Project, Week 2

Last week was difficult, I mean doing the project was difficult. It was the last week at work before the second half of my summer holiday, so I had a lot of things to do. But I did write the review for The Inheritance by Witherscape. I didn’t finish any books, I just read some more of Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi and If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino. They aren’t easy books, so it will take some time for me to finish them.

Anyway, this summer has been quite revealing for me. Or once, I’m starting to understand what I really want in my life. I don’t know how, that’s a different story, but knowing what I want is really a good start. How zen! (Not…) All my life, I seem to have avoided clear goals, perhaps because plans usually change because life never goes 100% as planned. And I’ve always wanted things to be certain. If there’s even a possibility of uncertainty, the doesn’t sound too good to me. Until now.

But I’m on my holiday and I’ll take it easy this week, so I’ll won’t probably be reading any books (unless something comes up and I get the inspiration to grab either book, or a new book). I think I’m going to finish the first season of Arrested Development, a great American tv comedy. And a half of my family has their birthdays this week, so I need to get some birthday presents for them. That’s my project week #3. Simple.

Anyway, here’s the band of the week (or month). Latvala Bros, a band formed by Roope Latvala after Stone disbanded in the early 90s (and way before Roope joined Children of Bodom), with his brother who plays the drums. It’s instrumental thrash metal, nothing less, nothing more, but it’s still damn good.

Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death

Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death (1999) is an exceptional Doctor Who spin-off. Rowan Atkinson as the Ninth Doctor makes it a “Blackadder meets Doctor Who” parody. Or more precisely, it’s “Blackadder meets Doctor Who meets Absolutely Fabulous“, as both Julia “Saffy” Sawalha and Joanna Lumley play in this little DW parody episode. Nice.

In addition, Hugh Grant (who also appears in this episode) would have been an interesting choice as the official Ninth Doctor. What would that have been like?

“Death or Ugu?” … “Death It Is! But First: Ugu!”

Gilbert Gottfried - 2008.03.28

The title of this post comes from “Dirty Jokes“, a live stand-up performance by Gilbert Gottfried. It provides the dirtiest jokes ever told, or almost. Well, the dirtiest jokes you can tell without getting arrested in most Western countries, anyway. And this one is about two missionaries captured by an African primitive tribe. You can guess the rest. Or perhaps not. I’m not going to write the joke here as it would.. Well, never mind.

Now, an awkward transition. Previously, I wrote about how ridiculous metal bands may seem to people. Well, there actually are headbangers who also do stand-up comedy. One of them is Steve Hughes, an Australian who used to play in Slaughter Lord, Mortal Sin and Nazxul. As some of you may know, Slaughter Lord was the band who had a song “Legion” on their very first demo tape. Almost ten years later, the same song was covered by At The Gates, and it was a wonderful version. For years, I didn’t even realize it wasn’t written by ATG themselves.

Steve isn’t ridiculous, he’s just funny and hilarious. Check out this clip from Steve’s Swedish tour.

I’m going to end this post with an interesting Rammstein cover version. No explanation needed. A perfect warm-up band for Rammstein.

P.S. What about the question “Death or Ugu?” Well, try to find the joke on Youtube. And also, check out Brian Posehn‘s Slayer act.

Movie of the Month: Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead (Zonbi asu)

Danger! ZOMBIE ASS: Toilet of the Dead – Zonbi Asu – is here and it will spread like a zombie virus.

Well, I must admit I’ve only seen the trailer of this magnificent Japanese zombie (and toilet) movie. Not yet. I’m sure it’s either a very bad movie or so bad you want to stick something sharp to your eyeballs to not see the rest of the film.

I wasn’t able to find so many reviews on this movie yet, but this quote is hilarious

Yes, this is not just a zombie movie, this is an alien ass parasite zombie movie designed purely to allow Iguchi to indulge in his love of the female posterior. Juvenile in the extreme the film is driven by ultra-lowbrow sight gags and splatter effects – both practical and CGI – laced with a heaping helping of shit and fart jokes.

Sounds like fun. Perhaps. Perhaps not.
