I was chatting with hipsterscum about DubStep, and he mentioned something about Skrillex. I ain’t never heard of him, but I mentioned that I heard a remix of the Ninja Gaiden theme that I liked. he said that wasn’t a very good remix, helping prove my theory that hipsterscum secretly hates everything! Wrath von MagicMist chimed in, asking that we never mention DubStep in his house again.
hipsterscum wasn’t the only one to have a topic of conversation banned on this nite. Marilyn Manson has a new album coming out, and is playing a show around these parts soon. so I said something about how Shia LaBeouf directed their new video. there was a brief discussion about the TransFormers movies, but Wrath closed by asking us to never speak of Shia again.
Wrath and hipsterscum went head-to-head over the D.R.I. discography. specifically, whether the Dirty Rotten album was an LP, EP, or both. multiple sources were cited including wikipedia and rateyourmusic, but in the end, both parties agreed to disagree.
hipsterscum brought up ChemLab, questioning whether or not they were actually ColdWave. this brought up another debate between he and Wrath, full of sound and fury, and signifying nothing. then hipsterscum started throwing out all these subgenres, so I excused myself to grab another beer. JUST WALK AWAY-WALK AWAY-WALK AWAY
a few weeks ago, hipsterscum introduced me to Nick Cave’s first band, The Birthday Party. a debate over their discography ensued, centering around the Drunk On The Pope’s Blood EP, which was only released in Australia. we believe he was working under the notion that Australians don’t have T3H INFERWEBZ!1!1! as of press time, he still has not responded to the email we sent him two days ago.
we had about 3 hours worth of shit to watch. much to his credit, hipsterscum watched everything except for the second episode of Frankenhole.
prom dates go awry, thanks to a case of head lice.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole
it’s been a while since I’ve seen this show, and I didn’t initially care for it. we watched two episodes. the first was Dr. Frankenstein entering his monster in the Halloween costume contest. the second episode was John Belushi (David Cross) and his less funny alter-ego, Jim. I had my wikipedia moment when I tried to pass off that the only way they could portray John in such a negative light (vomiting incoherent drunkard) was by not having him speak. it worked for about the first half of the episode.
combined score for the two episodes. the second was better than the first.
Jon takes David camping, as part of a rite of passage. Jon gets into an ecstasy-induced threeway with a backwoods militia couple; Todd Barry is raped at gunpoint by a Chinese prostitute on his wedding day.
Dwight and Packer compete for the Vice President job, by trying to have sex with the woman in charge of the promotion; Jim becomes uncomfortable by the overtly sexual advances of the secretary.
ISIS heads to the backwoods of West Virginia to help Ray’s brother (a drug dealer played by Jack McBrayer) protect his land against the local sheriff. the pride I felt for correctly identifying Jack McBrayer, was dampened by the fact that no one else knew who he was. this was the second show we watched that involved a backwoods militia type standoff.
this show was so hilarious, I totally forgot what it was about. there was a woman who played the harp. hipsterscum knew who she was. I remember saying that it was the best episode of the season. no one agreed with me.
we watched the season finale of The Life and Times of Tim, which I reviewed a few days ago, as part of my Simpsons 500th episode review. the cliffhanger leaves the door open for a fourth season, but nothing has been confirmed.
