(Bullet Point) Iâ€™m not here to surprise. Iâ€™m excited. Hopefully, there will be some mention of the last two Def American albums, the indie albums, and what has been happening since 2000. I find this him fascinating. Iâ€™m confortable with the predictability of it all. Edgy? Offensive? Bill Hicks? Please. For better or worse, there was nothing like this manâ€™s comedy. He looks terrible. The skin underneath his eyes looks as though itâ€™s seeking an out-of-court settlement with the rest of his face. Round 8 for that one.
(Bullet Point) I have not seen Zodiac, butâ€¦..Iâ€™m excited. Iâ€™m half-confident that David Fincher has made his first movie that falls outside of the Clever Art for Stupid People category.
(Bullet Point) Is this still interesting to people? Is a mainstream 80â€™s aesthetic (that has nothing to do with the music, sonically) still entertaining herds of idiots?
â€œWith his midriff-baring t-shirts and loose-limbed dance moves, !!!â€™s Nic Offer is a total goofball in the unselfconscious way that only really cool guys can get away with being. If youâ€™ve ever attended a performance by !!! or Offerâ€™s former band, Out Hud, then youâ€™re familiar with his repertoire: the Christ-like wingspan, overhead clapping, shimmying hips, gangly duck-walking, dervish spins, scissor kicks, and humpy pelvic thrusts. Itâ€™s like the mutant spawn of step aerobics, Flashdance, and Electric Boogaloo in an arena-ready package: ridiculous, extravagant, and completely awesome. Offerâ€™s stage presence isnâ€™t just deeply entertaining; itâ€™s an ice-breaker that gives us permission, by example, to forget ourselves and celebrate with abandon. You can tell heâ€™s having a hell of a time, and his enthusiasm is infectious.â€
(Bullet Point) Ok, back to the excitement. These future reads make me smile:
