Phone sex + Justin Long = awesome

Oh that Justin Long is one hilarious guy! I remember watching him in that TV series Ed, where he was just a young little nerd that was irritating as hell, and now look what he’s doing. He’s done hilarious parts as a gay porn star, a Mac, and my favorite is his starring role in Accepted.

Now the latest thing he’s appearing in (even though it looks like a small supporting role) is an indie film called For a Good Time, Call… (yeah it’s an irritating title that messes with the punctuation in my sentence structure, but read on!)

It looks absolutely hilarious, about a pair of unlikely roommates who end up starting a phone sex line in order to pay the bills.

For a Good Time, Call… also stars Ari Graynor (Whip It, What’s Your Number?, and even an episode of Veronica Mars!), Lauren Miller (who also co-wrote the script), and what looks like a hilarious cameo by Seth Rogen.

It’s also the feature film directorial-debut of Jamie Travis, who has directed not one but TWO Tegan and Sara music videos! And just because I love Tegan and Sara, here are those two music videos:

I don’t know if this movie is coming to Singapore or not. But I sure as hell hope it does!

The day the Fresh Prince became Will Smith

It’s the 4th of July!

Just think, that on this day 16 years ago, a TV sitcom and small-time rapper named The Fresh Prince will graduate into a big mega Hollywood A-lister named Will Smith, whose mere name can guarantee big box office bucks for even crappy movies like Wild Wild West?

WOW! I was blown away by ID4 when I first saw it in 1996. The “rallying speech” by Bill Pullman might’ve sucked big time, but still, this movie had all the right ingredients going for it.

After all, it turned this guy:

Boom shake shake, shake the room!

Into this guy:

Welcome to Earf!

Congratulations, Will Smith! It was totally the right call for you to do Wild Wild West instead of The Matrix!

Here’s more Fresh Prince goodness!


Have a Gothic Christmas!

I was driving my parents’ car this morning, and had no choice but to listen to regular radio stations, and Gold 90.5 FM were pretty much playing Christmas songs non-stop. I mean, I know it’s Christmas and all, and I love the season, but that sorta bugged me a lot.

Anyway, I just felt compelled to look up some non-traditional Christmas songs, and found this one. Enjoy!

Merry Gothic Christmas, folks!

Have yourself a Gothic Christmas!


6 wedding songs we’d like to hear

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander

Is this the marriage you want?

My wife and I are at the stage in our lives where we are increasingly attending more and more weddings, as friends and cousins get hitched. One thing we’ve noticed is that the music played tends to be more or less the same. It’s always Jason Mraz, it’s always that Bruno Mars song that really shouldn’t be in any sensible wedding… you know the one I’m talking about.

About-to-be-married couples please take note: the chorus of Marry You is romantic enough, but listen to the verses and realize that the marriage described in the song would be something like Britney’s 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander. In fact, if Britney’s marriage had taken place 7 years later, she totally would’ve played Marry You as she marched down the aisle of a cheap Vegas chapel.

“If you wake up and wanna break up, that’s cool.” – Marry You, Bruno Mars

Anyway, I thought about the kind of songs that I’d like to hear at weddings, so I put together a quick list of not-so-overplayed songs that would be great for weddings.

Meat Loaf – I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)

Okay, a lot of you have a preoccupation with that “that” is in the song, but really that’s not important. What’s important is that this is an epic rock song, with motorcycles, cops, vampires, and… wait, that’s just the music video. Even so, the lyrics in the song are awesome!

G: Will you cater to every fantasy that I’ve got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me to places that I’ve never known?

B: I can do that!

For the record, if you listen closely to the lyrics towards the end, he does indeed say what “that” is.

Which music star would you lose your virginity to?

My brother once told me a story about a friend of his who lost her virginity to James Iha from The Smashing Pumpkins. I’m not a huge fan of the Pumpkins or anything, but that is just an awesome anecdote to be able to drop. Of course, the James Iha story didn’t end too well, as he was a complete jerk who obviously used her for sex, but still it’s a unique anecdote that would be great to share at her future wedding.

On the flip side, if you ask me about my experience and I have nothing to offer except for a story about losing it to my ex-girlfriend, which is the same story as millions of other people out there. However, if I had the chance to rewrite history, I’d probably want a similar story, and these are the Top 5 music chicks (in no particular order) that I’d love to lose my virginity to.

Note that I was a teen of the 90s, so that’s where I’m turning my sights to.

Liz Phair

Wouldn’t you want Liz Phair to be your blowjob queen?

C’mon, anyone around in the 90s would fall hard for Liz Phair. Not only is she a little firecracker of hotness, but her frank and descriptive songs about sex should drive any teen wild. I mean, those lyrics can be pretty filthy… like porno filthy! And what kinda teen boy wouldn’t want to lose their virginity to a potty-mouthed rock star who loves to sing about getting horny and fucking?

Sidenote: My wife and I have an agreement that we’re allowed to have guilt-free extramarital sex with a selected celebrity. Mine is Liz Phair.

Nina Gordon

Music while you cook

If you’re a hot-blooded teen in the 90s and you see the opening shot of the Volcano Girls video where Nina Gordon is thrashing around under the bed covers, that’s just going to stir some shit in your loins. I LOVED that song back then (and still do), and if I was at a Veruca Salt concert and Nina Gordon beckoned for me to go backstage with her, you can bet your ass I’m charging my scrawny ass past those burly security guards.

Belinda Carlisle

Belinda Carlisle

Heaven is a place on Earth

Okay, technically Belinda Carlisle is more of an 80s icon, but she was still active in the 90s, and was still pretty hot then. Her clean-cut pop star image might not be the kind of thing that really gets a guy horny, but she had a totally rocking body with curves in all the right places. But the biggest reason why I put her on this list is because Heaven is a place on Earth is one of those songs that will get airplay till the end of time, and imagine being able to whip out that anecdote about losing your virginity in Belinda’s heaven EVERY TIME you hear that song on the radio.

Lisa Loeb

Glasses are hot

Anyone who was alive in the 90s would’ve totally fallen in love with Lisa Loeb’s Stay. This sweet-looking bespectacled singer might not be like the rocker or hot-bodied girls in this list, but she had her own girl-next-door charms. She wasn’t the kind of girl that would randomly pick a guy to fuck backstage, but she might’ve been the one that you’d bump into at a quiet cafe or hotel bar near the gig venue, and then have a good conversation with and then maybe a nice relationship would follow. Then again, maybe she’d just use you for a one night stand too.

Shirley Manson

Shirley Manson

Alien sex… mmm…

I’ll be the first to admit that Shirley Manson is a little bit weird-looking, but then again, I like that. It’s like the Mena Suvari style of unusual, alien-looking chicks, and she was also pretty mesmerizing in the Queer video. Would she be as hot in the morning when the dark eye shadow is washed off? I dunno, but honestly she’d probably have kicked you out of her hotel room long before you get to that.

Sidenote: Having watched the second season of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, I find Shirley Manson incredibly annoying now.

Almost but no – Jewel

Are you sure she’s not British?

Jewel’s first album is awesomely depressing and I love it to pieces, and she’s got a rack that can blow your mind, but there’s just something about that smile that I can’t get over.

Who would make your list of music stars to lose your virginity to?


Tegan & Sara interlude

And because we don’t have anything funny to say right now, here’s Tegan & Sara to provide the amusement instead.

Why won’t they come and perform in Singapore?

Funny Canadian girls


Whatever happened to the Power Ballad?

Back in the 80s and 90s, power ballads were all the rage and you couldn’t listen to the radio without hearing them. Actually, it was already big during the 70s, but I wasn’t listening to music then due to a slight case of not being born yet. Anyway, Bon Jovi pretty much made a career doing it, and soon you had people holding up lighters at every other concert out there.

Power Ballads rock

So what happened to them? I mean, you don’t get stuff like that on the radio anymore. It’s all pop, punk, and hip hop. Admittedly, a lot of power ballads were very tacky and probably led to the genre’s downfall, but still it sure beats all the Justin Bieber and Kesha stuff that’s flooding the radio now.

Just to do my part to try to bring these power ballads back, I went onto the Bob forums to see which power ballads those guys liked, and made a playlist for you guys.

  • Skid Row – I remember you
  • Motley Crue – Home Sweet Home
  • Def Leppard – Two Steps Behind
  • Scorpions – Still Loving You
  • Whitesnake – Here I Go Again
  • Styx – Show Me The Way
  • Aerosmith – Dream On
  • Aerosmith – I don’t want to miss a thing
  • Guns and Roses – November Rain
  • Heart – Alone
  • REO Speedwagon – Can’t Fight This Feeling
  • Bad English – When I See You Smile
  • Roxette – Listen to your Heart
  • Roxette – Fading Like a Flower
  • Roxette – It must have been love
  • Poison – Every Rose has its Thorn
  • Journey – Faithfully
  • Eric Carmen – Make me lose Control

Okay, there are definitely a lot more greats out there, so if we’re missing something, drop a comment and tell us your favorite power ballads!
