I'll Take Potpourri For 2000, Alex...

Saw "Borat" this weekend. Wow, that was unfunny. I mean, really, really unfunny. And I was looking forward to seeing it, too. I also have a hard time believing that it was as "unscripted" as they would like us to believe. Very disappointing. I guess I should have followed Public Enemy's advice, and not believed the hype.

It really sucks when you forget that it's Friday night, and you turn on your alarm, so that you wake up at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Today would have been Jack Kerouac's 85th birthday.

I 've read a few of his books, and I could say all the cliche things about "On The Road"(some of them would be true), but I think I'll leave it at Happy Birthday, and thank you.

I saw the repeat of Lily Allen on SNL this weekend, and I must admit, I am tempted to pick up her record....Has anyone heard it ? Can I get a yay or nay on it ?

30 Rock is quickly becoming one of the funniest shows on television.

Coke Zero is a magical beverage. Cherry Coke Zero is pretty tasty as well.

I'm still kind of reeling from the "Killing of Captain America" thing, and I haven't even seen the comic yet.

Which word do you think is used more in decribing blogs- ramblings, or musings ?

And I just want to wish everyone a very happy and healthy Commonwealth Day. I know I can't wait to get home and see what the Commonwealth Elf has left for me beneath the Commonwealth Bush !! I hope it's those roller skates I asked for !!!

You didn't like it? I thought it was not as good as the hype, but still pretty damn funny. About 90% of it was unscripted, which is why I found it as funny as I did. Scripted, it wouldn't have been nearly as good.

Avi- I really didn't. And I guess "unscripted" isn't the word I was looking for, I believe that it was largely unscripted, but I think the scenes were more set up than they would have us believe. I think it was mostly improv, but I think more people were in on the joke.But even that didn't bug me, i just didn't find a lot of it as funny as I expected it to be. I did think the fight in the hotel was hilarious, though.

we also saw Borat last weekend and found it completely unfunny. like, uncomfortably unfunny. and dumb. and it certainly looked scripted/ set up. and what was with that scene where he was destroying everything in that antique shop? did anyone over the age of 16 find that amusing? it just pissed me off. what an ass. but i hardly think i was the target audience.
