according to this article, james cameron's 'avatar' is said to usher a slew of 3D movies into 2010.

according to one nimrod: "I'm going to go and see [avatar]. It doesn't really matter how good it is, I want to go and see it because of the technological advances he's made and I think a lot of other people will as well."

just what we need. more flicks that spend disgusting amounts of money on computer tech in order to compensate for a total lack of plot, characterization, and dialogue.

yeah, it can be "cool" and "keen" to have shit jump out at you. but the novelty WILL wear off. and nobody wants to wear glasses when they don't HAVE TO. oh wait. apparently hipsters do.

but all this really means, is the production of more yet more CG garbage.

i don't care about computer-generated visual effects.

give me cronenberg or tom savini any motherfuckin day of the week.

i actually have nightmares. the future. scoleosis-inducing amounts of time in front of our computers and HD TV's. i mean, more than we do currently. which is already revolting. it actually makes me sick and fearful. in that buy-a-cabin-in-the-middle-of-nowhere-and-hoard-food-and-medical-supplies-kind-of-way.

i want to, like, see some actual fucking real talent come 2010.
is that too much to ask??
i want sweat and blood and GUTS.

no meat in unicorn steak.

i saw care failure and her band die mannequin perform in my home town a few years back. she rocked the fuckin house. and i finally (as in a few weeks ago) got around the downloading the albums, fully anticipating more of the same rock slaughtering.

i downloaded albums how to kill, slaughter daughter, and unicorn steak. first off: they are all the same fucking album. die mannequin has basically released the same album 3 times over from 2006 to the present. save yourself the space, and go for the steak (which features the same 4 or so songs and then some).

speaking of steak, let's talk music. there is no doubt that care failure puts on a show. but that greatness doesn't really translate to the recording studio. recall my previous rock chick post. i don't retract what i said: she rocks HARD. but songs like 'do it or die' make me want to seriously hang myself. the only interesting tunes are from the how to kill ep. which means that they aren't improving with age.

given mannequin's album covers/album names/song titles/REVIEWS!, you would expect something darker. heavier. maybe something like the distillers, since you can't help comparing care failure to brody dalle when you see her onstage. instead you get whinygirl singing with disappointing pop-punk backup. not to mention slightly lame lyrics?

ok, like i said: some of the tunes are decent. but they mostly leave me thanking god for bands like 7 Year Bitch.
