Have you ever seen the Cromartie Anime? The dub is incredible.
I have not. Just from stills, I find that the look of color animation takes away from the way the drawings satirize Ryoichi Ikegami - but that definitely wouldn’t stop me from tracking down the anime when I get the chance.
every once in a while somebody asks me about having an amazon wishlist, and while the idea of getting a bunch of stuff just for existing definitely appeals to me, it also seems really scary. maybe it’s because i was stalked by a stranger a while ago, but i just assume it would immediately lead to a situation where some psycho feels like i have to put out somehow because he bought me my favorite pen set online.
where are you getting all these movies you're watching this month?
this actually makes my whole blogtober program way less interesting: just stolen netflix and hulu and hbo accounts. i don’t have too much money and i have even less physical space, so i don’t really buy DVDs very much anymore. i don’t have a computer so i can’t DL anything, and i don’t go outside so i don’t wind up at a theater too often.
i was looking at your archive and you have a huge number of anon weirdness going on. did you have a post blow up and gets of followers or something?
my blog has been around for a couple years, and i always answer anonymous messages unless they’re so dumb i just can’t even find anything funny to say. the number of followers i aggregated over a decent amount of time, plus my apparent approachability, makes for a lot of anon activity. the “I COME ANON” link in my page’s sidebar collects them all.
i should actually mitigate my claims, though, by saying that i often think every anonymous message has come from the same two or three guys. i think that’s as likely as anything else.
Ha, this is the right way to ask questions on his blog. I only ever saw the first episode and found it very forced and artificial in spite of its presumed grittiness, but I’ll probably check it out more someday.
Their knowledge of him probably climbs back to 1999-and-beyond Walken and stops. Kind of like how everyone’s latter-day Pacino is a lot of screaming and a HOO-AH
yeah, that’s probably true, although i think pacino is more guilty of devolving into self-parody, than he is a victim of the ignorance of collegiate dickheads who fancy themselves the life of the party.
I feel bad for all those guys who think they have a “real good” Walken or John Wayne.
the worst thing about christopher walken impressions, which are the main thing people really fucking insist on inflicting on others, is that they boringly make christopher walken into “a guy who talks weird” instead of a really talented actor and dancer, and they also subtly suggest that he’s a big serious freak with no self-awareness, as if he hasn’t been really funny in lots of comedies. christopher walken impressions are my least favorite thing anyone has ever said to me.
i find impressions really miserable, they’re always just a stupefyingly obvious exaggeration of one unusual quirk, and they’re right up there with song-jokes as gags that take too long to get the point across: you have to do all the lyrics on a certain tempo for me to know what song you’re lampooning and why it’s supposed to be funny, just as you have to say enough lines of dialog for me to know who you’re trying to humiliate and how good you are at it, meaning i have to sit there for an unbearable amount of time waiting for your routine to finish itself off.
the only funny impression in the history of impressions is the one ladyphibes does of james mason, but i don’t think she’ll do it for you.
