So who is going to which shows?!
… has changed my life.
I have watched it in parts. First of all, the staged interviews at the beginning, I will admit, were cheesy and made me cringe a little bit. My being embarrassed for him faded, however, when my toes crunched into the curled position and stayed there for for the duration of my viewing it.
The entire concert is amazing. The costume changes, the live band, the choreography … even his lame banter. But the best part is definitely ‘Damn Girl.’ Put yourself in the position of one of Justin Timberlake’s female backup dancers for ONE SECOND. During this song, they are wearing a bra, panties and a garter belt. That’s it. Then they simulate lap dances on him. He slaps their butts. He gets within two millimeters of kissing them. CAN YOU IMAGINE? It’s BASICALLY like having sex with him, almost. I mean, that’s all it would take to get me to squeal. I almost came just watching it! Do you think they all have sex with each other after it? They have to. LINGERIE. JUSTIN. GRINDING. SLAPPING.

I can’t even begin to talk about how excited I am for this movie to come out. Like everyone else, I really love Donnie Darko; I liked having to decipher it, I loved the soundtrack and I especially got off on the humor. Finally, writer / director Richard Kelly is putting out his second feature film, Southland Tales.
The tagline is “Have a Nice Apocalypse,” which means he’s not veering away from the whole end-of-the-world theme. And yes, the Rock is in it, and in this film he’s cookin’ up the fact that he GOES BY HIS REAL NAME – Dwayne Johnson (nice name, not).
From Cinematical: The film “takes place in a 2008 where Los Angeles is on the verge of political and environmental disaster. Boxer (Johnson), an action star with amnesia, soon finds his life intertwine with the dysfunctional worlds of an adult film star (Gellar) and a cop (Scott) mixed up in a conspiracy. But from what I gather (and knowing Kelly’s work), there’s a whole lot more going on as well. I mean, just look at that poster — it definitely gives us a peek inside the complexity of the film. Southland Tales will finally make its new and improved debut in theaters on November 9.”
LOOK AT THE TOP LEFT CORNER. YES, THAT’S RIGHT. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE MEETS RICHARD KELLY. I’m going to walk out of this film and feel so satisfied with the world.
And, so far on the soundtrack listing:
Blur – “Tender”
The Pixies – “Wave of Mutilation”
Radiohead – “Planet Telex”
On a related note, I purchased Alpha Dog the other day as a treat to myself. Who’s in?
THINGS I LOVE ABOUT LOS ANGELES:
1. Art Brut — ‘Moving to L.A.’
2. HONEY-VANILLA LATTES FROM THE URTH CAFFE (where I once stood face-to-face with Jake Gyllenhaal)
3. THE TROUBADOUR, one of my favorite places to see live music in this country.
4. Three words: HOUSE. OF. PIES.
5. Two more words: DIDDY. REESE.
