What I'm Doing On My Vacation

Hey guys! In case you forgot, I'm taking some time off from The Site to catch up on some movies and TV shows. The Lair is still gonna be happening, next week! And I should be appearing on some episodes of The LAMBcast (apparently they need a guy who doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about over there) this month. But I do miss writing and connecting with my audience so I thought I'd tell you what I been up to! Yay!

-I've made a New Years resolution to respond to every comment I get on The Blog. I been really horrible about that and to everyone I apologize. Sometimes it's just easier to go on Facebook, see the person in FB Chat and respond that way. But I won't be doing that no more! So leave those comments! I shall respond!!

-I've been catching up on some TV shows I been wanting to check out. I just finished Season 2 of The Venture Brothers and holy fuck is it awesome! It's better than Season 1 I think. Easily the funniest animated show I've seen in awhile. I'm officially mad at society for not telling me about it sooner.

-I also caught Season 1 of "Spaced", a 1999 BBC show starring Simon Pegg and directed by Edgar Wright. If you like "Shaun of the Dead" or "Hot Fuzz", check this show out. It's friggin hilarious! And there's a shit-ton of movie references in almost every episode. It's great. I still need to see Season 2 (sadly the last, BBC doesn't keep shows on too long...unless it's Doctor Who.) so I look forward to that.

-A bunch of LAMBs that ARE NOT me got nominated for this award thing at Total Film. Almost all of them are friends of mine so I can't even decide who to vote for. But you, on the other hand, might not have that problem. So go over there and be like "I choose you [Blog Name]!" and make somebody named NOT JASON SOTO happy.
(Seriously, didn't that blow job count for ANYTHING?)

-Maybe I'm just getting old but doesn't seem like pop music sucks lately? Anytime I'm in the car, I turn the radio station on and there's nothing but fucking crap on. Well, it might just be the radio stations here in Central Indiana. When I lived Outside of Chicago, I didn't have that problem. There's only one modern rock station here and they seem to only play Nickleback and some band called Shinedown and that's pretty much it. Jesus, Central Indiana, broaden your horizons already. Well anyway, I've been forced to listen to Indie Rock and found a lot of stuff I like, including MGMT and Black Keys. Well, Black Keys are gonna be on SNL so I dunno how Indie they'll be. God, I'm a scarf and old fashioned bike away from being a hipster. I should just get it over with and buy some PBR. Kill me now.

Anyway, I LOVE this MGMT song:

That's all. Stay awesome, be excellent to each other, and party on Wayne!

Spaced is awesome. Glad you caught up with it. The show is easily my favorite thing Edgar Wright has made. It's an equal mix of brilliant writing, hilarious gags and unabashed geekery.

James-I totally agree!

Nick said...

My favorite episode of "Spaced" is the episode where they do the imaginary fighting with invisible guns and weapons and stuff. It's brilliant.

Tom Clift said...

I totally agree with Nick - that sequence is BRILLIANT.

I also agree with you Jason, that song rocks (despite YouTube blocking that video in Australia "on copyright grouds" ...fuck that)

I need to get on the Spaced wagon meself. I think it's on Netflix, but not streaming. Oh well, should be worth it.

The LAMBcast LOVES people that talk out of their ass! Trust me, I'm one of 'em!

That was a shitty response to James' comment. ;)

You could just choose me for that Total Film thingy. Name another nominated site that comments on your site more? I double dog dare you.

Haha, you're a shitty hipster - that MGMT song came out like 2 years ago.

Spaced is pretty awesome! And for the record, I'm not a hipster. And that MGMT album came out, at least, last year sometime.
