The Monday Corner 10/25/2010


Define sexy in 5 words or less.

Uni, Uni, Uni, Uni, Uni, Univarn! But Uni that's six words! Ah, but you're forgetting Uni is an infinite awesomeness continuum word. Therefore it redefines language to meet the needs of its master (me) in any given sentence.

For example: "I love chocolate chip cookies" is the exact same as "Uni Uni Uni Uni Uni Uni Uni Uni Uni Uni" or any number of Uni's, including only a single Uni up to an infinite number of Uni's. Now that you have been educated you may continue on with your love for The Monday Corner.

For your Consideration:
Links in the city. Links in the hills. Links all around giving my thrills.

The Dark of the Matinee has put The Breakfast Club to the test challenging Vanessa of The Movie Ness to watch the film for the first time and see how it has aged.

Big Thoughts From a Small Mind tackles the practicality and usefulness of the MPAA rating, NC-17, and whether or not it is completely without bias towards larger studios.

Mike from You Talking to Me? is concerned about the director Criterion is going with their impending releases, fearing they are leaving too many unreleased films out their in limbo.

In honor of the impending Halloween Kai from The List cranks out his top 15 Horror baddies - unfortunately Dr. Phil failed to make the list (so close!)

Red from Anomalous Material follows up his early Oscar Predictions, taking pulse of the current Hollywood beet, presenting a new, revised, breakdown of the major categories.

Slapstick comes, you don't. I feel ashamed.

2. 3 votes: Smile and Giggle
3. 2 votes: Overwhelmingly Bored

New Poll: OK ladies and gents, here's the big one. I've laid out the groups. You make the debate. Which classic horror villain group is the absolute scariest? And GO!

Music Theme of the Week:
Because Ennio Morricone + Horror obviously = awesome!

Thanks for the linkage amigo, and good on ya for highlighting Mike's post - I was rather amused that he was concerned that the whole sanctum of Criterion was going too commercial.

Carpenter always has the best music in his movies.
And sexy in five words or less? My wife. Too short? My wife naked.

Ennio Morricone = THE MAN. Never met a soundtrack by him I didn't like. Oh sorry, lemmee translate: uni uni uni uni uni uni uni uni. My accent is a little rusty.

Simon said...

Ennio Morricone is the shit.

Now, Uni, by just mentioning the infinite continuum that is your sexy-name statis, you've doomed us to paradox. Thanks a heap.

CS said...

Thanks for the linkage, Uni!

Love the Morricone score as well. Makes me want to rewatch the film again. It has been years since I last saw it.

@Mad It's among the two things bloggers do best - hype and worry.

@AlexJ I would say evidence is necessary, but I think we'll let it slide this time. Some things may be a bit too personal.

@Sugary What I love about him is that there's no imitation of him. He's one of a kind in style.

@Simon Can't be quite as a bad as the Pinocchio paradox, can it?

@CS It's my favorite horror film, always gets a viewing this time of the year.

Simon said...

I don't think I've ever heard of that one.
