MMAM - Vol. 27

A few short years ago when the Judd Apatow group of comedians made it big at cinemas - as in a new movies of theirs came out every other week - the one I was most looking forward to was FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. Truth be told, it was primarily because of Kristen Bell and how gorgeous she is, and to a extent Mila Kunis, but lo and behold, SARAH MARSHALL was a hilarious, awesome film that even spawned a pretty damn good spin-off GET HIM TO THE GREEK [review here]. Hot women aside, the real highlight of the film was Aldous Snow, played by Russel Brand. He's the very epitome of a stereotypical rockstar who just doesn't give a shit about what he says. A more out-there Steve Stifler, I guess you could call him. So with the presence of Aldous, we also get some brilliant original songs (continued in GREEK). Maybe in other editions I'll post 'em (I don't want to repeat myself just yet, maybe at number 50), but for now, let's get Aldous' message across, cos we gotta do somethin'!

I'm inspired.

Snow's songs are good, but they kinda remind me of the Flight of the Conchords songs, which then makes me sad.

Don't hate me here, Fletch, but I never watched CONCHORDS, so you're gonna have to explain that one...

No hate, but you missed out! Twas a great show with some fantastic songs...watch this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RC0DdrHbGg)...and then watch a bunch of their others. You won't be disappointed.

Ha! That was actually pretty good. First season added to my Netflix Que. Too bad it's not Instant Steaming, cos that would be perfect for OMENS...

You don't have HBO, do you? They might still run old ones on there.

Otherwise, yeah, that sucks about no Streaming. But at least you'll tear through them quickly. Not too many eps per season, and only 1/2 hour shows.

Actually, thanks to the sheer awesomeness of college campus, I HAVE HBO FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!!!

And let me tell ya, sorta big let down. I was expectin' awesome flicks playin' 24/7 and some really uber cool content, TRUE BLOOD-aside, but it's pretty much been older titles and THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL over and over and over and over again.

I'll keep a eye out, but the channel seems more interested in wrestling and Bill Maher than dramatized original content. But they're only half hour shows? Niiicceee.
