Welcome to Random Town! Population: 1 :(
Its Friday and like any other Friday in the office, I'm the only one here. I work at PriceWaterhouse Coopers, which allows unlimited sick days to employees. Its fortunate that they do this because everyone who works here has Frirus, which is the Friday Virus. Frirus isn't any danger to the nervous system or anything like that. The only harmful symptoms are increased laziness every 120 hours. The affects of Frirus are heightened by in climate weather such as, heavy rain or snow. The only way to treat Frirus is to call in "sick" to work every 120 hours (Friday begins on hour 121 of the week....unless my math is wrong if it is don't correct me. You get the point).
I was speaking with a fellow Beatles fanatic recently who said that he didn't like Paul McCartney's song writing. Paul is just as much the effin' DUDE as John, George, and Ringo. I was flabbergasted to say the least(and I never use the word 'flabbergasted').
So last night I watched Battle Royale with my best bud/roommate, Ryan Conner. He described it as one of the craziest movies I'll ever see. It was pretty wild, but I've seen crazier. Just in case you don't know what its about here is a brief description:
There is social unrest in Japan at the turn of the Millennium. Young teenagers are boycotting school and revolting against authority, so every so often to keep the numbers down on revolting kids, they are taken to an island and forced to engage in a competition where they battle to the death and only one of them is left standing. The competition is called THE BATTLE ROYALE
This movie had the two weirdest death scenes I've ever seen in a movie. In one death scene a boy was holding a girl in his arms whom he loved. She had just been shot with a machine gun and was dying. The following dialogue took place as she was dying:
GIRL: Oh God, please let me say just one more thing.
BOY: What is it? What do you have to say.
GIRL: Oh....you look really cool.
BOY: *begins to cry hysterically* I think you're the coolest girl in the world!
....and then the girl dies.
NOTE: THEY PROBABLY DIDN'T REALLY SAY THIS TO EACH OTHER. THE MOVIE WAS TRANSLATED FROM JAPANESE TO ENGLISH, SO I'M SURE SOMETHING GOT LOST IN TRANSLATION. I'M JUST SAYING WHAT THE SUBTITLES READ.
They probably actually said something like:
GIRL: I've always thought you were handsome.
BOY: You're the most beautiful girl in the world.
yadda yadda yadda so on and so forth.
I really want my last words to someone be, "You look really cool." I may even go the extra mile and say something like, "Your face looks like sexy time."
In the other weird death scene a guy got shot and died on the floor. There was a quiet moment and then a phone rings. He pops up (after being shot multiple times) answers the phone, has a fairly normal conversation. Throws the phone on the ground and shoots it....THEN he dies.
I watched the alternate ending to I Am Legend. The cover of the DVD says its "controversial". There is nothing controversial about it. Don't hold your breath.
