I'm on six days starting Sunday, so I might not have much time to post here during that time. So many cash-weilding automotons whoring themselves out to commerce.
What has made the past few days particularly annoying has been the Eminem cd constantly playing in an effort to bump up sales of his new greatest hits cd. Holy shit does that guy's stuff get old fast. Every time someone asked me to find his cd today I stopped myself from saying, "are you fucking kidding?
The worst songs are the ones where he sings in the hook. Fucker cannot carry a tune to save his life, and believe me, if he was singing near me that would be an issue.
Not having anything else to blog about at the moment, allow me to impart a story that gets passed around amongst actors who think as I do that a great deal of method acting is bullshit. Dustin Hoffman and Lawrence Olivier were co-stars in "Marathon Man." One sequence took place after Hoffman's character had spent a night running around in New York City. To get into character, Hoffman spent the night before shooting running about the streets. When he arrived on the set he naturally looked like hell. Olivier sat, sipping his tea, and inquired as to his condition, to which Hoffman explained that he was getting into character.
To which Olivier replied, "Dear boy, why don't you try acting?"
I used a similar line on a friend of mine who prepared for his role as the Bloody Man in Macbeth by donating blood and then exercising. Good times
