Television - TiVo

Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?

First off, The Breakfast Club is still a brilliant film. Though editing it for the cursing is really irritating. What's a little language between friends? Honestly FCC.

And I'm really confused why "eat my shorts" had to be edited to "eat my socks." Am I missing something? Did not Bart Simpson use the phrase often in the early 90's? Why must we edit it from a film being aired in 2008? If those episodes of The Simpsons were to air now, would they be censored, or is it a Fox vs. WGN thing? Does the FCC allow "eat my shorts" but WGN does not?

(In a sidenote, I think it's ridiculous that people are up in arms over Jane Fonda saying "cunt" on The Today Show. I mean, she was talking about the title of segment of the Vagina Monologues. And really? We're upset about cunt? I'm fairly certain that we don't censor "dick." Perhaps I'm just a flaming liberal, but I don't really see the problem, particularly since it's a title of a work of art.)

Second, I went to see The Spiderwick Chronicles and really enjoyed it. I adore Freddie Highmore (who celebrated his 16th birthday on Valentine's Day), and it was a good piece of filmmaking (especially for being a kid-oriented movie). Overall, very interesting.

That's all for now. Good times.
Baby you're a big star now

I was trying far too hard to be what I thought I should be...

So I've made the provisional (and hopefully permanent) decision not to walk at graduation. Basically, I decided by inaction...as I never went to the bookstore to order my cap and gown (though I would have made the same decision either way).

I plan to call the Registrar's Office at some point to let them know...I don't know if I have to, but I figure it's better than not doing anything.

In fun news, I just watched Center Stage, and now I'm onto Coyote Ugly. Oxygen, you rock.

[Though, as always, I get pissed off with the editing for time, content, language, nudity, to fit the screen, and commercials. I want unedited, widescreen films without breaks...but then I should just put in the DVD.]

Note: It should go without saying, but I adore Maria Bello.
