full life

(no subject)

1. I only thought I really, really wanted the new Criterion Collection edition of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Now I am frothing at the mouth with anticipation.

2. I will be purchasing my beloved machine on Saturday; I am very, very excited indeed.

3. I thought that perhaps my recent anxiety might be tied in with meeting up with my long-lost high school friend, or that I've been drinking too much coffee. I was wrong - it's directly tied in with the impending terrorist threat. Duct tape or not, I'm fucking tired of being so goddamned paranoid. I thought I was gonna pass out on the subway this morning. I hate being afraid of living in the best city in the world.

4. Speaking of my long-lost high school friend (LLHSF), we met up last night and had a great time. It's actually hard to believe that it's been 10 years since we last hung out. We fell right back into our old groove. I'm confident that we'll be able to remain in touch this time around, too, and that's awesome.

5. Finally got Loose Fur last night; goddamn. The 2nd half of Track 2 is absolutely gorgeous, and while I generally like to stay away from hyperbole (HAHAHAHAHAHA) I'd even go as far to say that if music like that can still be made in times like these, then maybe we aren't all gonna die.

Tenacious D, the self-proclaimed "greatest band on Earth," is headed to the big screen thanks to a deal with New Line Cinema, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Actor/comedian/rockers Jack Black and Kyle Gass, the duo that makes up "the D", will star in the film, to be directed by music video helmer Liam Lynch. Black, Gass and Lynch will also write the script, with Black and Gass producing as well. The studio is in negotiations with Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films to produce.

The specific story line of the Tenacious D film is being kept under wraps, but it is said to be a "creation" story revolving around how the duo became the greatest band on Earth.
