The Rest of the (Worst) Best!

Just because it's a four-day weekend complete with gin drinking, beer sweating, BBQ eatin', sushi swilling...wait, can you "swill" a sushi? No? Dang.

The complete rundown of other stuff I wrote this year with hilarious commentary:

-I travel to the future and see Dakota Fanning accept an oscar for coffee bukkake.

-I argue against Afro Samurai and claim it is the worst thing to happen to anime for a long, long time. Not to mention how incredibly stereotypical and racist it is.

-Reno 911! The Movie feature with hilarious podcast somewhere on the WSN site... (hint: right hand side, click the iPod)

-Review of 300 that orignially referenced Frank Miller's ex-wife Lynn Varley. That was taken out without my knowledge, so the copy staff applied it to the Queen of Sparta being the King of Sparta's ex-wife. Yep, college reporting is awesome.

-Air Guitar Nation feature with best hede ever: Air Force One!

-I interviewed Bob Saget again. But the copy staff thought his name was "Sagat" and that he could do a TIGER, TIGER UPPERCUT on the hede and photo credit. It's right in the article. Further proving the idea that college kids are high.

-Interview with "Sacco and Vanzetti" director Peter Miller and the film process.

-I explain why I didn't like Grind House.

-Feature on the Aqua Teen Hunger Force flick. (And watching porn with Dana "Master Shake" Snyder, as well as being awkward around the Venture Brothers creators.)

-Q/A with the creative forces behind Tribeca premiering Palo Alto.

as for other stuff, namely at The Reeler:

- I looked at the 2007 Tisch First Run Film Festival.

-Did a think piece on midnight movies at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival with quotes from J. Hoberman and "Black Sheep's" Jonathan King.

-A brief sit-down with director Bong Joon-Ho on The Host.

-Attended the 2007 New York Comic Con with briefs from Eli Roth, "The Spirit" movie and a crying Robin cosplayer.

-Went to the "Aqua Teen" after party".

-Interviewed Micha X. Peled about his amazing China Blue documentary.

-And followed up with "An Inconvenient Truth" director Davis Guggenheim about attacks on his film.

-Not to mention tried my hand looking at the 60s with a Peter Whitehead retrospective.

What you do, boy?

Where have I been for the last four years? What in the name of God was that whole "degree" thing about? Why do I suddenly want to chainsmoke cloves and brunch...oh, right. Right. College.

But specifically, working.

Rather than keep up with the whole "clean-cut, omigodplsemployme!!1eleventy" thing I'm doing otherwise, here's a few fun things I've been up to since the last time I decided to write in this here online journal of joy.

-I made a Blog for the NYU student paper. It is slowly moving forward. It will be awesome soon.

-I wrote about the 2007 New York Comic Con and didn't use any of my brief interviews with R.Stevens, the Digital Pimp crew or find Mitch Clem. I did see a Robin cry, though.

-Listened to Kazuo Hara discuss film, as opposed to my own haphazard writing on his flicks.

-I made a podcast and video interview. I will link to neither. They're on the WSN website.

-Interviewed Satoshi Kon about his latest film, "Paprika," and tried to do the ol' analysis thing. Lord knows if it worked or not.

And that's about it. There's a bunch of other stuff that involves air guitar, socialist documentaries and chinese sweatshop labor.

Oh, and I interviewed Derrick. They really like hip-hop.
