Fortune for a Quarter - I Love Quarters!

Today my fortune cookie read: “Now is a good time to expand your repertoire of skills and knowledge”

::Fasts forward to:: having not expanded a damn thing since I opened and ate this cookie two months ago, please ponder the expiration date of predictions. Short-term? Lifelong? Neverdontbelievethesethingstheyrestupid?

In a classic which-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg scenario, please ponder the balance this small paper holds between the function and number keys on the keyboard and ask yourself does this fortune come true for you or do you come true for it?

Expand my horizons. Criticism or jealousy? Hard to tell being that you’ve sucked yourself into a black hole of poorly rated reality television and microwaving leftover cheeseburgers, “expand[ing] your repertoire of skills and knowledge” is daunting, is it not? Shit, you mean, I…I have to do something about something?

I shit you not.

Had you known that choosing noodles for dinner would cause so much internal conflict, do you now regret your past choices, mymyhowtheykeepyouupatnight! and go back and change things now that hingsight is 20/20 and thus make you, what you think, is better off than you are now?

I am not young enough to know everything Oscar Wilde said and you’re clearly old enough to underestimate yourself enough that this “repertoire” of yours will get no expanding.

Had you known that these fortunes mean nothing ordothey? could you have done so fine a job turning it into free therapy?

Dual Diner Delights

Where Passaic Street meets Hackensack Avenue. Home to one slider burger mini palace – White Manna.
Rivaling it’s former sister location in Jersey City – a single “n’d” moniker of the same name - what began as a stand at the 1939 New York World’s Fair morphed into a 15x30' slice of vintage diner heaven.
A single whiff into an invisible fog of burger grease carries you to a half-moon shaped counter overlooking the cook who slaps down meatball-sized ground chuck beef onto a sizzling griddle.
Flattening the meat with a few slaps of the back of a spatula, the meat is topped with thinly sliced onions and American cheese - according to preference - and nestled into small potato rolls. No orders are ever written down at Manna, nor forgotten, where a single cook often manages over a dozen burgers on one tiny griddle at once. Served up on paper-thin plates, these burgers pack flavor, juiciness and originality that only White Manna can bring you.
Add a side of fries (with cheese!) fountain soda (coke,please!)pile on ketchup and pickles and take your first bite towards burger nirvana.

In 2006 we had the first full-length collaboration by two great techno/electro artists. Both from the techno capital of the world Berlin, Germany. We know them as Ellen Allien and Apparat. On that album we knew them as the 'Orchestra of Bubbles'. The single "Way Out" featuring vocals provided by Allien herself was a great departure from the typical electro sound. My favorite track on the album, "Rotary", has a sample that sounds like the the machine that would grab you in the Sonic pinball game for Genesis. That alone had be hooked.

Now Apparat and Allien are focusing on their solo projects. "Walls", Apparat's 2007 release is available to listen to on MySpace right now. Even though I loved his previous releases this one takes the cake. It's a more relaxed approach than the last two albums. See for yourself here.

Since I started talking about people featured on Bpitch Control I might as well fill you in on the new album coming out by another Bpitch member, or should I say members. ModeSelektor has a new release titled "Happy Birthday!" set for a September 2007. These guys are just as good as Apparat, I might go as far as to say they are better. I said might, but I won't. The album features, Apparat, TTC, Maximo Park, and the great Thom Yorke. I guarantee it will be amazing. If you want to hear a 45 second mash-up of the whole album go to their Myspace page.

Talk about run on post. I might as well add that Jahcoozi is one of my favorite groups also featured on the label. Check out their Myspace and the track BLN. You WILL fall in love.

50 Years and 28 Days Later...

Sunshine is the newest movie from director Danny Boyle. The director of the zombie-filled "28 Days Later" and gritty drug induced "Trainspotting". Boyle has a great way of taking characters and making you fall in love with them one moment and hate them the next. You will be screaming at the screen, "No, don't!", "Behind you!", or "AHH, ZOMBIE!". Well, not so much about the zombies, but you get what I am saying.

The sci-fi flick picks up 50 years from present day. The Sun is dying and the only thing we can do to stop it is to throw a bomb into it. God bless America! A team of scientists and astronauts are sent into space to bring life to the sun. The mission fails on flight Icarus1 and a second convoy, Icarus2 is sent to finish the job 7 years later. On the way to the sun the crew encounter a few problems a long the way resulting in repairs on the outside of the shuttle, and basic human nature within the ship. Cillian Murphy also returns in this Sci-fi adventure.

I thought the movie was amazing. From start to finish I couldn't really gauge if this was going to turn out well in the end. Don't worry I won't spoil it for you. Go check it out now while it's still in theaters. It's no Rush Hour 3 so it won't be in theaters long.

The picture to the right was taken from the sunshine website dedicated to documenting everything that went into the movie. Pictures from NASA of the sun like the one here and the struggle the crew had to go through training for the movie.

Go here to watch the trailer and get your mind-blown.

Bergman and Antonioni...

To find a great director whose career you can follow from start to end with no mistakes is very difficult. Directors who can basically define an era of film and set the precedent for many to come. Then to have two directors with those backgrounds leave us on the same day is very unfortunate.

Ingmar Bergman (July 14, 1918 - July 30, 2007) 89-year-old Swedish director well known for is 1957 movie "The Seventh Seal", and Michelangelo Antonioni (September 29, 1912 - July 30, 2007) 94-year old Italian film director left us July 30, 2007.

Both directors had great success, but still struggled in their old age for recognition. Bergman's last movie was directed in 2003, but still strayed from his directing habits. Antonioni's last was in 2004, but was not well-received.

Bergman's great style inspired many directors over his 60 year run in film. One of these directors shared a very close connection with him. Time magazine had an interview with Allen on his thoughts of this sorrowful day in film history. Netflix em kids!

Hardboiled crime fiction refers to a literary style pioneered by Dashiell Hammett in the late 1920s and refined by Raymond Chandler beginning in the late 1930s. Hardboiled fiction, most commonly associated with detective stories, is distinguished by an unsentimental portrayal of crime, violence, and sex. From its earliest days, hardboiled fiction was published in and closely associated with so-called pulp magazines. Later, many hardboiled novels were published by houses specializing in paperback originals, also colloquially known as "pulps." Consequently, "pulp fiction" is often used as a synonym for hardboiled crime fiction. The name comes from a colloquial phrase of understatement. For an egg, to be hardboiled is to be comparatively tough.

Geometry (Greek γεωμετρία; geo = earth, metria = measure) is a part of mathematics concerned with questions of size, shape, and relative position of figures and with properties of space. Geometry is one of the oldest sciences. Initially a body of practical knowledge concerning lengths, areas, and volumes, in the third century B.C. geometry was put into an axiomatic form by Euclid, whose treatment set a standard for many centuries to follow. Astronomy served as an important source of geometric problems during the next one and a half millenia.

Movement #18

Friday (pronunciation IPA: [fɹaɪ.deɪ] or [fɹaɪ.di]) is traditionally considered the sixth day of the week, falling between Thursday and Saturday, as it does in countries that adopt a Sunday-first convention. In countries adopting the Monday-first, and, in work-based conventions, it is the fifth day of the week.

Font Style Bullshit Mania!

Why hello there, blog reader! Heh, I didn't see you come in! Would you like some coffee? Cereal perhaps? I have Cap'n Crunch (with crunch berries!) Oh you came looking for a new font? That's fine, too. Let's have a look here and HOLY FUCK WHAT IS THIS.

Do you remember the days when the sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" was used to show every letter in this beautiful (AMERICAN) alphabet? Well, let me tell you, Buddy, those days have gone the way of the Dodo bird. "But Anthony, what has that amazing (AMERICAN) sentence been replaced by?" An excellent question, (your name here), one that I can answer!

Here it is, in all it's misery.
"Queen Elizabeth's proxy waved off Mick Jagger"

Just out of frame: the birth of Jesus Christ.

First-of-fucking-all, I follow no orders from some 300 year old Queen of Anywhere. Second of all, beforementioned 300 year old Queen's proxy (who i would suspect to be around her age) would have no strength to wave off Mick Jagger, a 300 year old musician. This sentence is bullshit.

I'm most offended because I am an American, and as such, everything I read, hear, and see should be in ENGLISH THE COUNTRY OF AMERICA THE GREATEST OKAY? So I'm going to take the liberty of changing this God-forsaken sentence into something a little more refreshing for all God Fearing Americans to enjoy. Want to hear it, here it go.

"George W. Bush's own hand waved off the country of his choosing for their negligence while beating up sharks."

Isn't that much better? It rolls off the tongue much faster, and it makes America look exactly what it should look like, FUCKING COOL. By the way, if you're not a Bush fan, you can replace him with any past President or present candidate of your choosing! Fun for all. Wait, fun for all AMERICANS.

Now I know where the dilemma would come in. "Ant! Ant! There is no letter 'j' 'm' 'p' 'q' 'x' or 'z' in that sentence! How do I know what these letters look like?" We-he-hell, this is a crap question, but I'll still give it the time of day. There doesn't have to be these letters in the sentence because they are far inferior to the one's in there already. Look at that sentence again, I'll wait. Pretty ball-busting good, right? Those letters would just take away from the awesomeness.
ALSO! You really want to know what those letters look like? Like, really, really want to know? Here's an idea, punch the fucking 'j' key on your keyboard, dumb ass! See what just came up?! A 'J', how's about that!

America needs to impress no other people ever, so I think it's time we used this new incredible sentence instead of that other sentence which is so useless and stupid and doesn't apply to Americans.

My point has been made.

The Darjeeling Limited: Not The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Since 'The Life Aquatic' I have been waiting for the The Fantastic Mr. Fox set to be directed by Wes Anderson. It's taken from the famous writer, Roald Dahl, who brought us such classics as 'Charlie and The Chocolate Factory' & 'James and the Giant Peach'. It looked like the movie was being put on hold for some reason. A few months back I heard from a friend about a new movie WA was working on starring Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Adrien Brody. I finally knew what the delay was. Now after months of waiting has the exclusive trailer for The Darjeeling Limited written by Anderson, Jason S., and Roman Coppola. The three starring characters go on a journey through India to "find themselves" after the recent death of their father. The trailer alone had me hooked once The Kinks song "This Time Tomorrow" kicked in. For fans of The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, and The Squid and the Whale I know you will love this.

Go here to see the trailer. The film is set for a September 29th, 2007 (limited) release.
The Fantastic Mr. Fox is set for some time in 2009. Cross your fingers.

Some Planet Fucking Earth

Planet Earth is a documentary running in Animal Planet shot in HD. It is one of the most ambitious televisual attempts at documenting the story of how life on Earth developed. The program took five years to assemble, was shot on razor-sharp high definition cameras, and is one of the most costly productions of its type. PE covers a vast amount of ground as computer graphics help illustrate the birth of the planet, with stunning photography capturing the evolution of the world and its inhabitants. Click that link up there to find out when it's showing on your tube next. You gotta see some of these shots these assholes get. And oh wait, here are some animal pictures to get you in the mood.

Oh Yes. That just happened.

Our Love

Nicotine is an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants (Solanaceae), predominantly in tobacco, and in lower quantities in tomato, potato, eggplant (aubergine), and green pepper. Nicotine alkaloids are also found in the leaves of the coca plant. Nicotine constitutes 0.3 to 5% of the tobacco plant by dry weight, with biosynthesis taking place in the roots, and accumulating in the leaves. It is a potent neurotoxin with particular specificity to insects; therefore nicotine was widely used as an insecticide in the past, and currently nicotine derivatives such as imidacloprid continue to be widely used. Light it up. Suck it in. Blow it out. No big deal.
