Day 295: The Room (aka YOU’RE TEARING ME APAAART, LEEESAAAAA)

4 May

The Room, written, directed and starring Tommy Wiseau

So, I didn’t get to expand on this yesterday, but I wanted to feature something (now) near and dear to my heart.

This last Saturday I got to attend a “The Room” party, which went from being a Rocky Horror Picture Show-like movie experience to a drunken crazy-fest. And, strangely enough, this is exactly how The Room (2003) needs to be watched: with a little bit of lighthearted silliness.

The movie is a disaster, to say the least. It’s full of plot holes, soap-opera lines, and melodramatic acting… not to mention how creepy all of the characters are (I’m looking at you, Denny!!). But what makes it so great is how classically bad it is, much like the other midnight movies out there (RHPS and Snakes On A Plane are just two examples).

After I signed up to drink every time a football was on the scene – which is ridiculous because this comes in the most ridiculous times – it was clear that everyone at this party was going to be either drunk or close to it by the end of this film. Boy, was I right!

By all means, I want to say that this movie is no Oscar winner, but the movie is classic. Whenever the main characters enter a room, they say “Oh hi _____” before getting to the point; Johnny (played by the strange Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote and directed the film) bellows out poorly-accented lines (“YOU’RE TEARING ME AHHHPAAAHHHHT LEEESAAA!”) and drinks scotchka; Denny is apparently an 18-year old drug addict that has serious parental-deficiencies as he lays in bed with Lisa and Johnny while they’re trying to get it on (mind you, Johnny wanted to adopt Denny); then there’s Mark, who’s Johnny’s best friend (and this fact is stated NUMEROUS times throughout the film) and seems like a cool guy until, you know, he sleeps with Johnny’s fiancée…. it’s like scene after scene goes by, making less and less sense.

But overall the experience was a blast. Those of us at the party pelted the make-shift screen with plastic spoons (and sometimes knives and forks) everytime the pointless spoon painting showed up in a scene, and we all yelled “GO! GO! GO!” as we travelled along with the stock footage of the Golden Gate Bridge… there were tons more, but that’s something you should find out for yourself.

I highly recommend The Room because it is an experience in itself. It may be considered the worst movie ever made (probably after Troll 2 (1990)), but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun. Especially if you don’t take it seriously (please don’t. That’s a fate worse than death!)

Here’s a preview for you to get stoked about, and if you live in Oregon, Wiseau is showing the movie in Portland towards the end of May! ENJOY (and beware!)

And thanks to Bryan for inviting me to watch this insane film. SPOON!

Day 293: SEALAB 2021

29 Apr

I’m gonna post a short one tonight, mainly because I’m running on about 3 hours of sleep.

Sealab 2021 was one of those awesome shows on [adult swim] that made fun of those old-school 70s cartoons I used to love. With the archaic animation of the olden days of the mid-2000s, the voices of awesome people (specifically Erik Estrada!), and the completely random episodes that just don’t make sense half the time, Sealab is just a win upon wins.

Warning, this show is sort of dumb, but I can’t help but laugh every time I watch it.

Enjoy “I, Robot” on Sealab 2021!

Day 284: Sabotaaaaaaaaaage (by the Beastie Boys)

13 Apr

Hey everyone!

I woke up this morning, and declared it a Beastie Boys day.

And this video rocks.

I’ll have a longer post for you guys tomorrow, but until then it’s “SABOTAAAAAAAAAAAGE”

Day 283: HEY HOMIES! by the Aquabats

12 Apr

HEY HOMIES!

I love this song. Seriously, not only is it my alarm clock in the mornings, but it’s also just the happiest song ever.

Plus we don’t need no thugs. Unless those thugs was giving out hugs.

They bring up a pretty strong argument!

By the way, I know I have posted The Aquabats before, but I’d like to remind all you guys that they are awesome. Their new CD just came out recently (Hi-Five Soup! click here to see it on iTunes) and it’s full of feel-good songs that fit perfectly with the impending summer season. I personally love “In My Dreams” and “Radio Down”…. just a few of the awesomeness that is ska-punk kids music for adults.

If you get a chance to see them live, please go. Please please please go. I’ve seen them twice, and I’m just waiting for them to come closer to me so I can go again. And don’t hesitate to dress up (no one else does).

So don those capes, put on those masks, and enjoy the life out of “Hey Homies!”

Day 278: [BELATED] Let’s Duet by Dewey Cox

20 Mar

Sorry for the late post! I’ve been quite busy for these past few days, but I’m definitely going to find time to update more tomorrow!

Tonight, I watched Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007), which is one of those cheesy spoofs of Johnny Cash’s life… but this time with hilarious comedians (including John C. Riley, Jenna Fischer, Paul Rudd, Tim Meadows, and many others)!

Anyways, this song always cracks me up… but be forewarned: it’s quite dirty if you read between the lines!!!

Enjoy “Let’s Duet” by Dewey Cox.

Day 275: [SUPER BELATED 7 of 7] Canada Dry is the greatest drink ever.

17 Mar

I’ve become addicted to ginger ale. It’s my favorite type of soda. Which just says all sorts of sad things about myself.

But regardless, I wish I could sing sweet harmonies to my lovely Canada Dry because it’s just so lovely.

So, instead, I will post the greatest video to go along with my great Canada Dry. I will love you forever.

This is how I feel when I drink it. Yeah. Be jealous

Day 273: [SUPER BELATED 5 of 7] Ian Is Bored: STREET FIGHTER

17 Mar

I used to be a huge fan of Smosh videos… well, I’m still a pretty big fan but back in the day I used to have a teeshirt and watched those videos with my friends like everyday!

I sort of stopped watching the videos once I hit like junior year of high school, but last year I rediscovered my love for Ian and Anthony as I began to watch “Ian Is Bored.” It’s a video series they do each week where Ian does various things because he’s bored. I love it. A whole lot.

So today I wanted to feature my favorite one, episode four “STREET FIGHTER FAIL!”

I feel the pain in this episode because I get my ass handed to me in Street Fighter pretty much every time I play!

check it out here:

Also, check out all their other videos (like Lunchtime with Smosh, which is also hilarious) on their website: smosh.com.
