Only Falling Apart

  • The Monologue:
    • Stephen Hawking warns that contact with aliens could lead to them plundering our planet for resources. That's kind of the plot of Battlefield Earth, which is a major problem.
    • The Obamas will be visiting Asheville on vacation. Or, as it used to be called, Reykjavik.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • The last, say, one second of tonight's The Amazing Race was shocking and hilarious in a very unfortunate way. It's impossible to explain unless you saw the episode.
    • Went Saturday to see The Losers. It's hard not to like Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Idris Elba (and, yes, I have a soft spot for Chris Evans, for some reason), but the writing is bad. Excruciating. There's one okay plot twist, but the actual dialogue makes you cringe routinely. Jason Patric is a very good actor, but his character is written so poorly and is so overacted that I was embarrassed every time he was on the screen: embarrassed for him, embarrassed for the writers and director, embarrassed for the other actors around him, embarrassed for me sitting there and watching it, embarrassed for the theater employee who took my money with the straight face even though they knew that I was going to have to watch those scenes.
  • Random Video:
    • Yep, it's a clip from Lopez Tonight. Holy crap, it's funny:

Yeah, the Rotten Tomatoes score for The Losers is pretty bad, so I'm not surprised to hear that you didn't like it. Disappointing, because the comic was awesome.
