You Always Hurt The Ones You Love

Staged or not, this is pretty damn entertaining and addictive. But I will say this, they editors of the show make it appear that Shannon left Gene, stayed with her sister Tracy, and then goes back to Gene to reunite. And then after that, Shannon and Gene are back in the Therapist office willing to work on the things that need to be worked on to go forward. The problem is, they are using the same footage from the previous time the two of them were in the office. You know, the one where she gets fed up with his ways and walks out of the meeting and then him all together. So yeah, the bulk of it is scripted IMO.

Anyway, somewhere during the middle of Episode 1 I got to thinking how they would end the show and it's a no brainer if you ask me. What's the one thing that everyone thinks Gene would never do? Yep. Get married. Mark my words, that's how they will end the series with Gene and Shannon finally tying the knot.

Added Episode 3: You Always Hurt The Ones You Love

I'll probably pass on this one. Not a fan of her stand-up and I find her for the most part irritating.

Well, that's how I was coming into the book myself. So I was pleasantly surprised to find her book pretty engaging and funny.

AC/DC (Who Made Who) 1986

Who Made Who is NOT a Greatest Hits set. It's the soundtrack to Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive. It's more of a compilation by Mr. King, a known AC/DC fan. who chose the songs that he felt suited the scenes best. Since it's not a GH set, I can't even go down the road of slamming it due to omissions of certain songs. And since I love every song that's on it, it gets the rating it does.

The biggest draw for me picking this up were the 3 new songs made specifically for this album. Those songs being the title track Who Made Who and the 2 instrumentals D.T. and Chase The Ace. The title track to me is the most "pop-centric" song that AC/DC has ever done and I am not ashamed to admit that I love it. D.T. and Chase The Ace are really cool songs. I never would have expected the band to do full on instrumentals and the end results don't suck either.

The rest of the album is comprised of one Bon Scott era song: Ride On. The remaining songs are from the Brian Johnson era. Mr. King was smart enough to include You Shook Me All Night Long. If he doesn't add that song, we never would have gotten the new video to go along with it.

Corinne Russell.  Gawd I loved this chick when the video first came out. Um, me love her long time.  Reminds me that I never added the video to the Hottest Music Videos Of All Time Thread. Must correct that little oversight right now.

Fave Songs (of the 3 new ones): Who Made Who, D.T. and Chase The Ace

Album cover is cool. But I gotta point out that Cliff Williams, the never-heard, never-seen band member of AC/DC is not doing himself any favors by covering up his face on the back cover with a face full of hair.  ;D

I will post the official video for Who Made Who when I can find it. Till then, just enjoy the song.  :)

AC/DC (Fly On The Wall) 1985


VHS Long-form Video Cover

Fly On The Wall did what Flick Of The Switch couldn't. It produced a handful of anthems that I still enjoy playing on a regular basis. This isn't a perfect record by any stretch, but it is definitely a good album full of classic AC/DC rockers. With Phil Rudd now out of the band, FOTW is the first album to feature Simon Wright on Drums and he does a fantastic job.

I think why I really liked the album, more so than I should is that the band released a Long-form video on VHS for 5 of the songs with a "narrative storyline" running throughout each individual video. The "plot" of the storyline is the photographer trying to take pictures of the band. You can see the videos down below, in order. I gotta point out that one of the best scenes ever in any music video, be it AC/DC or any other band occurs at the end of the Shake Your Foundation. In my best Jack Black impersonation: "The band Rocks so fuuuucking hard, it brings the building down to the ground". When the camera cranes up from the rubble to reveal AC/DC playing in front of the New York skyline, I was like FUUUUCK YEAH!!!! Chills. But now, that image takes on a completely different meaning with the Twin Towers in the background.

Fave Songs: Danger, Sink The Pink, Playing With Girls and Shake Your Foundation. Co-MVP goes to Foundation and Danger.

I've always liked the Album Cover, front and back. Sucks to be Cliff Williams, the bass player. He is like the one guy that is never heard or seen within the band and he has been in the band for pretty much the entire run of AC/DC. And he still doesn't get any respect...even on the back cover with the stupid f*cking green sticker over his face. Haha.

The Other Guys (2010)


This is a really stupid movie. I mean it's so stupid that you become stupid as you're watching it. I feel a little stupid after the fact. But here's the thing, even with this stupid movie, riddled with cliche after cliche of all the Cop and Action Adventure movies you have seen over the years, something end up liking the movie and the characters. At least I did. I went into this with low expectations because Will Ferrel has not been able to "bring it" in a long time. Well, I was wrong. This has got a lot of funny moments that even the most jaded will not be able to keep from laughing. There are plenty.

I still think it was a stupid movie. But funny never the less. Go figure.

I recommend this one as a Rental.
