I heard about the Scott Pilgrim movie about 2ish years ago and my response was: No... no way.  How can they even begin to capture the pure epic awesomeness of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic …

Idiocracy (2006)
Not as good as Office Space, but it's worth a watch ... if only for the de-evolution of humanity case studies. That's pretty funny. ALSO, Luke Wilson plays a guybrarian before he's cryogenically frozen. …

Hello, your name Maromatic, are you a fan of Mahoromatic the anime?
August 18, 2010
I can't say that I am familiar with Mahoromatic ... interesting. What does it mean ... in Japanese? Nope.. I just like it when things end with -omatic.
August 19, 2010
It's not for everyone, but I did write about it here http://www.lunch.com/reviews/UserReview-Maho...okes_This_show_has.html

ha ha ha ...merci. yes! music community on lunch -- watch out! :D

Just read the "About maromatic" section. Awesome. I remember using index cards like that at the library. Very clever!
August 20, 2009
ha .. thanks. :D

Brit pop, yay! Blur, Blur, Blur!! Encore!
May 13, 2009
yea! absolutely! ... okay... riddle me this one ... blur or oasis? oh no better yet, blur vs. pulp.
May 13, 2009
Ouch, that's a tough one. I saw Pulp at Wembley Arena in 1997 and they were really excellent. But then Blur was just amazing too. Both bands had great lyrics and stage presence. I like what Damon Alburn (sp?) went on to do with Gorillaz - they performed a 'live show' with the cartoon characters. Blur or Pulp? Hmmm... can't decide...
May 13, 2009
a battle between Blur and Pulp -- !!! I can't decide either! I never saw Pulp -- [I was super sick during the Different Class tour] and I've only seen Blur once when they were on tour with the Rentals. : ] Damon Albarn is gold when it comes to starting bands -- The Good, The Bad and the Queen are excellent as well.
May 13, 2009
Different class was awesome. I loved Disco 2000, E's & Whizz and all that.... Damon is a musical genius. He's actually much more talented than the vast majority of musicians out there. Even though I don't like everything in the post-Blur world, I completely appreciate the experimentation and changes in style. Ok, I'm checking out last.fm now to catch up on the sounds... :-D
May 13, 2009
I know! I never tire of Different Class - but only recently have I started liking This is Hardcore...how many years later. Disco 2000 is brilliant tho. The whole album is brilliant. Have you heard Jarvis Cocker's solo album? A.B. - Life after Blur -- there ARE good bands in our post-Blur society ...
May 13, 2009
You know, I have not checked out these bands but I will. Right now.
May 13, 2009
cheers.
