late in the evening and all the music's seeping through  
Is there anything better than coming home and throwing yourself on the couch with a latte and an enormous chocolate mousse cake and discovering that Anaconda has turned up for free via On Demand cable? Dude. The film begins by letting us know that "Tales of monstrous, man-eating Anacondas have been recounted for centuries by tribespeople of the Amazon..." Heh. BE AFRAID, PRETTY PEOPLE! YOU WERE NOT SIGNED FOR THE SEQUEL! Actually, I like the sequel even better. The prettiness factor goes even higher. Johnny Messner! Karl Yune! (They have a special relationship because of how they live on a boat together and hang out in bars.) And there's a cute monkey! And an anaconda orgy ball! This first movie has J.Lo's pert ass. Oh, and hey, Owen Wilson's nose. I always forget about it. Him. Jon Voight's performance is, of course, cheesetastic. How can IMDb give this a 4.1? That's just wrong.

The delicious frosting on the cake of my day (turning out not so bad) is this thread. Rodneysaur: *tips over onto the keys* Gnaaarn. *is killed dead* I swear, it makes me want to fall on the floor and let my little kicking puppy spasms of heeeee turn me in a circle. Which is strangely apt, because I forgot until today about the way Prozac makes me jiggle my legs madly. *eye roll*

Oh, and I made icons today. Rothko and Kandinsky, a bit of a stylistic switch from the Too Much Coffee Man (Rodney!) ones I've been using for a few days now.

Also, I *did* do some work today. Between making icons. So, yay.


J.Lo: "What are those, fireflies?"
Eric Stolz: "Mm hmm. It's pretty, huh?"
J.Lo: "Hmm."
Eric Stolz: "Family lampyradae--on certain nights they'll gather in the same tree and use their light flashes to announce their readiness to mate."
J.Lo: "Well, who flashes, the males or the females?"
Eric Stolz: "Both, actually. The females with a series of short, dainty feminine little flashes, about eight per second. The males respond with a series of long, drawn-out manly flashes..."


ETA: Also, tzikeh pointed out this video PSA about coming to terms with one's sexuality. *nods earnestly* Men kissing! ...kinda hotly too.

I like when they're doing the "celebrate the cheerleaders" dance that turns into the "celebrate pride by grinding against each other to disco" dance. Men grabbing and deepmouth kissing each other should be marked by some kind of national day.

*nods* And then, instead of getting Ben Hur and the Ten Commandments on the same week-end every year, we'd get dancing and kissing men. And well, dancing and kissing women, because it would be all about equality.

I like the kiss at the end, too; it's such an established relationship kiss.

One of the funniest things I ever saw online, on a NYC bulletin board, was the transcript of an overheard conversation about Anaconda on a city bus. One woman is saying she saw it over the weekend (in the theater), and she bitched mightily that the title didn't tell you enough. "What does Anaconda mean? I didn't know! They should call it A Giant Fucking Snake Is Eating People!" The friend says, "Would you have gone to see it?" "Hell no!"
Anna S.: hedgehogeliade on February 16th, 2006 05:27 am (UTC)
The sequel has a subtitle--it's actually "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid." So I think you could easily shoehorn one onto the first. "Anaconda: A Giant Fucking Snack Is Eating People!" *g* It works pretty well.

Ahahahahahah, I'm now imagining Doritos chasing tiny people, stomping them and eating them! *giggles* So sorry. *is tired and should go to bed*

Is Anaconda the one with Rodney?
Anna S.eliade on February 16th, 2006 05:35 am (UTC)
Oh my god I can't believe I wrote SNACK. WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH ME? Okay, possibly funny, but I weep for the widening gap between my brain and my fingers.

Doritos. Mm. Damn. I wish you hadn't said that.

The movie with Hewlett you're thinking of is "Boa Vs. Python" which I also have a silly fondness for. *g*
Caminando, desaparezco: SG bite - Imargueritem on February 16th, 2006 05:42 am (UTC)
Boas, Pythons, Anacondas... They're all snakes.

And speaking of stomping, I'm now imagining a snake hitting preys with its tale.

It makes a tiny fist with the end of his body and hits the dirt demanding food from its mommy. "Foood, mommy, fooood! I want a hamster!" "You're too fat; you're eating a mouse!"

The gap between my fingers and brain is wide indeed. And it *is* funny! Doritos! avancing menacingly through the streets ot New York! And little people running and scream! And the smart suicidal ones throwing themselves at the enemy and taken a bite out of them! And the Doritos going, "Nooooo, a fallen comrade! Must avenge! Must stomp!"

I'm possibly insane.

Or just sleep deprived.

I've also switched medication. O.o o.O

Oh my god I love your little chocolate animals! Mice? *squints*

I've also switched medication. O.o o.O

Come sit over here with me on the comfy couch, by the fire and the kittens. *leans*
Caminando, desaparezcomargueritem on February 18th, 2006 02:15 am (UTC)
They are! *cuddles her mice chocolate* I just want to eat them up! And they're an SG team! With the leader at the front. :)

*drags her brand sheep!stuffed toy and blanket; sits on the comfy couch by the fire and the kittens* *leans* Are we watching something? Stargate?

You know, they tell you about the side effects of these things, but thye don't tell you about their *effects*. Like, my mind is totally not working. Or missworking. Or something. *pokes brain* Like I'm Daniel in Crystal Skull. Sooooo not there. And yet there.

*digs out butter bonbons from her pocket* Want one? *hands over one*

*dies* That is fantastic. Seriously, I am still giggling. *loves*

It was even more drawn out than that, and the whole exchange as reported was hilarious. But I seriously cannot think of Anaconda without that alternate title popping into my head.

(And coincidentally, I just read an interview with Samuel L. Jackson about his new movie Snakes on the Plane that was equally hilarious -- he insisted they retitle the movie to the above, though the studio was going to call it something like "Pacific Flight 302." He said no! People want to hear about snakes on a plane!

"What do we do?"

"I don't know. I'm new. I'm a new gay."


Thanks for passing along the link.

*snerk* I love the exchange where they try to decide if they're gay or not.

Excellent post, thanks for the link. The kiss at the end was the cherry on the cake. :D
