Two mo' movies

..starting out with:

Varg Veum: Kvinnen I Kjølsekapet (The woman in the fridge) (2008)
Fifth installment in the Veum series, and I still think it rocks. Some epic bad decisionmaking on the character's part towards the end of the movie, but for Varg Veum, this ain't nothin' new. I've read some of Gunnar Staalesen's books, but I can't remember which and it was a long time ago, so there's no conflict between the characters and scenes I associate with the series and what's in the movies. My faith in Norwegian movies is partly restored, but not enough that I dare start on some other promising-looking domestic flicks like "Mannen Som Elsket Yngve".

Be Kind, Rewind (2008)
Jack Black you motherf*cker! You're starting to amass money that should've been mine like we switched wallets. Epic crap movie. I turned it off less than one hour into the "action". Never thought it was funny at all. For purposes of comparison, I watched all of "Nacho Libre" including the bonus material, and I thought it was funny in one or two places. It's becoming abundantly clear to me that "School Of Rock" was just a fluke; the presence of Jack Black in the cast is a harbinger of absolute crap. I've enjoyed more Vin Diesel movies than I have JB flicks, so from now on, I'll avoid his short, fat ass like the plague.

I saw the woman in the fridge the other day.
I'm wondering if I should introduce the pee-pipe to clients at work.

..hmm..what am I missing here?

..hmm..what am I missing here?

... perhaps the fact that I work for clients with particular interest in pipelines?

If I can convince them that I have invented a new and better kind of pipeline, I finally could get to the money (it appears that bus driving was not as lucrative as I imagined).

Hopefully I will be over the hills and far away before they see the movie.

Are you saying that bus driving isn't awarded with mad cash flow?

Shocking, right?
