Yet Another Moustache Post.
It's been a while since I've posted any pictures, and they always to liven up the ol' blog, don't they? People who know me will hopefully notice that I have been growing my moustache, which is finally beginning to kick in, at the tender age of 25. Even though it sounds a bit cliché, I am growing it for a movie; more specifically a 60 secund anti-smoking add, that we are doing at school. Unfortunately it will probably never achieve the Tom Selleck-esque proportions that I so badly want.
I have decided not to go to the pub and watch Arsenal tonight, but instead stay in the relative safety of my own room, and channel negative energy towards Manchester United. The sad thing is that I have so much negative energy, and if I could only find a way to harness it, surely then the Manc(er)s would never win a game again.
Untitled Fraggle Rock Project. Yes or no? I'm thinking 'no'... unless they get Tom Hanks for the part of Gobo.

I have to say that when it comes to newspapers my favorite is Politiken. Today the front page of the culture section is an article that systematically shows how episodes of Casper Christensen's new sit-com, Klovn, are ripped of from Curb Your Enthusiasm. Along with the article there's a list of some of the other times he has ripped of popular tv-shows, most blatantly Safari which was for large parts just a translated version of Reeves & Mortimer.
It's quite impressive how you can base your entire career on stealing material from other people, and at the same time maintaining a holier than thou attitude towards groups like Linie 3, because they have done the same routines for a quarter of a decade. Not that I am a fan of Linie 3 or anything.
For your viewing pleasure take a look at Mulligan and O'Hare, and then Skipper og Lille-Flemming.

Just Smile and Wave.
In a kind of sp*r of the moment thing I went and saw Madagascar yesterday, and i thought it was really funny. I don't know why I always end up liking the animationfilms that get the worst reviews (The Emperors New Groove, Hercules), but in my book it was way better than Shrek 2 and Finding Nemo. Maybe because there is precious little music, except from Ali G singing I like to Move It.
Another great thing about it is that when you come home, you can enter IMDB and join in on the discussion on whether or not the Lemur-king is a homosexual. One of the arguments for him being a homosexual is that he's a "pre madonna", which I guess means he's old enough to be Jesus' grandfather.
On a completely different note I'll just remind you all to go see Louisville play on Store Torv tonight. I think it's about 20.30.

The Best a Man Can Get.
If I was ever to direct a play or a movie about Colin Powell I think I would get James Earl Jones for the part. Maybe even Jamie Foxx, in an academy award winning part. Actually I think I could think of a million people who could play Colin Powell, who would be more suited than the very white, former christmas heartthrob, Jens Zacho-Boye. Oh the horror!
Life imitating art, part 1: "Independent movies are all about gay cowboys eating pudding".
Life imitating art, part 2: A while ago I posted a The Onion article called "Fuck everything, we're doing five blades", and now Gillette unveils their plans for "five blades and two strips". Beautiful! [via interestingstuff]
I'm going to see Red Eye tonight, don't exactly know what to expect.

Well do ya, do ya, do ya, do ya wanna....
...hear the new Franz Ferdinand single? If yes, there's a website where you can "hear" it here.
Cold Wind by The Arcade Fire is also highly recommendable, if you're into whiney canadians, and aren't we all?
I've added a link to the General on the left. Check him out.

I guess this is what is bound to happen when you forget your lucky Arsenal shirt at home. What a horrible mess that was. I actually believe that this is the first time I've started watching an Arsenal game without seeing the entire match, so I didn't even see Reyes' consolation goal.
On a more possitive note this humble weblog has now had more than 20.000 hits, which means that it now has had more hits than at the same time last year. Hurray.
Right now I'm following the Clash of the Titans; Sinister Silkeborg vs. Mighty Horsens on the interweb, and as expected it is still 0-0 after about an hour. Good old Danish football! Meanwhile Morten Duncan is the best striker in Denmark, and AGF supposedly has the most intelligent fans. The world has gone crazy I tell you.

They showed the first episode of Extras on norwegian tv yesterday, and, as I'm sure Anderz would agree, it was absolutely brilliant. Gervais' character was a bit like a very sinister Costanza, which is right up my alley. Also it's okay to steal from Costanza since Jason Alexander lost a big part of his streetcred by doing Listen Up, which in reality is a dull version of Full House.
I bought my tickets to Bruxelles yesterday, so now it's definite that I'm going there next month, and I'm looking forward to it a lot.
Some weeks ago I declared that I would wear my gold Arsenal away shirt for the next 5 games, and that the shirt would singlehandedly lead us to victory. Yesterday I then forgot to bring the shirt to my parents' place, where I am now, and lo and behold: Henry and Ljungberg miss todays game. Bollocks!
And my buddy The General has started a rather excellent blog so check it out, and check out the old slugger tonight.

Crash Boom Bang.
Sadly Crash wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Actually it was decent enough, not bad at all, but the Magnolia-light label that it has received from time to time is not entirely unjustified. The performances are all good, even the ones that you don't exactly expect Oscar material from (That's you Ryan Phillippe, Sandra Bullock and Brendan Fraser). The biggest surprise is Ludacris, who is actually very funny in it.
The story in itself is also fair enough, I just couldn't shake the feeling of having seen most of it before, and especially the ending seems to be lifted specifically from a scene in Magnolia.

All tutored out...
Now that my tutoring days are over, except for a trip downtown to watch Crash tomorrow, I have once again put my partying days behind me. I now plan to adopt a lifestyle that is borderline born-again Christian, wxcept from the right wing, religious fanaticism.
I don't really know what to expect from Crash. Apparently it has gotten great reviews, but then again the trailer looked a bit cheesy. But then again, how often do you get to see Tony Danza these days? I hope he's the boss in this one.
I haven't really been doing a lot today, so I watched the MTV Awards which was just about the biggest waste of time ever. It is however comforting to see that American MTV is apparently just as bad as the Danish version. I ended up spending a lot of time reading quotes from www.bash.org, which is both incredibly geeky, and very funny stuff. I think this one was my favorite for some reason.
If you wanna be one of the cool kids, go check out new Dansih band Veto. They are nice people.
