Uh, sorry.

That last post was kinda, well, terrible. I think I've hit a blogging brick wall. I probably hit it before I actually started this blog, but that's just timing. Here's an apology of a link since I am always scouring the blogosphere thinking of you. If you obsess about The Sopranos and music as much as I do, then you're going to love this™.

I liked your last post. I was still trying to come up with a clever comment.

cherry's totally lying... he was just complaining to me on my blog about how much that post sucked butt.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

OK, that's true. But why you got to be a hater, Mr. Shain?

cherry1 - you know, you can always resort to flattery with me. no need to be clever. i'm clever enough for us all. zing!

shain - i thought we talked about this. you never listen to me.

cherry2 - he's a hater by nature. can't be helped, just managed.

Mr. Shain said...

managed like a fox...

sounds like someone's having another blog self-pity party.

Dan said...

and apology accepted. great link. My favorites were the Curb Your Enthusiasm, the Mountain Goats, Okkervil River, and the Nationals, dubbed over the scene.

Still think that ending was a copout fuckjob.

when am i not having a blog pity party? i mean really.

and, someday, you are going to wake up and realize what the ending means to you, then david chase's vision will become clear. or not. i'm still in the brilliant camp, but if a movie comes out, i'll be in the DC's a fucking sellout asshole camp.

we should be in bed. it's late.

I like the onion rings... should of had them for breakfast instead of All-Bran.

Dan said...

you're right, we should be in bed.

someday you're going to realize why I'm so pissed about the ending. Probably in about 6 months. I got into a discussion last night with the guy at whose house I watched it, who was in the copoutfuckjob camp when it happened, but has since switched over to the loving it camp. He was trying to convince me that it was David Chase's thing that he was trying to write the whole thing irrespective of the audience, which is absolute horseshit, because it's just art school narcissistic delusion to deny the existence and influence of the audience in a project like this. I'm not suggesting some populist socialist shit like the vision should be subjugated to the wishes of the masses, but don't deny that the masses are an element of your creation. He's not putting on Sopranos skits in a cave by candlelight. All the stuff he was doing with jacking up the tension was done intentionally to create a suspenseful excitement (in whom? the audience) so as to make the mysterious cut to black more dramatic and to elicit that WTF response. If he's ignoring the audience, why is he cinematically fucking with them in the name of his own dramatic achievement? It still smacks of look at me, look at what I can do to you.

But I'll get over it.

9er - yeah, all bran is no good. onion rings, much better. i don't see why they can't be a cereal what with the existence of cookie crisp and cinnamon french toast crunch.

dan - i love it when you're sassy! your argument is quite compelling and has caused a review of my previous evaluation, but i still think i liked it. perhaps we will have to agree to disagree. for now.

Dan said...

ok. for now ...
