BYOB Archive for June, 2008

BYOB – Sunday


BYOB – Thursday…



BYOB – Tuesday… And On…

I don’t know how soon I will be adding the next entry… could be 10 minutes… could be 5 days…
Be careful out there.


BYOB – June 23

Your space, but please, I have noticed an increase in personal sniping and cursing in comments, and it is not welcome or needed. You can be entertaining without being foul-mouthed and hurling f-bombs at everyone else.
And “are you stoned?” and all its variations really should be banned from this blog and all others. This comment has joined Hitler in the category of accusations that go too far to be of value.


BYOB – Get Gu Weekend

What will a 152 minute running time mean to The Dark Knight?



Yes, I know…. barely here this week… it will be like this for a couple of weeks.
Play on…


BYOB – Delayed


BYOB – Another Airplane

Ah, for the travel to end…
But I think it will for a month or two… soon.
Meanwhile, you are left yet again to fend for yourselves for a while…


BYOB Tuesday…


BYOB Monday

Happy Monday… do you feel the quiet? Everyone is tired of talking about who’s losing their job next, who will get along with who in hopeless intermarriages, and the box office for movies no one much cares about. Heck, even the politics are getting quiet, as we are back to a fight between a Republican and a Democrat… sigh…
Here’s a look at New MGM, Same As The Old MGM.
But after that, it’s on you…


BYOB – Weekend

Not the first or last entry of the day… but someplace for y’all to purge before rushing to the cinema to experience Kung Fu Zohan…


BYOB – Thursday

For Andromeda venting or anything else… other than infantile fighting between people who love fighting more than thinking sometimes…


BYOB – Monday

Hello again from New York City, home of Broadway, where I have been catching up with the last wave of shows, finding two remarkable pieces – Passing Strange and The 39 Steps – and one sure-to-be-popular mediocrity with big music and strong performances and little else (In The Heights).
More to come, with a full day ahead… including airplane time. So tend to the flock, try to keep the The Dark Knight drool off the keyboards, try to keep the success and limitations of Sex & The City in perspective, come to peace with Wall-E‘s obvious appeal to kids who don’t go to movies for, and wonder aloud which film will be the sad story of June – The Happening, The Love Guru, Get Smart – or all of the above

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
~ Steven Soderbergh
