12:01 am - Movie Night
So aduncous and lzbnangel and I tried watching Koyaanisqatsi tonight. It SOUNDED really cool on paper, and the critics went nuts over it, but... my fucking god, it moved slower than major league baseball. I'm sure I'll give it another chance one day when I'm bored, but sheesh. 15 minutes in, we gave the fuck up and proceeded to plan B.

Banned cartoons from the 1940's! Oh my god, that shit was HILARIOUS. I'd love to hear the kinds of angry songs Chuck D would immediately produce, like within 5 minutes, if somebody tried to make another Little Black Sambo cartoon. We were all dying. (It really helps seeing them on a big screen, too. Those cartoons were NOT designed for TV sets, and you really see that once you see them on a bigger screen.)

I wonder what people from the 40's would think of our entertainment?

Current Mood: happy
Current Music: Fatboy Slim - Everybody Loves A Carnival

Honestly, I'm not entirely sure. We got pretty lost pretty quick - we could have used a twinkie factory AND a visine factory.

you really have to be in the mood for koyaanasqatsi. they made us watch it all the time in film school. it DOES start out really slow but if you make it through to the end the pay off really is worth it.

Holy Jesus

Jimbo, you guys SERIOUSLY tried to watch that freakin' movie?!? We were forced to watch and critique it in Music History III, and we all almost committed group suicide. 10 minutes in, we were almost comatose...I can't believe you made it 15 minutes in. Wow. I mean, I understand the CONCEPT of it...but seriously.
