My kids loved this movie. Okay, I did too. ( Did I really admit to this? ) It’s totally silly and immature. But we watched it repeatedly. Kind of the way we always watch Idle Hands when it comes on. “Classics” at Ananda house in a box. 1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drop_Dead_Fred
The big scoop is that it’s being remade. http://news-briefs.ew.com/2009/04/russell-brand-t.html . Rik Mayall was the original Fred.
So here is the real question… should it be remade?
Keeping with the theme of entertainment, here’s a FYI for you Trekkies : Tomorrow night , ( Tuesday) catch Fringe. “We'll finally meet Dr. William Bell (special guest star Leonard Nimoy), Walter's partner in weird science from back in the day.” According to Yahoo! TV Blog page where you can find out about the season finales, who will be back next season and who is not making it back next season.
It’s Monday… for those who know, no surprise… I’m off to my usual hurry off to the town on the left and sit around waiting to come home again evening. Not to worry… I’ve got Slaughter House Five with me (again and again) tonight.
We had a good chuckle the other morning. Max, Squeaky and I were in the car and met with road construction. We all did what we do… grabbed our books from backpacks and tote. Our hands all came up with Vonnegut books. Squeaky is reading Timequake, Max was finishing up Sirens of Titan and I was back with Billy Pilgrim in his box car corner. What are the odds of that?
Squeaky says “Everyone else is stupid..” (Nearly all the kids chose books that they thought would impress the teacher… like A Farewell to Arms or Grapes of Wrath. “They’re reading all this heavy sh*t and I’m sitting there laughing my fecking ass off!” He was talking about reading the event in Timequake where the cheating wife is surprised by her husband. Her lover hides, naked in the rafters, but “his tea bags” are a dangling… When the husband peers up into the darkness and asks what those are, she tells them that they are Chinese bells.
I’m sorry, you will have to read the result, which is beyond doubt one of the most ridiculous and marvelously funny events… as only Vonnegut can write. I do not doubt a bit that Squeaky was laughing his fecking ass off. Just thinking about it, makes me laugh out loud.
Hey, have a wonderful evening. I’m going to. Vonnegut never fails to entertain.
