Remember when the trailers for Suicide Squad were all dark and moody? But then Batman v Superman was dark and moody and nobody liked it because it sucked?
Yeah, well, in completely unrelated news Suicide Squad has been rejigged with expensive new re-shoots to make a movie about murderers, rapists, arsonists and psychopaths a rollicking ride of hilarity and yucks!
Ben Affleck stated in interviews while on the publicity trail for this movie that it was too smart for him. Well I’m not sure what movie he was in or watching but there was nothing smart about this movie at all.
In point of fact one of its main problems is that it takes itself far too seriously and thinks it’s making profound and significant statements about power, god, responsibility and such, but it just doesn’t. In reality this movie is less like a wisened prophet espousing truths and far more like a first year philosophy/politics student that thinks they’re smarter than everyone else because they’ve read Atlas Shrugged.
Jon English, Australian rock/theatre stalwart and guy whose records my Ma would sometimes play when I was young, has died from post-surgery complications.
The All Together Now actor continues the trend of 2016 taking people that have always been a part of the background noise of our lives.
An enterprising soul with too much time on their hands has managed to unearth Taylor Swift’s old MySpace account. Because I have too much time on my hands I read through her old posts and two in particular jumped out at me.
Taylor Swift is currently dating Calvin Harris. Rita Ora previously dated Calvin Harris. That in itself is probably enough to cause Taylor to release the the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark, they shoot bees at you.
“ I feel like me and Taylor might have sex / I made that bitch famous ”
Kanye West did another thing. And I don’t think it’s a big deal. Turns out that I’m more a fan of music and Rock & Roll than I am a fan of being easily offended; because I have no issue with this lyric. Perhaps it’s time to hand in my SJW card.
Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 (1996) “We were sure we’d never see an end to it all…”
Pure unadulterated nostalgia.
Un-adult-erated. That’s what adolescence was for me; all adults were NPC’s. It was simply my friends and I let loose upon an unsuspecting world. This music video captures the essence of that era perfectly.
Let me just start by saying that I grew up with Alanis Morissette. She was a staple of mid-90’s radio so, whether I liked it or not, I spent my teen years listening to her commercially-indie heartfelt angst.
The “Jagged Little Pill” album was an absolute monster. It totally destroyed 1995/6. Like Godzilla, it crushed everything in its path.
