Movies not as good as Little Miss Sunshine....

Even with Cable, my DVD player has been buzzing this snowy week.

Strangers with Candy: A few funny moments but no Little Miss Sunshine.
The Groomsmen: All of Ed Burns movies seem like they are from the same short story collection. This one is no exception. If you liked Brothers McMullen or She's the One or Sidewalks of New York, you will like this one too. I happen to like them.
OH in OHIO: This movie made me long for Sex and the City. It has the racy topics but not the smart, genuine writing. It also lead me to ask, what good movies has Danny DeVito been in? Twins, Throw Momma from the Train, Death to Smoochy?
America Dreamz: I am not sure if I watched American Idol if it would have helped, but I don't think so. This one has potential to be a Drop Dead Gorgeous but it falls very short. The Politicos will especially hate it.
UPDATE: Also note as good as Little Miss Sunshine but funnier than expected: Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby.

Also, for the Xmas Gang.... It appears there are no Colorado Cuddle Parties at this time. (which by the way are not free but are probably a deal compared to other Cults that SNG's bro has been invited to attend.) They do offer Facilitator Training. Interested, DHP?

American dreamzzz was just a snooze to me .. I don't watch Idol either, but it wouldn't have helped, because this supposed "satire" hits none of its targets

“What a Cuddle Party Is: A structured, safe workshop on boundaries, communication, intimacy and affection. A drug and alcohol-free way to meet fascinating people in a relaxing environment. A laboratory where you can experiment with what makes you feel safe and feel good.”

Ok, this is the prime example of what is wrong with the youth today. They have spent way too much time relating to each other virtually that they have to be taught how to touch each other without violating boundaries. And what is this about no drugs or alcohol?

Want to experience empathy, deepen your connections to people, be filled with a profound sense of well-being? Take some fucking ecstasy like the rest of us did. Jesus, what is this world coming to?

I would probably make a very bad cuddle party facilitator without the right chemicals.

I hated Stragers with Candy. How can something written by and starring Amy Sedaris and Steven Colbert be so damn bad? What a shame.

The Cuddle Party thing is just flat out weird, especially since it is targeted to adults, seemingly, not teens. Perhaps the cult mentality has appeal these days...seems to be catching on.

Um, "adults" of the younger generation. Not teens, but those who are in their actual twenties. Good god, what has the internet done to them? I'm telling you . . . ecstacy is the answer to the pyramid scheme that is "cuddle parties".

“There’s no question that one of the challenges today is how to engage Generation Y, the millennial generation. They are manifestly different from Generation X, my generation. They’re much more optimistic and entrepreneurial, and they’re much more tech savvy. We grew up believing that nothing was permanent. We grew up with marriages that ended in divorce,” Buckingham explains. “Generation Ys got prizes for graduating from first grade, for coming in eighth in a race, or just for just showing up. They are the most rewarded, recognized, and praised generation in living memory. So they walk into the workplace feeling massively entitled. After six weeks on the job, they expect a promotion.”
