When Tarantino, more Tarantino.

I'm showing Kill Bill to my dad today. He was blown away by the Basterds, enjoyed Django, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Pulp Fiction confused him because he's not good with non-linear movies. All Tarantino movies are pretty out there and Kill Bill is hands down the craziest one, so this could be a disaster. But I need to know if he'll crack a smile.

Just saw the trailer for The Batman movie. Damn, it's so well put together! That's really rare these days. Music is fitting, you know what the story is and there aren't excessive action scenes.

I'm so glad my online friend through email suggested me to listen to Jane's Addiction. 👌 Can't get enough of their first two albums.

A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Finished 2 seasons into The Expanse. Not wasting any more time with it. It's a good show with a web of interesting plotlines, but I just plain didn't enjoy nor care for it. Not one bit. I find it's scope to be too narrow for a space sci fi. Mostly confined to just spaceships and space stations. Or Maybe I am just too stupid and buffoonish to really dig into the context of the overall plot.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

The Expanse does change things up in later seasons.
Although if your not enjoying it now, I don't think that the changes they made would win you over.

Oddly enough, I liked Firefly.
But yeah, I definitely jumping off the Rocinante. Not wasting any more time onboard.

I sort of only wanted to hear about the artefact, not the sort of political squabbling on the surface. I was like who is this guy I don't care. I sometimes quickened the speed of the video when they were doing that.

Yeah that reminded me of the covid outbreak too.
I think the problem with the political squabbling is that it's hard to care for that when you don't care much about the characters, which I think are rather weak for the most part.

I understand that. Firefly had a very different tone to it that of The Expanse. I have to wonder if having the crew stay on the ship a lot has to do with the show runners following the novels, or if they needed to make the series more like a bottle show to save money. I've read the first book in the series, and the first season does follow it fairly closely.

Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara welcomes their first child and they name him River. If you don't know him, River Phoenix was Joaquin's older brother, he was also an actor and he died of a drug overdose at age 23 so I think that's a depressing name.

I guess since it's spooky season, I find myself wanting to take a break from metal. I'm really feeling psychobilly instead right now.

Motherless Brooklyn is such a good start for Edward Norton behind the camera. It's like the fourth time I watch it already and I love it so much. Guess I like some stuff they call neo-noir but I'm not too versed in the genre. It encompasses quite a few years and films that are sometimes very different from each other. I'm happy it's an optimistic film, it's not one of the super dark depressing ones but the noir stuff is there. And the romantic bits don't annoy me, some scenes I caught myself smiling.

Wonder if he'll stick to directing though, since I read this was a bit of a passion project of his from all the way back to his Fight Club days. That's probably one of the reasons it turned out good, that he was invested. I'm also curious about the book now since I know it's significantly different.

"Fear of Creatures jumping up my Butt" is probably one of the best titles for a YT video I've ever seen.

Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there.

I enjoy a bunch of the Chili's songs a lot. I just don't like Anthony Kiedis much, or his sex-obsessed lyrics. But Flea and Frusciante work magic together. I'm happy they're playing with each other again. Also...

Beautiful song, great performance. Only problem is at 1:30 when they sing "And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people, maybe more" the audience goes "Wait, that's us!" and starts cheering, then they go on "people talking without speaking, people hearing without listening" and the irony makes me lol every time. Kinda ruins the moment for me a bit.
