I discovered last night that my list of people who I could conceivably call at random in the wee hours of the morning is down to zero. Does this mean I'm growing up or that the last of my bohemians are gone? Either way, it's sad.
So I watched Tapeheads and loved it again. I always forget inbetween viewings of that movie *why* it is so good.

John Cusack and Tim Robbins making music videos. A few cameos, very goofy, very very 80s, but just damned good. Don Cornelius is in it, fer chrissakes. How can you not love that? (And on the opening credits it proclaims "Micheal Nesmith Presents" (he's the executive producer, a lot of the commercial bits in this have a very "Elephant Parts" kinda vibe) and he has a tiny non speaking cameo in the movie)
Connie Stevens, Ted Nugent, Bob McLean, Lyle Alzado, Martha Quin, Bobcat Goldthwait... and get this.. Jello Biafra as an FBI agent.
Musical score by Fishbone, and they make a cameo too.

If you haven't seen this movie, you should. If you did see this movie and you didn't like it, I don't like you.

On a completely different note, I don't really watch tv much. But everytime I've turned on the tv in the last week I've been confronted with at *least* one austin powers movie spot or tie in commercial. Everytime Aim starts I get *2* pop up screens all about austin powers (yes, I know, it's their movie... hush it) and any sites that are more... established company sites have got something about it too.

Give it a few weeks and all the fucking austin powers icons will start appearing on LJ.
Sorry.
Even if it's really gaddamned funny (which I don't think it is)... I hate this movie.

1. I might've been high on industrial-strength cleaning products, but I seem to remember you calling me about 1.30 in the morning.

2. Apparently, I really really need to see Tapeheads, a film that somehow has never been in my proximity and my consciousness at the same time. It's kind of a Batman/Bruce Wayne thing - you never see them together.

3. Re: the AIM popups, you know you can turn those off, right? In your prefs? The AIM Today screen, the ticker, all of it.

4. I too dread the inevitable onslaught of Austin Powers LJ userpics, and I fear that once again I will spend my halloween punching people instead of... er... ok, so that's what I do every halloween, but this time I'll be punching them in the cravat.

1. I did. But it was a friday night, so it was okay. I couldn't do that during the week.
2. Yes. You do.
3. Yes. I know. I just always forget. I will do it now that I'm thinking about it.
4. Do you ever *stop* punching people?

Unless we're talking tissues to wipe up the spraying laugh sputum... none.

I'm trying to figure out what the implication here is... that must only enjoy soppy girl movies or that YOU only enjoy soppy girl movies.
