action movie lines

Just blow up a Russian/German/vaguely Middle Eastern bad guy? Don't know what to say?



I think it's a fine idea for everyone to have a reserve of snappy action film witticisms prepared in advance.

For example. If you ever have to shoot a pop star, you could say, "your next single's gonna be number one...with a bullet".

The Long Ships

I don't know if I am really ever ready to write about this yet. The Long Ships was written (but not published in 1939) by Norweigen writer Frans G. Bengtsson



He refused to publish in his own language as long as Germany occupied Norway.

Ultimately, it is one of the greatest adventure stories of all time, a classic three part Viking Epic, a modernist work that manages to tell the stories of Orm Ortesson with such a slight contemporary tough that a quick reading would leave the reader feeling that they had simply read a non-stop page turning, brilliantly written epics.



Further examination shows a subtle modern touch, commentaries on the essential lunacies of all dogma (particularly religious), biting humor, and a defiant statement on the essential freedom that the author refused to give up, in the face of Extraordinary pressure on the part of the Nazi controlled Norwegiens.

Sarah Silverman's book

was funnier, more endearing, and better written than I had expected.

Worth an hour in Borders.

oh my god oh my god

I talked to Rachel Maddow tonight. Many of you know this, because I called you or texted you. But basically, she was so awesome, we shook hands, she was great, and our waitress said she was an "amazing tipper".

incriminating photo!

plane thoughts/ plain thoughts

I'm on a plane. I can't complain.

All I can drink.

I'm reading a book called the long ships. It's a viking epic written in 1941. It's one of the most entertaining things I've read in a long time, and I really can't recommend it highly enough, particularly to Chris, and then...maybe Sterling.

It's awesome.

I have a row to myself. But I still cants sleeps.

The new Real World is just the best. Knight? C'mon for a second with how much I like that guy already!

J.S. season 2 premiers on Thursday - Wi and Anno - too much to ask for you to wait a few days to watch the first eppy with me? c u sune!!!!

Conan

Tonight, my buddy Kyle and I saw Conan live in conversation with Patton Oswalt and Andy Richter.

http://www.thesweetunfolding.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/conan_patton.jpg

it really was one of the best things I've ever seen live.

They spoke for over 3 hours.

Conan talked about the monorail episode of the Simpsons for 25 minutes.

Andy was hilarious.

Conan did a very funny Jay Leno impression.

They got really, really (charmingly) drunk. Really.
