Gome of the Week
Looks like Owen Wilson needs some money.
You gotta do the big crap flick to do the hip indie flick, that's just the way it goes. But now he's starring in a film with Eddie Murphy, after he already did one of these things with Jackie Chan.
They should just start calling these movies Colored Guy-White Guy Buddy Action Flick #__. You know, number whatever.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Anti-Puff Daddy Ranting - Someone actually hates him enough to devote a site to it. Thank god.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
One Tough Cop (1998)
Finally, Stephen Baldwin and Gina Gershon in the same movie. She is just so fucking talented. And his work in Bio-Dome, well, it speaks for itself.
Far from being a comedy, this is a good time flick revolving around the brutal assualt and murder of a nun and the bad asses that are trying to catch the killers.
And then, of course, Gina Gershon gets passed around like a joint.
She's good at that.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
MC Twist - Bad Influence (1990)
Some cats were straight outta Compton, but Twist was rollin' straight outta San Jose. Represent!
Actually not that bad of a record. He makes the mistake of trying to sound like N.W.A. and also sampling them, which is a little much, but with hit tracks like "Cocaine Bizness" and "S-M-O-K-I-N-G C-O-K-E," you really can't go wrong.
I might invite him to put a shirt on, but you know, whatever.
This Week's Hip New Slang Word or Phrase
Whiskey Tango - A way to say white trash that's kind of more on the down low.
Origin - Someone who comes into my work told me to spread it around. I will.
Usage - "Dude, that coug you were groping last night was kinda sketchy."
"Dude, totally on the Whiskey Tango tip. She had a Skynyrd tape in her car."
"Dude, that is the gnar-pow, in a very bad way."
