back to the league as Roberto Hernandez. These story notes ruin movies on AMC. Why would I need or have any desire for a six minute countdown clock for Truman (how fratty is he!) finding out he's being watched? Where I come from those are called spoiler alerts. Does anybody give any fucks about set and script trivia mid-movie? I can't deal with all these great flicks (mostly just this one tonight) being interrupted by "prime rewinds" that catch me up on the movie i've already been watching. How thoughtful. Secondary chafe (not particular to AMC): watched Groundhog Day with Bill Murray last night. Hundred minute movie carried out over two and a half hours. Damn near an hour in commercials.

And time's probably not the only thing they've got their hands on. This song just won't die, and I admire it (more) for that.

|WACK DJ's Suspected Wardrobe|
I think about a quarter of the BC population was on Nantucket this weekend and at the risk of losing the respect of some readers I feel obligated to give credit where credit is due, and by golly credit is due to the angel who was spinning on Sunday and Monday afternoon for 97.7, the WACK. With the exception of one or two questionable picks, every song was entirely conducive to the fratmosphere of day-drinking on what has to be one of the waspiest places on earth. Immaculate display of pure dominance. If I were better man I'd send an e-mail to the station demanding a promotion for whoever was manning the iPod in there. Bottom line is I respect that guy's hustle. So next time any of you return to the ACK, look no further than 97.7 to serenade you into the sunset. That's all I have to say about that.

It came to my attention just before Jenkems stopped by the CEO headquarters last night for the last time that Anthony Mackie is a bro you really oughta know. You probably do know him: based off the findings of my investigations over at IMDB he's never been in a bad movie (I pretended he wasn't in Real Steel or Eagle Eye). It all started last night with a casual 8 mile viewing when it hit me that Papa Doc was Tupac from Notorious and it all went downhill from there. Golden Globe nominated Hurt Locker? Academy Award Best Picture, Million Dollar Baby? Me and Stoop Kid's candidate for drunk flick of the year, Adjustment Bureau? Average sports movie of the decade, We Are Marshall? Pretty dope looking movie coming out next year co-starring Gosling? And just when I thought he couldn't make my pants any wetter: he goes and narrates a fresh 30 for 30.
