Arleenequin

did you know that the Batman advisory and Joker gal pal Harley Quinn never existed prior to the 90s animated TV series AND was inspired by a Harlequin dream sequence on the soap opera Days of Our Lives, played by the actress (Arleen Sorkin) who would eventually lend her voice to the character on the cartoon????

In Like Lynne

Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O.
Radio City Music Hall
September 18th, 2016

E.L. FCUKING O.!!!!!!! they bring no one down. not even BRUCE!!!

A video posted by Thigh Master (@thighmaster) on

Dude, they did NOT bring ANYONE down.  Not him or her, or even Bruce.  They brought everyone UP!!!  The only thing Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. brought down was the HOUSE!!!  bi the gay, what IS E.L.O. without Jeff Lynne anywaysz? 

Man, what a fcuking show.  It was ELECTRIC!!  There were LIGHTS!!! And, woah, how rad was that ORCHESTRA!!!  Truth in advertising!  18 songs came and went in a cool 90 minutes, but I was ready for more!

They didn’t even tackle a lot of the hits on their greatest hits, which I used as my homework for the past few months, but you want to leave your fans wanting more, right??

Hard to say I was even a fan a few months ago (most of my Jeff Lynne love came from his work as a Traveling Wilbury), but after doing that homework, I was like – woah, I know ALL these songs, and they’re ALL amazing!

You probably don’t even think you’re a fan either, but what you don’t know is that you are.  You either grew up with this music or you’ve had it shoved into your ears over the past decade  

Remember this VW Beetle ad?  

Now you do, and now you remember how awesome that ad was, and how much of a fan you are of that song, which means you’re a fan of E.L.O.  They may not have sold a single VW bug without ‘Mr. Blue Sky’!!!

or what about the trailer for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind??? 

THAT WAS SUCH A FCUKING AWESOME TRAILER, remember?  And the trailer is kinda how I remember the movie, and it probably wouldn’t be as re-memorable without E.L.O.!!  YOU LOVE E.L.O.!!!

E.L.O.?  More like E.L.F(ucking).O.!!!!!!!!!!

Setlist – Tightrope / Evil Woman / Showdown / All Over the World / Livin’ Thing / When I Was a Boy / Rockaria! / 10538 Overture / Secret Messages / Can’t Get It Out of My Head / Shine a Little Love / Wild West Hero / Telephone Line / Turn to Stone / Sweet Talkin’ Woman / Don’t Bring Me Down / Mr. Blue Sky

About Face

Bridget Jones’s Baby
Meet The Parents
Official Site | Trailer & Mo
R | 123 min

I was expecting nothing from the movie where Bridget Jones is expecting, mainly cause the trailer was so so so so awful Awful AWFULLLLLLLLL!!  It looked like a dreadful TV comedy of errors, and cheerie-o, pip-pip cheekiness, and thankfully, this third installment is none of that, although the soundtrack was cheesier than the world’s largest cheese sculpture 

Bridget Jones’s Baby finds BJ single again, but this time she and Renée Zellweger are thinner, and they both have a new face.  Bridget was much more charming with the girth, and those puffy red cheeks.  Same with Renée…

BUT, underneath this new face, today’s Renée Zellweger is still our same ye olde Renée Zellweger (who was like the Jennifer Lawrence of her time).  If you want to imagine the old faced Renée, you can particularly see it in any scene where she’s wearing glasses…

But for most of the movie she isn’t wearing glasses, but you start to get used to her face, in a way you start to get use to seeing what Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill look like today (which means they don’t look as good as Harrison Ford looks today)

OK, enuff about the face, and more about the actual movie… which stars FOUR Academy Award winners!!!  Joining Zel is former beau Colin Firth, pops Jim Broadbent, and new addition, as BJ’s doc – Emma Thompson, who also co-wrote the script!  Their accolades were not mentioned in said horrible trailer, but their skills punch up a movie that serves as nothing more than a delightful one that women will enjoy today and on cable TV for eons to come

Hugh Grant sat this one out, so the new rival for BJ’s affections is Yankee Patrick Dempsey.  I’m not much of a Dempsey guy.  I left him after Can’t Buy Me Love, and never got McSteamed up by any of his subsequent work.  He’s a good foil for Colin Firth in Baby, which makes the series feel a little new, while dwelling on BJ issues very old.  Plus, we forgot much of what happened in both of the previous movies, cause the last one was TWELVE years ago, so this threequel felt both new and old!  NEWSED!!!

Man, twelves years is a long time.  Last movie we personally saw Zel in was 2008’s Appaloosa and I didn’t even remember anything about that movie, especially the fact that she was even in it.  Had to look it up.  Anywho, we hold too much onto the past, but we need to move on. Renée’s face is what is, and now we’re ready to see it again in Bridget Jones’s Journey To Uranus

By the way, what’s with Jones’s?  Why not juss Jones’??  Didn’t these English people invent English?

And what’s up with Sarah Solemani and how come we’ve never have heard of her???  She’s like a Persian-English Winona Ryder!!!  Adorablezz!!!

Still Moving Is Still To Me

Willie Nelson
Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk
September 13th, 2016

Willie Nelson was always on my mind, but never high on my list of artists to see, not matter how high him or I have been in the past.  But I recently realized that he’s 83 years old, and although I can envision him on the road again and again until he’s 803, I don’t think he (or I) will make it that far, and so of course I had to see him before he enviably goes up yonder.  Plus, you never know – if you happen to catch his last show ever, you get to roll him up and smoke his dead body!  Sick, yes, but I didn’t write those lyrics – he did, and I bet in his will, he really wants his ashes smoked!

Anywho, the dude certainly looks like an 83-year-old dude (although he has forever looked like a dude in his 70s, even during in the 1980s!), but he still plays the guitar like he was a 53-year-old, and he STILL sounds like he did when he was 32!!!!  INCREDIBLE!!!!

This man is a national treasure, a country music spelunker doling out troves of down home Americana, decade after decade.  Do your civic and patriotic duty, see him in concert, and roll one up and smoke your own, before he dies

Setlist – Whiskey River / Still Is Still Moving to Me / Beer for My Horses (Toby Keith cover) / Good Hearted Woman (Waylon Jennings cover) / Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys (Ed Bruce cover) / Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground / On the Road Again / Always on My Mind (Brenda Lee cover) / Roll in My Sweet Baby’s Arms / Funny How Time Slips Away / Crazy / It’s My Life / Alexander’s Ragtime Band (Irving Berlin cover) / Me and Paul / If You Got the Money / Down Yonder /  Jambalaya (On the Bayou) (Hank Williams cover) / Hey Good Lookin'(Hank Williams cover) / Move It On Over (Hank Williams cover) / Georgia on My Mind (Hoagy Carmichael cover) / It’s All Going to Pot (Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard cover) / Bloody Mary Morning / Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die / I’ll Fly Away
