    Saw A Princess of Mars on a free ticket, & scored another free ticket from a survey-taker on my way out. A total narrative mess, & the definition of a loose adaptation, but quite entertaining.

    I Want a New Drug - Huey Lewis and the News

    I want a new drug
    One that won't make me sick
    One that won't make me crash my car
    Or make me feel three feet thick
    I want a new drug
    One that won't hurt my head
    One that won't make my mouth too dry
    Or make my eyes too red
    One that won't make me nervous
    Wonderin' what to do
    One that makes me feel like I feel when I'm with you
    When I'm alone with you
    I want a new drug
    One that won't spill
    One that don't cost too much
    Or come in a pill
    I want a new drug
    One that won't go away
    One that won't keep me up all night
    One that won't make me sleep all day
    One that won't make me nervous
    Wonderin' what to do
    One that makes me feel like I feel when I'm with you
    When I'm alone with you
    I'm alone with you baby
    I want a new drug
    One that does what it should
    One that won't make me feel too bad
    One that won't make me feel too good
    I want a new drug
    One with no doubt
    One that won't make me talk too much
    Or make my face break out
    One that won't make me nervous
    Wonderin' what to do
    One that makes me feel like I feel when I'm with you
    When I'm alone with you
    All alone with you
    All alone with you, yea, yea

    I Want a New Duck - Weird Al Yankovic

    I want a new duck
    One that won't try to bite
    One that won't chew a hole in my socks
    One that won't quack all night
    I want a new duck
    One with big webbed feet
    One that knows how to wash my car
    And keep his room real neat
    One that won't raid the ice box
    One that'll stay in shape
    One that's never gonna try to migrate or escape
    Or I'll tie him up with duck tape
    I want a new duck
    A mallard I think
    One that won't make a mess of my house
    Or build a nest in the bathroom sink
    I want a new duck
    One that won't steal my beer
    One that won't stick his bill in my mail
    One that knows the duck stops here
    One that won't drive me crazy waddling all around
    One who'll teach me how to swim and help me not to drown
    And show me how to get down
    How to get down baby
    Get it?
    I want a new duck
    Not a swan or a goose
    Just a drake I can dress real cute
    Think I'm gonna name him Bruce
    I want a new duck
    Not a quail or an owl
    One that won't molt to much
    One that won't smell too fowl
    One that won't beg for breadcrumbs
    Hangin' around all day
    He'd better mind his manners
    Better do just what I say
    Or he's gonna be duck patte, duck patte, yah, yah

    Now only five more and you have caught up to me and my wife.
    Granted, your two are probably equal to 4 or five of ours.

    Our two dachshunds, two Pomeranians and three Dachs/Pom combos are pretty small.
    The seven of them probably weigh about 60 pounds at most.
    A bit of a rough time for one of them.
    Our 15 year old Pom G. G. Needed to have her left eye removed because it developed melting cornea and wasn't going to heal. It apparently is very painful so the need for removal.

    Oh yeah. Moses has them beat...by a lot! I don;t know exactly how much...but we'll be getting him to the vet soon for a weigh-in and check-up.

    Tough news about your pom, Tony. 15 years?!? Wow. I know little dogs general live longer than bigger dogs...but that's impressive.

    Our experience for Poms at least has been long life.
    Five years ago my friend died at 18 years old.
    He was pretty amazing. When he was 16 and nearly blind and probably deaf he got out of our yard and was lost
    In the neighborhood for five cold and rainy days at the end of December.
    Luckily the hundreds of flyers we posted everywhere helped when some one found him walking down a street.
    I can't even imagine how he lasted and what he was doing for those we five days.

    I watched the US version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
    I didnt really care for it.
    Oh, the mystery kept me guessing. But the movie seemed overly long. Once the mystery was solved i was ready for the thing to end, but it went on another 30 minutes!
    Easily the worst Fincher movie, for me anyway. Not that the movie was "BAD", it just wasnt my thing. If it was an hour shorter i might have enjoyed it.
    I am still gonna watch the Swedish one.
    Congrats on the new dog Mike. Cute.
    I bet he sheds his weight in hair! My wife has a Yorkie. That dog and i have an understanding. I leave her alone, she leaves me alone...mostly! She still barks at me if i get up to get a drink, or move from one room to another. Any movement needs to be checked with her before hand.
    Hope you are feeling better too, Mike.

    I've always thought it would be fun to have a Standard Dachshund. My sister remarks that she saw a Standard Poodle / Irish Wolfhound cross the other day, which seemed like the epitome of the Large Dog.

    ugh more dog pictures... I mean woohoo Mike's got a new dog, yay! ;) Nice looking dog Mike, better than those little rat dogs celebrities carry around with them.

    Any pussy pictures? No one here has a cat? I am disappointed.

    Caught the new trailer to Total Recall remake, looking good, Kate Beckinsale vs Colin Farrell, no getting your arse to Mars though, its all Earthbound. Mars has been box office kryptonite since the Mission to Mars and Red Planet disasters of 2000.

    I finally saw Finchers Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, not bad, a good effort, but I prefer the original. Probably because I saw it first. And I like Noomi Rapace better. She's on the cover of the new Empire Magazine, she plays the Ripley role in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Ridley insisted she do the last scene in her skimpies as a tribute to the first Alien film... :)

    Watched My Week with Marilyn on Blu last night. I actually don't think I've seen a Marilyn Monroe film (I do have "Some Like it Hot") but of course know her iconic image. I thought Michelle Williams was wonderful in the film, showing such vulnerability and tenderness. I thought the film could have been more "meaty" but it is focused on a pretty limited time of her life.
    Considering going to see Jeff, Who Lives at Home today.

    I'm curious for the Marilyn film. I think the only Monroe film I've seen is Niagara. The one with Robert Mitchum. It was good!

    Saw Lockout last night. The one with Guy Pierce as Snake Pliskin sent to a prison satellite to save the presidents daughter. It's not a documentary, it's a sci fi film that takes place in the future. Anyways, it was NOT good! I know I know, it should be good, but it's not. It's boring. And cheap in a bad way, not a charming one. It reminded me of a shit knock off Canon film from the 80's that went straight to cable, only without the nudity. It just plods along with most of the action being of the Guy Pierce getting the piss beat out of him variety. You know you're in trouble when the most annoying guy from The Misfits (good show) is the most interesting guy in the film. 2/5

    Off to see Cabin In The Woods tonight if I can get there in time. Been lucking out with screening passes this week. :)

    smoking is his signature character trait. Nuff said.

    I saw My Week With Marilyn, it was okay I enjoyed it. Though I would never have pictured Michelle Williams as Monroesque she was good.

    I'm surprised Elizabeth has never seen a Monroe movie and Russ has only seen Niagara!! You both missed Some Like it Hot [gasps] one of the best comedies ever made. I wrote an entire hub on the film with about 50 photos.

    Sorry to hear about Lockout not being good Russ, I had hopes for that one.

    Cabin in the Woods has been getting good notices, let us know what you thought of it.

    I might go and see Battleship tomorrow, it premiered yesterday in London. It looks spectacular and refreshingly its not in 3D so it should look bright and shiny. It'll be the second film I've seen this year at the cinema starring Taylor Kitsch, this time with a short haircut and his shirt on.

    I actually got the title wrong it was River Of No Return I was thinking of. Only saw it because it was filmed down in Banff. My dad remembers the filming as a kid, they were on holiday and the film crew nearly ran them off the mountain. He didn't see Marilyn or Mitchum though. :)

    I think I own Niagara, it was part of the fox noir DVD series. I'm sure I've seen it. And I saw here in Asphalt Jungle, though that's not really a Monroe film. It's wicked awesome though, one of my faves. :)

    Honestly, it's not really a Monroe vehicle, she's barely in it! She ie more then memorable though... grrrrrrOOOOOWWWWWL!
