I think the first 40 seconds provide important context.
... and then Starlord drops the mic.
I like how, if I ever meet Pratt, we have virtually polar opposite stories about this album circa the same year. I'd just moved from Oregon to Wisconsin and I had never experienced such cold weather, or what it was like to have no friends. That was when it got down to about 15 degrees fahrenheit in November.. yeah just wait. This and Next Episode were all over the place at the parties I reluctantly went to so I thought I'd spend Thanksgiving Break sitting in my dorm room getting to know the album while everyone else was home with their families. The heat was turned off so I'm sitting there on thanksgiving day with 3 coats on, blasting this album on Winamp in all its 96 kbps glory over and over and over again.

I do love Chris Pratt. I do.
However, he's what Hollywood thinks a normal person looks like.
Well, the female side of Hollywood's "Here's a normal-looking person" is about 1,000,000 times more ridiculous, with their quirky, flouncy, lovelorn next-door neighbors Jennifer Aniston and Zooey Deschanel.
It also cracks me up that Steve Carell is considered ugly by Hollywood standards.
I'll admit, I was pretty giddy when I submitted this, having just seen gotg that night. Despite glowing reviews and my own "I'm excited for this" postings on here, somehow I knew it was going to be a letdown. Being a fan of Gunn's other works (especially Super) I was worried Marvel would do to Gunn what it did to Raimi. Singer (although I love him) was pretty much going to Hollywood direction while Raimi was sticking with Harryhausen-esque effects even though there were probably more practical ways of making it all more realistic looking upon its release and potential budget. Gunn's Super was.. well if it had no action in it, it would've been great too. Or the other way around. Funny tragic lovable hateable, relateable. In both cases they were a style, and as much as I liked Spiderman 2, mostly for Alfred Molina, I just got lost in the one scene with his tentacles thinking "if he could make this film the way he wanted to, those tentacles would be going somewhere else" if you know what I mean.
So anyway I was very skeptical, but had a few beers across the street from a place that's showing it for 5 bucks and was like "fuck it." I really don't think I've been more entertained at a movie, comedic, dramatic, or otherwise. Sorry. Great movie and Pratt's fucking amazing. It's not Parks and Recreation in Space and even if it was I don't care. It's all of my favorite TV shows as a kid (and adult kid) rolled up into one, like a fruit by the foot you eat in one bite.
whoops! I didn't mean that as a reply.. oh well see the fuckin' thing! :)
