Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

Brokeback Mountain

Which one of you faggots saw it?

<heh-heh>

But seriously - it is a great film; best I've seen in ages. And I hate love stories.

Haven't seen it but I'm vaguely interested.

I want to see Syriana first, and another title that I can't recall the name of right now.

That column is much funnier if you hear Seinfeld's voice in your head when you read it. Imagine it as some dialogue between him & George.

I think Larry was just trying be funny. But even if he was serious, so what?

Larry is just a tool in general, this article aside.

I liked the movie. I went with my wife, and made sure to cuddle her tightly so as to let people know she wasn't just my fag hag. :^)

All kidding aside, I thought the film was very well done. It handled the subject matter well, and the acting was superb, considering I didn't know either of those guys could actually act.

Homophobes can just suck up and deal through the 30 seconds of buttsecks.

Yeah, that column by Larry David was really stupid. If he was sincere, he's an asshole, and if he was facetious, he was an unfunny asshole.

Larry David ROCKS! Who the fuck wants to see a movie about gay cowboys? Now, sheep shagging cowboys...I'd pay good money to see that.

Hey thinker, homophobia is as American as baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet. Hoo-ah!

Hey Star Wars Kid, when was the last time you had a date? Did you wear your Luke Skywalker outfit?

Star Wars Kid missed the memo: non-gays can make homosexuality-related jokes. Especially when using ironic deadpan to ridicule the 'homosexuality is culturally transmitted' point-of-view.

SWK, are you still a virgin? And do you still live in your mom's basement?

Hmmm... a chick flick with guys kissing.

Yeah, I'm all over that.

More importantly - will Underworld Evolution be better than the first? Or will the attention and money ruin it? (as much as anything could ruin Kate Beckinsale in leather)

ahhh... masculinity restored. :)

I just got home from it. Good movie. My girlfriend had no idea what it was about, which was good for a laugh. I also got to compare my take on the first hour or so vs. hers.

I told her the Larry David joke afterwards and she thought it was really funny.

Well, I have no idea who the guy is, but I did find the article hilarious :)

As for the movie, I think I'll give it a miss. Love stories are usually not my thing, regardless of sexual orientantion; although I like a good romantic comedy.

He co-wrote "Seinfield" amongst other things and supposedly was the inspiration for "George". The bit at the end was a reference to an episode where George and Jerry were mistaken for a gay couple.

Ah, thanks.

Seinfeld is one of those series that I find amusing, but not overly so. Actually, where humor is concerned, there is no US series that cuts it for me - there are lots of them I find funny, naturally, but nothing compares to Monty Python, Black Adder, or Coupling. Maybe it has to do with the "british superiority" discussed in another thread :D

Anyway, the text is really funny, even for those of us not familiar with the TV references.
