you're not a plate of croissants


since yesterday's movie watching was filled with bad, bad movies today i decided to only watch good movies. oddly enough, they were all canadian movies too.

first i watched a film called Highway 61 starring the great and mighty Don McKellar (remember how much Twitch City ruled?). it's an odd tale about a barber in small-town northern ontario (one small enough that they refer to Thunder Bay as "the city") who gets mixed up with a woman from a metal band trying to smuggle drugs to New Orleans while being pursued by a man who thinks he's satan trying to claim the dead body they're transporting.

it's a fun movie - certainly not an academy award winner, but definitely worth hunting down in your local library. which is what i did.

then came Brain Candy. i don't think i need to go too much further than to say that this is one of the best movies that ever existed. some of the finest work that the Kids in the Hall ever put together. 10 years later and i'm still waiting for the follow-up to this, though the other films i have slated for the rest of the day (Dinner at Fred's, Dog Park) all involve other Kids in the Hall.

perhaps i will also partake in some Katamari. Katamari is fiendishly addictive.

    When I was in high school my Gay Boyfriend bleached his eyebrows. We called him Cancer Boy until the color came back, and he did that laughing that people do when they think they should be offended.

    one time, on Twitch City, Sloan had a 5 second cameo as young and earnest neo-nazis. Don McK rules the universe.
