Lazy Weekend

Sunday, January 8th, 2006

Jason came up for the weekend from Albany for a haircut. He must really like his hairdresser to make a 4 hour trip here. After his haircut we just hung out watching TV and a few movies (Super Size Me, House of Wax, Re-Animator, Bedazzled).

Super Size Me was interesting at some points but just didn't do it for me. The premise was basically some guy wanted to see what would happen if he ate McDonald's food 3 meals a day for 1 month. You can imagine what happens.

House of Wax is the current remake of the Vincent Price classic. It also happens to be Paris Hilton's acting debut (at least in a movie where she keeps her clothes on). It was entertaining but irritating because all the characters would do the most rediculous things that get them into trouble.

Re-Animator is just a classic. I've seen it a few times and it just gets funnier every time I see it. The best part ever is when the (re-animated) severed head goes down on the chick. Awesome.

Bedazzled is also a great remake. It's about a loser who meets the devil who grants him 7 wishes. Great story, decent cast (Brendan Fraser, Liz Hurley, Frances O'Conner) and even a moral. Watch it!

I also played the second quest of The Legend of Zelda on a Nintendo emulator on one of my laptops. Even thought it is 20 years old this year I think Zelda is one of the best games ever! Playing it now totally brings back memories of the first time I played it back when I was in like second grade.

i liked supersize me way more than i thought i would. people need to be more responsible for themselves and say "i eat mcdonald's all the time and that is why i'm a lardass" instead of saying "mcdonald's advertising made me eat the food and i didn't know it was unhealthy." i didn't like the premise that unless you read the nutrition information, you probably don't know it's bad.

Yeah I totally agree. There was a really good argument about the lawsuit of those two tanks against mcdonalds. Basically they were saying it's mcd's fault they are so fat, but imagine what kind of shit would go down if mcd's acted more responsibly (according to the two chicks) and said "no you are WAY to fat, we aren't selling you any food." They would file a lawsuit against mcd's claiming discrimination. So stupid.
