game in which the Marlins have a shot to win the World Series. With that said,  I refuse to let some red-faced redneck with a furrowed brow stare me down as if I was inside the batters box.  I’m not. Roger Clemens and his Black Widow Wig wearing lawyer can’t berate me into feeling “embarrassed” or downgrade denegrade me into questioning what is and what is not an “asinine” question. I’m not an idiot. I didn’t have an Athletic Dept. helping me pass tests and  exams in college. I’ve never mistaken a broken baseball bat for a baseball and then thrown it at someone. I don’t care who took juice, hgh, cracked tubes or slathered themselves in unguents. I just don’t need to be downgraded talked down to by some red-faced hot head that made a name for himself by throwing baseballs passed people.

Thats how you sell records…yeah 78’s!

Open with Francis Sinatra fine. Frank rules. Alycia Keyes is a goddess, cant go wrong there. But then what the fuck happened to the Grammy’s. Just like Shaq they got really old really fast. Andy Williams? Tina Turner, Burt Bacharach, George Martin? Lets be honest and forthcoming, awards shows exist to sell products. The Academy Awards want you to run out and see No Country for Old Men, or There Will Be Blood. The Grammys want people to go out buy Amy Wino’s cd, or Kanyes disc.
 
Problem is, the kids are stealing all the music and not buying it. Who aint stealing it? Ummm people in their 70’s and 80’s that are into Andy Williams, I guess. So the Music Industry is promoting music to people in their 40’s  THE TIME, and then they drag out Forest Gump and he promotes The Band and The Beatles to the folks that are in their 50’s to 60’s.  Out comes Andy Williams, and Cher, and Tina Turner, and then I turned it off.
 
What the fuck was that? AARP Grammys? Where was the APPLE commercial with Justin Long and Walter Cronkite?  This is a slap in the face to everybody that buys all their music, LIKE ME!
 
Im not Roger Clements or Barry Bonds, the RIAA will not tell me to my face that Im a thief. No, not to my face, but they will assume it from the luxury of their Wilshire Blvd digs.  I pay for my music, I buy iTunes cards. I deserve Better.
 
Writers strike or not, the presenters were still reading from a teleprompter, so somebody wrote the text, Jason Bateman bombed. Who ever expected him to still be around anyway.  Me, Im gonna listen to my paid for copy of the White Stripes Icky Thump. 
 
 

I’m Nominated! Vote for me.

I just got an email from Joel over at Rockytoptalk.com informing me that my Gundy Downgrades the Weather  video has been nominated for Best Youtube video for the 2007 College Football Blogger Awards.  I’m totally stoked about being nominated. Check out the rest of the nominations. Good luck to everybody. Thanks to Joel for the heads up. 

Guess who back!

USC controls the secular sports media. Their grads go to the NFL and into Studios and Networks, Agencies, Prodcos. How many Students does USC have 75,000? They crank out movie stars, sports stars, and televsion and movie people. Combine all that together we get OJ S*mpson. USC’s most famous alum, movie star, television star, Heisman winner, and Hall of Famer. Writers get ready. A small private school of only 9,000 students just inked the #1 football recruiting class in the entire country according to ESPN. Theyv’e got a Black Head Coach (rare) named Randy Shannon (google him) who just got 12 of the best 150 football players in the nation to go to a school that doesn’t even have a stadium to play in. They are renting the local NFL stadium to play home games.  The training facilities are downgraded by the media. A small private university in the middle of an international metropolis. The University of Miami. The U. Its about to happen again. This small private school with limited resources, a small but loyal fanbase, and some local athletes are gonna take on big government, and big checkbooks. They are gonna make money for  DisneyABCESPN, and its gonna get nastier than Washington. Youve seen it, now watch it again. Lotta football highlights on TV as of recent. Nothing close to this. 

The Real Miami Football DyNASTY!


Patriot Fans, ignore all the hate. Hating is far more destructive negative energy than cheating is. But dont take my word for it, Im Darkside. This loss is gonna hurt forever. I have several heartbreaks that are equal to if not greater than The Patriots tonight. Things like this are usually what make you turn to the Darkside. You got Wilfork and Merriweather, thats more than enough cred to juice the Pats in.

 

Now picture this . Instead of being 18 – 0, imagine being 34 – 0. Music and Fashion have changed since you last lost a game. You are the reigning champ defending the title. During that game, you go down like 17 – 0. Then Moss gets his leg folded the wrong way until everything snaps. Then you fight back and tie the game and force 2 overtimes, and the game is finally decided on a bad pass interference call.

 

Can you imagine that pain for a second? 34 – 0. Undefeated Coaching record, defending title, overtime, and you get a flag…4 full seconds after you have been declared the winner. Count 4 Mississippi. Fireworks were going off!

 

A pathetic lettuce farmer from Oklahoma stole The Miami Hurricanes National Title and gave it to Thee Ohio State that night in Arizona. There has never been a worse call in the history of televised championships. Never. Nothing even close.

In closing, yeah it sucks to lose a championship, but its even worse to have it stolen away.

Fiesta Bowl Update

U-RB Willis McGahee recovered from the devastating knee injury was drafted in the first round of the 2003 NFL DRAFT. While playing for the Ravens this season he ran all over the Patriots. He was stopped short on 3rd down by NT Vince Wilfork, which ultimately got the ball back for the Patriots.

Buckeye RB Maurice Clarrett is currently serving time in a prison somewhere in Ohio.

SS Sean Taylor is dead. He was murdered in his bedroom protecting his wife and child.
