The Non-Conformist Cult Radio Show 3/12/04 #2
The weather this morning is overcast and a little on the wet side. The high temperature will drop about 30 degrees from the previous day’s high. It was in the low 80’s yesterday and it may hit 55 today. It’s that crazy North Carolina weather that I love.
On a day like today, I’d love nothing more than to lay around all day in bed with a special lady. I’m not talking sex… I’m talking about cuddling, talking, listening to music, reading, and watching a movie. The only times when leaving the bed would be permissible… Getting up to use the bathroom, getting a different CD, book, DVD, or getting something to eat or drink.
I haven’t always been the “cuddling” type.
When I was dating “Jones”, she was all about some cuddling. She would slink over next to me and say with her thick and sexy southern drawl, “Lets cuddle.” I wasn’t given time to even form a response before her hands were around me, a leg was draped over my lap, and her head was on my chest.
I would try to pry myself loose and say something like…. “It’s hot. I don’t want your 98.6 next to mine. Okay?”
As I have gotten older, I’ve become more of a cuddler. I was dating “Jones” when I in my 20’s and when I got into my 30’s, the “cuddling bug” bit me.
I started dating my ex-fiancée and that’s when I got the karmic whiplash from the “Jones” era. I wanted to cuddle and she NEVER did. Trying to get close to her was like trying to cuddle up next to a bucking bronco. She would push me and pull away. I fully got what was coming to me.
I don’t know if it’s because I’ve mellowed with age or what, but I’m all about some cuddling these days. Hell, I’m even wearing pink t-shirts to hard rock clubs!
I’ve never said never to pink tees… It just hasn’t been my first choice of color when it comes to my wardrobe.
But today wouldn’t have worked anyway… I have a lot of things on my plate to do.
It took me two days, but I finally finished watching the dreadful film Holiday.
It stars Kate Winslett, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black. And for some reason, Eli Wallach chose to “slum” it out by appearing in this flick.
Holiday was borderline awful and yet I kept watching. I can’t even begin to tell you the reasons why I watched the whole thing. The film was total dreck and devoid of anything real.
Don’t get me wrong, I really dig a good romantic film, but this one is so sweet that it will make you double over and heave.
Two women (Winslett and Diaz) find themselves at the end of rotting relationships. They find each other online and decide to “swap” houses for a holiday/vacation. Blah, blah, blah… The film moves on until they each find the “love of their life”.
It’s total crap, folks. Jack Black plays a “good guy” who works as a music composer that scores films. And I just can’t take him seriously. Even though he’s trying to be a serious actor in the role, I just can’t get by his facial expressions. They come across as sarcastic and smarmy. He’s totally miscast in this film. He’s become the “new” Leslie Nielson.
If you’re into romantic films and you’d like to cuddle up next to the one you love, by all means check out Happy Accidents. It’s a romantic film with a slight sci-fi edge to it. It’s perfect for you ladies with a guy that’s not into romantic films. And the cool thing… It’s so undiscovered that when you find a copy at Circuit City or Best Buy, you’re only going to shell out about 5 bucks for it.
I gave Holiday 2 out of 5 stars. On the Netflix grading scale, that means I “didn’t like it”. Happy Accidents got the full 5, baby!
