Here's what I don't wanna hear about:

- I don't wanna hear any more about "they captured JonBenet's killer!", because that still hasn't been proven, and there are details he's still got wrong. Besides, it's been ten damn years, why do you care? Do you get this worked up about every person killed in America every day? No. The media hyped this one, and the public lapped it up. I'm only being honest when I say that I just don't care.

- I don't wanna hear any more about how great "Snakes On A Plane" is. I still think it's a watered down, dopey idea for a film, and I think Hollywood is laughing at everyone spending their ten freakin' dollars a seat to go see it. I think they are laughing at the fact that they are just proving they don't actually have to put any effort into a movie to sell it and make loads of cash. Hey, I like Sam Jackson, too. Seriously, though, movies like this are why more interesting things don't get made.

None of this is directed to anyone in particular, nor am I trying to dictate what you write about, hey, it's your journal, go ahead. Just expressing annoyance with those things I think are being so over-hyped in the media that is just sick.

How about if I tell you that's a good song you're listening to.

Well, DUH.

I'm always happy to talk about the sheer metal greatness that is the Irons.

I agree with the good song comment... Nice :)

I heard about the Ramsey thing, but only through lj... and only like once I think. Canda has it's merits indeed... Now I'm back in the states, so best to avoid the news channels for awhile.
I do that anyway!
Cool :)

Snakes On a Plane is indeed a simple movies totally over-hyped (due to it's apparant absurdity). I find it to be a mildly amusing phenomenon. Only mildly, though.
However, I regret to inform you that I will probably mention the movie in my lj at some point today because someone left me one of those kinda funny SOAP messages on my answering machine... and what made it funny was because there was all these solicitation calls and Sam Jackson wedged between them... hehe.
So, sorry in advance.

Iron Maiden is a good chice, plus Drake likes them...

Eh, like I said, people can say what they want, I'm just tired of everything being connected to it,and the fact that so few people seem to be able to see anything but the "oh, it's so cool" aspect. but then, I seem to have this situaton with most new movies, so I can't say I'm surprised. just more of the same, and this time there's 'Net hype added in.

Hey, be glad you don't live in Nashville.
If you did, I'm sure Perry March would be on your list, too.

Yes, thankfully I haven't lived in Nashville in 15 years. I can't say I miss the place.

And that;'s exactly one of the things I'm talking about. The movie may be a parody of itself, in a way, or a satire on Hollywood improbable action flicks...but that's not how most will see it, and that's not what execs will think about when they sdtart to greenlight the inevitable films coming in this same vein.

The difference is that Evil Dead wasn't made to be a "bad movie", it was simply low budget. When they had the budget, they opted to make it funny...but still kept some integrity. Snakes, though, seems like a joke. And, if it ends up being a joke, I'll jump right in and love it...just as everyone else bitches about it.

Me, I wanted to see opening night, everyone pack the theatre and the credits roll...and it be nothing but Sam Jackson walking out going "you are some gullible motherfuckers!"

I agree, I like the guy, and I like that he's into it all.

Now that would be something to see! To just sit back and watch other people's faces as they sat their in shock. Yes sir I would gladly pay my 8.50 for that(Only on that mind you any later and the joke would be old).

The JonBenet case has always weighed kind of heavily with me because it happened soon after I became a mother (the first time). I took it kind of personally because I had the whole protective Mommy thing going on.

I am in awe with this asshole they've dug up. One way or the other, this guy needs help. If he did it, he needs to pay. If he didn't, he needs serious psychiatric care. He's a nut.

I would love to see the responsible party caught and punished. Too often in this world, people are hurt and/or murdered and the responsible party is never caught. It helps renew your faith in the world when you see that they don't ALL get away.

I'm really sick of Snakes on a Plane. This movie would normally do awful at the box office, but thanks to goobers on the internet it's going to make millions.

An LJ friend of mine recently took a trip to Europe to celebrate her HS graduation. She took lots of pictures, including several of her friends making scared faces at a plastic snake....when they were on the plane. That was the first I'd heard of it, and apparently I don't watch enough TV, because I've still only heard about it through my LJ.
