Quick Hits


Death Set To Join Depp In New Movie - Death, aka Amber Heard is going to play opposite Johnny Depp in the movie Rum Diary. This is a movie I have been looking forward to for a long time. Put Johnny Depp in a Hunter Thompson project and you know he is going to give it his all. Amber on the other hand seems to be getting these bigger roles thanks in large part to her lucky break in Pineapple Express. I say lucky because she only got the role because Olivia "I'm too good for CDAN" Thirlby got fired from the movie. Johnny is also in talks to be in a Three Stooges movie which would be priceless.

Meu hovercraft está cheio de enguias - Whoever briefed Tom Cruise on the do's and don'ts of Brazil obviously forgot to tell him what the language of Brazil is. According to the NY Post, Tom went to a press conference in Brazil and started speaking to the reporters present in Spanish and not in Portuguese. When Tom found out I'm sure someone got punished somewhere or had to donate their entire paycheck to Scientology or something.

If Only He Had A Transporter - The picture above is grainy, but yes, it is a man robbing a convenience store in Denver with a Klingon sword. When police arrested him they found the man logged on to Priceline while wearing Spock ears and doing obscene things to a picture of Lt. Ohura.

What kind of sickie would do obscene things to a picture of Lt. Ohura?

I find this so funny because I live in Denver and saw this on the local news.I never thought it would be on my beloved CDAN.

Enty, you made my day with the Uhura joke. (don't knock it till you try it)

But was he eating kreplach?

Elizabeth said...

você gosta de vir para trás ao meu bouncy bouncy do lugar?

(I have no idea how that will translate, but I couldn't let the MP allusion go without response!)

:-D

Heh, amster - I'm your neighbor down in the Springs - I live about a block from the first robbed store. I was wondering about the Bird of Prey uncloaking in my backyard, but it's a weird part of town...

DNfromMN said...

I'm not getting the Death/Amber Heard thing.

I'm more shocked that Tom Cruise can speak Spanish than that he got the language wrong.

Enty - *O*hura? for shame. You know there's enough of us nerds on here to rip you a new one.

lutefisk said...

Gladys--RESPECT the kreplach--no dissing allowed!!

Himmmm said...

I wonder if Tom Cruise got a "Brazilian" while he was "down there".
Take that any way it hits you.
Wow...just the mere thought is plain wrong on soooo many levels.

Maybe he's secretly down there working on "Blame It On Rio 2", with Demi Moore returning 25 years later and taking over the Michael Caine role, and cougarizing the teen son of...Tom Cruise?

Shit...CALL MY AGENT!
CALL BOB KOSBERG!
I GOT A PITCH, MAN!!

Klingons don't use swords, they use a bat'leth. Moreover, this robber is not holding a bat'leth, it's a "Valdris".

There. Now you know all you need to know about me. And it's Uhura, not "Ohura" :)

Christine said...

Obrigado, Enty!

BTW, for all the non-Portuguese speakers, I think Elizabeth said, "Do you like to come from behind my bouncy bouncy place?"

yellow said...

What I really would like to know is why is the hovercraft is full of eels...

Marisa said...

Rum Diary Movie? Cool.

Rum Diary Movie w/ Depp? AWESOME!

Elizabeth said...

My nipples JUST exploded. With delight. :-D

Majik said...

Elizabeth, you beat me to it. That is one of my favourite sketches--along with the Cheese Shop, The Dead Parrot and The Argument.

Enty, if you weren't so fat and old, I'd do ya cuz you keep slipping in the obscure references that I actually get.

Fuck it....sense of humour and good musical taste trump fat and old...how 'bout a little sumpin' sumpin'?

Christine said...

I live in Denver and did NOT see this! Thank you Enty, thank you! What a delight. Clive Owen in velvet and someone robbing someone else with a klingon sword in my very own city. Does it get any better? No. No it does not. Unless Clooney wore velvet. And I got to touch it. If you take my meaning.

Miss X said...

Wow, lots of people from Denver or just CO. I left Denver less than 2 years ago and still miss it. :(

Oh, and I knew Brazil's language is Portuguese. Do I get to be proud of myself for this?

The innocent beauty of old druggies angle with the Rum Diary story-written in 1960 finally published in late 90's. I heard that when the suits wanted Hunter S. Thompson to take a look at the 1960 draft and improve on it for publication he could remember VERY LITTLE from those days to change anything! So happy Johnny D.jumped(street) on it.

cibele said...

Speaking spanish in Brazil a big NO NO. People get very annoyed when people talk spanish here. But anyway, i think people in Rio liked Tom Cruise, they met him at the beach and he was nice to them. Who knew...

Amanda said...

Please drop your panties, I cannot wait till lunchtime!

Ha, thought that was a hungarian phrasebook reference. Nice one Enty. x
