I don't know why. Just do. Really love this stuff called "Good Earth". Anyone out there have any great recommendations? I like tea that has a good, strong flavor to it. A little sweet (without having to add sugar), a little spicy, and a little bit delicious as it goes from the mug to the lips to the throat to the belly. Yum. Tea!
The screening last night went well enough. People seemed to laugh at all the right points during the film. Which of course was the whole damn thing! Although, to be honest, it's not too hard to make the crowd at the "48 Hour Film Project" laugh. Most people that are there want three things: they want to see the film they made, they want to make sure that the film they made is better than the films everyone else made, and they want to be marginally entertained. In that respect, having a goofy little movie that's well-enough put together puts you in a pretty good position. Even if it's not as funny as, say, MadTV (and what is? am I right?), the place is packed with enough drunks and idiots to make even the lamest gag seem like the funniest thing you've ever seen since that little girl on America's Funniest Home Videos put her hand on the shaky radiator and sang the Star-Spangled Banner in a warbly voice. Oh, the laughs!
This atmosphere, of course, works against earnestness, shoddy camerawork, poorly delivered lines, fat people, or admissions of love. Everything is served up as something to laugh at, and rightly so. Laugh away, you fools. The world burns around you, and you laugh! You crazy, magnificent bastards you all!!
Here's a question for you: which "religion" is crazier? Scientology or Mormonism? How can people believe this shit? Really. I want to know.
Well, moving on.
Here's something that I think would be funny to see:
Imagine there is a mother elephant and her little baby elephant running around on the African Serenghetti. Only, the little baby elephant is wearing old Adidas shoes, gold chains, some sun glasses, and a Vision Street Wear cap, cocked to the side. Oh, and he's holding a skateboard in his snout.
That's something that I think would be funny to see.
