Express Checkout: Jersey Shore, Razzies, Milestone

- Why, oh why was Jersey Shore's Snooki at The Grammys. Seriously, I didn't know she was in the music industry or had done anything of note aside from looking like an idiot and getting hit in the jaw. To paraphrase Louis C.K. from his Shameless special, every time one of these *ahem* personalities comes up, I have to stop what I am doing because I need my whole body to fucking hate that person with, because now I have to know that they exist. They are like Freddy Krueger, if you just turn your back on them, they will disappear. So for the sake of humanity, please, please, please, turn away from this trainwreck... because you and I both know that there will be another one along shortly.

- Who here is surprised that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was one of two films nominated for the most Razzies this year (the other film is Land of the Lost, by the way). And how many of you had a feeling that it have that lovely distinction around its opening weekend? I am sort of laughing now because when I wrote that post a few weeks ago about my hypothetical Razzie speech, I had no idea that a lot of the names I would mentioned would indeed be nominated this year. I am surprised Uwe Boll escaped a nomination for worst picture of the decade dishonors truth be told.

- Over the weekend, a conversation in an recent entry to this blog, the one about Jay Leno's role in the late night mess shattered my previous blog record for comments. So my criticism of Jodie Foster's take on Sin City has been quite handily usurped. The fact that it was mostly one person counter-commenting on the Jay Leno entry makes that feat even more astonishing. I don't think that conversation is going to get any longer, but you never know. These things do tend to take on a life of their own.

Snooki: I am so sick of this little female Jar-Jar that I'm ready for her 15 minutes to be up. She can go hang out with Joe the Plumber. She has nothing to good to bring to the world.

Uwe Boll: This must have been an off year for him. Maybe he slipped through the cracks like Frank Miller and his “The Spirit” movie... There is always next year for Mr. Boll!

I think it will be a banner year for Boll.
