movies

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

So we watched Napoleon Dynamite last night for the first time in a number of years (showing it to VH, Jr. for the first time). It's really not a good movie.
As a former Mormon, I can't tell you how cringe worthy that movie is to me, especially when I first saw it. I had met so many missionaries from Utah and Idaho and wondered why they were so...different. After watching this movie, it made sense. Despite all that, I enjoy the movie, mostly for the guy in the glasses.

Interesting! I had never even considered that aspect of it.
Got a Rake? Sure!

I dated a Mormon once. Her parents openly loathed me.

Is that a strike for or against Mormonism? Asking for a friend.

Napoleon Dynamite is great. It's one of those movies that's not funny when you watch it, but describing the scenes after the fact is hilarious. There's some racial stuff that's not so good though.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Well, they hated me because I wasn't Mormon, so maybe it was good intentions but for the wrong reasons.

When I was an undergrad, my summer job back in my hometown was working at a tourist booth—a trailer, actually—handing out maps and shit and giving directions. Dumb job, but I got to read and listen to music most of the time. A few times, I got missionaries come in for directions. I always assumed were Mormons but they might have been JWs or Millerites for all I know. Anyway, during one of the visits, it was two young guys, and the one stared at my Discman like it was forged from hell. No exaggeration—he hated that thing and all it represented. I also masturbate with it, I wanted to say.

Well, I turned into a Mormon
Whoa oh oh

Whoa oh oh
Times I never hardly sleep at night
Whoa oh oh
Well, I turned into a Mormon today

I hope it was a wonky one. Otherwise, those things don't vibrate much. I get it, back in the day options were limited.
