Harold & Kumar Escape from G’Bay

Hello and welcome back to another edition LNC. Today I’m going to discuss a film released over the past weekend, the sequel to an all-time Late Night classic, Harold & Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay.

The Kenneth Bobblehead

World of Stuff

Kenneth Bobblehead BoxI have a great item for my first World of Stuff post. I just recently had a birthday, and I can always look forward to good stuff for presents. This year proved to be a bumper crop, and my first few column posts will cover some of them.

First up is a gift from my brother: the Kenneth Bobblehead. Many of you probably watch 30 Rock, so may be familiar with the eager NBC page, Kenneth Parcell, played by Jack McBrayer. He delivers food and cleans up barfs for the cast of TGS, the sketch comedy show in 30 Rock. Kenneth will do, and has done, just about anything for television. So over the course of the show, the character has amassed a good number of quotes.

Jack on BoxEnter the Kenneth Bobblehead. Its head bobs around like one would expect, but it also comes loaded with some of the best Kenneth quotes from the first season of 30 Rock. Some of the quotes include, “Would you like me to dance for you?”, “To the wig shop!”, and “This mess is gonna get raw like sushi, so haters to the left.” The quotes are read by Jack McBrayer, who can be seen lurking on the side of the box. But the audio isn’t taken from the episodes, so they lack some of the inflection from the video. It sounds a little more like Kenneth reciting the quotes after the fact, as if he were thinking back on some of the weird things he had said while working at TGS.

Review: Zach Galifianakis Live at the Purple Onion

Late Night Cinema

zach-galifianakis-6.jpg

There are very few people I trust for recommendations when it comes to comedy. The last time someone told me, “Oh man you gotta catch this show its sooooooo funny you should check it out!,” the show was Two and a Half Men.

One person I do trust for comedic recommendations is fellow Thereforeyou poster Patrick. For Christmas he gave me a DVD entitled Zach Galifianakis: Live at The Purple Onion.

WARNING: DO NOT WATCH

 

The DVD hits shelves today, but do not allow yourself to be fooled by clever marketing campaigns- this movie is not good. Even an extremely badass dragon could not salvage this example of why cgi should never be used to try to replace live actors. Or a good script.

Play it again, Ed.

If you want to learn a thing or two about Therefore Production’s sense of humor, than I suggest you get yourself to your nearest book seller make yourself at home with Edward Gorey. (And if you are very good maybe some day we’ll even show you our Edward Gorey tribute film.)

If you happen to be unfamiliar with him, Edward Gorey (1925- 2000)?is most famous for his work as an illustrator, particularly his work on T. S. Elliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats (please note: he had NOTHING to do with the musical-that-shall-not-be-named!), but his personal projects were what earned him his substantial cult following. He blends storytelling that is child-like in its simplicity with detailed gothic?pen and ink sketches and an?irrepressibly wicked sense of humor. He was rocking comedic horror before Tim Burton was born. His most famous piece is “The Ghastlycrumb Tinies,” an alphabet book of children’s death. One of my favorite panels from this story, courtesy of Google Image Search,?is after the jump:

So, uh, who did the Grammy go to?

Did you know that there were 110 Grammy Award categories last night?

And how many made it on air? By my best estimate, 7.

What the hell? Now, I get that you can’t televise 110 awards. It would be downright dull. But there were some major categories left out; almost everything having to do with rock and pop got cut, and R&B only fared slightly better. And if you happen to like jazz, or (dare I say it) classical? Out of luck, my friend.

So, with only 6% of the awards making it to the air in a 3.5 hour broadcast, what did we get instead? A little bit of good, a whole lot of mediocre, and an suprising amount of downright ugly. Some of the highlights and lowlights after the jump.

The Ultimate Love/Skate Relationship

Review: The Cutting Edge, PG, 97 min. (MGM) 1992

 

She’s a wealthy pairs figure skater whose elitist attitude has her competing solo. He’s a no nonsense hockey champion whose latest injury may have cost him his career. Individually, their Olympic hopes are fading. But together, Kate Moseley and Doug Dorsey will have an opportunity to make their dreams come true; that is, if they can only figure out how to get along. Olympic gold and an unlikely romance are at stake when two skaters from two different planets unite to take on the world.

This movie is weird.

There Will Be Numb Asses

There Will Be Numb Asses

I went into “There Will Be Blood” aware of the fact that the word “masterpiece” was being bandied about quite liberally, which is not to say that I walked in with doubt or cynicism. I was excited. I expected a masterpiece, as P.T. Anderson is very well capable of producing.

Happy Music (The Go! Team)

Thunder, Lightning, Strike Album ArtA long time ago, I downloaded a trailer for the game Little Big Planet for the Playstation 3. The game has a cute, casual style and looks insanely fun, but what struck me in particular was the background music. It was catchy, fun and fit the game perfectly.

I assumed that the music had been created for the game, but I recently learned that it was written and performed by The Go! Team. The track I heard is called “Get it Together”, from the album “Thunder, Lightning, Strike”. I’ve listened to the full album (available on their website store and iTunes), and I highly recommend it. Overall, “Thunder, Lightning, Strike” has a feel-good, high-energy sound with a warm, grainy quality. You can listen to a sample of “Get it Together” here:

Also, you can watch a music video for their song “Junior Kickstart”, a documentary about The Go! Team (shot on super8), and the Game Developers Conference video of Little Big Planet after the jump.
