Gome of the Week
I read an interview with B-Real last month and he was quick to say that he has always really enjoyed the melding of rock and rap in music, and that his group had always wanted to do something like that but never had the opportunity.
I guess this is his way of legitimizing jumping on the band wagon of Bizkit. Watch for them coming to your town if you want to see a stage full of large plastic skulls and lots of guys yelling about the showing of tits. Cancel one career.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
The Oracle of Bacon - I think maybe I'm catching up on this one a little bit late, but what the hey. This page is based on the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game that was sweeping the college nation not so long ago. I am currently in awe of this phenomenon, and have been spending way too much time typing the most obscure or old names into this thing and it always works.
Everybody cut footloose.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
The Killing of Randy Webster (1985)
This week's featured film is The Killing of Randy Webster. This film marks the feature film debut of both Sean Penn and Jennifer Jason Leigh, who would both later go on to bigger and better things like Fast Times. It also features the southern lady from "Designing Women".
The Hollywood Reporter commented: "....extremely powerful scenes....taut exciting"
I'm not sure what "taut exciting" means, but if this film lacks anything, it is full frontal nudity. Just kidding, but I do think it was a TV movie that someone released on video after Penn and Leigh became more well known.
Either way, this is a movie about a kid who gets in a fight with his girlfriend, steals a van, and proceeds to get shot by a bunch of cops. After that, the Designing Women lady freaks out and tries to find out why the cops would do something like this to her deadbeat weasel of a son.
So, if you want to impress your friends by seeing a film that is no good but features some people who went on to be famous, I suggest you dig deep and scour eBay for this gem.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Rally Boy - Hooks & Crutches (2001)
It's the newest release from Portland's sportiest band, and it's been a long time coming. Sadly, it's only an ep(6 songs and a hidden track), but it rocks nonetheless. If you've ever seen these guys live, you know they put on a great show, and they're even better when they go into the studio. You can actually feel the love that's so deep it's almost obsessive on track 3, "The Check-Out". This CD's cheap and short and sweet.
