laughed more at Midnight in Paris than with it. dont know what most of these critics were thinking. i appreciate woody's foray into magical realism but the situations and the dialogue were wooden and corny. also, the richer woody and his characters get the more unrelatable theyve become.
speaking of ads on jerseys, the nba is talking it up once again. personally i hate the idea but if it has to come to pass i hope its on the back of the jerseys. hopefully the money grubbers will not want there brands fouled by slapping an ad front and center. though it would be great if fans would reject the idea through threats of boycotting purchasing of merchandise. hardly the most important thing americans could rally for, but one of the more likely that they could get exercised about.
something you will likely not see in america for quite some time, a small club in madrid, getafe, that is looking for supporters in a market that already supports two major clubs has produced a cheeky marketing campaign. in this case the cheeks do not require blush so much as a paddle. the ad itself is somewhat pornographic but the campaign didnt just tease potential converts, it actually produced a short porn movie that would make (insert reference to american athlete connected to salacious behavior) consider donning the whatever colors represent getafe. as they are playing today i can just flip the channel and... oy, neon yellow with a burger king logo on the chest.
i was never a huge fan of ny cosmos striker giorgio chinaglia but was sad to hear that he died of a heart attack today.
he was a prolific goal scorer but i didnt appreciate his style of play. i guess when you are 10yo players strike your fancy or they dont. maybe it was his self-serving "italian" demeanor but more likely he lacked the flair of the brazilians or the industry of the dutch and german players.
but i did attend his soccer academy when i was in sixth grade and somewhere have a picture he took with all the campers. that was his sole interaction with us, coptered in, sat for photos and off he went.
busy night for the dvr. game of thrones returns as does the killing on amc. i had vowed to bail on the latter of the two but will give the two hour premiere a go though one reviewer i generally like says its only a slight improvement over last year.
still vying for my attention tonight... mad men, shameless, the fox animation block and house of lies. thats 7 1/2 hours of tv which is probably more than i can find the rest of the week worth recording.
