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 261: Hey London by Chiddy Bang

2 Mar

Hey everyone!

This is my JAM for today! As you probably already know, I’m a pretty big fan of Chiddy Bang (from this post)… I feel like they are one of the more fun hip hop artists that have come out of the past couple of years, although I could be wrong (as you can probably tell I’m not the most experienced writer of Hip-hop)

Anyway, this song is actually kind of silly… I love the chorus:

“Hey London
I know you’ve never seen me before
And though I’d love to stay and kick it some more
I gotta get back on my tour
So the only thing I gotta say is
Hey London
You gotta know I love ya for sure
Just let me in cos you opened the door
If I gotta get back on my tour…”

I mean, it’s literally about how this guy came to London, but he has to leave now. Really? That’s awesome (at least in my opinion)

So jam it out today to “Hey London” by Chiddy Bang!

EDIT: This post is dedicated to my friend Emilio, mainly because he’s the one that introduced me to Chiddy Bang in the first place!

Day 248: Sensual Seduction by Snoop Dogg

17 Feb

I freaking love this song. Snoop Dogg is notorious for being one of those sort-of silly rappers, but this video tops it for me.

Don’t get me wrong, he’s super legit. I love almost everything he’s done especially this song. But only a silly person would make a music video for an already silly song look like it walked out of the early 80s.

I love it though, with all of its cheesyness.

So enjoy “Sensual Seduction” by Snoop Dogg

Day 96: Achievement Unlocked!

24 Aug

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

I don’t have much for you tonight, as I’m trying to get ready for my trip to California tomorrow, but I do have something fun to keep you busy!

It’s a game called “Achievement Unlocked”… and the point is to unlock all the achievements to the right side of the screen. Some are as simple as jumping in the air for 20 seconds or clicking the mute button, but some are as difficult as trying to solve mathematical equations (I’ll give you a hint, hit 2-5-3 in order…)

Blue elephants? Polka music? Silly achievements? What’s not to love!

So enjoy “Achievement Unlocked!”

Also, if you’re up for it, try to get through achievement unlocked 2… so much harder and it’s intennnnse!
