Don’t get too excited


“What were you doing when the War broke out, Stoaty?”
“I was reading about some pretentious publicity stunt of an advertisement of a movie, child. Now shut up and eat your Alpo.”

This just came across the transom. It’s a film financed by Remy Martin. When their current batch of cognac is ready for sale, this movie will be released. That’s in a century, that is.

They dropped a few francs on it, too — it was written by and stars John Malkovich (who wasn’t told when he signed on that it wouldn’t be released in any current person’s lifetime).

There’s a little teeny part of me that thinks this is cool. I think it’s an indigestible fragment of leftover art school. I’m hoping the more grounded parts of my brain gang up on it and beat it to death.

First comment wins: “meh, it’ll be on Pirate Bay sooner.”

I sure hope John M. got a lump sum instead of a percentage of the gross.

John Malkovich is a hardcore conservative. I worship him.

Plus, he directed one of my favorite movies: The Dancer Upstairs.

Neither the Islamic Caliphate or the Glorious People’s Democratic Republic of Gaia will allow the haram bourgeoisie cognac or the doubleplus ungood capitalist running dog movie promoting Kufir ideology and oppresses the masses.

Just to show willing I’d give it a try (and I don’t even like Remy all that much – I’m a Hine or a Hennessy kinda mustelid).

That’s just how generous spirited badgers can be.

In a hundred years, no one will have the required antique machine to play the movie. Not one that works anyway.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
