Soho 'Goddess'

Where did this Frank Caliendo guy come from? And why does everyone seem to think that he’s funny?

Everyone must think he’s funny because he’s getting his own show on TBS. From what I can tell… He seems annoying and very unfunny.

Why does every generation need a Rich Little?

Just when we get through the Martin Short and Dana Carvey era, we get this Frank Caliendo guy?! Are people that desperate for entertainment that they need an dumbass on their televisions doing impressions?

I just don’t get it.

--It seems that I’m going to see the new film Beowulf simply because I’m a sucker for 3-D movies. I’m certainly not seeing it for Angelina Jolie. To me, that woman is hideous.

I will see just about any piece of crap if it’s in 3-D. Friday The 13th 3D was cool. The way the eye popped out and how the implements of death came sailing out of the screen.

Jaws 3-D really sucked. Underwater films just don’t make good 3D flicks. It was too murky, very unrealistic, and very bad.

I have never read the novel ‘Beowulf’, so I have no idea what it’s about. I have a feeling that there’s lots of fighting and stuff, but that’s about it. I just remember that it was required reading in English class and for some reason, it didn’t happen for us. I was relieved because I had no desire to even look at the cover. Classic literature never appealed to me growing up and it still doesn’t. And I don’t want to get started on the works of Truman Capote. I had to read a couple of his short stories in high school and they were as exciting as reading the contents in a box of condoms.

I hear that Angelina Jolie’s animated body will be naked in Beowulf. I will just have to remember not to eat beforehand.


  1. Hi, how are you???,I'm from Argentina,I'm new in this
    Please enter to my blog...Ihope you know spanish

  2. Beowulf is a tremendous epic poem - essentially the oldest piece of existing English language literature. It's interesting to read if only to get a good look at what exactly the Anglo-Saxon culture valued in their warriors and what they considered the high-water mark of humanity.

    Related books of interest: Michael Crichton's Eaters of the Dead: The Beowulf story told from the perspective of one of the people who travel with him to the land of the Danes to fight Grendel. The movie The 13th Warrior is an adaptation of this.

    John Gardener's Grendel: The life and times of the monster himself - a really great exercise in shifting points-of-view in literature.

    You'd think on the weekends I wouldn't want to think about this stuff...there's a reason I love my job.
