Archives For Fun

Ever since I listened to Esteman’s feature length debut, I’ve been loving the album. I know I haven’t actually built my Top10 albums this past 2012 (I’m unsure I have enough quality to make a Top10) but 1er Acto is definitely included in this.

Allen, Keaton y Johansson, Presley, Minelli, Sinatra, Cotillard et Piaf, Funes, Bardot, Gaga, Madonna, Davis, Andersson, Lauren, Newman y Travolta, Taylor, Mercury, Coppola, Almodovar, Cruz, Leguizamo, Winehouse, Lennon, Jackson y Monroe.

Though, his track with Andrea Echeverri, Aqui Estoy Yo, made it to my Top10 tracks of last year.

In all honesty, I had a lot of Spice Girls fun when it happened, but the best part of the whole thing will ALWAYS be this animated GIF. Thank you forever and always, Lainey.

The commercials for Nintendo featuring Penelope Cruz and her sister work great. They still make me laugh. This one is still my favorite though;

Though, the other one with Mario Bros still has its charm. It’s also great to see that both versions in Spanish or English are difficult to pin-point which one was the original language. It doesn’t look like it’s been dubbed… or maybe it was shot twice, but it’s hard to tell if both version are slightly different.

I was watching Erik Lamens’ SM-rechter (SM Judge) because… well, because I couldn’t resist the synopsis of a judge being wrongly accused of abusing his wife when they were only into SM. It’s all a true story to boot!

All throughout the film, I kept thinking Veerle Dobbelaere looked a lot like Famke Janssen had a lovechild with Andie MacDowell — with a dash of Noomi Rapace. I’m still uncertain why I thought of Noomi, but the Famke and MacDowell connections are there at plain view.

I think the Noomi bit could have been due to Dobbelaere’s final outburst. But I could totally see Famke Janssen doing this role, if there ever — heaven forbids!! — were a Hollywood version of it.

Brown Eyed Girls has been very busy this week promoting their upcoming Xmas +19 shows in Seoul. Besides doing SNL Korea, they’ve been doing all sorts of interviews. In the latest one on Guerilla Date, they talked different things like what would Ga-In erase of her past, who’d be the one to get married first…. and they talk about their ideal type (??), which JeA says Josh Hartnett with the following message:

jea-brown-eyed-girls-guerilla-date

… which, of course, it’s hilarious.

I honestly think she did say “I will meet you” (with a really pronounced ‘t’ by the end of ‘meet’). I’m not sure where the “to” in the caption comes from… if it’s either a regular typo happening in Asian varieties, or if it is indeed part of the joke that she said “meet to.”
