Right on, Liz Lemon. Right on.

See, guys? This is why, when my love of baseball died a natural girly death when I went away to college, I didn't miss baseball. The gnawing disappointment, the spooky feeling that you, and you alone, are controlling the fate of your favorite team, the crushing and agonizing overinvolvement that you KNOW is ridiculous, but you just can't STOP CARING and WISHING THEY HAD FINISHED DEAD LAST LIKE THE TWINS IN '93 SO THAT IT WOULDN'T HURT GOD THE PAIN.

I am eating a giant slice of sausage pizza to numb the Feelings, invalid as they are. [livejournal.com profile] aj and I walked over to Corner Pizzeria where the speakers blare Sinatra at all hours. Even 8:00 a.m. when CP isn't open. This morning, an African-American mother of two burst out the door of CP during non-business hours (I'm guessing she either owns it or sets them up with breakfast muffins or something) and said in a tone that was either facetious or earnest, "Don't you just LOVE this music?"

I mean, yes, I do. But every morning with the "My Way" or "Fly Me to the Moon." A girl has her limits.

WHY?! WHY DID DEMPSTER FAIL ME?! HE GREW AN ALLURING GINGER BEARD!!! WHERE WAS THE POWER OF HIS MIGHTY ONTARIAN WHISKERS?! GOD IT HURTS SO BAD.

(several bites of subpar giant pizza later)

Okay, so then I watched P-Run.

This is a conversation I believe happened in the Hamptons after the airing of last week's ep...

Tim: Victor?
Victor: Yes, honey?
Tim: I know you're trying to be supportive, and I appreciate that you went through all the trouble to glitter paint the UP YOUR ASS, YOU DISRESPECTFUL WHORE sign, but...well, I'm her teacher and...
Victor: Tim, I told you that when you look over the tops of your glasses like that, it only makes me want...
Tim: Oh, stop. And for God's sake, please take the effigy of Kenley down from the kitchen doorway. Jen and Violet are coming over later, and we don't want to give her nightmares.
Coco Chanel the Pom: *bark bark!* (roughly translated from Pom: But Daddy, she IS a disrespectful whore!)

After this week's ep? I don't know, maybe Heidi will come over, she and Victor will get drunk on a few bottles of good syrah, and the effigy will go back up. After all, Jen and Vi can't be in New York forever.

I HAVE HAD TO FIGHT MY WHOLE LIFE! )

WHY????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? ALL YOU NEEDED TO DO WAS JUST...WIN!! IS THAT SO HARD, CUBS? JOE MANTEGNA JUST SAID AMAZING, WARM, WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT LOVING YOU IN A YAHOO! COLUMN TODAY!!!

The pizza isn't helping. Maybe if I make an effigy of Kenley.

But seriously, in hilarious news, if you like laughing about and loving Horatio Caine, this is one of my favorite posts from last week. Genius.

Also, if you love random shots of TITUS being all TITUSy, [livejournal.com profile] piecesofalice provides them in the comments of my recent lazy picspam of Life.

Be grateful you will not hear from me tomorrow, as I will be at the Gomez concert, trying desperately to earn good karma by being happy and involved in Not Cubs related life activities.

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] piecesofalice: Carla Gugino, looking flawless and caramel-eyed and like she might enjoy having a scotch and a vigorous hair-brushing.

Seriously, isn't that dress so pretty? Isn't her skin amazing? And her hair? And those...nose? / MST3K

FYI: as [livejournal.com profile] taraljc and Pieces have so aptly demonstrated, if you have a Carla sighting, the best thing to do is send me a link right away. So that I can hide the pictures of Maggie Lawson that I was looking at.

And speaking of that Righteous Kill movie, you know, I haven't asked her, but that is one of those movies that Duse would be way more excited for than me, but I'd go with her, and then end up enjoying it. It's funny, but Duse just called my cell the other day to mention a quote she remembered from The Hours, a movie she was passionately in love with (clearly, with the quoting...dude, I remember jack and shit from that beyond Ed Harris being Sensitive and Nicole Kidman having a falsie schnozz), and it reminded me that sometimes her enthusiasm and observations make me see a film a new way. Or want to see a film at all. Or rewatch a film I previously decided to be lukewarm about.

In spite of my razzing of There Will Be Blood, Duse really liked it in a very enthusiastic, unpretentious way, enjoying the score and the performance PERFORMANCE! of DDL. I was therefore forced to admit, beyond my "stylized" jokery, that the reason I didn't like There Will Be Blood, besides feeling a little overwhelmed by DDL, was that unlike other PT Anderson films, TWBB was about the absence of love. It was this dark portrait of an inhumane and destructive man who ruined every bit of love and humanity around him, whereas Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Punch-Drunk Love were all about the "ranks of the freaks who suspect they could never love anyone" finding just that, belonging, loving with an open heart. Sometimes being hurt or embarrassed or addicted to coke so their giant dingdong won't work, but in the end: love.

Dude, even No Country for Old Men had the light in the horn. And that was a COEN BROTHERS movie.

Nerd alert. Nerd alert. Okay, I'm done now.


Psych! I'm actually going to talk about how I watched Thumbsucker last night/in the wee small hours of the morning.

But first, P-Run: ha ha ha ha ha ha ha MICHAEL KORS I DON'T CARE THAT YOU'RE A TANGERINE-TINTED BUFFOON! YOU CALLED SUEDE OUT ON THE THIRD-PERSON THING! HUZZAH HAPPY DAY! And that Kenley...jiminy, disregarding Timothy and Nina Garcia's bitchface? Calling Heidi ridiculous? Check out the brass ovaries on that Bettie Page wannabe.

Blayne's design did look like fabric poop. And while I didn't get Jerrell's, I felt vindicated that Tim's prediction that if J. executed that the judges would love it was right on.

And then on to Thumbsucker. You know, this is a great segue from P-Run to this movie, because it sort of made me feel like Tim (and not in a planning-a-soiree-at-my-Hampton-digs-with-Victor-who-yelled-at-the-poms-for-chewing-up-a-rare-Assassins-vinyl-so-Tim-felt-bad-and-bought-them-kidneys way). Like, I took a step back from the movie and saw things I liked, and I saw what the filmmaker was attempting to execute, but the hem was a little jacked and maybe if you lost the fur collar...you know?

Spoilers of a general movie variety )

I don't know. Anyone seen it who remembers it ([livejournal.com profile] morganaus!)?

Uh, and less spoilery than...well, D'Onofy )

ETA: Dear Alex Blagg: marry me.
