Historic Moments in Film - Trading Places

Adam Schleichkorn Saturday, March 29, 2008 ,
Another downright classic comedy, Trading Places starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. Two brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) who own a stock trading firm on Wall Street, decide to have their own brand of fun, and set up one established worker into a gigantic downward spiral, while replacing him with a guy off the street. Murphy and Aykroyd are flawless in this one, and I'd probably rank this in my top 10 comedies of all-time. This scene is where Eddie Murphy catches the brother's discussing their evil plan, and realizes that they screwed up this guy's life over a one dollar bet!

Top 10 - Signs you're watching way too much NCAA basketball

Biggie and Tupac Live at Madison Square Garden 1994

Adam Schleichkorn ,
You really can find anything on Youtube, and not just videos, you can even find a ton of rare music. This is one of the greatest "freestyle" tapes of all time, featuring Biggie Smalls and Tupac, both spitting some of the best verses of all-time. My friends and I used to have countless arguments about whether or not these are actually freestyles, but they are so sick either way, that who the hell cares if they are or not! Big Daddy Kane comes in and does his thing at the end, but the show is stolen by Shyheim, who was about 11 years old at the time. This kid not only gets the pressure of performing for a full house at Madison Square Garden, but he also has to follow Biggie and Tupac! Despite all that, he brings it!

so yeah, this seems like an appropriate time to post nonsense

Alex Bingham Thursday, March 27, 2008
I'm not in a good mood.

this week has turned out to be a bit of an odd one really. not sure where to start so i'll just start typing whatever comes into my head.

so this week i have had one marriage proposal, 3 girls saying they would have sex with me and a girl that works behind the bar in my local tell me she has fancied me for ages and that i have a "do-able face". this seems good enough but it isn't. this has been a confidence boost and i at least knowing of 'possible shags' for the future but i've noticed girls have fucked me about recently. even more than usual. but whatever, i haven't got time for that shit. i'm a busy guy. i've been running all over manchester showing my portfolio off to ad agencies. i'm starting to sway away from my point so i'll get back to it. Girls, in particular girls that are my 'friends' fuck me over. i'm sorry if this is all starting to sound very myspace emo but i've had a few drinks... and this column is called 'cynical Britain'...          i'll probably get my authorship revoked after this!

played a gig tonight at a local bar. was pretty good. i play guitar and my mate plays guitar and sings. it was all great until i somehow came up with the courage to play a couple of solo tracks at the end with me singing. why why why? i cant even sing. i somehow convinced myself it would be a good idea... if you missed out on the gig tonight which im sure everyone did unfortunately i will never sing again. so, sorry but my singing career is over...

not only that but to add to the shitness of the night i ripped a hole in my Barbour jacket. not happy. that jacket is my pride and joy. and i can't sew.

hmmm... not a lot more to stay

might pour myself a drink and smoke 12 cigarettes

hope everyone else is enjoying themselves considerably more than myself!

Historic Moments in Film - Coming to America

Adam Schleichkorn ,
There was a very limited selection of clips, but this scene will definitely do. Now when we're talking about some of the greatest comedies of all-time, we have to include Coming to America. Eddie Murphy is beyond stellar in this one, and Arsenio Hall even comes through with probably the only decent role he's ever had. Not only was this movie hysterical, but it had such a great story to go along with it. I also can't get enough of Eddie and Arsenio playing all the other roles, especially in the Barber Shop. "Son, I'm just going to tell you this one time. If you're going to keep working here, stay off the drugs."

0 Reviews Scifentology II

Yak Ballz Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Weathermen, the Hip-Hop collective, have garnered a large following regardless of the cloud that mainstream Hip-Hop has fallen under. As for Yak Ballz, this cat is versatile and on Scifentology II he shows he can go from one vibe to the next. Most will like Out of Range, where he is right on tone to the bluesy style beat spittin' this art, "Life is the medium, death is the canvas that I pour it on," and relaying reflective moments that make emcees better, "I wear my heart on my sleeve but never sleep on my art." For Nuclear Society he ironically kicks some catchy bubblegum lines ("trying to stay afloat like ice cream in root beer") amidst apocalyptic introspection. While on War In My Head, one of my picks, he gets even more philosophical, "Obviously in your skin I embody what you could have been." Fellow Weatherman, Cage, combines with Yak on New Communication for what I like to call a little livin' up to your name 101, as Yak pushes some uncomfortable buttons and Cage imprisons your mind. Some of Yak's lines are an ill beams of light, like on Trust Is a Timebomb, "I'm just a flash, ten seconds after your thundering." His style will grow on you if you have patience, but trust that you need to have an ear for the underground to really dig this.

Flight of the Conchords - Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros

Adam Schleichkorn ,
From the 3rd episode of HBO's Flight of the Conchords aka the best show on television. There was a debate within the network whether or not to give this show a second season, and thankfully they decided to go with it. This song, "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros" shows the incredible range and the incredible hilarity of the New Zealand duo.


Historic Moments in Film - Dumb and Dumber

Adam Schleichkorn ,
The on-screen dynamic between Harry and Lloyd is comparable to that of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca. Yea, I said it. These two captured the essence of two border-line retarded people better than anyone in the history of film, and I feel the need to point out their greatness. "I traded the van for it, straight up."

Davidson stuns Georgetown - NCAA March Madness 2008

Davidson College (10 seed) pulled off probably the biggest upset so far this tournament, beating Georgetown (2 seed) in one of the most exciting games this year. I went to a basketball camp when I was a youngin', that was headed by Davidson's coach, Bob Mckillop, and back then, they weren't even close to making the tournament. In the past 5 years though, they've been making some noise, and even appearing on tv in the regular season, which I'm definitely happy to see for Coach Mckillop. On top of that, I always have a soft spot for the underdog, and they're the true definition of that, on the court and off the court, as their school only has about 1500 students! Plus their guard Stephen Curry is a future star, and I always like seeing guys from small schools get their shot in the NBA, which I think he definitely will get.

Anyway, here's the video and description from CBS - Midwest: Georgetown will not be returning to the Final Four. With 30 points coming from guard Stephen Curry, Davidson stunned the Hoyas 74-70 in Raleigh. (NCAA March Madness 2008 highlights)...


cynical britain

Alex Bingham Monday, March 24, 2008
so yeah


i'm new here.

i guess i could be described as the foreign exchange student.

let me tell you a little about what's going on.

last month i had the privilege of visiting a good friend of mine who is staying in Brooklyn, and whilst there i met some pretty cool people. let me rephrase that. some very cool people. We went drinking, eating, drinking and more eating till all hours of the morning. We even played scrabble one night (i felt slightly cheated as it was the american scrabble and no one from england can draw 'Louisiana'... you trying drawing Manchester... whatever, we still won.) good times. one fella in particular (as were many others) was a pretty safe guy. He goes by the name of Peter Toh. I'm sure you've heard of him. He was digging the old English charm and asked me if i would be so kind as to contribute to his blog, so here i am. Invading what i can only assume is a predominantly american blog with my talk of fish and chips, cups o tea and merry old england.

so yeah. I'm thinking a weekly column appropriately named 'cynical Britain'.

watch this space.

Top 10 Scariest Movies

Dan Taft
I know my lists are a bit different than what you might list in your own top 10s. That’s ok; it’s just that I’m savvier than the average person and sometimes, oh sometimes, it takes genius to recognize genius. Don’t worry your pretty little head about it.

So here we go again- you can disagree all you want, but, as usual, I’m right. Before we begin, I am going to preface my list by stating I love “House of 1000 Corpses” and “Devil’s Rejects,” but those films are kind of tongue in cheek to me, so I didn’t include them here. I do consider them arguably the best film and sequel combo I’ve ever seen (I don’t include the Godfather movies or original Star Wars in that category as they are part of a trilogy). I also excluded “Jaws,” and “Night of The Living Dead,” both great horror films in their own right. Sorry people, but you have to make cuts when making a top 10 list.

One more little side note as well- this is a list of the top 10 scariest films of all time- not the top 10 best horror films; keep that in mind.

10. The Blair Witch Project - If you thought this was a real documentary or something, I’m sorry. Since my parents weren’t each other’s siblings, I may have had a leg up on understanding this was just a movie, like any other movie. But it was genuinely scary. I particularly loved when the film ended and everyone in the audience was mad because they didn’t git to see the witch. Grow up people.

9. The Omen - Although Gregory Peck tried his hardest to ruin this movie with his 1940’s thespian ways, it was still really cool and frightening. The scene where the nanny hangs herself off the roof at Damien’s birthday party is fucking creepy. Warning: All sequels and remakes of this film are straight garbage my friend.

8. May - I know you’ve never seen or heard of this film. That’s ok- it is a creepy little diddy that is a bit of an unknown; watch it with your girlfriend and try to deeply think about how well you really know her. Buhahahahahahahahaha.

7. Alien - I don’t think this was necessarily supposed to be a horror movie; but it scared the shit out of a whole lot of people. This film will make you jump out of your skin about 30 times; the sequels were good as well, until Alien took that script to fight predator. I mean, I know you need work Alien, but, c’mon.

6. Psycho - This might actually be the best horror film of all time. Hitchcock may be my favorite director, and this one has everything I love about him. His use of light and shadow, camerawork, timing, and audio all create some of the most genuinely frightening scenes ever filmed. Everyone has seen the shower scene about 100 times by now, but if you lived in that era, like I did, and saw that film in the theatre, like me, you would have been pretty scared, kid.

5. The Exorcist - When that little broad crab walks down the stairs, I almost pissed my nighty. Every time I stab my vagina I can’t help but think about the effect this film has had on my life.

4. The Shining - I think I once mentioned that I walked into the “Jack in the maze yelling for Danny” scene while tripping scrote; that really traumatized me. It was around the same time I watched “The Wall” on mushrooms, which was also a horrifying experience. Jack Nicholson is one of my favorite actors, and although Stephen King is a no-good dirty townie who writes like a fourth grader, The Shining is simply one of the best and scariest movies ever.

3. Inland Empire - Don’t even watch this film unless you know who David Lynch is and you absolutely love him. It barely makes sense, it’s about 3 and a half hours long, and I would watch it about 4 times in a row if I could. Lynch is the man to very few, and I am one of them. This film is a nightmare, literally, and Laura Dern put in one of the best performances I have ever witnessed. There are 2 or 3 scenes in this movie that will bother you for at least a week, because no one understands how to create a genuinely frightening scene like David Lynch. He is the master- recognize.

2. Jacob’s Ladder - Just want to mention that these top 3 films I’m listing are really the only ones with scenes that are so great and truly frightening that I am scared by them. But, then, I am tougher than most.
I don’t know if this was necessarily meant to be a horror film either, but it is a 4 star film all the way. You will be very, very disturbed by certain parts of this one. His girlfriend’s creepy ass face (yes, she has an ass for a face) when he’s in the tub with the ice, the demons following him around; this film has it all. You may not even be able to handle it, pal-o.

1. Fire Walk With Me - This film is the conclusion to Lynch’s Twin Peaks series. I’m probably the only human being on the planet that would list this as the number 1 scariest movie ever, but, fuck ya’ll. If the scene with Bob in the girl’s room doesn’t give you a nightmare, you have no soul. Make no mistake- no one understands how to scare people within this medium better than Lynch. He has perfected it. Watch the mini series, then watch the movie, then buy me dinner and tell me I am your best friend. Good.

Eliot Spitzer's Call Girl 'Goes Wild'

Girls Gone Wild released a video of Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the woman at the center of the scandal that led to former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's resignation. The company says it was shot in Miami in 2003. This footage was found after they offered her $1 Million to appear in an upcoming video. Joe Francis, Girls Gone Wild Owner, found the old footage and he immediately removed the offer from the table, and let out a weaselly laugh. Check out the story from the AP (Associated Press).
