What's new?

My review of 'The Real Thing' made it into the web version of Daily Information, anyway, albeit with awful formatting (not my fault). Dunno if it's actually seen print... Tempted to send them a review of 'Josie and the Pussycats', which I went to see with the usual crowd last night. In fact, before going to bed I scribbled down a few choice phrases for just such a review on a piece of paper which I have (of course) left at home. Still, I remember one line particularly.:
"Irony was one of my favourite lenses through which to view the world. 'Josie and the Pussycats' smashed that lens, and ground the broken pieces into my eye."
I can't quite explain what was so wrong with this film (nor do I have time. Got to go to see Laurie Anderson in London in five minutes.) though it was undoubtably something to do with my somewhat depressed mood last night. Normally, though, I forget my mood while watching a film... I can't believe that it took three of things I hold dearest: irony, music and attractive women, and combined them to such traumatic effect. I left the cinema feeling like I'd grown up. It remains to be seen whether this fear is justified. I kept hearing 'Devil In Sports Casual' by Midfield General playing in my head instead of the 'Blink 182 but with chicks' film soundtrack. "You make the music go back, you hear Satan speaking."
Everyone else liked it, though.

Thank you kindly for posting that gagpipe link. I found immediate laughs. Btw, your comment about the glasses was very clever.

Noooooo
Josie and the Pussycats was fantastic. Georgeous girls, lovely music and a great silly plot. You just need to be less cynical. Just because it didn't have any subtext doesn't mean it wasn't brill :) And I warn you, I'm going to be buying the video when it comes out!
