I hate that Killer Mike mentioned a blood pressure regulator like it's something he has to deal with. I hope he is ok.
I hate the John Waters was in the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie.
David Cross was in the original too. Like, Patton Oswalt gives himself shit for being a voice in Ratatouille, but you know what? That was actually a good movie. If I already had a successful acting/comedy career, and.. let's just say I was offered 1 million dollars exactly to be in Alvin and the Chipmunks, I'd decline. Fuck, I'd decline if they asked me now, and frankly I could use a million dollars.
What's strange is there's no imdb record of John Waters being in the new A&TC movie, or any of them. That seems like a weird thing to make up.
I don't know if he was in the Alvin & The Chipmunks movie, but he does like jerking off to Alvin & The Chipmunks porn. That may have been what Ashtar was thinking about.
Patton Oswalt gives himself shit for Ratatouille, but not for Blade III?
CN it's not really shit, but he mentions how all his kids' friends love the movie, and talks about how kids come to his house dressed up like the rat he did the voice for on Halloween, things like that, juxtaposed with the Patton we're used to. It's more just an observation that the same voice that kids are in love with is also the one that said "If you hit a midget on the head with a stick, he turns into 40 gold coins."
He's not apologized for Blade III, but doesn't really have to. 'Edgy' comics can do bit parts in shit films, no problem. It's the family friendly stuff that forces them to clean up their act or alienate their new, much bigger and more lucrative audiences.
There's a great interview with the AV Club where he talks about how the crew was united against Wesley Snipes being nuts, to the point where he insisted on being called Blade off-camera and tried to strangle the director, leading the director to hire a real motorcycle gang to pretend to be his security.
I haven't seen it, but I'm assuming he wasn't one of the main characters; if I know hollywood he's probably some computer guy whose brains come in handy in tight spots where Blade's supreme vampire hunting skills cannot.. something like that. He was also in The King of Queens, but it's not really his job to apologize for that either. He should however apologize for Big Fan, which SHOULD have been a good movie, but fell flat on its face.
From what I remember, he showed Blade his newest vampire-killing weapons, played basketball, and then died.
Somebody has to apologize for Blade III, and Oswalt seems like the only person involved who would be willing to.
Yeah, it was such a let down after the masterpieces that were Blade I and II.
Hey, Blade was a fine late-90's action movie, and Blade II was a good enough film for a sequel. They still set a standard that Blade III didn't even try to meet!
Also, I just remembered that it's called Blade: Trinity, not Blade III.
I wanted to talk about Killer Mike but apparently everyone here is a big fan of Blade.

It's too bad that "Ding Dong" still gets a few laughs, when it's basically the same thing as "Jim Crow" or "Jiggaboo," etc. The plight of the Chinese American may often go less noticed than that of the blacks, but it's still super offensive.
Oh yeah.. my bad. Now I have this image of a Candygram guy ringing the doorbell, all dressed up in white with a black bowtie and a cute little milkman hat with a box of chocolates, that just yells some racial slur when you open the door and walks on to the next house.
My man-crush on John Waters continues unabated. I don't know how such an intentionally creepy dude manages to be so awesome, but he does manage somehow.
I don't really get a creepy vibe at all; he just looks like a lot of people you might find at bars or running vintage clothing shops or record stores. And yeah, Pink Flamingos was pretty fucked up and creepy for the time, but most of his other stuff was either squeaky clean (Hairspray) or just hilariously violent (Serial Mom.) True story a friend of mine was running some charity event in Baltimore and met John Waters in the elevator and she was the only person he talked to all night, despite the fact that there were all these famous people you're supposed to rub shoulders with. I guess he spent a good hour just talking about old video games.
Yeah, fair enough. Waters himself talks up his "creepiness", but his creepiness was that of a previous generation's, where simply being openly gay was enough to be considered "creepy".
In any case, creepy or not, he always comes across as a good guy when he talks. I really like what I've seen of him.
No, he's definitely creepy. Even back in the olden days, there were non-creepy gays, and there were creepy gays, and John Waters is the creepiest of all the creeps.
He's also very nice, but then again, why wouldn't he be? Just because you're a creep doesn't mean you can't be a nice person.
I never got that vibe. My old boss was definitely the creepy kind, basically to imagine a straight opposite, you'd have a guy who just captain cavemans a girl at a bar and fucks her while watching mixed martial arts and listening to Nickelback. He was creepy, especially after a few drinks, and would hit on all of us employees and not in a fun or flattering way. Basically, a gay douche.

White conservatives love to point to wealthy non-white athletes as proof racism no longer exists in America. Because, you know, this black guy made a lot of money playing football, therefore this black kid shot to death by cops must have done something to deserve it because many cops enjoy football and therefore can't be racist.
They also hate to be contradicted, especially by uppity black folks.
If a statistically significant number of low class, white republican voters stop hating black people they might start to realize what the Republican power base's actual agenda was and do something about it.
