heaven et hell

2 girls 1 cup

Yesterday, one minute ago, I successfully tracked down the mysterious person behind the photos of various popular bloggers here on lj. She is none other than yumnaaa and as I helplessly surfed her site, I stumbled on some of her YouTube videos, flickr pix and domain name, yumnaaa.com It was fun to say the least, but, of course, I got carried away with one of her communities on lj and followed several silly links on her stayslutty site.

After rebooting my computer not once, but several times, I returned to her YouTube vids and found a little project about the gross video everyone is talking about, that I haven't seen yet, and now that I've read a review on it, don't plan to see it. Thanks Xeni Jardin!

While Julz probably laughs her head off about my trying to search for the famous "2 girls 1 cup" video (at work), when I saw yumnaaa recording people's reactions on watching the video, I honestly thought it was a simply pornographic flick. I followed similar links on the YouTube site where yumnaaa, aka precious, has her own flick, to see if I could find the actual video, but I only manages to see other people's reactions to it while they watched it. I thought, what a trend. This is terrific! The only thing missing is a police officer somewhere in the background minding his own business while peeps record their reaction to watching pornography out in public. Wow!!

My reaction to what I thought 2 girls 1 cup was about, lesbian porn, don't ask. It's like the blind leading the blind, I imagine. Fighting fire with fire. Adding to the fuel. etc.

The reason I won't vote

After taking three on-line quizes, either I don't know who the candidate I'm voting is, or Hillary Clinton is the least likely candidate I should support. The first quiz lists the top five as:
  1. Duncan Hunter
  2. Fred Thompson
  3. Mike Huckabee
  4. John McCain
  5. Ron Paul

Next, quiz number two, resulted in these top five candidates:

  1. John McCain
  2. Fred Thompson
  3. Mitt Romney
  4. Alan Keyes
  5. Ron Paul

The third quiz gave these results:

  1. Mike Huckabee
  2. Ron Paul
  3. Joseph Biden
  4. John Cox
  5. John Edwards

If this is any indication of the types of changes I want, I guess the choice for me is a toss between McCain, Thompson and Huckabee, in that order. Since I usually vote for losers, I can further narrow these choices down to Fred Thompson.

Today's blanket sin
This year, the Golden Globe Awards were cut short. From the films that won anything, only three or four are films/shows I've seenn and tune in regularly. There will be blood earned Daniel Day-Lewis some recognition for best actor, Into the wild won an award for best original song "Guaranteed" by Eddie Vedder, Tina Fey got some recognition for best Actress in a comedy.

The losers, which I've either seen or wanted to see or tune in on a regular basis, are Adam Beach from Bury my heart at wounded knee a mini-series or motion picture and A wolf films/traveler's rest production. This film was beat by Longford and Longford's Jim Broadbent. The office loses an award for Steve Carell to David Duchovny, from Californication. The award for best comedy was given to David Duchovny instead of Alec Baldwin too. Extras took the best TV series award—hm, I think I've been meaning to watch that—instead of 30 Rock, but a bigger disappointment for me was when Jon Hamm, a Mad men actor, won the award instead of Bill Paxton of Big love. In fact, Big love and House both lost to Mad men for best TV series drama.

I wonder if Sean Penn's divorce might've seen Atonement winning best score coming, because the interview he did with LA Weekly sounded like he felt indebted to Eddie for his contribution to the film. It is sad about the break-up, but I'll be damned if I just let news like that flutter off like any other Hollywood marriage. If I can't hear about the details, then I'm going to make up my own.

I thought Michael Clayton would've won best motion picture, and it should be interesting to see Atonement, American gangster and Michael Clayton battle it out on the Academy's, but I'm still angry about the parts Catherine Keener is getting in film which don't seem to win her some kind of award. I guess it's not too late for her to win and Oscar for best supporting actress. We'll see, but I still think An American crime was totally sabotaged.
