Short Post and a Song #74: I would buy the DVD of a movie I didn't even like just for that blooper reel.

Friday night Batdan and I watched Don Jon, a meh movie starring Joseph Gordon Levitt as a young man addicted to internet porn.

Dan Jan: (As the closing credit begin to roll) All right, now it's time for the all bloopers of Joseph Gordon Levitt pretending to masturbate.

We were both very disappointed when this did not turn out to be the case.


"Life in Technicolor II" by Coldplay

I've loved this song for years and it proved very useful when I was doing some feverish work on my new WIP yesterday and came out with 5,000 words. It occurred to me afterward that I'd never actually seen this song's music video, so I set out to change that.

And it is so fucking weird! Coldplay is doing a show at a church birthday party or something, only they're puppets for some reason. The kids in the audience look as confused by the directorial choices in this video as I am. Around 3:29, the dude with a camera realizes that he's catching puppets without strings on camera and will therefore become filthy rich. I'm surprised it took him three and a half minutes to realize that, but I guess the clowns on flaming motorcycles are what convinced him.

Yet despite its weirdness (or probably BECAUSE of it), I love this music video. It suits my WIP perfectly, especially when puppet Will Champion gives a little girl a miniature set of drumsticks at the end.
