"Sorry I haven't blogged recently. I've been... occupado. Like a restroom on a mexican airline.
Not having a job makes you think about things. Like... "I wish I had a job right now" and "Not having a job stinks."
But this isn't the forum for that, is it?
No, this is where I spout off random bits of stuff that I think up, usually while I'm in the shower or driving somewhere or falling asleep (all separate occurrences of course).
Soap. I think it gives me rashes.
Oh wait! That wasn't something I wanted to write here... although I did think that in the shower the other day.
I want to talk to you all about a new ratio I've developed. It relates particularly to movies.
It is the.... brrrrrrrumrumrumrumrumbadaboombadaboom.......
Advertising Amount to Quality Ratio! Yeeeah!
Here it goes... The more terrible a movie is, the more they have to advertise. Conversely, the better a movie is, the fewer the advertisements.
|A graph from somewhere important.|
I think the data speaks for itself. This has been researched over nearly a decade of vigorous TV watching by yours truly. And I can prove it.
Cowboys vs. Aliens. Awful movie. They started advertising 2 years before this movie came out. Two years!
All the terrible R-rated summer comedies. Bad Teacher. The Change-up. Bucky Larson. That movie hasn't come out yet but it is absolutely guaranteed to be garbage. (disclaimer... I haven't seen any of these summer R-rated comedies. I'm just good at "judging movies by their cases")
Another movie that I haven't seen but will be stupid is Columbiana. They advertise that movie every 5 minutes. Same with Shark Night 3D. If you put 3D in the movie title, you know what you're getting yourself into.
This brings me to the stupidest movie I have ever seen. I don't remember how much they advertised it... but I'm assuming this was a billion dollar campaign. I'm talking about the Love Guru. I made it about 30 minutes into the movie before calling it quits. This movie was the worst. The jokes all fell so flat it made me"
barf. I actually don't know where I was going with this. But that's a good a place as any to stop.
