The Neurotic Monologues
#1
Hello people!

I'm one of the new bloggers. Here's the first entry:

The Neurotic Monologues: On the Tele -- MotherFraker, Earth's a shithole!

I posted this last week, but I couldn't start a new thread in the forum until now.

Frieza,
...or maybe Freiza.
Freeza?

Both Frieza and Freeza are correct, apparently.

Not that I'd know...
...I'm much too adult and cool to watch anything as childish and uncool as Dragon Ball Z.
Ahem.

To my and my friends, Dragonball was just another painful but necessary step towards adulthood. Like puberty. And The Doors.

Frieza or Frieeza...That's it! Thanks lads!

My painful but necessary step towards adulthood had a lot more to do with Sailor Moon and Ranma 1/2.

Growing up can be very, VERY silly.

Right, because owning DBZ DVDs is for children. Not me. I'm a grown up. I don't own any DBZ DVDs. At all. Or Ranma 1/2 DVDs. None of 'em.

cough.

Ha ha.

But I totally get what you're saying, because I SO don't squeal like a little girl whenever I catch Saint Seiya reruns on tele, and I never, EVER owned the Saint Seiya stickers album.

As you wisely put it, AHEM.

Check out the DVD for Slither. Tons of extras, most of them hilarious, with almost as much watching time as the movie itself. Its one of my favorite DVDs.

I agree. I want some substance with my dvds. Fine, the movie is important. It has to still look and sound good, but give me a documentary and some commentaries, and weird extras from Zimbabwe.

Slither is a fine dvd like Brad said.

My favorite recent dvd set is the Hot Fuzz 3 disc set. It is so chock full of stuff on it, it even has a childhood action film from Edgar Wright. With commentary from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Now that's what I call special features.

Guillermo del Toro's films usually are packed with great stuff, since the dude loves to talk (God bless him for that).
And when I buy a DVD from an Apatow production, I know I'm getting my money's worth, especially the 2-Disc sets.

I knew I'd love Dr. Horrible no matter what, considering it has the nerdy power duo of NPH and Nathan Fillion.

I can't wait for the next installment.

I saw a couple of episodes of Tiempo Final.

There's this one with Diego Bertie where he plays a douchebag who comes up with an overtly elaborate plan to kill his wife for cheating on him with his business partner. I thought it was hilarious - particularly Bertie's overacting.

Some cheesy telenovela acting, but the production is slick.

Too bad they stiffed you on the Carradine fix.

Better luck next time.

I like your blog, by the way.

Ha! The overacting... It sure has made a few episodes look very very silly. Bertie isn't the only one to blame for this. Many actors have been on Tiempo Final to show the world they really just belong in telenovelas. I could name a few, but I better not.

But seriously, who should be blamed for the overacting: the actors for not making an effort, or the directors for not strongly recomending to cool it with the melodrama?

I guess we'll never know.

It's a combination of both. Most Latin American actors are theatrically trained, as I'm sure you know. And it's that old world theatrical training where it's all about projecting.

Then they cut their teeth on telenovelas where they are asked to give the most atrociously unrealistic line deliveries known to man.

And, on the side, they dub movies and tv shows by giving flesh and blood characters cartoon sounding voices.

I think whoever does Lisa Simpson also does Chloe Sullivan on Smallville but I would have to double check.

But, in the end, a good director should be able to curb those bad habits and most of the time they don't.

And good luck to you too.

It really can be a pain in the ass to deal with a creative career in a competitive field, while also balancing the ever present tidbits that daily life so kindly has to offer... bitch that she can be.

But remember that it's what also keeps the juices flowing. Use that frustration for your art rather than let it be a deterrent.

But you already knew that.

Giving up is way easier and enduring frustration, but you're so very right. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. And you should know, you already made your first feature.

And now I'm feeling a little embarrased about that post.

Silly me.
